Have at it.

Even though I know what I'll be getting into, I will most definitely be in the theater come November.

On a slightly unrelated note, watching the trailer made me feel sorry for Will Yun Lee; poor dude (who is an American by birth) must be getting pretty tired of being typecast as Chinese and Korean commie bad guys, and not even getting to show off his martial arts talent most of the time. I guess that playing Colonel Moon in "Die Another Day" was sort of a curse for him...

This article makes me question my faith in humanity

On shooters:


"You come across a door. It says YOU NEED THE BLUE KEY. So you find the blue key."

Modern FPS:

"John Stalvern follows his objective marker to the Blue Door. He gets a call from Joson (v. Steven Jay Blum) informing him that the Blue Door is locked and to go to Security Control, and that he must fight the demons. He follows a magical marker which appears in his HUD to tell him where Security Control is, only to find that the console has no Blue Key! Gasp!"

"Joson calls him again and informs him that there's a spare key in Engineering (though the Warehouse) and a magical marker appears. Stalvern Fights the Demons and gets to Engineering across a bridge, which promptly explodes. Joson tells him there's a way up through The Vents and a helpful marker appears telling John that he can't walk through the enormous pit of fire in front of him. John makes his way through the vents, coming out through a ground-level grate ten feet from Security Control."

"But Gasp! The Cyber-Demon attacks and John drops the Blue Key in a cutscene! Joson tells him to go to the Blue Door where, behind some glass, a Programmer Self-Insert works on a console while some monsters bash on the door behind him. He BRAVELY opens the Blue Door just before the monsters kill him with an attack they don't have. John continues, wondering why he's even in this game."

Speaking as someone who liked Final Fantasy XIII, what's wrong with that model of gameplay? :p

(I kid; the linearity is one of the few things I dislike about that game.)

Sweet!! This better be better than that crapy Affleck film.

If there's any benefits to having a rough economy, here's one.

Anyone know anything about the upcoming indie film "Dog Tags"? Google isn't being very helpful due to the fact it shares its title with a 2008 film "Dog Tags: Don't Ask, Don't Tell".

Why would you ever use the word "ameliorating" in an article?

There are only a handful of Direct-to-DVD movies that are actually good.
