All the people saying that trilogy is a killjoy fest from beginning to end and devoid of humor are just a bunch of bullshitters. Those movies do have quite a few humorous scenes sprinkled in, and just because the jokes aren't as blatant, juvenile, and sometimes downright mood-ruining as those in the Marvel movies or some of the latest DCEU entries doesn't mean they're not there.
I don't think your opinion is that unpopular unless your Moviebob (the ultimate contranian), the honest trailer guys, or a blind mcu fanboy/girl. Even people my met who did not like TDK trilogy, the humor was not the problem for them. I get why some people aren't enamored with trilogy (the grounded, realistic take while taking out the more "silly" or fantastical elements); especially with so many superhero movies to contrast them with today, but regardless, the trilogy should not be hated for something that is not its fault. If you're going to blame anyone, it is Hollywood itself at the time.
Evangelion sucks and almost any show that followed aged just as bad.
I love the Big O Season 2. It wasn't just another monster of the week and actually had a neat plot twist. Too bad we won't get a season 3, but I don't need explanation for the series finale. It would just come off as anti-climatic and unfulfilling.
Aya Brea is a more engaging and better written character than either versions of Lara Croft.
Atreus is a better written child character than Ellie. With that said, I don't hate her, but I'm not that invested in her either.
I like Sephiroth, but he lead to too many game developers, manga, and anime creators make a whole bunch of clones or wannabes that got really tiring in the 2000s.
