    I can never resist watching that video whenever it's posted. It's just so gloriously stupid. By far the best part is the positive adjectives that manifest over Han and Lando's crotches.


    From the limited expertise I have by virtue of the fact that my parents watch the show . . . I don't think he'd be able to theme it that way very often, because they have to do different dances and music and stuff. I just don't think it would work. I'm guessing this was more of a one-time thing.

    I love that Star Wars Kinect not only decided to have the Emperor and his guards dance, but also Greejatus and Aloo. Now we know what really goes on at meetings of the Imperial Ruling Council.

    Also on a diversity note, I think it's also one of the few video games (along with Force Commander and I think GBG) to acknowledge the existence of female Imperial officers.

    So, here's an interview with the director of the new Godzilla film. Interestingly enough, the film he most likens the project to isn't another traditional monster film, it's Clone Encounters of the Third Kind. It sounds like he's gone out of his way to avoid having a big CGI Monster splashfest on screen a la Pacific Rim and is formatting the story more like a suspense or horror film where the monster is talked about but seldom seen.

    I am ridiculously excited. [face_dancing]

    Yes. He talks about that in the interview, says that Monsters was the hardest project he'd ever done, but Godzilla trumps it by an order of magnitude.

    Incredibles was pretty good, my grumbling against Pixar aside. I think it's the only one of their films I own on DVD.

    Pixar pulled some magic with TS2 and TS3, but I hear their other sequels are middling.

    Edit: also still bitter about the movies anti-cape propaganda!

    Cars 2 was okay, so I'll probably see a third one. I don't know which I'm more excited for, though, Finding Dory or Incredibles 2. :D

    Well, with the 3D re-release soon, I'm sure there will be one shortly.

    Always seemed odd that Disney hadn't already done it.

    Totally enjoyed the Marvel special.

    But it did make me want to stay up all night marathoning comic book movies. And that's not an option on a Tuesday. :_| :p

    ROOT EPISODE. Also two-guns Fusco, Shaw hitting people with a big metal bar, and Root/Shaw flirting. This would be the best episode ever if not for Collier's stupid terrorists.

    Do they really treat the fact that the winter soldier is actually the first bucky as a spoiler? Do they actually think people don't know that?
