Dunno, just always seen them as a bit geeky and weird and stupid, and most of them always seemed to have really pathetic special effects. Although this is mostly hearsay and stereotyping.

Just not really my thing in general. There's not even that many space films I really love.
Some of them do have absolutely **** effects. Like Andromeda :sigh: Not the genre's finest moment.

Firefly, however, has pretty good special effects, and, more importantly, knows when to use them and when not to.

Just watched The Fighter, didn't blow me away but I liked it a lot. Probably about a 7/10.

Not convinced that Melissa Leo deserved the Oscar though.
I really hated her character, but she acted it very well.

Just watched Scott Pilgrim again. If anything, it gets better the more times you watch it. It's almost faultless.
I wish Kieran Culkin did more films.
I really liked him in Scott Pilgrim too Hope he does plenty more films.

I also watched 'You Can Count on Me' the other day which has the other Culkin brother in, Rory... Instantly recognisable as they all look pretty much the same He was also really good.

Who wouldn't want to be able to watch Home Alone and say "I tapped that"?!

Smirnoff?

Am currently trying to think of a suitably witty response to both.
Yeah, that's one of the names he goes by (has so many accounts). And by some disturbing coincidence (he's spying on us), a little while after you said his name, he sent me a PM demanding reminding me to +7 rep him because I had 'assured' him I would...

Stolen from another thread. But i think it's nostalgia.

You can keep all your new features, pokemon and battles styles, just give me a magikarp, pikachu, diglet, pidgy, caterpie and a Ghastly and I will prevail.
Nostalgia indeed. What Gameboys did you guys have? Remember carrying around the B/W Gameboy...all the other kids had their Colours, GBAs and SPs :cry:

SP kids sucked. :pierre:

At least me and Cambo (from the looks of it) stopped at GBA. None of that SP and Micro shizzle. :hand:

Has anybody here came across any films which have had a good concept, but which has been badly executed? Jumper and Invention of Lying spring to mind for me. On the opposing end, The Butterfly Effect had a good concept which was well executed.

I agree with The Invention of Lying.

Duplex? Phonebooth? 4.3.2.1? The Da Vinci Code? :holmes:

Alien: Resurrection I think. I agree with Jumper and The Invention Of Lying and I'd like to add Ronin to them.

Conversely I think True Grit (the recent one) was the opposite - a bad story (or, at least, too 2D for me) that was very well executed!

It did seem a little odd that I've never spoken to him and was just met with such a rude "are you a medical student or what?". Oh well, it seems there are some very peculiar people on TSR...

Paycheck is my fallback example for this. Fantastic story, and a good crew (directed by John Woo, starring Affleck, Thurman, Eckhart) but it just doesn't quite come together. I really loved it when I was younger though. I am always willing to try and overlook a film's flaws if you can see that it's attempted to do something original, daring or ambitious.

Daybreakers, that's like the definitive great concept poorly executed, also agree on Jumper

My brother had a GBC, which I frequently stole borrowed. I bought a retro GB from a neighbour when he got his GBC, which I used until the GBA came out right next to my birthday. I scorned the SP, and eventually got a DS. Which I sold after a few months.
