Not current, but I just watched Drive last night and man was I pleasantly surprised at the quality of that movie. Ryan Gosling is really quite good in it, as are all the supporting actors. Highly recommended.

I must not have gotten it. I hated Drive. I nearly fell asleep watching it.

Oh dear. I'm probably going to have to order this one.


Oh, and has anyone else spotted Brienne in the recent trailers?  I'm pretty sure I spotted her in the Rainbow Guard colors, and they are REALLY playing up her ugliness!

I seem to recall an online post somewhere that showed some pictures of the characters introduced this year and Brienne was in that collection.

Dud.  Aside from a pretty screen, is there anything about New iPad that makes you go "WOW!!"?

I was an early adopter for iPad and then upgraded to iPad2.  There just isn't enough new features for me to feel like I want to upgrade again.  I don't have a baseline comparison for what the new processor speed would mean for how I use the iPad and although, I use the 3G service, I don't feel the need for extra 4G speeds when I'm not in my home wifi.  I do like the thought of the improvide display... my wife's iPhone screen looks awesome.

  Thinking about getting HBO just for season two.

That's what I did last year.  Directv offered a 3 month deal and that covered the time I needed for Game of Thrones.

I've been DVRing a few network shows that I won't commit too until the networks pick them up.  Alcatraz and the Firm are on this list.  So was Person of Interest but apparently that show is doing quite well and I'm 16 episodes behind  :o

Unrelated, I finally jumped on the Big Bang Theory bandwagon.  I've watched the first 3 seasons on DVD and the 4th is on queue.  Really enjoying that show. 

I picked up Season 1 on Blu-Ray today at Best Buy.  I went with the "Best Buy Exclusive" House of Stark packaging.   What is this special packaging you say?  It turns out to be nothing more than a cardstock sleeve around the original packaging.

I really liked that trailer. I hope they don't cut this movie too short. Give me at least 2.5 hours of superhero goodness!!!

I didn't realize this was coming out in April?!?

EDIT: the trailer I saw on YouTube was the UK trailer and it said in theatres April 26.

The Hobbit trailer (in 3D) played in front of Phantom Menace at my theatre. That was a nice bonus for going to see TPM.

I guess if I don't hear from him I may still have a basic set of 6 plus Probot available...

If he falls through, keep me in mind.

I just canceled my pre-order with NCSX for a box of 12.  I just don't think the chance to get a chase is worth the cost of buying two sets.  I'm just going to pick up a set of 6 plus the Build a Fig and be done with the wave.

If I was smart, I'd cancel my Bo12 pre-order and just scarf up a set of 6 on the cheap.

Unfortunately, you and I both know that is not going to happen ;)

*sigh* yep.

I'm putting in my vote for the two worst SW chase releases to date.  We already got a black astromech in one of the TRU boxed sets.  Very disappointed by this

I'm with you...  If I was smart, I'd cancel my Bo12 pre-order and just scarf up a set of 6 on the cheap.

Any chance this is like the Poncho Luke where the first image wasn't accurate with the shirt details co pared to the actual product?  I'm really disappointed by the blank shirt. I will NOT go out of my way to try and get one of these.
