    Top it all off, they have Troi crash the Enterprise. And have her do it again in Nemesis! No that's not perpetuating stereotypes about women drivers at all! :mad:

    To be fair everyone knows that Troi is a complete screw up so the real question is why did anyone give her any control over the ship. Seriously, Whoopi Goldberg's Guinan would have been a better choice to take charge.

    Anything with Dennis Hopper is worth watching at least 247 times.

    You were actually expecting something better than the PoS that the film was? Lol

    Picard didn't die :p




    But in all seriousness, I heard the other option was having him shot in the back. That seems a rather lame death for Kirk, the bridge thing was at least more heroic.

    To be clear, I'm not trying to say that the Dark Knight is a terrible movie. It is quite an enjoyable one, and certainly better than most films of that genre. But it has a number of obvious flaws. And I don't think, in light of those, that one can call it the best of the modern entries.

    Yeah, but Spiderman 2 has two larger flaws then anything found in TDK called Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. Through, to be fair it did have a Bruce Campbell cameo which is makes anything 10x better.

    I'm pretty sure that was Spider-Man 3, although the Dunce was unfortunately in all of them.

    Oops, I meant Tobey Maguire. Sorry, his performance was so forgettable that I actually forgot who played Peter Parker for the three films.

    Yes; by making Spiderman ejaculate webbing out of his wrists instead of constructed devices you could then shoehorn an infantile impotency subplot into the film, which creates the impression of depth in the same way putting a bandaid on a wound gives the impression of surgery.

    I enjoyed the film, don't get me wrong, but your hagiographic praise of it is completely misplaced.

    And Bruce Campbell was the theatre door-man in Spiderman 2, the matire'd in Spiderman 3 and of course, the host of the wrestling in Spiderman.

    Yep, and in every case he was the best part of the movies along with J.K Simmons.

    I heard something about that actually being filmed (Kirk being shot in the back), but I've never come across it.

    I saw it on Youtube, but I don't know if it's still up there.

    Kirk: "I think I could get used to the 24th Century."

    I didn't think it would've been a good movie to begin with but The Green Hornet is one of the worst pieces of monkey crap to ever be made...

    Its so bad that Christop Waltz is actually horrible in it, his dialogue is so hideous its actually funny... The people behind this film should be black balled from Hollywood as if they were Commies during the 50's.

    I don't think there was any "impotency subplot" or sexual connotation generally. It doesn't lead anywhere. The only things it would symbolize are the things that literally happened in the film to suggest said metaphor in the first place.

    What it does do, by making his powers unreliable, is add to the instability of Spiderman's identity. This works well with dozens of other points in the movie, including his existential angst, Molina and Osborne's confused prioritization, the failed rescue attempts, and Aunt May coming to terms with her (lack of) financial security. That's not laughable. It's a consistent, thorough examination of a single theme in a movie. Yes, it's a simple, well-worn point to make. Yes, it is exemplified through incredibly simplistic, easily comprehended set pieces.

    But this a comic book movie. It's about idiots in costumes running around punching each other. What they accomplished blows everything else in the genre out of the water. On this score, none of the Batman films are even worth discussing alongside it.

    Spider Man 2 is to date one of the best comic book movies that has been made...

    And the fact that spider man doesn't naturally make his own webbing is one of the all time greatest blunders in comic book history...

    There is not a smidgen of logic behind it.. Lets be honest here, what are spiders best known for??? Their webs, its what sets them apart from other boring insects. Its the most recognizable thing spiders do, is spin a web...

    Its almost on the level of stupidity of someone gaining the powers of birds but not being able to fly on their own will.. Its what birds are known for, flying...

    I always assumed that he did make his own webbing. I didn't know that that was a departure from the comic book. It just made sense to me.

    Right, but if we take Lando's "logic" to it's conclusion, he should be shooting web out of his anus.

    even in the comic book e doesn't make his own webbing...

    I could've sworn years ago I read a Stan Lee article that stated Peter didn't make his own webs when he was created because he might be to scary to children...

    But like I said its probably the biggest blunder in comics history that Peter doesn't make his own webs naturally... Its the most distinctive feature a Spider is known for, this goes back to my bird example up top.
