No I'm 20 minutes into the last episode. Are you thinking this list is premature?

VitamanMan8 at 03:58 PM Feb 12

It seems premature, since Claire was pretty much only a good character in the first season. Desmond is my favorite by far, followed by Charlie and Sawyer.

Odd things I watched as a child

1. Blondie films (yes the 1940s series based on the comic strip. AMC ran a marathon one weekend and I watched at least half of them)
2. Judy Garland + Mickey Rooney films (Also from an AMC marathon)
3. Jerry Lewis films (I guess these are at a kid's comedy level, but nobody else I knew watched them)
4. I Love Lucy
5. The Munsters
6. I Dream of Jeannie (One of my early screen crushes)
7. Three's Company (As you can tell, I had a Nick at Night phase)
8. The Poseidon Adventure (I loved, loved this movie. I once got up at 4 am to turn on the vcr and tape it.)
9. The Twilight Zone (An occasional weekend tradition with my dad)
10. TV Specials, rental tapes about UFOs, Bigfoot and ghosts. Was (and still am to a degree) fascinated by the supernatural.

Actors/Actress' that annoy me for no reason

1. Ed Harris - I like movies he's been in, but there's something non-convincing about him.
2. William Hurt - Same as above.
3. Bill Paxton - I've never heard him deliver a line that didn't make me groan. Titanic was bearable, but Aliens.......I'm sorry that's a wretched performance.
4. Channing Tatum - Actually there is a reason for him. I think we can all agree.
5. Denzel Washington - I didn't start off disliking him. And it's not like I'll avoid a movie starring him, but he is almost the same character in every single movie. Especially if it involves explosions. I mean, Training Day was pretty good.
6. Sandra Bullock - Speed, Demolition Man and Crash. Only movies I can stomach.
7. Julia Roberts - Maybe because I associate her with formulaic rom-com garbage.
8. John Lithgow - He just comes off as hammy.
9. Ryan Reynolds - I generally try not to dislike actors who stick to a certain "style" or delivery. Because I can maybe in a distant future, see him handling a dramatic role without having a snarky joke thrown in every third line.
10. Kevin James - I refuse to even give him a chance. I'm not a bullheaded, judgemental person by nature, but seeing his face makes all the good things in life go away.
VitamanMan8 at 11:30 PM Dec 19

Night G0ddess at 03:52 PM Dec 20

I can agree with all of them - even though I like #5 and 9, I do understand why you dislike them. I think Jason Bateman is my number 1 though!!!! No matter how good the movie is that he plays in, and how good he acts - I can't stand him!!!!!!!

Yeah Ryan Reynolds, I wanna smash his face in.

Rankin-Bass Christmas Specials in Order.

1. Rudolph - The original. The only one I own on dvd (sadly) so I make sure it gets the annual spin.
2. The Life & Adventures of Santa Claus - This has a fantasy edge to it, as the source book was penned by L. Frank Baum. It's a shame I can only watch it one month out of the year.
3. The Little Drummer Boy - Such a sad story. The animation is kind of a low point, but it's a shorty.
4. The Year Without Santa Claus - The one with the Heat Miser and Snow Miser
5. Jack Frost - This actually could be at the #2 spot. But I've seen it so many times, which doesn't make sense. But I try to record it every year and end up watching it twice.
6. Frosty the Snowman - God, who didn't watch this at least 3 times the week before holiday break in school? I haven't seen it since I graduated in 2003.
7. Rudolph's Shiny New Year - Another weird one. I remember renting it during the summer a few times when I was a lad. Couldn't wait.
8. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - The origin of Santa in musical form.
9. Pinocchio's Christmas - I don't know how frequently this airs. I vaguely remember it.
10. Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July - Probably the most depressing of the bunch. Something about it is just...un-Christmasy.

1. The Mars Volta (No opening act. Played for 2.5 hours with no breaks.)
2. The White Stripes / Brendan Benson (Detroit. At the Masonic Temple which I read is haunted...supposedly)
3. Smashing Pumpkins / Garbage (First and best concert. Mellon Collie tour)
4. Prince (Played every instrument. Acoustic mini-set and 2 extended jams)
5. Weezer / Foo Fighters (Two of my 90s heroes in one night. Stood up in the balcony the entire show)
6. KISS (Seen them twice, but the Psycho Circus tour was the better. Still original lineup)
7. Yes (35th Anniversary tour. Not the best setlist, but the experience was worth it.)
8. Motion City Soundtrack (Seen them at least 4 times. Energetic and fun. I recommend their first 2 records.)
9. Incubus / Phantom Planet (Not my favorite band but they put on a great show. Also saw them with Sparta opening. So I've almost seen At the Drive-In)
10. Secret Machines (Played at a smaller venue and there was maybe 20 people. Stood so close I could touch the drum set. Fantastic live group.)
11. Coheed and Cambria / Dillinger Escape Plan (The original drummer was gone by then and the bassist was MIA. But still rocked.)
12. Minus the Bear / Thursday (Went in a Thursday fan, cam out a MTB fan. If you like clean prog guitar tones and slick beats, I recommend them.)
13. Hellogoodbye (One of the most fun bands to watch. Seen them at least 3 times.)
14. Jeff Beck (Nothing better than a free show. But his skills made me want to practice guitar again.)

Random/Dorky/Embarrassing Facts About Me

1. I like the Star Wars prequels
2. I've never seen the Godfather
3. I have 4 concrete re-occuring dreams. One involves zombies. Another involves riding lots of elevators.
4. My first car was a '67 Plymouth mega boat that got 8mpg and had a broken fuel guage. I ran out of gas a lot.
5. I've seen all the Toy Story movies in theaters
6. Along with my brother and a good friend, I spent nearly half a summer smashing GI Joes with heavy objects and filming it.
7. I raced BMX for 3 years and made it to state finals each year.
8. I have scars on both of my wrists. But not because I hate my life. One was an accident as a child and the other is a Harry Potter-ish scar from a cyst removal. Neither charismatic or manly.
9. I still own about 30 Goosebumps first printings.
10. I used to wish Neverland was a real place. But after a while, the wish almost came true in my mind. So I would look at the stars at night and try to find which one was it.

an assortment of stuff i dislike in no particular order

1. Getting cut-off on the road by someone who is makes a turn les than a 1/4 mile after. Really!? Can't wait another 6 seconds?
2. Flies in my house. Get with the program, bugs. You're not cool or interesting. Get out of my face.
3. Feeling like a grown up when I go to the mall. I used to be hip. I still own chuck taylors.
4. Film/music snobbery.
5. Assholes that drive unnecessary SUVs. A bigger car doesn't make you better at driving...or parking.
6. Concession stand theater prices. I can't afford to go out much. Don't make me regret giving my business.
7. Rude restaurant waitstaff. 15% tip would be reasonable...if they deserve it. All I ask for is a couple refills, a smile (fake or not, don't care) and some knowledge of the menu.
8. Forum trolls.
9. Hardcore collectors. Of anything. You may be the coolest dude you know, but you're making it a bitch for casual appreciators of a certain hobby.
10. Shitty talent getting recognized on youtube. Money doesn't equal natural talent ot taste.

Some of these oversized SUVs are so damn obnoxious! Anyway, rant aside, I hear ya! And don't even get me started on #10!! haha

Favorite Toys from My Childhood

1. TMNT figures : Including the Party Van and various small vehicles. Just thinking about pulling the weapons from that plastic card gets me teary eyed.
2. Ghostbusters : Yea, I had the main line of figures & Ecto 1, but my pride and joy was the proton pack/trapper/jumpsuit combo.
3. Batman : My dad's Bat obsession meant I had every plastic incarnation of the caped crusader as well as about 3 Batmobiles.
4. G.I Joe : Honestly, I didn't own as many (about 10-11) but I loved the articulation and mythology of the characters.
5. Nintendo Entertainment System : Even after upgrading to the SNES, we still played this.
6. Star Wars Power of the Force : So these came out when I was in middle school, but that didn't stop me from going batshit over them.
7. Muppet Babies Casio keyboard : It was most definitely a real thing. And I want it back.$(KGrHqMOKjME3vmc3)ZGBOB-(kW58Q~~_35.JPG

4. Theresa Tilly : Shelly (She looked a bit older than she probably was in the film, but she's the most attractove of the first "ladies")
5. Betsy Baker : Linda (Seems like a bit of a prude. But she genuinely appreciated the wretched, bargain bin necklace Ash so lovingly gave her)
6. Ellen Sandweiss : Cheryl (I used to think she was the hottest, because I got to see a nip. But tastes change. I saw her at Chicago Comic-Con and she is still a handsome woman.)

My Evil Dead remake cast (In no way do I endorse a remake)

2. Scott - Chris Pratt (He looks exactly like the dude from the original!!! It's weird.)
3. Cheryl - Maggie Gyllenhaal (Supposed to be Ash's sister in the film...why not reunite the wonder twins. Worked for Donnie Darko)
4. Linda - Kelli Garner (Because she seems so sweet it would be tragic when she turned. Plus her eyes are really big and that might help the make-up work)
5. Shelly - Kaley Cuoco (She's hot. And hasn't done a horror film yet, right?)

I actually called into the AITH podcast and remarked how that movie's probably more officially categorized as a 'psychological drama'. Nevertheless, there's plenty of horror in it to me, and I'd say the scariest film I've ever seen(by far). If it inspired the SH games, which produced an SH movie that people consider horror, how could it not?

By that token, I don't even see the SH movie as 'real' horror to me, it came off more like a dark gothic fantasy tale. Gore =/= Horror.

Use HTML tags for (b)bold(/b), (i)italics(/i) and (u)underline(/u).

Just replace the ( ) with < >.

nerd85 at 10:23 PM Oct 20

But the game series is classified as survival horror regardless of plot. It's imagery and subject matter (supernatural, religious cults, death) are typical "horror" devices. In the same way E.A. Poe stories are considered "horror" despite not actually being scary, but atmospheric, gothic and also supernatural in some cases.

I won't really argue with Jacob's Ladder I guess. It'll sure scare the pants off 99% of any slasher flick in the past 10 years.

