I always presumed they did it because they believe it gives you more of an attachment to the character.

Yeah, but the trouble is there is no character to become attached to, you're just a hole in the story. It's like when they put annoying kids in kids' movies because they think there needs to be an actual child there for the kids in the audience to pretend is them, when kids have no problem pretending they're Batman or Optimus Prime and tend to just wish the kid characters would stop getting in everyone's way.

That is my exact thoughts of Shia Labeouf being in Transformers.

Yeah I hate silent heroes too. Characters who talk are signifcantly more interesting. laughed when when in MW2 soap talked until you played as him agan then went silent.....

I saw "Super 8" yesterday (it was the first time in about 9 months that I went to see a movie in a theater - the last was when I saw "The Town"). I enjoyed it and highly recommend it.

What was it about, exactly?

It's a story about kids making their own monster movie (on Super 8 film, hence the title), and also an actual monster that's on the loose while they're making the movie. It's kinda hard to describe the plot without spoiling it, so just trust me and go check it out.

One other thing: It turned out to be a really good date movie (which I would not have expected going in), so take a girl to see it.

Sounds interesting

I just bought Modern Warfare 2 with my debit card. I use to have the game but the disc got scratched up beyond repair.

"Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood" is quite possibly the funniest spoof I've ever seen, though it won't make sense if you haven't watched "Boyz N The Hood" and "Menace II Society" first.
