District 13 and District 13 Ultimatum are both pretty good. These are sort of parkour movies, but there is a healthy amount of traditional action in them, too. The first was recently re-made by Hollywood and was Paul Walker's last movie. The films are French by the way, but the dvd's have English dub or subs. I think I liked Ultimatum a little more than the original because there was more straight up ass kickin' in it.

Also, if you haven't seen 2008's Chocolate, you should. Lots of action, all real stunts performed by the actors.

Probably an oldie from the original XBox days, Hunter The Reckoning. I don't like zombie fiction or games all that much, but I enjoyed that game. It had a giant mutant zombie teddy bear.

I might buy the Black Ops duology if it came to PS4/XBO, but I have zero interest in a MW re-package. I've played the first two MW games and have no desire to play the third. However, I've heard good things about Black Ops single player campaign which is why I'd be open to an "HD" (so to speak) update of that branch of the franchise. Having said all this, COD Advanced Warfare drops in November and it's the first game since MW2 that has my attention. Why worry about the past when the future has robots and jetpacks?

AOL chats. I remember being amazed that people from all over the world could get together to talk about the dorkiest of topics and a great length.

Is this before or after he becomes President? I give him a .3% chance before, but a solid 98% after because he'll have the Presidential Key which can open any lock.

@penguindust: Arkham Asylum was Morrison, not Gaiman.

Echoing Doom Patrol and Animal Man from the same dude. Morrison is a trip to read, sone call him over rated. I find his stuff to he some of the best arguments for comics as literature, in all honesty.

You are right. I met Morrison when I was living in L.A. in the late 80's. He was signing copies of Arkham Asylum at the Golden Apple comics. Giaman did Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader, which I have not read. I did read Batman the Long Halloween by Jeph Loeb, and I thought that was pretty good. I usually think of Loeb as a Marvel guy because of Civil War and the X-Men stuff from the 90's.

I haven't read standard comics in more than a decade, but when I did, I recommend going back and checking out many of the DC Vertigo line; Sandman, Hellblazer, Grant Morrison's stint on The Doom Patrol and Books of Magic. People say Preacher was good too, but I never got around to reading it. Grant Morrison's run on Animal Man and Neil Gaiman's Batman Arkham Asylum back in the day were great.

I read a lot of manga these days and my favorites are Akira (try and read the colorized version, read many years ago),Yankee-kun to Megane-chan and Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo (same author), and my current favorite, One Punch-Man. The last two haven't completed their runs and are still being published. I tend to prefer comedies these days so...

Needs a more equal focus on the P3 characters. That's where my interest lies. I hope Aigis is in the next trailer, or better yet, Mitsuru.
