    That's right, embrace the spirit of the 21. century.

    It's probably his least known movie, which is a real shame. It's not as action-packed or polished visually as his later monster-budget movies, but in terms of composition and story, it's simply a masterpiece of cinema. All of his movies are great, so I don't mind which one people say is the best, but at least watch Memento damn it.

    Yeah... let's not go down that path. There's nothing but despair waiting for us.

    I thought he was funny, but I didn't watch that much, so he might bash everyone. Not that there are many critics I even consider above the "free to bash" threshold at this point anyway. That was probably it... he was with some obnoxious little twerp who was only there to try to make the iRate gamer seem smart and professorial in comparison. They went to the leaning tower of "Pizza." And repeated that joke... 5 times or something. It was worse than... well, pretty much anything.

    Right on the money there. It's a myopic solution to a serious problem.

    You're a super-villain, man. But hey, you need to make a few moral sacrifices to make sure you get those autographs.

    I just rewatched Memento last week. That's his magnum opus in my opinion, though all his movies are fantastic. (I've not seen his pre-fame feature The Following, but everything else.)

    Aye, that's one of the ten billion reasons why I prefer anime over cartoons.. :P

    The details aren't fleshed out yet. But science will find a way.

    Never seen anything in that installment, thankfully. I was watching a guy who reviews reviewers (pretty funny concept), and he had several episodes of the iRate gamer... he had a traveling show that was possibly the worst thing ever created. You can't even make a parody this stupid.

    Yup, intelligibility is key.

    That is a sad state of affairs, and your example is just bizarre. Don't take this as me being anti-academia or anything like that, I'm not, but it seems like a lot of degrees don't guarantee the same degree of knowledge they used to. I can't speak for other countries, but here education has taken a dive, requirements for grades going down to mask the decline in results and the prestige in having a degree slowly sinking. Doesn't apply across the board, and you're still of course much better off with a degree than without, but still.

    That does make me feel better. Always happy to spread the love.

    I knew you'd come prepared. I figured you might still need my tip, though. It's pretty much foolproof.

    Me neither. Looking forward to Dark Knight Rises, but that's about it..

    Got to love colors. Otherwise you're in trouble if you want to enjoy modern anime, that's for sure. I can imagine it being hard, I don't think I could come up with anything like that.

    They either have to take special courses to become nurses (generals and colonels can apply to become doctors and surgeons, respectively.) Executioners will have their place once euthanasia is legalized. Some people will want to go out with a bang, you know.

    Alright, sounds good to me man. The only thing about the iRate gamer I like is his name... it's actually a clever pun, but somehow I doubt he's the one who came up with it judging by the rest of his performances.

    European accents are a mixed bag, I find. Norwegians speaking English, especially if they're unfamiliar with it, sounds pretty horrible.. but it's usually at least intelligible. It can also lead to some very funny misunderstandings because the languages have many similarities, which are often overestimated by people who end up translating things too literally and getting at best something odd-sounding, and at worst an incoherent mess.

    Oh, wait, wow. He asked you because he didn't know? I thought it was to test you, haha. That's even worse. I don't know how anyone gets a job teaching without even the most rudimentary knowledge... that's actually sort of frightening.

    Oh. And here I was thinking I was going to wow you with my plan. My hubris knows no bounds.

    Certainly you cannot. You're probably fiscally responsible enough to handle it anyhow. Although I worry the moe might kill you. Just remember to look at the sweatiest, most obese guy close to you if you feel yourself overwhelmed by the cuteness and compelled to shop beyond your means.

    Yeah. I actually haven't seen a single movie in the theater so far this year. That's a tragedy.

    Oooh, nice progress. They're looking nice, detailed and unique. They really stand out. I'm not too concerned with fashion personally. It's fine if you want your clothing to make a statement, but it's just not something I'm too concerned with, at least not currently.

    Hey, science marches on man. Soon hospitals will be nothing more than sophisticated shooting ranges.

    I love how we live in a world where he gets paid.... at all. If anything, he should be fined for what he's doing. That's really cool that you're willing to wait. Just don't ever let me hold you back if you feel like diving in, that's the last thing I want.

    Well, you know, I might have embellished my part a little. I'm not Scottish or anything... that's like the Rolls Royce of accents.

