  7. Listener Feedback and Questions

    • Otto: Fianlly saw the movie today, for the most part I liked it. I was just a bit put off by how they changed everybody’s back stories. The whole Duke/Baroness/CC thing was just bad and c’mon, give Snake Eyes his due, he had to suffer thru the cartoon of not being with Scarlett, why deny him that in the movie? The story it’s self was great, something I could totally see Larry Hama and Buz Dixon having come up with for the comic or cartoon. Sucked to see Storm Shadow get killed, tho I’m sure he’ll make a comeback, you don’t just kill off one of the most popular characters like that. What was the point of Cover Girl tho? She had almost no lines and get whacked in the first ten minutes. Her part could have gone with just being a nameless character.
    • Mike: SDCC Optimus Prime Mighty Mugg inconvenience
    • Jaime: So you got so V action very cool, living down here i’ll have to wait for dvd, big fan of Smallville and love Supergirl and BIG fan of Laura Vandervoort who play’s Supergirl and is in the new V remake. Really likes Chuck too. Sister is 15 and all over Twilight. Weta works is in New Zealand. G.i Joe was not a good movie! but it was the Funniest movie this year. Like the background music. MOTU movie.
