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.

IGN gives MGS4 straight 10s.

Quote
Is it possible to give a game an 11? If so, this would be the game that would merit that score. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is a title that exceeds all of the hype that was attached to the title.

Quote
Not only does it sum up the full franchise of Metal Gear, its depth and its complexity, coupled with its technical prowess, make it one of the best games of the year and, indeed, one of the best games ever made.

Quote
This game is emotional, powerful, fun, beautiful, deep, engaging, and just about every other positive adjective you could assign it. Metal Gear Solid 4 pulls you in and doesn't let you go until the final, final credits roll.

Oh yeah... it'll probably be a while before I get the chance to play this, so please NO SPOILERS!!!

The plot was surprisingly similar through most of what I read.
