  • 00:16 @fagfanroy I saw the first HP in the theatre the day it came out and thought that the art direction/casting was wonderful... #
  • 00:17 @fagfanroy but I thought that Chris Columbus sucked all the life out of the series. He made it as bland/boring as possible. #
  • 00:18 @fagfanroy the second two movies I watched in second run when we had them at our theatre (for free). I wasn't any more impressed. #
  • 00:18 @fagfanroy I've not seen either of the other two and don't plan to see this summer's or the next two (the last book). #
  • 00:20 @fagfanroy Hallowe'en 2007 we had an all Harry Potter themed costume. I went as Frank Longbottom (Neville's father). #
  • 00:20 @fagfanroy all of our friends (who had read the books) thought that was cool (I came in a hospital gown and "crazy" make-up...). #
  • 00:21 @fagfanroy the next door neighbors who'd only seen the movies didn't know who I was and barely knew who NEVILLE was. #
  • 00:22 @fagfanroy that's the kind of thing I'm talking about with these movies to book adaptations...though a lot of m-t-b-as really suck. #
  • 00:22 Best book to movie adaptation I've seen: Stephen King's The Stand. Worst book to movie adaptation I've seen: Witches of Eastwick. #
  • 00:29 Saawariya - Netflix Instant Watch Bollywood film - a modern fable, similar art direction to Moulin Rouge. #
  • 00:31 @rickybrigante now meanwhile, on the flipside, the Terminator that I've enjoyed the most has to be T-3D at Universal Studios. Neat show! #
  • 00:36 @fortheinsane I really loved the novella, but I'm very much in the minority of not much enjoying the movie. #
  • 00:38 RT @attractions Video and Pictures of Toy Story Mania for Nintendo Wii #
  • 00:43 @tastybakingco but the BEST Tastycake pie has to be the cherry...or the lemon...or the apple...or the blueberry...all good. Hard to choose. #
  • 00:46 @splatnuk don't forget indy chick flicks: My Big Fat Greek Zombie! #
  • 00:59 what the hell did I post? I just got hit with 7 twitter porn-spam followers (all "female"). #
  • 08:41 @thatkevinsmith love you, love @jaymewes and even love @perezhilton but I gave up on @degrassi_ctv a couple of years ago. #
  • 09:46 @dirtygert @controladdict we always keep a minimum of three Match Games on our Tivo at any given time... #
  • 09:47 Check this video out -- Girls on Film Freak Out (Duran Duran vs. Chic) #
  • 10:35 RT @cayers131 There's a world of difference between "self-deprecating" and "self-defecating"...confuse the two at your peril. #fb #
  • 16:31 just got home from ignoring my better judgement and going to see Star Trek anyway. #
  • 16:32 was a great movie. It's a pity it wasn't a great STAR TREK movie. #
  • 16:33 had it's good points: Karl Urban as McCoy, Z. Quinto as Spock, Sulu's improved screen time... #
  • 16:34 ...and Uhura's first name, long in print in the novels and comics has finally been uttered on screen to become "canon (?)" #
  • 16:35 If you are a casual fan or are not concerned with continuity/canon you will enjoy it. If you're a continuity freak stay away. #
  • 16:36 bad points: CHEKOV. His accent was worse than it was in the original series and he was WAY too young. Pavel does not equal Wesley. #
  • 16:38 While I remember, could someone PLEASE tell me that Winona Ryder was wearing age make-up...? #
  • 16:48 The other BIG bad point in my opinion was the blatant product placement...that has NO place in a Star Trek film. #
  • 16:55 @mssres Yes. @sungenis also said "Bud" was a product placement, but I could at least believe that becoming slang for N. American beer. #
  • 16:57 But don't get me wrong. Much bigger childhood memories character rapes witnessed today were seen in the Land of the Lost trailer... #
  • 17:08 and Pike was way too friggin' old by a decade. Jeffrey Hunter was 40 when he played Pike. This guy was 53 (and looked even older)! #
  • 17:09 Pike should have been more virile... #
  • 17:10 @mssres Kirk ordered Bud in the bar while hitting on Uhura. #
  • 17:12 @rickybrigante I was into Star Trek. I'll probably still follow the comics, I might get some novels here and there...but these movies... #
  • 17:13 @rickybrigante ...I'll probably not being seeing more of these movies... #
  • 17:14 @cnreilly do you have ANY idea when the official DVD of the documentary will be released? #
  • 17:22 @dirtygert especially since @cnreilly died two years ago...eerie. #
  • 17:27 on the plus side: the UA in Washington Township, NJ NOT a ghetto theatre. No crying babies/conversations/cellphones/texting. Nice change. #
  • 18:44 RT @michaelianblack Can't vouch for quality (of download or album itself,) but The State's 1995 unreleased album: #
  • 19:14 RT @sungenis Here we go. "STAR TREK: Why It Sucks (Part One)" #fb #
