Watto's Junk Yard / Re: How Many Of These Have YOU Seen?
« on: January 31, 2005, 03:27 PM »
Dang, I must need more hobbies, I've seen 41.

These are the ones that I haven't seen:
22. 8.6 City of God  (2002) 21,905
27. 8.5 Amélie  (2001) 55,076
31. 8.5 Sunset Blvd. (1950) 15,023
32. 8.5 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) 36,298
39. 8.4 The Pianist (2002) 27,119
40. 8.4 Paths of Glory (1957) 13,399
41. 8.4 The Third Man (1949) 17,364
49. 8.3 M (1931) 11,234
50. 8.3 Rashômon (1950) 10,703

I've been meaning to rent Eternal Sunshine, but never do for whatever reason.  I haven't seen the Pianist for the same reason Brent's never seen the ShindList.   :(

I think the rankings are pretty good (for the ones that I've seen).  I'd probably rank the SW movies a bit higher - definately ESB over Pulp Fiction, which may be a little high on the list.  I'd also rank Lawrence of Arabia much higher, it deserves to be in the top ten for sure.  

Also, I'm not too sure ALL three of the LOTR movies whould be in the top ten.  As a whole story/trilogy combined, definately, separately though some of the other movies would outrank them (Lawrence and one of the Hitchcock movies) for sure.  I'd put RotK in the top ten and leave the other 2 in the top 25 someplace.

Finally, where the heck is "Bridge on the River Kwai?"  >:(  That one should definately be in the top 50!

Emotional stuff like this "ode to an appendix" always gets to me... ye know what I mean, it hits me right in the gut.

So, this weekend I went to see "Million Dollar Baby" because of the Oscar buzz and the fact that I like Eastwood directed movies.

This movie was fantastic.  I don't really want to say anymore because I don't want to wreck it for those that may see it.

So, all I can say is that if you are on the fence on this movie, go see it.  You probably won't regret it (as long at you can handle boxing violence).

Woo.  Big month thanks to finding the Sneak Preview figures early, as well as catching up on some missing Kubricks that I "needed'.  Hopefully with all the Preview wave under my belt, Feb and March will be slow.  Just $20 for Ani's Starfighter and the occasional eBay Kubrick or two.  ;)

The 2-packs definitely look intriguing.  They almost remind me of the way McFarlane presents their Sports Picks 2-packs.  Those and the Deluxe figures look interesting to me.  I'm surprised to not see any vehicles though.  Hmmm.

On the bottom of the action figure shelves, you can just barely make out the Gunship and Anakin's Starfighter (on the shelf under the 2-packs).  Not much else for vehicles initially I guess...

Added to the iPod last night:

Fires of Freedom by Black 47

"My name is James Connelly.
I didn't come here to die,
but to fight for the rights of the working man
the small farmer too
Protect the prolateriat
from the bosses and their screws
So hold onto your rifles boys,
don't give up the dream
of a republic for the working class -
economic liberty."


Kubricks / Re: Kubricks and Minimates

I think I read that too...

I remember a March date for the X-Men set and a price tag around $40 I think.  I wil see if I can dig up the link I saw:

Here it was at KubrickWorld.  About the middle of the page...


Revenge of the Sith / Re: Basic Figure Leak: Already?
« on: January 28, 2005, 11:11 AM »
I called the Target store in question to see if they would hold the figures for me, but they were all gone.  :(

Sounds like it was just one case of Collection 2 figures that was mistakenly stocked along with the Sneak Preview waves (which they had plenty of).

Dang!  Missed them by that much!  Ah, well if they can leak once, maybe they'll leak again soon...

With the black appendages its got to be well above 200 though...

You'd have an Oreo Cookiee Stormie Brigade!

Especially if you can head swap the Black Stormie head on the other bodies...

You better get cracking on ordering about 100 more 3-packs so you have them all Colman!

Has the price been mentioned at all for this ship?  I'm guessing in the $20ish range, although $15 would be nicer.

Once again, it's in the first post of this thread!  I better copy the whole thing down again for you lazy people!   :P

For those of you who like using the DPCI trick at Target:

Post-OTC/2005 Vehicle Assortment ($19.99 each)
Assortment #: 85196
DPCI#: 087-06-1246
* Use this number to help you score the Episode 3 Sneak Preview vehicle!

Now we can all keep tabs on when Target gets in Episode 3 Sneak Preview vehicles!

$19.99 according to the Target computer... not suyre about Wal-Mart, but I'd guess in the $8-20 range for them too.

We used this stuff:

Ugh, that stuff sucks ass.

We used that and a little paper scorer (Paper Tiger) and it took FOREVER.  We only did a small bathroom, I can only imagin doing a larger room.  Redoing the wall must have been fun after that...  :P

I got your note, but chose to ignore it because it contained no new info...

Is there a Target DPCI# for the new ship floating around somewhere? It seems really odd that this isn't out there yet with the Sneak figs spewing out en masse right now.

Yeah, it's the first post of this thread!   :P

Revenge of the Sith / Re: ROTS must have figures for you?
« on: January 27, 2005, 12:24 PM »
All of them. :-[

When it comes right down to it, I'm a basic figure complete-ist, so even if it's Anakin Skywalker #4 or a sucky Action Feature Clone trooper, I've still got to have it.

Now, if they start throwing out RotS re-packs, those I can skip.  But if it's a new figure, whether I like it or not, I'll buy it.   ::)
