Am I the only one that wouldn't have minded Jar Jar if he was played
and looked like the old sargeant Gungan instead... The gray one that
didn't say much.

It was the only thing I didn't see in the New Godzilla 2000 movie, I kept
for Godzilla to jump up into a crane stance, cameras pan around him to get a
at the bad monster's face, and then kick him real good...

I hated the bullet tracing you see in the preview for Art of War, but the
scene that
immmediately followed that was a lot like the subway scene from the Matrix
being over the top. That probably makes it one of my favorite gunfights,
right up with
the bar scene in Desperado... OF course I liked Wesley Snipes scenes in
Blade too..

The rest of the Matrix like scenes you see nowadays are crap, the ones in MI
2 were
very forced looking... John Woo created his own genre of gunfighting I wish
he would
stick with it...

The preview for Charlies Angels looks better to me than the entire MI 2 move
did, but
I'm sure when I sit through it for 2 hours I'll be sorely disappointed...
just like MI 2.
