He barely made an appearance the last time.

I think he doesn't much care for this stuff anymore.

girtha: Watched Ronin again, I liked it better this time but it still lacks the subsonics and brute force of V8 engines. The BMW and Pugeot definitely handle better than the older cars such as Mustang and MoPar products but Bullet and Gone in 60 SEconds have the deep throated roar that even turbocharged engines can't match. Ronin is a better _movie_ but testosterone votes for Bullet...

ah, well I have a testosterone deficiency...

I like the European roads element of Ronin.

The scene in Ronin isn't really about the muscle of the cars or the big vrooom noises - it's incredibly tense, it lasts FOREVER, it's in normal cars which gives it less an air of being a stunt, and it happens in the psychotic maelstrom of downtown Paris. This is so much MORE visceral to me than an over-turbo'd stunt movie.
Then again, I'm also on the other side of the chromosome gap...

(Man, I had forgotten how much I love Ronin...)

you wanna see stupid big engines, watch the opening scene of tokyo drift.
the rest of it is little japanese rice rockets, but the openening drag race scene isn't that long, but it's big engine.
I can't get too excited about engine noise in a movie, it's a movie. As was pointed out last week, "how did they get tires to screech on dirt in the dukes of hazzard?"
In real life I can appreciate a big noisy engine, but in a movie, the acrobatics of ronin win every time.

I thought I should comment some more on The Animation Show DVDs that I bought a while ago.

I've finished watching all of the animations now, and as expected, they're impressive.

I felt there were more animations on the first DVD of the set than the second.
But, perhaps most of the animations on the second set were longer.. I didn't check.

On the first set, there's this one animation executed as shadows of cukoos taking over England. The music for this animation is wonderful, as is the animation work itself (all black-and-white [no grey] until the very end).
Madcap, amusing, and toe-tapping.

Don Hertzfelt's contribution (aside from the introduction, ending, and intermission ones) involved the balloon violence I mentioned before. It's still amusing to me. Maybe I like that kind of Punch and Judy humor.. dunno.

Some of the animations I'd seen before through services like Youtube or the like, but are in much better quality on the DVD.
The Cathedral, I recall, I saw years ago and thought, "Wow... quite a bit of work went into this animation." It was nice to be able to see it more clearly... made it easier to see what was really going on.

Oh... now that I think of it, I am not sure I finished watching the Japanese animation. I should look at that again. Looked pretty strange.

Oh, there's an impressive claymation film in the bunch that involves a man in a sinister hospital. It's clear they have something unpleasant in mind for him, so he tries to escape. Easily the wildest wheelchair chase scene I've ever seen.

Here's a quick topic for discussion...

Can anyone name a movie for which cannibalism doesn't save it from being dull and uninteresting?

Omega Code- There's no cannibalism in that movie to save it.

Er... I was meaning that the movie does have cannibalism in it, but even that doesn't help save the movie.

For one person I know, Fried Green Tomatoes was saved by cannibalism.

Just watched "Little Miss Sunshine". It would have been better with explosions.

Any movie would be better with explosions. Even the ones that have explosions would be better with *more* explosions.

It also helps if helicopters are crashing, right?
