^I hoped you liked my Grammaton quip.

Oh, I forgot to tell you about the main villain. His defining characteristics are, he has scares on the side of his head, he likes his coffee and he can hold his breath for about a minute. Such a colourful character, don't you think?


Does he have severe astmha or something?

Okay I just made my DVD player region free by entering a secret code. Man, that reminded me of the famous Street Fighter II code. So Nostalgic.

So I tested my newly hacked DVD player with The Big Lebowski and guess what?! It worked. So awesome, I will never ever have to watch movies from a Laptop screen.

I watched Dino Riders last night.

It's awful. I used to have all the toys.

Currently watching Gantz on DVD.  Hyper-violent and graphic, and the episodes just seem too short.  Saw it first online, and definitely just as good the second time through, and I haven't even gotten the point that it really picks up.

Gantz

Prior to that, I had watched season 6 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  I've been watching through the entire series since I got the complete set for my birthday last summer, and I've gotta say it's really, really good.  I had watched the first couple seasons when it aired, but couldn't really catch it after that, and it's much better than I remembered.  That said, I place season 6 as the worst one so far; still good, but they pushed the magic angle past its breaking point.

Disney sure is lucky. They  tanked so bad in the 70's and up until little mermaid and aladdin came out which were a little fresher and entertaining, and which also provided the template for the next billion movies. Then when they went into a slump they were saved by pixar.
Saw avatar and kept thinking of other actors that could have been more interesting in the main role.

I just discovered this thread, Lion King will forever be the greatest Disney film ever.

I saw District 9 again tonight. I still feel that will be a sci-fi classic for generations to come. I LOVE this movie.

I hate The Little Mermaid! It has nothing to do with the quality of the movie, though. I hate it because when my sister was little, she watched that movie every . . . single . . . day for months! And she'd play it as loud as she could too! Argh!

Under the Sea, under the sea! Darling it's better down where it's wetter, take it from me. Up on the shore they work all day, out in the sun they slave away. While we devotin' full time to floatin'. Under the sea

Gantz sounds like something i would like.  what is it i never heard of it?

i watched the first two or three episodes of Mad Men (season 1) after a friend has been on my case telling me how it's the greatest thing since the sopranos and blah blah blah.  so far i'm thoroughly unimpressed.  don't know if it's worth my while watching on

Oh, I saw Night at the Museum 2. Suprisingly very funny.

It has a good natured sense of humour and warmth. Very watchable.  Weird that Ben Stiller is the main character, yet the only thing i the movie that isn't funny.

There's really no spoiler-free way to describe it, as the storyline is fairly weird and complicated.  Oddly enough, I'd recommend watching in English as the protagonist's voice-acting genuinely adds to the experience (though the best of it doesn't start until about halfway through the series ~13 or so episodes in)

This is one of my favourite heart-warming and uplifting films which I have often watched at times when I was down.  Special recommendation for yoda!

Wilbur wants to kill himself

Little Miss Sunshine is also good but i'm sure you've seen it.

I read all the books. Got into it reading books intended for my overseas cousins. Half blood price was a weak book, seemed like Rowling would have kicked things off after the end of the last book.

I can say that the last book is a fitting end but I hear warner bros are milking it for two movies.

Watch one in a later season. If it doesn't grab you what can you do.  I think it's decent and I like the ad agency setting.

ah, the books are okay. My mother bought them to ship overseas to a cousin, I ended up reading the first book out of boredom and got into it. They capture that school yard spirit of being a kid. Not bad at all. The movies are okay, sometimes entertaining.

It's no lord of the rings though
