  1. I like it, with a bit of Harlock thrown in too. Let's rip up more of the childhood heroes.
  2. That’s true, and I for one am glad that SpaceX is out there. They tend to get a lot of press for their failures,but that’s what ultimately allows them to succeed, rapid and repeated experimentation. After all, their starship rocker blew up again on Thursday, and how many rockets were lost before they succeeded on their first landing in the ocean. They are still beholden to Government money after a fashion because that’s what keeps the lights on. But the earlier stages was largely funded in private I believe.
  3. What this launch hopefully will do is to either spur ULA to better things or just kill ULA altogether. I'm fine with either result, because if there is one thing Musk has demonstrated, it's that there is no such thing as too high a barrier to entry, especially if you have grit backed up by some money. Better yet, if ULA dies, there is a going to be other companies that will pick up the slack.
  4. It will be good to have an American made manned space craft again. Whether you like him or not, Musk has revolutionized the launch business. Without him, we’d still be stuck with the Russians or praying that a miracle happens and ULA comes through.
  5. Just a little? I was expecting a lot.
  6. Does it involve smoking hot sexy green aliens??? No... not the stage after facehuggers. Give me a Captain's Captain... a Kirk. One who doesn't compromise his true values, which is leaving his seed across the galaxy as he explores...
  7. The Batman movies aren’t bad, the JL new 52 were less interesting. I hope they go back to the Bruce Timm era, if Filoni is who people should go to for SW, then Timm is the guy to do DCAU. his Batman series and JL were pretty good.
  8. Nice to kind of know where the Viper monkey came from, to me the F-16 will always be the Fighting Falcon, I think that was the original name. As for the F-35, 6 internal AMRAAM, curious to see how they fit that in, perhaps we can start calling that variant the “Fat Lightning”
  9. You forgot to mention... No Ewok, no seacows giving green milk, and NO JAR-JAR... That is racism.... or at least animalism
  10. Of the new movies, I would say Rogue One was rewatchable, TFA is kind of second.... and there is no third.
  11. Alright, what I've always wanted to see, Thor vs Batman. BRING IT ON. Actually, can we have Lady Thor vs Batman... ha ha, I'm thinking of the various Hishe that can come from there already.
  12. You know, reading that board makes me want to watch Bayverse transformers. May be they will have a diplomatic solution for once, like how the real world works. Where the Sith and the Jedi gets together and hug it out.
  13. Yeah... well.... not the same as the original... I mean who is he going to buy? And with what money?
  14. Oh no, the end has come... the post Sideshow Bob era has begun. it will either be glorious... or it will be hiatus for another decade.
  15. I am curious, with a blended wing design like this, why are the engines on the outside? It seems somewhat counterintuitive, wouldn't that just create drag?
  16. Interesting. I hope they succeed with this, and we can start to forget the Bay era crap that has persisted for the last decade plus.
  17. well, I agree that it would not likely happen.... but hey it isn’t out of the question. There can always be a side story that is down and dirty, look at how Fox did with their Marvel content. You can bet some Disney execs have considered the idea at least. The main playground is still very nice, but then there is this gritty dirty corner. Appeal to the audience. Go after a different segment.
  18. Seriously what we need is R rated Star Wars. Let the scoundrels be real scoundrels, let the megalomaniac bad guy be someone that can be feared, who isn’t above unleashing all sorts of horrors and expletives. imagine if Kylo screamed “ frakk you, Dad” as he ran Han through with his lightsaber, that would provide a little more ooomph. and on the good guy side, we get Cassian Andor unchained... ha ha... that would be hilarious. I am on the side of right and I do what it takes to win as he blows up an Imperial depot while causing a ton of collateral damage to nearby Ewok kids. And when the whiny parent comes crying, he uses them as meat shields. i would like to see Disney have the stones to do that.
  19. Vulture.... wooot.... Sony has a second lease on life, they are never going to surrender the rights to Spider-Man.
  20. That's harsh, Finn does have another character trait, he is also a Poe fanboy.... Remember how he was fawning over Poe during that fighter scene about "that's one hell of a pilot?" If they'd only gone ahead and explored that relationship on screen.
  21. See, so you’d take radiation poisoning of JJ Trek.... hahaha. This just really means JJ trek wasn’t that bad... after all, radiation poisoning is more survivable.
