Portable Games / Re: DS or PSP - The Poll

Neither of them have libraries that are convincing enough for me to want either at the moment, which is especially sad on the DS side, since they've had about a 5 or 6 month head start to build up a library and still the only game worth playing is a 9-year-old port of an N64 launch game.

I'll probably be getting a PSP after they lower the price (which I'd assume would be before Christmas) and hopefully get some more worthwhile games, as I'm only slightly interested in Lumines and Metal Gear Acid at this point.

The game doesn't look very good to me right now, but it's being developed by Intelligent Systems, so I have no fear that it will be a decent game by the time it's released, which is November 7th according to gamespot.

Movies / Re: Sin City

I saw this flick opening night with pretty low expectations (or as low as I could force myself to make them I was really excited about this movie) and I was thoroughly blown away.

I knew the style was going to be great, but I didn't know it would work as well as it did. The setting was a perfect mix of fantasy and realism. The characters Frank Miller puts in that setting are all way cool. All the acting jobs were top-notch minus Michael Madsen, who really disappointed me (He was A+ in Kill Bill, but every line he delivered in this movie made me embarrassed for him).

What surprised me the most was how much I loved the story and structure. I've never read the graphic novels, but I have some friends that have and they each said the movie matched up perfectly with the books (it should have, they used frames from the books for each of their storyboards).

I was also surprised by the level of violence, but I'm sure I wouldn't have been if I had read the books. But even the ultraviolence is portrayed in a very cool and unreal way that each time either made me exclaim "WOW" or burst out in laughter.

Sin City may very well be my new favorite movie. I'll have to watch it a few more times after it comes out on video to be sure.

If you can handle the subject matter, I'd recommend this movie to anyone.
