Wondering if anybody here has seen it. I myself am not going to see it until I see more reviews come in, and take a look at what other moviegoers here think.

I have very low expectations anyway, considering how crappy the last 3 were. This is reinforced by the fact that its getting almost nothing but bad reviews till now.

The actual universe of Star Trek has never been that interesting to me. Star Trek has some good episodes and movies, but I was only ever interested in the internal conflicts of the characters and the point of the story.

Sometimes I wish people wouldn't focus on the actual universe of Star Trek so much, that's what led to the TNG film franchise continuously churning out crapfests.

Got THF to 75 off campaign a while ago.
I'm at Wings of Honor for campaign but I'll probably get demoted since I'm being lazy recently.

I didn't say anything about her being cute. I said the girls who would buy those things wouldn't be AS cute.

;P

I'm sure she looks fine when she's not making stupid faces though.

Quote from: "Lard"
You've obviously never been mobbed by kids who have been trained to beg from foreign tourists by their parents. Beijing is a shithole.


I never said anything about Beijing not sucking. I do realize that Beijing is one of the worst polluted and screwed up (more advanced) cities in the world, but you shouldn't act surprised when people flame you for saying something with the specific intention of pissing people off. There are plenty of other people in this thread who criticize Beijing and I don't mind because they're not being obnoxious asses about it.

Oh right. Olympics.

I watched Swimming, and I laughed at how the Chinese team were wearing Sharkskin or whatever. It's fine to be super-competitive and want to win, but I doubt that's going to be making a difference. Personally, I think it was just a placebo.
1641  The Rest / General Discussions / Majority of MMO players transvestites? on: August 11, 2008, 10:28:15 AM
Generally it depends on the art direction of the game for me. If the male characters are butt-ugly, it turns me off to playing as them for hundreds of hours (Most Western MMOs have this problem for me).
1642  The Rest / General Discussions / Get the "anime look" with extra wide contact lense on: August 11, 2008, 10:10:46 AM
The problem isn't the contacts, it's that chances are most of the people who would order this kind of thing wouldn't be as cute as the girl in the article. =P

Beijing is a shithole and if the athletes had any conscience, they wouldn't even be there.


And if you had any conscience you'd go have yourself a nice cup of Drano.

Even so, I still find it hilarious that the folks at Capcom decided to do this on their own. Gotta love the 80s when games have terrible box art but have great gameplay inside. It's the opposite a lot nowadays. =P
1645  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Hey, look. It's a terrible idea for a new Sonic game. on: August 09, 2008, 12:38:46 PM
Quote from: "AJR"
Didnít the Sonic reboot on the 360 still sell surprisingly well despite being one of the worst games released for the console? I guess for some reason people still trust the Sonic name. No idea why.


As I recall, the Sonic 360 game was subpar on many levels, but far from being one of the worst games on the system.

One of the main complaints I constantly hear about that game is that it had so much potential if they just fixed the obvious flaws in the game- and really, those flaws, from what I can gather, could be easily fixed with just a few test plays.

Uh, wow. I thought you were joking with that, but apparently that's the "official" boxart.

Every movie that i've seen with Jolie in it is FUCKING AWFUL!!


Wanted was okay. Don't understand why people hate on Jolie so much.

Despite the really bad interpretations in the movies, there are plenty of comic books that make good use of her.


I actually thought Batman Returns had a pretty good Catwoman. But that character belongs in a Burton movie and would definately not fit in Nolan's films.

Quote
I know she had a bad movie a few years ago, but if the Hulk could get over that, surely Catwoman can too?


Plenty of people liked Hulk (I'm one of them), though I realize why so many people didn't like it. Catwoman was just embarrassing to watch.

If anything, you should bring up Batman and Robin...just to show the irony of this whole situation. :P

omgz, this could be the start of a beautiful...tolerance.

Well you guys know I've been wanting to join you on THF for a while now...all comes down to when you guys run though. About 10k TNL to 75 and I'm going to dedicate myself to meriting for a while after I hit 75.

And Fei, I doubt you have to buy a new copy of the game to start playing again if all you did was simply cancel your content IDs.
1649  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / New NCSOFT MMORPG announced: Blade & Soul on: August 01, 2008, 02:28:36 AM
Kind of funny how much attention and detail the Koreans are always giving to the characters' boobs.



If this is what the game looks like in real time I might actually try it out for laughs. I'm a bit disappointed how vacuous and boring the character faces look though.

The art looks like it's from the Magna Carta guy...love his art. =P

Quote from: "Daggerstrike"
How is overrated not intended to be a negative thing? Overrated means to rate or appraise too highly. TOO HIGHLY.
My issue with the term is that there is ALWAYS someone that comes in to almost every thread and says that whatever the people are talking about is overrated.


Then your problem is just generally with people who look like they're just doing it for the sake of going against the majority...honestly I don't think the majority of the people on this site overrated The Dark Knight- but some of the praise it's getting is pretty ridiculous. Nevertheless, I love the film, probably just as much as most of the people around here.

Quote
There are plenty of places to take both Bruce Wayne and Batman.
Code:
Bane could break his back, thus revealing to the world who he really is. Riddler is always an option. Catwoman of course. Talia al Ghul would of course be an interesting villain. Trying to get back at Batman for her father. And there is always Ra's al Ghul coming back. You mentioned Two Face.


With the history that Batman has there are a LOT of options for new movies.


Well I actually didn't mean Batman didn't have a wealth of stories to draw from (With the amount of stories he has they could easily make movies until the day I die), but rather what they can do with the established character in the movie continuity itself. Both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight had very strong central themes and a direction Bruce Wayne's character could advance. The Dark Knight has established that his job as Batman is now a lifelong job...a very bittersweet ending (Mostly bitter), but everything that happens from this point on is going to be "fight next villain". I know there's more to it than that, but I think you know what I mean.

I guess my problem isn't whether or not they will make another movie (Because they're going to until they stop bringing in cash, which is probably never if they keep the tone dark), but whether any movies from now on are going to have the kind of strong development for the character Bruce Wayne that can carry an entire film.