    So... those are some weird questions. Spelling in science class? Why would whether they were flushed down the toilet affect whether their souls lived on (if you do indeed believe goldfish posses souls, that is)? Life, huh. I hope you taught him, because I really don't know what else to say about that one...

    I recommend a healthy mix of nicotine and methamphetamine for the first two months(or however long it keeps you awake), followed by a month of extreme withdrawal symptoms. After that, anything else you'll experience down there will feel like a breeze in comparison. Meth and cigs are pretty easy to pack too, so I'm really doing you a favor with this tidbit of advice.

    I bet. I'm sure there'll be a lot of cool stuff to get your hands on there. (Probably way too much for any non-millionaire to handle, but I'm sure you'll manage. :P)

    I hate wearing those glasses too, and like I've mentioned before, I got an eye condition that actually makes that increased darkness a nightmare to sit through. I don't even want to know what the next fad is going to be. The present is bad enough, don't make me imagine the future as well. I'll lose my marbles.

    I'm not fashionable myself. To say the least... but it looks cool to me. I think it will appeal to the target audience, and that's what matters. Real life fashion is such a cesspool anyway.

    Hey, I'm sure there are bullet wounds who did good out there. Don't be a... woundist? Maybe some guy had cancer and the bullet passed straight through the malignant tumor, tearing that bad-boy in half and saving the guy's life. That sounds plausible to me! If you're worried about your reputation, just go in costume when you perform the deed. It's a convention, it's the perfect place to disguise yourself without standing out! Then run into the bathroom and escape through your pre-dug hole. Just remember to dig the whole, that's the key.

    Red button... push.....move... Okay, got it! I can't wait to be the next iRate Gamer! We're going to have bananas falling on our heads, great jokes about animal dung, angry rants with poor grammar and no internal logic, the whole shebang! Now, as great as all that no doubt sounds to you, you might still want to find someone else, as it'll probably take me a little while to get my hands on a camera. Depending on how a couple of things pan out, I might even have to wait for my tax returns (two months from now, if the bureaucracy is to be trusted), so don't save yourself for me. Go out and have there and have fun! Then, when you're exhausted and tired of the bachelor life, I'll be there to exploit your vulnerability and pick you up on the rebound! Or at least have a one-night stand with you.

    I hope so. Maybe my, uhm, sexy accent and poor pronounciation and your rugged handsomeness can woo the internet! What sort of ludicrous questions are you asked? Just so you know, if the man asking them is in a windowless van, you probably shouldn't answer. There's never any candy... not even in the very back.

    Pack food for a couple of years. I had to skimp a little bit on the nuclear material, so the half-life will take a while.

    Not too hard to fix. :P

    If you're not even filming your movie in 3D and just adding the effects afterwards, it's all just smoke and mirrors. And even if you do film it in 3D, with the two cameras and everything, it's hardly worth the effort, and for me personally it's more of a deterrence than it is an enticement. I'd say I hope it goes away, but with the quality of current movies I honestly can't muster that much care either way.

    They're looking nice, I especially like the last one. I'm sure they're going to turn out great, and I'd love to take another look at them when they're all done.

    That's a lot of dedication, and a lot of money! But yeah, sounds like it's worth every penny. Handshake, huh... I was hoping you would rub your hand in melted chocolate and touch their faces, then press it against a piece of paper. That way I would get like an imprint that I could put on the wall. Coat both your hands in chocolate before you do it, since they'll probably increase security and there won't be a second chance.

    Pressing the button? Being in the middle of the frame!? You might as well be talking Swahili, because this is just technobabble to my ears! That does sound like something even I could handle. It would be fun to try, even if you do find someone else in the meantime, I could be like a guest at some point. What would a serviceable camera like that cost, ballpark figure?

    When it comes to my English, I'm far stronger when it comes to writing and understanding than I am speaking it. I'm not horrible at either, but I read and/or write English just about every day, but I very rarely get a chance to actually speak it... mostly just if I run into tourists or missionaries. :P

    That works for me. It's a trusty method. No need to get frisky at this point.

    That's a good option. Manga can move along a lot faster, and as your plan proves, it's more readily accessible when you're out and about.

