    "Now Showing"

    Re: "Now Showing" The original script touched a lot more on Stark's alcoholism (as was hinted at throughout Iron Man 2), but Disney rejected the first draft and made them remove the sub-plot: That's Disney having their hands all over the film.

    The Change: Parks going down-hill/up-hill

    I think Disneyland Paris has been getting steadily worse in recent years. The vast majority of the guests seem to have no regard for other people and the staff seem too fed up and lazy to actually bother inforcing the rules (anyone who takes flash photos on Pirates of the Caribbean needs to go...

    The Games we play...

    Limbo is one of the worst downloadable games I've played this generation. I don't understand how it reviewed so well. It's a broken platformer, the visuals get old after the first half an hour (the spider bit is the only properly atmospheric section) and the puzzles are designed to screw you...

    You'd be surprised: Countdown honchos tell Rachel Riley to stop dressing so darn sexy So no more skimpy dresses, it seems.

    Gigs 'n' Tours

    I was at that Joan Rivers gig! Third row from the front, slap-bang in the middle, absolutly terrifying. The support were pretty good too, especially the song about Nando's.

    Alton Towers - Updated LTDP

    I hope they renovate the flume rather than removing it completely. If it were a bit smoother it'd be one of the best flumes I've been on. It's also the most terrifying. *QUACK*

    The Games we play...

    I imagine the next evolution of the 3DS (ie: 3DS-2) would have a second stick included as standard if it really required it. The 3DS XL isn't that console. As the name suggests, it's a 3DS but bigger. The control layout had to stay the same to ensure that 3DS games would be equally as playable...

    Because it's an optional extra that the bare minimum of games use.

    The Games we play...

    You might not like it, but to say it's crap is insane. And the "It's the same game again" argument rather annoys me about Ocarina of Time. The 3DS version is a remake, like REmake back on the Gamecube, or Halo: Anniversary last year. The Gamecube discs featuring the original N64 version (which...

    The TV we watch...

    The first season is probably the best. They ruin Chang's character in season 2, and it takes them until the end of season 3 to get him even close to as good an antagonist as he was as the crazy Chinese Spanish teacher. The Dean is amazing, though. There's a few stand-alone episodes in season 3...

    "Now Showing"

    Re: "Now Showing" Batman Begins > The Dark Knight Rises > The Dark Knight Hathaway is lush. Thought the pacing was much better in TDKR than it was in TDK. Despite being longer than TDK there was no awkward "when will this be over? Oh, there's another villain to take care of yet" moment.

    Favorite dark ride shooters

    Yes! The ride itself is great, but the building is poorly thought out. The train goes straight through the queue :s Strangely vague lasers, too (I guess to make it more accessible for the kids). Love the animatronics on it. I still think Buzz Lightyear's Laser Blast at Disneyland Paris is my...

    How many death creds do you have?

    The only death credit worth mentioning: Scariest ride ever According to the coasterforce list the only other death cred I've got is the Rock n' Roller Coaster (at Disneyland Paris).

    Coasterforce's view on Dubstep

    I think this conveys everything I think about Dubstep much more eloquently than I could ever put it.
