3. 8 Sequels That Destroy Their Originals Nov 4, 2010, 11:45  Kenn Hoekstra 
 
Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls was horrible. With the exception of the mechanical Rhino scene, there wasn't a single funny thing about that movie. Doesn't hold a candle to the original...

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is also not mentioned. Fail ++

14. Mr. T Blasts A-Team Movie? Jun 9, 2010, 13:48  Kenn Hoekstra 
 
Call me crazy, but I would consider "this movie f***ing sucks" to be "blasting" the film. "This has too much sex and violence compared to the show we did" sounds more like an observation.

I pity the fool who came up with that headline...

If you've never witnessed this kind of thing, you should try being a Brewers fan for a while.

Raven isn't developing this game. And it's Activision Value that's publishing it.

Did John Carpenter trademark "Escape From The Earth?" That would be a much better title, if available.

I think Tim's last name is spelled "Gerritsen."

Minor typo there...

I got to play the game about six months ago as an in house beta tester and I absolutely loved it. I can't wait to play the full version.

Great job HH guys!

My first act as Head Coach will be to prevent my star players from riding motorcycles without helmets.

Shatner does commercials for a Texas law firm in the greater Houston area as well.

The guy sure gets around these days.

My dog would tip the bowl over so he could eat the food right off the floor.

Blue: You actually feed your dog meat every day rather than a dry food?

Isaiah Thomas in the 2nd worst GM in professional sports...

Only Matt Millen of the Detroit Lions is worse.

News Comments > Activision Gets License to Kill with James Bond
3. Well... May 3, 2006, 18:01  Kenn Hoekstra 
 
"Die Another Day" was not the worst Bond of them all. That distinction belongs to "Diamonds Are Forever."

*shudder*

"Die Another Day" was also superior to other Bond efforts like "Moonraker," "The World Is Not Enough" and "Tomorrow Never Dies."

It wasn't a perfect film by any means, but it was a nice rebound from the Brosnan films not named "GoldenEye."

17. Bond May 3, 2006, 12:47  Kenn Hoekstra 
 
The Bond trailer was surprisingly good. The "part monk, part assassin" line was God awful.

Bond's never been much for continuity, but why they kept Judi Dench on as "M" promoting a young Bond to Double Oh status is beyond me. That seems suspect at best...

3. McDonalds... Apr 19, 2006, 11:30  Kenn Hoekstra 
 
McDonalds bashing is getting tired at this point... When I watched "Super Size Me," I paused the movie to run and grab a Big Mac. It made the whole film much more enjoyable...

P.S. Dollar menu forever!

What ever happened to the DeadLands game these guys were working on?

The section's still up on their website, but I get the impression they haven't worked on it in ages...

6. Well... Mar 21, 2006, 13:54  Kenn Hoekstra 
 
The screenshots look pretty cool, actually, for a budget title and for how far along they are (not very far).

As for the title being crap, they admit as much on their website. There's a topic in their forums to suggest a new title for the game. I, personally, suggested "Death's Head." Heh...

Things are going well here at Pi. I'm very happy here.

I actually do live inside the loop. I live just off of Main Street and Greenbriar, so I'm right in the middle of everything.

After living here, I don't think I could move out to the 'burbs.

3. Google Mar 1, 2006, 19:08  Kenn Hoekstra 
 
As a new resident of Houston, Texas, I find myself using Google regularly to learn about the city and Google Maps pretty much daily for driving directions. I was thinking the other day how much I've come to rely on it to ease the transition to a new city.

It's interesting to think back to the pre-internet days. I don't know how I survived! But obviously I did...
