... is it over YET?

It was a good view on the HDTV, but I think more light saber fights were in order < /sarcasm>

What I found most troubling
by grimgraphix / April 21, 2006 2:10 PM PDT

was the fact that Lucas replaced the original actor who played Darth Vader at the end of episode VI (on DVD) with Christian Haydin. You know... the scene where Yoda, Obiwan and Darth are all ghosts smiling down on the ewok party?

Lucas rationalized during an interview that when Vader died his ghost would revert back to his good self... Didn't Vader become good when he renounced the dark side though?

I bought episode III on DVD when it came out but haven't been able to bring myself to watch it yet.

Lucas became such a sell out.:(

... ''get one free'' in a pre-viewed DVD sale months ago. It's been sitting on a shelf. Probably should have left it there (on the shelf), or better yet at the store! It's on the way to DVD trade-in.

Never cared for Star Wars...

partly because, as a fan of "real" Science Fiction I was disappointed that the money could not have been used to make a real Science Fiction film instead of a cliche ridden shoot 'em up. But that was naive youth thinking.

The first one has some charm and the second one (Empire Strikes Back)is watchable. After that a steady slide downhill. But, I've dutifully shelled out money to see all of them. They are part of the culture now. I have even become fond of the turgid, cornball John Williams score.

BTW my 12-year-old son considers Episode III one of the best films ever made!

The only thing I liked about this one ...

... was R2 and C3PO Wink Yoda was cute too. The "big lines" came off as pap, and it was just tooooooo long for the plot line (which is why I compared it to the second Matrix).

I enjoyed the first two (or Episodes IV and V as they are now called). All the rest have been mediocre at best. I think we have Episode I kicking around on the shelf somewhere, but skipped II.

Stay tuned.

... I think they should have gotten a new cast from the get-go. Somehow the slightly (to varying degrees) overweight, aging actors stuffed into those space suits still doing the same duties just never quite cut it for me. Once they switched to the Next Generation cast, it was better IMO, but they kinda already lost me.

I did see Nemesis, but couldn't tell you what it was about. That's how memorable it was Wink I just checked the Star Trek site, and surprised myself that I *think* I've actually seen them all at one time or another. We have a few on VHS, that have even seen some wear (mostly the hubby watches that stuff when I'm not around).

Katherine wants them to make one based on the

"New Frontiers" novels, which she likes a lot (I tink they're ok, but not great).

So this one at least has a chance of being good.

isn't it said that only the even numbered star trek movies have been good? Doesn't that mean they should skip 11 and move right to 12?

I have heard that Patrick Stewart feels he will be too old (born 13 july,1940) to be in anymore Star trek movies if the don't start on in the next year.

He is younger than Bill Shatner (22 march, 1931) but Bill cut out the strenuous roles a while back. Last time James T Kirk was on the screen was in 1994's Generations (really that long ago?) which would have made him 61 or 62 when he shot the movie.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
