You scored 18 out of a possible 20

Very good! You're the Special Agent Johnson of Die Hard quizzes.

Just saw this with my 11yr old and we liked it. I knew what to expect coming in and I was not disappointed. Great effects and character design along with some cheesy humour and an interesting story.

Put it this way - I liked this better than Iron Man 3 !

Saw it last night and enjoyed it for what it was.
I knew ahead of time that there was no real link to the book so my expectations were managed.
I simply feel that this could have been called '28 Days Later: The Global Story'



I do think they did a great job of portraying a sense of tension throughout the movie.

Romy, there were no fights in NY btw, that would make it Marvel.  DC uses fake cities, they can't afford the real thing.  ninja

Looks like Xbone games were not being played on actual Xbone consoles.
http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Xbox-One-Games-E3-Were-Running-Windows-7-With-Nvidia-GTX-Cards-56737.html

And before anyone goes to slam me with " they all play their demos on high end PCs " If memory serves didn't we hear multiple times 'the following demo is played in real time in engine....." ??

Quote:I suppose the only real damning thing about this kind of exposure is that Microsoft didn't even use “comparable specs" from the company providing them with video cards in their home console. For those of you who don't know the Xbox One will run on a modified AMD GPU that, according to Extreme Tech, is on the level of a mid-ranged Radeon 7790. I guess the 7790 wasn't powerful enough for the Xbox One's E3 games eh? They needed a real manly card like the GTX 780, eh?

Oh, and they have reserved seating in all of their theaters now. When did that become a thing? It slowed the ticket line to a crawl. I don't think we'll be going back there.

Cineplex up here in Canuckistan has a mobile app for ticket purchase and for the reserved seating engagements you can also select your seat. Redeem ticket at theater by scanning bar code and you're in!

Just got back from the super surround sound icon_razz 3D showing.
Loved it. Not a comic book guy but liked the story and the new telling.

I really liked the portrayal of Zod. For me he just oozed power and fear. Well done performance wise.

Spoiler for Hiden:
destruction was a little much in NY battles but didn't ruin the movie.
Spoiler for Hiden:
totally surprised at the kill scene
Spoiler for Hiden:
loved the little references to the 1st movie

saw it Saturday and really enjoyed it. I am far from an avid fan by the way - I just never got into the Trekky universe.

It was way better than Iron Man 3 by a warp factor of 10!  icon_lol

Great story, acting and action. Highly recommended.

question if y'all don't mind. I have the books but have not read them as of yet.

question: where were the white walkers marching to at the end of last season? I assumed to the wall and then further South?
180  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [movie] Iron Man 3 on: May 19, 2013, 05:51:09 PM
OK here's my 2 cents. I enjoyed the movie although not as much asybe first two.

I was sufficiently entertained and bought into the plot.


However what struck me about 1/2 way through the movie was the following: I couldn't shake the feeling that since the Avengers movie why can't he simply call for help? I mean whats the point of them all having their own movies now that we all know that they can do more as a group?

I guess in retrospect I didnt buy into the plot afterall ?

thanks ceekay!

question for all. I'm getting a little tired of fedex'ing at this point. I just killed the Griffin when can I actually take a stab at the dragon? I have 750k in gold can I buy my way in?  Tongue
183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dragon's Dogma - Dark Arisen soon! on: April 30, 2013, 03:28:02 AM
Okay I'm at the point where we've all been with rpgs. I have 311k and am thinking about buying a bow for my ranger........it costs 222k from the black cat merchant pre dragon fight.  
Thing is I can't figure out reliably if it'll make a difference. All I have now is a level 2 longbow. I'm only level 29.

Hate this!

if I store items with 'merchants' for use later does the storage inventory follow me to other areas in the game? Or must I return to the merchant who I originally stored the items with?
I am picking up too much shit smile
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Dragon's Dogma - Dark Arisen soon! on: April 26, 2013, 06:13:32 PM
not sure if this answers you or not but my local ebgames says that the new disk has the old content complete game as well.
I'm trading in bioshock later today for this. they are offering Dragons Dogma expansion for free with tradeins over 15 bucks. sounds like a deal to me.

I really want to know from Kato what it's like over there as he seems to be the best 'expert' on this topic.
So Kato if you could can you provide some answers / feedback on the following:

How do the SK soldiers feel really? Are they willing to defend?

What are your feelings on the SK and US forces to actually repel NK forces coming across the DMZ

Obviously no one wants conflict but do you think the SK people would support a conflict if pushed

Thanks,
Roman

True or not he fucked the franchise. He was handed the golden egg and decided to 'show' the world how 'smart' he was by fudging and weaving mystery into something that did not need it.
Fuck him.


1st post when I start turning to the dark side:
you know whats funny?.....

I saw this last week and liked it for what it was. Left the theater and thought that I could see it again later with my wife etc.

But now after reading this thread over the past week I am getting angry - no wait that is too harsh. I am 'irked' now that I have been drawing parallels between what I saw and what is being posted here. Boy oh boy did he ever flub it - I think that it may have all started with the re-write and adding that Lost screenwriter to the mix http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/05/11/damon-lindelof-prometheus-life-after-lost/ That new screenwriter (Damon L.) stated in an early post link (above) that he told Ridley that there was too much Alien material (chest bursters/face huggers / aliens) in the original screenplay and suggested that the movie could be made without making the direct links that the fans want and need. What a douche! If I want artsy fartsy make me think I will head back to university and enroll in philosophy and sociology classes.

If they expect to make a sequel and make people happy they had better be prepared to answer all the questions and spoon feed the audience with explanations and details. Wrap it all up with nice paper and bows and ribbons.

Now I'm mad!

2nd post with my original anger fully engrained and my journey to the Dark side complete:

now that I think back to the Lindelof interview I get a little more peeved.

Lost was frustrating yet entertaining - but ultimately I feel that the writers wanted to stroke their own manhood over and over.
This hubris came through with flying colours in Prometheus - I can still see Lindelof beating off in a corner like a maniac happy in his content that he stoked the cerebral fires again for those of us who aren't as 'smart' as he is.

Lindelof confirms in the article that the original screenplay author is 'OK' with the re-write - I call BS. I bet that guy is seething now that his potential Xenomorph Summer blockbuster has been relegated to something that needs a sequel to explain what ultimately should have been handled in 2hrs and a $13 movie ticket.

Listen - I am a smart man - but I don't need to weave a web to prove that I am a smart man. Fucking guy is so full of himself.

Quote of the year for me: This is a film I wanted to love and I hate it all the more because of it.

 - Thanks for that one WorkingMike.

I'm not trying to troll but I'm not blown away by the 360 graphics. coming from Tomb Raider type visuals this one seems a little flat.

199  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: North Korea threatens 'final destruction' of South Korea on: March 26, 2013, 08:31:54 PM
I freely admit that I don't come from a military family nor do I think I could join up BUT I would really like to see NK smacked like the petulant child they are.
Just a big enough smack that they would think twice next time. 

I support and admire our troops and don't wish for an invasion just a couple rockets etc to shut the NK up.
