I'd say I'm at least as bad as Dan was

I don't think it's really avoided in film is it? I'd imagine it's avoided in video games for the same reason a lot of controversial issues are avoided, and as a lot of people have said, in film it tends to be used as a rather dramatic point in the story, rather than something that just happens and is ignored from then on. In video games, if you just ran about massacring hordes of children for a while, before then moving back onto the story and being the hero it wouldn't quite work

@benpicko: it looks amazing and I hate that it's not showing anywhere near me.

I was just back in England, saw that it was having a pretty wide release there, so was looking forward to seeing it when I got back to Canada and... Nope, nothing at all.

@benpicko: It came out in theaters a couple months ago, but got a surprisingly limited release for a Miyazaki film. The closest theater to where I lived that was showing it was like 45 minutes away so I decided to just wait for the DVD which is not yet out in the USA.

Oh right, seemed like a pretty wide release in the UK. Same with Boyhood though from what I've heard. There are only like 3 cinemas showing it in Canada and it's all over England

Boyhood is all I want to see this month and it's not showing anywhere in Canada apparently which is fantastic

Everybody lost it in that Second Life video

Edit:

Maybe not, but we need a Rorie thread

Does anyone here share my utter disgust for OP's misspelling of potato?

It just makes me embarrassed to be a part of a website where errors like this become a trend.