YoshioKun13 at 04:30 AM Oct 21

Oh the GAMES are definitely horror! They're genius horror. it's the movie "adaptation", that's not! In my eyes at least. That's why it's a huge fucking fail, it replaced all the intriguing story ideas and disturbing horror quality of those games with a whacky puritan Christian cult that was 1-dimensional, hokey and quite laughable. They dumbed down Alessa to that of a stereotypically 'creepy kid' role who's simply out for revenge. Because that's what the mainstream US audience 'gets'. In the game she just wanted to be left alone, all she cared about was to be loved by her mother.

Granted SH1's story is very confounding and ambiguous, would be very difficult to translate 100% faithfully on screen. But the whole sub-plot with the Doctor, the nurse and her drug addiction, that's pretty abhorrent IMO to completely throw out.

Agreed on JACOB's LADDER, fer sure. :)

@randychico- you HAVE to see Legend if you consider yourself and 80s cinema enthusiast. It's on blu ray. As for Purple Rain...that really falls into the "how much of a Prince fan am I" category.

Movies I have to watch every october

1. Nightmare Before Christmas (and last year it was a triple feature with Frankenweenie & Corpse Bride)
2. George A Romero's "Dead Trilogy" (my trilogy includes the NotLD remake and Land if i'm in the mood)
3. Monster House
4. Evil Dead 1&2 (AoD can easilly be squeezed in, but I've seen it a LOT and my dvd is the basic, embarassing edition)
5. Tower of Terror (starring Kirsten Dunst. For some reason I catch it every year on TV and now it's a strange tradition)
6. Dead Alive aka Braindead
7. Any of the Indy films (and I've already watched Raiders)

September in movies

1. The Orphanage - Smartly written and executed, but a little boring and stale. 2.5/5
2. Paul - Not as classic as Shaun or Fuzz, but a good cast. 3/5
3. Your Highness - Dumb. But dumb-funny. And if there's another midievil fantasy with Zooey and Natalie starring, please let me know. 2.5/5
4. Transformers 3 - Aweful. The girl isn't that attractive to spend 20 minutes drooling over her. The plot was more drawn out than it needed to be and the action (when it decided to make an appearance) wasn't clever or exciting. 1/5
5. Evangelion 1.0 - I've seen the series at least 4 times and I was a little confused. The CGI stuck out a little more than I like, but it looked great nonetheless. 4/5
6. Evangelion 2.0 - More of the same. But I won't complain. 4/5
7. Insidious - Interesting and clever. Great potential for a TV show, but the villain was dissapointing and looked like a member of Mudvayne. 3/5
8. Masters of the Universe - 80s cult classic? Or still just a sorry excuse for a deserving franchise? 2/5
9. Rescue Dawn - One of the best Vietnam war movies I've ever seen. Brutal but hopeful. 4/5
10. Bridesmaids - Not only for girls....okay mostly for girls. 4/5

The talent of Harry Potter

1. Gary Oldman - It's a tragedy how short his role is, although the impact is huge.
2. Alan Rickman - Funny how Snape turned into one of my favorite characters. He's had to live through some painful stuff.
3. Ralph Fiennes - Voldemort could have been little more than a snakey, boring villain. He deosn't even have all that much presence until the last few films.
4. Michael Gambon - The first Dumbledore (the late Richard Harris) was likable, but basically and old dude. Not much to grasp onto as a character. Dumbledore 2.0 is a mysterious and sometimes frightening man.
5. Jason Isaacs - Only a class act could pull of Lucius Malfoy and not make him even a little bit charming.
6. Maggie Smith - She was in Clash of the Titans. And that makes her cooler than anyone else on the list (save Gary was he in Clash of the Titans?? Nope)
7. Warwick Davis - Such an underated character actor. Not only does he play 2 characters in the series, he played Willow. Fuckin Willow.
8. Brendan Gleeson - Hands down, the most badass professor of Hogwarts, even if it was only one year, and it wasn't really him.
9. Rupert Grint - The kids get canned for their lack of talent. Certainly Harry and Hermione had some big shoes to fill and they slowly grew into them. But Rupert has always been pitch perfect. Even when his character was reduced to stupid faces and scowling.
10. Alphonso Cuaron - His dramatic vision so contrasted with the previous films, the rest of the saga had to copy his style. I know, it was heading that way and he probably didn't have as much creativity put into it, but nobody argues that he wasn't important.

Zachary Gordon does have that beast boy look haha, great choice

I think this is a pretty solid list. Donald Glover seems fitting still, although it is TEEN Titans, Cyborg just seems older than the rest of the bunch.

Soundtracks I've enjoyed

1. Star Wars - I used to listen to a copy I taped from the library's CD. My first listening to classical voluntarilly.
2. Fellowship of the Ring - The main theme is a modern masterpiece. I picked up a copy for $1 and it works great to test speaker clarity or just cleaning around the house.
3. Tron Legacy - Even if this was only a Daft Punk album, I'd still dig it. Anything that can make a routine car ride feel epic.
4. Heroes - Again, picked it up for $1 at Best Buy (I know, right). Decent tunes by good bands.
5. Batman - My dad's Batman collection was recently bestowed upon me and there's generally a couple good tracks off them. Plus I have the first one on vinyl now.
6. Godzilla - Yes the beloved Matthew Broderick classic. For whatever year this is from, the songs rocked. Foo Fighters, Silverchair, RATM, Ben Folds and that P Diddy song that sampled Kashmir.
7. The Matrix - Who wasn't obsessed with the Matrix at some point?
8. There Will Be Blood - Great stuff by Jonny Greenwood. The closest we'll get to hearing Radiohead score a film
9. Norwegian Wood - Another Greenwood work. HAven't heard the whole thing through, but it's got 3 songs by Can, so...good enough.
10. Tron (original) - Wendy Carlos is brilliant.

1. Shannara - High fantasy, humor, plenty of material to take from.
2. New Avengers (computer animation) - With Wolvie, Luke Cage, Spidey, Spider Woman, Buckey-Cap.
3. Mickey Mouse's Magical Quest - He's not going away anytime soon, might as well make it digestable for grown ups
4. Samurai Jack - Live Action. That is all.
5. Return to the Labyrinth - Animated, CGI, puppetry...don't care.
6. Aliens - Not Syfy level, but it could be done on a modest budget.
7. The White Stripes - Only half serious. I always thought a short animated series with them could be fun. The Beatles meets Scooby Doo with songs and trippy art.
8. White Dwarf - Anybody recall the pilot? Cool idea, totally achievable today.

There was talk of a live action Samurai Jack some years back,I hope it's still in development I would kill to see that

YoshioKun13 at 01:58 AM Jun 27

I would actually like to see(no surprise here)...a SILENT HILL TV series. It could be a little like THE TWILIGHT ZONE, different rotating stories each week where the only thing that stays constant would be the setting - the town of SILENT HILL.

Until that ever happens, closest thing we've got to it is LOST.

Silent hill would be awesome. Hour-length episodes, lots of fog, great music. I'm sold.

Last 10 Movies I've Seen

1. Green Lantern 2/5 - The critics were right. Boring, meandering, too much, not enough. Ryan Reynold's least annoying perforance, though.
2. G.I. Samurai 3/5 - First movie in a Sonny Chiba 4-pack I got for cheap. I recommend it is the weirdest movie I've seen in a while. A group of modern day (1978) Japanese soliders fall into a time slip and end up in feudal times.
3. Chloe 2.5/5 - It's not a bad movie, especially if you want to see Julianne Moore in a new light. But it didn't really have anything to say. Could've went edgier IMO.
4. Green Lantern Emerald Knight 2.5/5 - I would bet GL fans can get more out of this one. Too many characters that aren't Hal Jordan for me. Still better than the movie.
5. Green Lantern First Flight 3.5/5 - Wow, I was really impressed with this release. A solid, fresh (to me) origin story and a tight plot. This is the Lantern movie to buy. Some good special features too.
6. The Sorcerer's Apprentice 1.5/5 - We were bored one night. It held my attention...but just barely.
7. My Neighbor Totoro 4/5 - Never gets old
8. Spirited Away 4.5/5 - The Alice in Wonderland of it's era. That's not an overstatement.
9. Follow That Bird 3/5 - I bought this for my daughter and I have never seen it before. I didn't even know a Sesame Street movie existed and it has all the charm of a Muppet movie plus the spirit of the show.
10. Moulin Rouge 1/5 - I can not get into this film. The visual style and effects are distracting and the plot is sloppy. The cast is great, the songs are great, but it's such a mess. An acquired taste I suppose.
goNADSgo69 at 12:01 PM Jun 21

Cool list but I am going to have to disagree with 10 =P I Love Moulin Rouge; it's a 10/10 movie for me ^_^

But good choices on 7 and 8! Miyazaki I think is THE best animation director working today. His films are fun, entertaining, original, colorful, and they pack an emotional punch!

9. Cameos - Stan Lee (obvious), Andrew Garfield as Spidey (staying optimistic about him)
10. Origin Story? - Nope
nerd85 at 08:06 PM Jun 16

@Psycho - I like it...but I always think of DeVito as Penguin. Or his character on It's Always Sunny in Philadelpiha.

@cerealkiller - Nathan Fillion has too much confidence. I think he's great and all, but Ben Grimm is a tragic character to me.

@Nite Owl - Not bad. Actually, his calm demeanor is perfect and he could snap at any moment. I like that.

cerealkiller182 at 08:33 PM Jun 16

@nerd Hes tragic because he loses his confidence. Fillion plays insecure on Castle all the time.

nerd85 at 09:24 PM Jun 16

Insecure, but always with a swagger. He's a big nerd and that's good enough for me.

