  • Welcome to the Nerdrotic Nooner (it's noon somewhere) today I will discuss what I think of the Viacom/CBS merger and the future of our once beloved franchise. I hope it will be okay, you hope it will be okay, CBS/Viacom hopes it will be okay, but hope is not a strategy.

    They just remake old movies now. Its like there is no imagination anymore. I stopped watching Star Trek a long time ago. Ive never seen Discovery. And wont. Its just remake cartoons, revamp old movies or tv shows. Thats why i loved GOT, (my mistake, didnt know the writers were garbage after they had no source material). I miss when companies cared about putting out good product! Btw...love your channel!!

    Gary word of warning. Wheel of Time gets to be a tough read after the 4rd or 5th books till the last 2 books. There gets to be way too many characters and plot lines resulting in books that make War and Peace look like a novella. I love the Wheel of Time but I can recky its faults. Brain Sanderson fixes some issues in the last couple books after Robert Jordan's death. Jordan's last couple of books in the series are not great as very little happens plot wise because of the bloat. If you do keep at it, read them through and like Brain Sanderson's writing checkout his series The Stormlight Archive. It's very good.
    As to the Female centric issues some people have in the books it's there but its because some of the kingdoms/countries in the books are actual Matriarchies It's not "wok". Frankly I Like some of the female characters cause I love too hate them. lol I think their setup to be nosey assholes whos "good intentions" are supposed to get in the lead 3 male characters ways. Also people in the books learn lessons and their beliefs and points of views due chg due to their exp so some characters turn from people you'll loath to heros in the books.
    There's also Manly men, Men who are great fathers and husbands and Men who have multiple wives in the books so it all washes out. It is not like the wok bullshit everyone complains about.

    My problem with the Hobbit was it was just too long. The Hobbits not the best book and then they added filler to make a trilogy. If they had done it as one movie and stayed more towards the basic story it would have been much better.

    When the re-released the Starwars films with new effects I remember everyone going crazy for it. I know people shit on them now because of some scenes but my brothers and I still love them. The new effects for the Space Scenes in A new Hope were great IMO. This Was also the first time I went to see movies more than once in a theater. I am old enough to have seen the original Empire and Return of the Jedi in theaters but they did not have the hype like they did in the re-releases. At the re-releases was the first time I saw people cosplay to watch a movie too.

    its weird how many of the young actors can only play one role, the role they got in the first movie/series they played.

    Looking at the trailer of the Picard series, it was so sad to see him say 'Engage' while clearly standing in front of a green screen . It just looked so cheap .
    Official Trek just fell to the lower tier fan production status, and I had so see 'him' there .
    It was such a low blow .

    WTF? "Star Wars was not popular throughout the 80s"? Rarely have I heard you make such an ignorant comment, Gary. Are you back on the drugs? The 80s was a HUGE decade for Star Wars. The Empire Strikes Back was released in 1980 to massive critical and box office success and was followed by releases of the soundtrack on CD in 1985, the novelisation was in the shops, there was a comic book adaptation (in multiple formats e.g. pocket book size); there was a book and record set (33 1/3 rpm), there were video games across multiple platforms (the Atari ST version was especially prominent) and there was even a serialised adaptation which was broadcast on the radio. This was in conjuction with the same merchandising express train that went with A New Hope from 1977 onwards (and this was itself still selling throughout the 80s) e.g. posters, lunch boxes, t-shirts, bedspreads and curtains, etc. Then in 1983 Return of the Jedi hit the cinemas to set a new highest grossing film box office record with ALL the same merchandising releases that came before with Empire. The title change from Revenge of the Jedi also created its own merchandising niche market. Bear in mind too that both these films were successful at the Academy Awards, sweeping all the technical/SFX Oscars. Additionally there were 'making of' documentaries and books (some of which I own) and subsidiary products such as the Industrial Light and Magic book release. ILM was (and still is) the leading special effects company in the world and produced ground-breaking SFX during the 80s in films such as Young Sherlock Holmes and the Pyramid of Fear (1985, the first ever computer-generated character), WIllow (1988, first morphing sequence of a human into an animal), and the first emoting CGI character (1989, The Abyss); since ILM was owned by Lucasfilm and did all the SFX in the Star Wars films any success by ILM helped to keep Star Wars on the radar. Also, Lucas has never been slow to exploit the anniversary years, the first big one coming in 1987.

    Given that it was more than two decades before Lucas would make the prequels, the gigantic cultural impact that Star Wars had (the momentum of which encouraged Lucas to make more films) was generated from the 80s!


    Edit: Oh yes, I didn't even mention the toys and models or the Star Wars spinoffs such as the Meco pop versions of the Star Wars music.
    You say "I was there" (in the 80s) as if this somehow certifies your opinion. Well, so was I, pal; and Star Wars mania originated in '77 and burgeoned in the 80s. Basic research (not to mention basic logic) indicates that Star Wars' unprecented cultural impact began in the decade when most of its films were released.

    Ocean's 11 cast in Star Trek would be woke as hell.
    I love the original mummy I re- watch it all the time and I even love the second one because I watched it as a kid. The third movie was really bad and the last one w/ Tom Cruise I prefer to forget about.

    Tom cruise is still the man

    14:05 In the Netherlands and Belgium we get BBC, and through BBC we used to get star Trek. And it's popular in geek and nerd culture here just like it is in the US. But just as in the us star Trek lost a lot of long time fans through the reboots and now the STD dumpster fire.

    Would star trek be better if it went away for a little snooze (say 3 years) and they let the turd that is DUHcovery filter through the fans minds and we came back with old school Trek ?
    (I know it's not going to happen but a fan can dream can't he ?)

    Maybe it's just me, but I thought the main star wars series was shit... Now the thing about star wars that worked, was the expanded universe. The universe was the key, star wars games.. how many was just luke running around? Best star wars game was KOTOR which took place so far before the movies there's no point connecting the two

    Oddly STD is set around the same time as Data was being made, yet it looks like they could build him in 2 seconds flat... especially if mikey spock was on the job...

    I loved the Mummy film I have watched it three times and bought the DVD so different tastes I suppose as I also enjoyed and bought the new Star Trek movies.
