  1. Nah, I think it was just a gag.
  2. My favorite part of that episode is definitely when Sonic gets a 1-Up from using Luigi to kill a bunch of Koopas in a row.
  3. Man these get better every time. It's too bad they take sooooo long to come out, but it never ceases to be fun to watch.
  4. I have no idea how that show got renewed. I tried so hard to like it, but it bored me to tears.
  5. It was fun, and leaves no doubt that it is a Tarantino movie.
  6. Well I don't mind so much that we have actual plot between the robots fighting, but I would much rather learn about one of the secondary transformers than spend a half hour with Sam's new roommate or his parents.
  7. I just hope that the third one spends more time with the transformers and less time with the unnecessary human secondary characters. I really hope this movie has a longer cut on DVD since the last half of the movie felt like pieces had been chopped out of it to move along faster.
  8. I didn't have a problem with Soundwave not joining the battle so much as the fact that they made like 30 Decepticons and never bothered to introduce us to any of them. Ultimately, I think the first movie was better since it was much more cohesive and they actually highlighted each Transformer that was used. I think this movie suffers mostly from "OMGWEREAT2HRSALREADY?!" syndrome, where instead of editing the middle of the movie to move things along instead of dicking around, they chop out all kinds of stuff from the end so that it ends faster.
  9. This is precisely why I enjoyed the movie. In a word, it was "fun." It has some big problems with characters randomly and inexplicably appearing from nowhere, a rail gun that stops being used for no apparent reason, waaaaaay too much lame sexual humor only funny to 13 year olds discovering that boys and girls are different, and a rather anti-climatic ending, but it was fun. It is the cartoon come to life and is completely unapologetic about it. A question on the score, supposedly Jablonski worked in the original Transformers theme and "The Touch" from the movie, but I never heard either. Did anyone catch that at some point?
  10. Overrides from people with lower authority. The order not to return to Earth came from the President.
  11. I'm sorry I missed that you missed the short. Yes, you were cheated. It was a great set up for the movie and quite amusing.
  12. Not for people no, but they were not people. They were robots. One of the themes of the movie was that Wall-E and Eve and the other robots working with them expanded beyond their programming.
  13. What robots being evil? You mean the ship's computer? He wasn't evil. He was following his programming/orders.
  14. Agreed. Pixar rarely disappoints. I enjoyed it though I liked Wall-E more. It is impressive how well they can create characters to which the viewer develops an emotional attachment. I only saw it in 2D because I didnt'see the point of seeing it in 3D.
  15. Same problem Star Trek had. They left out information to the prequel comic and deleted scenes that would have easily closed plot holes.
  16. It gets worse. Skynet only exists because it went back in time to stop John Connor from existing. But John Connor exists only because Skynet went back in time to stop John Connor from existing. My problem is that I don't know where Skynet got the idea that Kyle Reese was going to time travel. I could see it being aware of John Connor by way of him constantly warring with them. Is that a function of the 3rd movie's terminator essentially creating Skynet?
  17. That doesn't explain John Connor. It walks past a gatling gun, grabs him by the throat, and rather than just crushing his puny neck, throws him against a wall. I don't demand movies always follow logic. I enjoyed the hell out of Crank and Crank 2 and neither of those movies make any sense whatsoever logically, but they're funny and more importantly they don't try to BS the viewer. They are up-front about the fact they're making a movie that is ridiculous and would never work in reality. They're also consistent in that fact whereas a Terminator or a Dark Knight will pretend to be in the "real world" one minute and then toss that convention the second it becomes inconvenient. I actually liked Terminator more than Star Trek, neither of which were the Worst Film Evah. It's just they're such generic nonsense that would be utterly forgettable without the brand name stamped on top. As for the Dark Knight, the only thing that saved that movie from mediocrity was Ledger's Joker. I think people are slowly coming around to the idea that it was a over-hyped as they watch it repeatedly and begin to see all the flaws come to light as the adrenaline rush the action produces begins to fade.
  18. Wouldn't that make it that much more likely to insta-kill him, given that its most basic programming would be to kill anything human?
  19. I came out of this movie with the same feelings I had about Star Trek. It's just another generic action SciFi movie that has only a passing resemblence to its franchise. It's enough to keep you from being bored and generally looks good, but beyond that there's just nothing there. Hell John Connor is arguably not even the main character given how much more often Marcus is on screen. It's also full of inconsistencies and silly plot holes too, where Terminators apparently choose not to kill their targets. And did we really need the Borg Queen scene? Overall it was just another "meh" movie.
  20. Technically it's not a laser sword. If it were a laser anything, it would not cut off like it does, certainly not in like 3 ft. It's actually probably a helical partical stream running along the inside of a force field and attracted back to the handle.
  21. That may have been true once. Then George Lucas beat it to death, burned the corpse, and took a dump in the ashes.
  22. Fighting over what? That Nero was in the Klingon prison? I'm not disagreeing with them. I had no idea what he was doing since the movie did not say.
  23. Unfortunately, they chose not to include that information in the movie. It's a really bad decision on the part of the writers to leave the exposition of what's going on with Nero & Future Spock almost entirely to the Countdown comic book. I had read a synopsis of the comic book, but I don't remember anyone mentioning the Klingon prison. One critical detail I think the comic book had that the movie does not the is whole bit about Vulcan not wanting to help Romulus. That at least gives some justification to all that Spock/Vulcan hate.