MY DREAM BATMAN MOVIE (Recycling this list)

1. TITLE - Black & Grey
3. BATMAN / BRUCE WAYNE - Eric Dane (I'm gonna regret this choice, but he might work)
4. ALFRED - Bill Nighy
6. ROBIN? - Freddie Highmore (Robin needs to be done with sincerity. Or Joshua Jackson if we're doing an 'almost Nightwing' version)
7. VILLAIN(s) - Deadshot & Killer Croc
8. EQUIPMENT - There's so much he's used. "Detective Mode" from Arkham Asylum is nifty.
9. HAS TO HAVE: Reinforced suit. If anything, he needs to protect his body.
10. BATGIRL? - Hmm. Maybe a hint at Batgirl, if Barbera Gordon appears for a notable scene.
11. WRITERS - Jeph Loeb & Paul Dini

Based on a list by Psycho-Pirate-99

cerealkiller182 at 09:31 AM Jun 16

I could get on board with Cranston as Gordon

WalkAway at 01:48 PM Jun 16

Eric certainly has the jawline for Batman.
Can I be Batgirl!?!

nerd85 at 01:55 PM Jun 16

My consideration for you as Batgirl has 2 requirements...

1.How do you look in purple?
2.Do you know karate?

Magic Rings (In Honor of Green Lantern)

1. The Sorcerer's Apprentice -Just watched this last night. Basically Jay Baruchel's character (can't even remember it) gets Merlin's ring and can do magic with it.
2. Lord of the Rings - "The One Ring" C'mon...pretty much goes without saying.
3. Green Lantern's Power Ring - In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight Let those who worship evil's might, Beware my power... Green Lantern's light!
4. The Planeteers's Elemental Rings - Each has their benefits, but to get anything done you would 4 other buddies.
5. Spaceballs "Schwartz" Ring - Apparently you can find these in Cracker Jack boxes...I haven't had any luck.
6. Voldemort's Horcrux Ring - Only an evil genius could split his soul into physical objects.
7. Tom & Jerry's Magic Ring - Having seen the whole movie. But the magic is basic and Jerry has to wear it on his head because of the size...what kind of hijinks will those two get into?
8. Le Morte Darthur - (I had to google Magic Ring to fill out the rest of these.) Sir Gareth is given a ring by a damsel who lives in Avalon that will render him invulnerable to losing any blood at a tournament. And that is pretty bitchin.
9. Draupnir worn by the Norse god Odin - Its only reported function was to create more gold arm bands every nine days. Basically, Odin is Mr. T's God of choice.
10. 64 Magic Rings In the Legend of Zelda's Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons. That's a lot of damn rings. Are these games any good?

Summer Playlist 2011 Edition

1. The Forms - Red Gun (Sort of a chill song. Nice for cruising around in the afternoon)
2. The Mint Chicks - Hot on Your Heels (It's not even Summer yet and I CAN NOT STOP listening to this album. It's a few years old already, but listen to it immediately)
3. Neon Indian - Deadbeat Summer (Last year's favorite of mine)
4. The Format - Time Bomb (This is the best, and last record by this band that could've had some big hits.)
5. Tame Impala - Lucidity (I've mentioned this band a few months back...but I'm still listening to it)
6. Rooney - Shakin' (This was the ONLY thing I listened to the summer I graduated. Just installed a sweet stereo in my Dodge Shadow. Speedy little car...I miss it)
7. The Beatles - Getting Better (Obligatory Beatles track. Sgt Pepper will find its way into my car eventually)
8. Beach Boys - Help Me Rhonda (I'm kinda late getting into Pet Sounds, which is fantastic. But this is one of my favorite early singles)
9. The Dream - Yamaha (I don't like anything else by him, but this Prince-inspired track is awesome)
10. Prince - Bambi (It's gonna be a Prince-y season. If anyone's ever doubted his riff capabilities, you gotta hear this. It's not on youtube sadly)
11. Split Enz - I Got You (If you don't recognize the name, you may have heard the song long ago)
12. Jellyfish - New Mistake (I JUST found about this early 90s track from a friend. It's amazing. The guy went on to write the Teen Titans theme and a couple tracks for Puffy Ami Yumi...if that's your bag)
13. The Killers - Under The Gun (Making a Killers playlist as we speak and this B-Side is my favorite by them)
14. Kings of Leon - Mary (They haven't been great since Because of the Times. Here's a goody from their bland last effort)
15. The Little Ones - Lovers Who Uncover (Such a good song. Crystal Castles did a remix, but the original is more fun)
16. Panda Bear - Surfer's Hymn (I was a little underwhelmed with the whole album, but the first half is sweet and simple)
17. XTC - Merely A Man (Recently bought the CD at a flea market. XTC is a band that was big in the UK, but I'm sure you've heard a song or two in a movie)

Comic Book Artists I'm Digging Right Now

1. John Romita Jr. - LOVE his style. A little blocky, a little line heavy all incredibly expressive.
2. Jim Lee - Draws the best Batman I've ever seen, I grew up with his X-men.
3. Olivier Coipel - Got into Thor because of his art (2007) and thank God (or Odin)
4. Marko Djurdjevic - Picked up some of the Thor after Coipel and has probably drew on every Marvel title since.
5. Ashley Wood - Came to my attention from the Metal Gear Solid comic. The style is loose but well done. Check some stuff in Google images.
6. Frank Miller - I think his drawing is better than his writing. Similar to John Romita Jr. in some ways.
7. Alex Ross - Paints real people that just happen to be wearing costumes. Even my mom was impressed by stuff I showed her from Kingdom Come. And his vision for re-imagining iconic looks is rare.
8. Tsutomu Nihei - He's a manga guy. But he did a Wolverine mini series (2003) that was visually a breath of fresh air. Too bad he couldn't be roped in for a stab at an ongoing series.
9. Steve McNiven - Not too familiar with a lot of his work, but I'm re-reading Civil War next and his work on that was ridiculous.
10. Jack Kirby - Kinda have to include him. He's tied to Marvel comics as much as Stan Lee...maybe more. You can't escape him.
11. Leinil Yu - Throwing this in last second. New Avengers are awesome and his issues roped me in. Looking forward to Superior...when I get around to it.
Nite Owl
Nite Owl at 11:00 PM May 29

I love John Romita Jr.'s art, when I picture Spider-Man its in his style, and I love his version of The Punisher. His cartoonish style really compliments that character well I think. Frank Miller's art on the surface isn't very pretty, or showie, but it really fits his gritty writing style. When I see other illustraters on a Frank Miller book it just doesn't feel right to me, no matter how good the art is. You got a lot of greats on here, Jim Lee is phenominal, and Alex Ross is just on a whole other level. I love Steve McNiven's style too, not overly done just simple, smooth lines.

cerealkiller182 at 09:34 AM May 30

I never got the love for Romita Jr. But I dig the hell out of McNiven, Yu, Djurdjevic, and Jim Lee

nerd85 at 08:42 PM May 30

Romita Jr. got me from the first dozen-ish issues of Punisher War Zone, which was a good run if you're a casual Punisher fan.

I love finding new artists that make me love comics all over again.

What I've watched since my last time on MFC

1. Fantastic Four - A very slight edge above the first (mainly because of Silver Surfer...who should've had his own movie), but still just alright. 3.5/5
2. Memento - Surprised how decent the DVD looked. I still want the blu ray tho. It never gets old. 4/5
3. The Animatrix - One time I watched this and enjoyed every segment. Now I just skip around. The special features are good. 3/5
4. The Matrix Trilogy - Man, if there was ever a blu ray upgrade I need, it's this. I'm hoping the clarity would make it easier to digest Revolutions. 4/5
5. Kick Ass - Only my second viewing. The comics are better, and a little more...humane. 3.5/5
6. Watchmen - First time watching the blu ray. Nice. 4/5
7. Camelot - I know, it's a mini series. But it may be the best (at least most honest) depiction of Arthur I've seen. 3/5
8. Gladiator - Not as amazing as I remember. It still kicks ass, but Idk.... 3.5/5
9. Thor - I HAVE to see it again in 2D. What a great way to get the character ready for Avengers. Might be my 2nd favorite Marvel adaption. 4/5
10. Hulk VS Thor - Meh. Pretty standard (unimpressive) animation, but that's what I expected. 2/5
11. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - Not as good as the first, but way better than Prince Caspian. 3/5
12. Never Say Never - Not my pick for movie night. Didn't hate it. 2/5
randychico at 04:45 PM May 26

more humane? haha ok

I was actually very surprised by Dawn Treader and it's close to being my fave

nerd85 at 09:52 AM May 27

haha yea "humane" wasn't the right word. The characters weren't as bland. There was a better rationale...kinda.

Anime I'd Kill To See

1. Metal Gear Solid
2. Robin (No Batman involved. Tim Drake or Damian Wayne)
3. Bucky O'Hare (fuck yea.)
4. Legend of Zelda (A proper adaption)
5. Final Fantasy VII or III (26 Episode series covering the entire game.)
6. Coheed & Cambria (I read Claudio wanted Anime clips to accompany songs during shows. How kick ass would an Interstella 5555 type film be?)
7. House of Many Ways (A sequel to Howl's Moving Castle that I'd love to see from Studio Ghibli)
8. 20th Century Boys (Apparently there was a live action trilogy already, but it'll be a while before my eyes lay upon it. I can't recommend this Manga enough, it's hard to relate a genre...but cross Donnie Darko, Now & Then, and Watchmen.....I guess.)
9. BLAME! (Another Manga. Abstract, but artwork like I've never seen. There was something like an anime already produced, but it's extremely hard to find.)
10. Robocop (Who does mech-related better than the Japs?)
11. Edgar Allen Poe (An anthology of his best stories.)
12. Pandemonium (It's a semi-obscure PS1 game. The plot is loose enough to play around with and the imagery could easily be translated.)

