What? WHAT?

Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman, two of my favorite female actresses (mostly Mila, really), doing naughty lesbian stuff?! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!

*runs to car and drives to movie theater at mach 1*


In any case I went and saw Tron 3D.

I think the 3D movies are becoming too gimmicky. Too many movies are coming out as 3D, and many of them should have never seen the light of day. Step up 3D was a prime example of why a large group of people in Hollywood should be tortured in a concentration camp. Next thing you know we'll have 3D romance comedies.

That said, the last 3D movie I saw was Avatard, and I figured that this is Tron and deserves to be seen in 3D. Frankly, after seeing it, I think I may have enjoyed it better in 2D. In fact, all the real world scenes were 2D, only the virtual scenes were 3D. And there were some bits where someone shot something at the camera so it popped out at us.
Also the trailers were in 3D. Like POTC 4.

The movie itself was a bit bland. The special effects and visuals were pretty and shiny and interesting. The plot kinda sucked. It was one of those "We have to get to X through enemy territory" kind of things. There was a portal to the real world. There were plenty of enemies between them and the portal. They had to get there to escape and save the world. They never did explain why the portal to the real world was so far. I assume it was so the programs couldn't get to it, but then why was there a TRAIN going to it??? How could the bad guy get to it so easily?!

And then there was the subplot of the villain being a tyrant, and committing genocide of poor innocent programs, and planning on taking over the real world. Explain to me how a program would escape a virtual world and enter the real world? And explain to me how he would rule the world with his tiny ass army?

There was no tension, there was no sense of dread or danger, and the main character was an obnoxious, cocky, typical 20ish character with no flaws and the ability to learn everything in 5 seconds. God damn, Hollywood needs to stop making characters like that.

So yes, the plot and characters failed. Except for that pale ass guy who ran the nightclub at the top of the city. He was cool. Also, Daft Punk was the DJs in that scene, which was awesome.

They did explain why it was so far. It was inside the digital city, which was controlled by young Jeff. Old Jeff escaped the city and lived on a cliff in digital country.

Not really. Unless the city encompasses the city and everything around it. The Portal did seem like it was "IN" the city, until they hopped on the train and flew over canyons and mountains to get to it. Not to mention flying an airplane there.

Another thing that bugged me, and maybe Jeff's character acted this way in the first movie, but he acted like a damn washed out hippy the whole movie, with "dude" this and "dude" that all over the place. It got annoying fast.
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Modern anime is a stagnant cesspool of regurgitated ideas.

I also saw it twice in theatres.

While visiting Sacramento for work I decided I'd rather watch a movie than go sightseeing because the place looked and felt just like Dallas. Where's the fun in that?

The second time was with my buddy who actually grew up watching it. I watched reruns only.

I'm waiting for the Blu-ray to come down in price before I bite, but I do plan on adding it to my rather larger DVD collection in the near future.

I used to buy the crap out of DVDs. Then I grew out of the Pokemon mentality and became pretty judicious about what I picked up.

Unfortunately, I don't save much since I started buying around four or five magazines off the newsstand a month, not counting comics.

I've slowed down in my buying, but mainly because I don't like to pay more then 7.50 for a movie and it has to be wide screen and it has to be something I've seen before and liked. After about 12 years of DVD ownership, that list of movies  is getting pretty small. Especially when I only have Wal-Mart and Target to buy from.

I don't waste my money on comics or magazines anymore.

I spend way more on comics than DVDs. I only buy a DVD if I really really want it and want to help support the production company (or I find something I like cheap at one of the used stores).

I watch almost everything online. The quality has improved a lot over the years, so if you have a decent connection (haha Rama fail :)) then you never need to buy a DVD ever again except to help out the ones you like.

True, that's what I never get dvds either (except Ponyo. I want to have the whole collection of Ghibli films. ) I only used to buy dvds too when they were cheap

Same here.  It has to be something I plan to wear out or really, really want to keep.  I spend less money this way and I save on space, which I really want more of and get by getting rid of crap I don't use.

