That walther pps was out of place lol
Nothing more implausible than "What if dinosaurs survived?" and showing a Tyrannosaurus roaming the streets of New York.

If dinosaurs survived, there wouldn't be a New York. Perhaps we'd have existed, but our technological advancements would never have happened and we'd still be quite primitive today. There's a theory that dinosaurs would have eventually evolved into humanoid beings and developed a civilization much like we have, but I find that highly unlikely (and kind of crackpot) when looking at animals like crocodiles and sharks which have existed since the age of dinosaurs and changed very little, if any at all, over the course of 65 million years compared to how the human race has advanced over just the last 10 to 12,000 years of its measly 10 million year presence here. If crocs and sharks haven't changed, why would dinosaurs need to?

David shot one with an RPG in Dino Crisis 2. It only destroyed the Rex's right eye.

I got to see the original Superman movie with my grandparents on Friday. It was very good and I don't think anybody can beat Christopher Reeve's Superman.

Had you never seen it before? Wow. Anyway, it's all downhill from there. Superman II was the beginning of the end. Everyone talks about the Donner cut, but it's a bit overrated.

And the first pre-order for the upcoming fall releases went to ... Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. I don't even know what the running up would be. GoW3?

Anyone seen Columbiana yet? I saw it yesterday and thought it was good. There's a whole ton of guns, i added 19 new enties to the page and I'm sure i missed some. Zoe Saldana's character, Cataleya (NOT Columbiana, as the page originaly stated) is a hit-and run ninja who makes her hit and moves, which realy makes her untouchablity belivable. There's a final, brutal hand-to-hand fight at the end that reminded me of the third Bourne movie, as she takes on her openent in a bathroom using everything availible. There's also a couple of humerous moments when she demonstrates her total paranoid preparedness. It's a good film, go see it.
