Well of the Souls / Re: SDCC'09 Toht, Dietrich, Ark Ghost = HOAX

I don't get the hatred toward the last movie.  It was pretty damn good considering it had been nearly a 20 year gap since the last one and Ford is now in his 60s.  

Those aren't considerations for making a movie good. Story is all important. The story was so-so. They should have made Darabont's version, it was a far superior script, and no Mutt. The first line set the whole, perfect tone. After the kids speed by the Atomic Cafe on their hot rods, camera stays on Indy, looking after them, he says "Damn kids."

Exactly. A movie is good or bad regardless of how old the star is. And Harrison Ford is too good an actor for his age to matter. The movie was not good and if Harrison Ford hadn't been wearing Indiana Jones outfit and hadn't gone by that name, I don't know I would have known it was an Indy film.

Unless the Boise St. guy said something racially derogatory Blount should be done for the season in my opinion. What a cheap shot. He could have hurt the other guy bad.

Since we're so close I thought I'd get this started up.

Go Vikings vs. Patriots Super Bowl.

edit-the combining of these two threads kind of made this post random.

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Your Collecting Budget?
« on: September 3, 2009, 01:28 PM »
I've never had a budget before. I've had different levels of what I allowed myself to buy at different times. But with so many things coming out at a time lately I really start to wonder if I shouldn't come up with a budget soon.

Finished Abyss today and it was pretty good.  I didn't realize there is going to be a 4th book, but it doesn't come out until March!

That really sucks that it is such a long wait. Especially considering how little time there was between the other three books.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Recent Clone Wars Finds/Purchases

Thanks to a friend I now have the Ambush on Vulture's Claw BP. I like it more than I expected.

Jeff- I take it by the lack of a DPCI for the Target Clone builder sets that we don't know that yet?

Thanks for posting that Jeff.  Man, that's a lot of stuff.  I'm glad I'm not trying to get all of it - it would almost be enough to just keep up with the exclusives, let alone the mainline stuff that is coming out.

I wish you hadn't posted this because it is so true and it makes me want to cry a little. :'(

Episode 1 / Re: Look what I just scored!!!

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Walmart CW Octuptarra Droid

Did anyone else hear/read any body else saying this was found?

Someone on Scum claims to have found one of the new waves at a Utah WM.

Mist Hunter
Anakin's Y-Wing
Windu's Fighter w/Ring
Rebel Transport - variant??

I realize that Hasbro's release lists are far from perfect, but the Malevolence wave was supposed to be in stores before the Mist Hunter wave. I wonder what that's all about.

I pray to God that the same thing that happened with those three CW waves doesn't happen here. That is too much money at once. DON'T DO IT HASBRO!!!!!

12" Figures / Re: Sideshow 12" Grand Admiral Thrawn
« on: August 28, 2009, 09:42 AM »
Does anybody know when this will be shipped? One of my sort of local toy stores is pretty good about getting Sideshow stuff and I may have to bite on this if they do get it.

I WANT to purchase the two new Clone Wars books that have come out but I like to pick this kind of stuff up used at "Half Priced Books". Normally I don't have a problem finding it that way. But I think no one is willing to spend $15 for a over sized paperback new to then have a copy to sell to the used place.

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: The Phantom Menace: Was it That Bad?
« on: August 27, 2009, 12:17 PM »
There was some bad acting and bad dialog. Did this particular story make for a great script for a movie? No, but to me the overall idea of setting up Anakin's fall and seeing how Palpatine duped everyone was interesting.

There is a humorous episode of the Simpsons that makes fun of all the bickering at the senate and the political aspects where an AT-AT looking being breaks through the wall and then is told to take his turn and he puts on his spectacles blah blah blah, but I think it summed up some of the points of why this movie wasn't great as a film.
