> I'll maybe rent that next time my girlfriend and I have a movie night. Although I think she has this Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind thing she wants me to watch.

Oh trust me, WALL-E is one of the best movies ever. If you look at it purely from an artistic perspective, it's beautiful. (And it's one of those movies where the pay-off is worth it)

And 'Eternal Sunshine'? Dude, can't go wrong with a Michael Gondry film. If you like that movie, I highly recommend 'Science of Sleep' and 'Be Kind, Rewind', both from the same director. What's so cool about his work is that he uses no CG whatsoever in his work, which is really prevalent in 'Science of Sleep'. (Plus any Gondry film is enough to score chick points, especially if they're the indie artsy types... well, excluding 'Dave Chappelle's Block Party', that is)

> Frankly I am starting to blame Alan Moore for this whole decompression era because Watchmen is decompressed.

You can blame Alan Moore (and Frank Miller) for a lot of things. I heard somewhere that Moore didn't anticipate 'Watchmen' ushering in the moral decay of superhero comics (which you can see a lot of these days in both the mainstream AND in the indies)... but I could be wrong there.

> Stan Lee would have done that in 3 Issues maximum, except he'd also have had some side stories going on with Thor fighting big robots from some alien dimensions.

Oh man. That'd almost be worth it.

> I think scans do have a point. Comics are so expensive that its nice to try before you buy. Also there might be something you never thought you would buy in a million years that you read online and just think - I like it. I always make a point of buying any title I like if I have read the scans.

Exactly. I tend to glance through the previews that are posted every few weeks. It really helps to get a feel for things rather than waste $2.99-3.99 on a dud of a book.

> Out of curiousity, did you ever get to watch the Lone Wolf & Cub movies? You said you like Kill Bill - they actually reference Shogun Assassin (the western name of the first two Lone Wolf & Cub movies - which were combined) in Kill Bill part two when the daughter is asked what movie she wants on. You might like them - personally I love them.

No, I haven't... but I'd love to. My dad and I both love Kill Bill, so I think that'd be something we'd both enjoy.
