Lots of little things bugged me about the movie. I had wondered where the goats came from, but what really got me was Thandruil having an army of golden armored bowmen, and yet when he is leaving dale none of the elves behind him had any gold armour..
lots of little things jarred it for me.
but Legolas CGI specials were the worst. I actually groaned out loud in a crowded theatre when i saw one particular sequence.
Overall, I'll rate it 7/10 for its mindless entertainment value, far better than any of the star wars prequels but just as guilty in its overuse of CGI.
I was just curious what peoples favorite sci fiction/fantasy cartoons from the 1970/80's were. For me, my prime formative years and influenced my tastes into Adulthood.
In terms of my favorite 10:
1. Star Blazers
The strangest thing I have read in this thread so far is someone who noted they avoid using James Jacobs adventures, for me Smuggler's Shiv is the only really good aventure in the Serpents skull AP. To each his own I guess.
For Mummy's Mask, I do agree the the OP. I forsee my group wanting to be foreign Treasure seekers..Adventure 1 setps that up great..but why the blazes would they go risking their life by going into the desert to stop a cult from raising an ancient Pharoah. They would be more likely to get on the first boat back to Absolom.
In that respect, I still like the setup from the Desert of Desolation series..you are ordered on pain of death to go into the desert to stop some raiders. If you succed or fail is irrelevant. You are foreigners and are expendable and are just proof the khan is doing something about the raiders.
Lilacor is the key..I do also remember giving a flail to Jaheiera (flail of ages)..but Lilacor was the main weapon which took the golem out.
FLT:"In the Winter of 1969, an elite force of the US Army was sent on a top secret assignment in Southeast Vietnam. The objective: rescue Sgt. Four Leaf Tayback from a heavily guarded NVA Prison Camp. The mission was considered to be near-suicide. Of the ten men sent, four returned. Of those four, three wrote books about what happened. Of those three, two were published. And of those two, only one got a movie deal. This is the story of the men who attempted to make that movie. "
That is exactly what much of Feast of Crows was for..showing the massive carnage war caused on the common people..hence lots of time spent on the grwoing number of Sparrows and why the Church is becoming stronger..the nobility won't care for the common people, but the church does.
Is it wrong that I read this thread now to see how many of Magnuskn's players show up as opposed to hear about the damage output? 4-5 seems to be the median but he has been getting a few 6 player sessions which sounds awesome (when I last Dm'd I had 5 players but usually could only rely on 3 every friday.
Ben Hur is and will always likely be one of my top 10 films that I have ever seen. In fact it is probibly number 2 or 3 behind Star Wars and Empire.
For the last quote, well the first 3 quotes were all Heston films and so was it, although it is not as well known. Its like being a Mark Hamill fan and forgetting he did Corvette Summer.
C:"Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death. "
This is almost the easiest I've lobbe dout, but no one has done this movie yet:
DT:"Ocean's dying, plankton's dying... it's people. *SG is made out of people.* They're making our food out of people. Next thing they'll be breeding us like cattle for food. You've gotta tell them. You've gotta tell them! "
In 2nd ed, you just started to find librams of gainful conjuration around 6 or 7th lvel, but the killer was holding onto them until 11th lvl or otherwise you were wasting them..
If anyone think I am exaggerating..Desert of desolation series I3-5
possible pick ups
1. libram of Gainful conjuration =2 (I4, I5)
not to mention tome of cleart thought and tome of bodily health (I5).
F: I told my wife I wouldn't drink tonight. Besides, I got a big day tomorrow. You guys have a great time.
CS: A big day? Doing what?
F: Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.
RB: Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's vagina.
VC: No, there's no way that's correct.
RB: I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.
VC: Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?
RB: No. No.
VC: No, that's - that's what it means. Really.
RB: Agree to disagree.
H:"I wasn't like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot. "
S;"Well gentlemen, now that the moment has come to bid you farewell, I congratulate both you, Doctor, and you, Professor, on your brilliant work in the development of the submarine tracking system. Thanks primarily to you, I am happy to say that the first phase of our operation has met with considerable success. I have instructed my assistant to have paid into your Swiss bank accounts the sum of ten million dollars each. "
P;" Mr. M, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. "
MG:"You like THAT old man? You want a piece of ME? "
T:"All you ever talk about is becoming a pro hockey player, but there's a problem: you're not any good"

Taylor vaughn:"Careful of what? OK, I could win this thing in flourescent lighting, on the first day of my period, cloaked in T.J. Max. Ok? My mother was prom queen in '71, my cousin - prom queen in '82, and my sister would have been prom queen in '94 if it wasn't for that scam on the Conway Bed tour bus, okay? I am a g@&@!&n legacy, all right? And besides, not to be a b%@*%, but who's gonna beat Taylor Vaughan? "
LB:"I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. You know, except for the whole hooker thing"
B:"My whole life, I've taken crap because I'm part Pilgrim. And I don't know why. "
I am going to read Skin Game again tonight, and no one can stop me..
I mean, the first read through was so fast I am realizing I might have missed some hints..
For those wondering about how Lashciel knew about a certain parasite, well Dresden talked to Murphy about it and Nick's shadow could have overheard.
Again correct on all 3 of mine.
Heres a great movie I don't think has been quoted yet:
JB:"All I know is, this Lo Pan character comes out of thin air in the middle of a g$~&n alley while his buddies are flying around on wires cutting everybody to shreds, and he just stands there waiting for me to drive my truck straight through him with *light* coming out of his mouth!"
