I just saw Super 8.

Good movie.  A mix of Goonies and whatever Alien flick, E.T. or whatever alien movie where he kills things.
I was pretty unsatisfied and unfulfilled by the end though.  The build up is great, but really, really winds down super fast and ends abruptly.  I don't understand the alien either (it was mean, it was nice, it was what exactly??) and really could have used more plot to explain itself.  Some characters, the Dad especially, gets built up a heck of a lot as a sort-of sub-plot character only to really fall short of all his efforts.

My opinion is mixed.  One cute thing is during the credits, where we see this "big home movie" that was being filmed throughout most of the flick.  While I loved the era, I loved what was done, the plot suffers a lack of fine-tuning.  Funny, something JJ Abrams did just as poorly with Lost.

Further embarrassing, tragic misconceptions:

When I was 3 or 4 I remember getting a boner and running out to show my parents, thinking I had some amazing ability that only I had.


Now THAT is classic!

I, actually, lol'd. x)
omg, that sounds so... cute?  Cute and funny I think haha

I actually kinda wanna see it; seen the rest of em, can't really say "no" and a girlfriend wants me to go when I fake-reacted excited as a twi-tard and she really was.... hah.

Yep, those are the ones. North America is the only place that calls them ladybugs (and some parts of Canada, apparently) :P

Don't get all high and mighty about it neither, because they are neither bugs nor birds :P

I was wondering wth a Ladybird is... sounded like some sort of Disney-bird...

Like this bird to the right, with the thicker eyelashes.

Haha I kinda call that a "kid" age still.  When I see highschoolers, the younger ones totally speak "kid" to me for some reason. 
But anyways.

I'm on the boat for driving and directions: I had no idea how adults *at all* knew how to get around places, and I had noo idea what "at the corner of Auburn and Sheridan" meant, or how you memorize locations like that.

My wife says that the Wilson brothers' fame seems to be indirectly proportional to their attractiveness. Owen looks worst, is most famous. Andrew looks best, is barely famous.

Ingenious, actually.

The Darjeeling Limited is the only one I have yet to see. I should bump it up on my queue. Thanks for the reminder.

Not my favorite, but still good.

One thing I like about these movies besides major content: Usually good soundtracks. :D

Vanillaware loves the sort of outlandish logos.  Anyways.  I will have and I will want this game for these reasons:

I'm not too crazy about the stupidly-portioned characters though.  Cute with giant-muscle-bearded-man, but the sorceress' tits are just embarassing haha

I keep watching this trainwreck and laughing my ass off.

Remember the last JRPG that stuffed monster hunting into a poorly made game? It was called Tales of Symphonia 2.

I feel so ignored... or did you get the idea from me?? : /  haha
6761  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: June 08, 2011, 03:48:48 AM
Trailer was pretty good... but I can see the story being stupid though.  I kinda hate having Serrah take the lead, she looks...so weird.  Seems the game forgot about her "better half", Snow, so far haha

Graphics look great (sans Serrah), and I'd like to see more of the old cast too.

But i thought Serah was hot, and i dig her new outfit -_-

I'd like her more... if she looked more real.  Her design creeps me out.  Her hair, while I dig the side ponytail, is accompanied by some sort of under-mullet, and the accursed Japanese-long-bangs that seems to only hit the centre of the face.

...hm.  A sequel with monster raising.  Hey y'all, remember Tales of Symphonia 2 and how much it rocked?  Neither do I.

Best thing I told a kid to give him his own misconception: it *is* possible to double-jump (seeing him try was amazing).

One of the most hyped E3s ever... and that's it.

The wii-u did nothing for me. For nintendo new hardware is just an excuse to recycle the same 3 IPs over and over again. At least this time there's 3rd party support but there doesn't seem to be a visual upgrade over the PS360 versions and the controller functions will be shoehorned in like they are with kinect and move.
MS conference was downright pathetic.
Sony only showed stuff we already knew about. I think the vita is a great piece of hardware and the price was a nice surprise but I'm not a handheld person.

This pretty much. Everything felt like it was reveal; no real surprises here.

- Easy one: parents bank account had an infinite balance.
- Parents went to "work", not so much a specific job and a role, just "work".
- Figure Skaters weren't waving at the camera, they were waving at *me*! :D
- Gannon, from Adventure of Link, was after me (remember that game over screen? Still gives me the chills)
- No real sense of months. I don't know, I just remember going to school, then not for a while.

Fuck it. I'm not dealing with another gimmick system.  A tablet? What for? Probably to roll pizza dough in a Pizza Mama title. I'll pass **unless** the system seriously gets it's head out of it's butt. The Wii lineup as of now seriously makes it look like Barney and  Fischer Price co-sponsors the thing.  I reflect on the Wii now as a waste of money. : /
