Copied from my Facebook review:

Wow. Holy shit, wow. I managed to love this movie, despite all the hype. That's saying something. Visually above and beyond anything I've ever seen at the movies. The 3D was not in your face obvious like other crappy 3D movies. I would say it allowed for more immersion, bringing you into Pandora. The story has been told numerous times before, with the same cliche villains, but the way it's told here, in this setting, makes it feel different. The best character in the whole movie was Neytiri(sp?). Zoe did a great job with the voice, and the animation was amazing.
Sam Worthington seems to have a hard time suppressing his Aussie accent. He's really not all that great, so I'm not sure why they couldn't have picked someone without an accent. He must have a hell of an agent, considering all that he's showing up in.
Regardless, the movie is well worth a trip(or trips) to the theater for the visuals alone.
I'll admit to being the choir that this movie is preaching to with it's message. Take care of the earth, and she takes care of you. A few scenes genuinely got to me. You really fall in line with the navi, and want them to kick some sky people ass.
Great movie!

Saw Burton's "Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber of Fleet Street" on Christmas day. I love the songs in this musical. "Epiphany" is one of my favourites!


One of my all-time favorite movies :)
Awesome movie. Bought it for the wife for Christmas.

The HP movies DO improve with each outing. Except for HBP. I agree with Esper on that one. It's not that they left things out. It's WHAT they left out that was the problem.  I'll have to see it again to get a final judgment, but right now I would rank it behind prisoner and Phoenix. Maybe even Goblet.

Finally going to see Avatar tomorrow. I'm surprised at the lack of a thread or conversation on this.

Oh man, you guys won't believe this!
So the mystery has been solved in regards to the two DS games missing. I caught my son trying to throw them out!
Apparently he took the DS to Kindercare/school without telling us, which is strictly forbidden. In so doing he proceeded to LOSE said DS. Either it fell out, or some punk stole out of his book bag. Either way, it's gone. He swiped the games(which we're from Santa, so we wouldn't know about them... Right?) from under the tree in order to keep from having to own up on the missing DS. Crazy shit.
Wow. I didn't think my "good" kid had it in him.
Well, he's in big trouble now, and will be buying a new DS for his mom and dad(in time), is banned from the Wii for a month, and has to do whatever the hell I tell him to do, WHEN I tell him to do it. Plus, Kirby goes back. Scribble we keep.
*sighs*

Lets see...

Dragon Age for PS3(installing as I type this)
a comfy Moon chair for my gaming and movie watching
Pajamas with frickin' footies on them because my feet get so damn cold. Good wife
One of them winter hats with the super warm lining and covers for the ears.
Gamestop, Lands End, Itunes, Marcus Cinema, Borders gift cards
warm denim jacket
Belgian waffle maker
Pressure cooker
Misc. KnickKnacks and goodies

Funny thing: "Santa" brought my son Kirby Super Star Ultra, and the family Scribblenauts. Problem is, when we we're opening presents this morning, these two things were gone. Mysteriously disappeared. I know my son was up before we were, but he is adamant that he had nothing to do with it. I'm convinced he did because there is no other possibility. I don't think someone would break in, only take 2 DS games, cover their tracks perfectly, then leave. I even have pictures I took last night showing one of the games in the pile. I'm pissed because I spent $55 on these games, and now they are gone.  WTF?!

Anyway...
Merry Christmas, everybody!

Not to stoke the fire back up again, but I actually am in agreement with Gen. I don't get to say that too often, so I had to take the opportunity.
I've had a lot of cats in my life. Most of them have been de-clawed. They were also indoor cats that pretty much never went outside except to go to the vet. Seemed like perfectly happy cats to me.
The one or two outdoor cats we had were left intact, for obvious reasons.
I think it is reasonable to want a cat, and also want presentable furniture. This has nothing to do with loving your furniture more than your cat. I certainly don't.
I also think a lot(if not most) of people are simply unaware of what really happens when a cat is de-clawed. I know I am. I never took the time to look it up. It's just what you did when you got a cat.
Kinda like having a baby boy and getting him cut. It's just what you DID. I never considered otherwise.
I imagine if more people educated themselves on things instead of just mindlessly agreeing to such procedures, they wouldn't happen as often.
My current cat, Merlin, is 10 years old. He's pretty awesome, but has had some health problems, and may not be around much longer. We will certainly get a new cat(or cats, as I would like more than one) after he dies. I will seriously consider NOT de-clawing them now that I am better educated on the process. My wife will probably not go for that. We'll see.

