Reminds me of the Samurai movie with Cruise. I like me a fantasy filled martial arts fable in quality modern hands. This I will watch in the theatre.

Different application. Handles links differently. Look for a chain link right after the text formatting options. You can insert links with that.
Hahaha; I bush but my level of bush no be like that nah. I can insert the links and the one above is a link - I just liked using my trademark super bright red; not the halfling red I used. lol

PS - click on the link - it has info for ya ;)

Back to your question with more info. The Gift is a prequel to a feature film titled 'Small' that he has written and designed... No idea if it will get made.
I knew it was too loaded and layered to be a short. That story has serious potential. It will get made if he makes a smash with 47 Ronin.

Pacific Rim was good and wolverine looks promising.
Oh dear... Pacific Rim is one of the worst films I've seen this year. The graphics were amazing no doubt... the acting was awful; it was so wooden and cringe worthy throughout. Only two people did a good job - Idris Elba but it was impossible for him to carry the whole film alone also Max Martini was good. Let's not even get into the most stupid romance in the history of cinema (their plan for China market don bomb) how annoying, stupid and usless was that chick?... And parts of the story... chei... just plain dumb...
Anyway their target audience na people wey neva commot for their mama basement as well as 7yr olds and under. Saw the very first showing which was packed - the whole cinema was silent; people were just shocked at the unbelieveable crap they were seeing on the screen. I hated that film with a vengeance lol
They should have just stuck to big robot bashing big monster!

Wolverine... meh, just manage straddle the line above ok but I think the next X-men installment will be good as you-know-who is back and teams up with you-know-who (Can't write spoilers here).
Seriously 2013 has so far sucked big time when it comes to blockbusters... Hollywood is just getting dumber. I'm really hoping this 47 Ronin redeems the year.

Yeah, any serious movie mind would know to avoid Pacific Rim until it comes to cable service that you already paid for...

True that but I dont think I've turned my TV on in about a year... for some reason I find it to be really boring so I either watch stuff online or on the big screen. No worries about the cinema since I went 'unlimited' - I can see anything and everything for the price of 2 cinema tickets a month. There's a month I think I saw 8 films. Lolol that worked out at less than 2 bucks for a movie ;)
So even when I know a movie is going to be rubbish... I'm still gonna have that cinema experience. And sometimes they do a special screening where we get to see a film 2-3 wks in advance. It's all good & cheap as chips over here.
