  1. I'm still waiting for the Dunder Mifflin and Wernham Hogg crossover episode.
  2. What I'd like to see is a decent adaptation as opposed to yet another retelling. Man For All Seasons would be a good start.
  3. Really? I read somewhere, can't remember where, that there should be six new episodes.
  4. He's funny, but the way he is written just seems like its out of another show completely. It just always feels out of place.
  5. I picked up Season 2 at Target on Black Friday for ten bucks not too long ago. After going through it and also watching some torrents of the newer episodes, I've come to a realization. I don't like Andy. I like Ed Helms, but I just don't like his character. He's sort of like Klinger in M*A*S*H. He's funny when he's just a bit player early on, but later when he's a regular he starts to get annoying. It's quite possible that his character is written that way, but when I cringe when he's getting a segment mostly to himself, maybe its going a little too far.
  6. There's a simple explanation for that. Somehow they ruptured the space time continuum to somehow cause Halloween to not exist.
  7. When 1955 Doc sends Marty to 1885, he sends him on September 2nd. My birthday! True dat! Tom Wilson went on to have a moderately successful career after that, mostly doing guest spots on sitcoms and voice overs for cartoons and such. Notably, he's usually a regular guest voice on Spongebob Squarepants. But since BTTF, most of his fame is from his stand up comedy career, where he does family friendly comedy and a little bit of comedy music. But yeah. Totally, totally underrated actor and comedian.
  8. Just watched that last episode from the torrent download. That's one of the best ones I've seen in a while. The Michael Scott Director's Cut makes my life complete.
  9. This bit was great too. I must confess I've done this too.
  10. I wonder if the whole "keeping the pizza kid hostage" thing is going to run into the next episode. Michael gets away with a lot, but I can't really see that one sliding by. The whole thing with the website "talking" to Dwight was one of the funniest bits I've ever seen on the show.
  11. Laugh if you want, but I think Neil Patrick Harris would be a good Flash. Edit: weird. I had assumed that NPH already had played Flash at some point, possibly in the JL:U cartoon series. I suppose because the actor who had voiced him before sounds so much like him already. But after doing some Googling, it turns out that he hasn't before, but will in a direct to DVD animated movie out early next year. So apparently, someone up top was already thinking of him for the role before I was.
  12. True. I suppose it'd be sorta pointless to rehash them in a different formula now. But after reading the article from that link, I think I'd actually prefer the JLA movie now as opposed to a new stand alone Superman.
  13. If there are any sequels and if they do catch on, I really would like to see the whole Death of Superman storyline on film. I know many didn't really care for that era, but that's what brought me into comics in the early 90's.
  14. I liked Superman Returns alright. It was pretty cool but I'm with Jason in thinking that it drew too much on the Donner films and didn't have it's own voice. I'd also have just preferred a new retelling of the origin story. Imagine a Superman version of how Batman Begins handled the origin story. That would have been awesome, but now the chance for that is blown.
  15. I never understood all the hate for Cars. I still love it.
  16. By the way, from what I’ve read, Pixar really has something surprising up their sleeves with Wall-E, their next movie. If they follow through with what Lassater has proposed, it’s going to be even grander in scale and more complicated than The Incredibles. The proposal Lassater threw at the Disney board meeting is at the end of this PDF, I think they are really going to throw a lot of people for a loop. http://corporate.disney.go.com/media/inves..._irc_studio.pdf
  17. Following up on what Andy said.. I stuck around through the credits on Ratatouille the other night, looking for easter eggs and such and noticed something towards the end of the listings. There was a funny little graphic along with some of the others which proudly proclaimed the film as "100% Motion Capture Free" or something like that. I initially wondered what was up with that. But after thinking about it, I realized. Motion capture is just a half ass way of animating. You just stick a guy in a suit and hook every extremity up to a computer and your work is done. Pixar could easily d
  18. Out of all of those, I'd take Toy Story. But my favorite Pixar movie, and consequently my favorite CGI movie is still Toy Story 2. Way better than the original. And seriously, you guys who don't like Pixar are just cold hearted bastards. By the way, it's funny you guys mention Titan A.E. It's been years since I've seen that, but I still remember that in development it was originally supposed to be a fully CGI movie. But the studio didn't buy it, saying that the charecters looked out of place. So then instead of scrapping the entire film, they just brought in traditional animators to do
  19. I love any chance to gush about my favorite movies.. The script to the first Back to the Future is arguably one of the best ever written. There's no point at any point in that script where there isn't an element that advances a charecter, advances the story, or connects with another element. Back to the Future II is arguably as good. I mean think about it. That movie deals with multiple versions of multiple locations, multiple versions of different charecters, visits three distinct eras (one of which has an alternate version), and still manages to be a fine example of crisp storytelling
