Donatello... *dreamy eyes* haha I know!! I loved him ^^ I have a reeeally bad weakness for dorky guys.
But I dunno how I feel about this new take on TMNT :\ They are sposed to fight Shredder and Krane (sp)

and :O Transformers looks badass! I think there's a movie about Vikings coming out this summer also? Pathfinder? I saw a brief trailer for it before 300. It better not suck bc I really like Vikings. And I haven't seen Pan's Labrynth either but I REALLY want to... from what I heard it's just amazing.

Has anyone heard anything about Grindhouse aside from that it's coming out? I haven't seen shit.

I suspect the TMNT movie is a bit of a reinterpretation/evolution of the original story. Which is what they'd HAVE to do to get it to work. No one would want a remake of something everyone's already seen ages ago.

Same with the Transformers movie. It looks weird.

Hope they do something nice with the TMNT 360 game, though, it looks to have a LOT of potential... but I have a weird feeling it'll turn out mediocre...

TOO many remakes lately. Originilality is hard to find these days in Hollywood. Independent or foreign movies are where it's at. Seriously, has anyone seen Pan's Labyrinth? I know some of the creatures were taken from previous myths but it's still pretty original. *shrug

I visited Rotten Tomatoes and saw they had 100 worst reviewed movies and found that a majority of them came out after 2000. It would appear the quality of films is going down lately...

totally off-topic for this thread, but I didn't feel like spamming the board with a new thread for this:

I for one would find it extremely cool, if in the banner at the top, "way of the pixel" would also be written in kanji. That being said, the kanji for pixel(gaso) can be found as number 2124 on this page and the kanji for do(way) is on wikipedia.
(cookies go to entheh of allegro.cc for helping me to find that information)

Shouldn't it be in chinese kanji instead of japanese? Why? Because Bruce is well...Chinese. :-} Nevermind...Japanese kanji was taken from Chinese characters but we should be using the chinese language instead of nihongo.

Hm, actually Bruce was born in the USA, no idea about which characters are appropriate, since well, I know that's Bruce Lee there on the banner but I think "way of the pixel" is so generic it doesn't necessarily have to be associated to Bruce Lee, so in my opinion it would be ok to use those characters I suggested originally.

Ahh yes you're right about that. *shrug Well language aside, I think it'd be cool to do if anyone would pixel the characters.

That's really weird that there's a word for pixel that isn't gairaigo. Most every word that was introduced after like 1902 is just mangled into the japanese syllabary.

By the way: awesome resource for looking things up in japanese.
for great justice
