Out of the Blue

The backlog of movies I would like to check out in the theaters keeps growing, and at this point the only thing knocking anything off the list is flicks that close. A couple more are coming out today, and I think I am going to be unable to resist pushing the Doom movie to the top of the list. I don't know that this means I will get out to see it, but I am quite curious about it, and I think I'll have regrets if it were to close before I got the chance to check it out.

Even though it was Quake and CS/TFC, I'd still like to see the Rock bunny hopping with a shotty and using the hook to swing around.

There will be more teenie boppers at the movies
It's rated R...dunno about where you live, but theatres in Vancouver are very strict about letting under aged people into the movies.

I guarantee that in most showings there will be at least one person there with a kid under the age of 8 because they are too damn cheap to get a babysitter or too damn spineless to tell their kids "no, you cannot go to an adult movie" (by adult I mean rated R). I am also willing to bet you will find kids under 5 at showings as well, unfortunately....

Can anyone suggest a reasonable upgrade from an ATI 9800 Pro that won't leave me unable to feed my children for the next year but still provide a substantial performance boost? I've been getting by just fine until F.E.A.R. came along where the best I can muster is 800x600 at medium quality. Even at these settings thing can get a little choppy from time to time. This would have to be an AGP card as I'm no position for a full system upgrade where I would move to PCI-express. Thanks for any suggestions.

What's with all the talk about folks here thinking about seeing Doom? I thought it was implicitly agreed that no one was going? Come on and stand your ground!

You have to be kidding right? All movies are targetted at specific audiences, some just have a broader range than others. Doom is rated R, targets the 18 to 35 males, most of which will be gamers. This isn't going to be a "hey honey, lets grab the kids and go see Doom." type movie.

You would be surprised.
There will be more teenie boppers at the movies tonight than your 18-35.

/edit:
Wresting fans, gamers and "internet nerds" are all part of the same demographic...so it holds plenty of value.

You have a skewed defenition of "internet nerds". There are very few people I consider that type. It sounds like you are grouping a very large group into internet nerds. Which would make them the opposite. For instance, there are very few here I would consider internet nerds.

I would consider an "internet nerd" an elitist. Which there are plenty here, just not what I would consider in your grouping. There are plenty of "other" websites where you would find the crowd. But these nerds you speak of....there really aren't that many....

THE ROCK as the main character - as he holds zero value for "internet nerds"

Wresting fans, gamers and "internet nerds" are all part of the same demographic...so it holds plenty of value.

Movies are not made for niche auidiences at this level.

His name is "The Rock". Stop calling him Dwayne Johnson.
He should never be allowed to forget or put past him his nearly naked tight wearing oiled up days of playing with other nearly naked tight wearing guys.


Good to hear the misses is doing great WarHawk!

I dun'no; I was building up a mild cheesey wish to see it, but Dwayne Johnson's appearance on The Daily Show cooled that off. I guess, looking at the trailers, I knew the weapons were a bit large, but I never realize just how stupidly large they (BFG) were. I was not expecting a whole lot, maybe a Mars-based Resident Evil, but the clip they played was incredibly bad. It was not much of a clip, just some dude being grabbed by a monster in the ceiling, and did not go on that long, but it just...it seemed really, really bad. It is a fine line, for sure, but it just...I felt like a really amateur, hokey piece of film.
And I am not looking forward to Dwayne's "change."
I do not know - I was almost to the point of wanting to see it for some stupid fun, but now it will depend on what the "group" wants to see/do. No way can I, after seeing what I did, suggest the film on my own.

Actually, it looks like all 3 blood clots in her lungs have dissolved completely and she will probably be cleared to resume full-time work next week. GREAT NEWS!
She still has to stay on the Coumadin for a while, though, we're not sure for how long at this point.
Again, thanks for all the well wishes in the past.


Cheers! If I wasn't at work, I would tip one to you and yours!
