Welcome to the forums Will, I hope you have a great time here! Also, a welcome to everyone else I've missed saying hi to during my forum hiatus. ^_^

General MIA/'Where Have You Been?' Thread
We all have times in our lives where, unfortunately, the internet and our favorite places to go on them start to take less priority, at least for a little while, and we are forced to kind of disappear without warning for a little while. Having just recently been through one of those periods myself and feeling like I owe everyone an explanation, I decided to make this thread - but rather than have it just be my little apologetic soapbox, I'll leave it stickied at the top here for whenever any of us have to take a little break, planned or otherwise, and want to let our forum friends know about it.
So yeah, in my own case, I've been MIA for…geez...little over a month, I think? Right as I was wanting to get back into the swing of posting here more than ever before, thanks to having internet at my place now, an unexpected event popped up on my life horizon. And that event was my mom announcing that she was finally getting a divorce from my stepdad. Without getting too into it, I've always disliked the man greatly, so this was music to my ears, but it regrettably did involve me being mixed up in it for a good while. Hey, I even had the cops called on me, technically! Nothing too exciting despite how that might sound though. :P
At any rate though, I'm back now, and thankfully it doesn't look like I missed the start of another tournament or anything, so it looks like I got back just in time!

RE: A Night At The Show: General Movie Disscussion Thread
And I just got back from seeing that very movie - Transformers: Age of Extinction I mean - last night. It still has issues of course (I don't think any of us expected it to not have any), but overall, I thought it was a pretty good movie actually. The Transformers themselves, at least the Autobots anyway, actually get some pretty good characterization again, and most of the humor was actually funny rather than being infantile (looking at you, 'wrecking balls'). Honestly, I still think the original live-action movie is the best of the lot, but this one would easily be the second best.
RE: Naruto Disscusion Thread **Spoilers**
@ Soul_Chaos - Oh don't get me wrong, I still have severe problems with the arc we're in now as a whole, and the arc before that, and most of them before that. Ever since we entered the 'Shippuden' era, things have been a really uneven balancing act between 'decent' and 'god-awful', very rarely has it hit anything out of the park as of late. But the whole revelation about Kaguya at all, rather than keeping Madara as the final villain, was what I was praising, more-so than her actions so far.
And I just read the latest chapter, and it actually did hit a home run for once, at least with Naruto's course of action. THAT'S the #1 hyperactive, knucklehead ninja that got me into the series to begin with, heh.
RE: MEN of MANLINESS: Round 3: Battle 7: Kamina vs Oland
Definitely gotta go with Kamina, who is so manly, that he even out-manlies Armstrong.
RE: MEN of MANLINESS: Round 3: Battle 5: Rider vs Kotetsu
Kotetsu, with ease. C'mon Wild Tiger!
