man that scene of taki going through the fabrics of time where its all rainbow was beautiful. also i realize ive almost only watched anime movies so far i need to stop idk why im watching so many i dont like anime all that much im not a geek i swear

RoboCop (1987)

1.30.24

THOUGHTS

Watched on 1.30.24

classic movie was fun to watch on my crt. i really liked the stop motion on the big robot guy

Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo (2012)

1.24.24

THOUGHTS

Watched on 1.24.24

i honestly didnt really like this movie sorry sports fans. it gave me the same feeling you get from reboots of classic tv shows that completely miss the mark idk!! also the animation in this one is different and looks really weird i cant quite put my finger on it but the characters looks weird. they also use cgi too much and it looks goofy. there were some tropy lines as well like yelling activate when starting the ship or the eva was silly more of a nitpick but didnt like it regardless. there are still elements i like but overall not a massive fan.

as for the whole series (as of now) i think it is sorta a waste. the 2nd movie was really good but the first was alright and this one was kinda bad. it had to be a lot more rushed since its condensed into movies but i feel like they focused on the wrong parts sometimes leading to the characters not being as likable. for example, i was already not really a fan of asuka in the show but her one redeeming quality to me wasnt really touched on in the movies. she never really talks about her personal issues and is just a brick wall the whole time. i get theres another movie coming but still feels like that should have been introduced by now. yeah i could probably go on for a while about why i dont like it but i dont wanna so yeah sorry. maybe im just an eva old head and im blind to the new school hip movies i dont know

also i found out the 4th movie is already out idk how im so stupid obv 3.0+1.0 is the 4th idk i thought it was some special release of the 3rd movie i will watch that next

Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance (2009)

1.18.24

THOUGHTS

Watched on 1.18.24

this movie rules a whole lot more than the last one i dont know if i get why they introduced the new girl character but maybe will be explained more in the next movie idk. but i loved shinji and reis characters and how they interacted in this they are my favorite characters and i think i liked how they were portrayed more in this than the show!!

Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone (2007)

1.12.24

THOUGHTS

Watched on 1.12.24

Its been almost a year since i watched the anime now im finally getting around to watching this. I love the theming of these movies even though i havent seen them yet as is obvious by me labeling versions of this site as 1.11,2.22,3.33 and so on. I also think the titles like you are (not) alone is really cool.

This movie was really cool but kinda just because evangelion was cool I dont really see the point unless the next movies change more which im sure they will. but this movie was just evangelion trimmed down so still good just not really necessary imo!

Ghost In The Shell (1988)

1.6.24

THOUGHTS

Watched on 1.6.24

The aesthetics of this movie are so cool!!!! the city looks super cool its like a dark version of neo tokyo from akira. I thought I would really like this movie just based on what I had seen of it and I did like it but I also didnt really love the plot. It was still good though just the plot felt a little lackluster to me for some reason. Other than that really good movie I really enjoyed it!!

wasnt really feeling the singles leading up to this, but the album turned out good! the singles even sound better after listening to them within the album. im still taking future nostalgia over this but thats a high bar to clear. my fav tracks were whatcha doing, anything for love, and happy for you.

4.22.24

THOUGHTS

Been meaning to listen to gambino for a while, tried to listen to because the internet but didnt finish it for whatever reason. this feels like an album im gonna need to listen to at the right time for it to really click for me but as of right now i like riot and me and your mama the most.

Section.80 - Kendrick Lamar (2011)

4.16.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 4.16.24

I listened to this once a long time ago and didnt really like it, but gave it a relisten and its pretty good! obv not as good as other kendrick projects but it has some gems like hol' up and rigamortis.

JEFFERY - Young Thug (2016)

4.15.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 4.15.24

2nd thug album ive listened to. i think i like this more than barter 6 idk im gonna have to give that a proper relisten. favorite tracks are "Future Swag" & "Floyd Mayweather". im still trying to find some really good thug songs cause i absolutely love metro spider off of heroes and villains and want some more songs where thug raps like that.

