  1. The tale of 300 Spartans defending a mountain pass against 1 million Persians is apocryphal. So is the story of the Trojan Horse, and story of Pheidippides, who ran from Marathon to Athens to announce the miraculous Greek victory against the Persian hordes at the Battle of Marathon only to collapse dead from exhaustion after delivering the news. Any recreation of battles from this time period will be "historically inaccurate" because history did not sufficiently record them. The tales we remember, such as the Battle of Thermopylae, are all fabrications to one degree or another. The goal of the film was to be true to the comic book, and in that the director succeeded. The genre of the film is Fantasy/Adventure. I don't remember any advertisements that portrayed it as a historical re-enactment; I don't know how you got that impression.
  2. People with an inability to tell fantasy from reality are much more common than hungry squirrels.
  3. Superman's creators (Executive Producers for this film as well) were Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster. Both Jews. He was never intended to be a Christ Figure. He is a manifestation of the archetypal hero. To me he represents the indomitable human spirit. He has great power, and he struggles to use it responsibly. He doesn't always know what is right, but he does his best and has to live with the consequences. He is not invincible, but nonetheless he cannot be defeated, because he will NEVER give up.
  4. I know what the new Alliance race is going to be because I am a clever man!
  5. The link I used was /.ed. No mystery why it was removed from that server.
  6. Acording to Entertainment Weekly I disagree with Blues Brothers 2000 (though the title was dumb) making the list, but all the other ones on there that I have seen are horrible.
  7. You wife, because you will threaten to put snakes in her car if she doesn't. She'll never know where they are or if she has gotten them all out.
  8. I've got a 60 and a 31 on Llane, and recently started a char on Kul Trias because I discovered my sister, her fiance, my brother, an aunt and 2 uncles all play over there. It honestly doesn't surprise me anymore to find out that someone plays. Subscription is up to what, 4.5 million in the US?
  9. That is an important prerequisite to playing, yes.
  10. Rei and I cannot play on together, unfortunately, because we live on different continents. You play Blackthorn?
  11. Jayne has a lot of good lines:
  12. I had the whole office rolling when I used one of Jayne's lines at work with one of my subordinates: "Do you know what the Chain of Command is? Its the chain I go get and beat you with until you realize who's in charge here!" Oh, and who's the Alliance scumbag?
