Nope - always saw people selling stuff, but never bought anything myself.  Of course, I was never involved in online play, and I'm pretty sure that made a difference in how I played.

Saw "Much Ado About Nothing" (with Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson) and "Little Princess" on Friday night. The former was good, melodramatic Shakespeare fun. The latter was okay. Something I might've liked when I was much, much younger.

I'm a big fan of that movie of Much Ado.  Many great jobs in that show.  Branagh, Thompson, Denzel, Keaton, blah, blah, blah.  We'll just pretend Keanu wasn't in it, though, right?

Reading a YA book called "How to Disappear Completely and Never be Found."  Not too far in, but I really like some of the writing.  My wife recommended it to me, and I think she was right to do so.

That reminds me - I've rewatched Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead over the last week.  I <3 those movies. :)

Esper - just noticed your sig.  It's not a movie, but I've been watching a bunch of Fraggle Rock on DVD lately. :)  Also watching Torchwood, which is really heavy stuff for me.  As I write this, I'm watching an episode of the old Wonder Woman TV show.  Gotta love TV series on DVD.

You liked Mirrormask, eh?  I did too, although mostly for the visuals.  One of the only movies I've actually watched on DVD.  It's too visual not to.  You can't just listen to it - you'll miss out on a lot.

Caught Push at the theater the other night.  With my low standards, it was a pretty fun show.  Some people felt like there were pretty big plot holes, but I didn't think it was that bad, and I didn't care anyway.  The only thing I really didn't like was that I felt they tried to make Dakota Fanning sexy, and that's just wrong.  She's 14, for heck's sake.  I did like her character, just not how they dressed her.

(Geez, I must be old.)

Check it out - not me, but it's my new "collection" of amigurumi who sit on my desk.  Dr. Zoidberg, a "corporate zombie" (that's blood on his face - it's redder than my phone camera makes it look), and Cthulhu.  You can't see them well, but he has awesome little wings on his back.

Coraline in 3D.  Saw a commercial saying it was the last weekend for it (in 3D) and it sucked me in.  Thought it was pretty decent - definitely Gaiman-esque.  There were a bunch of visual elements that reminded me of Mirrormask.
2005  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: February 16, 2009, 05:22:55 PM
I went and saw Coraline today. I was disappointed. The reviews had me believe it would be awesome, but it wasn't. I was bored out of my mind. I was looking at the time every few minutes.

Reminds me of when I saw the dark knight for the first time...

;)


Blasphemer!


j/k - I liked TDK, but didn't think it was the most amazing thing I've ever seen like so many did.
2006  Media / Brush and Quill / Re: Book Thread Continued on: February 11, 2009, 02:00:14 PM
I have that book, but didn't read it yet.  I started to read Imajica and got hundreds of pages in before I gave up on it because I hated it.  Will be interested to see if you post what you think about The Great and Secret Show.

Had to drop in and say I didn't like Finding Nemo.  It was a depressing movie... and that's as much as I can remember.  I seem to have disliked it enough that I blocked out most of the details.


And I saw Appaloosa last night.  Not bad, but not amazing either.  Mostly, I wasn't sure if I liked the ending or not.

On my walk to work today, I started an audio book called The Brotherhood of the Seven Kings. It's one of those librivox.org books, so you know it's old.  I'd never heard of it before, but the blurb on its page intrigued me.  Not far enough in to say whether it's good or not, but it looks like probably a collection of short stories about the same characters, which I like, especially for "walking to work" listening.

Sorry - was referring to dalucifer0's post a few above yours regarding Expelled.  I should have used the magic "quote" button. 

Don't really know anything about Religious.  I've seen enough of Bill Maher aside from that movie to know that I agree with him on some things, don't agree with him on other things.  Mostly, I think he just feels more strongly about stuff than I do, which helps in his line of work. :)
2010  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: January 30, 2009, 12:08:21 PM
Watched Office Space again, still loved it.

And I haven't seen Ben Stein's movie, but I've read enough about it to know that it's pretty much on the same level as Michael Moore's films in terms of truthfulness and accuracy.  Which is to say: "not very high."  Part of me would love to have a giant flame war on the topic of whether schools should teach intelligent design or not, but let's not and say we did (especially not in this thread).  I will stick to saying this and no more: I believe in God and creation, I believe that creationism and evolution are not mutually exclusive beliefs, I believe that creationism is a religious belief, not a scientific one, and I believe that schools should not teach religion in their science classes.
