  1. With the exception of Skyfall which IMHO was quite good, I wholeheartedly agree that the recent MI movies have been infinitely more enjoyable than the most recent Bond movies. -b.
  2. That's how I felt about my subsequent viewings, I still maintain that this one movie could have easily been an entirely trilogy but that's been discussed already. Personally I'd love to see more of Rey, Poe and Finn - IF - they mature his character. But if I had to choose one of the Sequel Trilogy main characters again on-screen it'd definitely be Rey. I'll keep my fingers crossed. -b.
  3. Adding great feedback for @max928! Great communication, fast shipping and extremely good follow-up, I'd definitely recommend and would do business with again. Thanks! -b.
  4. Ok cool, something to look forward to if I should happen to lose faith before then lol. Thank you! -b.
  5. Might have to give this a go. Not sure why exactly but I gave up on S1, but I've heard only good things so I'll add this to the ever growing watchlist of programs. -b.
  6. Agreed, and MI: Fallout was fantastic, if McQuarrie is in the for the next two then so am I. -b.
  7. LOL! Basically Just got back from viewing number two. I enjoyed it much more this time because the “expectations” and anxiety of will this, or will this not suck were gone. I saw or read a review that said this installment could have easily been stretched to three movies and been a better trilogy than what we got. And I agree. The movie had soooo much to reconcile and accomplish that it felt bloated. But it was a fun ride. -b.
  8. You're probably not wrong about JJ and his style of movie making. The real shame in this is that the Sequel Trilogy could have, and should have, been so much better. I don't hate them like others seem to (and go out of their way to constantly remind us of that fact), but the single biggest failure is that there wasn't a narrative road-map. I mean all they had to do is look across the hallway at Marvel. Also wasted is the acting talent, which was also significantly better than the Prequels, and a lot of the OT. You'll get that, I'm going to my second viewing tonight. If I had to rank the Sequel Trilogy it would be RoS, TFA and finally TLJ. And I still rate them heads and tails above the Prequel Trilogy which outside of a few really nice light-saber duels I hated. Anyway, it's nice to see rational posts (in favor of, or against the movie) sprinkled here and there in this thread, I'm sure the regularly scheduled unhinged negativity will return soon enough. -b.
  9. Pretty sure I read or saw someone else make the same assertion about watching Star Trek and thinking that JJ really wanted to direct Star Wars instead. On that note, even after reading all about it, I still don't get the hate that The Force Awakens gets, but I digress. Can't lie, I laughed/cringed/sighed/silently raged when Spock yelled that nonsense, Star Trek: Into Darkness was just an outright cluster. And I hated how hard the writers went with the antagonistic relationship Spock and Kirk had going back to Star Trek, it made believing that they'd become friends really hard to believe. All the way up to and through Star Trek Beyond. I'll reserve judgement on this new Trek until the final trailer and/or I see the movie - IF - it gets made. -b.
  10. Just to be clear, I agree that I don't want a Tarantino Trek movie. Also, I grew up with Trek, I'd like to see it do well and appease hardcore and casual fans alike, but there were many times that I found Trek "boring". And if legacy-Trek were viable as a property there wouldn't have been a crack for JJ Trek to slip into and 'Star Trek' wouldn't have been as lauded as a much needed new vision when it first came out. With that, I agree, in that Trek need(s) to be refreshed, again, the challenge is figuring out how to do that well. -b.
  11. Agreed re: Tarantino, but I think JJ’s vision was more Action Adventure than anything else. And with that the “spirit” of Trek wasn’t well represented. Agree about the attempt to deliver on the original series, agree to disagree about if Beyond was good or not. -b.
  12. There's a part of me that wants to strongly disagree simply because Beyond was such a better movie than Nemesis and also there aren't many similarities from a plot point. At least none that I can remember or that stand-out. I still maintain that Beyond was fun and highly underrated. And yeah, the directing credits for the guy that they have tapped for this new Trek are uuuugggggllllyyy. -b.