Things I Collect

1. Vinyl LPs - My collection isn't huge. In fact it's kinda sad compared to official collectors, but I'm proud of my dingy flea market finds and bargain bin treasures. I have around 150 and the styles range from Elvis to Genesis to Zepp to Buddy Rich to Joni James to Mars Volta.
2. DVDs/Blu Rays - This is obvious to anyone on this site. For a year or so, I wouldn't leave the house without stopping in a used store or digging the $5 bin. Again, my collection isn't huge or even impressive (I'm slowly adding them to MFC) but I'm careful and a little OCD about it.
3. Books - I blame my mom's insistence on bedtime stories. I started collecting Goosebumps (still have them) and it grew on and off since then. I read fantasy, some sci-fi, fiction literature, Barnes & Noble Classics, whatever tickles my fancy.
4. Comics - I blame my dad's insistence on getting Batman comics (85-90 ish era). I have a few hundred from mostly the 90s (none of them worth much) and some 70s and 80s sprinkled in. I started getting really into Marvel just before Civil War hit and followed it for a while after but it's an expensive committed hobby.
5. Star Wars - This started with the Power of the Force figures that blew my mind. I'll pick up anything that is cheap and cool. I have some vintage stuff (probably not worth much) and some Episode I era stuff (definitely not worth much).
6. Toys - Another budding, but selective addiction. The new Vintage Collection Star Wars figs got me going (Have the first 2 waves, but that's already fizzled.) A big part of me misses my toys from youth so I'm trying to make up for them. The Tron Legacy deluxe figs are pretty cool.
7. Video Games - I'm not a "gamer". I've never played WoW or pwnd any noobs. But I'll still pick up NES, SNES and PS2 games because they are awesome.
8. Coins - This isn't something I invest time or money into, but if I find an old or foreign coin, I put it in my little bag. I have currency from about 6 different countries (bills and coins). It's dorky but since I'm listing these things out I might as well be honest.

nerd85 at 08:23 PM Apr 26

@Kitty: Records can be addicting. I bought the first few Volta releases when they came out (2005-06?) and I guess they're pretty valuable and have colored vinyl. I haven't opened any of them tho haha.

Movies I've watched recently (I don't watch NEARLY as much as I used to)

1. The Punisher (1989) - Haven't seen it since I was about 6. It's not good, but it's not aweful.
2. 127 Hours - Better than the hype led me to believe. Does that make sense? Anyway it was insanely better than Slumdog.
3. TRON (blu ray) - Got a feeling this will be on a lot of shmoe's lists. I will always love this film, but it was cooler as a weird little geek film nobody remembered.
4. Black Swan (blu ray) - So the grain was intentional.... I wasn't sure it would be as good the 2nd time, but I was so wrong. It's even more tragic and little more sexy.
5. Tron: Legacy (blu ray) - Everything I hoped it would be. The transfer is exquisite.
6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1 (blu ray) - Better with a little perspective on the fact that it's half a movie.
7. Ikiru - First time seeing it. It's a beautiful film but the transfer says otherwise.
8. The Terminator (blu ray) - I never realized how slasher film-esque the original is.
9. Robocop - I was on an 80's kick for a week. I wish the blu ray was worth buying...or the sequels.
10. Bambi (blu ray) - "They sure don't make 'em like this anymore" Amen. That's why I can't enjoy Tangled or Princess and the Frog.
11. Labyrinth - Wanted to scrutinize the Superbit disc now that I'm a cultured film aesthtician, but I found myself singing to Dance Magic and quoting Hoggle.
12. Iron Man 2 (blu ray) - Bought it blindy ($9 is not something I can pass) and I thought it was great.
13. Memories - Katsuhiro Otomo should do more movies.
14. Paprika - First viewing. I plan on seeing more Satoshi Kon immediately. Starting with Perfect Blue.

What was it about the ROBOCOP Blu ray that wasn't worth buying, transfer not so good, or do you just not care for the movie in general? I only ask because I plan on buying it.

nerd85 at 08:30 AM Apr 24

The cheapskate in me has to consult before I buy a blu ray and they said the transfer isn't great. But if it's the extended cut, I may buy it anyway. I LOVE Robocop.

------And I forgot to add The Fighter, which I thought was pretty good, great performances, but not quite the oscar film it was touted as.

Sequels that I'd Love to See Get Made

1. Superbad Express - A crossover starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Seth Rogan & James Franco.
2. Lord of the Rings - I know this would NEVER happen. But the characters are SO GOOD, I'd kill to see a mini series about the hobbits that lived on in The Shire...or Gimli & Legolas trekkin' around. There's a semi detailed timeline of post-Grey Havens events Tolkien wrote out.
3. Pulp Fiction 2
4. Willow 2
5. Freddy Got Fingered Again - Not ashamed to say I love Tom Green.
6. Hot Rod 2 - Those Lonely Island boys could get a bigger budget guaranteed.
7. Wayne's World 3
8. Evil Dead 4 - Sam Raimi could convince Bruce Campbell to do it.
9. Spaceballs 2 The Search For More Money
10. Kung Pow 2 Tongue of Fury
11. Cloverfield 2 - Why do people HATE this movie? It was clever and fun.

Radiohead Albums Ranked (Results may vary)

1. OK Computer - The first disc most fans heard for the first time and fell in love. I used to listen to Karma Police on repeat in my room.
2. Amnesiac - Nobody has this as a favorite, but I have a soft spot for it. It was the second Radiohead album I listened to all the way through. The b-side feel to it makes it more endearing.
3. The Bends - 90s classic. Bands are still ripping this album off and Radiohead is miles beyond it.
4. Kid A - Don't get me wrong, it's a fine work of art. But it's not the one I typically grab to drive around to. .
5. Hail to the Thief - I was little late getting in to them full-speed, so this was the upcoming record at the time. "There, There" came out when I graduated and it ruled the summer.
6. In Rainbows - What a relief to hear guitars again. A very solid and immaculately recorded disc. BTW has anyone heard about the In Rainbows/OK Computer playlist conspiracy? You can re-order the track lists with a cross-fade and supposedly it was planned out that way. Check it out.
7. Pablo Honey - This one gets overlooked too often. Some decent early 90s style guitar rock. If you can find the Live at Astoria DVD from this era, it's a rocker.
8. The King of Limbs - This is entirely unfair because I haven't listened to the whole disc, but what I heard was unimpressive. As if Thom Yorke is in a glitchy, techno funk and only making music on a laptop. It was cool for Eraser but Radiohead used to be innovative. IDK, time will tell.

Better Directors For Akira (U.S.) Than the Hughes Bros

1. Alfonso Cuaron - If he can handle the HP franchise and reinvent the look of Sci-Fi realism, he can do wonders.
2. Christopher Nolan - Not to throw his name in for anything, but if they want people in the theaters...kinda hard for him to fail at this point.
3. Ridley Scott - He seems to be very interested in going back to his roots.
4. David Fincher - His name was tied to Rendevous With Rama and a live action Heavy Metal. Akira could been a decent in between.
5. Joss Whedon - I've never watched Buffy, but he seems like a guy who is completely committed
6. The Wachowski's - The know Anime. They get it and they seriously need to redeem themselves as smart-action filmmakers.
7. Bryan Singer - He made the X-Men a popular film franchise when it never seemed possible. They weren't oscar-worthy films, but I think he still has potential.
8. James McTeigue - Directed V For Vendetta, First Unit Director for the Matrix trilogy and worked on Attack of the Clones. Seems like he could use a big break.
9. Duncan Jones - Moon was fantastic. Source Code looks interesting.
10. Neil Blomkamp - Maybe Akira is too big for him at this point but it would be so awesome.

Hey Cameron's a pretty big anime fan. But I guess he's got his eyes set on another property, actually for awhile now - BATTLE ANGEL ALITA.

Michael Cera Ranked

1. Superbad - This took the vulgar teen comedy to a new low. And thank God.
2. Scott Pilgrim - Holy hell, how did this get so underlooked!?
3. Juno - All hyp's an original and charming view of teen pregnancy and the circumstances it brings.
4. Nick and Nora - When I saw this in theaters, I compared it to American Graffiti for my generation. Apparantly nobody else did, but I like it.
5. Youth In Revolt - Speaking of movies that live in their own sense of reasoning....
6. Arrested Development - People will think this should be #1. I've only seen most of the first season.
7. Paper Heart - If you haven't seen this, but kinda want so. If you haven't seen it and would rather not...avoid it. I though it was cute (albeit heavily contrived) and wished it were a little longer.
8. ...
9. ...
10. Year One - There is no reason for a movie with a cast like this to suck so badly.

Directors I'll Watch Anything From

1. Kubrick - You don't even need to say his first name.
2. Kurosawa - Ditto. Although I may never actually see everything he crafted.
3. David Fincher - I've been hooked since before I realized the same guy was responsible for Seven, Fight Club and Panic Room
4. Jared Hess - I'm one of those people who saw Napoleon before everyone else. And yes, I'm one of those people who thinks Nacho Libre and Gentleman Broncos are both criminally misunderstood.
5. Darren Aronofsky - I get excited anytime his name is attached to something...even when it never comes to fruition (Robocop, Batman Year One, Wolverine 2)
6. Hayao Miyazaki - This man will make movies till he's no longer breathing. I just hope he can retire satisfied and with one more masterpiece.
7. James Cameron - My appreciation for his work went unrecognized for a long time. Even though it took Avatar to get my attention to his past.
8. John Carpenter - I really haven't seen anything past 1988, but damn if I'm not curious.
9. Peter Jackson - So Lovely Bones was a disappointment...the man has talent up the ass, and will continue to make great films in the future
10. Sam Raimi - So Drag Me to Hell was a disappointment......I refuse to think his only good work will have been Evil Dead & Spider-Man.
11. Stephen Spielberg - I am so psyched for Tintin, it's ridiculous.
12. Christopher Nolan - Goes without saying. Anybody on MFC who like action movies, will be seeing Dark Knight Rises (even though the name is stupid)
13. Quentin Tarantino - I own nearly all his films, but I wouldn't call him a favorite. He's simply a filmmaker I have to keep track of, if I want to stay in the social pipeline.
14. Guillermo Del Toro - Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy converted me.
15. Alfonso Cuaron - Children of Men and HP 3 converted me. Y Tu Mama Tambien confirmed it.
16. M. Night Shyamalan - For better or for worse. We all know it's worse tho.
17. Tim Burton - I know he's got something more creative in his brain somewhere. No more remakes please.

