Theresa with the Faint Smile was off the hook.  Shame what happened to her, though...but the series (already intense) picks up even more after the Theresa eps!  The REAL Voracious Eater is ridiculous!

STILL haven't watched Dead Space, but I'm about 5 episodes into Claymore and it's the TRUTH.  The ep with the voracious eater was really good.  My only pet peeve...the kid.  He annoys the hell outta me, but other than that, I really dig it.

You just getting to the good part...Teresa of the Faint Smile...

I'm still loving the Claymore series!  I think this is a rare one, for me, that is MUCH better subtitled than dubbed.

I know its old news, but I found that I liked Cowboy Bebop a lot better with the dubbed voices.  That's the only Anime I can say that about.

I'll pick up Black Lagoon as soon as I can find a complete season pack.

I'm digging Black Lagoon, I got the Second Barrage a couple months ago and I've seen the first 5 or 6 eps.  I'm tearing through Claymore right now and I'm about halfway through it.  Has anyone seen Straight Jacket? I saw a little something about it online, but I haven't seen the OVA yet.

I've started and restarted Dead Space 4 or 5 times.  I pick the most inopportune times to watch it....2 - 3AM and I end up falling asleep on it.  I can tell you it's gory...real gory, but I like it.  I'm going to try and finish it today sometime while hiding from my in-laws!

Success, Guiseppi!!  I finished Dead Space and Claymore today.  Dead Space was pretty good and I absolutely love Claymore...even though Raki got on my last nerve!  There has to be a sequel...the way it ended with Easley and Priscilla...and with the partially awakened Claymores...there's too much there to leave on the table.

Did you think DS could have been made into a live action series/sci-fi thriller if it had a little more filler?

I definitely think DS could have been a live action movie, but the method of conversion and the derelict spaceship just SCREAMS "Alien Ripoff".  Although I liked it, it's little more than a 90 minute advert for the game and the ending compounds that.  MM, if anything, I think playing the game probably makes you want to see the movie than, vice versa.

Can't argue with the logic there Togo, but I was intrigued by the space rock being a religious symbol worshipped by humans and a powerful organized religion pulling strings behind the scenes to get this thing to earth. I also wanted to know why the creatures were held at bay when the female hid in front of the object

I'm assuming that all of that will be addressed in the video game itself.  Like I said, this was a prelude to the game...the movie ends exactly where the game begins, so I have to believe the rock plays a big part somewhere in the game.  I haven't been playing it since I got Gears of War 2 (beat it...it was great) but when I get back to Atlanta, I'll probably pick it up again.

How's that Gears of War II looking? I got the first one and liked it...reminded me of resistance fall of man (which I also liked) I have been waiting for the Arkham Asylum joint to come out though and I have hesistated to buy the Mortal Kombat vs DC game until I get some reviews
