I live in NJ and my wife keeps panicking over this.... I keep telling her to turn the news off, there is just about 0 chance of it affecting us.... I have also been having arguments with some friends who keep seeing the nuclear plant exploded and there has been nuclear explosions....

Still, very bad for Japan.... Anyone know if it's possible/likely for this to actually result in a nuclear explosion of some sort? I don't know enough about it... What's worst case?

Was a little puzzled why KPA are carrying M-4s rather than AK-47s or something. I guess the idea is they've either confiscated it from the U.S. or from South Korea.

This was explained in the book and some of the intro videos I think... They had this planned out and started training on US equipment before the invasion and yes, ended up confiscating a lot of US equipment..

making it more like Blair Witch Project....

Spoiler for Hiden:
These are supposed to be real, so if the film was left on the moon in a hostile area, how did it get back to earth? It wasn't being transmitted.... At least with BWP, you could see someone stumbling across it in the woods, how many people go for strolls on the moon?

My only issue with the plot -- the part about the Apollo 18 mission never being revealed -- is wouldn't it be just a little hard to cover up a Saturn V rocket launch?  smirk

"Uh, that's nothing! Um, we're launching a satellite! Yeah, that's the ticket..."

I saw the trailer in a big theater before Battle Los Angeles. It sounds grimly fun enough, though I'm not sure why big parasitic alien spiders (or whatever) would want anything with the moon. There's nothing THERE, not even a plentiful enough supply of humans to munch on.  icon_razz

Spoiler for Hiden:
"Uh, that's nothing! Um, we're launching a satellite! Yeah, that's the ticket..."
I think that's the actual answer they gave...
Spiders were about half/quarter "Facehugger" size. They never explained why they were there. They only existing on the dark side of the moon...

Also, a question not too spoilerish I think, but just in case:
Spoiler for Hiden:
There are parts where they go into crater where there is no light, but they do not use a normal flashlight device... They use something that acts like the MiB memory eraser or a camera flash... it flashes for a few seconds and stops... Now I can see why they did this for the movie, but does anyone know if this is an accurate item and if so, why the hell would they use that and not a constant light to see?

The characters are pretty thin, but the cast is solid imho. I would've liked just a bit more detail on why the aliens are slaughtering us. Oil? Gas? Silicone breast implants? There's no explanation at all.  icon_razz

Spoiler for Hiden:
I believe that they mention in the film that they are here for our water.... They even mention that the water levels are dropping rapidly... The reason they are slaughtering us is because they are possibly trying to colonize as welll and we are in the way....

Just finished seeing this.... I was excited going in, not so much coming out.....
Some possible big spoilers
Spoiler for Hiden:
First off, if you have seen the poster, ignore it..... It has just about nothing to do with the movie.... The poster makes it look like like a predator type film.... no..... not even close..... The "monster"? Rocks....Sentient rocks.... ROCKS!!!! WTF?!? Rocks that transform into spider type aliens, but rocks none the less.... Also, I think you see them in about 3 scenes..... This is Blair Witch Paranormal Project in Space... Hell, there is even a scene very much like the ending to the Blair Witch!!! The movie was also VERY slow going...... I kept losing interest in the beginning and even towards the end.... I really liked the idea behind the movie, but the execution? not so much...  I was really looking forward to it and while it wasn't horrible, I am glad I got to see this for free.... Probably not bad for a rental....

Does anyone know about what it costs to get data off a dead HD? I have a Mac mini drive that died a while back and I hadn't backed it up yet. I has some pictures from my wedding on it and ideally I'd like to get them back. If it's not exorbitant I'd like to pursue it.

If it's dead, then you may be able to get it for about $1,500 through Staples. There is no charge to attempt it and it's through Seagate Recovery Services. If they can't get it back, they don't charge you. If they can only get it partially back, they check with you first.
In the interests of full disclosure, I work for Staples...

My wife and I saw it today and we liked it it, but I wouldn't say I was excited about it... It had some interesting moments, but nothing that shouted wow... However, I am not a Western type of movie watcher (Other than Blazing Saddles) so that probably had something to do with it... I suppose if you like Westerns and enjoy comedy, you may like it better....

Keep at it.... My wife was the same way, but I kept pushing her and then "accidently" started it from the Tivo while we were eating... She ended up enjoying it and Zombies/horror are definately not her thing usually (Other than the Resident Evil series)...

He wrote the game himself, and yes it's "inspired by" Minecraft as the programmer says.. (I say, it is pretty much a clone), but from reading some comments around that site, I found out the Minecraft is a clone of another game, Infiniminer, so I can't see too much wrong with this to be honest, other than having it on XBLA...
He does have some better graphics and the water works differently.. smile

Definately Best First Tribal Evah!!! Holy crap, my wife and I were flipping out!! Phillip is crazy... We couldn't beleieve what he was doing.... In his interagations did he tell suspects, "I'm going to be honest, we have nothing on you and we are just hoping you'll confess.." I wonder if he left the federal agent job because he was asked to.... This has to be one of the worst flubs ever... Even if he felt he was being honest, Rob knows it would have meant more if he didn't wait until tribal... i say rob splits the votes again... phillip and kristina... one of them goes and kristina may use the idol, leaving her open for the 3rd tribal if she doesnt go...

You actually can search for new movies on your 360.  There is a full alphabetical search tool, as well as lists of new movies added to instant watch, things similar to what you have just watched, genre lists and specific lists based on your rating/watching history.
I will have to look again... The last time I looked (about a month ago), I didn't see anything like this. It only let me play things that were in my instant watch queue...

IIRC, there is a limited number of devices that you can connect to your Netflix account so you would have to take this into consideration.
You will also need his account info and an access code that Netflix will generate to link the accounts...
other than that it should work.....

2) With the animals in the house, it looks like they despawn after a while... A few did die, because I left the door open to my mine and they fell off the huge drop, but even after I closed the door, the animals inside disappeared...

Look in the Options menu. There should be a difficulty setting. There you can change it to a few different modes that effect the way enemies spawn. Peaceful mode will prevent baddies from spawning and will make all of the Nether enemies stop attacking you. If you need a break to do a mega-project, switch to peaceful mode. Of course, then you are a little girl for doing so, but who is judging? (me... silently)

Thanks, I'll look for this.. Don't know how it changed though. I think I had it on normal and they were spawning before I went on my mining expedition, but I'll check this anyway...

Anyone know why I can't find any mobs anymore... I spent "days" in my mine just mining loads of crap so I could outfit my guy with some decent weapons and armor, then I climbed back up to my house and I have days outside and wandering and other than some basic animals, I haven't seen anything.. I especially want some spiders so I can start farming some string and make some bows...... I would also like some creeps or ghasts to get my sulfur....
Is there anywhere you can think of that I could look? As an aside, I never saw anything while mining either, although somehow, I had animals get into my house even though it was closed up....
