Wait, so WWE films was actually trying to get Pacino to participate in 12 Rounds?bford24 wrote:I think 12 Rounds is going to be bad. You are right it is The Marine with a cop. I just knew that they were never going to get Al Pacino to be in the movie.
Thank goodness. Will Blu-Ray DVD's still be outrageously priced or will the prices finally go down now that this silly format war is over?WannaB wrote:TOSHIBA is dumping it's HD-DVD format. It appears as though Blu-Ray's victory is now official.

My expectations are certainly not very high for Dragon Ball. But comparing it to Catwoman. Ouch that's harsh. I guess we will see.El Asian wrote:I don't know about you guys but I personally think the Dragon Ball Z movie looks a contender for the worst movie of the year, almost as bad as Catwoman just from the casting and the story
Well I like most of what Mann has produced and I'm a fan of Bale. I've gotten sick of Johnny Depp but I'm looking forward to Public Enemies. Public Enemies is about the G-Men and their hunt to bring down Pretty Boy Floyd, John Dillinger and Baby Face Nelson. I always enjoy those programs about prohibition and gangsters on the history channel. This should be fun.on the other hand, I'm looking forward to Michael Mann's Public Enemies, only because it stars Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, that's enough to sell me on a movie
I found a working video of the Batman: Gotham Knight anime collection featurette. It doesn't look like this one will be taken down any time soon.
Here's the link...

I have no idea who Nash and Gen are. I honestly stopped playing after Super Street Fighter II Turbo. I never got into the later ones with all their flashy combos. That made for some lonely times at the arcade.
The movie is supposed to focus on Chun Li. Details are hard to come by right now. Andrzej Bartkowiak has been tapped to direct. Andrzej has directed Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds and Doom.
So far M. Bison has not been casted yet. Who can possibly follow Raul's final performance?
Gen was a master assassin and friend of Chun-Li's father; he briefly trained her in her youth. However, he was forced to kill another assassin in front of the young girl, and blamed himself for what he saw as the violent path her life had taken since then. He swore never to assassinate again, and instead settled down in Hong Kong, opening his Genhanten restaurant and continuing to perfect his fighting skills, using them on Shadaloo punks whenever possible. Gen's Ansatsuken incorporated various Kung fu styles, such as Mantis, Crane, Bear, and Tiger. He has refined his strikes to target an adversary's vital parts to deliver quick, deadly blows. Gen entered the first World Warrior tournament alongside his friend Lee, hoping to find a worthy opponent. Dissatisfied, he returned to Hong Kong. Gen then took on the responsibility of raising Lees nephews, Yang and Yun Lee, and trained them in martial arts.
Sometime during the tournament Gen discovered he had developed leukemia and had to withdraw from the tournament. Not wanting to die on a death bed he started to search for fighters to give him a "deathmatch". The only opponent Gen had ever considered to be truly worthy of one was Akuma. When the two fought, however, Gen withstood Akuma's most brutal technique, the Shun Goku Satsu, by emptying his own heart and mind. He then struck back with his Zan'ei shadow fist attack, but Akuma was also unaffected (When Gen encounters Akuma during Street Fighter Alpha 3, the match begins with a reenactment of this battle). After a grueling match Akuma was in position to deliver a fatal blow but he left after discovering Gen had leukemia. Disappointed that he did not get his deathmatch, Gen went on a search to find Akuma. Once Gen tracked Akuma down they battled once more, the results of which are unclear, but either he died fighting Akuma or died after the fight as he has not been in the continuity since.
Oh, okay so Nash is Charlie. I remember him now. I first read about him in the SNES manual then of course saw him in one of the later Street Fighter games.El Asian wrote:Nash, also known as Charlie, is a character in the SF series, most especially Street Fighter Alpha, is best friends with Guile and was killed by M. Bison, which gives Guile motivation against M. Bison
