  1. Aria, Strider's making me all nostalgic with this series. I loved loved Aria The Animation and Aria The Natural. Watched them both as they were coming out. Laced with personal, touching and real like scenario feelings, it won me over. I regret not checking out other seasons, just looked it up and there's a season 3 and an OVA. Man ... if you're a fan of Haibane Renmei or Sketchbook, check it out. It's like Ah! My Goddess without the supernatural but in terms of what it can do to you emotionally as you watch it.
  2. Cool beans and good luck.
  3. The more I see of this movie the less attractive it looks compared to the first teaser that came out. By 'far better than' Sledge, do you also mean X-Men First Class?
  4. The same reason I'm reading Naruto, to see it to it's end. Jokes aside, I can watch a show and not like it at the same time. It's like going back to get the same bad haircut knowing you're going to get a bad haircut every time. It's not a bad show, it's just got pacing issues ... something I felt the same with The Walking Dead too which I spoke of. Vikings is a good show, I wish they kept a keen focus on the meat of it. It's just disappointing.
  5. Boy oh boy, I absolutely loved all those precious slow-motion moments throughout the episode. What plot development! So it gives me a sense of how the last 3 episodes are going to pan out. Let's stretch this or milk it so we can get to THIS or THAT exact scene to be the final ending *insert more slow motion scenes or scenes of the water around the Islands or some cool shots of fog cos YEAH that's awesome*
  6. Hey, let's go golfing now that you have clubs! Ok, let's go. Do you know how to golf? Yeah yeah ... plenty of times. Ok, here you go ... Alright, watch this shot ... aahhmmm ... hmm hmm ... *takes a swing and breaks the club* What'd you do that for?!!! What a poor stroke?!?! WTF MAN. Oh yeah, I've golfed plenty of times on the PS3 and PS2 and even on my Blackberry, had a top score on that one. =_='
  7. But that's good to know for scale, etc.
  8. And you were OK with the show's ending and the cop-out let's-kill-but-conveniently-revive-Nolan-so-the-kill-in-the-first-place-didn't-matter-at-all thing?! And that's barring other really dumb plot holes and bad writing! I'll watch the last episode and give you a recap p
  9. The original FMA series has a much better soundtrack in comparison. But the plot stays true to the manga in the latter series, so it's my pick too between the two of them.
  10. Is this the same show with a really really bad season finale or am I getting confused with another series?
  11. HUGE.
  12. Few videos are up on YT ... like this one
  13. 2 episodes in season 4 at the moment, I didn't see the end of last night's episode coming. Wanna discuss? Anyone? Sledge, I know you were skeptical about checking the series out but you like Vikings and it's hard for me to imagine you NOT liking this. There's nudity here and there but it's not at the forefront of what the story's about. It's incredibly political, decently gruesome and rich in cinematography or production values. Vikings is a second younger brother to Game of Thrones in that context. DX, on a scale of 1 to 10 how would you rate the series up to this point?
  14. The Raid was straight up good and Dredd's plot architecture definitely reminds everyone of The Raid, if they'd seen it. The Raid 2 is damn good, watched it 2 weeks ago when it came out in theaters. It ain't for the skirmish. The Raid 2 is longer, has more of a plot in comparison and the fight scenes are just as impressive as the first movie, however the first one is grittier and I'd say still a bit better if you consider the choice of weapons used.

  16. Definitely yeah ... it's going to be hard to give the kind of time you have the luxury of having to develop scenarios/ characters that you'd get from a TV series as opposed to a movie. Look at the current Star Trek reboot comparing it to the original series. The other side of this is that just like the TV series was a re-imagining of the old original series, this movie could very well be that or who knows, maybe it takes off after Blood & Chrome? Blood & Chrome by itself is a pretty good series if you ask me. So definitely it'll be tricky but who knows? I'm a bit optimistic because I'm a fan and I owe it to the series by being optimistic and going open minded. The people involved so far are not nobody's, so that's another plus.
  17. Or a random deer/ big animal in the vicinity that was killed.
  18. I'd want to see Bay make a Bakugan Battle Brawlers or Star Trek or Star Wars movie, maybe Star Wars IX because that's all the more important being the 3rd film of a trilogy.
