re: So wait - there's another crappy Star Trek movie coming out? - Ace Midnight

[quote]DS9 [/quote] Highly underrated - probably better on balance than TNG - more consistent, and with much, much better recurring villains (something that TOS and TNG struggled with, other than Q. They wanted a recurring Klingon captain in TOS, but casting problems always croopped up with the ...

[quote]Star Wars? It's always seemed much more WWII than Western to me.[/quote] No idea where WWII is coming from - you have a boy out in a frontier town - bad guys come and kill his people, so he leaves everything to go fight them. If anything, Star Wars is more fantasy than scifi, in vibe -...

re: So wait - there's another crappy Star Trek movie coming out? - Ace Midnight
[quote]Roddenberry himself marketed the original series as "Wagon Train to the Stars". [/quote] He was playing to the crowd - and he was trying to avoid a gigantic lawsuit - if you look closely, Star Trek was actually a series based strongly on the premise of the film [i]Forbidden Planet[/i]. ...

[quote]run-of-the-mill action film. [/quote] And the thing is - it is not as if there aren't enough mindless action film franchises, filled with fakey, cartoonish special effects, rock/hip-hop soundtracks, with dumbed down writing and acting - (Transformers, FF, Jurassic Park, etc.), already - w...

[quote]you know this is low budget. [/quote] He latched onto John Goodman during Goodman's run of making movies in/around Louisiana - and leveraged that friendship into a decent supporting career. He's not a bad comedian - I saw him way back in the late 80s/early 90s at the (I believe) Grin R...

[quote]There was never an origin movie about the academy years.[/quote] And there still hasn't been. Star Trek (2009) was an abortion - it hit all the action beats the millenials expect to see, without making a lick of sense....

[quote]If there is some kind of incident on set of this movie, my money is on Ace[/quote] If I told you my reaction to that quote (I think I saw it last month or so) was ambivalence, would you believe me? The studio probably thinks the first 2 movies were too "Star Trek-y" too. I still watch ...

re: Are you A Sibling? (Dottie Dropped it Related) - Ace Midnight
[quote]it's kind of like zen.[/quote] Yeah, I went to high school with a Vietnamese kid who could wreck shop in table tennis. He would get up several points, then tank a bunch to let his opponent save face. He would apologize for winning. He was a communist, too, but a nice guy. Beastly p...

re: 100K Net Worth - Ace Midnight
[quote]i assumed 8% return and 5mm of today's dollars by 2047. [/quote] If that holds (and good luck), then $2,100 per month for 32 years, at 8% (starting with $100k now) will put you just over $5 million. And, that would be liquid - not counting your house and whatnot....

1. Yes 2. Older (of 2) 3. No I would never let my sibling (or my children, for that matter) win anything. I used to tank on hands of gin rummy with Mrs. Midnight, but that's different. When she would occasionally catch me, she'd be furious. Otherwise, I play to win, period. I owe my o...
