I faced one of those arm-wrestling machines back in the day, but always feared they secretly wanted to tear my puny human arm off.Saw Scott Pilgrim, speaking of puny human. Great gaming and 16-bit aesthetics but man did I feel old watching that and wondering how I'm supposed to feel about the main characters.I think I'll enjoy it more on DVD (where it'll have a fun retro title menu, I'm sure) when I'm actually in the mood for fluffy nonsense (which I often am).Doesn't help I was more in the mood for The Expendables and opted in the other way (very different movies). Ultimately saw the Stallone flick btw, and it was violently nifty.
I saw the Expendables with my wife...after it was over she said "well I've seen my quota of violence for the year!"...I of course loved it...
I'm sorry that Scott Pilgrim didn't exactly fill the movie going need you were looking for, Atari. I hope I didn't steer you too wrongly, friend. :)But at least I'm going to be able to see the Expendables tomorrow afternoon with my father at the matinee. I bet I'm going to be wearing a smile the entire time!
Don't get me wrong, SPVTW is a great movie I had looked forward to seeing (big fan of Edgar Wright) and you can tell everybody had a great time making it (like Expendables, btw). But I ruined my experience, in a way, by going against my mood. It was cheery, when I needed blasty.I'm sure I'll get a bigger kick out of it on my meek home theater with a double-bill of King Of Kong or something.Anyway, dropped back in to wish you and your dad a great time at the movies with Sly and his merry action men.Stallone gave a series of reader mail Q&A on Ain't-It-Cool-News a few weeks back and it's obvious the guy just loves his fans, so it's hard not to love him back.

A blog concerning the gaming of the 1980's but I might speak a little about everything when the need arises.
