How many times have you died?
Edit: dammit I thought I was talking to the real K'Kruhk
#3. The Star Wars saga would definitely fit inside a top ten list of my favourite movies. TCW, however, wouldn't even have an outside chance of ranking anywhere within a top 50 list. I felt it was poor and would have worked better as four seperate episodes as part of the animated series. My favourite animal is the crocodile, so I tend to like films that star them. Two films based on crocodiles that stand out for me are Rogue and Primeval. Both have a great storyline with great death scenes. The former, Rogue is my favourite Australian film. Other animal horror films that I enjoy watching are Piranha 3D, Deep Blue Sea and Snakes on a Plane.
Although I enjoy the Harry Potter films, I feel they are a dissapointment compared to the books, and that is a reason why I don't rate them as high as I should. My favourite British film is probably The Tournament, which I feel has a brilliant plot. In case no one here has heard of it, here is the general outline: 'In an unsespecting British city, The Tournament takes place - a secret hitman competition between 30 of the world's deadliest assassins; with the last man standing receiving a £10million cash prize. The Tournament is set up by a syndicate of high stake billionaire gamblers, watching the mayhem unfold via CCTV cameras, betting on its outcome... Only one will survive'.
Horror is my favourite drama, and my favourite films from this genre include the Hatchet duology, the Final Destination pentalogy, the Scream tetralogy and the Friday the 13th franchise along the cross-over film with A Nightmare on Elm Street, Freddy vs Jason. I guess the animal movies from above also count as horror films. Plenty of spectacular death scenes and beautiful naked women.
Classics such as the Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park and Batman franchises are also favourites. In terms of comedy, none come closer than the Jackass trilogy, it's just a shame that Ryan Dunn passed away. My favourite romantic films include Adventureland, Growing Up Brady and anything else that Kaley Cuoco, Kristen Stewart (except Twilight) or Emma Roberts star in. King Kong (2005 version) is in my top ten.
@K'Kruhk, would the way Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ends, the wand nonsense not the epilogue, have something to do with that by any chance?
#4. How do you like to watch @K'Kruhk?
How does he like to watch what?
Anything and how. On TV, on the computer, on the big screen. Imax. Doesn't matter what. =b Great question for showing off a man cave.
The wand nonsense, the pointless blowing up of Bellatrix, no mention of Tonks' and Remus' baby then Harry says sorry to Lupin about it, the removal of several characters, alterations of scenes, no death scene for Fred, hardly any screen time for important characters, etc.
I don't really understand this question, sorry. How do Iike to watch what?
#4. I prefer watching films at the cinema with the big screen and loud sound. When it comes to football (soccer) matches, I tend to watch them downstairs on our larger television, other than that I hardly watch television, and if I do, I tend to watch it in my room. I use my laptop to watch DVDs, I find it easier to use than on televisions. Not that I find it hard to work out a DVD on the television, I just prefer watching them on my laptop. I've only been to an IMAX theatre once, it was ok I guess.
#5 What are your 5 favorite TCW episodes @K'Kruhk?
I had been hoping I wasn't the only one who was bugged by the wand nonsense since I saw the film in theaters. The Harry Potter films are great films and all, but they sure deviated too much from the books, starting with the enchantments protecting the Sorcerer's Stone and Hagrid's hut.
I didn't even know it was called the Philosopher's Stone in Britain for quite a while, and I am sad that Rowling caved to the name change, because I appreciate details like that.
Way to go. You stumped him
I thought I was being kinda by leaving off "Why are they your favorite episodes" so he could Christmas tree it. Would @K'Kruhk like to phone a friend?
@Seerow ... told you.
So sue me. He answered. =d
The Umbaran quodrilogy take places 5 to 2 in no particular order. It was great to see an evil Jedi, and to have a double-double-bladed lightsaber wielding Besalisk fill that role was a joy to behold. The sacrifice of Hardcase, the beginnings of Rex's doubts and the non-stop action helped this become the best arc in TCW.
My favourite episode goes to Revenge. Even though I don't count Maul's return as part of my SW continuity, as a television episode I thought it was excellent. The ritual to bring him back, although a bit odd, looked and sounded brilliant. Of course, the rematch between bisected and bisector was visually entertaining and I'm sure most fans would liked to have seen a Darth Maul vs Obi-Wan rematch of some sorts. Although the sarcastic and smart-ass remarks might have been out-of-place, I found them humorous. I liked that they used the design from the Infinities comic for Maul's robotic legs. Maul being my favourite character might have made this a bit biased, but oh well.
Episodes that narrowly missed out on the top five are Lair of Grievous and Massacre.
I had to think about it, that's why it took me some time to answer
Phone a friend, do I have that option?
No, I wasn't serio about phone a friends. =b
#6. This ones a long one! List your 10 favorite male characters in Star Wars and Wwy are they your favorites? Actually I'll let you include up to 15 if 5 of them are characters from The Clone Wars.
I know you weren't, that's why I put in the smiley.
Oh man this is gonna take me a while Stick around for the list
I stole that one straight from rangercrew. Lol. I figure with the EU Sw could handle a list of 10-15.
I think if I had to make that list it would take me days.
