Dice and Yoda, you two are fantastic. Thanks for making my day(s).

And you should post more...!

PS - Yoda, Ken Watanabe is thrice the man than any woman.

Raising Arizona
I love it.
AND
Quite possibly the best quote from any movie of all time:

I thought "warthog from hell" could have had a potentially really good backstory too.

edit: btw Yoda, you need to watch this to understand Twilight.
everyone needs to see it, actually

OMG I fucken love that movie! haha
I love the Apoca Biker, the poor scene where he blows up the bunny made me both super sad and super... laughy..!

Watched Pride & Prejudice (Keira Knightley, 2007).  Wonderful adaption of the book...and far shorter than the book (thank god; one time with a Jane Austen novel is enough).

I want to see Tron... and Dice's review is like the only positive review I've seen yet.


Did you see it in a 3d theater?




I guess I'm sad that they're all negative... I thought it was a really cool movie... The plot is there, action is there, characters and music.  Especially considering this came out of a Disney Live Action (and the plot doesn't involve a special little boy and his dog) - I was thoroughly impressed! =)
There are faults, but they get glazed over.

I saw it in 3D.  But they were cute with it.  The "real world" scenes are in 2D, the Tron world/ The Grid is in 3D (I guess to add "dimension" to the realism of the virtual world).

OK, so they have some redrawn sprites and redone spell effects to put it on the level of the overpriced PSP FFI and II rereleases. When they could have easily done something else with the time and money. I mean, falling back on nostalgia is kind of a cop out (see: what Sega does when a Sonic game falls through). Plus, this is the FF that's had the most rereleases and remakes of any of them. I enjoyed it...the first four times I bought it. Considering I also have yet to finish After Years on Wii, I'm not sure I'm going to fall for it this time.

And for anyone hating on TAY...it's better than FFX-2. By a MILE.

After FFIV DS... this was the last title I wanted/thought would get a remake...

I have a lot of friends that are teachers, a few in the chicago public schools, and they tell me horror stories about how kids behave these days.




THey all have Justin Bierber bobs too...

DDS has to be one of the most overrated games here.

I don't care how cool the story and design is, battling the same demons 1000 times while trying to walk 10 feet is not fun.

I doubt I'll play DDS2

Exaggeration much? Battling is the fun part. And you're missing the best part if you don't play DDS2.


I loved the story... but seriously.  The grinding you HAD to do sucked serious moose-balls (moose...to canadian?)  And when I say grinding, it wasn't just one or two levels...  I hate struggling with boss fights too - I feel so under prepared..
8603  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: December 18, 2010, 11:42:56 AM
I saw Tron: Legacy.

I loved it.  I'm a sucker for when a movie/game hits an aesthetic design... this one did, flawlessly.  It played a virtual world in an extremely respectable way.  From the music, to the people, to the design (a fella with a scar had it "etched in" a sort of square like design - when a person dies in the Tron world, they blow up into cubes).
Daft Punks OST works with the flick and the story is surprisingly deep.

Unfortunately, a lot of these big budget graphic fests usually spend their money on everything, we miss a LOT of action scenes at the 2/3 mark.  Its slow, but we get an interesting story.  That. and the young Jeff Bridges model, though a respectable attempt at a full 3D CG man amongst real people, looks awkward at best most of the time.  It shows CG won't replace people aaannnytime soon.

Olivia Wilde...aaah, I'd be gay for her, and she was a wonderful character.  I enjoyed Bridges, despite a role reminiscent of "the dude" at times - but I didn't care, it made me happy.  He was a ringer, and wore a fucken killer robe I wanted (it glows like all the other clothing).  THe main fella was cool because he wasn't a complete dick from when his dead abandoned him early in the film.

'Pizzle' is farmer-talk for bull-penises, frequently of the mummefied variety, such as those used to make canes, or dog chew toys. My parents bought the dogs one once. That was creepy. It smelled like barbecue sauce btw. And it's not like I was holding it and sniffing it but rather the smell just permeated throughout the entire house. I think this is somehow responsible for me being insane, a furry, and a vegetarian, all at the same time.

:(

I also think Freud would like to see you.

I prefer knowing they're there and gone during pizzles.

Personally I don't think $25 is that outrageous, especially given that most of the other western-developed indie dating sim games fall around $20. I didn't mind paying for it, since I've been anticipating it for a while.

I agree.  With all due respect, I admire the effort, but for $25 a pop, you'd think they could "buy" a somewhat better artist.

I still haven't given up on platinuming Nier, but it seems to have gone to the back burner (which means it probably won't happen...).  Actually the great majority of the trophies really aren't bad at all, but then there's that damn upgrade-all-weapons-to-max trophy which requires an absurd number of hours farming for rare materials.


All for the reward of some of the most depressing side tales and fables ever....
Here's a favorite....

Quote
This is an old story. A beautiful bird with brightly shining feathers lived silently and carefully in the depths of a forest.


One day, a child abandoned as a burden wandered into the depths of the forest. The bird took pity on the starved and sunken child, and pecked off one of its feathers to give to the child. The child brought it back and pleased his relatives, and he was able to live with his family again.


Hearing the story, people barged into the forest one after another, and told the beautiful bird of how poor, how unfortunate and how unrewarded they were. The beautiful bird took pity on them, and gave them one shining feather after another, and when it gave its last feather, the bird’s beautiful body was reduced to a sorry state. However the ugly bird did not have any regrets.


The ugly bird that lost its feathers was freezing in the cold, and the child from before appeared in front of it. He told it that he was searching a brightly shining and beautiful bird to repay his debts. The ugly bird was overjoyed, and told the child of its desire. “That was me. Please, would you not keep me warm in your chest?” But the child merely took one glance at the ugly bird and called it a liar, killing it with a huge sword and eating the burnt bird, afterwards he continued to search for the beautiful bird
