  1. Here's a few of my all-time favorite movies, in no particular order. Die Hard Ben Hur Leathal Weapon Star Trek II: The Wraith of Khan Star Wars IV: A New Hope Spaceballs Braveheart
  2. I'm a little late on the trigger, but this is a really underrated heist film. I won't reveal the plot, since it's full of twists, just take my word for it and see this film, if it's still playing (it is in my theatre, but we have 24 screens). 9/10

    Star Wars in ASCII

    Here, I'll spare you the trouble. EDIT: Hey, the link doesn't even work! [ 02-09-2004, 12:35 AM: Message edited by: Urza ]

    New Spammer Tactics

    Wow, I can't imagine a worse person to target this sort of thing.

    What did Santa Bring you?

    I, too, got Spaceballs on DVD, among other things.

    XXX in a computer game

    Presumably, everyone playing the game is at least 17-18, and that age, pornography really isn't a big deal.

    HL2 Source Code Leaked

How much more does that cost than my trusty Zire 71?(retail 299.99)I have got to have one of those. BTW if something should happen to you who besides Bill gates and yourself would be able to access your medical info? Just find his thumb...

    Web Forum Postings

    Bah, half the people in that thread are fools. I'm surprised you still read it. At least there is someplace where mature individuals can discuss things.

    Planetary Bombardment?

    OTS weapons can be deployed to attack ground targets from orbit, but beam weapons can't. I believe there's going to be some way for ground targets to attack things in orbit, but I'm not sure about that.

    New UC shots

    Yeah, I love the new HUD. Looks a lot more contemperary. New models look good, too.

    HL2 Source Code Leaked

    Damn, God couldn't steal that source code

    HL2 Source Code Leaked

    I wouldn't at all be surprised to learn that Valve does have some kind of conspiracy regarding the source leak. I'm not terribly concered about the supposed delay, either. Gives me more time to upgrade my PC. Although the ATI+HL deal may give me the inspiration to retire that GeForce 3 I'm running now.

    GameSpy Article - Rage does not describe!

    I have questions about Battlecrusier, Morrowind, and Starfleet Command (and possibly Dungeon Seige), but the rest of the list, I whole-heardedly agree with. (especially FF7, MGS2, and B+W)
  14. Might as well post something before I lose power. Classes have already been cancelled for today, and since the IT servers are down, I can't look at my next programming project, or my mail. Kinda funny how this is almost exactly two years after that tornado...

    ISS Fleet gone?

    I'm all for a good RP thread.

    Night at the movies - Tomb Raider : The Cradle Of Life

    Some of our late night Tomb Raider shows in the big 485 auditoriums on Saturday were swapped with Bad Boys. Even in the smaller 205 auditorium, it was barely half-full. Bad Boys sold out.
  17. Khan from Star Trek II (and TOS). You just can't beat the way he says "FIRE!!!" Kefka from FF VI is a close second. Clearly one of the most insane villians I've ever seen.

    Night at the movies - Bad Boys II

    quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: quote:Originally posted by Urza: (Roger Ebert says that everyone involved with this film should owe community service),LOL!! he said that? Gotta link? And you saw it 3 times. In one day? Dear Lord, that means you spent almost 9 hrs (the movie itself is 2hrs 37mins long) in a theatre!?!?! Here's the link to Ebert's review. As for the nine hours, multiply that by $7, and you get $63 of easy money.

    Night at the movies - Bad Boys II

    It had quite a lot of dirty humor, but I still enjoyed it. (it was rated R, but I think it was borderline NC17) Top-notch action and about five truly hilarious scenes. If you're one of those sensitive types (Roger Ebert says that everyone involved with this film should owe community service), I'd definately steer clear. Otherwise, it's great fun. Saw it three times last night. 9/10

    Night at the Movies - Pirates of the Caribbean

    I've seen the credits to this film no less than thirty times.

    Must Watch When It Hits Rental

    I really can't adjudicate for myself, since I see almost every film that comes in (except those I know beforehand that I won't like), so here's some films that I think would make good rentals: Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (if you want a little light-hearted fun) Hulk 28 Days Later The Italian Job 2 Fast 2 Furious

    Night at the movies - League of.....

    Err, back to the movie. I saw it (for free, as usual), and I didn't think it was as bad as everyone made it out to be. If you can overlook the plot holes and places where it simply defies logic, it's an enjoyable summer actioner. 5/10

    Night at the Movies - T3

    quote:Originally posted by Commander Elio Jason: quote:Originally posted by Supreme Cmdr: But given his age and the time it took to go from T2 to T3, it is highly unlikely that Arnold will be in it. yeah and plus it couldn't happen in the story since nothing involves the Terminator during the war. *SPOILER* they also pretty much showed us the end of the war at the beginning of the film. with John Connor and his troops cheering and the flag there and stuff. Unless another T-101 comes back in time for some reason...

    BCM Gold @ PC Gamer (Extended Play)

    quote:Originally posted by Wolferz: It's good to see that at least one game reviewier is awake at his keyboard and doesn't have his head so far up his FPS arse that he has to open his mouth just to see daylight I recently had a discussion with a friend regarding battlecruiser, his comment was " Why would I want to micromanage my crew right down to which toenail they trim?" I told him," That's so they are at peak performance when the hostiles come knocking." He barely gave it a chance, probably due to ADD which doesn't mesh well with high learning curves. Perhaps a title change might provoke the feeble minded among us===> Braincrusher of Morronnium I've had ADD (ADHD, to be exact) for as long as I can remember. I take concerta (a hyper-concentrated version of ritalin) every morning before class for it.

    What do you do with your spare time?

    My TV is in the same room as my PC (at college, everything is in the same room), so I just fly/park my CC and watch a movie, fiddle with my latest programming project or something.
