Haha - I forgot about Evolution.  That is a good show!

Watched part of The Fountain again this morning because it happened to be on while I was getting ready for work.  Crazy movie.  I think it helped that I'd seen it before, though.

Stephen King - The Eyes of the Dragon.  This is around the 6th or 7th time I've read this. King really should have done more fantasy/fairy tale stuff.

I agree!  I keep a few extra copies, and when someone says "Ooh, I'd never read Stephen King.  He's all scary demons and stuff," I give them one and say "Here, read this.  I promise it won't be anything like what you're expecting."  (Seriously - my wife picks them up at a local thrift store for 75 cents.)

OK - A Scanner Darkly's over, and it was cool, but bizarre.  Glad I saw it, but it demanded all of my attention, which rarely happens with movies.

What?  Keanu's awesome in that! ;)

Watching a movie with him right now - A Scanner Darkly.

Very nice, MGF.

And Moonlight, yeah - for whatever reason, we've never stopped posting in this thread, so you're in the right place. :)

Oh my gosh - I have totally wondered how that book would seem to anyone who'd read the original, and how they managed to put in the zombies and still have it somehow go with the original stuff.  If you feel like giving more info, I for one would be interested.


Oh, and to give myself a break from re-reading the Wheel of Time series, I've been re-reading the Alvin Maker series by Orson Scott Card.  He's a grade A nutcase these days, but that's still a great series (and one that started a long time ago), and if he ever writes the last book, I'll totally read it. :)

Eric, I'm gonna have to go with Gamespot on this one.  It got their "punishing difficulty" award, described as: "You might be good enough at games to make your way through this one, but when you visit some message board and start bragging about how it was 'no big deal,' you're just making a fool of yourself."

I'm too lazy to look through them all, but I'd be surprised if there was a single review that didn't say "this game is really hard."

Nice job, man!  27 pounds in four months.  You're like the Biggest Loser of RPGFan... er... well, you know what I mean. :)

You know, I read the first Dune book, thought it was pretty decent, but couldn't get through even one more.  And yet from what I see, tons of other people think that whole series is fried gold.

NP, Deg - I was just about to be Captain Downer myself. :)

Watched "9" the other night, was very disappointed.  And I'm a Tim Burton fan with low standards in movies!  I just sat there at the end thinking "What was the point?"

I mean...

Code:
at the beginning, there were 8 beings alive in the world, plus an evil cat machine.  At the end, due to 9's inability to think before acting, there are now 4 beings alive in the world plus any machines that didn't die when the factory exploded (although the implication is that they all died there except for big mama, who got killed later).  And yet he's somehow the hero?

Are you one of these guys? ;)

Just don't watch the recent three-parter of Red Dwarf that was made to officially finish the show. It was fucking terrible.
Was it just not funny, or does it go the opposite way and sacrifice the characters for cheap gags? Those are the two things that typically make a good comedy series go downhill. I've heard a couple bad things about Back to Earth, and there's a chance I might watch it depending on how the show itself ends, since I always prefer to have some sort of conclusion.

I'd say just not so funny.  (Although I did get a chuckle or two out of it...)
1948  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: September 14, 2009, 11:59:37 PM
Eh - I watched it last week and thought it was OK.  Easily at least as good as season 8. If you added up everything good from that season, you'd still only have enough material to fill up one episode.

But don't let that dissuade you, Hathen.  Plenty of great stuff before season 8.

Red Dwarf is awesome.  My cat's named Frankenstein because of that show. :)

Sorry to continue the threadjack, but... the last time I got glasses, I put in the extra cash for the ones that go dark in the sun.  I'm a little disappointed in the fact that they don't go quite as dark as I'd like (midnight black), and that they don't go dark in the car, but other than that, they're great.  Makes it easier to do things like go to Disneyland, where you're going in and out all the time.  Also, I don't have to worry about losing my prescription sunglasses, which is a problem for me. :)
