Well, I happen to like the Star Trek reboots (though I haven't seen the last one yet), so perhaps there's (a new) hope for me with this one.

Will go and see it this weekend with my son. Actually didn't The Force Awakens was that good, much preferred Rogue One.

I get the doubts about superhero movies having wasted 2 hours on Justice League. However, Logan and Ragnarok would be in my top 5 of the year. Dunkirk wouldn't!

As they say, each to their own!

I'll see it, no matter what, just because I'm a huge SW fan. I just don't get my hopes up anymore, and I usually have a pretty good time.

 

I also enjoy most of the Marvel movies (as someone earlier said they did NOT - each to his own), but I have to admit, that I found the latest Thor film a bit boring. As usual, great effects, great costumes, but this time they couldn't decide if they were a drama or a comedy. There was so much slapstick humor in it, that it kind of ruined the otherwise dark and momentous storyline. I can't recommend it.


In progress: 1/32 Trumpy P-38L (very slowly), and some others.....

Completed in 2017: Trumpy 109E-4

Previous Completions: Hasegawa F6F-3 Hellcat, Hase Me-163 Jagerfaust , 1/16 Fokker DVII Scratchbuilt Wooden Skeleton

Did they use Buchons instead of real 109s? That would be a deal breaker for me.

 

:rofl:

I gave up on Star Wars as soon as I found out not all the ship models used in the filming were in scale to one another, and sometimes they didn't even build the same vehicles in the same scale as each other. I think one of the main ships in the original trilogy was built in like two or three different sizes alone!

 

If they can't get stuff like that right, they can't have my money. I'd much rather save it and treat myself to something nice like a Dragon Black Label kit.

I have to say that as a former U.S. Marine, that I find it insulting that well trained soldiers are so easily defeated by furballs and rebel scum.

Once I realized that Stormtroopers have apparently never been to the rifle range, the series pretty much lost me. However, the missus is a huge Star Wars fan, so it's my destiny to go see it.

As for Star Trek, I love all of the original and all of the latest reboots. The degeneration and voyager were very disappointing, while DS 9 had some glimmers of inspiration.

I still remember going to the early Saturday showing of the first prequel (was that the Phantom Menace? I think I have blocked it out...). I snuck in 2 chocolate chip bagels, my favorite. By the time I finished those, I already realized that they were going to be the best part of the whole experience. I was not wrong...

You talkin' to me? Well I'm the only one here.

Just because we can't obtain perfection doesn't mean that we shouldn't strive for improvement.

I'm a cinnamon raisin guy, but to be honest I have eaten very few since leaving NYC over a decade ago. Where I am now the etiquette calls for a Chick-Fil-A chicken biscuit and a sweet tea, or a Starbucks coffee.

 

I ain't having none of that.

But didn't they look smashing in their season one uniforms?

I was afraid of that. I'll go see it regardless but already didn't have too high hopes.
Will be interesting to see the extremes as usual for the SW movie opinions. Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic have it scoring highly.

 

The teaser trailer had me excited, but when the official trailer came out I had a bad feeling.  Metacritic et al are not to be trusted.

 

Probably should have just remade "The Empire Strikes Back". The only reason "The Force Awakens" was decent was because of its "similarities" to "A New Hope". Oh well, I have decided that, for the most part, I am not Hollywood's demographic, and if I find one or two films a year that are watchable, I'm fortunate. I'm looking forward to seeing Bladerunner on Amazon, its more my speed. And don't get me started on Superhero films. UGH.... :frantic:

 

Bladerunner 2049 is very well made - not as good as the original imho, but a visually satisfying, very good story, great acting.  Well worth watching.

 

I take those Tomato and IMDB scores with an entire salt shaker. I wouldn't be surprised if they're on the film industries payroll.

 

Ditto.
