So I guess the chance of me winning the lottery is greater than the fabled Hague interview phenomenon occuring, eh?

Right now... yeah.

Excellent! I look forward to the duel.

well i'm addicted to it.  first part of the SP sucked, but the rest (once you get the lightsaber) becomes quite fun.
I like the multiplayer, its good too.

P.S  i love the "grip" force power.  just push 'em cronus and they'll let go

You cheese master! Gah! I despise grippers! We will meet, saber to saber and you will taste pure energy! Either that or Ill push you off of Bespin  8) I play on "SLARGIT!" server, as MayorMcCheese. Lets meet up sometime!

Cronus is just a whiny bitch that refuses to use the force in a MP game. Its all Im playing nowadays. One of my good friends has a server up a lot. However, the formula for MP gaming will get old pretty soon, Im already starting to feel the fun fading.

Soccer will take place and it will involve martial arts.

I dont think american's could handle that. They need to put in some rap music and call it "Bicycle Kickin, slam-dancing, gangsta, mo-fo Monks" and have it narrated by Master P. That'd sell with the kiddies.

You read comic books ??? ???
Are you insane?

Give the man a break. While surely Rob Liefield sucks a nut, its hard to say the same about Neil Gaiman.  ;)

Not ALL comics suck, just about 99% of them. Having been suffocated under the comic industry for more than 6 years and then, finally giving up, I think I can speak with authority on this subject. Quiz me 8)

BTW the Punisher mini series by Garth Ennis (Preacher) is great. I laughed my ass off.
And finally Faust #12 came out  :)

I thought Punisher died? He took his own life and was subsequently sent to "Valhalla", having died with a sword in his hand. Very cool ending for the man, I always thought.

questions #1

are you really a bio-chemist?

I work in the Anomalous Materials lab, but I am only instructed in the art of button pushing sciences so keep your flabbergastedly devious vocabulary away from me you filthy hound!

question #2

how many fingers am i holding up?

Twelvety-five.

question #3

i love you.

That reminds me of the time that Andie McDowell graced the prescence of my screen in the form of text (as I cannot view movies here in the Black Mesa Research Facilities, I must watch the code flying past my screen, and I parse it myself, interpreting code declarations and values into luscious curves and bodascious middle aged breasts!). She was in the groundbreaking comedy, Groundhog Day. It warmed my central testicular regions beyond my wildest imaginations. Giminy, she sure is a lady of high class!!

And who can forget that Bill Murray? Oh Ill never forget his riotously knee slapping performance in Space Jam! Whatever possessed him to turn his hat backwards? WACKY!

Daredevil is also filming as we speak.

If they're smart they'll base it off of Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s "Man without Fear" mini-series. That was amazing. It's the best place to start anyway...

Ive really never understood the appeal of Dr.Octopus. Hes one of the most typical villians ever. Motivated to MAKE TEH MONIES, so he uses science to make 4 extra arms.... yippe fucking kiyaee.

Although, if theyre going to make 3 movies, Id actually like them to do Venom in the third, that way we can have some character buildup in the 2nd to play out in teh third. Sure its wishful thinking... but hey im a fan.

Im not saying theyre going to follow the animated series strictly, but they can use plot elements like a meteor to substitute the Secret Wars.

One of my friends I was talking to after the movie mentioned that in the Spiderman animated series they used a meteor crashing to earth as a vessel for the symbiote. Sure its a little less cool than the Secret Wars (wait a minute... did I just say less cool than a Marvel crossover series.. oh god bless.....) but it seems one of the only feasible means.

why Venom? if they put him in this movie it would be too odd and the cg would look like crap [the cg in the movie wasn't that good but decent]. if they put him in the second then yes it would be better [along with carnage].


Why Venom? Hes the perfect villian for today's cinema. Look at the success of Silence of the Lambs, and its sequel Hannibal. People love to see villians as heroes. Venom is the Hannibal of Spidey  :P.

Carnage? Yeargh... rip off villian, no thanks. I dont want them to pull a Batman Returns and have 3000 villians as the focus of the story. That just got awkward.

Well me and Cronus and a few friends saw it tonight. Cronus loved it, but hes a HUGE spidey fan. Im a spidey purveyour and Ive dabbled in the comics for about 8 years (not recently though). I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about the series itself, so I was confident that I would be fully displeased with a Hollywood rendition of our beloved and only "wacky" superhero; especially with the label 'MARVEL' on it, screaming at you even before the title appears.

However, I came out of the theatre a little suprised. Its not a movie that will blow you out of your seat, but it does what it set out to accomplish, and just a little bit more. Its a rather typical Summer action movie, with a lean towards nerdy fans (youll see what I mean...). And the first half hour is the worst of the film, its filled with cliche's and cringingly obvious plot points. However,  the plot and the characters systematically become more enjoyable as they grow on you, and collide towards the end.

Theres a lot of controversy, or rather, was, around Blade II VS Spiderman. In my opinion? Spiderman wins hands down. However, these are two completely different films. Spidey is directed at both kids and older generations, where Blade II is purely 18-XX. That is not to say that Spiderman suffers for the leap of ditching gore and oh, I dunno... B00Bs. Spidey does it wondrously, if at times, a little juvenile. The film juggles romance, family, angst, friendship and responsibility awkwardly, but successfully. "With Great Power comes Great Responsibility" is a theme that was very well implemented in the film (I was expecting a really embarassing half ass implementation...). You will be too involved in Peter's pure strive to suceed to care about the lack of abundant mature elements, that are more accessible in movies directed at older audiences. However, I would like to see a darker Spidey film emerge from this light hearted one. We need a new "original Batman". X-Men didnt cut it...

One final issue id like to tackle is the Green Goblin. I know that Im not alone in that this seems a poor choice for an initial villian. Sure he's Spiderman's "Joker", but  the way he was portrayed in the movie, the Goblin comes off more lame than scary. The audience is hardly affraid of the Goblin, they just want Spidey to kick his ass. Venom as the villian could have captured more audience attention, and just may have had them rooting for him instead  ;D . Im sure theyll tackle that issue in a sequel...

Final words: If youre willing to take the plunge and hold on past the awkward 30-minute setup, Spiderman is worth the price of admission.
