I love J.J.'s alt universe as long as I keep reminding myself that he is rebooting the franchise. Frankly, anyone who wanted this movie to be a remake of Wrath of Kahn or "Space Seed," the episode where you actually find out everything about Kahn, is an idiot in my opinion. I've heard it screamed on forums that Cumberbatch is great, but he didn't get to be KAHN in the sacrosanct, undiluted, original series way they wanted, but you know what? Cumberbatch can walk over my cold corpse any day (feel free to interpret that anyway you want to) and his Kahn is just as compelling as Montalban's. I don't want to sit through a remake of the Wrath of Kahn. I want new, fresh material, and new takes on the most frightening villains and that is exactly what J.J. gave me.
I get my news from The Guardian. They tend to have a more balanced approach to world news and give summarized reports of ongoing crises as new information arises.
David Tennant plays a great Hamlet, so his version of that would have to be my favorite book/play to movie adaptation...least favorite? Not that I don't love the movie, but, in terms of keeping true to the book/graphic novel, V for Vendetta drives me crazy.
I never really got Buffy....
Fezzik and Inigo Montoya! Andre the Giant wins everything.
"Go away or I'll call the Brute Squad."
"I'm on the Brute Squad."
"You *are* the Brute Squad!"
I definitely agree. A whole day of table top games and making fun of Wesley Crusher sounds like heaven to me.
Oh yeah, I was so excited for her to be a continuing villain if they decided to move on with a Nightwing storyline, but no. They killed her off.
I'm always the one who read the book(s) or comicbook(s) beforehand...my friend's hated watching Chris Nolan's Batman Trilogy with me, especially The Dark Knight Rises.
I gave up complaining for Lent once...lasted about 4 days before all my pent up rage at stupid people caused me to transform into She-Hulk and destroy half of Chicago. Never doing that again. Totally ruined my favorite pair of jeans.
