  1. I believe that I have finally achieved Kolinahr after this thought of total logic dawned on me - which is that Star Trek is the greatest franchise of all time. Think about it, it has the best music, the best acting ensemble, the best stories, the best characters, the most memorable dialogue and there's a wide variety of content that spans almost 50 years. And most importantly, Star Trek is the benchmark by which all others are measured. And these have all failed the test. The Tolkiens, the Nolans, the Game of Throneses, the Marvels, the Potters, even the Star Warses... they're nothing compared to the unparalleled magnificence of Roddenberry's mythic wagon train to the stars.

    I think about this sometimes regarding movies that were shot and mastered digitally and whether there'll be comparability problems in access and playback in 70 years from now.

  12. How would you rate "Black Sunday"?

    Stab Takes a lot of liberties from the Gale Weathers book about the Woodsboro murders, but even that tabloidy thing was conjecture. Heather Graham's butt was the highlight, she's come a long way from Twin Peaks. But Tori Spelling was awful as usual.

    Slap a THX sticker on it and it'll seem high quality.

    Doctor won't prescribe any, because my MRI results are fine. Instead I seek it out through alternative routes.

    Morning Glory Complete coincidence that I watch this a week after I saw Broadcast News. This one is just about as good, and funny as hell! I bet Harrison Ford's grouchy and intimidating persona portrayed here is about close to what he's like in real life - no acting needed!
  23. It's so weird, I only got to see the TLJ this week, and after reading all the backlash it received, some very ferocious and passionate polarising reception, I was prepared for an unmitigated disaster. But then I watched it... and it wasn't really that bad. Sure it wasn't a masterpiece either. It's just a space opera movie for kids afterall. I recognise its flaws and weaknesses, sure, but fans seem to have amplified those flaws and weaknesses into reasons to blast the whole film away. As if it has absolutely no merit whatsoever. I've noticed among online film goers in the last few years that their assessment of films has been simplified to binary reception - it was either a masterpiece or a terrible disaster. They give it either a 10/10 or a 0/10. There's no nuance anymore. If it didn't meet their expectations, it's a complete write-off and must be publicly lynched and shamed forever. The advent of social media perhaps plays a role in this, where any uneducated hick now has a platform to promote their views. Back in the day, it was only certified writers who had the privilege of wider media influence. How times have changed. And how is this sustainable? Hollywood could definitely stand to improve its output a great deal, but once I get around to seeing these newer films, they're not necessarily great, most are mediocre, but definitely not as stinking awful as the fanatics claim. Maybe mediocrity makes them angry? I'd love to see what a really bad movie does to them...
  24. How much time does JWFan have?
