Coincidences happen all the time in media. Attack on Titan also has German elements. The opening song is obvious enough but as the movie may have pointed out (I can't recall properly), Erin "Jäger" means Hunter. They hunt Kaiju, Eren hunts Titans. Armin also means something basically like soldier - specifically "army man". German for army is Armee or Heer and man is mann so put two and two together and you can get Armin or Hermann, the latter being an actual name.

I saw Gravity 3D and Captain Phillips back to back. Stranded in space and stranded at sea, both movies with universal praise. A very good time for cinema.

Two movies I want to see, but with actors I don't really care for. Ehh, such a difficult decision.

I wonder what that would be like. To watch a movie that you are in.

Johnny Depp doesn't either.

I would probably be the same. I know that when we had to make short films in drama class I always hated watching them
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Did you read the same article I did? I don't think I could resist watching something that I starred in.

Probably not any worse than watching a video of yourself. Most actors will separate the character they're playing from themselves, so even on screen they can think of it as a different person - especially since they know all that went into it, the costuming, the green screen, maybe even some people they're playing off of not even having been there when they shot the scene.

But watching your own movies can probably be more disconcerting on a professional level: "Oh... they decided to go with that take"
"I could've done better there" etc.

*shrug* I'm sure most actors like watching their movies and a lot of people who are not actors would like watching something they've starred in. But I can understand why some actors don't from my own experience with is

It's separating yourself from the movie that's hard you watch it and you'll start thinking about what it took to film the scene or you focus too much on your screwups.

Ya, that's probably true.

When I was younger, other people's opinions never mattered to me at all because I never heard any. I liked the prequels of Star Wars for their amazing choreography and CG and tend to block out the bad parts, making the movie more forgiving. I realized that ranting on something doesn't really make it go away. If you don't like something, the best you can do, is either be constructive about it, or don't talk about it at all.

Maybe it's just because I was a kid when I first watched it, but I always thought phantom menace wasn't all that bad. It's probably because the story revolves around a sci-fi kid who fucks shit up. Jar-jar still sucked though. I think that's why most people hated it really, all dat binks.

The plot also makes no sense

He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved.

I couldn't take away the idea that Phantom Menace was a bad movie. I already knew that.

Well then. Thor 2 is out, wasn't bad. I'm more of a Iron Man fan than a Thor fan.

Also, the second Hobbit movie comes out next month. It looks pretty good.
