I voted yes in hopes that I'd try out WoW. Then I remembered the longest I've ever played a PIG for is 3 weeks (CoH). I couldn't even be bothered to use up my first free month with any of 'em.

"The Incredibles" is love.

Agree.  Just saw it this afternoon.  Fantastic action sequences, Jason Lee is brilliant, and the premise is executed perfectly.

That said, the short before the movie ("Boundin'") was a poor choice.  Didn't like it at all.  Also, "Cars" isn't really grabbing me very well.  Seems kind of below Pixar standards...though I will grant that the teaser trailer for "The Incredibles" was lackluster as well.

The writing in "The Incredibles" is extremely sharp.  They use the comic book and James Bond conventions wonderfully.  The action sequences are often quite brilliant and the animation is stunning.  I can hardly think of something to criticize about the movie.

I also saw Incredibles tonight. Great movie.

Little tip though: don't bother staying through the credits for the "outtakes" -- there aren't any.

Dood.

I concur about Incredibles.  Brad Bird+ Pixar= Love.    My favorite Pixar thus far.  Highly recommended. There was one character who I wish was in it a wee bit more, but other than that, love.

As to WoW, I'm still trying to figure out whether it's a game I don't like that has some good things that make it just interesting enough to keep playing, or if it's a game I like with some things I hate that aren't quite enough to make me stop playing.  I still realllly dislike the graphics style.  I'm still impressed by Blizzard, as always, being thoughtful and thorough about polish, if not perhaps innovation.  I know with a certainty I won't be buying the retail version, but the stress beta remains interesting enough to continue for now.

In gaming news, I bought Ultra Bust-A-Move today. My local EB had it, but Gamestop.com shows it as not shipping until next week. Budget titles get no love.

Anyway, once you other people buy it, let me know. If there are several of you, I'll use my Live trial and we can set up some matches.

Played some of Halo 2 last night (omg warez i sukk) and one thing that struck me about it was that it was Halo. And I mean Halo. Exactly the same gameplay, enemies, weapons, with prettier graphics and this time the locations are different. Definitely some cool moments and nice visuals, but with all the flaws of Halo in there. For instance the times where you run into a number of bad guys that take you over 20 retries to get past without dying, are still present.

The suit recharges a lot faster though, which is nice. Also, the ability to dual-wield two weapons at the same time. And Bungie has made sure Halo 2 is a much more cinematic experience.

I've had a few dreams where Danny Glover has made a cameo appearance -always in the oddest capacities. Like, for instance, the other night Elvis Costello, Danny Glover, and my best friend from childhood were holding a jam session on an apartment building fire escape. Odd.

Loved loved LOVED The Incredibles. My husband and I want to go see it again. And I hated the short before the movie. My favorite pre-Pixar-movie short is the birds on the wire.

Yeah, I agree with Caryn, the short before Incredibles (have you gone to see it yet?  It's awesome.  Go! Shoo!) "Boundin" was weak.  I didn't hate it, it had a few cute moments, but definitely not the best of the Pixar shorts.  I plan to see Incredibles with another group of friends this afternoon.

Agreed.  COH has been my favorite so far, but even then I only played for 1.5 months.  Too much work for so little return.

You might mean this as a negative, but I'm taking it as a positive.

That's not a spoiler, that's a public service. There's nothing to make you feel more stupid then when you tell your friends "wait! There's outtakes!", and you sit there half in and out of your chairs watching names scroll by, and no outtakes appear.

I saw the Incredibles and liked it (and I guess I'm the only person that liked the 'Boundin' short) though there were somethings I was a little uncomfortable with (it was a little too Ann Rayndian at times for my taste).  

Pixar is still batting 1.000

Jeet, I'm still messing with WoW a bit.  Turning into a bear is fun.  I got off of the initial Night Elf island.  But I'm already kind of not very interested in the next land area, I think I'm going to hop on a ship and skip it.  I really with the minimap were better.  I waste a goodly bit of time finding things that there's no reason not to just mark on the map.  Alternatively, I'd be willing to buy a map in-game, a sort of "Welcome to the new town" guide sort of thing.

Matt, (**some spoilers**)

The Invincibles almost comes off as an animated version of The Fountainhead, where the brilliant talents of the protaganist are hindered by "the hostility of second-hand souls".  The Invincibles are greater people forced into living the lives of ordinary citizens.  Mr Incredible, at one point, sighs, "They keep finding new ways to celebrate mediocrity."

Also, the Villain (born unextrodinary and must create artificial things to make him seem better than he is) has an evil plan to give superpowers to everybody in the world saying that we everybody becomes special, nobody will be.  The idea of leveling the playing field being the greatest sin echoes Rand's many attacks on Communism's attempt to do the same.

The movie, like Rand, argues that the worst thing the world can do is hinder the extrodinary and the anti-elitist in me bristles a bit at that.

S'right
