  1. Rated R Star Trek is a dumb idea.

    That's it right there. That is all he does. He's a one note writer. Granted, it's fun to watch here and there but it really is all he's capable of doing. Exposition+exposition+more talking+a lot more talking+ and then the shit hits the fan. So he's going to do that with a Star Trek shell? Nope. Not interested. I think constraining to make it family friendly might be the way for him to be creative. Both Star Wars and Star Trek have been family friendly. I haven't seen any pressure on Star Wars to 'adult' it and it's doing quite fine as a franchise. Get better writers and you'll get the pay off.
  2. THE LAST JEDI - Movie discussion and critique

    I'm one of those peeps!
  3. THE LAST JEDI - Movie discussion and critique

    Just to be clear is this a SPOILER free discussion? I haven't 'studied' the trailers but I'm grateful that they don't seem to reveal much about plot and the action scenes are quite generic. I'm happy with that.
  4. Tarantino Plans R Rated TREK 4, Script Prep Begins

    Oh man. Not sure what to think about this. Trek and Tarantino are total opposites. I understand he's a fan but I'm unsure if he'll be able to make a Trek movie or will it be a Tarantino movie with Trek embellishments.
  5. Blade Runner Sequel

    Forgive me for saying this but I thought the amount of t!#$ in the movie would have at least appealed to that moronic crowd but I guess the subject matter is too 'high brow'. I'm curious if the movie did well abroad. My hypothesis being that we Americans are too dumb as a society to enjoy something like this but perhaps other non-video game cultures can.
  6. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    To add to your thought, I also don't understand why the reporters ask these questions of the actors. It's not their choice. They play the role the director, producers, screenwriters, etc.. wrote the character. The actor's job is to do their bidding. I feel sorry for him and Routh for getting these questions over and over again.
  7. Episode 1.9: “Into the Forest I Go” Discussion Thread

    I hadn't thought about that at all. Interesting. I was wondering where that character went all the while thinking I must have missed some dialog explaining his disappearance. While it does make sense that Ash is Voq I wish he wasn't. I like the 'broken soldier/sleeper agent' aspect. It does bring an interesting dramatic element to Star Trek. I liked how he froze when confronted with L'Rell. I suppose that could also be explained by some type of brainwashing or that deep down inside he knows who he is and his relationship with her. If he is Voq then there are some real heavy questions here: surgery, psychological implantation, etc...How does L'Rell do all of that given that Klingons aren't necessarily a species that care much for science, at least science not related to war and in the middle of what seems to be a Klingon civil war. Her manner of being is more akin a Romulan using deception to get by rather than honor. If she has that capability then why wouldn't she then be a Romulan agent using the same procedure to change a Klingon into a human? While this may all be cool it may too convoluted for my tastes.
  8. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    How Gal Gadot works out. No need to spend your money. You're welcome.
  9. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    I might watch Thor again...if even just to hone in the point to the DC idiots.
  10. DC Movies Crisis ? JUSTICE LEAGUE in Chaos ?

    "Good" might be too nice from what I'm hearing. I'm still trying to understand why Aquaman sounds like a country boy.
  11. Episode 1.9: “Into the Forest I Go” Discussion Thread

    Funny that you put up the Lost in Space comparison. My thoughts after watching this episode compared Lorca to Dr. Smith. Oh...definitely not the hammy but fun original interpretation but more along Oldman's interpretation. Dangerous and morally ambiguous. You could never quite tell if he was good or bad entirely since there were flashes of both or if simply the circumstances dictated his behaviour. My other thought is that somehow he is from another parallel reality and he's trying to get home, borrowing a page from CW's The Flash.
  12. Blade Runner Sequel

    I took great joy from the length for the reasons you state. Another reason is that I am tired of the "wham, bam, thank you ma'am" type of of movie. Of course those are fun too but as a culture we're too short-term memory to enjoy something. After all we're still talking about a movie, not a book.

    That's it in a nutshell

    SPOILERS!!!! I have found the previous Thor movies to be mediocre. This third movie, to me, continues to be mediocre. Just different. I appreciate that they tried to do something different because tonally the previous didn't leave much of a mark or memory but this was yucky. I just don't see Thor as a comedic character. Maybe if there was more of a story arc with him that shows him now as a much more relaxed individual then ok. But he just goes from relatively uptight stoic guy to what we see in this movie. It's weird. I also don't know whose idea was it to have an 80's motif to it. The music, the tone, the gaudy graphics(even the poster). While LZ's Immigrant Song worked well the first time, it really felt forced the second time...especially considering that Shrek has used it similarly. One good thing I liked was that Jane Foster was nowhere around this. That's a dud of a character on par with Kirsten Dunst's Mary Jane Watson. Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster was quite fun. Cate Blanchett hammed it up big time. I wanted more of her than Thor frankly. She seemed more interesting to me. Miss me some Lady Sif but considering what happened to the others then I'm happy she's somewhere out there with the possibility of showing up down the road. To summarize, meh....

    Can we do spoilers on this thread?
