    I guess this needs to be posted here, now.

    Only $450 million...how will all of those Disney executives feed their children this Christmas?

  10. THE LAST JEDI - Movie discussion and critique

    No question. I'm sure the Death Star was probably literally built to avoid a land war on Kashyyyk. Because I'm not sure Palpy could clone troops fast enough to keep up with the pile of bodies a Wookie infantry would pile up. In other news: Star Wars opens to a modest $450M global. :)

    They sunk it for me as well. If it had been the Wookiee home planet (as originally conceived)? Well... I could believe a planet of giant, unarmed sasquatches kicking the living s#!t out of the Empire’s finest.

    The Ewoks completely crash that movie for me. I don't hate it, but...I just can't with the Ewoks.
  13. The Year I Gave Up on STAR TREK

    Oh no, I wont leave this forum or the friendships I made here. I am just changing my focus and paying attention to what makes me feel good. Right now is MARVEL movies, Netflix TV Series, 1940s classic comics and new animes, and boy its a lot of stuff. But I love here, I will no leave. I will just not discuss currwent TREK anymore. My best wishes to all of you and lets make 2018 the best year yet ! Gus
  14. The Year I Gave Up on STAR TREK

    Well, first I hope you have a wonderful time and a Happy New Year! As for your decision to ‘leave’ Star Trek? I understand. Just hoping you don’t leave our merry band on this forum; we always appreciate you (even if we tease you; it’s all in love, of course...).
  15. The Year I Gave Up on STAR TREK

    Well, I am taking my leave of absence from this forum for the next two weeks as I will be traveling to my family's old country city and farm for this period. Note that 2017 was the year that I gave up completely on the STAR TREK franchise. A love and a passion which began in 1980 with the release of STAR TREK THE MOTION PICTURE here in Brazil has ended fffffor now..... I will not watch a dark and somber piece like STAR TREK DISCOVERY that completely changes the continuity, the character archetypes and 50 years of the official cronology of STAR TREK. I am not happy about the news of a R-Rated Tarantino movie even if takes place in the TNG universe post-Nemesis. I am not happy the way CBS is using the STAR TREK license - in novels, comic books and even fan films, cancelling stuff from the right to the left. Now, its time to be more mature about my hobbies. I still love the MARVEL and DC movies and still will collect Golden and Silver Age comic books and sci-fi animes like YAMATO 2202, but the line about being upset with stuff must be drawn here. I will just relax and smell the roses in 2018. I sincerely hope you too do this from time to time. My best regards and Happy New Year. See you in 2018 ! Gustavo Leao Belo Horizonte - Brazil
  16. THE LAST JEDI - Movie discussion and critique

    I was at a Christmas party last night, and the guests were almost completely divided by those who’d seen “The Last Jedi” and those who hadn’t. It was a weird kind of movie-imposed segregation; if a non-viewer passed by, the rest of us would suddenly steer our conversation towards non-spoilerish talk. It was verbal gymnastics... But the overriding consensus was that "The Last Jedi" was a good, solid though somewhat flawed entry in Star Wars canon. Most thought it was better than “The Force Awakens” (I was one of the few holdouts on that one; as I thought TFA was a tighter movie with more surefooted editing and direction) and most agreed that “Rogue One” was better (on that score, I agreed). Everyone agreed that it was better than the prequels and even “Return of the Jedi.”

    Vie is contaminating you. I demand that this be stopped.
  20. Star Trek: Discovery occurs in an alternate universe

    Is the TMP E a great technical leap though? Is it super, radically technologically superior to the TOS E? But that IS an interesting theory that I hadn't considered before.
