    Disney+ THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER (Marvel Cinematic Universe)

    He's not a General, he's a Senator. The same guy who introduced the new Cap, and took the title away from Walker in this episode. He doesn't have a name, but when the closed captions are on and he speaks off screen, he's simply named "SENATOR:"

    :rock: I just wish the looped timing was better coming from Marvel.

    No comments on Zemo's dancing? That sure lit the rest of the internet on fire... :)

    Disney+ Marvel's WandaVision

    And having just read this...on the internet... well... 😁

    Disney+ Marvel's WandaVision

    I loved it all. My only complaints - Darcy needed to have a bigger part in the end. More the one thing she did. Agatha seemed a bit too one dimensional at the end. I hoped there was more for her after the battle. The only bright side is that hopefully she will be consulted by Wanda at a later...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    But, I would think that the CBS AA app itself will have an update with the new Paramount + app icon.

    Fantastic Beasts 3 (2022)

    I don't know... give Mads the same bleached out haircut, and the same eye contacts (or digital "enhancement" as the case may be) and I think he would have a similar enough look to Depp's look in these movies to pull it off. Mads' voice is a bit more distinctive, though.

    The War of the Worlds – Criterion Blu-ray Review

    And, CinemaScope was going to be a licensed product from Fox at the time. Paramount was not about to pay Fox to use it, going for their own VistaVision instead - which didn't premiere until '54 with "White Christmas".

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    I agree, and I too like the sequel films - especially TLJ and TROS. TFA is just a bit more re-watchable though.

    They’re Still Not Making Laser Discs Are They?

    Agreed. Plus, you said "a simple adapter" and that's not. Any converter that requires power - and that device does - is beyond being a simple adapter.

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

    That was mentioned a lot for years. In fact, that complaint was lodged at all three leads at some point or another. For Shatner's part, I always saw it as how Kirk was at that time. Remember Decker's own assessment of Kirk early on... "Sir, you haven't logged a single star hour in two and a...

    They’re Still Not Making Laser Discs Are They?

    Colored vinyl, like this from 1984? Guess that player would have fits trying to read this disc...:)

    They’re Still Not Making Laser Discs Are They?

    Wow - a 3-movie set on Laserdisc for only 60 bucks. Wish my Star Wars Definitive Edition box set was that cheap. ;)

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)

    Besides the extra "VIEWER OFF!" and the "oh my God" - both from Kirk, the only other noticeable trim was while going through the cloud. There is a cut that can be heard in the music too. After years of listening to the soundtrack, I notice a jump in the music at one point in the DE. I forget...

    Noah Hawley takes on the next Star Trek movie

    I agree that Paramount seemed lost in what to do. The fact that there were 3 different plans for a Trek movie at the same time proves that lack of vision and a lot of potential waste. However, it seems that what Emma Watts is doing is possibly trying to find that vision - or, at least a focus...
