  • Thank you for smoking!

    Has anyone seen this film yet?

    It is rare for me to see a film with whom's views I agree completely, and this is one of them. And it's funny to boot!

    Is it something on the net or something we need to rent to watch? Or did you just forget a URL?

      Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

        It's a commercial film, released nationwide last week I believe.

        I hate to link to it, because links inevitably give away part of the story (like reading the back cover of a book), but if anyone likes, here is the basic Yahoo! movie profile. For what it's worth, most of the blurbs I've seen about the movie aren't really accurate.

          It was ok. Some of it was very biting satire, but it felt like it pulled punches when you expected a right hook. Much "softer" than advertised. Some of the dialogue could have been pulled right from the Sandbox, however. Recommended.

            I think a lot of people were disappointed that the movie makes a mockery of the "wrong" people. :icon_eek:

            I refused to see it until my friend told me who it makes fun of.

              It pokes fun at a little bit of everybody. The Rob Lowe scenes were priceless. And the self-righteous Vermont senator? Awesome.

                I watched the trailer and it looks pretty good!

                    I've heard good things. After checking out the special screening of 2001 tonight, that's next on my list.

                    After that, next on my list is C.S.A.. Click on 'Trailier' to see the...you know, trailer. This looks HILARIOUS.

                      Eh, I watched the trailer. Honestly, can't say that I'll go see that.
