Overall, an enjoyable film. I laughed throughout, found it an enjoyable movie. Nothing really ground breaking, but Josh Brolin really captured a young Agent K, even sounded like him, I look forward to seeing more films with him in it. One note, if you go see it in theaters, save your money and don't bother with 3D.

Great book series. First book had some mild formatting issues, however he's fixed those in the second and third books.
I've enjoyed reading the first two books. The third book just came out, and I'm reading through it now. Mordecai's parents are attacked when he's an infant. His father killed, and his mother mortally wounded. She manages to escape with their child, but knowing that she's dying, she leaves him in the care of a blacksmith and his wife, who being unable to have children, raise him as their own child at the dying mother's request. The story picks up again with Mordecai as a young adult, shortly before he discovers the gift he inherited from his father's side.
The first book is free right now, and the other two are worth the price:

Seriously, if you haven't started this book series, you should! As fantastic as it is on HBO (and Peter Dinklage is fantastic as Tyrion.) the book series is beyond great. It's in the Fantasy genre, but fantasy doesn't dominate the story. George RR Martin seems to have found a good balance between the two.
