    V for Vendetta is a great comic, lets hope the movie does it justice. As for King Kong, I might have been interested but that casting tells me it isnt serious so no thanks.

    Well I'm a big Jack Black fan and a big Peter Jackson fan so I will definitely be seeing King Kong. I remember seeing it on the big screen at a drive-in a long time ago.

    There are lots of movies that Jack Black was in that weren't comedies. Like Waterworld, Demolition Man, Dead Man Walking, The Jackal, Enemy of the State, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, Cradle Will Rock, Crossworlds, The Neverending Story 3, and his first film, Marked for Murder. So as you can see, Jack Black is a very serious actor and also a very serious musician.

    I highly recommend "Envy". I thought that that movie was very well done, and unfortunately under rated. For anyone that hasn't seen the film or has seen it and didn't like it, give "Envy" a shot or two. You may enjoy it!

    Jack Black was techie Marshallesque guy in Enemy of the State and one of his best lines was when he was talking about how Satellites only have one point of view from space, which is straight down, and so the camera hypothesizes the other angles...one of the marine guys says "Isn't that kind of limited?" and Jack Black is all "Why don't you invent a better one, genuis...." or something to that effect....it was funny, but Seth Green was the best tech guy in Enemy of the State.....

    what else? read for one. read books, read comic books. I can guarntee that all comic books are better than the movies they are based on, all of them, no exceptions. You want good books to read I can recommend quite a few.

    Roleplay, definitely not enough roleplaying.

    Videogames, videogames are the spice of life and Im not talking worm dung either, though that would be cool.

    Have everyone you know constantly ask for you to look at their PC or work on a website for them, wait, nevermind that one.

    BTW how many times do you people watch the same movie, I watched enemy of the state and I remember liking it but I dont remember anything about it really.

    start collecting something, thats always fun.

    alright axia, if you reeeeeally want to get into it.... video games are not a better pastime than watching movies. i love video games, but not more than movies. books are also a great pastime, but i already do that. i read massive amounts of books. as for collecting something. i do. books. and as far as roleplaying. yeah. i do that too. comics are too expensive and i already read books...and if i want to read comics i do it online. yeah. so...that being said. movies rock. so does music. and internet. i am done. i think.

    Im afraid that videogames blow watching movies out of the water, first of all they are interactive, you are actually DOING something instead of listening to brain cells die by the millions. For the most part there is maybe one, possibly two good movies that come out a year. Most are a painful waste of time and money. (I keep hoping though...) However there are anywhere from 6 to a dozen good videogames a year, and Im talking the really good games. Im not even including the good to fair games.

    But thats just me. Movies seem to get worse and worse and more formulatic and the years beat me down into my grave and videogames just seem to get better.

    I like music but theres very few new bands that I like (man Im mr negativity) and I cnat just sit there and listen to music, 99% of my music listening happens in the car and only if its the CD player becuase all they do is play comercials in the morning and early evening (To and from work) and the DJs never SHUT THE HELL UP!

    I dont see myself as critical, maybe its becuase Im a writer but I just dont enjoy slapped together stories. Take the difference bewteen X2 and Elektra. Even if you liked Elextra is does not stack up to X2 as far as the writing is concerned.

    I do collect things.... I collect movies.... and season collections of tv shows.... the thing about movies is this, when I was growing up both my parents worked about 50 hours a week....when they got home, or had any down time they didn't want to do much but sit around....hence.....we watched a MILLION movies...... that's where my vast store of movie knowledge comes from, and once I like a movie I will watch it over and over and over and over and....well....over......because it's enjoyable for me......


    ....and I do read.... ALOT..... I also collect books.....

    so there....
