  3. @Hatter - Sounds good, I will shoot you an email this evening.

    @Castor - It's going to be a hectic, but fun, week. Also, I haven't forgot about the pitch. I will try my best to have it posted on the 17th.

  4. Man, I would love to be there as well. I'm super pumped for the new Donnie Yen movie Legend of the Fist and for James Gunn's new one Super. Hope they're good!

  6. @Silveremulsion - Donnie Yen was good but there was not enough action in the film. Far too much story/melodrama. The action scenes that were in the film was pretty sweet though.

    @Norm - I will save a spot for you. Hopefully I will get there early enough to secure a spot near the front.
