Overall I really liked the show and sad to see it go. I guess to some degree there was some repetitiveness to it (inevitable after 12 seasons, perhaps) but looking back, even if it wasn't always great, it was pretty consistently at least good. Still, I think I liked the earlier seasons more than the...

Episode 1: Hard to chose since not much good in this movie - probably just the light saber dual between Darth Maul, Obi Won and Qui Gon. Episode 2: Yoda vs. Dooku Episode 3: Palpatine vs. Yoda Episode 4: Obi Won vs. Vader Episode 5: Luke failing, and then Yoda succeeding, in lifting the X-Wing Episo...

Alita: Battle Angel - rather liked it. The way they did the main character's animation was very well done and unlike a lot of other movies, they avoid the temptation to just go over the top with crazy large CGI battles but the CGI is really well done. Still, its not Star Wars or anything and was try...

A beast of a book, deserving of every accolade its ever received. That said, IMHO both David Lynch's version and the Sci Fi Channel's versions had some good points, but ultimately I think this is a difficult work to translate to the screen, especially with ~2 hours of screen time to work with. But m...

Saw it in the theater a couple months ago - Rami Malek was bloody amazing, my hat is off to him, and if he wins the Oscar for best actor it will be well deserved. But otherwise,it was a pretty meh film - off the top of my head better biopics would include The Aviator and Ray.

Yes, the (relatively) recent version of BattleStar Galactica was a fantastic show. As a kid I was a fan of the original show and was skeptical of the changes they were making (a female Starbuck? Really?) but all my concerns were misplaced. It has a few flaws but they really did a good job on it over...

Only watched the first batch of 9 or 10 episodes so far - I think I heard it just resumed new episodes. I thought it was pretty good so far, especially the first couple of episodes really felt movie quality rather than just TV show quality. Was sad though that Michelle Yeoh was only there for the fi...

Overall, The Next Generation just because that was the Star Trek series that was on when I was growing up and the one that really got me in to it - much more so that ToS and I never got much in to DS9 or Voyager, and not the one with the Quantum Leap guy that came later. I have to say though, the ne...

The only problem with Pandora is it seems to get pretty repetitive - on the same station I'll often frequently hear the same songs after a while with little new being added.

Lord of the Rings - all three were terrific but yeah, the third edges out the other two by a nose. Revenge of the Sith - at least for the 2nd Star Wars trilogy, this 3rd movie was the best of the bunch, but that's not saying much. Indianna Jones - I agree, The Last Crusade was the best of the bunch ...

It would have to be between the old Wolfenstein 3d and Doom. The former mostly because you'd open a door not knowing what was behind it and the scream of a particularly bad baddy would be the first sign he was there and you knew you had to act quick. Doom had stuff like that but also completely dark...

I think this sort of thing has been around for a while. Never been in to playing violin myself but I used to be in to synthesizers and at that time noticed that Yamaha made this sort of silent violin as well.

I've been in to Trip Hop quite a bit in the past - Massive Attack, Portishead mostly. I even had that Massive Attack singles box set where the box was made with thermal paint so it changed colors when heated like from the touch of your skin. Not many other trip hop groups have I liked more than one ...

Isn't "The Graduate" supposed to be an existential film? In high school our English teacher assigned us to read Camus' "The Stranger" which was certainly existential (and, IIRC, inspired The Cure song "Killing An Arab") and then we watched The Graduate during class and ...

Haven't seen them all but Finding Nemo and The Incredibles are pretty much head and shoulders above the others that I've seen.
