    TRUE BLOOD # 12:Evil is Going On/Season (Ending) III/2010

    Up until the last two episodes this has been my favourite season of the show so far. The plot twists they introduced in this ep left me a little cold. Some characters seem to be acting out of character. I'll still be tuning in next season but it was kind of an unsatisfactory ending for me...

    Malazan Book of the Fallen

    I just finished A Feast for Crows and the Malazan books have caught my attention. The good reviews here are really stoking the fires so to speak, but I'm going to hold off on diving into another dense fantasy series for a while. Too much sitting on the "to read" shelf as it is.

    Surprisingly Deep Celebrities

    Geraldo's a jerk now, but at one time he was a fairly respected journalist, wasn't he? (though I could be pulling that from my arse).

    Animated sequel to Avatar: Last Airbender-Legend of Korra

    YES! I'm just getting my son into the original cartoon now and he loves it. This is very welcome news after the misery that was the movie.

    [Trailer] Last Airbender: what's the appeal?

    I saw it last night. It wasn't good. First off, I couldn't find a theatre playing it in 2D, and there isn't a single 3D effect in the damn movie. This felt like extortion to me. The 3D effect only served to screw up the focus of several scenes. The dialogue is awful. It exists only to...

    [Trailer] Last Airbender: what's the appeal?

    For those concerned about the lack of humour, this trailer seems to offer some hope.

    [Trailer] Last Airbender: what's the appeal?

    The original cartoon was excellent IMO, and not just "good for a kid's show". The story, the characters, the world, the animation -- all were top shelf. However, based on your post I'm not sure if you should bother with either the TV show or the movie. Frankly they don't seem like something...

    [June] What are you reading?

    Encouraging news. Sweet! :cool:

    [June] What are you reading?

    I'm reading A Clash of Kings. Before I started I was concerned this series wouldn't live up to the hype. So far it may actually be exceeding it. I'm hoping the quality holds up. Besides that I'm working my way through DC/Vertigo's Lucifer series. Good read so far. And when I have time I'll be...

    [June] What are you reading?

    I've been wanting to read that one. I've heard a lot of good things.

    The Hobbit in Limbo: No Mo Del Toro

    Oooh, good pull.

    The Hobbit in Limbo: No Mo Del Toro

    Perhaps PJ will feel like directing by the time they get around to shooting it. Other than that I have no idea who might take over. Spielberg and Jackson worked together on Tin Tin, but I doubt he'd be interested. Perhaps Senior Spielbergo?

    The Hobbit in Limbo: No Mo Del Toro

    Ugh, that sucks. There are other talented directors out there though. Plus, perhaps this means del Toro will get to make his Mountains of Madness movie. :cool:

    Robin Hood (Spoilers)

    I didn't mind the movie, but all of the above criticisms of it are spot on.

    What Do You Do That's Different From Normal?

    I have OCD, so there are a number of things that I do that are different from normal.
  16. Darth Shoju


    It is and it shows it in places. I remember years ago I was talking to one of my employees about when Back to the Future came out. I asked if he saw it in the theatre like I did, and he replied that he hadn't been born yet. bleh.

    Iron man 2 (no spoilers)

    I haven't seen this movie yet, but I'd be surprised if Sam Rockwell turned in a bad performance. He's been excellent in everything I've ever seen him in (particularly in Moon).

    George RR Martin still writing?

    He's referred a number of times to a "Meereenese Knot". Deduce from that what you will. Also, I thought this journal entry was interesting and somewhat germane.

    George RR Martin still writing?

    I think you've written yourself a pretty generous definition of "direct evidence". Has he burned up his goodwill? Sure, he clearly has with a number of people. I have no problem with someone saying "this is taking too long, and I don't feel that you are respecting how frustrating this is for...

    George RR Martin still writing?

    Meh. I`d rather he take his time and do it right. From what he posts on his `Not a Blog`, he seems to be working on it regularly. It seems he wrote himself into something of a corner, and is trying to get out of it without screwing it all up. I can appreciate that. Sure the delay is very...
