    If I had any money, I’d give some of them to these guys.

    But nothing lasts forever anyway.

  • Rev

    Thanks for reading my Junk Mail regarding DVD sorting guys!
    In reply to Jay no i dont live in a 3rd world country I am from England and I am most certainly not Reed Farrington.
    Frank: I got the box set because it cost £3 and to buy the discs separately would have come to over £15 and money’s tight at the moment what with being a student and all.
    Greg: I got the ‘piece of shit’ from HMV haha.

    I´m swedish and I can confirm that Jay was correct.. Scandinavia is Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway.

  • Joe

    You guys make me wish I was born in St. Catharines several years earlier.

    I’ll be checking out 13 Assassins this weekend. I think the last decent ninja assassin movie I saw was… Ninja Assassin.

    Does anyone else here remember the arachnophobia DOS game? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Chdxb__NU8s

  • Woogy

    I’m from England, and can confirm that I was right first time. Scandinavia is officially Sweden, Denmark and Norway. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scandinavia

    The more general term, the Scandinavian Peninsula, does indeed include Finland. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scandinavian_Peninsula

  • It’s interesting that you guys (well, Frank for sure) disliked HP7 part 1 so much. I liked part 2 a lot, but so much of it felt rushed. I agree that Snape’s arc was well-done (the flashback in the pensieve was one of the best parts), but a lot of other things had no impact. When Bellatrix went down in the book, it was a big awesome moment. Pretty sure I threw the book down and yelled in glee. In the movie, it was just like, oh, so that happened. Same when you saw the twins after one was gone, and Remus and Tonks. My friends and I were talking after, and we all pretty much thought that Yates does a good job with the quiet, impactful character moments (which there were a lot of in part 1), but is pretty anticlimactic with more action-y moments that SHOULD hit you like a punch to the gut, but don’t.

    Totally right on the epilogue, though, that sucked in the book as well.