2011 Albums I'm Looking Forward To

1. Foo Fighters - Wasting Light (Can't be worse than the last one)
2. Radiohead - King of Limbs (Haven't listened to it yet. Kinda came outta nowhere)
3. Panda Bear - Tomboy (Withing a short year, I've become an Animal Collective convert...of the more recent stuff only.)
4. Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues (Seems like 10 years since the debut. I can't wait anymore)
5. Death Cab For Cutie - Codes and Keys (I thought Narrow Stairs was fantastic, but I'll listen to anything they do)
6. Arctic Monkeys - Suck It and See (I haven't been keeping track of them since the debut, but with a title like that.....)
7. Blink 182 - TBA (Even though the self titled release was a perfect farewell, I'm curious as to how they can be relevant again)
8. Queens of the Stone Age - TBA (You can almost count on anything they do will turn your brain into shit)
9. YES - Fly From Here (I'd like to hear what a YES album in this decade will sound like. Even without Jon Anderson)
10. ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead - Tao of the Dead (I guess I forgot this band is awesome. I haven't heard Century Of Self yet either)
Kitty Green

I love your list, dude!! I just got Panda Bear the other day, and I love it!!!! The more I listen to it, the more I think I'm actually liking it better than Person Pitch. Don't get me wrong, that's a great album, too, but I think PB's had more time to enhance and evolve in his music. Also, I just heard the new Foo Fighters, and it is fantastic! I think you'll enjoy it, because personally, I do think it's better than the last one. :-)

WP-DFA at 09:09 PM Apr 10

Last Foo album was solid, there were a few duds on it, but it also contained their best song to date on it - even with Wasting Light considered.

nerd85 at 08:27 AM Apr 11

@Kitty - in one year I came from hating Animal Collective to loving their past 3 outputs as well as hating Person Pitch and now I can't stop listening to it.

@WP-DFA - It's an okay disc. It's not my go-to, but the good stuff is up front and it varies from there.

@lordtyler - hehe Number 2 is amazing

Mr. Bean Episodes

1. The Curse of Mr. Bean - The park bench sandwich skit is a classic. And the theater one is a personal fav.
2. Merry Christmas Mr. Bean - Do the Brits love Christmas as much as we do? Either way, I have to watch this every year. The gift shop manger scene is brilliant.
3. Do-It-Yourself Mr. Bean - Another holiday themed installment.
4. Goodnight Mr. Bean - The first episode I remember seeing and the fact that I was supposed to be sleeping, made it even better.
5. Mr. Bean - The first episode of the series. Probably the one I've seen the most.
6. Mr. Bean Goes to Town - Anyone who's ever used an antenna TV can appreciate the first act.
7. The Return of Mr. Bean - One of the few that's hilarious start to finish.
8. Mr. Bean In Room 426 - Makes a boring and dreary English hotel stay look fun.
9. Tee Off, Mr. Bean - Makes a boring and dreary English launderette look fun...if slightly irritating.
10. Mr. Bean Rides Again - The train sequence isn't the most entertaining bits, but the following airplane scene is one of the greatest moments of the show.

Books I Read as a Lil' Nerd (inspired by

1. The Goosebumps Series - Everyone knew them, everyone checked them out from the school library, but I actually read them...most of them. I still own a 90% complete collection too.
2. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - I didn't know of the Hobbit at the time. I vaguely knew Fantasy was a genre, but this was about normal kids who had a magic closet. That's pretty bad ass.
3. Goblins in the Castle - The author some of you may know, from the "My Teacher is an Alien" series. I always grabbed this one of the shelf when we had reading time.
4. Dealing With Dragons - I used to have a collected hardcover of the trilogy. This is the only one I got through most of.
5. Heirs of the Force (Young Jedi Knights) - When Star Wars came into my life, nothing was the same. I was fortunate to be at the age when there was a massive resurgence.
6. Scarecrow of Oz - I always gravitated to the Scarecrow, before I realized how many books there were in the series.
7. Call it Courage - I must have read this thing like 3 times, but I cannot remember a shred of it. There was a boy on an island, that's about it.
8. Night of the Twisters - This scared the poop out of me. Anyone remember the made for tv movie?
9. Scary Stories To Tell In the Dark - The drawings alone give me nightmares. We used to read it to younger kids in our neighborhood to scare them. I'm glad I have a collected version of them to pass on to my children (i.e. damage them for life).
10. Comic Books - I was definitely one to judge a book by its cover. And I never discriminated against publishers, but I was a Marvel guy from an early age.

Jim Carrey Ranked

1. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - This is cheating because it's one of my favorite films...of all time.
2. Dumb and Dumber - Still hilarious. We saw it opening weekend and I laughed at the bathroom scene for 3 days.
3. Liar Liar - I think we warped the tape of this one. Many sleepovers were spent rewinding the end credit bloopers.
4. The Cable Guy - I didn't fully appreciate it until 7-8 years ago. I made up for lost time by watching it at least 39 times.
5. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective - As funny as this is to a 9 year old, it's a whole lot funnier as an adult.
6. Yes Man - I just like seeing Jim Carrey being funny. Plus Zooey.
7. The Truman Show - Clever and a little sad.
8. Man on the Moon - Raise your hand if you never heard of Andy Kaufman before this movie......nobody? Damn.
9. Bruce Almighty - So it's a little (very) corny. The Steve Carell scenes are brilliant.
10. Me, Myself & Irene - Could be higher, but it's almost funnier to talk about than to actually watch.
11. Honorable Mentions - Fun With Dick & Jane, Ace Ventura 2 (good for a dumb laugh), Horton Hears a Who, A Christmas Carol (How weird was that movie? I can't say it was good or bad, just really weird). Once Bitten (Cheesy 80s vampire flick. Worth watching if it's ever on TV)
12. Dishonorable Mentions - The Mask, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Number 23 (Wow. The definition of shit.)

Fantasy Books I'd Like to Read

1. Heritage of Shannara series - I barreled through the original trilogy in a couple weeks and haven't had the willpower to get into these. But I'm halfway into the second High Druid of Shannara book and it's pretty good.
2. Sword of Truth series - Read Wizard's First Rule. Watched first season of Seeker. I want more. But the length of these books frightens me.
3. Wheel of Time series - Started the first book. Got lost. But I got the first three for 50 cents a piece so I have no excuse.
4. Icewind Dale trilogy - I bought and read the "first" book in the Drizzt chronological series and couldn't get into it. But I scooped up these at a book sale for cheap.
5. Song of Fire and Ice - So these are very definition of high/epic fantasy in the post-Tolkien era. They also frighten me.
6. The Belgariad - Came across them on an amazon search. Sounds fun.
7. Chronicles of the Shadow War - Sequel trilogy to Willow outlined by George Lucas? I'm in if I ever find a copy.
8. Innocent Mage & Awakened Mage - I read 80% of the first one on loan from the library. Not much happened and it was slightly political, but I liked it.
9. Dune - I guess these are more Sci-Fi, but fantasy-related. I'm shamed to not have read them.
10. Dark Tower series - The first 3 had some good stuff. Sci-Fi westerns with gunslinging Jedi? Sweet. Why can't I get past the 4th book or any more for that matter? I think a trilogy would have sufficed.
WalkAway at 01:20 PM Mar 12

You should watch the 2nd season of LOTS as well!
Oh and my friend wrote this book:

Adam Sandler Ranked

1. Billy Madison - A movie nobody likes to admit to liking even a little bit. I've seen it around 58 times (that is no exaggeration.)
2. The Wedding Singer - 80's pop and Drew Barrymore at her cutest? Makes being a wedding singer look kinda fun.
3. Big Daddy - Sappy and formulaic, but a guilty pleasure nonetheless. Who knew the kid(s) would end up being tween idols?
4. Funny People - It's hard to find a balance between potty humor and serious drama...I bet. But has plenty of both. Plus Eric Bana steals all the scenes he's in.
5. Happy Gilmore - It's easy to put this back-to-back with Billy Madison, they're both in the "classic" Sandler group.
6. Punch-Drunk Love - I just watched this for a 2nd time, and it moves along quite briskly once you know what you're getting into.
7. Mr. Deeds - I have a soft spot for this one. There's really nothing redeeming about it after 2-3 times, but it's a comfort film.
8. Anger Management - Honestly I don't remember a whole lot about it, but it has Jack Nicholson. And that makes it okay.
9. Click - Oh boy, do people hate this movie. I think the concept and sci-fi esque slant give it a nice aspect to his otherwise stale comedies recently. And Henry Winkler is awesome.
10. The Waterboy - My least favorite of his early stuff. Plenty of quotable moments (I for one can never pronounce Gatorade, other than how it's used to taunt Bobby Boucher).
11. HONORABLE MENTIONS: Airheads (Saw it once years ago, it's gotta be better than Zohan), 50 First Dates (many parts of this movie are terrible, but it's a decent re-team with Drew Berrymore)
WalkAway at 10:50 PM Mar 01

The Wedding Singer is underrated, it's awesome.

Who I'd Like to See on Yo Gabba Gabba (if they ever make more episodes)

1. She & Him - Because it would be awesome.
2. Hellogoodbye - Because they deserve a bigger audience.
3. Michael Cera - Because he's hilarious.
4. Dave Chappelle - Because he's also hilarious and would bethe most unexpected thing for him to do right now.
5. Harrison Ford - Because it would be extremely uncomfortable.
6. Daft Punk - Because why the hell not? Maybe they're Plex's cousins.
7. Polysics - Because they are Japanese. And Cornelius was on there already.
8. Jim Carrey - Because I'm surprised he wasn't on there already.
9. Pee Wee Herman - Because if it wasn't for his show, there wouldn't be Yo Gabb Gabba
10. Rashida Jones - Because she's hot.
11. ---If you're wondering why I made this list, it's because I watch it at least 1-2 times a day with my daughter and it'd be nice to see something new---

Are HelloGoodbye even still together? I played a show with them probably around 6 years ago when they were pretty much first starting out. They're unbelievably funny and just have great stage presence all around.

nerd85 at 10:44 AM Feb 18

@DPlainview : Yeah they just released their 2nd album last year (took long enough) but I think only the singer remains of the line-up. I've seen them 4 times and they do put on a fun little show for the size of the venues they play. Check out their DVD if you can find a copy.

