Very nice to see the classics and originals are coming back in one form or another. I just wish I had the dough to get the chess set. And that Sidious/Yoda thing looks rabid...wow. ___KNEEL___

Hell I come from Gambia and here is my Holiday list of things I can do for $24.99: Vaccinate my family against Winter's extra-prevalent yellow fever epidemic; buy the tools I need to dig myself a well; pay-off the local Gambian rude-boys to save me and my family from their Anual Christmas Pillaging Event '05 (kind of like when you Westerners have Fates and Bazaars etc); Reinforce my roof to stop it from collapsing in on us and killing our pet cockroach again like last year; buy a thousand seeds to help stave-off the starvation blues for a few months; Get the surgery done on poor ol' Mumbando, my eldest son, who has a bad case of stomach swelling (caused through lack of vitamin E); lastly, and most importantly of all, I can buy the control pad for the soon-to-be-released XBOX 360! Pity I can't afford the actual console though. Ah well, maybe if I plough the field a few more times I might harvest enough grain to buy a game for the console I can't afford.

You couldn't pay me $9.99 to own that film. What a piece of crap. Give me "The Year Without a Santa Claus" any day. Heat Miser RULES.

I'd buy that set in a heartbeat! I've been wondering where the hell Phantasm 2 is on DVD. Why can't this set come out here? Who actually owns the rights?
Nov. 25, 2005, 6:07 p.m. CST
Available only in the UK...

One of the few games to make me smile this year. What it may lack in story, it makes up with flaweless controls. Very fun, pick it up. It should be on sale, since it was released back in August.

Quint, you should appreciate this, when is Jaws: Unleashed coming out? It was slated for last summer and a playable demo has already been reviewed. You play the shark and it looks pretty good. I hope it doesn't just disappear. As for the videos, I really can't stand the Clone Wars. Maybe it's the way all the characters look so ridiculous or the exagerrated action, it just didn't do it for me.

then how come my campus's media library have it? i work there, and we got it in like two weeks ago. something doesn't make sense. but we also got that special edition of I Drink Your Blood a few months before it was released, and we got a special educational edition of The Corporation not too long after the movie was released in theaters. But still, what's so special about Cannibal Holocaust that we get it a month in advance?
Nov. 25, 2005, 11:24 p.m. CST
Not many commercials or ads...Other then the tech demos on G4. You can get it now and still feel "UNDERGROUND"
Nov. 26, 2005, 7:30 a.m. CST
Something more along the lines of, oh, "Cannibal Holocaust"?

It's a hoax perpetrated by the cannibals so that they could get their own cannibal nation.

they should have made Bishop the bishop.

The pieces are too confusing for a real game, especially on the Alien side. Maybe they should have made the knight a more obvious dog alien from alien 3.

Goldeneye was the best Bond game ever, that's not even up for debate. It takes the top spot simply for pioneering the FPS genre on consoles, not to mention it was incredbly fun and quite possibily the premier multiplayer game of it's generation.

Also, I believe the first Turok came out before Goldeneye. Goldeneye was the first big FPS on consoles, just not the first. Good game though.

Silly looking monsters don't compare with the detailed level design and character faces in GoldenEye. I can't believe they made a movie out of goofy ass Doom. Now GoldenEye, there's a video game they should make a movie out of.