I saw The Shop Around the Corner, the movie that You've Got Mail was based on.  (Although both owe their existence to an earlier play, some lines were lifted directly from TSATC and I tend to think they originated in that particular adaptation since I'm not certain the original play was even in English.)  Anyway, it actually had some lol moments, but given there's a suicide attempt due to an infidelity and the male love-interest plays a rather mean joke on the leading lady near the end, I have to say it's sure as hell not better than YGM.

Yeah, I quit buying DVDs when one day I glanced over at my wall of unopened anime that I now hate and will never watch.

Recently I bought Scott Pilgrim because I lurve it so damn much and watched it a bajillion times, and I also grabbed Toy Story 3 on a whim 'cause I hadn't seen it yet.

Toy Story 3 was great but I doubt I'll rewatch it much. Not really worth owning. Hardly anything is. And I mean that on a grand scale, not just DVDs.

I'm gonna join a monastery like Tony Jaa and learn kung-fu and eat rice three meals a day.

Oh holy shit, me and my cousin went and saw Season of the Witch because neither of us could reconcile with the sheer ridiculousness of the trailer. And then at that we saw a trailer for another Cage masterpiece called "Drive Angry" and we were all, "Oh shit, not again!"

But yeah, Season of the Witch is ass.

Anyway I got this weird thing about actually having something in my hands. I don't read books or comics online either. If I really want to read a comic I usually pick up TPB.

I know this makes me a bad person, but I download all the comics.

And I mean ALL of the comics. Most of them I don't even read, they get skimmed and chucked in the trash. Man, most comics are terrible.

But there are good ones, and it's so easy to get a hold of them, and I don't why everyone doesn't do it and kill the comic book industry.

I mean, the number of people who read comics, compared to the number that actually pay for them must be a fucking joke. I don't know how the companies haven't collapsed already. I guess it's because they're owned by Disney and Warner, respectively.

Last comics I read where when Dreamwave had Transformers.

I haven't picked up a Marvel title since the mid-90's and it's been even longer for D.C.

I really want Comics to go back to the like the old pulp paper and like 8 colors...that won't happen though. They'll just die.

I saw the Scott Pilgrim flick the other night. It was...cute. But one-watch-only cute. Don't see what the big deal is, neither the nerd-love nor the Faye-hate.

I download comics, since the only way to know what's going on is to read mass quantities of them. And I can't afford that. I only buy the main IDW Transformers book right now, and occasionally something else, but most comics, like joe says, are terrible now...despite their full color glossy stocked special artist cover variants.

Therefore, like Rama, I wish they'd go back to being simpler (re: less expensive) luxuries. When you pay $4 for a book, you're going to hoard it, and I'm out of money AND room for them at this point. If they were 75 like when I was a kid, maybe they could be selling 100,000 of a popular title a week again, instead of the 10,000 they're lucky to get today. And if they were more all-ages, maybe then I could recommend comics to kids...something I can't do nowadays.

You pay for what you get? Don't think so: most of the art sucks, and almost laminated magazine pages don't contribute to a story. I didn't need that crap back then when I got into comics, and I don't need it now. I'd still rather pull out an old Mort Weisenberg or Curt Swan-drawn Bronze-Age Superman book and read it today than the crap that passes for Superman now. And who the hell could beat Neal Adams or Jim Aparo on Batman?

I do think I comic that was well written and at least decently drawn on that old paper with old coloring method sold for between $.75 and $1.25 would sell well. If for nothing else because of the price people would pick it up and give it a shot. If you could then hook them, and not jump the price to $4.25 with next issue it might do well.

Bad art is a huge concern. For all I know, all the comics today are brilliantly written, but I can not get past the rush job pencils. A lot of it is just plain disgusting. There are very few artists who take real pride in their work anymore. I am not using that as an excuse to steal comics. I just steal them. If tomorrow I was unable to steal comics, I would not start buying them. I just would not read them anymore.

My apostrophe key is fucked if anyone is wondering about my syntax.

I've most certainly cut quite a few titles out. IDW's Transformers and GI Joe have both gotten around to being disappointing to me and they are about to go.

I've mostly moved on to Green Lantern and his associated books, and I have started on Flash and Green Arrow. Superman and Batman bore me the majority of the time. Wonder Woman I've never really given a chance, I suppose. I've also started picking up R.E.B.E.L.S which is, quite frankly, awesome.
