  1. You could use this space for movies or tv shows or alike. I was in the middle of A Late Quartet and sprung on the forum.
  2. Cancelled. http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/04/29/almost-human-canceled-fox/
  3. Not clicking that. Off topic - my fascination with clicking on movie trailers to find out a 2 and a half minute plot summary with spoilers is at the lowest. If I'm interested in a movie, I'll watch it, regardless of the trailer. If it sucks, it sucks. Depends on the subject matter or who's involved in the project.
  4. The Dark Knight Rises is the weakest movie in that trilogy. The Last Airbender pissed me off. I have not watched Wild Wild West, I don't have the time for rubbish hahaha!
  5. ^ Yep, it's pretty much how the manga ends. That's a bad movie. 300: Rise Of An Empire - The first 10 mins I think has a 1 minute fight sequence stretched out in slow motion to give it 10 mins of reel time. Apart from Eva Green's presence in the film, this was a waste of time which doesn't better the already bad effort - 300. Blue Ruin - under-rated revenge thriller, pretty good. Recommended. Go in blind with this one like any movie recommended.
  6. Not sure how I feel about Athelstan and his return to Ragnar's village. In a way, it contradicts his recently acquired faith and if you look at the amount of time they spent in showing him in doubt before he went back to Christianity, it took just a friendly gesture from Ragnar to bring him back to the fold? Floki trying to be a bad guy and not teaming with Ragnar was a good spin to his character, seeing him possibly return to the fold is again a bit disappointing. With Rollo you could see why he did it initially, the intent was clear and sacrifice was too. In the end, it still makes for good TV, not sure how historically accurate these switching of sides was back in the day, but I could see it happening.
  7. We Are What We Are - stunning end, bit of a slow-burn but a good watch overall. Here Comes To Devil - sex scenes were pointless, apart from 1-2 horrific scenes involving the kids, the movie was predictable and meh. This may be on Netflix now. Have you read the manga? It's how the manga ended. If you didn't like the manga, you shouldn't have watched a 90+% accurate adaptation haha!
  8. The Hellsing TV series changes in plot after episode 6 or 7. Hellsing Ultimate stays committed to the manga with no filler. Think - FMA.
  9. Not gonna say much because I know it wouldn't matter and nobody cares. So anyway - Enemy - Highly recommended if you like mind bending movies. The Fourth Man - good old school flick, same as above but easier to grasp. Joe - Nicholas Cage's best movie in over 10 years, damn good. Noah - weakest Aronofsky but better than the recent crop of movies out there and has some menacing, dark moments. Good soundtrack. Recommended. Grand Piano - decent premise for this thriller, good execution and a decent end. The Raid 2 - more plot, bigger production, 1 is better but this is the best action movie to be released in US theaters in 2014 so far. I haven't watched Captain America but I don't have to in order to make that statement. Ride Along - Kevin Hart, Ice Cube. 1 laugh and the rest is a clunker, colossal waste of time.
  10. There's a movie out there, I'm gonna pick it up soon and watch it. Any of you checked it out yet? A trailer popped up when I Google searched this but I ain't checking it out.
  11. Shift + Delete. Okiedokie!
  12. So everyone discovers old anime or new anime all the time but what do you consider is your favorite anime series or top 2 or top 3, not beyond that because then it becomes a hey check out these 10/ 15 series that are good. No, the purpose of this thread is to narrow it down to get to the top. This could be a movie or a series or an OVA. I admit I haven't kept current with many anime series that came out in the past 3 years but I check out the best rated ones from time to time and skip the rest. So far, none have impressed me to a scale where I can safely say I'd be a life long fan. The one series that comes to mind that I still watch as it comes out (or try to) is One Piece. Sledge and I have discussed this at length and I can't get myself to like the current animation style when it comes to fight sequence but it's varied from arc to arc. Thriller Bark marked the switch to a bigger resolution and better art style, supposedly, but I preferred everything from character design to art direction, music theme and more importantly - pacing - from Post Enies Lobby arc and before. The story outweighs the design and it's executed well in the anime vs the manga. There's a lot of detail I can go through but I don't want an overkill first post, so I'll end it now. Akira would be my choice of top tier anime movie, for many many reasons. I'm a fan of Ghibli or other classics by non-Ghibli studios but if I had to choose 1, I'd pick Akira. Want to know why? Hit reply and find out That's two of my choices, I would have to think of my last/ final choice or leave it at this.
  13. I stopped watching it around the time Coulson found out about himself. I heard last night actually about how it's gotten better since and how it ties into Marvel's current movies.
  14. 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.
  15. Cool beans and good luck.
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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*
  19. 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. =_='
  20. But that's good to know for scale, etc.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. Is this the same show with a really really bad season finale or am I getting confused with another series?
  24. HUGE.
  25. Few videos are up on YT ... like this one
