Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

There was a phone call. I missed the last 10 minutes.

I couldn't find the courage to push rewind after I had finished with real life.

Earlier in the day, I had watched Angel of death, a movie staring the stunt woman who subbed for Xena Warrior Princess during all the fighting for 7 years, just wailing on people.

This only made the constant camera cuts to hide the king fu mistress body doubles who were subbing for Kristen even more apalling if not obvious.

Though I think the voice overs where she talked about her destiny and the mysterious and noble quest atop a montage of the travel log of her wandering the streets of Hong Kong was about the worst.

But, at first sight, I could not help laughing my ass off about how much weight someone thought she had to lose to be good enough for straight to video clusterfuck like this? She looked like ET.

Though, it was still better than the Jean Claude Vandamn version.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Well what gets me about her being "Chun Li" is that while YES she's PART-Chinese, she's not physically very Chinese, even the way they had her made up on the cover, it looked like "Oh Lana Lang from Smallville's going oriental again huh?"

Heck I would even have tolerated some disney youngin like Brenda Song or the gal that played Zoe Chei in Knight Rider.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

I read the first pages of the script for Street Fighter and realized that it was centered around Chun-Li and while she's an okay character it made me avoid the entire thing like a plague unleashed upon an unsuspecting humanity. Luckily not too many were affected since it was quickly eradicated at the box office.

This is my normal viewing schedule of a Smallville season. Will watch the premire to see how they wrap up the previous season and introduce this season's story lines then the second episode to see new characters, and then the third episode filler. Granted last season as everyone has stated was a little different because there was so much change and things were better than they had been in a long time and the same could go for this season as well. Usually by episode four or five I've made my decision weather or not I'm in for the long haul.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Well I find it sometimes better to watch it in DVD form as at least you can watch everything straight through and pick up on some of the subtle things that you miss when you watch it weekly... and then miss a bunch of episodes. LOL

Finally got through all of "the Kara and Brainiac Season" since really it was more about them. Honestly though, I used to not mind Lana but that season really pissed me off with her character. I mean she's finally gettin' some, she knows "Clark's secrets" and yet... she's still iritable, bitchy and lies all the damn time. I mean geez... you piss and moan and whine like a dentist's drill about "Clark you have secrets and you're not telling me... don't you love me?" and yet here she goes and acts all Mrs. Lex.

Now I'm looking forward to watching last season... hehe I always seem to be about a season behind.

I'm just excited that they'll finally have Clark taking on the dual role. I'm really amazed more people haven't caught onto the fact that Clark is either a meteor freak or an alien by this point. And really he could say "Yeah I'm meteor infected, so I'm super fast and super strong." just to throw people off the scent. Just keep the super hearing, super vision and heat vision under wraps

So really by this point... you have the JLA who knows, Tess Mercer, Chloe, the late Jimmy, Lana, Lex, a number of former military, some mad scientists, a few crazy people, Pete Ross, and more than likely anyone who's even a mile away from the Kent farm...