    Yeah... modern filmmaking is just.. wow. I saw that they're playing Titanic 3D now too. I guess it's a new thing to just release old movies in 3D now? The trends for the last decade in horror movies has been remakes, remakes, remakes. No originality... and now we're taking a step down from even that and just releasing the same movie with some psuedo-3D effects added in post? What a joke.

    Oh, neat. Glad to hear it's moving along nicely. Make sure those characters so shiny and colorful that a prismatic spray will look gray in comparison. (Nerdy reference there...)

    It's her American debut too, huh? That ups the ante. That's quite a list, man... We might have socialized healthcare and one of the lowest crimerates in the world... but with guests like that, America might just be the better place to live. :P I've been loving Kitamura Eri lately (she's a blast in Street Fighter IV, pretty much the only reason I still play it.. :P), but there's not a name on that list that isn't worth seeing, that's for damn sure. Is it going to cost you a pretty penny to get down there? I'm sure it's worth it and will be a nice enough memory to justify it regardless, though. Oh, and if you do meet any of these wonderful ladies (also, Norio Wakamoto) be sure to touch them for me.

    Oh, that's a nice thought. I'd definitely consider it, though I don't have a camera at the moment, and I don't know jack about handling one, nor how hard that would be for something like this. I'd have no problem appearing on camera with you in theory, in fact, it sounds like it would be a lot of fun and a great challenge. But man, you're a sociable guy, you can easily find someone, be it IRL or online, that would be up for the task, I'm sure of it. Someone with a more comprehensive command of the English language than me would likely make for more compelling viewing also.

    Awesome. That gives me a lot more wiggle-room.

    I suppose it does. It was fantastically entertaining regardless.

    Thanks. I agree that it is a little sad to see him continue his reign of destruction, even when it's something I don't care too much about.

    Couldn't agree more. Love those colors, love that show. Dangle some colorful keys in front of my face and I'm 80% there already.

    Oh, that's cool. Will it be your first anime convention? That's a good choice for first guest, especially seeing how you liked Angel Beats so much. If Horie Yui or Hanazawa Kana does show up, I might just die from jealousy. >-< I live in a small country, so there's really only one anime-related convention going on here, and it's pretty much jam-packed with weeaboos, so not really an option for me.

    I like that idea. It's something that is rarely done, and it instantly gives the viewer more to relate to with two different perspectives. It's a cool concept, you should definitely run with it. Maybe you'll make some friends at the convention you could do it with, if you're lucky.

    For that wonderful pun, your race shall be spared.

    I thought it was very well done plot-wise too. Maybe a little too much dollars/yellow scarves focus, though. But yes, that is nitpicking, and it's just because the side-cast is so marvelous that I sometimes pine for even more of them instead.

    That's true. There's a tendency to conform, and that's pretty boring... you'll see that even counter-culture groups soon find themselves conforming to their own anti-conformism, so it's an endless cycle of boredom in that respect. I heard about that turtles-aliens thing. Though I don't care about the Turtles, it sounds pretty pointless and dumb. But that's his M.O.

    Oh, that's awesome. You're picking up some good stuff lately! That was one of my favorites from last year, a lovely romantic and charming installment. I loved the colors too, and the character designs blew me away. I've seen a lot of character designs and anime over the years, so it usually takes a lot to impress me beyond just liking it, but this one was just splendid. I don't know about the errors, upon checking I'm pretty sure I watched the Oyatsu release.

    Well, I don't want to toot my own horn too hard. It'll likely be two of the less numerous races... I might even have to settle for ethnicites instead.

    Be sure to send them out to radical political parties in your region as well. Those guys know how to stage a lynching and/or protest!

    I've heard a lot of people say that they focused on the wrong characters. I can sort of see what they're saying, but since the supporting cast was incredibly strong, it worked. The story was really tight as well, so I can't really find any reason to complain either.

    Almost any theme can work if it's handled appropriately, after all. Quoting Izaya here.. "Human are so interesting!" It's true, it's true. You could probably live a thousand years and still find people who would surprise you. For better or worse, of course. But in fiction there's no chance of a lead pipe to the back of your neck. At least not with current technology. By the way, you'll be sorry you messed with Lucas when the pre-prequels hit the scene. I think he's doing a collaboration with Micheal Bay on those. Lots of explosions, racist stereotypes and 4th grade jokes; look forward to it!