Led Zeppelin Albums Ranked

1. Houses of the Holy - The only album where each song is exactly as good as the next. Flawless production and an iconic cover to top it off.
2. Physical Graffiti - One of the best double albums of all time. It gets better the more you dig into it
3. LZ IV - Their money maker, and for good reason.
4. LZ II - Play this in your car loud. You wll feel like a boss.
5. LZ I - Helped end 60's psychedelia and brought blues-rock to the forefront (for better or worse).
6. Presence - Gets overlooked all too often, but it's a solid hard rock album. Some of Jimmy Page's most technical playing
7. The Song Remains the Same - I learned to play guitar from this album. It's a riff bible.
8. LZ III - Most heavy rock bands wish they could pull off a mostly acoustic album. It's a little sloppy, but it's got character.
9. In Through the Outdoor - According to Brock Sampson, this is when they sold out. But given a fresh mindset, it's not a bad album. It's got its own sound.
10. Coda - The closest thing to a B-Side / Outtakes album we'll ever get. And it's a shame they left out some better material than what's on here.

Shyamalan Ranked (basically chronological)

1. The Sixth Sense - One of the best horror/suspense films of the 90s (or of all time depending who you ask). Unfortunately, the end was ruined for me (I will hunt down that kid and make him eat cat shit), but I still watch it every October.
2. Unbreakable - I gotta give credit to whoever edited the trailers for this. I had no idea there was going to be superhero/comic book aspect. God I wish this were a trilogy.
3. Signs - Still at the top of his "game". I've never been in a theater with as much tension as I was seeing this. And it makes me miss good ol' not-insane Mel Gibson.
4. The Village - I will defend this film to the death. I'm baffled by anyone who claims they guessed the ending. How? There's no shread of foreshadowing to suggest it.
5. Lady in the Water - I will defend this one....only to an extent. I was way into it the first viewing. I love the modern fairy tale genre. But after a couple more viewings and hearing everybody and their brother trash goes down a few notches. BTW for anyone interested, there was a biographical book about Shymalan and his creative process for making Lady in the Water and it's quite interesting.
6. ...
7. ...
8. ...The Happening - What an upset. As a dark (and not particularly funny) comdy though, it has some redemption.
9. ...
10. ...
11. ...
12. The Last Airbender - I can't even explain how perplexingly bad this is.

Based on a list by brianandmichelle

JohnLocke2342 at 10:59 AM Feb 15

no matter what people say I loved Signs and think it really, really held up to multiple viewings. Nice list.

brianandmichelle at 12:00 PM Feb 15

My wife and I went and saw The Village on opening night. A good TEN minutes before the big reveal, she leans over and whispers it to me. When it happened, my jaw hit my lap. She said after the movie that it was only because it was Shyamalan and she had began to expect a weird twist of some kind in his movies. We both agree that even though most are not big fans of Airbender, that it was the best thing he could have done for his directing career, because he was becoming so pigeon-holed. She agrees with you on Sixth Sense being his best. I still believe that The Sixth Sense is a good movie with a great ending. But that Unbreakable is a great movie with a great ending! I wish that I knew someone who had never seen both films and had somehow never heard of the twist endings. I would love to show both films and stop them right before the ending and ask them which one they wanted to see the ending to most.

nerd85 created a LIST: almost 7 years ago

Comic Book Movies (I haven't done one yet?)

1. Batman Returns - This is the first one I remember seeing in theaters and connecting it to comic books. It's not the best in the "franchise" but it rooted the animated series.
2. X-Men 2 - On the short list of sequels better than the predecessor.
3. Spider-Man 2 - This list isn't in any order BTW. But this is one of those polished, well rounded entertaining movies I can watch anytime.
4. X-Men - It sounds weird to say this...but I'd waited most of my adolescent life for an X-Men movie. Fortunately I was old enough to appreciate it's stripped down take.
5. Spider-Man - In my opinion, this is the reason we have had any comic movies in the recent years. It made it an acessible genre.
6. Sin City - I'd never read any of the novels, though I was familiar (blame it on Wizard Magazine). And I think Robert Rodriguez will never do anything close to this again.
7. Batman Begins - I wasn't "in the know" before this movie came out. I didn't go to movie sites or read entertainment mags. So this came out of nowhere to me and made me hate everything else.
8. The Dark Knight - What can I say that hasn't been said......nothing.
9. TMNT - My childhood was formed by these guys.
10. Hellboy - Like Sin City, I hadn't read anything on the character. That should change in the future.
11. Constantine - Ditto
12. Iron Man - Completely fresh and exciting. I could watch it once a month.
13. Watchmen - Every bit as good as TDK. People complain it was too literal a translastion, or that it wasn't literal enough. All I can say is it's STILL ahead of it's time.
14. Kick Ass - The minute I finished the last issue, I started the waiting game until the movie. Not dissapointed.
15. Scott Pilgrim - Watch it Blu Ray and very loud. That is the only way.
16. ---I know I'm forgetting some. There are of course the guilty pleasures (Fantastic Four), movies I haven't watched enough to judge (Incredible Hulk, Hellboy 2, The Punisher, Wolverine)---
brianandmichelle at 10:03 PM Feb 13

Spielberg Ranked

1. Raiders of the Lost Ark - He's been trying to top this ever since.
2. Jurassic Park - Scared the shit out of me.
3. Temple of Doom / Last Crusade - I've seen these more than anything else on here. The definition of comfort movies.
4. Saving Private Ryan - My favorite WWII film...not the best, but my favorite.
5. Jaws - I can't believe I sat through this whole thing as a kid. Isn't it like 7 hours before you even see the shark?
6. E.T. - I defy anyone in my age group to say they don't like E.T. It's ingrained into my childhood movie watching experience.
7. Hook - Not a mistake, I like it better than Schindler's List. It's too heavy.
8. Schindler's List
9. A.I. - It's like a science fiction fairy tale.
10. Close Encounters of the Third Kind
11. Munich - I'm running out of things to say about these selections.
12. Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - Say what you will (and it's most likely negative), we have a new Indiana Jones film with Harrison Ford and Karen Allen.
13. Empire of the Sun
14. HONRABLE MENTIONS: Catch Me if You Can, War of the Worlds

Kubrick Ranked (results may vary over time)

1. The Shining - Impossible to stop watching after I've started.
2. 2001: A Space Odyssey - What I go to when I'm home alone. Beautiful and brilliant.
3. Clockwork Orange - A landmark for stylish Sci-Fi as well as controversy.
4. Dr. Strangelove - I first saw this in a film class, projected onto a 70" screen. Probably the best way to grasp it.
5. Eyes Wide Shut - Still don't know why he chose this over A.I. A strange & surreal end to a strange & surreal legacy.
6. Full Metal Jacket - It's almost like getting 2 films in one. Just when you can't take any more dehumanizing, brainwashing, soul crushing Marine Corp boot drops you right into the shit.
7. Barry Lyndon - The length keeps me from watching it as much as the others, but it kinda works for it. The longer I watch, the more I understand it. The compositional choices, the tone and the overall pacing are quintessential Kubrick.
8. Lolita - If ever there was a film in which the real story is not even seen, it's Lolita. The implied plot is everything and it's a wonder this ever got greenlit in the early 60s Hollywood system.
9. Paths of Glory - I can't wait to get my hands on the Criterion Blu Ray.... There's nothing spectacular about this film (save the camera work in some battle scenes) but it's tightly constructed. And the ending is the most emotional scene he ever filmed.
10. Spartacus - Not technically in the "Kubrick Collection", IMO. And it's the crime of the century that he couldn't bend it to his vision.
randychico at 11:24 AM Feb 11

Hooray for some Shinning love.. although I'm not a fan of 2001, I'd change that for Full Metal Jacket

trumper78 at 12:20 PM Feb 11

Schwarzenegger Ranked

1. Terminator 2 - This was epic growing up. It was the Gone With the Wind and Citizen Kane of robot movies I was too young to watch.
2. Last Action Hero - Yea that's right.
3. Conan the Barbarian - Still not the film Conan deserves, but a milestone of 80s barbarian / fantasy films.
4. Predator - Completely original. And still exciting.
5. Total Recall - Pure, classic Arnie.
6. The Terminator - This in the National Film Registry? Bitchin.
7. Conan the Destroyer - I know most of you can only handle 1 Conan movie, but this takes out all the pretensiousness from the first one and adds Princess Jehnna...who is a total babe.
8. Jingle All the Way - Christmas classic.
9. True Lies - Possibly as high-brow as his career went (in that it was a remake of the french film La Totale!).
10. Kindergarten Cop - One of the finest comedies of the 90s hands down...can't even argue with that.
11. HONORABLE MENTIONS : Commando, Twins, The Running Man (saw it once years ago and can't remember any of it.)

Favorite Superheroes (no order)

1. Batman - No surprise there.
2. The Punisher - A bad history in the film medium and a fad of seeing his skull on t-shirts, wallets, belt buckles, hats, hoodies and underwear hasn't changed my mind that he's a badass.
3. Captain America - America f-k yea!
4. Thor
5. Iron Man - Always reminded me of Bruce Wayne under slightly different if he was an asshole.
6. Hawkeye - I'm an Avengers fan, if you can't tell.
7. Colossus - The only power I wish I had as a kid.
8. Silver Surfer
9. Wolverine - Everyone's favorite hard ass. The power we all wish we had.
10. Union Jack - Britain has heroes too. I recommend his mini series from a few years back.
11. Dr. Manhattan - A tragic hero if there ever was.

Based on a list by Carlos_Spicyweiner

randychico at 03:26 PM Feb 02

What is Colossus' power exactly? I like how Dr Manhattan is like even more powerful than superman but, in fact he could be the most tragic of heroes

nerd85 at 08:21 AM Feb 03

I love Spider Man...but for some reason I wouldn't consider him a favorite. No I take that back, he's awesome. I think I overlooked him because of his popularity...if that makes sense.

