The fighter genre for video games is back at war on the big screen. If you recall back in the 90's there were movies for both Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, with the winner apparently being MK since it got a sequel. (We preferred Street Fighter)
Well, here we are several years later and the war has begun once again. Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, released back 2009, was round one. To counter attack this, rumor has it 2010 will feature the release of Mortal Kombat: Devastation.
The best news however, is that the long anticipated TEKKEN movie will also be making its way to the US. Although if the movie will be straight to DVD or make a run through theaters is still to be seen.
Which fighter do you hope to see on the big screen? - GJ

So I know it's a little late, but I'm just now getting around to writing my review to "And Another Thing..." by Eoin Colfer.
This story is a continuation to the classic "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" by Douglas Adams.
To be honest, it's nice to see some of sci-fi's greatest characters back together again; although for whatever reason, Mr. Colfer left out the best character in the entire series, Marvin the robot. So not cool.
The story itself wasn't half bad, but any story featuring the God of Thunder Thor wouldn't be.
There was however a big downfall. Mr. Colfer is not Mr. Adams and he seemed to just try a little too hard with inserting the jokes into every single line. The "Guide" insertions were also a big waste of time for the most part; they really didn't do anything but distract from the story.
To be fair to Mr. Colfer, this is the first novel of his that I've read, and I am willing to give him another try to entertain me.
When all is said and done, if you took the time to read the entire "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" then you should at least take the time to check this book out of the library.
