    Christopher Paul Curtis is from Detroit and so are several of his characters, but he writes them saying "Y'all." I guess we don't have the monopoly on that word down here. :p

    @CT-867-5309 The ice shields are fully operational.

    August. Still waiting on my brother's work to officially approve his time off, but he was told to go make his plans so we ironed out most of the details this week. Words cannot describe how excited I am to go. To set foot upon the land, to breathe the air of the dead sea... so excited to see Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

    I don't think anyone in that was Irish, but yes, the accents were very strong sometimes... especially among Brad Pitt's character and the other gypsies ("pikeys").

    Eh, been a while since I seen it. I though Pitt et al were Irish travelers, which are similar to gypsies. So I was close.

    I've been on the forums for a while, postings lots, but never actually posting in this thread...

    I just saw you guys talking about not being able to understand british accents? Err, well i'm british and I find it difficult to understand some american accents! It goes both ways! Though there are some British accents I can't understand that well either and I've lived in the UK all my life! It's very difficult when in the job I'm training to to, I get people who come in and I can't understand them and I feel bad because I should!

    And in Canada I can understand everybody,but apparently nobody can understand us. I've got a good ear for accents.

    Loving the newest Star Trek: Into Darkness trailer. I know Abrams has been reported to not be a very big fan of the Star Trek franchise, yet I think he did good work in the 2009 film and I am very much looking forward to this one.



    I'm feeling optimistic of what he'll do with Episode 7 - something he has greater passion for.

    John Cho was in the first film as well. He's Sulu.

    Guys, I have to be honest here. I love JarJar Binks. He gives great comic relief to the prequels.

    Prequel Forum is that way. Here, Binks ranges from tolerable to abysmal. The only thing worse than Ahmed Best is a man doing a bad Ahmed Best impersonation.

    That trailer reminded me that JJ is doing Episode 7. I almost forgot that. :p

    Still, the new Star Trek looks pretty good. I like Cumberbatch, especially as Sherlock Holmes, so it'll be cool to see him play the bad guy for a change.

    I haven't seen Cumberbatch's Sherlock. How does it compare to Robert Downey's version?
    Edit: Just realized that both Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are in Sherlock and The Hobbit. Interesting.

    Dude I don't think you know how amazing JarJar really is. His character development might be the best of any Star Wars movie. Sometimes you need a good comedic break from all the tension.

    It's certainly different. Never mind the fact that it's present day, but his Sherlock is even more socially disinclined than Downey's, since he has an extreme superiority complex, at least in terms of intelligence. He's also got a slightly different dynamic with Watson. I like both for different reasons.

    And yeah, a lot of Sherlock fans can't wait for Bilbo's confrontation with Smaug.

    Wow, what a great trailer. I never seriously watched ST before the Abrams reboot, and since I watched some of the shows and Wrath of Khan. So yeah, I'm excited for this film. Perhaps the ST won't suck completely.

    Cumberpatch as one of their top agents? I wonder if they will pull out Section 31 for this film. That would be a great tie in to the Prime universe.

    Keep talking about Jar Jar and it might be you who is in for a comedic break. ;)