And Colossus' skin transforms into metal. Pus he's like 6'8" or something.

Remakes I want to see.

1. The Rocketeer - Indiana Jones meets Iron Man......sorta. The costume is SO awesome, I just wish it wouldn't go to waste.
2. The Phantom - I love the Phantom, because he can justifiably exist in any decade. I admit the Billy Zane version is dumb fun, but how about one that isn't a guilty pleasure?
3. Shattered - Semi-obscure Wolfgang Peterson film, that is played out like a made for TV Vanilla Sky. Maybe that's not accurate, I haven't seen it in a while. But it's interesting enough to warrant a better adaption.
4. The Neverending Story - Not-so-obscure Wolfgang Peterson film that although a childhood classic, takes a huge crap on the source material.
5. The Last Airbender - Need I say more?
6. Little Nemo In Slumberland - The animated movie is great for nostalgic reasons, but we finally have the technology to do a GREAT live action/CGI epic. If Tintin can get made, Nemo should get a chance.
7. Dungeons & Dragons - Loved the show. Never played the game. But I smell a more promising franchise without Marlon Wayans.
8. The Punisher - How hard can it be to adapt this? He's basically a poor Batman with guns. Revenge movies are almost always satisfying, and comic writers have been keeping the character going for a while. Just pick a story line and film it.
9. The Hobbit - Wait, what....there's an adaption in the works? Could have fooled me.
10. Hellraiser - Classics should not be touched. But this is begging to redeem itself after a slew of shitty sequels. I'd kill for an Aronofsky-esque take on the original film. (BTW has anyone read the story it's based on? Worth a read?)
randychico at 12:42 PM Jan 31

Great list, many people are afraid of remakes but I am those who think that sometimes they can work (if they don't F it up of course), I know many people would invoke a storm about #4 and personally I wasn't really a fan and I've never read the books so I don't care. As for the others I definitely agree. I'd love to see a new Little Nemo. Oh and Hellraiser is already getting the remake treatment, there's a picture out there of the new Pinhead

lordtyler912 at 04:22 PM Jan 31

The Neverending Story I want to see soooo bad.

Albums I wish were soundtracks to movies.

1. Alan Parsons Project - I Robot = I Robot (This was an easy one)
2. Pink Floyd - Meddle = 2001: ASO (I read Kubrick asked Floyd to contribute something to one of his films if he could have control of the song edits. Plus Echoes kinda synchs to most of it.)
3. Rush - 2112 = Logan's Run (I'll avoid my brain's leaning of Star Wars with a rock OST.)
4. Radiohead - Kid A = The Matrix (Does anyone recall a video floating around some time ago with scenes of The Matrix synched to various Radiohead tracks? It was on MTV.)
5. Led Zeppelin = Lord of the Rings (Can't pick one album, but everyone knows this would rip ass. Ralph Bakshi wanted to use them for his animated adaption.)
6. Thin Lizzy - Chinatown = Chinatown (I'm not cheating by doing the name thing. This list is harder than I anticipated.)
7. Weezer - Pinkerton = Romeo+Juliet (Same year? Idk. Could work. Think about it.)
8. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - F#A# Infinity Sign = 28 Days Later (Danny Boyle loved this album at the time and it shows.)
9. Joy Division = The Crow (The original film or the proposed reboot. A major influence on the character.)
10. Genesis = American Psycho (I know the references in the film weren't complimentary, but in my head they were. The movie needed more 80s music in general.

Jackie Chan Favorites (Too many I haven't seen)

1. Police Story - Oddly this is one of the last I've watched for the first time. Anyone who thinks Jackie isn't serious business needs to watch this.
2. Project A - My former favorite. Two scenes that stand out are the stairway scene (an influence on Matrix Reloaded?) and the bike scene. Classic.
3. Rumble in the Bronx - You never forget your first...Jackie Chan flick. An action/comedy that never stops being fun.
4. Rush Hour 2 - I'll get some shit for liking these movies. Oh well.
5. First Strike - Can't say much for the plot, at least I'm pretty sure there's supposed to be one. But the Bond-esque locales make for nice scenery.
6. Rush Hour - I'm glad Chris Tucker quit when he did, but this is always a guilty pleasure.
7. Armour of God - He almost died filming this. How badass is that?
8. Rob-B-Hood - Forget the title and stupid box art. I was pleasantly surprised.
9. Twin Dragons - What's better than Jackie Chan? Two Jackie Chans!
10. Shanghai Noon - Again, it's a guilty pleasure. No f-k's just great.
11. The Karate Kid - I didn't want to fall into the hype but it is indeed a decent movie. Jaden Smith was good and Jackie was destined to be the next Mr. Miyagi.......I mean Mr. Han.
nerd85 at 01:32 PM Jan 20

^I'm not 100% that now that I think about it. Could have been First Strike....

David Fincher Ranked

1. Seven (It's one of my favorite films by any filmmaker.)
2. Zodiac (I literally found myself on the edge of my theater seat opening weekend. And my pants were wet.)
3. Fight Club (The quintessential guy movie of this generation.)
4. The Social Network (Time will say if this becomes higher on my list.)
5. Benjamin Button (The length puts me off from watching this more often. But it's everything I hoped it would be.)
6. Panic Room (Loved it in theaters and it's held up as a sleek, fast paced thriller.)
7. The Game (Again, this one's held up reasonably well. But is there a blu ray scheduled? My dvd looks like ass.)
8. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Read the book. Saw the original. I can already say it's better than Alien 3.)
9. Alien 3 (I saw this for the first time last Halloween. Wow. What a bowl of crap. Cool premise though and Fincher gave some great visuals.)
JohnLocke2342 at 12:36 PM Jan 12

I always had a soft spot for Alien 3.. never thought it was half as terrible as people made it out to be.

You are the Man, Nerd. Fincher can do no wrong right now, as if he ever did. I'm pretty much synched that he could make a film about a cheesburger and it would still be engaging and interesting. I LOVE ALL his films...and Can't wait to see his next project.

Favorite T-Shirts of all time (feeling nostalgic this morning)

1. Red Peter Pan shirt (5-6 yrs old) - I vividly remember going to the mall with my mom and getting this from a department store. I loved it so much I tried it on and refused to change back into my original shirt.)
2. Black Bart Simpson shirt (4-5 yrs old) - I had cool parents that let me watch The Simpsons. I believe it had a dialogue bubble saying "Aye Carumba".)
3. Classic Logo Batman shirt (5-7 yrs old) - Yellow & black. My dad had the same one which was extremely cool to me.
4. Black Smashing Pumpkins concert shirt (10-11 yrs old) - First concert. First band I obsessed over. This had a silver SP logo, similar to that of Scott Pilgrim's. No idea what happened to it.
5. Black Crow shirt (10-11) - I had a black wannabe goth/grunge phase in the 6th grade. Cool huh?
6. Gray Led Zeppelin 1977 tour shirt (14 yrs old) - Mind you this was a few years before you could waltz into Target and find a LZ shirt. NOBODY listened to this kind of stuff at my school, let alone knew who they were.
7. Black Dark Side of the Moon shirt (15 yrs old) - Same thing. Although I had a few ignorant morons ask if the rainbow had a gay/lesbian connotation.
8. Blue Tokyo Basketball shirt (16-17 yrs old) - You know those generic shirts from wither Old Navy or any other random store that you get for extremely cheap, but they end up fitting great and go with everything? This was that shirt. Until I got drain cleaner on it.
9. Red Star Wars japanese shirt (25 yrs old) - Newest shirt on the list. I've gone through a few SW shirt in my day, but this is so rad I'm afraid to wear it out of the house.
10. Blue Yamaha Motors v-neck shirt (24 yrs old) - I'm new to the v-neck club.
11. Black Silver Surfer shirt (23 yrs old) - Got this at Universal Studios in the Marvel store. I almost spent way too much money there, but then I remembered I had to fly back home.

randychico at 12:58 PM Dec 22

Her beauty overshines whatever lines that come out clunky

horrorfan23 at 01:40 PM Dec 22

She's great, but her acting in The Happening was pretty bad. She would say her lines with a bewildered look to her face and a vapid tone.

nerd85 at 02:33 PM Dec 22

I think we can agree the The Happening was about 90 minutes of vapid tone. Although viewed as a B-movie / Dark Comedy it has it's moments.

She may not be the most varied actress but her charisma far exceeds her delivery. Well put @randychico.

Plus she sings like an angelic, elven princess on a cloud of cuteness.

Pink Floyd Albums (Yes I still call them albums)

1. The Wall - Top spot changes all the time, but this was the one I first listened to. My mom always said "the guy wrote it while having a nervous breakdown." That's not exactly ture, but it intrigued the shit out of me.
2. Wish You Were Here - This was the answer to the questions of the DSotM. They had money & fame and were completely miserable.
3. Animals - Not as recognized as some of the others. This is more of a guitarists' favorite album. Could have been the soundtrack to Children of Men too.
4. Meddle - The real start of the post-Barrett Floyd. I love the bookend feel of it, it's just a nice cruising-around record.
5. The Dark Side of the Moon - The only reason it's ranked so low is that, they play half of it on classic rock stations nearly everyday. It's a perfect album in every way.
6. The Piper at the Gates of Dawn - This took me a while to really appreciate. I love psychedelic stuff now, but not so much in high school. Fits with Sgt. Pepper & Pet Sounds.
7. Obscured by Clouds/More - These soundtracks are like nothing they did before. There's a little bit of everything and thjer may take few spins, but they're oddly cool. Obscured by Clouds is the better of the two IMO.
8. Atom Heart Mother - I think the band all but disowned this one. It's a transitional one for sure, but has it's charms. The orchestral stuff fits nice.
9. Is There Anybody Out There? - Okay, so it's just The Wall live. But The Wall is a LIVE album, that's what it was designed to be. In some instances this is superior to the studio album.
10. Echoes - What kind of idiot puts a compilation on a best of list, I must hate Pink Floyd right? I'm plainly not a fan of the post-Waters stuff. It's quite a unique comp too, the transitions and song order are fantastic. And this has the two best tracks from Saucerful of Secrets.

