  1. The Batman Begins thing, Does Not Work.

    • Agreed, I thought it was terrible.

  2. You know IIMO I think the lens flare for Star Wars won’t be that bad. I think it will give the movie a nice little touch.

    • I thought that Star Wars short fan-film was actually pretty cool!

      • Me too. That one’s right up there with Contract of Evil on my favorite fan films list.

  3. Louisville SLuggers are made in Louisville kentucky. not Missouri

  4. The batman trailer is edited really well

    • i agree

      • Well, some parts were. I hated how the music was too loud in places, cut out suddenly (and in one case, was blatantly muted for a short time) and didn’t seem to suit, especially the last song.

        Plus the trailer wasn’t very funny.

  5. Ya know. That Star Wars duel was better than any duel in the prequel trilogy.
    And the rock throwing was about a million times better than the earthbending in the Last Airbender movie.

  6. Bullsh*t! Michael Myers is WAY better than Jason Voorhies!

  7. My apologies for the profanity.

  8. The new Cinefix guy is much better.

  9. As long as poets continue to write poetry new
    ones will be created to categorize the person’s poems. Friendship Collection: a beautiful selection of friendship audio poems to share with your closest friends. Remember fall in love poems should say the exact thing you feel without hesitation and fear of being embarrassed, either you write fall in love poems yourself or choose from the famous fall in love poems.

  10. If you find it a bit maddening to follow the daily fluctuations of the scale
    even though you are eating properly, pick three days of the week on
    which you will always weigh yourself (for example, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).
    It’s old news that tracking food intake could lead to
    losing a few pounds [2]. That way, the actual process will end up being much less frustrating and,
    for the majority of people, enjoyable.
