  1. What non-trek movies have you watched lately?

    I will see it again next weekend. Too much fun from MARVEL Studios (again). A relevant, heroic, emotional and intelligent movie, Gus
  2. Episode 1.15 “Will You Take My Hand?” Discussion Thread

    Interesting article on the USS Enterprise appearance in this episode. I havent seenb this episode, and after reading that article, I kinda know I will not watch it any time soon. Have a good reading. Gus The reveal of the USS Enterprise as led by Captain Pike was a big twist in the season finale of Star Trek: Discovery. The inclusion of the ship has led to a lot of fan debate. While we can’t settle any of those debates today, certainly not before we see what they’re planing to do with the Enterprise in season two, we can do what Trekkies do best, which is to analyze the new “Disco” design of the most famous ship in the Star Trek franchise. The new tweaks to the classic design are certainly interesting, and contain a variety of influences, primarily of course the final version of the classic Enterprise model that was used for The Original Series. There are also details from the pilot version as seen in “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” and the later refit version first seen in The Motion Picture. Also in the mix of influences are the NX-class from Star Trek: Enterprise, and yes, a dash of the Kelvin-universe USS Enterprise as well. Full article :
  3. What non-trek movies have you watched lately?

    Totally agree. Loved every second of BLACK PANTHER. Best super hero movie since SUPERMAN THE MOVIE and THE DARK KNIGHT. Gus

    BOX OFFICE: BLACK PANTHER May Now Be Heading Towards A Mind-Blowing $205 Million Weekend ! Yay ! The movie of the year in my opinion ! Can AVENGERS INFINITY WAR top this one ? Gus

    Just watched the BLACK PANTHER movie, which opened last night here in Brazil. Not only one of the best MARVEL movies, ever, but one of the best super hero movie ever made ! T'Challa, the first black super hero, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in July 1966 for a FANTASTIC FOUR issue, is one hell of a good character, wonderfully played by actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the character fist in CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR. The media is loving the movie too. The film received critical acclaim, with praise for the direction, costume design, action sequences, soundtrack, and performances of the cast, and some calling it one of the best films set in the MCU, and noted its cultural impact. Go watch it this weekend and thank me later ! Highly recommended for fans of a epic adventure, and of course, Marvel comics books. Gus
  6. What was the last non-Trek tv show you watched?

    Watched on DVD this morning for the first time the 1950 serial ATOM MAN VS SUPERMAN, the second Columbia serial starring Kirk Alyn and Noel Neill. Great fun, very low budget. It was not iconic like the George Reeves TV Series, but it was good camp fun. It introduces the character of Lex Luthor, the so-called "Atom Man" from the title. The first live action Superman was fun, but I still think that THE ADBENTURES OF CAPTAIN MARVEL starring Tim Tyler was still the best super hero serial ever made in the 1940s. Gus

  12. Discovery and Me

    I made a decision which I think I woiuld never made in my life. I will not watch STAR TREK DISCOVERY. Watching the trailer was so painfull I almost cried. Mu Star Trek is gone, lost forever, a relic. A friend told me "Gus, let it go.You Star Trek is dead. There is a universe of entertaiment out there, like the Marvel productions" And I thank my good old buddy Carlos for having told me that. I will sample the pilot on Netflix and thats painfull as JJ Trek and the trailer, I will try to not care and try to get my head on other things. My sincere repects to Gene Roddenberry, Gene Coon, Harve Bennett, Rick Berman and Michael Piller for keeping my love for Star Trek for years and years. Now its time for a new generation of fans. I just turned 47 yesterday.My time is up. I dont wanna insult anyone with this post, its just my feelings since yesterday. I will watch THE CAGE tonight. Thanks a lot guys, Gus

  19. It Sounds Like We're Getting A New STAR WARS Trilogy Featuring The Same Cast Of Characters Lucasfilm is finally plotting out what comes next for the Star Wars franchise following the release of J.J. Abrams' Episode IX and it appears as if we can expect some familiar faces to remain... "We’re sitting down now, we’re talking about the next ten years of Star Wars stories, and we’re looking at narratively where that might go," Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy said in the new video in the link below. "Future stories beyond Episode IX with these new characters: Rey, Poe, Finn, BB-8. But we’re also looking at working with people that are interested in coming into the Star Wars world and taking us to places that we haven’t been yet. And that’s exciting too because its a vast galaxy far, far away, so the possibilities are endless." Gus
