The massive hard drive will allow you to "own" HD movies you download off of Sony's new video delivery service.  You do have the option of deleting a film after you download it to make space and can download it again at any time for free, but if you don't want to go through that hassle you can just let it sit there.  But really, even 80-Gigs is insufficient for more than a couple movies.

There are also quite a few games that load a bunch of stuff on the hard drive when you first run the game, to help with game performance.  Some of the installs are 2-5 Gigs.  So you can fit 15 games or so without having to delete anything.

Then there's people who load their iPod play lists onto their PS3 for custom in-game soundtracks... If you want 20,000 songs you'll need some space.   ;)

And I agree with you... there's never been a point yet in this generation of movie players where it's made sense to buy anything but a PS3 for Blu-ray playback.  It's future-proof.  It runs better than most stand-alone players.  It's about the same price.  And heck - you can play games on it if you want!

He was brilliant in Arrested Development.  I think that opened a lot of doors for him.

I saw Hellboy last night, and it was really fantastic.  Just heart-warming, fun, and poignant.  There were a couple over-the-top, cartoonish moments that didn't exactly work for me, and they made Jeff Tambor character a buffoon which was unfortunate.  But those few nitpicks didn't take away from a largely awesome experience.  Johann Krauss was a great addition to the team, and very well-done.

It'd be interesting if Robin were actually a 12-year-old kid instead of a 26-year-old guy pretending to be 17.

She was borderline hot in Stranger Than Fiction, in kind of a emo way.

And how do you yo-yo it back and forth like that?  Wouldn't that require a reversal in the direction of the primary rotor?  There's no indication of that happening?

Actually, that's exactly what's happening.  I noticed at the start that he began by pushing down with the rotor, then switched it to force it up.  And there were one or two other shots where I noticed the white bar around the tip of the blades reverse.

I saw Hulk and enjoyed it very much.  But I thought Iron Man was much, much better.  For one thing, Liv Tyler's performance was uneven.  There were times where she was spot-on perfect, but others when she was so bad it pulled me out of the movie.  But what I thought was lacking most was the Jekyl/Hyde aspect of Hulk.  The way the movie portrayed it, Hulk was just some involuntary reaction that sends Banner into a blind rage.  But in the books Hulk is a sentient alternate personality, always fighting Banner for control.  In the movie, Hulk seemed indifferent to Banner... Hulk just happened sometimes.  In the comics, Hulk HATES Banner... wants to destroy him and become the dominant personality... and it's only Banner's willpower that keeps him at bay.  Whenever Banner loses focus, Hulk escapes.  The Hulk is Banner's repressed rage, so repressed it became a unique entity.  In the movie it was 100% biological... Banner gets his heart rate up and his blood turns green.  That may have been true to the old TV show (which I don't remember well enough to say), but it doesn't hold true to the comics.  And I think that's what makes the comics interesting.

But I still enjoyed it very much on a popcorn level.  And Ed Norton was fantastic.
