I admit I know most of what I know about He-Man thanks to Boomerang. Did I ever love that channel when it first came out.

I'm not as feverish about them now as I was before. I've always loved time travel and its complications, latched onto the characters, found the films to be breezy and pretty fun. So yeah, I can see where you're coming from.

I've never been a Transformers fan, grew up watching the Power Rangers. Growing up in the '90s... pop, POP!

I have also never seen anything to do with Star Wars/Trek.

Not bragging. Just forgot to mention it in my early post. Not something to brag out really.

I unfortunately watched it at normal speed.
Absolutely abhorred it. (And frankly couldn't stand Alice in Wonderland either, I suppose it would have been worth seeing in the theater just for the visual aspect, but at home on DVD complete shit)
Burton and Depp need to work separately for a while. (And HBC needs to get a divorce )

I don't mind if people I'm friends with call me that, and I feel like most everyone who posts regularly here or in Bang and Clatter can feel free to call me any damn thing they please, as I like them and have no problem with it. That said, I also appreciate not being called that from time to time. I realize my screen name is a mess, so people probably don't know what to call me regardless. If you've even made it this far into what I've written, you can feel free to call me what ever the hell you want to.

Yes, even I find it quite ironic that for some reason I'm happier with being called "Mofo" than "Scumbo".

Back to video game movies, I still can't believe anyone could have screwed up Max Payne. Seems like ANY fan of those games would have immediately told you what was awesome about the games and story, yet only about 4 minutes of any of that showed up in the movie. I'm happy to see that DOOM is being rumored as possibly being relaunched. Maybe video game movies, like comic book movies, need one great film to come out and kick the rest in the pants to show what can work.
Shit, does this mean I should change the VG thread title?

Irrelevant to the discussion at hand, but I'm playing the first Max Payne for the first time in preparation for 3. Enjoying it a fair bit, but it's surprising how quickly they seem to have aged in pretty much every regard.

Uncharted movie doesn't seem terribly promising. I've got no problem with Marky Mark cast as Nate, it's the De Niro father figure and dysfunctional treasure-hunting family thing that seems more suspicious. The only other confirmed upcoming game flick I can think of is the Heavy Rain movie, which is probably the least necessary thing possible.

Turning this into Unpopular Opinions About Movies You're Not Interested In, but I couldn't care less about The Hobbit, though I'm sure I'll be dragged along to it. Just as I will be to the new Pirates this weekend. Pray for me.

I haven't played either of the Uncharted games yet, but the whole dysfunctional treasure-hunting family angle fits exactly into David O. Russell's wheelhouse. Although DeNiro's been slumming it for close to 10 years now, I'd love to see the two work together.

Holy shit, yes. Thank you, another person who couldn't give a shit about whatever Peter Jackson puts out. Speaking of Pirates, I unknowingly offended a film school kid who loves the Pirates films/Johnny Depp at a party the other night by saying that this film looks like a cash-grab. It's been popping up in various conversations this week; I can't believe someone could be that much of a fanboy to be actually offended by that. AND HE'S IN THE FUCKING FILM SCHOOL. I love it.

Come on, it's suppose to be a dumb funny movie, nothing more, nothing less. These types of movies often follow the same type of formula when made into sequels, who cares?

Yeah LMP it's a little sad for that kid to get his panties in a twist over it, sure I defended my interest in the films, but I'm not gonna pretend it wasn't a cash grab, but as I said the entire franchise and in fact the entire Walt Disney Company is.

I've been thinking we could actually use something like this here to mirror the Unpopular Opinions thread in B&C.
