Hmmm... I think that having Willie around would have negated too many issues with "Short Round" being a girl. The flaws in the character (being a bit too stereotypical) wouldn't have changed much,...

Oddly, they don't sell large packs of 'Cairo Diggers' at the local Toys R Us. I don't think ALL of those figures are supposed to be soldiers - that would be a frackin' invasion force, to say nothing...

They weren't versed in the dig. If you look, there aren't THAT many Germans on the site. They probably just thought that it was just another set of diggers hired out and didn't think much more of it....

It's possible, but you really really need people who will watch out for you as well and keep you employed. Otherwise, yeah, it's a pretty damn fast road to self destruction. (And, yes, you get Emma...

Sadly, young actors and actresses are HEAVILY pushed into doing this sort of bull****. If they're lucky, there's someone important in their life that's keeping them from pulling the 'Full Lindsey',...

Er.. he downed a German fighter by scaring birds into it - the 'silly' lasted as long as the first bird hitting the propeller. I can't see how this bit would be 'unwise'.. Were you really just...

The dinner scene is actually my biggest problem with the movie, not just because it comes off as extremely culturally insensitive, but also because it ruins the ****ing narrative! Seriously, there's...

Shockingly, I'm going to disagree, with a bit of a caveat. If there had been some attention drawn to the scene with Indiana Jones telling the Colonel "These aren't Hindi," it may have helped...

A quick trip on Google found a bunch in LA and Seattle. Apparently there was even an UN condemnation draft! In the 1980s, I was blissfully unaware of such things.

Depends on the area, I guess. I found some protests in most major cities - but I grew up south of Indianapolis and there weren't any protests around us.

Yes, but the PS3 was designed to blast 'chunks' of RAM into each core, which is how Intel's CELL structure works. THAT is the stumbling block most developers run into. To do it effectively you have...

It goes by too quick and too cropped for me to be sure, but it looks like the "Super Heroes" SD toy version of the armor. Either way, looks like both Hammer and Stark have been busy.

Quick minor point or order on the PS3, the 256MB is per core. It's not so much the lack of memory but the lack of linear adressing on the PS3 is what most developers have an issue with. That's the...
