Just chiming in to say: yes, this game is awesome, and deserves to be bought by the boat load.

Haven't run into any bugs or balance issues yet (day 3). The story is really clever. The whole time mechanic is very well done. The characters aren't as mature as I'd like, but as the game progresses they become less grating. Really enjoying the combat, demon recruiting, and fusion as well. It's pretty fun experimenting with new combinations.

I'm really surprised Devil Survivor isn't getting more attention here. It's my favorite RPG in I-don't-even-know-how-long. Never played a Megami Tensei game before. Can I expect this sort of quality from the rest of the series?

Man my movie tastes much be opposite of yours everluck because I didn't really like either of those movies. Anyway...

I *finally* watched the original Saw. It starts off with an interesting premise, but the weight of it seems too much for the film to hold. Horrible acting (some of the worst I have ever seen), weird camera flourishes, and disturbing images will likely turn away any but those with a penchant for this stuff. I actually kind of wish I didn't wait this long to watch this, because there are 5 movies now, so I kind of knew the twist without actually realizing it, and it was a bummer. I'll give the film credit for it though. If this really is the pinnacle of the series like everyone has said, maybe I should stop now because this was only slightly above average.

How the crap did this spawn 4 more sequels (and more still coming?!). People who keep paying for this are nuts.
Went from psychological thriller to straight up torture porn. Isn't worth seeing more than the first, really.

I thought Cloverfield was the greatest birthday present I've ever had; seeing it day one on a hi def projector in theatre was incredible. It's been a while and I still have zero interest in owning it on DVD. It wouldn't be nearly the same experience. I considered it an event more than a simple film, but I thought it did what it set out to do incredibly well.

I went into Watchmen expecting very little and was pleasantly surprised. The intro credit montage was possibly one of the best film sequences I've ever seen. The whole movie delivered, I thought, with some strange issues regarding plot details (Ozymandius' lynx for one; without even a line regarding it, the whole relationship between he and his pet seemed strained and forced at best). Didn't really like the fight scenes, either; they seemed almost parody, with the exaggerated meat slaps and bone breaking sounds. Every one of the heroes had super strength, but I could excuse that: it was a Zack Snyder film, so I expected it.

Watchmen.

Holy fuck it was so much better than Zack Snyder's other films. Had some problems, but I loved it.

Wasn't expecting that.

I finally saw Cloverfield. It was phenomenal.

I fixed that for you. Watch out for typos.

The Truman Show.

Great as always.

I've been told I have a strong thumb, yes. Might go so far as to call it my defining feature.

I'm in the same boat as you guys. My avatar is me from about four years ago.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Great film. Very glad I saw it.

Yep. I knew it going in, and it totally delivered: The Day the Earth Stood Still is total and complete garbage.

Sunshine.

Love this movie.

Not sure if I want to see Quantum after hearing impressions about it. Casino Royale was so good, I thought, because it was a legitimately solid film with a great main character. The pathos there was a first for the entire Bond series. QoS seems like it went back to the series' roots, which had no character development to begin with.

Shame.

2008 hasn't been the best film year in my opinion.
I thought 2007 blew this year away, but I think the past three years have been pretty good overall. From what I've seen, there's been a lot of progress in cinema recently.
