Re: Watchmen[edit]

You took the right step in asking me your questions on my talk page. I'll respond here, and you can respond either here or on my talk page. First of all, rumors are not attributable. They usually come from someone who has an undisclosed relationship with the studio, like an anonymous scooper. When Ain't It Cool News or a similar site reports something, the only way it would be attributable is if the information is coming from an interview or a set visit -- basically, information made public without being secretive. In addition, the Keanu Reeves rejection came from a fan club, which is not attributable, either. Such a site is lacking in a neutral stance (being pro-Reeves) and also lacking an editorial oversight as opposed to something like The New York Times (for film coverage, anyway). Lastly, I guess the inclusion of John Cusack is more a matter of opinion. He has been part of the rumor mill for previous Watchmen incarnations (as I found out when I researched the project's development history), but there was never any confirmation that he was actually considered. It just seems that to acknowledge his interest is to say that the previous rumors had substance. In any case, the current casting information has come directly from the director as well as Ron Perlman. Jude Law was also part of a rumor mill, so like John Cusack, his interest is not warranted unless he's actually dealt with the studio in a manner. Another recent bit you might have encountered is this, where Patrick Wilson seems to hint that he has the role. A similar case was encountered with Dominic Purcell for The Incredible Hulk, where he never explicitly said that he was going to be part of the sequel, but a lot of people were led by his tone that he was. If you think that Cusack and Law should be mentioned in the article, feel free to initiate discussion on the talk page. It's a more public forum, and we can get different people's opinions that way. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 01:27, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Sorry if that was overwhelming. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. I'll be glad to help explain things. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 01:30, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

The choices seem pretty good to me. I like the choices for Dreiberg, Dr. Manhattan, and Rorschach. I don't know about the one portraying the Comedian, though, or the one for Laurie. Patrick Wilson was pretty decent in Hard Candy, and I think he'll do fine. Gibbons, the illustrator for the graphic novel, supports the project, so that's also a good sign. Miller's statement obviously shows he doesn't know what the project is going to be like, so maybe there'll be a follow-up statement. Especially compared to what he said about the Hayter script. My major concern is about how it will be directed, because Snyder has a very flashy background (music videos, Dawn of the Dead, 300), and Watchmen isn't flashy at all. I hope Snyder can do the frame match for Watchmen as he did for 300, without crazy camera work. —Erik (talkcontrib) - 03:52, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Also, you are welcome to have discussion with me about the film or anything else on my talk page! I like science fiction myself. Have you had a chance to see Sunshine? (I expanded the article myself.) —Erik (talkcontrib) - 11:09, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

re: New Found Glory's Musical Genres[edit]

Well the thing is, NFG is not emo, it has no emo influences at all. BUT, Wikipedia is all about sources. So you have the right to put Emo back in the genres (if you have the sources for it) Sadly, that's the way Wikipedia works. Sorry for the inconveniences--Kmaster (talk) 03:44, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

re:New Found Glory[edit]

Ah, that makes perfect sense. However, I think you should consider removing the fourth reference. Although it is a third-party source, it is hardly reliable, since it is written by an amateur reviewer. However, the other three sources look good and seem to support your "emo" claim.

Yeah, no problem. ŁittleÄlien¹8² (talk\contribs) 19:38, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
I think I may remove the fourth "emo" reference, since it is written by an amateur reviewer. Message me on my talk page if you have a problem with this. ŁittleÄlien¹8² (talk\contribs) 00:31, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I just wanted to say that I really appreciate your recent work on the List of Narnian creatures article. It's ridiculous what kind of stuff continues to seep into it. S. Luke (talk) 08:34, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
