It was alright I guess. Some cool scenery, some amusing humor. But nothing especially stood out as 'amazing'. Wouldn't especially recommend it unless old dudes walking the Appalachian Trail seems appealing somehow.

I've been saying for years that Hollywood needs to tap into the goldmine that is elderly people camping.

The wife and I finished our Sopranos run (second time for me, though I didn't see them all before). Anyway, it was better than I remembered, particularly the last few seasons, which weren't as great as the first few, but also not as as obnoxious as I originally thought either (I always thought the show was dragged down by the weight of it's own expectations, but I realize that problem was largely on our/my end and I likely suffered the frustration of release schedule syndrome I've so denounced with Berserk)

I've just took on this epic re-watch as well. Mostly because I'd never watched the whole series from start to finish before, and I'd actually only caught maybe two and half seasons overall during it's initial run. I was a little too young to fully grasp everything at that time so now seems like as good a time as any to really dig in and embrace The Sopranos in it's full glory. Even more exciting is I've never seen the final season. Of course I've heard a lot about it from... well everywhere, but I'm still very much in the dark about the ending, so I'm excited to experience that.
I'm just about to finish the first season and man, I'm really appreciating the ability to binge on such high quality and classic series (like this and The Wire before it) because when I sit down and start flipping through the channels for something good to watch every night after work, there's really nothing that compares. After a few minutes it's like, fuck it. I'm turning on the hboGO and reliving the glory days. I'm already wondering what it'll be after this. Oz perhaps?

Morda and Molda are both possible of course, although I don't think any random village played a role in naming the character. Funnily enough, the spelling in Japanese is also close to that of Mulder (モルダー), from the X-Files.


That was my initial thought. Could it be an X-files reference? No shame in that.

I got my gift from Rhombaad the other day and got some awesome stuff!
An Eraserhead bluray I've been eyeing as well as some volumes of Berserk to help round out my collection. Hurray for Lynch solidarity Gobby! Thanks Rhomby, I'll probably watch the movie tonight or tomorrow! I'm really excited to see it in Criterion quality!

Now THAT'S a good gift!

We need to get you in front of a mic and count your "ya knows" :griffnotevil:

Ha touche!

Actually one thing I had a question on is when you're talking about the vision/dream Guts has of Casca. I always assumed it was obvious enough that the demon child was responsible for the whole thing in an attempt to save it's mother from a certain death, but as you guys pointed out it is very specific and prophetic. Is it curious that the demon child would even have the ability to create such a vision for Guts? Aaz also mentioned the interesting contrast between Guts' vision and Zodds vision, and that it could almost be seen as Femto taunting Guts with Casca's certain impending doom.

I'm just wondering if it's possible that there is more at work behind the whole thing. Skullknight? Femto? Something else? After all, the child, appearing with Casca's face, recites the cryptic words that turn out to be prophetic and uses the term "blind sheep".

I really enjoyed this podcast as well.  I thought the way each of you took an episode worked great too. I wouldn't mind that going forward.

P.S. Griffith, I really like your comments and I truly think you have a lot to add to each and every discussion. Having said that, you know, maybe it's my OCD or something, you know, but I do have to say that, you know, sometimes I can't help but notice how many "you know's" you throw in there, you know?  :serpico:

Seriously though, her placement in the trailer is smart. She's supremely marketable in an otherwise boy-dominated demographic like X-Men fans.

True. It's the only reason I've been able to drag my girlfriend with me to these movies.

Thank god The Hateful Eight has Channing Tatum in it, even if it's a small role. As far as she knows, he's top billing! :guts:

I'm actually still quite optimistic about this one. Sure some of the new cast members are weak, and the mega scale end of the world scenario is worn out but I remember not being impressed by Days of Future Past trailer either, and for the most part I really enjoyed that in the theater. Plus I'm so turned off by trailers at this point and this one felt like whoever made it was going by the books. The typical tried and true formula for movie-trailer making 101 that works for the average teenager, but obviously it's not going to impress any of us. So i can understand being put off for now, but I'm sure if Singer personally put the effort into making the best damn trailer he could for his movie we would get something a little better than the most generic thing ever.

