Getting to GBA's for "connecting play".  BLEH.

Helping to buy an X360 since its at my brother's house for now and ever.
Buying Zelda TP on Wii because my brother borrowed it away to his now ex-girlfriend.

That's primarily why I won't see it again, they do go on long but I did enjoy the premise and underlying back-story.

Though, especially in my hay-day at Blockbuster, I saw a fair share of what eventually becomes formulaic-indie flicks.  Y'know, the ones about personal growth, some divorced person in it, and a cover done it what looks like child's writing...

Some of them are pretty good, interesting and unconventional.  My main gripe is with the number of films that are "about the journey, not the destination" leaving you with a crap-half-assed ending that puzzles you as you remark, "oh, it's done?".

On the other hand, though not indie, I loved a number of the foreign flicks I saw.  The Son's Room was interesting, Amelie and City of God remain as  some of my favorites, and Motorcycle Diaries made me fall in love with Gail Garcia Benal (even in shitty roles like Babel).

Utada Hikaru is on hiatus.

So THAT'S why the last couple of Kingdom Hearts games don't have any new theme songs.
From what I hear, she quit; she refused to do any more KH themes.

I heard it was on grounds of... she wasn't getting paid (by Disney of all people)

BoA's okay.  I cite Utada because she's the best of both worlds in regards to clarity. 
White Wishes isn't really my favorite too, so ... meh, I like her other work.

I'm curious about Ayumi Hamasaki's Fate Making track... pop isn't really Tales, so I'm interested to see what she'll do.

It seems to be a 2011 equivalent to Heavy Rain.

Which would make me happy.  I'd love another Heavy Rain... just sans some of the minor everyday movements (seriously, control for opening a door??)

Have I told you all about my hate for Rachel Getting Married?



You hated that movie? Why? I thought it was extremely well done. Anne Hathaway was amazing in it.
...
unless your being facetious?


I liked it too - the big scene for me was when Anne and her mum confront each other - made me sad and support Anne despite it all.  I probably would'n't watch it again, but I can say I look back on it well.

THe only thing I hate about cosplay is the awkward sub-genre of fairy outfits.  Never understood the appeal of insect-winged mischievous pixies.

Actually, Yoda, I kind of agree with you. It looks EXACTLY like a movie made just to garner awards. Especially considering the Weinsteins are involved.
Heck, the only reason I want to see it is because of all the praise. The actual premise sounds crazy boring to me.
I'm confused as to what The Expendables has to do with this movie.


I thought so too, my thoughts were the exact thing on everything you've said -  but take my word, it's a wonderful movie.

Mari isn't that beautiful, but I was curious about the film.

And I loved Milennium Actress, despite the bittersweet feeling it leaves you with.
7718  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: February 09, 2011, 01:28:55 PM
Oh I'll see it, eventually. And I'm willing to bet I'll love it.

I think this is all repressed rage from the Expendables not being as good as it should've been.

Best part was the drop kick... and the big gun.  Otherwise it was a miracle that made the cast of such manly men fail.  Not a good miracle either.  You can tell Micky Rourke (ugliest man alive) left off the set of Iron Man 2 to go film Expendables for a day in some creepy ass biker role.

and yes I realize I sound like a moron...
7720  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Recolouring an image... on: February 09, 2011, 11:56:39 AM
Thanks Dice.

I pretty much got it sorted in the end. I did a very messy outline with the scissors tools followed by painting it in the colour I wanted. Then I reopened the original image, took the coloured layer and pasted on. Then I just cleaned up the edges with the eraser. It;s not perfect, but it looks fairly good.

Glad it worked out. =)

I like recolouring my hair, try to do it blond before I realize I'd look like an idiot..

OK, I've now seen 5 of the 10 best picture nominees.
Last night I watched Winter's Bone.
I found it to be a well acted movie that did a great job of making me feel pity and sadness for the plight of all the people involved. Somehow, I don't think that is what it was going for. It was really slow moving, with a few parts that I assume are supposed to be thrilling but we're poorly done and didn't work for me. To top it off, the ending is ridiculous. IMHO, this movie does NOT belong anywhere near the top ten. It's not bad, by any means. It just doesn't do much.

I need to get my ass to the theater and see The Kings Speech and/or True Grit. The problem is that my wife has no interest in either one. I would have to fly solo. Hmmm.


Tell wifey I thought King's Speech was one of the best movies I've seen in the last little while. =)

I'm guessing the localized version of ToGâ will use BoA's English version of White Wishes.
.....brrrrr.....
Sadly, Bonnie Pink was quite the trump card as far as English know-how, and Utada Hikaru is on hiatus.
7723  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: February 08, 2011, 05:28:22 PM
I can't even imagine what or why...

I'm glad you didn't post another gif... I really didn't want to show how deep my star trek gif collection goes just yet.

The epitome of my Star Trek geekiness ends with how much I love Q.


I love Q

I love Data. I love Riker. I love Beverly. I love Troy. I love Picard. I love Geordi. I love O'Brien. I love Ashley Judd when she's in that one ep.

It was nice to see Shooter McGavin from Happy Gilmore playing as an honourable character for once in a few eps.

....why was Picard so far on the list...???? D=

No especially after all this time when you can take away any wow factor you felt back then w/ the graphics the dialog and general writing is terrible.

I fucking love the music though. At times it rivals the nostalgic rpg boner I have for FFIV



RPG boner eh...

He really likes Yuna. Rikku is hotter though.

No way. Lulu for the win.

Mmmmm Seymo..... Tidu...... Aur..... Wak...... hmmm.... none of em...