WE STILL DON'T TRUST YOU - Future & Metro Boomin (2024)

4.12.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 4.12.24

metro and future have so much chemistry its pretty bonkers. they dropped two albums in 3 weeks and the 2nd album even has bonus tracks. i definitely like the first one more but this is a good record too. im a little dissappointed that j cole is on it, not only cause he folded on the beef but also his verse just isnt really all that good. the rocky feature is really nice hopefully we get his album soon!! my fav tracks are show of hands & overload.

Black Yacht Rock Vol. 1 - Pharrell Williams (2024)

3.22.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 3.22.24

This album is so good I am somewhat surprised!! I knew it would be good but this might be my top album of the year so far if not its top 3. no skips for me but my favs are 'Like That', 'Type Sh*t', and 'WTFYM' i think, but my favs always change.

9 - Kenny Mason (2024)

3.17.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 3.17.24

SLIP and US are my 2 favs. pretty good album i just wish kenny would drop a full length album rather than these smaller mixtape type things. also 4 MY is really bad i dont like it.

2.20.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 2.20.24

Feels Like We Only Go Backwards was my first tame impala song and is my favorite song of his. for some reason i listened to currents and the slow rush before this i guess i just like listening to latest releases first idk

Scrapyard - Quadeca (2024)

2.16.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 2.16.24

i love this for 2 reasons 1. the songs are great and 2. it compiles all the scrapyards into one release so i will be able to listen to them easier now thank you quadeca..... the new songs are super cool they are a lot rawer than the ones that were already released mostly. texas blue is a great song i already know thats gonna be in rotation for a while

VULTURES 1 - ¥$, Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign (2024)

2.9.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 2.9.24

i cant believe it actually came out!! it didnt feel real/official at first but it was real and its better than expected!! i thought this album was gonna be a little all over the place, but he cut some songs (hopefully will be on other volumes) and this tracklist fits together pretty nicely. its super dark and gives yeezus vibes so i really like it. carnival ended up being way better than i expected as well. my fav song might be GOOD (DONT DIE) or BURN or PROBLEMATIC idk yet

THE MOUSE & THE MASK - DANGERDOOM (2005)

2.6.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 2.6.24

THOUGHTS

I had listened to Scientists & Engineers when it came out but never got around to checking the album out until now!! it was def worthy of the grammy i can see why people are upset travis scott didnt win but this is a great album i love it

THOUGHTS

Listened on 1.23.24

JPEGMAFIA has been at the top of my list of artists to listen to for a while now, and when scaring the hoes came out i listened to that and really liked it! i love this album i think i like it more than scaring the hoes its super well put together and just sounds so good

hypochondriac - brakence (2022)

1.14.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 1.14.24

first time listening to brakence outside of his feature on a la carte by quadeca and whatever songs my friend plays in the car. the transitions between songs are really nice!! my favorite songs here are stung, intellectual greed, & 5g. I dont listen to much hyperpop/glitchpop (yet) but based on the hype this album gets and just how good it is imo I 100% recommend it even if you dont think youd like this type of music cause I didnt think I would until recently so give it a darn shot!!

DOA - ericdoa (2024)

1.14.24

THOUGHTS

dancinwithsomebawdy is a perfect song tbh!! rest of the album is great too

american dream - 21 Savage (2024)

1.12.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 1.12.24

Lots of new music today!!! Starting with the 21 Savage Album. Some favorite of mine off first listen are née-nah, dark days, & prove it. Pretty good album, but didnt knock my socks off. lyrics can be pretty goofy as usual but also a lot of songs start with samples and they never let the sample ride which is a little underwhelming.

INSANO - Kid Cudi (2024)

1.12.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 1.12.24

Not really going into this one too excited since kid cudi has been pretty hit or miss lately and i didnt like the singles but I am open to cudi surprising me! It has DJ Drama on it which is getting pretty tired at this point. I gotta say this album really isnt good but I expected that. the XXXTENTACION feature just being one of his already released songs with cudi on it is really funny leave the man alone

Super Departure - i-dep (2006)

1.1.24

THOUGHTS

Listened on 1.1.24

I have already been listening to 'Sign of Summer' off this album for a while, but recently decided to give the full album a listen. Its really good the highlights for me are "Sign of Summer', 'Don't Stop', & 'ジャンプ!'. Def recommend it if you are interested in japanese jazz/electro etc.!!!
