The first time I saw the second one, I though wow this is pretty cool. Sure there were some real cringeworthy bits, but at the end of the day its giant robots blowing stuff up. Megan Fox is gone, which I think is going to help the third ones cause.

I'm hoping the adabpt a little bit of a "Battle L.A" approach, and not focus on the humans as much...cause while Battle LA wasn't anything fantastic, it was good to see they stuck with it from a military point of view. But I don't think that's gonna happen.

Is that why you didn't like the first one much? too much humans less transformers?

I guess I'd rather listen to an album than park myself in front a TV with a good movie for a few hours... Maybe I'll grow up eventually!
Shit I haven't seen any of those either. I've seen some of A Clockwork Orange, I was pretty young at the time and too disturbing for me back then. I'm not really into the classics much I guess, but I do love going to the cinema.

Well, Star Wars, obviously. That kinda started it for me. When I was a kid, anything with creatures was a-ok. Labyrinth, Dark Crystal, Last Starfighter, Gremlins. Recently, I liked the second Pirates, as I mentioned. Also, Hellboy 2 had some really good ones too. I prefer the animatronics to CG, but good CG is still pretty cool.

Let me clarify, nicknames are usually always thrown on a person whether they like it or not, and I have no problem with that. It's part of the fun in the first place. I don't love it by any means, but other than the douchebags who create nicknames for themselves, who does usually like their nickname? 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.

It's a pretentious piece of shit.

Naturally, I can relate to it.

That movie was absoutlely terrible, and I've never picked up any of the games.

Say no more, man, I really won't use it again. This way, others won't see it and possibly use it. Sorry, literally had no idea you disliked it all these years.

Did you people like Prince of Persia?

Strangely, I found the LotR trilogy to be a little disappointing as far as creatures go. Some of them were awesome, but some of the orcs and shit just looked lame. And the Giant spider? yawn
