If it's done right, it might work. I'm incredibly distressed at the thought of Channing Tatum in the titular role, but only time will tell what happens there.

On a slightly similar note, is anyone here looking forward to the new Conan flick coming out next month?

Anybody but Tatum for He-Man (I personally want Skarsgård for He-Man). But as long as the director knows what he is doing, it could be good.

As for Conan, the director's resume isn't particularly good (he directed the remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday the 13th which critics hated). However, they do have Ronon from Stargate Altlantis as Conan, so it could be good.

Professional critics suck, I don't pay any attention to those yahoos anymore. I liked both said remakes. Directors' resumes don't mean squat to me either, as I go in with a totally open mind and judge movies on an individual basis.

Yes. Brad "Iceman" Colbert on Generation Kill and Eric Northman on True Blood. Just beef him up and he's my ideal He-Man. You got a problem with that?

Yes, it was terrible, but it also came at the absolute zenith of He-man's popularity, so it made sense to do it then. It's been almost a decade since the last He-man revival.

Finished AC2. The final few sequences have enough logic and plot holes to fill a dozen other titles. Still, ordered Brotherhood.

AC games are good, but known for crappy endings and plot holes. One thing i hate, is the way they did dlc, they leave out sections of game, and almost instantly release it (while games like fallout develop dlc over time and account or user feedback, releaseing a polished product later) AC decides to make you pay or what should have been released in the first place.

If you believe Ubisoft saying Revelations will end the series up then there's gonna be alot of holes to fill.

I thought they were saying there was another numbered game with yet another new PC coming after Revelations?
