      I wish I could watch RT videos on my PS3. I'm typing this on the PS web browser now, but none of the content plays. I hope that RT mobile ap they're working on finds its way to the PSN store. Until then, sucks to be me.

    • Top 10 Western Movies list

      2 years ago

      Nakatomi

      A coworker friend and myself have been discussing movies lately and we came to a decision to discuss Westerns today. I put together what I would say is my Top 10 list.


      The list is flexible, and subject to change, but higher up means higher ranked (i.e. top 1, bottom 10).

      The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
      Quigley Down Under
      Outlaw Josey Wales
      Magnificent Seven
      Lonesome Dove
      Duck You Sucker!
      Butch and Sundance
      Open Range
      3:10 to Yuma (C. Bale, R. Crowe version)
      The Professionals (Lee Marvin)

      With honorable mention going to the TNT original movie: Purgatory, A Fistful of Dollars, and Australia (N. Kidman, H. Jackman 2008).

      (not counting comedies or musicals, just standard Westerns)

      Thoughts? Comments?

      Yes, I know there are tons of others and yes I think there are plenty of really great movies, but if I were pushed to elevate 10 of them to a higher pedstal of praise, those others don't quite reach this higher level.

    • One of those odd things...

      I watch a lot of movies. I have always done so. I've seen a lot and sometimes I forget the name of a movie but can remember most of it quite clearly. I don't have encyclopedic knowledge but I'm pretty good once I've seen something.

      For the longest time I got it into my head that the horrible Alien knockoff, "Leviathan" was the name of this movie I saw. It wasn't all that great a movie. It was basically rehashed from content you've already seen. For a few years, at least, I thought this one movie was Leviathan, and hearing comments and reading reviews it all seemed to reinfoce my notion. Then I decided to be nostalgic and watch it again.

      Whoa! This isn't the movie I was thinking about! Then.... What was?

      That thought followed me on and off for many a year. In fact probably nigh on 10 years. I don't mean I've been obsessing, but it's one of those long long term things that just keeps popping up.

      2 nights ago I found it. Yes, I'm ashamed now since it and Leviathan are nothing alike.Care to guess what it was?



      Wait for it....



      "Deep Star Six" was the name of the movie. You may have seen it. If not? Don't bother. You aren't missing much other than a cliched early 80's style movie. However, it's really satisfying to have that years-long curiousity satisfied.

      It's just one of those odd feelings, you know? Oh well, back to the grind for me...

      I chuckled way too long over this one:

      In semi-sci-fi related news, the Delorean company (yes... THEM) are offering a newly built version of the Delorean as an electric car. It is listed as going 125mph and having a 70 mi range (if I recall) before recharging. No Mr. Fusion required!

      gameing is divided into genras hence the RTS and FPS tittles, what I was saying is we should stop bickering on what is better and focus on helping eachother in each thing.

      It's like the old ones, but Adrians dead, and he is older. There is the motivation, the training, and the fight, He dosn't really get beaten to a pulp, but u have to see it.

      Thanks, 4pies, but I get the same error. I guess I'd have to upgrade my .net software in Windows, but I didn't want to do that. Thanks for the help, though.

      Download this one. You don't have to install anything, just unzip it and it's a little .exe file.

      Yep, I loved OpFor, when it was new. However, it seems that Portal is pretty far past HL1 and OpFor, just considering the sophistication of the technology and the control they have. Remember that one level in OpFor when you used the portal gun to get supplies, and it would kill you? Your death was listed as "portal related malfunction" or whatever. Boy, I can't wait for Portal (oh, yes, and Ep2!)

      Cool. The X1950 is one of the latest ATI cards, I believe. It should give you plenty of bang for the buck. I've not hear much about that card, but what I have heard is good. Especially when Nvidia's top-of-the-line are $600 or so.

    • Strider165

      I'm looking at mid range. $200-$250 dollars for a card approx. I may go with the Radeon X1950 Pro. Haven't made the final decision though yet.
