oh awesome, they put Ponyo on Instant? hells yeah! anyway, my recommendations:

Movies

Bronson -- the story of Charles Bronson, "the most violent prisoner in Britain". Most of the movie is based on fact, and the man playing Bronson himself did an amazing job (almost matches the images of the man perfectly) but i was amazed at how full of hilarity it was. If you like dry British humor, give it a shot.
Ichi -- a blind swordswoman in old Japan travels to find her long-lost mentor. features some seriously awesome fighting. the only drawback is that we couldn't figure out how to get it subtitled as opposed to dubbed, though the dub isn't all that bad.
The Commitments -- i don't really know how to describe it... this kid in Ireland wants to start a band, holds auditions and chooses people and stuff, and then it follows them from their start to when they finally split. it was really a great movie, and the music was surprisingly amazing.
Up -- Pixar outdid themselves again with another wonderful story, and of course the visuals to match. i never did see it in theaters but finally had the chance recently thanks to Netflix... an excellent movie, really tugs at the heartstrings.

TV

FarScape -- if you like cheesy mid-90's SciFi Channel fare, this is for you. this astronaut goes to outer space to perform an experimental flight and winds up halfway across the galaxy. he hooks up with a group of fugitive prisoners on their living ship and they kinda go along trying to stay away from their former captors and having adventures and the dude wants to go home. good series, but the theme music is weird :3
Battlestar Galactica (TOS) -- cheesy late-70's sci-fi fare at its best! good times, good times. heavy on the moralism sometimes, but it's just got that old-school charm that drew me in :3
Soap -- another older show, this one a big fat parody of cheesy soap operas and their drama~ it is good times.

@romulux: good to know, thanks! that'll save me some time; i'd noticed they explode on the beats but thought i had to keep shooting them until then.

@iphys: i'm with you -- that second boss was a pain in the tail because i kept wanting to hit up/down instead of left/right. i wound up having to turn my hand sideways with the nunchuk just to remember which directions to hit. :/

anyway, it took me some time to get used to Commander Video having only his core as a vulnerable spot -- just keep that little red patch from being struck by anything and he won't get hurt.

not sure yet whether i prefer Commandgirl Video or Junior Melchion most as a helper. i know Meat Boy helps with bigger, stronger blasts, but i can't say that i'm a fan. it just seems so slow compared to the other helpers.

also, i haven't tried the CC yet because the Wiimote/Nunchuk combo is working out quite well for me, really. i like the freedom of arm movement it offers :3 i like got through to Level 3 yesterday, and i'll probably continue on after work today. i really do hate shooters, but this one's pretty fun so far :3

Completing things such as this would in turn give you a overall achievement outside of the game to a profile that is permant to your screename, like my PSN ID tags I posted above. Your friends then can check out your profile online and see what all you have completed on the ingame achievements and compare it to their own profiles, etc.

oh, so it's a quicker way to the penis-waving contests, then. if i didn't care whether we see them or not before, i definitely don't care now. :3

idk, Popyman -- i think it makes sense for Peter Jackson to also do The Hobbit since he did LotR. unless the director did a particularly poor job at the first movie in a series, it helps to keep everything cohesive if the same director with the same initial vision of that particular world keeps on going with it, y'know? :3

I have no problem with AJAA, I'm just not big on its middle cases, but I'm usually not anyway.

whaaaaat? how can you not be down with the magic panties? >:3

i must say, though, that I felt AJAA's first case was the weakest of the four. i understand why the game had to start out with that case, but i remember during my first playthrough it just felt sloppy and rushed. only after playing the final case, when everything is revealed, did it start to make sense in my mind, but even now i just don't like it as much as the initial cases in the first three games. :/ that final case was the sh*t, though, ahahaha~

@kkslider: that's taking it a bit far, i think. no need to insult the guy.
also, i don't see any chocobos in that so there's no way it could possibly be a favorite game of his :3

So as I said, Nintendo's making a mistake if it doesn't feature this in some capacity.

no, Nintendo would be making a mistake by not releasing games i want to purchase. again, i don't care about achievements -- put them in, don't put them in, noodles, don't noodles. just give me games.

edit: actually, i take that back -- depending on the game in question and how it's set up, online leaderboards would potentially have me playing for far longer than plain old achievements would. make it happen, Nintendo.

ah, i think i get it -- you're probably confusing industry opinions with what the general public thought, lol. if animators think Flushed Away was amazing, 's whatev', but as a layman i thought it was pretty lame lol. same for Shark Tale, sry2say. Dreamworks ain't got nothin' on Disney or Pixar in terms of a vividly compelling movie that I will want to watch again and again.

Forgive me, NintendoPurist -- i'm sure it's a lovely fanplay for viewers of this particular TV show -- but i'm not quite sure how a grown man making jokes about (potentially?) deflowering a little girl is anywhere remotely acceptable here at NL. You may wish to post something like this over at FanFiction.net if you'd like some honest feedback regarding your writing style, or if you're not quite up for that yet, post it to your blog and link back to your blog in your signature so that interested users may continue reading.
