Most of the time we talk about video games. Some of the time we don't. Sometimes we talk about science, movies, pretty things and, in this post—an open thread—we talk about whatever.


Speaking of movies, I was a little surprised by the reaction to the way Andrew Garfield fills out a Spider-Man suit. As a long time Spidey fan who has seen Peter Parker transform from spindly geek to ripped super hero, lanky Garfield as the web-swinger seemed right to me. And brooding complaints? Teenagers brood, right? I know I did. Guess I'm not seeing what all the fuss is about.

I mean, did you see Spider-Man 3? Ugh. There's nowhere to go but up!

But we've probably talked about Spider-Man enough today. I'm still beaming from the very small selection of people complaining that the post wasn't video game related enough. Anyway! Here's some other stuff to love/hate on. Talk about stuff in the comments! Woo!

So I watched The Shining for the first time today. What a weird movie. I don't even know for sure if I enjoyed it. I'm just kinda... "What."

I also watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit. I can't believe I've never seen all of that movie in a proper sitting, such a great movie in terms of what it did with special effects and the coming together of so many big name cartoon names.

Tomorrow, I knock out Citizen Kane and possibly either Halo Legends or Spirited Away. Should be interesting.