I'd really rather not hear about any females having such mishaps. In my delusional world, women are not capable of such things.
Cinnamon and spice, and everything nice, ya know?
; - )


NEWSFLASH: Women pee and poop and fart.

I RUINED YOUR FANTASY. I'm such a ho. :|

We also give birth, menstruate and wax our body hair. Nightmaaaare.


Not cool, ladies. Not cool AT ALL.

aka: *plugs fingers in ears* I'm not listening! La La la!

Its about time we had another bodily function failure thread on this forum (perhaps we were a bit overdue).

However I'm all for gender equality and the next time someone feels the urge to make another one of these threads so I have to ask if it would be too much to ask for if one of you can find a story of a female making God cry next time?

Seriously, haven't we had enough stories of guys trying to weed themselves out of the gene-pool through self-mutilation? Because, I'm pretty sure this site has covered the gamut of every willful emasculation save for getting your junk caught in the kitchen sink's disposal mechanism.

Yeah, it's saddening. She was a gorgeous and charming actress in the films that I saw her in. She'll be in "The Expendables" next year so hopefully it will be good.
Not to disrespect the dead, but "gorgeous and charming"? I think not. I always thought she looked like a coke addict.
I can't even think of anyone I would describe as gorgeous.
Kate Beckinsale? Monica Belluci? Jennifer Connelly(before she starved herself)
I don't know

Valkyria Chronicles - God, I love this game so far. I am now in Chapter 6. I was so pissed when I played the chapter 5 battle and ended up losing. It was own my dumb ass fault, and I found myself daydreaming about how I would play the battle the next time. Changed tactics and completely kicked ass the second time.
I love that you have to really strategize with this game. You can't just march your troops in and destroy everything. The game will hand you your ass.
Good stuff.
I'm pretty sure the wife got me Dragon Age for Christmas, so it's going to be a battle over what to play.

This is sounding pretty damn awesome to me. I have no problems at all with linearity, the omission of towns, or anything else mentioned. I'm all for a cinematic ride of an rpg. If I'm in the mood for non-linearity and towns, I'll play something else. I always approach each FF(and every game I play) as it's own entity. No use comparing it to the others. People will always look for things to complain about. Too bad for them.

Valkyria Chronicles - Only in Chapter 4, but I continue to be impressed. I wasn't expecting this much story, as well as details on the characters and the world itself. As long as it doesn't get too overwhelming, I'll be happy. Good stuff.
2247  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Game Journal XX - Sharpened Pencil Midnight Bathouse on: November 30, 2009, 10:14:26 AM
Valkyria - I haven't been able to play much, but I'm liking quite a bit what I have played. I just got to the main city where you get to put together your army and such. This game is quality all around so far.

Star Trek - This was pretty entertaining, but it felt more like a a bunch of action scenes with a small bit of story, rather than a good story supported by some action scenes. The movie looked fantastic, with some really great sfx. I thought Chris Pine did a great job with Kirk. I did not much like the Leonard Nimoy parts, as it felt interjected just to make the fanboys happy.
The sequel has the potential to be awesome if they pick the right villain(s) and pass on the homages to the past.

Beat Uncharted.
Code:
Chapter 22 was a bitch. Even on easy! Took me numerous deaths to figure how to do it. Then the final confrontation with ...um...that guy. I died a lot
Great game. Took me awhile to get used to the shootouts(No lock on! I'm a pansy!),but overall I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to play the sequel, although I WILL wait, as I would rather play some other games in between.
Valkyria is up next.

Uncharted - Chapter 19: WTF?!
Code:
So now all of a sudden we have...monsters? wtf are these things? Damn fast, and can kill me easily if I let them get too close. This game has suddenly become all survival-horror-like. I got my ass kicked numerous times before figuring out how these things act. Made it to the generator room with the two "switches" or whatever in the side rooms. I thought I had the third wave cleared when more of them showed up. I went to turn around, ran right into a friggin wall, and one of them got me. Game started me back at the first wave, and I said "fuck it" for the night.

Code:
You don't need to kill them though, all you got to do is run and shoot (without aiming), that's why the only guns there are the machine guns :P


Code:
Yeah, I checked gamefaqs after realizing that the things weren't going to stop coming back. Considering the rest of the game had areas with a set amount of enemies, you can understand why I didn't catch on right away.
In chapter 21 now, btw.
