How are Hideaki Anno's live-action movies? I think Eva is amazing, Kare Kano was great. Didn't really like Nadia and Gunbuster as much, I didn't think they were as interesting visually. Re: Cutie Honey was a bit of mindless fun, good to watch with friends and beer.
So how are Love&Pop, Shiki-Jitsu and his live-action cutie honey?
Anno is bad with real people proportionally on how he's good with animation.
his live movies are absolutely painful, in fact his first live project in a decade and half after the last one is fucking Gojira
Love and Pop had a great directing with a lot of good ideas and beautiful and well-thought moment where he's superpozing two different shots with classical music, always carefully selected
Cutie Honey is some over-the-top insufferable power rangers-like movie but with two extremely interesting moments from a creative viewpoint and I believe that he almost choosed to do this movie only to create those moments, so it's still a must-see
I don't know about shiki-jitsu
