  1. I thought it was decent. Didn't feel that 'WOW' factor seeing it. Highlight of the movie for me was seeing Rama and Mad Dog for a quick second. The rest was 'ehh'. The sloppy lets not make anything that's actually original writing actually makes me respect Lucas in a very very small way about how he tried to show (and failed) something original in the prequel trilogy - all the political stuff, etc. - it would've been easy for him to slap another similar looking trilogy, story-pattern-wise.
  2. The recruiter might die or Glenn aka the obvious choice. Worst season so far. Reedus, THE tracker of the show, gets himself captured not once but twice this season. Fun. Shit writing.
  3. Apart from hearing the signature tune here n there, this looked a shade better than a TV movie. I'll go see it but not thrilled and honestly don't care about side stories because at this point this's all part of the grand scheme to milk to franchise and more = not always the best option. Felicity looks so wooden with those long pause shots.
  4. So with the old sub-forum scrapped, we can probably discuss everything One Piece related - anime, manga - in here I suppose? NOTE: Any noobs checking the topic must know this is going to be full of spoilerific goodness. The new episode was fantastic! First, Flamingo is on his way and then who was that mystery character towards the end of the last episode? With Law warning Luffy to move on, I think Flamingo will be there in no time. He may capture or rescue those 2 from his crew but he's pretty ruthless so he may just use them as sacrifices in the end or not care for them. Predictions, thoughts, whatcha think?
  5. The CG looks dismal but they'll fix it in post production. There's nothing in the story that can save this movie unfortunately.
  6. This looks like another piece of turd, much like the 3rd movie. Listen to that DUMB dialog. The only thing that could save the trailer was if Chris Pratt rode a raptor instead of a bike.
  7. The movie's ending sucked imho. The reason they beat the bad guy in the end was one of the dumbest scenes I've watched in a big movie in recent times.
  8. Tried a little hard as in? From the opening scene till the final scene, it lays things out so the viewer has no questions or doubts about what's happening or what happened unlike say an Inception. Anyway, if you're going to watch this at home Sledge, it won't be the same. Godzilla felt way different when I saw it in the theater versus at home. And I'm not talking about gimmicky 3D. This one has a lot of IMAX in it, so much that they didn't have room on the IMAX reel to fit promos of other movies, etc. 90+% of all space scenes were shot in IMAX. It's beautiful and the sound is loud and raw.
  9. Big Hero 6 was fun, surprisingly watchable with emotion.
  10. I bought nothing. The more I buy, the more I don't want to own anything. Plus these deals are programmed to get you to buy things you wouldn't necessarily buy or need and you'd get it just for the heck of it because of a low price. Screw that! But yes, I need a PS3 controller and I'll buy it tomorrow when it isn't on sale. Take that Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
  11. What's with that medieval looking light saber? Looks pretty stupid functionally if you ask me. The teaser was what it was, a tease. I'd prefer not to seeing any more of it and watch the rest of the train wreck at the movies. Vader has 1 beam. Maul had 2 beams. This sith fella has 3 beams. Nice progression with every trilogy. Also, screw that dumb looking light saber, this would've ruled instead -
  12. Can't say she didn't deserve it after what she pulled. Bad move Beth. Can't say this season was better than the last or the one before that.
