i thought "warning" was an odd way to tell me he was having trouble with my character's name!

Perhaps this is the place to ask this question, given the nature of the thread:  is there ANYONE out there who thinks the movie "Meet the Spartans" is even remotely funny in any way, shape or form?   icon_confused

It literally pains me to see the commercials (I'm not nearly brave enough to rent this one) for it as it seems to operate at a level I don't think I've encountered since 4th grade classrooms...yet it appears to be marketed at adults/teenagers. 

It also seems to be part of a larger trend with such films as Epic Movie and Date Movie (part of the Aaron Seltzer and writing partner Jason Friedberg era, I guess) seemingly doing well enough at the box office to merit more and more of these movies.

Clerks II.  Everyone always talks about how insightful and funny it is, but I found it to be a juvenile attempt at displaying "30 something ennui" by a filmmaker from whom I expect more.  Even the fart jokes were stale.

High Fidelity.  I thought it was an annoying attempt at trying to tell me how cool it was.  It was like being locked in a room with a New York party scene hipster for 90 minutes...and they just HAD to tell me how provincial I was the whole time.

hepcat, I sent you an invite late last night! Warning, I tried to send you an invite but it tells me that none of your toons exist (?). Are the toons active and did you spelled their names correctly?

hmmm...I thought that was the correct spelling.  I'll double check tonight after work and post it again.

thanks for the heads up!

I do believe I'll fire up my copy this weekend.  Pound for pound, only the Elder Scroll series has seen as much game time out of me in the last 10 years.   icon_biggrin

i'm ONE mission away from finishing the first game.  plus, i'd like to get some more time in with my assassin/dervish in the expansions.

hepcat, when you reload the game this weekend, post your main here so we can send you an invite into the new guild.

rittchard, I do believe ArenaNet is indeed addressing the issues you posted on GW2. The world PVP aspect, specially, sounds enticing.

thanks, i just loaded it up to get the updates (man, i have been away a long time...that took forever) and my main is Thulsa Darkchylde.  If i recall correctly, getting that one into the guild will also put my others into it as well.

I remember how ticked off I was at Knightshade when I first registered with GT all those many moons ago.  I honestly felt he went too far.

I remember it like it was yesterday:

GT:

Name

Birthdate

Location

....What are you wearing?

Me:

what?

GT:

What are you wearing...right now?

Me:

I don't see how that's perti....

GT:

Are they tight pants?  Jeans, maybe?

Me:

Wait...what?

GT:

Just answer the questions. 

You doing anything tonight?

Me:

Seriously, this is creeping me ou...

GT:

Shhh...don't type.  You're going to ruin this moment.

Me:

I would have to agree that the critics kind of overreacted.  it was funny, but not in the same league as movies like  Animal House, Caddyshack, or Back to School.  Those are classics.

I didn't really think that the first Harold & Kumar was particularly good.

Pineapple Express is up to 70% on RT now that more reviews are coming in.  We're going sunday. Stoked.

was it a great comedy?  no.  but i did enjoy the stereotype breaking that was, i suspect, the primary reason for the film.

Don't call him out like that, hep.  He has higher morals than us 'comic book geeks'.  Plus, he can get a date and we can't.

lining up sock puppets around my living room and giving them the names of the 2007 Chicago Bear's cheerleading squad is most certainly a "date", damnit!

I have a dvd collection in the THOUSANDS now, and between renting and buying I've given plenty to the movie industry.

I personally feel that this is perfectly reasonable.  I've purchased thousands and thousands of dollars worth of goods at retail stores all over this great country of ours and I feel I've done my part to support these stores.  From now I'll be doing my shopping via the ol' "five finger discount".

I'm actually currently undergoing an intensive drug treatment program designed to help me block out memories of Tara Reid trying to pronounce "Newfoundland" in "Alone in the Dark" and Burt Reynolds as a good ol' boy King in "Dungeon Siege: In the Name of God, WHY!?".  Hopefully, God willing, I'll be a whole man once again...someday.

after watching harold and kumar escape gitmo, i think i'm beginning to move away from stoner humor movies. 

That's because Harold and Kumar escape from Guantanimo Bay was a bad movie. It lacked the whimsical fun and smarts of the first movie -- two stoners going to white castle = road trip movie; two stoners running from guantanimo bay = insult to intelligence. They were running from the dumbest villain ever to grace the big screen (even worse than will farrell's character in J&SBSB). There were too many scenes that were groan inducingly bad that by the end of it I was bored. It ultimately failed because they tried to do too much with simple characters.

There were some great moments though. The scene with the moronofficer talking to NPH's about his role in starship troopers... completely genius.

The Pineapple Express, I have high hopes for - because I find Seth Rogen consistently funny. Thug life.

i actually agree with that assessment.  even NPH couldn't save it, unfortunately.   icon_neutral

Welcome to "Reasons why KS doesn't use VMWare 101".  Easy to restore, but stability...eh...proof is in the ink in this case.

We always find out proof in the pudding, rather than ink. It gets our tongues all icky and blue.

So I was playing this new VMWare flash game called CrashOO ... its on PopCap games now... or was it Hepcat games?

the only game that Hepcat Games is currently offering is "Equus: The Role Playing Game".

Well, seems like more than just a few of us were a little put off by the voice Bale takes on when in the Batman suit :

Quote
Reviewing the film for MSNBC, Alonso Duralde wrote that Bale's Batman in "Batman Begins" "sounded absurdly deep, like a 10-year-old putting on an 'adult' voice to make prank phone calls. This time, Bale affects an eerie rasp, somewhat akin to Brenda Vaccaro doing a Miles Davis impression."

however, that one thing doesn't do much in the way of harming this great film.

I most certainly did not intend for my post to be seen as a "how to"" manual on crashing OO.  I was simply making an observation here that hopefully someone from OO would take note of and perhaps address.  Contacting the admins for OO was not an option at the time as I couldn't get into OO (obviously...hence my post).  By the time it did come back I had moved on to something else and forgot to contact them.

In any case, it's not like i'm the first person to post a "hey i found a problem with the site" message in this thread or at OO on the meta board.   Roll Eyes

as i noted in my initial post, i regard this crime as shocking and down right frightening.  i have nothing but the utmost sympathy for the victim's family and I'm apalled at the extent of evil displayed by the murderer. 

however, gallows humor has existed since the moment humans traded fins for feet (or, if you're a creationist, were plopped into the garden).  it's in our dna to make light of things that scare us.  it helps us to deal.  yes, tasteless at times.  but it doesn't mean those making jokes about the situation are any less aware of the gravity of the situation.

in any case, as pointed out, this thread was purely an attempt to poke fun at the number of threads that popped into existence after the first one.
