You would be surprised...maybe not Gordon Gekko, but sort of Gordon Gekko lite. I'm not trying to seem cool or important, I'm...

Was seriously quality. The plot twists...twisted, and were surprising. The acting was universally great, especially Waits and Ledger(and Depp, briefly). Even Colin Farrell wasn't his usual smugly awful self...beyond what the plot demanded! Really enjoyed it. Hope the La Mancha remake comes through for Gilliam this time.
I got Forza 3 setup with the Microsoft racing wheel and holy shit. What a sick game.

Maybe in the world of the Xbox. I can't think of a single die-hard Windows fanatic. I mean, I don't like the Apple OS because I feel like I am being patronized when I use it, but if something else came out that ran better than windows and handled all my utilities, programs...

Not doing any research is like buying a new computer without ever having used one before, or buying a car without a test-drive or knowing anything about it. And, while some of the differences in the...