  13. The story is just bad. Pretty BAD.
  14. Gotta warn you about Claymore being a bit of a clunker when you get to the middle of the series, felt like the mangeka had too many ideas and couldn't pick where to take it. DX, that is very sweet of you, thanks for your kind words. Unfortunately I used to watch a lot more a few years ago than I do today because of the nature of today's anime and it's primarily the reason why Attack On Titan grew in popularity. The past few years anime has had a lot of loli, cute, lets eat cake, upskirt, jiggling boobs, wind up your skirt kinda cutesy high school drama, comedy, slice of life, harem kinda stuff. Here comes Attack On Titan about killing and killing someone's mother or eating them and it came as a shock to the cake eating otaku who was expecting to see some speed lines of women in tight costumes or short skirts fighting demons/ monsters. Unfortunately, the series they all gripped on is not good where it truly matters - the meat of the story/ characters. It's been a long time since I watched anything that grabbed me as much. From on-going manga I truly value or treasure, I'd say there's Berserk, Vagabond, Real, One Piece - amazing story telling combined with talent in the craft of the art of drawing manga and more importantly, depth in characters, them evolving or devolving and the story overall. Each of those are so different from one another and invoke different emotions as I read them. There are a lot of other completed series that I could recommend you read - Akira, 20th Century Boys, Lone Wolf & Cub, NANA, Barefoot Gen, Slam Dunk, Monster, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, GTO and a couple more. If it's anime you're asking about, there are a few I like in no order, including series or movies at the top of my head - Akira, Crest Of Stars, Banner Of Stars 2, Kurogane Communication, Planetes, Harlock Endless Odyssey, Robotech, Kurau, Fruits Basket, Twin Spica, Gankutsuou, Girl Who Lept Through Time, Angel's Egg, Hunter x Hunter, Kino's Journey, Boogiepop Phantom, Last Exile, Tokyo Magnitude, Macross Frontier/ Plus, Nadia, Saikano, Ouran, GTO, Perfect Blue, Millenium Actress, Blue Seed, Haibane Renmei, Place Promised In Our Early Days, Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Rahxephon, Escaflowne, His & Her Circumstances, GITS Stand Alone, Ippo original series, Voices of a Distant Star, Patlabor OVA, Gundam - Char and MS 8th, Paranoia Agent, Legend Of The Galactic Heroes, Battle Programmer Shirase ... there are a few more but I'll have to go through my stuff to dig and tell.
  15. Not interested. The movie was good, yet over-rated.
  16. Yep, in the theater because a pal visiting me from Canada wanted to check it out. He picked this over Expendables 3, much to my anguish but a guest is a guest and I'd honor their pick. The movie sucked as much balls as the new Transformers and reminded me of the last really bad movie I had to see in a theater with another friend, about 2 cops, supposed to be funny, with that short guy in it, frakkin miserable hours of my life.
  17. Experiencing the 2nd movie in the theater and seeing people react to stupid dumb emotion I got a scratch so please GASP loud scenes was laughable. The level of acceptable standards for entertainment is amazing these days. We're getting closer to Idiocracy ; ) and I cannot wait!
  18. Never found Flash THAT interesting to check this show out.
  19. Will watch it tonight with a few friends. I suspect by the end of this season, the girl you guys love will die. If she doesn't, I hope Rick does. EDIT So I watched it. It's funny how they said THEN and NOW as if we won't get what's happening and I didn't like the reveal at the end, in the sense that I'm glad we'll see more of that character, it was just odd to have them unmask the guy, it would've been cooler if they showed a guy walk up to the sign and follow those signs where the audience's wondering "Who's that guy?!! Is he good or some scalp the group forgot to kill off?!" The first episode felt like one of those season finale's and I mean that in a good way, glad the story picked up and we weren't stuck at Terminus for the full season. Zombies look like many versions of an Iron Maiden cover. That fire cracker scene was not realistic for a show that wants to be closer to showing realistic stuff. I also for the first time sat through an episode of Talking Dead, painful. Reassured my belief in why I think Conan isn't funny.
  20. Real men don't need spell check or punctuation pointers. Spell check to me is like a March 5 or 7 or 10 whatever number of blades they're at these days. Been using this phone for a few months. Not bad. Hasn't lagged or required me to turn off and turn back on. I do turn it off every day, twice a day when I'm traveling in the subway and the one change I've made is not put it to charge in the night. I wake up, put the phone to charge, take it off the charge by the time I leave for work and that way the phone starts it's day at an 80ish percent, don't let it keep charging like I used to with my other phones. Worried I wouldn't be able to simply replace a battery pack.
  21. The manga for this, aka the source material, is pretty awesome and I'm being sarcastic. Bad writing, bad drawing and the deeper you go into the story the more you find yourself thinking about the depth this series could potentially have which is at a shallow 1 cm off the surface level. Okay, a cm and a half and that's being generous at a spot that's a feet in depth. No pretty look directing from the anime, no speed lines, no soundtrack, no pretty sparkles, etc. that one could be spoiled from expecting fresh off the anime. Bare bones dull, this is. But, give it a shot.
  22. Now, that's a good thing
  23. ^ now way man. And this movie is as worthless as Bay's other movies in the franchise.
  24. Leaked a month before it's release. Not better than Expendables 2. Still not the Contra movie I want Sly-Arnie to have made.
