Darker than Black's plot/story was terrible. Weak excuse for stylish combat. That said I'll probably watch the second season because I can't leave things alone until they are finished.

Haven't seen Darker Than Black, I'll note to check that out.

I don't watch TV much, but occasionally I get friends bugging me to watch something. Next on my list is Dexter.

Thirded, but the setting was quite nice, IMHO. I really like the idea with the obeisances. To have distinct penalties for your powers is an idea I like. A lot because I think forcing ridiculously fat people to eat cigarettes is a hilarious idea.

96 Hours (Taken) is the best movie I´ve ssen in a while. I like it more than the last James Bond. Just watch it if you like this kind of movies Liam Neeson is badass he owns everybody.
The story is very good I only disliked the ending.


(Don´t want to tell you what I disliked cause I don´t want to speak about the end of a movie, but the negative part is not a big deal)

Saw District 9 last night... 9/10

A very fulfilling movie, a type which is rather uncommon nowadays. Every part of it was just plain good. The message was pretty blatant, but it was so well executed that it doesn't even matter.
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.
