Maybe it's because my enjoyment of the comic book movies is based on the movie instead of the comics themselves - I read through a few now and then, but lived in the country and never bought more than maybe a handful (including a Captain America, Rom, and maybe one or two others). I never really had a chance to follow the characters at all, just dabbled in whatever comic was at a grocery store when I had a couple minutes. I was way too busy reading the Hardy Boys and actually doing stuff outdoors.

All 3 of the X-Men movies were good, and Spidey 2 in particular was one of the best comic movies ever. Iron Man was pretty good, too

Agreed. I don't mind some liberties - they are making a film and don't have the time or space to fit everything in.

I had an inspiration. I figured out a unification theory, and posted it here on Blues. But the damn post was lost!

Damn it Blue. I solved something that Einstein spent his entire life on and never figured it out, as well as thousands of the finest mines since him. But your site lost it. That is horrible of you, just horrible!

Unless your insight was able to bring down gas prices, keep it to yourself.

hmmm, maybe this will drop the prices of the first 2 in my wishlist at gogamer....everyone keeps telling me to pick them up, just no time to play....

I enjoyed both. The second one had a little more variety with the additional skills, pets, etc available. But I do enjoy the simpler hack and slash at times, and this fills that void.

So a few weeks ago a cop pulls me over and says, 'Do you know how fast you were going , sir?', to which I reply, 'You're the fascist pig, you tell me!'. Actually it was more like, 'How the hell would I know? I'm drunk!'. Actually it was really more like, 'No, sir, not really I don't.'

In general, I have no issue with law enforcement. I do have a beef with the politics which sometimes turns them into revenue devices instead law enforcement. Stop wasting my tax dollars issuing speeding tickets and go patrol a neighborhood or something...

Oh, I agree. And with nin, too. But most police (IMHO) are hardworking folks trying to do their jobs the best they can (and they don't like the politics any more than the rest of us). If I dealt with all the loser crackheads, assholes, and crooks they have to deal with on a daily basis I would probably start getting a bit twitchy at times, too.

InBlack: I don't know about him, but I don't, and it still isn't funny.

I've gotten away with warnings a couple times as well. Always a nice outcome to a traffic stop. Had a couple tickets I got dismissed as well (officer didn't show in court, etc.).

Had free passes to see this tonight so I went to see it before we thought about taking our little guy.

Rated PG for cartoon kung-fu violence only (and lots of it) - no language, blood, etc. to be concerned about at all.

Pretty decent movie, especially for kids. Predictable ending, but that is to be expected here.

Lots of pretty cool kung-fu action. Not bad at all.

I saw a commercial the other day for Jules Vernes Journey to the Center of the Earth coming soon, thats got possibility if it was done right.

No, no, no.

The ad I saw looked positively lame. Ick.

Dan - I was 4 lb 13 oz and I thought I was pretty small at birth! Wow. Good luck man. I hope it all works out OK.

I had(heh - have) one of these:
http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-WingMan-Interceptor-9-Button-Joystick/dp/B00000JDFK

Funny part is, I had that one, too. Then I bought the one I have for some reason. Might be the twist feature, but I don't remember.

I'll try to find an adapter and see if that does the trick first.

Been looking around and it seems some folks are having some problems getting older joysticks to work with USB adapters. Probably back to my original plan of buying a joystick....

You pansy! How dare you call yourself a PC Gamer and have to use a joystick in BF2!

I just got the game as a gift on Friday (belated birthday gift) and when I pulled out my old joystick, it was a Logitech Wingman Extreme Digital 3D with a game port connector, which I do not have on this computer. the friend who gave me the game said to use the joystick if I wanted to fly.

It's this one (without the USB connector):

http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-WingMan-Extreme-Joystick-Throttle/dp/B00001W01M

Actually, is there a USB-game port adapter that would work OK? I don't remember how good this one was, hell I can't even remember the last time I used it. Haven't played a flying game in forever....

I'll have to hunt around and see if there is such a beast.

I need to get a joystick and would like a recommendation.

I don't use them frequently but might want to play a little BF2, etc, not flight sims. Looking for something around $30 or so, no force feedback, no wireless, just something that works well in a fairly basic joystick.

thanks!

Edit - here are a couple I found:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826102204

Any of them any good?

thanks for the head's up Warhawk, we weren't sure what to look forward to with our kid, so that helps.

I may have missed something here or there (had to go get some refreshments for the tyke), but I think that captures the essence of the potential objectionable material.

The trailers don't lie - it's like someone took all the neon lights they could find and put them in every racing scene they could find (except for a few scenes in exotic natural locales). It was better than I thought, which isn't saying much, but the movie was like a CGI Tokyo Drift with bumper cars thrown in. The racing scenes are teriffic in their badness with spinning and jumping around with neon and blur effects everywhere. Our 5-year old liked it.

A few tidbits for those with young kids - a scene with pirahnas (not too graphic, but more than I felt comfortable with our son, so I covered his eyes), the "s***" word (bleeped out), "ass" and "damn" a couple of times, ninja-style fighting, some blood on a face from a split lip and bloody nose, and one flipping the bird. I was a bit nervous going in (for a 5-year old), but to me it wasn't too much for him (in general).
