Man, do I see a few of us in this story from The Onion :
quote: Sci-Fi Fans Argue The Better Of Two As-Yet-Unreleased Films
TULSA, OK— Science-fiction fans Pete Carver and Matthew Wynne disagreed sharply Monday on the relative merits of Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone and The Fellowship Of The Ring, neither of which hits theaters for months. "The storyboards for the Quidditch tournament I saw on this one web site look terrible," said the pro-Tolkien Carver. "There's no way that scene can be better than I've heard the Balrog one is." Wynne countered that the set design for the Great Hall of Hogwarts set "will completely blow away" that of the Mines of Moria.[/quote]

Ken, I saw that article and got a chuckle out of it. :) I even thought about posting it as you did. However, I'd already started a thread in the After Hours Lounge concerning the Blockbuster article (see link below), which didn't get any replies. I just figured nobody was in the mood for a laugh...
He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

Steve, I laughed at that article you posted (yes, I saw it the first time :)). I absolutely LOVE that Blockbuster article.
But these kind of messages don't really require a reply... :)
