Gears of War II was one of the best games I've played on 360...lots of different scenarios and a good bit of atmosphere, especially in the underground levels.  I'm waiting on that Arkham game, too...but I did get the MK v. DC game, just haven't had a chance to play it yet.  If you liked the first Gears, you'll love this one, too...the last boss isn't nearly as hard as the last one in part one, but the sub bosses are a little tougher.

I just got Ghost in the Shell 2.0, the remastering/redo version blu ray from japan.  Some of the squences were redone in CGI, the sound was remixed to HD 6.1.  1080 picture.  Looks very nice.  To bad japanese blu rays are 60$.  Bah...

I like them both, but I'll give a slight edge to the Venture Bros!


They show Black Lagoon every night on Starz if anyone is interested.

Night Head Genesis is bleh, 2 brothers that seem to be a lil TOO close and too affectionate for my taste.  As for Red Garden it was about some  undead modeling agency my roommate says.  Rent them first man.

you're right Marv the synopsis on night head did seem a little too gay but the graphics looked alright, the way I understood Red Garden was that the three girls are schoolgirls who are undead and must fight other undead monsters in order to have the chance to live again or they remain undead it sounded a little too much like GANTZ to me and RG is put out by madhouse. Skip Babylon AD...it should have went straight to Spike TV, after being off the scene for awhile you would have thought Dim Viesel would have taken some acting lessons! The movie has the great Michelle Yeoh in it but you would never know that she is a martial arts legend by the way they chopped her fight scenes to bits you see the beginning or end of her movements seldom the entire kick or punch, the movie is long and you don't find out what the girl is until 3/4s of the way through and amazingly Dim is able to take out two stealth bomber type planes on a ski mobile!
