Here's an article about some "geeky" movies that had great potential, but turned out less than stellar. For those too lazy to click the link, the list is as follows:
1. The Mummy 3 2. A.I. 3. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow 4. The Time Machine 5. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory 6. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy 7. League of Extraordinary Gentlemen 8. Erik the Viking 9. Matrix 2/3 and 10. Waterworld
What do you think of the list? Are there some movies that should be added, or some that don't belong?
In my opinion, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy doesn't deserve to be there, and I enjoyed the second Matrix movie, although it doesn't come close to the greatness of the original. If this list was made several weeks from now, I have a feeling the The Clone Wars would be up there. It looks absolutely horrible.
After using the the Bomb for a few days, I can definitively say that Giant Bomb is a great site. It surpasses any gaming site I have been a member of for many reasons. The two best features, IMO, are that it provides the user with the ability to edit game information in a Wikipedia like manner, and the staff and community are far above average.
The dedication of the staff is apparent with a quick stroll through the Giant Bomb homepage. Regular Bombcasts, reviews, and game coverage about the things that matter are just a few of the qualities that will keep this site a favorite of mine for years to come.
Despite the lack of moderators in the forums, things have been surprisingly civil. Of course, there are the occasional trolls and spammers, but for the most part they have seemed to disappear. So far the community has demonstrated un-moderated forums can display a level of maturity not found in the vast majority of other internet forums, especially those that are not moderated.
All in all I am impressed with the overall quality of the site, and it's future holds much promise (after all, this is just a beta).
Well, that's my two minute blurb for the day. Enjoy.