Surprise Best of 2010

1. Daybreakers
2. Youth in Revolt
3. The Crazies
4. Percy Jackson (Harry Potter with Greek mythology more or less. But as fun as the book.)
5. Kick Ass (No surprise here actually.)
6. Prince of Persia (For pure weirdness factor. I just kinda went with it.)
7. Get Him to the Greek
8. Rush Beyond the Lighted Stage
9. Scott Pilgrim (I only kinda wanted to see this, but my brother made me watch it and it blew my brain.)
10. The Good, The Bad and The Weird

7. Marmaduke (These last few looked so wretched, I refuse to even watch them)

Characters From The Office (US)

1. Michael - His persistance and complete idiocity are admirable. He can always squeeze in a politically incorrect joke while trying to be politically correct. Not easy to do.
2. Dwight - Reminds me of every socially-deficient nerd I went to school with. But funnier.
3. Jim - The guy every one wants to hang out work.
4. Pam - Kinda obvious. She's everything you'd want in a woman. Fun, smart and ambitious.
5. Angela - She's everything you'd want in a woman if you're the submissive type.
6. Darryl - It's a gift to be funnier when you're angry.
7. Phyllis - She seems like the one to make buddies with because she would make you cookies.
8. Kevin - Not only would he make me feel better about my intelligence, he plays drums.
9. Oscar - He just seems like a good guy.
10. Karen - I have to admit I didn't watch the season with her. But it's Rashida Jones...need I say more?

Judd Apatow-Approved Double Features

1. 40 Year Old Virgin / Knocked Up (Get the obvious out of the way)
2. Superbad / Pineapple Express (Ditto)
3. Anchorman / Walk Hard
4. Forgetting Sarah Marshall / Get Him to the Greek (Did I mention how easy this was?)
5. Drillbit Taylor / Heavyweights (For the kids)
6. Step Brothers / Talladega Nights (I can't stress how much Step Brothers needs to be watched first)
7. The Cable Guy / Fun With Dick & Jane (Both underrated)
8. Funny People / The TV Set (This is an odd choice, because The TV Set has almost nothing to do with Apatow's sensibilities. But it's a charming little film and funny in a sad-reality way)
9. Kicking & Screaming / Year One (They can't all be good........but these are at least worth watching once.)
10. Freaks and Geeks / Undeclared (This would be for a summer vacation scenario. Nothing to do but sit in front of the flatscreen)
11. I Love You Man / Role Models (This is technically Apatow-related. But close enough. Some familiar faces.)

TV-DVDs I want to complete

1. Ren & Stimpy (I know after the first couple seasons, it got kinda spotty, but I love it too much)
2. Pee Wee's Playhouse (I was lazy and never picked up volume 2. It's not as easy to find now)
3. Pete and Pete (Ditto)
4. Family Guy (I'm missing the first 2 volumes. The only thing holding me back is that I have burned copies to watch if I want to.)
5. G.I. Joe (Everything after Season 1 Volume 1. And the prices are kinda steep)
6. The Office (Hard to complete as it's still on air, but I would like more than 1 season worth.)
7. The Legend of Zelda (I'll say this is the best video game animated show of the 80's. And I only need the Power of the Triforce disc to complete the whopping 13 eps.)
8. Serial Experiments Lain (Not a great anime. I got the first two discs fairly cheap when my Suncoast closed up and haven't found the rest cheap enough.)
9. The Simpsons (Have the first 3 seasons and it was just getting it's groove after that.)
10. Super Mario Bros. (Yeah it's terrible, but the vintage Nintendo geek in me needs the collection.)

If The Beatles Had 1 More Album (under the pretense that they were still under contract. A double album would be amazing though)

1. I'm The Greatest - Ringo (John wrote and played on it, as did George. It be cool to hear Ringo open an album for a change)
2. Oh Woman Oh Why - Paul (I'm going with the idea that they would have all gotten at least 1 solo album out of the way)
3. Crippled Inside - John (a dfferent genre for John and still with a dark wit)
4. What Is Life - George (just a great song)
5. Another Day - Paul (typical Paul pop ballad)
6. All Things Must Pass - George (one he wrote while in the Beatles)
7. I Don't Wanna Be A Soldier Mama - John (Good ending to Side A. John being political but not offensive)
8. Hi Hi Hi - Paul (Perfect single and a blatant show of Paul's sense of humor)
9. Not Guilty - George (The infamous unreleased track that took 100-something takes to get right. perfect spot for it)
10. Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey - Paul (This always struck me as Beatle-esque. Mini-opera with good multi vocal possibilities)
11. Imagine - John (After he got Plastic Ono Band out of his system, he might have saved this for the next Beatle album. A pop song with a deeper message)
12. The Back Seat of My Car - Paul (Don't know why. Good harmonies though.)
13. Wah Wah - George (Cool song. And fun)
14. Now and Then - John (Only recently found this. An intended re-do for Anthology 3, ala "Free as a Bird". But officially unreleased.)

Miyazaki-San Ranked (by personal preference)

1. Princess Mononoke - This is a tough spot, because all of his films fit together so well as a collection. But this was the first I saw and holds that special little spot. I watched my VCR-taped copy about half a dozen times.
2. Howl's Moving Castle - I know most people hate the ending. It's so imaginative, even though it's based on an already imaginative book.
3. Castle In the Sky - Kinda has it all. Adventure, a female lead, European setting, magical elements. I guess what drew me in were the comparisons to a later OVA Anime I love; Final Fantasy:The Legend of the Crystals.
4. Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind - I'm glad I saw this full version, instead of the apparently butchered "Warriors of the Wind" release. Although a copy on VHS would be rad for collecting purposes.
5. Spirited Away - I came in late for this one. The hype had already passed, so I felt no pressure to be pleased. But I was. Not one I can watch so frequently as the others, but still fantastic.
6. Porco Rosso - It's getting harder to put these last few in order. But this is possibly the most humurous of Miyazaki's IMO. Plus the Dub has Michael Keaton, need I say more?
7. Ponyo - This looks great on blu-ray BTW. Honestly, the Little Mermaid inspirations didn't even hit me the first time I watched it. It made me feel like a little kid again, following it through. The long sequence on the toy boat is one of my favorite of all Ghibli films.
8. Kiki's Delivery Service - My extremely recent re-viewing of this made me like it even more. Oddly enough, this could make a fun little series if it was done right.
9. My Neighbor Totoro - Ok, I'll get some shit from fellow fans for putting this so low, but I've only seen it once.... Sorry. It's incredibly charming, and the characters are wonderful, I just haven't had another chance.
10. Castle of Cagliostro - Apparently Stephen Speilberg is also an admirer of this film. And again, I've only seen it once on a rental, but I loved it. Come to think of it, I would probably like Lupin III if I knew what else to watch.

Projects I Would Direct if Given the resources

1. Wizard of Oz Trilogy (Or quadrilogy. It needs to be adapted in the style and whimsy of the original Dorothy books. No gothic reboot, No cgi.)
2. Jonny Quest (I mentioned this in a thread recently, but to do it in the 1960s flavor, sort of Wes Anderson meets Indiana Jones or Connery-era Bond.)
3. Bullitt Sequel (Why the hell not? It would have the studio-backing of a remake, but carry on the character's development. Plus it would be fun to try and out-do the car chase with the same Mustang)
4. Thundarr the Barbarian (F-k He Man. Post apocalyptic sword & sorcery?? Who wouldn't watch that?)
5. Three Part Beatles Bio-Pic (An un-biased, but still respectful dramatization of they're WHOLE career. It's the perfect rock & roll story.)
6. The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami (Read it. You'll thank me.)
7. Metal Gear Solid (It would be a challenge to find the right balance of militaristic espionage and fantasy. But careful scripting, good casting and tasteful cinematography could pull it off.)
8. Zombie movie (either set in the 80s for no reason other than it would be cheese fun. Or set in fuedal Japan, black & white. Romero meets Kurosawa)

2. Metroid : Can't even get past the first area! How do you know where you're supposed to go?
3. Legend of Zelda : WTF? How do you do anything with out dying? Why can I never find the fairy except by accident when I don't need it?
4. Rygar
5. Castlevania : Why can't I find health anywhere? Starting back at the beginning is sooo piss off-ish.
6. Metal Gear : Don't even get me started.
7. Contra : Even the code can't guarantee a damn thing.
8. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles : The platform doesn't even make sense.
9. Wizards and Warriors
10. Kung Fu : This game has been frustrating the shit out of me since I was 4 years old.
Derek237 at 03:57 PM Oct 22

Yeah Contra is tough but surprisingly I can get through Super Contra in under 30 minutes. As for TMNT it's not even worth the time. The Super Mario Bros. games can be tough too in the later stages but I've found if you just take your time and collect lives and power ups and all that it's pretty reachable. One game that kills me that I'd add to this list in NINJA GAIDEN. My God, that is the one game I constantly throw my hands up with rage over. And the worst thing is there's unlimited continues so you feel like there's almost no excuse to not beat it eventually. Arg.

flap jack seems pretty fucked up from what ive seen of it

nerd85 at 09:05 AM Aug 12

I tend to lean with the more unusual sense of humor. I would never force anyone to watch Spongebob, as I could see how a lot of people hate it. But I have been watching it since the first season and it makes me laugh.

Dude, I love SPONGEBOB !! It cracks me up, as well !!

I'm not really into anime, but one of my favorite series I ever caught on TV was .hack//SIGN, something about it I just loved. Check it out if you've never seen it, also anything Miyazaki has touched is fantastic.

nerd85 at 05:04 PM Aug 08

These were heavy on the past decade, Evangelion, Akira, Ghost In The Shell, any Ghibli / Miyazaki are really my favs. One I was REALLY looking forward to watching was Eureka 7 and I couldn't get into it. Maybe I'll do a list of anime I didn't like.

YoshioKun13 at 09:48 PM Aug 08

I haven't gotten into any of the new stuff in recent years, like Bleach and Naruto. Cowboy Bebop was like the last real series I saw from start to finish.