  19. Temple Run 2 > Temple Run. There is an option where you can buy some gems for this and that but you don't have to in order to increase your levels. You can repeat a few conquests to gain more cards and use those cards to upgrade your current card levels. That's what I'm doing right now cos for instance, my deck's health is at 81K and attack is at 30K but the boss's health is at 90K and attack is at 46K. So I either get my stats to match that or go beyond. The kind of cards these bosses have are challenging, so picking the right deck or order is important. You can be of a lower stat but if you place the deck smart you can still win. I made the mistake of starting with a weak set of players and I've been upgrading the stats of those weak players since.
  20. Good final episode but the end felt pretty lame. The way I saw it was this really good build up with intense moments and a hearty flashback sequence. Then you had tense moments of the four being led on and running from gun shots, surrounded and told to go in that cargo car thingie. Up until this point it was good. Then, it all went limp. As far as I'm concerned you can't really tell they're cannibals UNLESS you've read spoilers. You cannot assume chops on a grill look like human chops because we don't know what human chops look like, do we? For that split of a second, there's no way of telling for sure is what I mean. Seeing that pile of bodies - again, doesn't hint at cannibalism. To me they seemed like any hostile party of people. Maybe they leave their dead on display like that as a reminder to new people? But I don't see a straight connection to cannibalism. The only way I knew was after reading about it on here. Still feel like they slowed the pace down a lot the first few episodes like those amazing moments of chocolate pudding eating on the roof. Wish there was just about another episode's worth of time left. Good run of final episodes. Rick - Where's Beth? Daryle - Gone. Rick *no reaction* ... you're a brother to me! It was 3 AM last night and I scratched my head at that.
  21. Currently playing and enjoying Heroes Camelot. It's sort of like a card game I think ... not sure cos I don't know game genres in general. I just hit a roadblock and will have to figure out a way to upgrade my stuff to battle some boss to go further. I see people on the game with so many interesting cards, it looks like they may have 'bought' them. I ain't spending a dime!
  22. I only said I wasn't PG-13 RoboCop on the contrary was not dismal, as a lot hoped and predicted it would be. Overall, a decent effort. Not as good as the new Dredd and not as bad as it was made out to be. Agreed and anyone else being Harrison Ford I'd say is a bad idea. That series is done and should be put to rest. The Amazing Spiderman was a decent outing, not absolutely fantastic but decent enough to make me curious to watch the shitty CG this-looks-like-a-video-game movie trailer. On the first outing, the action was fun and believable. The cast was a problem for me. The new one thankfully is directed by the same director, so who knows, hopefully it won't suck as much as it looks it would (remember Thor 2?). Either way, it's a franchise that was rebooted too soon, much like Transformers 4 or -1 or whatever it is that it's trying to be. Definitely, Godzilla 2014 lacks Roland's magic wand ... for the best. I know what you mean though, about earlier sequels. Too early to tell and the trailer looks serious business.
  23. Not surprised or shocked by this piece of shit trailer. This sort of thing appeals to today's generation? So be it. It's the same thing I've said before about bad movies making tons of money versus movies with substance these days. Expect sequels to this, like other pathetic movies - Transformers or Resident Evil or The Hangover or Twilight or Taken or 300, etc.
  24. Cool beans Strider, I'll check it out mid-April when I get some free time on my hands.
  25. This latest trend of 'Let's kill a character we find annoying or don't like' is pretty stupid imho. If it weren't for characters like that, why would you watch the show? Would you be interested in a story without a bad guy that gets you to feel some emotion towards the character or help you root for the good guy? Lets kill Rollo because he betrayed his brother and this and that, what an ass! Lets kill Ragnar because he can't be loyal to his faithful loving woman and is being annoying with his playboy ways. Imagine how lame Game Of Thrones would be without the Lannisters, Tywin, Tyrion or Joffrey or Jaime. How about we watch a TV show about a happy farming family with no water drought or adversity and see how interesting that is haha! Jokes aside, the cinematography's still great which is a pleasure to watch. I'm not vested in the story as much as before because of the historical inaccuracies and the predictability of the story. It's not in my 'wow' TV show list, rather 'casual watch' list.
