Worked for me. It's about people dressing up as pirates when they were gonna hear a sea captain give a speech. They didn't realize he was held hostage for several weeks by... Somali pirates...

Weird, I tried it at least three times and it was to a dead site.

They'll keep making Iron-Man and X-Man movies until they run out of material to mine from the comic books or they stop making money on them.

So far, most of the recent crop of Comic-Book-based movies have been pretty good if you're looking at them as comic books and not standalone movies. As standalone tales, some of them are better than others.

The only glaringly bad decision in any of them, for me, is the decision to cast Halle Berry as Storm/Ororo. Even an unknown would have been better than a woman who could in no way embody the physical characteristics and attitude of the character, even *if* she is a "name".

ugh. X-Men. Not Man.

I admit, however, that I did not see The Green Lantern because I heard it sucked if you are comic-geeky. See above opinion on casting Halle Berry as Storm/Ororo to determine if I am comic-geeky.

I find Halle Berry to be beautiful but not very bright and certainly not talented. Just competent at best. But beautiful for sure.

AND the way she trashed her child's father after they split turned me against her big time.

You know, there already was a movie made called the Great Gatsby with Robert Redford. sometimes in the mid-'70s. You guys probably weren't even born.
Some of the remakes are just brutal....i saw, Bye Bye Birdie....with George from Seinfeld and ...wait....Vanessa Williams as a couple....some movie's are too good in the original, and don't need remade, eh?.....

I didn't see that, but I Loved a comedian's take on it, telling her character: "You need a new life? Need an income? YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL. GO BE A MODEL." It cracked me up.

I have seen her in a couple of movies (including Losing Isaiah) and just thought she was meh, maybe okay.

Right. Not allowing anyone to own a firearm is the answer. Worked pretty well in Chicago didn't it? Never any shootings there.

Wow, you just can't get it, can you? No surprise...

Whoa there, she can't grasp that concept. She doesn't comprehend the millions of gun owners who don't go on shooting sprees.

Nope, it's not like that at all. But you go ahead and keep making silly comparisons, it's amusing in a "bucket on a kid's head" kind of way.

Hundreds of thousands of people DWI every weekend and don't get in an accident, let's drop BAC limits.

Millions of people disobey the speed limit every day. Let's drop speed limits.

Millions of people drive every day without wearing a seatbelt and they don't get in an accident. Let's get rid of seatbelts.

Each of those arguments is just as silly as yours and equally invalid.
