    Re: What Have You Watched Recently?
     
    Let's see... over the past few days I've seen:
     
    Alice in Wonderland -- Not bad. Visually stunning with amazing green-screen sets and the like. Captures the inherent weirdness of Underland/Wonderland quite well.
     
    Brave -- I liked this a lot. While the trailers made me expect something far more action-heavy, what I did get was just fine. Oh, and visually? Just amazing. The landscapes, lighting, and other effects show Pixar at it's best.
     
    Conan the Barbarian -- Wow, this film was... was... not good. I never felt like I was watching something set in Conan's world... in fact, if you told me it was Scorpion King II or something, I'd have believed you. The costuming was pretty enh... there were plot holes galore... the fight choreography was kind silly (way too much sword spinning)... I could go on for a while.
     
    Dredd -- Starring Karl Urban as Judge Dredd. Okay, I'll admit, the Stallone film captured the visual style of the comics far better, but this movie really felt like a day in the life of Dredd. Urban never takes the helmet off, scowls through the whole film, states "I am the law", and generally acts a lot like you'd expect Dredd to act.
     
    The Princess and the Frog -- Disney returns to its 2-D animation roots and does it with a fun story as well as some nice, catchy music.

    I just finished viewing Dog Soldiers, a soldiers versus werewolves movie. I found it liked it at lot, parts made me laugh, parts made me shudder, and parts made me say "that's not right...." I highly recommend it.
     
    I also watched The Wizard of Oz over the weekend, for the first time. Rather fun, with some highly enjoyable sequences -- the flying monkeys were great! -- and the musical numbers are catchy. I also found it amusing to sort of "count" all the lines that have remained in popular use.

    Played in a Savage Rifts game at Genghis Con where my character informed a Coalition officer that the PCs were "just simple traders." He dubiously noted we didn't look like merchants, at which point I noted "that is because we deal in lead, my friend."

    Yar's Cosmic Supers Game
    In which 6 700-point PCs save the Earth from an alien invasion.
    (It's basically an excuse to learn the ins and outs of 6E combat and toss around lots of dice.)
     
    The Cast:
    Sidewinder -- power-armor and lots of weapons
    StarPower -- fire-using pop-singer
    Gravitas -- gravity manipulator
    Quantum Girl -- size changer, can go from a few inches in height to 100'
    Bedlam -- the Absorbing Man meets Plastic Man meets Elemento
    Force Majure -- basically Ultra Boy
     
    Bedlam (OOC): I'm unconscious, so I can only see the inside of my eyelids.
    Force Majure (OOC): I've seen you shape shift, I'm not sure you have eyelids.
     
    Force comments on the feasibility of a tactic: "Well, if it worked for Doctor Who."
     
    "The alternative press call [this form] Bondage Bedlam."
     
    "Oh look, there's a 50-foot woman lying on the ground!"
     
    Bedlam moves some miniatures: These guys are lying on top of one another.
    Force: I didn't need to know that.
     
    "The boots are made for squashing."
     
    GM: "I never thought I'd say this.... the [single] mook goes."
     
    "My brain Dodges."
     
    Bedlam responds to an incoming attack: "This is gonna hurt."
     
    StarPower to Quantum Girl: "What's with you and landing on people?"
     
    We discover the alien boss is vulnerable to sonics. So StarPower hacks into the PA system in order to sing it to death. It's suggested she sing "Never Going To Give You Up." The GM asks her to make a PS: Singer Roll. The result? A "3."
    "[starPower] just crited a rickroll!"
     
    The GM rolls a 10d6 Aid to all Characteristics, and gets... 19.
     
    Sidewinder on his ability to accomplish a task: "I will not make this roll!"
    He rolled... a 3.
     
    StarPower: "My General Ackbar senses are tingling... it's a trap!"
