MOVIES THAT YOU WALKED OUT ON

Eh.. this one needs no explanation, really.  What movies were so bad that you just said, "Screw this, I'm outta here."?  If so, did you ask for your money back?

I never asked for my money back due to the film sucking, but I have left early for that reason.  That was during Billy Madison.  Terrible.

THE BEST BLOODY DEATH SCENES IN MOVIES

Hey bloodbath lovers!

Now, the blog title doesn't necessarily mean the film has to be a slasher, or even a horror film for that matter.  Shootouts in action films can be awfully bloody sometimes.  Whatever scenes ended with some poor sucker covered in red stuff and not movin' too much.

Fire/slash/chop away!

COOL WAYS TO GET KILLED IN VIDEO GAMES

Call me strange, but in video games, I love killing myself by jumping off insanely high cliffs, getting squished by rolling boulders, getting sliced up by swinging pendulums, getting shot at, getting eaten, getting burned, destroyed, impaled, mangled, torn to pieces, etc.  I mean, to me, it's funny.  Does this transfer over to real life?  Hell no!  I'm smart enough to know the difference.  The debate on whether kids can tell the difference is really up to the parents, IMHO. 

That aside, what are your favorite ways to die, and in which game?

One of mine is any ridiculously high ledge in Tomb Raider, and jumping off and hearing Lara scream (up to 3 times in some places) as she plummets to her death, with a satisfying crunch.  Take that, you snooty, huge-boobed thief!

Another is being eaten by the giant snake called The Yawn in Resident Evil.  Gulp!

YOUR FAVORITE SURVIVAL HORROR GAMES

Hey folks.

A lot of people automatically think of the Resident Evil series, or the Silent Hill series, when they think of survival horror games, but a number of great ones came out way before them.  What were some of your favorites?

My faves were nearly the entire Resident Evil series, especially 4, and Clock Tower.  Scissorman is definitely a cool villian.

YOUR FAVORITE PLAYSTATION ONE GAMES

Continuing the climb of the console evolutionary ladder, we move on to the PSOne, or simply the original Playstation.  It was hardly the first CD console system, but arguably the first good one.  This had a lot of great games that, once I find them, I'll throw on my PS2 and relive the good old days.  What games do you have fond memories of?  Or some crappy ones that you remember, if you like.

SEGA CD GAMES

Ok video game mavens,

Here's a system that was fairly short-lived and has had its share of criticism over its short life span, but certainly had some pretty good games.  Many would say that the dearth of Full Motion Video games helped lead to its downfall, but I tend to disagree; I think that despite the fact it was a cd-based system, it just didn't really up the graphics/colors quota high enough.  However, there were some truly great games that came from this system, and I think some of the FMV games were pretty darn good.  What memories do you have of this short-lived system?

SEGA GENESIS GAMES YOU LIKED

Okay, continuing up the console evolutionary ladder, we now come to the Sega Genesis, also known as The MegaDrive in Japan and Europe.  I believe the first game packaged with it was Altered Beast, which wasn't too bad.  But soon came some pretty awesome titles.  What ones do you have the fondest memories of?

GREAT BASKETBALL BUZZER-BEATERS

Hey basketball fans.

Share your memories about the buzzer-beaters that either made you leap off your seat or threw a dagger into your heart.  And if you can get clips of them, even better!
