I was here way back when it started and this was the last site I hung around before my year or so away from the community.

Oh and any chance we can correct my name?

The very same Hicks, although this is my misspelt alias. This is my old avatar Weyland. Back in the old days.

As for what the films about...

When Sam Merrick (Rory Culkin) is beaten up by local bully George Tooney (Josh Peck), Sam's older brother Rocky (Trevor Morgan) and his friends Clyde (Ryan Kelley) and Marty (Scott Mechlowicz) plan to pretend it's Sam's birthday to "invite" George on a boat trip in which they would dare him to strip naked, jump in the lake, and run home naked. But when Sam, his girlfriend Millie (Carly Schroeder), Rocky, and Clyde see George as not much of a bad guy, they want to call off the plan, but Marty refuses. Will the plan go ahead as planned?  Written by Seth Waters *AshTFrankFurter2*

It all begins in a small Oregon town, when shy Sam (RORY CULKIN) confesses to his protective older brother Rocky that he is getting pummeled daily by the towering school bully, George. Together, they plan the perfect payback, inviting George on a birthday river trip tailor-made to end in the bully's humiliation. Rocky's pals Clyde and Marty and Sam's budding girlfriend Millie also join the journey, which starts almost immediately with misgivings. Seeing George in a new light, as a lonely kid desperate for friendship and attention, Sam wants to call the whole thing off. But the boat and the plot are already in motion, and no one can foresee the surprises and accidents that are to come. Written by Dé

In Oregon, when the bully George Tooney beats his schoolmate Sam Merric, his older brother Rocky Merric schemes a prank with his two also teenager friends Clyde and Marty seeking revenge. They invite George, Sam and his girlfriend Millie to a boat trip along the river, with the intention of humiliating George and get even. However, Millie convinces Sam to call off the plan and the boys accept in spite of the reluctant Marty. When they decide to play "truth or dare" in the middle of the river, the truth about the prank is disclosed to George and he offends the boys mostly the traumatized Marty, leading the group to an accident with tragic consequences.

Wow. Look at my amazingly retarded posts of the past. Anyway, I knew Ian had posted a thread about this somewhere, I just needed to find it...I just saw Mean Creek and I am lost for words. What a film!

It was an emotional rollercoster, the actors were...amazing.

I was...4, almost 5. Literally, I saw Aliens the day before my 5th birthday 'cause we went to a theme park called American Adventure. They had an Aliens themed ride and I went on it. My Dad told that it was based on a movie - so I'm like "Can I watch it, pwease?" So...we did and I had nightmares for 5 years until I saw it again when I was 10.

I became obessed. I saw Predator later that year too.

Actually, it was also made for the Sega Saturn. I've been playing this on PS1 recently - just brought it for £3 - and I've almost finished the colony. It's not a bad game, pretty atmospheric and tense at times.

I've got no problem with doing say, another new trilogy but with a different character. A3 was the perfect end to Ripley's story and we should have started a new one.

I've also been reading it - I'm about halfway through. But from the reviews I've read, I'm not at the really interesting bits yet. It's pretty enjoyable but I think this English translation could do with a go-over by someone who's native language is English. It sometimes feels like I'm reading a script with a Pakled cast - Star Trek reference, go search Memory Alpha.

You guys should get AJL! Some of us from Galaxy have downloaded it and we get together for a game like most days.

There isn't one. It's just a repackage that should work on most XP PCs.
