Quote from: Thin_J on February 14, 2008, 11:36:38 PM

On Jumper, it looks like a fun if silly "ride" type movie. Walk in, click ye'olde brain off for two hours and just enjoy myself. This looks like a movie I can do this for.

That's exactly what it is.  I saw it earlier and it's essentially a summertime popcorn action movie that's been released in the winter.  It's the type of fun that the Matrix was before they got all existential in the sequels, and I think they're trying to recreate it's breakout by releasing Jumper now.  If you go in expecting a deep story, well, then you're an freaking moron.   As Turtle stated earlier this is a superhero origin story, and the basic story is shown in the trailers, but then again what movie isn't?  As for the sidekick-  well, that Jumper isn't exactly a sidekick, so don't be concerned about him being off the wall (the trailers don't convey his role too well).  Think of it more as the 2 teaming up like Spiderman and the Punisher teaming up.  Some of the best parts were the interplay between the two of them.


oh, and it actually got applause from the audience when it was over, more then the Indiana Jones trailer got.  Then again, even if the movie had sucked, seeing Indy on the big screen would have been worth the 6 bucks to get in.  They also had trailers for 21, Semi Pro, The Bank Job and The Happening, all of which look interesting.

Now available on Steam.  It's kind of hard to explain, but you collect colored blocks while racing down a track, and the spacing of the blocks is set to the music you choose to play using your own music.  There's a demo, and the full game is only 10 bucks.

Which is the healthier breakfast?  Discuss.

I just find it disturbing that you are allowed to work in food service to begin with.  I know that jobs for individuals such as yourself are few and far between, but I just don't want you handling my food.

Dear PSTriple,

Sincerely,

Dearest Ceekay,

Open your eyes.  I have 10 PS3 games in my library not counting downloaded ones.  They're all fantastic games.  There are plenty of games out there.

Best,

depward

Dear dear Depward,

My eyes are open, and I only see one PS3 game that I've wanted enough to buy so far.  If I had actually paid money for my PSTriple I'd be very disappointed right now.  Perhaps GTA IV can assuage my feelings of loneliness, but until then my joy of PS3 gaming shall lie barren like the womb of an ancient spinster.


Hugs,

good.  now they can get my Star Wars movies out on Blu Ray!

Considering it took Lucas, what, six or seven years to bring the OT to DVD, I wouldn't get your hopes up for anything on Blu-Ray anytime soon. 

And Yoda will be redone in CG to match his new Clone Wars version because that's the way Lucas originally envisioned him and now we have the technology to achieve it.

and Yoda will actually have a room mate on Dagobah, an ancient Gungan with a mysterious link to the Skywalkers.....  icon_twisted

I do remember a rumor awhile back that Lucas was thinking of redoing some the lightsaber fight scenes in episodes IV-VI to make them feel more like the ones in I-III.

Hmm, the MMO is probably in the Original Trilogy timeframe then. 

or they could shed any baggage and set it in the Legacy time frame.

I think Dianetics is their "primer" for Scientology.

One of my coworkers mentioned she called a commercial to get a free copy of the book.  This was over ten years ago, and she still gets some sort of mail from them every day.  That's a lot of dead trees.

I'm probably out of Pirates.  I haven't fired it up in over a week, and the last couple of times I did fire it up I didn't even get out of the port I'm currently in.  I hate the boarding combat system, so ship to ship combat usually involves me blasting a ship until it's crew abandons ship, and I'm guessing you get less loot that way as usually I find nothing but a couple of items.  I may give it one final shot this weekend but it looks like after my free month is up I'll be scuttling the game.

Male or Female? You might not have known this, but a lot of non-living objects are actually either male or female. Here are some examples:

 
FREEZER BAGS: They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.
 
PHOTOCOPIERS: These are female, because once turned off; it takes a while to warm them up again.They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong Buttons.
 
TIRES: Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated
 
HOT AIR BALLOONS: Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their butt.
 
SPONGES: These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.
 
WEB PAGES: Female, because they're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.
 
TRAINS: Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people.
 
EGG TIMERS: Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.
 
HAMMERS: Male, because in the last 5000 years, they've hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.
 
THE REMOTE CONTROL: Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying

Or in the alternative, has anyone found out if Netflix still has that good list of current releases and has just hidden it?

It's still there. They just buried it in thier website...

Here it is  The direct link is in the Netflix Community Blog.   Go figure

you have 'Becoming Jane' in your queue?

For some reason that was showing as being in the queue.  Definitely wasn't mine since I'm not signed in at work.  I may have to grab those Charlie Chan flicks though- I've always wanted to see them.
