I don't know if this crap is going on over in the UK, but here in the states, I am sick and tired of having to be FORCED to sit through that LAME RIAA anti-piracy FARCE "commercial".

PLUS, add to that 2, count'em, 2 "Target Market" anti-smoking ads,
AND
at least ONE "insert military branch here" ad trying to get me to enlist in the service.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but my ticket price and the cash I pay for my 2 hot-dogs, nachos, and a big-a$$ drink should be PLENTY of cash for the theater.

Trailers, NO PROBLEM, as THAT is what brings me back...
Ad's for the local coffee shop, NO PROBLEM.

NOT the fricken ads to help out some POLITICAL or RELIGIOUS crusade.

We donīt get those ads.

We get the "Smoke more this one", or "Drink more of this Whisky" type. So at least we get to see babes showing some stuff. :p

I kinda liked Rules of Attraction. A bit over hyped, but I had fun anyway.

"I only did it with her because I love you!" Lol. :p

Gotta say, I found "Underworld" to be rather boring. Which is a shame, because I was really looking forward to it.

It did everything wrong that Blade did right. The vampires hardly even had fangs, didn' t really attack anyone, nor did any fighting. The werewolves spent most of their time in human form. The story was confused and slightly dull. The fight sequences were utterly boring, nothing a thousand action movies hadn't done better years ago. The love angle between kate and the guy was stupid, they barely exchanged ten words!

I wanted to like this movie, but couldn't. If you want to see something a little more interesting, go watch Equilibrium. Now, *thats* a good movie.

Jon.

Yup that would be where I work I saw the movie last week and I didnt really like it a hug amount. The effects were cool though, understated but nice. The breaking and cliking of bones moving into place on the vampires (lichens?!! wtf?!!? ) were especially cool

What do the mean by "procedural animation", as opposed to keyframe animation?
