Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Harry Potter

SPOILERS for those who don't want to know, but apparently the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly reveals the "split point" for the Deathly Hallows movies.  You can read the excerpt HERE, if you'd like to know.

Without giving away what the article says - I have to agree that it is a lot later into the book than I expected too.

I have been rereading the books in a run up to the movie.  I honestly don't remember how far along in the book this point was.  Interesting place though with how far along the article says it is.  Once I get to the book, I guess I can get a better idea of the content of movie 2.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Have You "Made the Switch" to BluRay?
« on: August 16, 2010, 03:41 PM »
Did you ever buy one Rob?  Our trusy old DVD player (circa 1999) is getting finicky so it's time for a new player and it may as well be BluRay.  I was hoping to get a Pioneer as I've had tremendous success with them over the years but it seems newer models are just rebadged models from others and maybe not so good, aside from start up speed. 

Looking for suggestions that don't include PS3. 

I purchased a Pioneer Elite back around last Christmas.  I would say there is somewhere in the neighborhood of a 15 to 30 second load time, but I've never clocked it.  I'm not sure how that would compare to other units.  The picture and sound are great and I've had no complaints with it except somehow you can turn off the continue feature (from where you stopped a disc).  Not sure how I've done that on some discs, so it is a bit of a pain.  I have to pull up the manual to see what I need to do to fix it.

Yeah, as far as the JLA goes, if they can't use all the "big guns" in one movie - I don't know if I'd be interested either.  I want the "Big 3" of Bats, Supes, and WW - as well as the Flash, Green Lantern, and hopefully characters like Aquaman and Martian Manhunter.  The "Big 7" if you will....I agree though, if there is a Batman included, it will likely be a new one.  From the sounds of things, Nolan (and likely Bale) will be done with the character once their trilogy is complete (in 2012), and then we'll probably see a reboot.

I want to see the made up for the old cartoon characters like Apache Chief and Black Vulcan.

DC is a licensing nightmare.  Too many creators and studios own too many different rights.  It's a wonder they get anything at all on TV or the big screen.  For Smallville on TV they can't show Superman's costume or even call him "Superman" because the rights are held by a different entity than owns "Clark Kent" and "Smallville."



Interesting...I always figured that the costume and name was something that they were saving until the end when Clark truly became Superman.  I guess it will just end with him being the blur in the black shirt with the logo.

12" Figures / Re: 12" Scale Yoda Hut... Holy Crap.
« on: July 21, 2010, 07:02 AM »
It does look incredible.  The exclusive Yoda is already sold out.  I had to wait list him since I had no clue he was up for order until this morning.  The exclusive is an orange snake similar to the vintage figure.

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / The Street Date Debate
« on: July 15, 2010, 07:16 AM »
Just a head's up...Entertainment Earth is also breaking street date since my wave 1 case showed up yesterday.  The assortment has two Darth Vaders instead of 2 C-3PO's as was advertised on the EE website.  Sadly, the bubble redesign on the figures prevents them from fitting into the clamshells that came with the previous waves of vintage figures.

how the heck could he get remarried if his kids never even meet the woman?

I'm not so sure he's the "marryin' kind".  ;D

Very true.  However, he is a celebrity and it seems that celebrities really don't date, they just get married in whirlwind romances and then divorce a few years later.

The whole thing is just crazy.  It is quite a gamble to think his reputation will be rehabilitated.

If anyone wants to experience a completely horrible cable company check out mediacom.  They specialize in more rural areas.  Typically the cable or internet goes out at least once a week.  Also they are the only 800 number I have ever called and received a busy signal.  Everytime you call about an outage they tell you that there is no outage in your area and that at least three people have to report one before they can come out and do anything...a bit hard to do if you live in a rural area without a lot of people.  For all the comcast haters, you would beg to have comcast over mediacom.  I have both between two different houses and comcast is head and shoulders above mediacom.

Wow, Tiger sure is paranoid.  He is spending 3/4 of a billion dollars to make sure his reputation is not ruined again.  What if it never recovers?  Plus, he has given up physical custody of the kids...not even joint custody.  Also, he can't have any girlfriends around the kids.  That is ok up to a point, but how the heck could he get remarried if his kids never even meet the woman?  No amount of PR will erase Tiger's image as a womanizer...he might as well as let Elin write a book...it does not seem to be something that she would want to do anyways.

Quite lame...especially with all the "women" asking how she fights in the old costume, etc.  I sure bet that "women" are the ones buying up comic books.

Just be aware that this is another one of those snuck out in the middle of the night orders.  The website says it comes out with tomorrows newsletter, which typically comes out between 10 PM and midnight EST.  I can't remember the last time the newsletter actually made it to either my inbox or spam folder.  If it sells out quick, I will probably have to wait list this one.  I'm not sure if there is an exclusive version or not.

The ref made piss poor calls the entire match...the disallowed goal was just the height of his crappy officiating.

Love the choice of character.  I'm sure it will be nicer than the KB exclusive from years ago.
