And probably a Christmas special. This is gonna be a busy holiday.
    THOU ARTST FORGIVEN.

    And, yeah, I think the review you wrote is actually pretty to the point.

    And, yeah, you better write a favorable review of The Fighter. Liked that movie a lot. :qmickey:

    Meaning you can see elements of the original that they fleshed out while, keeping a similar movie.

    Am I the only one who felt like the script was written right after the original film, but the studio only got the cash to make it a year or two ago?

    P.S. They referenced WiFi, but not the internet?!

    Because compared to the Game Grid the internet is a toy.

    The movie sucked.
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    I admit they made good use of flat and gloss blacks. Nice transparencies and reflections but... the fights were only cool if you like gymkata and pure fantasy in your ass kicking.
