    As usual, the answer is get an XBox360. 😉

    can’t say that I’ll see the Fourth Kind, but that’s mostly because the supernatural/eerie/horror genre has never been my cup of tea. But the holiday seas of movies is close at hand!

      I have been very resistant to getting an X-Box in the past because I have been brand-loyal to Nintendo since my childhood. Only since 2002 have I owned a Playstation.

      It’s like moving mountains to try and explain to Cami why having more than one console system is appropriate. I should just go out and buy the damn thing myself. But considering the cost and the time sink a new console can be, that’s the sort of thing you want buy-in on first from a spouse’s perspective.

    I read recently that the Netflix integration will soon be available for the Playstation 3 as well, which is also a Blu-Ray player and recently came down a lot in price. If that helps sell the deal better. 😉

    Good comic. It also reminded me that when I was a kid watching saturday morning cartoons, “Garfield and Friends” did a gag similar to this one. They listed off a dozen different ridiculous close encounter types, like picking up your dry cleaning and such.

    Ha ha ha, good one, Tom! What the hell has social networking done to our society. 😛

    It always bugs me when films try to pull this ‘completely real footage’ thing. Like the only way it will be able to get to you is by convincing you that it really happened, not through any effort on the part of the movie itself. I prefer it when they make it look as real as possible (like with Paranormal Activity), but don’t try to patronize the audience by saying it all actually happened. If something can still scare you even when you know the whole thing is completely fictional, then you’ve got some quality horror on your hands.

    And go get an Xbox 360. It’s a good thing to have, and I say this as someone who grew up on nothing but Nintendo.

    I don’t think I’ll be seeing the Forth Kind. We watched Paranormal Activity last night and some of us got more shaken up than others. Overall, we were all scared. Never before have I been so scared and apprehensive of just a single shot!! Damn that nighttime bedroom shot! Amazing movie by the way, but not for the weak of heart or will. True scares, true suspense. I doubt The Fourth Kind will deliver on that front.
    I’ll wait till Shutter Island for my next thrill.
