The trailer for this upcoming "re-imagining" is one of the most unoriginal and boring things I've seen.

Stuffing a movie full of computer generated action sequences that have been done plenty of times before equals non stop snooze fest.

I'm passing on this one.

No matter how you spin it, video games are technically an art form. I mean, when weirdos out there mutilate and degrade themselves publicly and consider it "art," how in the heck could video games NOT be considered art?

Anyone who's played Final Fantasy 7, Legend of Zelda, or more recent games like Heavy Rain, know that video games are as much an art form as any motion picture.

Really, I love Roger, but it seems like he drags this tired old debate from time to time just because he can, and he know it creates the most discussion out of anything. Talk about beating a dead horse.

This is news to me, with all the scandals related to pro athletes (including a recent pro football rapist).

Athlete's seem to lack good judgement at the least, many of their athletic talents don't seem to translate well to acting like normal, decent human beings.

This just proves what a self obsessed and fame seeking world we live in, where nothing is too sacred to exploit.

So now one of the school admissions criteria is going to be based on how 'hot' one looks (not that I'm saying the female in the video is)? I realize that looks are everything in society, from hiring to earning potential, but this is truly ridiculous extending it to admissions standards for schools.

No wonder the world hates us.

I agree with both of the above. Contrary to what the defense is trying to potray, I believe it was a lot more than simple kissing. The tipsy two were probably snogging the daylights out of each other. I find that highly distasteful in a public restaurant with kids in MY country, never mind Dubai.

I find it highly doubtful that even the local Dubai authorities would find it distasteful if two couples gave simple kisses on the cheek and whatnot, especially if it were a foreign couple.

And it's their country and rules, who are we to judget it.

I like the way the usual posters like Felix and Von bring in complete non-issues whenever topics like these come up. And I also like the way this article was posted to give an incomplete representation of the story, as it misleads those who do not completely read the links to the article.

The student government and Alma Mater society were the ones that were involved with this incident, NOT the nation of Japan.

In fact, this is the first time I've ever heard of anyone claiming these suits were 'racist,' and they've been around for YEARS. Why is it we never heard of such complaints before?

I posted in the upcoming queue a while ago about abandoned amusement park in North Korea. It never made it but thought it had some interesting and creepy photos.

I read this very interesting article on Slate a week ago and was going to put it on the Upcoming Queue but didn't, knowing that it was most likely going to get 'thumbed down.'
