  • Usually, in any situation, it's the women you have to get right, guys don't care all that much, as long as they look reasonably like themselves and not TOO much like their crazy uncle. I recall a ...
  • Not to be a wise guy, but if you don't know or remember which version provides the most realistic rendition of the original scene, does it matter all that much? As long as it is consistent in its ...
