I was outnumbered at Blockbuster and was forced into watching Tropic Thunder. It had its moments, but overall, I thought it was a bore. It just went downhill once you learn that all of them are actors, and didn't rekindle until Matthew Mconiwhatever blew up a missile with TiVo an hour and a half later.

I watched something called The Triplets of Belleville in my dad's movie collection.

Man, if you want something with original ideas, this film definitely has them. Fans of animated films should really, really love this.

I saw Speed Racer at the midnight showing.

It's got to be one of my favorite movies I've ever seen in the theater. I never stopped smiling; it was just downright, 100% enjoyable, and a brilliant way to burn away two hours.

Best ten bucks I've ever spent.

Lots of stuff, lately. Me and some friends had a few movie nights.

- The Fountain - Awesome, awesome movie. It's really beautiful to watch, and I'd definitely like to watch it again with greater concentration.
- 40 Year-Old Virgin - Always a fun one to watch. Not as funny the second time around, but there are still a lot of laughs in there.
- Sweeney Todd - Very entertaining film. When it first started up, and the initial song was sung, I was a little scared, but dang, by the end of the movie, it all just seemed to work so well. Every single death scene was a treat to watch, especially the ones of the two protagonists.
- Finding Nemo - Probably my favorite Pixar movie. It's way too charming.
- Spy Kids - We mainly watched this for the "Oh shitake mushrooms" quote, but we all ended up enjoying it a lot more than we thought we would. It's a horible movie, but it's so dang hilarious at the same time!
- 30 Days of Night - Pretty stupid. I couldn't take it seriously once the Bob Saget look-alike came into the picture and started sucking on necks.

I also saw 21 in the theaters. It was entertaining for the most part, but the story wasn't all that believable once Laurence Fishburn's character became prominent. The blackjack aspects of the movie were spot on, and I really dug it when the protagonists were hopping around in the casinos, but the rest of the plot was just...blah.

I picked up a copy of an anime film called Tekkonkinkreet for my dad's Christmas present, and we finally got around to watching it. I thought it was amazing, as did he. First off, the artwork is freakin' gorgeous; the opening scene is breathtaking (the film has this awesome faux-3D pop to it), and the film is littered with all sorts of dreamy colored pencil sequences that are phenomenal to watch. The story was fantastic, too, and the characters were amazingly likeable. It's an R rated movie, and there is a lot of blood and killing and whatnot, and it was the first time in a while that I actually cringed at the sight of a character getting physically/mentally tortured. To top it off, the voice acting (we watched it in English) was fantastic. I think I was so attached to the characters thanks to the way their characters were portrayed.

You should definitly check this one out.

I went to a showing of Shoot 'Em Up, which was beyond awesome.

You know you're in for one hell of a ride when Clive Owen shoves a carrot into a dude's mouth and out the back of his head within the first ten minutes of the movie. :P
40  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Simpsons on: July 30, 2007, 07:15:59 AM
Yeah, the Simpsons Movie for me, too. It was much, much better than I expected it to be, and managed to get a lot of laughs out of me. If you enjoy the Simpsons, you'll get a definate kick out of it.

I really can't wait to see how much money the movie makes, considering how much bloody advirtising was done to promote it.

Can't go wrong with Laharl when it comes to funny game quotes.
42  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Replaying RPGs? on: February 28, 2007, 10:54:35 PM
I really don't replay through many games, since I always seem to have other games on my plate (I'm not too fond of juggling multiple games). If I do hit a period of time where I have nothing to beat/want to play, then I usually end up popping in Final Fantasy IX, which is one of the few games I've actually felt the need to replay.

Sometimes, playing through a particular game reminds me of games that I've beaten in the past, which always gets me thinking and craving to replay them. For instance, I recently got the original Shadow Hearts game, and playing that has really sparked new interest into playing its sequel, seeing as though they are tied together storywise to a certain extent. It's also reminded me a lot of the Legend of Dragoon due to the timed button press battle system, so I'm definately going to give that a replay once a game drought rolls around.

Then there are those games like Threads of Fate, which are short, sweet, and very easy to replay through due to their overlapping game files and New Game + features. It's a shame that not many games give you a worthwhile New Game + feature, since that'd probably give me a lot more motivation to replay certain games. :P
43  The Rest / General Discussions / All time favourite game characters. on: March 08, 2006, 12:49:10 AM
I actually liked Zidane as well, so you aren't alone there :P

Mallow (Super Mario RPG: LotSS) - I'm a sucker for little tiny mages that are always looked down upon as being weak, or are considered the underdog, and end up rising up throughout the game's story to kick some ass.

Vivi Ornitier (FFIX) - See above.

Laharl (Disgaea) - The infamous "horses weiner" line remains one of the few bits of text from a game that I actually remember.

Yuri (Shadow Hearts 1+2) - He's one of the few main characters in an RPG that I really didn't get fed up with throughout the course of the game. I thought he as a character was really developed well, despite me not even playing the first installment of the series.

Quote from: "Miho"
[*] Silent protagonists


These piss me off more than anything. I know you are supposed to feel more emotionally attached to the character and all, but unless you have a strong cast of characters to back your muteness up, you might as well not have the character at all. Plus, having no voice always leads you to some incredibly awkward 1 on 1 cutscenes between you (the mute dude) and another character.

Unbalanced boss battles annoy me too. What I really mean, is the way you get completely destroyed by, lets say, one of the main villians, but the next time you fight them with only a few level ups in between, you are somehow able to miraculously beat them.

And it's been said before in the past thread, but instant death spells are damn annoying too.