If half that shit was live acion Quint would have hated it.( the big crushing thing Windu fights comes to mind ) Jokes on Quint since the best part of both Clone Wars is the bad acting was successfully emulated. I love the fact the characters act just as bad as they did in their live action counterparts. God I love that.
Nov. 28, 2005, 11:49 a.m. CST
While it is somewhat questionable to only push Xbox games what I find more displeasing is that the games Quint has picked are the video game equivalents of a Michael Bay movie.
Nov. 28, 2005, 9:02 p.m. CST
Yes, the Office Space SE is a rip off by itself. But what Quint has listed is the Best Buy exclusive box set. Not only do you get the DVD (which btw, fool-screen is ditched and widescreen added for the first time along with the aforementioned extras) the box that the items come in, a long with the stapler, magnet frame, note pad, mouse pad and pen set make the price ($21.95) more than worth the upgrade for the hardcore fan out there. Too bad Judge fucked over fans when it came to the movie. No Milton episodes and no commentary from Judge is unforgiveable, especially given the time they had to work on this thing. But even with that, it is more than worthy, in the BestBuy exclusive set, as a present under the tree.
Nov. 29, 2005, 1:29 p.m. CST
Not only can you play Kong and the humans shooting at dinosaurs, but you can also play as Peter Jackson taking a huge monster shit on Ray Harryhausen's head.
Nov. 29, 2005, 4:24 p.m. CST
its not even up for debate, Goldeneye is still probably the greatest videogame for its time, i remember buying a n64 just for that golden-eyed goodness......wait a minute, i'm gonna put away the 360 now and plug the N64 in!
Nov. 29, 2005, 7:47 p.m. CST
cant wait to see part 2!

My favourite mission was either breaking out of your cell or sniping in the snowfields with the log cabins. Loved getting those headshots. I've always been a fan of the print From Russia With Love. Classic.
Dec. 1, 2005, 11:37 a.m. CST
I love this movie but seriously, does anyone really want this crap that comes with it? It sounds funny on paper but once you get it home, what the hell do you do with it? More and more you see these repackaged dvds coming with incidental crap (e.g. Seinfeld puffy shirt). It just seems like garage sale clutter.
Dec. 1, 2005, 11:41 a.m. CST
Yeah I guess the 2.5 hours of non-stop action in Sith was a real sleeping pill. I hate anti-star Wars stuff for the sake of being anti-Star Wars.
Dec. 1, 2005, 7:11 p.m. CST
"Energy and imagination" does not mean or equal "non-stop action". Just remember, some Chuck Norris movies are non-stop action too... but that doesn't mean they're good. Fucking Chuck Norris.

...Just to cut into it's thunder and sales yet again. I mean, the Playstation 3 has already had rumblings that due to its development costs and configuration, it could cost MORE than the 360 does now (at $399). So if the Playstation 3 debuts at $450 to $500 bucks...and meanwhile Bill Gates, due to production now being fully ramped up, cuts the price of the 360 to 299 for the deluxe version, you're talking a full $200 point spread between investing in a 360 versus picking up the Playstation 3. Not to mention, by that time far more games will be out for the 360, and what's the point of a next gen console if the games aren't there? Seems to me, overall, Gates really stuck it to Sony this time by being first to market...

The 5th bonus disc in the set has some GREAT documentaries on it as well as a tour with Reggie of all the Phantasm locations. There is a segment about the hardcore Phans that is relly entertaining as well. That ball looks AWESOME on my entertainment center. Pride of my collection right now. Buy a 35.00 Cyberhome model 320 from Wal-Mart and decode it to play all regions. HOW TO DECODE A CYBERHOME PLAYER: With the dvd tray closed and empty, enter on the remote MENU,1,9....and a display comes up that lets you set the player to regions 1-3 or 0 to play EVERY movie in ANY region code. It will adjust to PAL or NTSC automatically when playing a dvd. Worth 35.00. I actually bought a couple of those little players.

Worth the 45.00 just for the sphere replica alone. I put the dvd's in actual cases so I do not have to handle the sphere when I want a dose of Phantasm.

They release 3 versions of Freddy and Jason, TONS of sports figures, shitty 3rd rate horror characters like the Jeepers Creepers guy and that Tooth Fairy ghost, but no Phantams characters? A series that has endured for over 20 years, with 3 sequels all made by the same director and actors? THAT doesn't deserve a figure? Way to step up Neca! I bought one of those Tall Man figures also.

Dec. 4, 2005, 5:42 a.m. CST
sure the logic to the creeper legend is flawed, but he is the best of the newer horror creatures. I didn't really like either of the movies, but I thought The Creeper was cool as hell in the second one.
