Wall-E is taking ridiculously long to release here. So far of all animated movies I enjoyed The Incredibles the most.
And about ID: exactly.

No Iron Man?

Crap.. forgot about ironman

TDK, Wall-E, Ironman and Hellboy 2 are my current favorites this year <fixed>. Wanted is also good :D

Oh yeah, this what happened with TDK.

wall-e suffers from a dramatic lack of informative promotion.  no sense of the plot in any ads or even some writeups.  if people knew what it was about it might have done better.

The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Is anyone here familiar with fruity loops? Or perhaps would recommend a better program for making music?
I want to see if I'm talented musically.

And it would be good to make some music for Twinsen

I use it alot.
I really like it. It might not be as proffesional as Reason or Cubase, but it's an excellent program to start out with.

I'm sure atleast some of you played FFVI:
Anyone know why instant death attacks sometimes don't work? For example with Edgar's chainsaw.
Sometimes when it does instant death, the enemy dies but then just pops back up. Why does that happen?

Hey all, I'm back, sorta.

I was searchin' around the interwebs, and found the new site.

@.TakaM - Unless you're buying the software, go for Reason. If for no other reason, choose it for the fact that Fruity Loops drum samples suck.
 
On a side note, I really like the Gimp:

The one that's riding a bike is me. The guy that's Jesus and the Cowgirl is my friend Turner. The one who's in a gay metal band with toasters is my friend Reginald.

automatic instant death would be lame, sometimes it misses (but still shows the full animation) and sometimes the enemy is immune (bosses).  This is true in most early FF's.

Ah right. But I found it weird especially because it ALWAYS has the instant death effect on a few specific monsters. Who would then re-apear with full health!
So instead of sometimes doing damage instead of instant death as it should, it always does instant death which I found kinda weird.
