Tangled. By far the worst P.O.S I've ever seen in my entire life. I've seen the original D&D movie, All the Scary Movie clones, and none of them come close to that level of suck. There was a guy that owned a Comic store in my town that would chase out people that loitered during MtG games with that movie. It made hardcore MtG plays drop their cards and flee.
And yet I thought Tangled (the animated one) was a great movie.
I thought Pale Rider was in the Man With No Name trilogy, and the Dollars movies were in a separate trilogy.
I'm a bit disappointed. There were some really good storylines going on in the DC universe. The Detective Comics storyline with Jim Gordon's son was excellent, and Legion of Superheroes had to cut short a good story involving the Legion of Supervillains.
I can understand that a reboot can simplify things for them, but most of the story canon problems they were suffering were self-inflicted by writers that wanted to bring back pre-crisis characters and stories. Justice Society was great for referencing old stories without complicating their other titles too much, and I don't know if they can do that in the new lineup. We'll see.
As far as the bat-books go, why did they keep Damien? I hated his character from the very beginning until now, and I can't see why they would keep him as Robin if they are rebooting the title. I hope Stephanie stays around as Spoiler since she's one of my favorite supporting characters in the bat-universe. I like her as Bat-girl, but she was around in Robin for a long time before that.

I don't particularly care for the faction mechanics. I participate in faction missions, but even if I didn't I don't see how that would prevent you from completing your missions. It would be more likely that an enthusiastic faction missioner could prevent you from completing your mission due to competing goals.
Aside from trust points, I have a few small issues.
On the balcony where the executions take place, it says that the west block 2nd level cells have a full view of this balcony. When you get to the 2nd level, it says that the cells don't have any windows and that's why the smoke from the fire killed the prisoners. Also, the description of the cellblock says open cells are marked with an X on the map (they are not).
The guards may not have gone back in time to save the warden's wife, but surely they would have at least retreived her body (and the bodies of the prisoners on level 2).
The Town Hall fire seems like a potential TPK, and where exactly are the lanterns on the map? The meeting hall description says they are marked on the map, but they are not.
Overall, I liked this adventure a lot, but there could be improvements, and it seems to require a lot of GM work to fix some issues.
Yes, that's it exactly. I like both 4E and Pathfinder, but WotC has certainly made a few missteps.
Dicehead SIEGE has a lot more miniature gaming.
I was at CON-Nooga, and played in one of the Pathfinder games. It was a lot of fun, but now, unfortunately, the closest Pathfinder Society games are in Atlanta.

Amelia is a great companion, but she's no Martha Jones.
Didn't David Tennant take up two regenerations? Remember when he got shot by the Dalek and used the hand from his previous regeneration to keep his appearance? That still counts as a regeneration if I'm not mistaken. It did result in two David Tennant Doctors, after all, even if one of them only had one heart.

S&S stands for Sword and Sorcery (It is the Dungeons and Dragons line run by White Wolf for 3.0/3.5). Necromancer Games published some books through them. Clark Peterson is one of the guys who owns Necromancer Games.
Just watched Episode 1 of Rome - they had separate gods of doors (Fortculis) and locks/hinges (don't remember the name).
Rome had a lot of minor gods. For example: Edusa - The goddess who guarded over children as they learned to eat solid foods. Not to be confused with Edesia -The goddess of Banquets. Also Spiniensis - The god prayed to when removing thorny bushes.
Taken from the Wikipedia list of Roman deities.
Right now I'm reading Torchwood: Skypoint by Phil Ford, and Robots Have No Tails by Henry Kuttner. After that, my reading list is:
After being disappointed by both Batman: R.I.P. and Final Crisis, and taking into account my complete dislike of the character of Damien "Wayne", I have cut down on my Batman related collecting. I'm still collecting Batman Confidential and Superman/Batman (both of which still feature Bruce Wayne), along with Detective Comics (featuring the new Batwoman). No Batman, and certainly no Batman and Robin.
Batwoman is awesome, but I think I like the new Question better. On a related note: Harvey Bullock is back on the police force (see The Question: The Five Books of Blood, and Battle for the Cowl: Comissioner Gordon). I guess it's hard to recruit in Gotham these days.
Final Crisis had lots of potential, and some interesting storylines. The problem was that it was spread out over several different storylines, and the main one only touched on each one briefly. It was very confusing unless you read all of them.
Spoiler:, Legion of 3 Worlds, and Superman in 3-D.
Vandal Savage is Cain
Overall, it ended up being a bit too ambitious and fell flat. I was disappointed in Infinite Crisis too.

I don't think it was ever confirmed that those were his personal apprentices. Palpatine killed his master (Darth Plagus, I believe), and Anakin was apprentice to Obi-wan (and Darth Sideous aka Palpatine). As for the eyes, if Palpatine could hide them (in front of the Jedi Council)why couldn't Yoda (who is older than Palpatine than quite a bit)?
Also check out:Dominion: Tank Police
Project A-ko, Ranma1/2
Ok. Those are all old anime, but they are still good (IMHO).
Ok then. Kari and Jamie in chainmail bikinis. :P
