Re: Coke or Pepsi?

Never liked cola of any type. I'll drink maybe 1-2 sodas a month, and the only thing I drink is Mountain Dew.

Re: Rank the Star Wars Films

Agree, that was a valid criticism of TFA. It was trying very hard to capture (at many times almost too closely) everything about ANH. It many many ways it succeeded, but for those intimately...

Re: Rank the Star Wars Films

I'm from the OT (Original Trilogy) generation of those who saw the films first-run in the theaters back in '77, so that will clearly drive my rankings.

Re: Hawaii traffic being a misconception

I think the issue of how bad it is on Oahu is relative to the distance traveled. In NOVA/DC it takes me 60-90 minutes but I am traveling 45-50 miles. It can take that long Ewa to K-Bay and it's...

Re: "The Walking Dead" on AMC

While it was an interesting view into the mind of the Governor, I'm leery of them portraying him as sympathetic. There are things that he has done that cannot be forgiven, no matter how he may...

Re: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

I'm a big Tolkien fan and loved it. Granted it did deviate from the book in places (as did LOTR), but I think the spirit of the book remained. Movie-wise I wasn't near as awe-struck as LOTR left me...

Re: The INXS Appreciation Thread

It's interesting how the transition from physical media (cassette tapes) to digital can change the structure of song.

Re: The Last Resort on ABC

Watched the pilot episode last night. It definitely has an interesting premise. This is one of those shows that if they are really going to do it well it has to have an endpoint. I can't see this...

Re: What are you currently reading?

Just finished the two-part techno-thriller series by Daniel Suarez (Daemon and Freedom). Very interesting read considering how "plugged in" the entire world is.

Re: "Alcatraz" on FOX

With over 300+ inmates and guards, clearly they have ample bodies to continue the series for a while (using the one name per episode formula). Its rather ambitious to keep us along for the ride that...

Re: Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

It always good to see a Star Wars movie the way it was intended....on the big screen.

Re: Da' Pidgin English Thread

None taken. I fully understand the definition of the word. Believe its most closely translated to "foreign".

Re: What are you currently reading?

Just finished the Hunger Games Trilogy last week. My wife convinced me to try them out after seeing the movie trailer. And since they were quick reads I figured I'd give 'em a shot.

Although it begs the question, if he was truly watching over the heiau,...