I don't mind Apocalypse either. But again, I'm reserving my judgment (Bane from Dark Knight Rises anyone?). Although I will say I really hate the whole "he can control all of us" shit that's sure to be a big deal in the movie. I've always hated it when characters are controlled by others and fight each other. It seems like a lazy excuse just to get see certain powers fight against others, and when the character motivations won't allow it ... THEY"RE BEING CONTROLLED! Plus, haven't we already seen this before several times by now? Sure feels like it. And I utterly despise how Jennifer Lawrence is being shoved down our throat for no other reason than she's Jennifer Lawrence. And why is she not in her mutant form? It reeks of some contractual obligation bullshit because she doesn't like being in make-up.

So yea, even though the trailer doesn't really work, let's not forget that the trailer itself is probably unreliable and garbage. Let's just hope the movie itself isn't. And if history is any indication, DOFP wasn't all that promising at first either. I don't have to post those godawful teaser posters do I? You know which ones. The marketing for these movies have been terrible all along. I think if you enjoyed First Class or DOFP (which I did), you're in for more of the same.

Welcome to the forum! It's good to hear that you are supporting the series properly now. You can't be a true Berserk fan if you don't.

Thank you Puella so very much!  :guts:

I love all the group shots. Get to see the whole gang interacting with each other and all the personalities of everyone that has joined up with Guts on this journey. Now they are all entering the island's trials and traps together. Should be awesome.

WOW! Finally after so many years. This is a very special moment for anyone that's been reading since Puck first suggested that they travel to his home. This has been the mission since I've been reading Berserk since 2004. I really can't believe it.

Video Games / Re: The appeal of 'let's plays'
« on: November 07, 2015, 03:42:08 AM »
I guess I can understand the appeal but I don't think I could ever justify spending my time watching people I don't know play games over the internet. I tried watching one of Dark Souls once, made it 5 minutes. I tend to play all the games that I want, and with the few games that I don't play myself (usually because I don't have the platform) I'll go to a friends house and watch them play, and they do the same with me. It's actually a pretty sweet system we have and it's a lot of fun. For example, I have a buddy that watched me play through the entire Mass Effect series as if he was watching a movie. I did the same with the Uncharted games with him.

I just don't think that type of experience can be exactly replicated by Let's Plays. But I suppose it's the next closest thing.

Video Games / Re: What Are You Playing?
« on: November 03, 2015, 06:11:08 AM »
I beat the shit outta Lost Odyssey when that first came out. I think I did just about all the achievements. I really enjoyed it, although the ending was a little anticlimactic but I think that was mainly due to the game having a weak antagonist. I remember the main villain as being uninteresting and bland. Other than that I have great memories of that game.

Manga Mausoleum / Re: Guess the Vol 38 cover game
« on: October 28, 2015, 09:35:31 PM »
I think it would be cool to have an aerial cover with Garuda(s) flying around with some of our heroes on their backs. But of course, that would probably be too revealing for a cover. I'm actually hoping for something with Silat and the Tapasa because it's been so long since Silat has graced a cover and I think he deserve's some spotlight now. I also wouldn't  mind having Locus on the cover either.

Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road,

Wow haven't thought about these in forever. I don't even remember the music, but these are great games so I should revisit them.

Anyway a lot of the most memorable music in video games definitely comes from those 90's jrpg's. Along with the ones already mentioned I'll throw in my absolute favorite which is the Suikoden games. The first two especially had very large and wonderfully memorable soundtracks that are still quite good today. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qqp90Z6Bzks&list=PLE635CE311265AF7C

Wow this is truly awesome. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this Walter. I've been secretly hoping that someday somebody would do something like this because as you say, there's so much material that none of us have seen, or we've only seen partially in poor quality. So this is really great. I mean it man, seriously, thank you  :ubik:
