Considering that it was TFA that puts Luke in self-imposed exile away from all of his friends and leaves Leia's little rebellion to crumble with only a mcGuffin map left to "find him", I'm not sure how you can write Luke as anything but a disillusioned old man as a reason for his self-exile.

Actually, given Luke’s history of being lied to about his father, I'm really interested in why Luke (and to a lesser extent) Leia wouldn’t tell Rey about Palpatine. "Trust, it was much better that I found out when Vader told me."

I fail to see how having a character taking down an entire space fleet in an upper atmosphere battle with force lightning is respectful to the property and to character standpoints. Unless "being respectful" is shorthand for "it'll look cool and the transformer movies didn't have a budget for this."

I just find it funny that you know there is someone who got paid 6 figures who argued "We better call this Star Trek:Picard because star trek fans will be very confused if it's just called Picard. Look at all the money lost on James Bond movies because they didn't start the title with James Bond Colon".

When cable first began, you were paying money with there promise that there would not be commercials.... It didn’t take long for that to change. Now due to competing streaming services, combined with the cost of producing your own content and the need to keep your monthly subscription costs down to something Read more

I find TNG to be pretty dated, but I pretty much love DS9 once you get past the first season.

I always preferred Pulaski to Crusher because I liked the Pulaski / Worf friendship and her hobby/knowledge of Klingon stuff, while Crusher was just there to stand around and talk about hypo-sprays.

Is that really true? I've always counted Atari adventure as the first Easter egg, and that was playable.

It’s the way sprites are stored in multiple of two “data chunks” (without getting into the not gritty of why and what a data chunk is). The artist saw that there was a blank space that was unused but was still going to be there anyway taking up data, and had some fun filling up the space.

This sounds very much like the star trek experience in Vegas, which was indeed very cool for it's time. I can imagine with a Disney-fied budget and current technology of trackless cars that it would be a lot of fun to experience.

I remember episode 4 being in the opening scroll in 1977 as well, but not “A New Hope”.

Given the generality of those stats, I wonder how badly those stats get skewed by sports games.

Actually, the “you suck you only have an Atari while I have an Intellivision” fights was a real thing. It's just that is was contained to your close friends because the internet didn't exist to screen at people you don't know who live on the other side of the world.

I got the sense that the main characters were filmed at completely different times than the monster suit guys. Or quite possibly, there was never more than one monster suit to begin with. Aside from the scene with cage, you pretty much never saw any of the characters in the same shot with a monster. It was kind of odd Read more

It’s kind of funny that as I was watching, I kept thinking how the Witcher didn’t “earn” the right to be showing of need naked boobies, but I couldn’t put a finger on why. The best I could come up (and it’s a really silly reason)with was that at least in the old Conan movies, everything was hot and dusty and sweaty Read more

I’m not sure why you’re focusing on “electrifying onscreen romantic relationships,” though, as opposed to “casual onscreen acknowledgment of romantic relationships.” I don’t think anyone’s particularly looking for the former. Read more
