    Every Film You've Watched in 2018

    Uncle Buck is truly an overlooked John Hughes gem. For me, it's his top film.

    Is that on Netflix?
  3. Since we already have independent threads for Star Trek: Discovery and the modern Star Trek movies, I thought we could use this thread to cover everything else that precedes the 2009 reboot.

    Random Star Trek thoughts

    For me, Jadzia only shined when she was hanging around Klingons or chumming it up with Sisko, Kira, or Quark. She took ages to grow, and, sadly, her growth hinged on that of the male characters around her: Dr. Bashir matures and stops trying to win her over, so Dax is able to become a character beyond the jewel of Julian's eye. Sisko comes into his own as a leader, so Dax becomes his conscious. Warf shows his heart, Jadzia gets a husband. Another issue with her character is the Jadzia-centric stories were either about her hanging out with Klingons or something to do with the Dax symbiont and / or being a Trill. Unless I'm mistaken, I don't remember her having any other story types, and that's a shame because Terry Farrell is a decent actress who deserved better.

    Great! I hope they keep her Jewish, though.

    Calling it now: she'll be Christian and straight.

    Suggestions of shows we could cover.

    Knight Rider (2008) had a TV movie, then one 17-episode season.

    That's where I found it, too. Quark's character growth is amazing.

    Understandable. That's a great place to breathe, as it wraps up a great three-plus-season character arc for Picard.

    Avengers: Infinity War

    Recently I saw a video noting the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 will have to spoil Avengers 4 to some extent, as the movies will be released two months apart. (Avengers then Spider-Man.) That means their marketing campaigns will also overlap. Marvel and Sony are probably have some serious conversations -- with lots of money being thrown around -- to decide how these two movies will be advertised without one ruining parts of the other. EDIT The video in question:

    Marvel Comics Discussion Thread

    What's funny is, as I was reading the opening of your post, I was thinking, Oh yeah! That was when his armor came to life and tried to kill him. Not sure how or why I remembered that. If I recall, I only read two or three issues of that Iron Man run. Your suggestion would be an interesting practice, especially with older collections. It's strange to think, but comic book writing has changed so much in the last 20 years. Even in 1998 we weren't in the practice of writing-for-the-trade, so some of those older collections are going to be confusing without a little backstory.

    The Predator

    Yeah, I saw that and I went "Oh come on!" Also, a Shane Black movie not set around Christmas. This one looks to be Halloween themed.

    Not a fan of the first one?

    Stop. I shouldn't have worded it the way I did, but I did. And now it's over. And per your question, Will, we can drop spoiler tags now.

    The Predator

    It's a sequel. Jake Busey is playing the son of Peter Keyes (Gary Busey) from Predator 2.

    The Predator

    Not sure about it just yet, but it is a teaser. So we'll see. Though I will say this: after his awesomely smarmy turn as Pierce in Logan, I might find it hard to see Boyd Holbrook as a protagonist.

    Arrested Development

    I've been watching reruns on G4, and, man, this show rocks! The network is going to run the entire first season on Christmas Day... thank goodness for the ol' DVR!
