    May 8, 2012 2:53 am ...not to mention Men in Black 3 (Comic book movie, too)
    May 6, 2012 1:40 pm For the sequel... I'm thinking Kree-Skrull War with Thanos at the helm? Did anyone else get a Ronin the Accuser vibe from "The Other"?
    May 6, 2012 1:38 pm This is where I lost it - "that's where we're spending all that money!" "No wonder we need an unlimited energy source!" It was even better with all of the Quinkets (I'm assuming those were Quinjets) Thor, Hulk, and finally Nick Fury plow throughout the movie. All that money, down the drain...
    May 6, 2012 1:35 pm Did you notice how the battle stayed within a 4 block radius around Stark tower? You have Cap to thank for that. Thor kept the portal guarded, Hawkeye kept them from spreading too far, Black Widow, Hulk, and Iron Man provided crowd control.
    May 6, 2012 1:33 pm I didn't find it so subtle, quite annoyingly obvious actually. It will be Stark's inspiration for a logo as he ties them all together with ID cards and the like.
    May 6, 2012 1:32 pm My first thought as the Helicarrier launched - no wonder they need an unlimited power source.

    It wasn't my pick, but I agree with everything said here.  Pyg was a bit too disturbing for me, but I'm interested to see where it was going.

     Damian Wayne is about the same age as young Bruce was.  And Damian needs Dick to show him the way.  That's what I think is going on here.

    The recent Creative Screenwriting Magazine podcast for "Star Trek" with Kurtzman and Orci show that they actually wanted a closer relationship with Spock and Nero in original drafts.  The mind meld was written and rewritten several times.

     Still, I read this (it's also $4 on the iPhone from iverse media - $1 each), and while I thought Nero's knowledge of Starfleet history was way too convenient, it did helped.

     As for the structure of the Star Trek movie, I would have preferred not witnessing the mind meld at all.  JJ Abrams has a great talk about the "Mystery Box" (which really plays well in Lost), and that could have been this movie's "mystery box".  If suddenly Kirk was armed with the knowledge to deal with Nero, it wouldn't be too questioned.  Everyone would be asking, even in the end, who Nero was.  They just need to buy these comics to find out.

     For Trekkies finding the movie troubling, I highly recommend it.

    May 19, 2009 4:00 pm I love Celtx, and I also own Final Draft.  I wish Celtx had more compatibility options, but if you use CutePDF you could print out PDFs regularly.  Celtx has some great index card options (as does Final Draft), and great for being free.
