[quote]I'd say Star Trek 2009 was closer to the plot of Nemesis than it was to Beyond [/quote] It also certainly didn't help that Nero looked nearly identical to Shinzon....

re: Finally Got Around to Watching Star Trek: Beyond - Bankshot
[quote]Insurrection is like a 90 minute episode of the TV show. [/quote] It does have that look and feel. It seemed like I had seen an episode of TNG that was similar to the plot as well, which was also an issue. If they're going to release it as a major motion picture, they had to step up thei...

re: Which NBA Franchise without a title will win one first? - Bankshot
[quote]the NBA has no parity[/quote] As of the current set up, you can pretty much say that the NBA champion will come from one of three teams. Whoever LeBron plays for, the Warriors, or Spurs. I don't see that changing soon without major free agent shifts. ...

re: Finally Got Around to Watching Star Trek: Beyond - Bankshot
[quote]Star Trek: Insurrection [/quote] The boring plot and subpar effects took me out of this one quickly. Star Trek V had the same problems. Those were the two worst Trek films IMO....

re: Who is ready for another crappy Transformers movie? - Bankshot
[quote]It was laborious, there was no need for the movie to be almost 3 hours long. Then I bust out laughing at the end when Optimus just flies off [/quote] No kidding. It was bizarre ending to me as well. My thoughts were, where the heck does he think he's going, not knowing who he's looking f...

re: Rain Man Still Holds Up - Bankshot
[quote]I also think the story is far more about Cruise's Charlie Babbitt than the Rain Man. Cruise is the only character that really changes during the movie and he is most affected by the introduction of Ray. His performance was also just as deserving as Hoffman's for an Oscar. [/quote] Yes, Cru...

re: Lebron, Kyrie, and Kevin are sitting out (possibly) tonight's TNT game at OKC - Bankshot
[quote]MJ[/quote] Serious question, how many regular season games did MJ "sit out" of during his career? (Besides being out of the NBA for close to 2 seasons in the mid-90's)....

re: Is ESPN giving up on Sportscenter ? - Bankshot
If they want to have a SC completely dedicated to the social-political stuff happening in sports, fine. Just please isolate it to the 6 PM SC and leave the late night SC to real sports news and highlights and leave race and politics out of it. Oh, and let me add, I don't care who does and doesn'...

re: Question about Aliens - Prometheus related - Bankshot
The ship in Alien was flown by an engineer, but we don't know exactly how long it has been there. It could have been crashed there after the events shown in the hologram in the temple during Prometheus or years before that even took place. There was a beacon from the ship telling others to avoid t...

re: Most painful loss in sports history? - Bankshot
Most painful for me personally was the 1985 CWS loss to Miami in the 9th inning, when, if we win, we're in the national championship game. There were a couple of Egg Bowl losses that really stung. I've seen the Dallas Cowboys lose heartbreaking games in my life that hurt, but not when they had a l...

re: Watched ALIEN and ALIENS for the first time this weekend - Bankshot
[quote]They're almost different genres. Alien is a great horror movie. Aliens is a great action movie. [/quote] Exactly, I love both films. But, Cameron had to change the angle when he made Aliens because it would have been impossible to match the horror feel of Alien....
