Next up is everyones favourite Hair color or what?

Now to the movies:
Almost every german comedy exept for the classics and for bang boom bang

1. Con air
2. Ghosts of mars (geez John what were you thinking)
3. Saving private ryan (though the starting sequence shows off  some serious filming expertise)
4. Everything else Tom Hanks played in though saving stands out
5. Remakes of classic or innovative french movies. Worst crap ever (That does NOT!! include The Thing by carpenter)

And Mcaulyculkin (won't even look that up) or what this idiots name is can sure as hell also take place when we're talking about crappy movies here

Wow, you guys are REALLY inexperienced in bad films. Hollywood films will never be anything but mediocre bad in the face of films like Zombie VS Ninja.

hmm..the FAQ said this is his first appearance, but was he mentioned before (volume 1-21) at all?

I can't recall any Moonlight Knight stuff....

No, thats Locus's first mention and appearance. What Griffith says is just pretty typical of the "oh, sure I know who you are! Your reputation is well known!" (yet the audience knows nothing) anime/manga thing. You see it a lot.

very interesting, indeed. go to hell, Worldcup!! for those two French guys!!
and I guess Walter also doesn't care about damn soccer(am I wrong?)

In america, soccer is about as popular as eating a dogs ass with syrup. Sure there are those crazy people that enjoy it, but the vast majority just stick to lazier sports like football or baseball, like me.  8)

This is a pretty popular story among my crew.

Cronus used to have this big pick up truck, and he was driving around his neighborhood and all of the sudden, a squirrel jumepd out of nowhere, so he swerved, but the squirrel jumped right into the tires. He was pissed as hell at the little thing.

So to add insult to injury, he slowly drove directly on top of the thing, tires to body, and threw the truck in nuetral.  Pumped the gas several, several times, the RPM's were soaring, and the engine was roaring. Then, he trimumphantly threw it into drive and peeled out on the squirrel, obliterating the thing. From what I remember of the story, all that was left was a red stain on the chassis of his truck.

Sick shit like you wouldn't believe.

his work is independent like every other piece of art and i like it!
the reason that i mentioned charlie chaplin here is not just about appreciation but ....
i m just pretty sure that he fits in here, no!?



I don't have a problem with you liking it, but what you said orignally was that essentially, we NEEDED to like and respect his work. I personally don't. If you do, great thats fine and dandy.  8)

I guess it was not for some special reason but somehow u guys forgot about Charlie Chaplin! :-/

he was not only one of the first or even the very first and still is one of the greatest directors in the history of film!

NO DOUBT!

My favorite car is a Subaru WRX, but that doesnt mean i have to pay homage to the guy who invented the wheel...

Probably Sean McNamara , who directed "Three Ninjas High Noon at Mega Mountain", one of the true classics of American cinema. Either him or Don Barnhart, director of "Saved By The Bell: Hawaiian Style".

Cameron wishes he could match the intensity of the moment you finally realize that Mr.Belding really is on the island with the kids! Truly a climactic turning point in teh series, and a great vehicle for success for the young actors and actresses.

Arkard (or Alucard as some think his name is, whatever floats your boat)

Sorry, but Im pretty certain its Alucard. Try spelling it backwards and see what you get. Now, try spelling Arkard backwards and well, it just doesn't really make much sense theme-wise to the series. Not as much as Alucard's does, anyway.

Quote


Alucard is also the son of Dracula in the Castelvania games, if I remember correctly.

Yeah, and he's the main charater in Symphony of the Night. There are very obvious cues to SOTN in Hellsing.  Well... the one I have in mind is mainly the end boss. Dracula's final form in SOTN is hilariously similar to Alucard's more advanced forms that he takes towards the end of Hellsing.

No, I meant that everything is overstyled, like the vampire guy in the main role. The creators have tried to make everything desperetly cool looking, and so the anime ended with no real depth or heart.

Despite what you may learn on the internet, using bitter logic, not everything has to be deep. Not everything CAN be deep, nor is it meant to be. Sometimes, style is enough.

Admittedly, in Hellsing, style was NOT enough to carry it through 13 episodes, but it would have been great as a movie or a one shot. Style alone could have carried it.

Hellsing has its high points, but the in-between points really over saturate the anime... and those are just... ugh... dont get me started.

I really loved Alucard though.

werent those said to be Gaiseric's sacrifice in order to become a God Hand, or something else? those were his people i think, the ones that he cared for the most. coulda forgotten something though  :P

The most common belief is that they were sacrificed for Void's entrance into God Hand. He released them from the reign of the evil emporer, Gaiseric.

Of cource, its all speculation.

how could it be?  if the elves are like the "good idea",

But no one says that they are. The newest information (see Griffith's Universal Proportinss' speculation) just says that there are three worlds, not really a spectrum.
Quote

Also, digressing a little, seeing as the "dragonslayer" was created by Goddo, an elf,

Are you saying Godo is an elf? Im really confused...
Quote
and Skull Knight also supposedly created by (an) elf(s)--it's logical to think that the same "elven" feeling would be felt by the feelers of those feelings ;D.  But the Skull Knight's elven "aura" could have just derived from him hanging around elves for a thousand years...(and possibly shagging a few by and by)

Could be indeed. Personally though, I would never agree to be shagged by Skully. Hes all spiky.

But now that we have those explanations about how the Holy See is responsible for the slow disappearance of legendary creatures, it's not _that_ far-fetched anymore...

Very curious indeed. I hadn't thought of this old theory in a while. There are obvious cyclical occurances in the Berserk Universe. I don't see why the merging of worlds could not have happened before, 1000 years ago, as it is happening now, around the exact time (event-wise) as that theory states.

Quote

The leader of the Elves saw that Gaiseric felt guilty for his sins, so he (she?) told him about the Elves' origins and explained him that he could expiate by being "revived" by them into a Skull Knight to destroy Void, the monster he created.

Wow, expiate. I named a certain character 'Expio' in my Gaiseric fanfic... how hilarious.  8)
Quote

Couldn't that "leader" be Flora? Puck said there were witches as well, in Elfhelm...

'Just reviving an old thread. I'm not saying I believe this explanation...

Ok, now I'm starting to worry about this theory... I really... REALLY hope Miura has a different explanation. Not because I think this is weak, just because I don't want to be totally spoiled if this is THE story.
