What is the Best Summer Movie of the Year?

My vote goes to Prometheus, it was the most layered and thought provoking film I've seen this year. Dark Knight Rises was a disappointment, as was Spiderman.

The dystopic/survivalist aspect is something we've seen quite a bit of on television recently. In the sci-fi genre, we now have Speilberg's Falling Skies, a couple years back we had Jericho, a show...

Given the way the story unfolded, you're right. But it didn't have to unfold that way, it could have been written differently. I would have completely cut out Miranda Tate/Talia, since Bane...

Actually, the film is flawed in several respects, from the editing, to the illogical plot, and poorly stringed together story-telling, to the over-use of new secondary characters (John Blake, Talia,...

Alphas

I was just curious if anyone here was aware of this ScyFy show that debuted last year called "Alphas". It's a little bit like CSI meets Heroes meets The 4400. Anyway its produced by two DS9 veterans,...

Well, that's exactly what the beginning seasons of ENTERPRISE did, IMO. Which is why ENTERPRISE is my second favorite series after TNG. You could also argue that DS9 and VOY were also attempts to do...

I don't know what more radical cut you are envisioning horatio. The task is to not veer too far off from familiar territory that what you are doing is no longer recognizable as Trek. Personally, I...

The reason why the "golden era" of Trek is gone is because J.J. has taken a minimalist approach to doing Trek. Roddenberry's vision is gone, Trek is simply the property of Paramount. In this new...

Yeah, also looks like we're getting the origin story again based on the trailer. The Christ metaphor is a good one for a post-Patriotic Superman; making the Man of Steel the savior of the world...

You're right, Ras Al Ghul basically were believers in creative destruction. They were like a suicide cult, but terrorists also. So kind of like Aum Shinrikyo, or Al Queda. But since Gotham was...

I loved Catwoman in this, they should have cut out Talia. I think the character of Talia/Miranda Tate undercut the Wayne/Kyle romance, and the character of Bane as villain. I'm confused, wasn't...
