    I've only seen the one where the guy is trying to watch his iPad or whatever it is, with all the kids running around.

  3. Many of us are like that, our mind will be intrigued by challenges it face. Confusing movies are always challenging to understand.

    Am I the only person working 19hrs a day?

    Am I the only one who thinks it's slightly insensitive to "like" a rest in peace post on facebook? A family pet has died, and a number of people have liked the post her owner put up, but haven't offered any condolences. I know social media is killing the greeting card industry, but the least you can do is push the five buttons for "sorry" instead of clicking the thumbs up key.

    Like so many dumb things that have become apparent with the rise of facebook I always laugh at this kind of thing. It's why FB,Twitter, etc should be used for poops and giggles or stuff that isn't personal. Currently one of my buddies from high school just split from his girl of 7 years and he just keeps making posts about it and liking old pics of them. It's all just entertainment for me.

    I'm also with Shawn in that I don't get Smash Bros. It's cute but for me I just can't see to come to grips with it. It and Mario Kart just leave me completely flabbergasted at their controls and are completely unplayable to me. It's so weird it's only those two franchises that I can't just jump in and play.

    I think "like" isn't meant to be taken literally in this situtation, though. It doesn't mean "I like this," as much as it means "I support you." But yes, a personal message would be nice.

    Am I the only one who isn't as impressed with Google Chrome as everyone else? Many consider it to be the best browser out there, but it honestly isn't any stronger than Firefox as far as I'm concerned.

    There was originally a difference, but it didn't take long for Firefox to update itself with everything Chrome introduced.

    You know what's a pet peeve of mine? Derpy faces on movie posters. They make already lowbrow movies look a lot stupider.

    I really couldn't stand this one. This is a perfect example.

    Yeah, I hate that too. Unfortunately, it seems that most comedies use those kinds of posters nowadays.

    I take it you saw today's Yahoo article about the most horribly-Photoshopped movie posters? :D I'd never seen this poster until I clicked on that article.

    I miss the days when poster art was creative and actually painted by master artists. You still get that occasionally, but I guess these days it's just quicker and super cheaper to go the cut-and-paste headshot route. :(

    It has been strange to me, too. Why so many at one time based on that one nursery rhyme?

    Yeah, I miss those old, Blade Runner-esque paintings. What was the most recent movie to have one? Revenge of the Sith is the newest one I remember....

    Drew Struzan did a teaser and theatrical poster for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, too. A shame he has since retired from movie poster art. His work was always my favorite.

    I also liked the final poster for Captain America. I'm not sure it's actually painted, but it still has the feeling of those kinds of "old school" poster art with its dynamic imagery.

    Different things can be thought or done in one way or another. Every person thinks or does anything according to it's own perception and it is a human nature.

    Excuse me if this has been asked already, but am I the only one who doesn't mind the numerous characters in Sonic the Hedgehog?

    I never hated them like some fans. Shadow was hardcore, Rouge was kinda cool, Gamma had a very sympathetic story, so did Omega, Cream was cute, Baze ended up being the coolest female, and Silver had a very interesting backstory. There were some lame characters though (Elise, Marine,)

    Oh yeah, I freaking love Big the Cat. He and Froggy are the only exceptions, though.
