Jon, you got the name nearly right but I believe it's Kraven with a "v".  How about The Scorpioin?   Or Medusa with the crazy hair?  She was a villainous when she first appeared...I remember she was also a member of the Frightful Four at one time.  Or since it looks like there won't be anymore Fantastic Four movies, how about bringing in The Human Torch in a crossover movie?  :P

The King Pin (lets forget Daredevil happened :P)

I thought that "Daredevil: Director's Cut" is a good movie. I enjoy it. The theatrical cut is bad though.

Kraven! Thank you, Roger. I should have known. I still have my first comic which was a one-off special with Spidey being hunted by the Sinister Six and they all took their turns weakening him. X-Men and F4 also appeared I seem to remember.

They could bring Spidey into the X-Men movies. They already did actually, but the scene was cut...

Haha, I remember that on the DVD Jon.

I think they could make a nice Spider-man crossover but its never gonna happen :p

...How long have they been talking about that Batman and Superman movie?

...Of course I personally would love to see a Dark Claw movie (anyone see the Amalgam comics?) Batman and Wolverine.... what else could a girl (or a guy)` ask for?   :P

Title: South Park: Season Twelve
Year: 2008
Director:
Rating: FSK-16
Length: 310 Min.
Video: Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio: German: Dolby Digital Stereo, English: Dolby Digital Stereo
Subtitles: Dutch, English, German

Plot:
All fourteen uncensored episodes from South Park's twelfth season are now available in this exclusive three-disc set. In this colection, South Park follows the new president-elect from is acceptance speech to his first official duty as Commander in Chief. The boys keep busy helping a pop princess who's down on her luck, negotiating a truce for striking Canadians, and preventing giant rodents from destroying the world. For them, it's all part of growing up in South Park!


Extras:
Commentary
Featurettes
Scene Access

My Thoughts:
I always felt that South Park got better and better with each season. But this season is a bit of a let-down. Seems like they are running out of steam a little bit.
My favorites in this season are the episode were Wendy challenges Cartman to a fight and he tries to get out of it, and the two-parter "Pandemic", which is a great Cloverfield parody with giant guinea pigs attacking. I think they did a great job with the hand-held camera "footage".
The episode "Elementary School Musical" makes me a little bit curious to watch the "High School Musical" movies, to see if they are really that bad :laugh:

I to think that this season was a little dire but then I did not like Imagination Land either, and that was the end of season 11.

I haven't watched any of 13 as im buying it on DVD but Ive been told it was better then season 12.. I hope so.

Title: Kujibiki Unbalance: The Collection
Year: 2006
Director:
Rating: NR
Length: 375 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 1.78
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Stereo, Japanese: Dolby Digital Stereo
Subtitles: Commentary, English

Stars:


Plot:
Chihiro has always had rotten luck in life. But at the prestigious Rikkyouin Academy, where everything is decided by drawn lot, or kujibiki, he finds his luck changing when he draws the lot for student council president. He and his harem of student council candidates undergo a year-long, impossible apprenticeship under the current ruling body, which happens to be led by one of Chihiro's childhood friends. The road to success is filled with zany misadventures, innocent romances, and a wild humor that is sure to please.

Each disc includes an episode of Genshiken!

Extras:
Commentary
Genshiken OVAs
Trailers

My Thoughts:
Originally this was a fictional series in the Genshiken series. Then they re-imagined it and made a real series out of it. I bought this one, because it includes three additional Genshiken episodes, which bridges the first and second season of Genshiken. It introduces my favorite Genshiken character Ogiue.
The Kujibiki Unbalance series is nothing which I can really recommend. It had some fun scenes and episodes, but overall I can recommend this set only to fans of Genshiken to have that anime series completed. The Genshiken episodes are great!

Extras:

My Thoughts:
You can clearly see, that the plot is merely an excuse to use as many 3D effects as possible. Without the 3D effects, this movie is not worth watching.
The 3D effects themselves are good, but suffer from the home theatre 3D technology. Though I did enjoy them.
The brain is a funny thing. It gets accustomed to the color filters to make some sense of the colors it sees. After I have taken off the glasses after the movie, each eye did still see in different colors if I closed the other eye. A few minutes after the movie, one eye still saw everything in green, the other in red. Both together have seen everything normally. I never would have noticed this, if my brother hadn't pointed it out to me.

My Thoughts:
I have seen this movie in the theatres. I remembered it being much more fun. I still enjoyed, but just not as much as the last time. Maybe it is because of the director's cut. I had the feeling it dragged in too many scenes.
Robert Downey Jr did a really great job though. Jack Black though was underused and not used in the right way. His drug-addicted character was just too much of a one-joke character.

Title: Drawn Together: Season Three
Year: 2006
Director:
Rating: NR
Length: 308 Min.
Video: Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital Stereo
Subtitles:

Stars:


Plot:
All the blood, puke and boobs you love are back for the third and final season of Drawn Together. The dirtiest, deadliest, sexiest, and funkiest Drawn Together season ever features MORE animated blood, MORE animated vomit, and MORE animated nipples. Watch as Captain Hero tortures his 12-year-old self, Ling-Ling gets put into foster care, and Toot finally gets worshipped as the cow she is. It's what happens when cartoon characters stop being real and start being animated.

Awards:
Extras:
Closed Captioned
Trailers

My Thoughts:
It has been awhile since I saw the first two seasons, but I remember them being much more fun. It feels like they were doing the same jokes over and over again and were just trying to outgross themselves each time.
I enjoyed the Muppet Babies parody though. One of the reasons I didn't really enjoy it is, that Toots gets too much screentime. It is the one character I do not enjoy at all. Her sole purpose seems to be make jokes about her ugly body (which was still somewhat funny in season 1, but now is really tired) and the voice of hers just gets on my nerve.

Aparantley a Drawn Together movie is being released in April, I have only seen Season 1 so I may have to catch up before I watch it.