  • 19:29 @touraj don't bow to the tweer-pressure. What my husband, @sungenis, had to say about it: #
  • 20:36 @fagfanroy I caved into YOUR peer pressure and you see how well that worked. ;O #
  • 20:38 for the record, this isn't the first Star Trek movie that left me feeling this way. "Generations" had me screaming upon exit of theatre... #
  • 20:39 so you're telling me that when Kirk is given his ultimate "Heaven" and he's all domestic on a farm or whatever, he's with a random bimbo? #
  • 20:40 He's NOT with Carol Marcus or Janice Rand or even, oh, I don't know, EDITH KEELER maybe? You know that Joan would have done that cameo! #
  • 20:41 ...and the less said about that piece of shit that was "Final Frontier" (even Gene Roddenberry excommunicated it out of canon for chrissakes #
  • 20:42 of course, like it/love it/hate it/don't want to see it/seeing it twenty times/whatever. It's a fucking movie people. Get over yourselves. #
  • 20:43 @fagfanroy no I wanted to LOVE it. But, I told you my misgivings about going and you kept pushing. #
  • 20:53 @fagfanroy did you even read the article? @sungenis brought up valid points. You can't just willy-nilly make changes... #
  • 20:54 @fagfanroy a good story still requires respect for it's own science/universe and how things work in it (as have already been established) #
  • 20:54 @fagfanroy just because the Romulan was mucking with time doesn't mean that he's changed the fundamentals of how time travel works in ST. #
  • 20:56 @fagfanroy seriously, calm down. the problem Paul had wasn't the changes AFTER the Romulan arrived, but BEFORE. It doesn't work like that. #
  • 20:59 @fagfanroy Why/how does MY negative review of a movie (and frankly, it wasn't AS negative as you believe) affect how YOU enjoyed the movie? #
  • 21:00 @fagfanroy after the many years of the DC Multiverse, Marvel's What If's, Star Trek's own Mirror Mirror, Back to the Future and more... #
  • 21:01 @fagfanroy you better believe I more than most people understand alternate universes/retroactive continuity (just ask about Donna Troy)... #
  • 21:03 @fagfanroy I realize J.J. Abrams has his own version of time travel in Lost, which I've tried to watch when it first started and didn't like #
  • 21:04 @fagfanroy but the internal science should still be consistent with what has come before (at least BEFORE Nero shows up). #
  • 21:05 @fagfanroy since Nero's arrival is the divergence point (just as Marty destroying the tree is his initial divergence :Twin/One Pine Mall). #
  • 21:06 @fagfanroy yes, but again what does that have to do with YOUR enjoyment of the film? #
  • 21:08 @bfirrera saying "if you don't want to, then don't" isn't saying "GO (or don't) 'cause your opinion affects my opinion" #
  • 21:08 @polomex I have no problem and I'm just trying to say to roy that he can enjoy and I can not enjoy it (though I DID, which is why... #
  • 21:09 @polomex ...I don't entirely understand why he's fighting with me. All movies have good/bad points. This one had both. #
  • 21:10 @polomex in fact, I could even ignore the stuff my husband brought up. I loved Zach as Spock, and McCoy rocked. #
  • 21:12 @fagfanroy I'm just stating what my opinion was. I still don't see how MY opinion affects YOURS. #
  • 21:12 @fagfanroy there are plenty of movies that I love that many of people hate or don't get and it doesn't take away from my loving the movie #
  • 21:13 @fagfanroy to read a negative review (and again...mine wasn't a negative review...). #
  • 21:17 @fagfanroy Fine...expect a lot of movie reviews about foreign/indy/documentaries/bollywood...cause that's what I like. #
  • 21:18 @fagfanroy and please...I won't go see another movie this summer 'cept the Tarantino and Up, 'cause they're all I want to see... #
  • 21:19 @fagfanroy don't go out of your way to badger me into seeing any of them...okay? That's all you did yesterday. We wouldn't be fighting now #
  • 21:24 @fagfanroy wait...'cause if you include side conversations with others that's not fair... #
  • 21:25 @fagfanroy and I count four big pos and three small negs (plus one neg for Land of the lost)... #
  • 21:27 @fagfanroy fuck you and the horse you rode in on. #
  • 21:30 for the record, @jeffthemidget at least on my side, this conversation is done. #
  • 22:34 @lucindalunacy drunk twittering is worse 'cause you don't have to worry about spell check when you drunk dial... #
  • 22:37 @splatnuk I think the romance angle certainly makes Shawn of the Dead a viable chick flick with zombies. #
  • 22:49 @ranggrol has Wanda's performance from #nerdprom been posted anywhere to watch it? #
  • 23:01 @ranggrol cool thank you. #
  • 23:02 @greggrunberg funny, I was waiting for you to be hidden in strange alien make-up. #
