"Try so hard"??

Okay. I totally enjoy your posts. But you do realize that he whipped your ass here right? He did so in a loving way dripping with gentleness, but nonetheless he made you WERK!!

Most of her personality is derived from two or three conversations throughout three whole movies, which makes for a pretty weak character.

He answered all of this succinctly. Is it possible that you're splitting hairs or simply dissatisfied with what are clearly sound, unbiased answers? Why do you think I let him respond to you versus me handling your inquiries? You would've said, "Blah blah LS, we all know you love Storm, etc.," and would've blown me off.

The Guard loves no one. He only loves the facts.

I couldn't agree with you more. Which is why we need a reboot my friend.
