    Speaking of terrible movies....has anyone see the trailer for R.I.P.D. ?

    It's an exact plot ripoff of Dead Like Me from Showtime....and technically they already MADE a movie of it....
    but seriously, this plot doesnt even TRY to be at all different from Dead Like Me:

    Guy dies....finds out he's now a grim reaper and has to catch the lost souls of others who have died and dont know where they are. People can see him, but he looks different than his actual appearance that way people he knew dont recognize him.

    all they did in this movie was make the lost souls into demons. its literally an exact clone of Dead Like Me.

    My sister goes "I want to see that!" and I laughed because it didn't look good at all... lol

    I guess I wouldn't like Dead Like Me

    for what it's worth, despite their bouts with legal issues, i really like both those guys alot. both played for the Yanks too. Though, Straw was just a part timer for us really.

    Yeah, they had a lot of sci-fi-ish ****.
