I'm sure there'll be a whole creature featurette on the freaking DVD).

One suggestion I saw on another forum was that they include bonus material in the form of news material about the attack. There was certainly plenty of it in the movie, but it would be nice to be able to watch it without Hud waving the camera around at most of the good bits. I would be happy with that.

"I just want to graduate from high school, go to Europe, marry Charlie Sheen and die. It may not sound too exciting to a sconehead like you, but I think it's swell."

I'm thinking Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie).

I'll wait for confirmation before I post a challange.

See, now, that's just stupid. Way to ruin a great experience with the Allmighty Money Grab. Asshats.

I'm not so sure. The monster toy isn't being released until September. By then the movie will be fast approaching DVD release. Still, I can't see much point in releasing the monster without also releasing some New York-style buildings for it to destory Wink

For those who haven't checked their TV Guides - Chuck is returning for its two remaining episodes this week. Canada has already had the two episodes aired, and they're pretty good. The episodes will be airing back to back Thursday evening (IIRC) in the States.

I'll be getting onto SoA this weekend (which starts 24 hours from now for me). Work got surprisingly busy this week - let's just say that three hours conference calls are not as fun as they sound Sad

Didn't we have that as "Firefly"... and look how well the network received that one.

The thing with Firefly is you have to take the Fox factor into consideration. On another network the show might have lasted well into a second season. On Sci-Fi it could have been NuBSG before there was NuBSG.

Ahh, the possibilities.

Jim, Jimi and Janis were all 28? Aw man, considering I'm turning that age a little later this year I'm suddenly feeling a little bit worried.

Then again, I'm not a celebrity, so perhaps I'll be spared...

In semi-related news, Brad Renfo died a couple of weeks ago too. He was only 25.

I just read an interview with Exec Producer Roberto Orci. They talked about the teaser trailer and why they had decided to show the ship being built on Earth instead of in space, which gave Roberto to prove he is one heck of a geek - kinda Grin

Sorry to be an unfeeling bastard, but who cares?

Yes, there are atrocities happening in the world far worse than this every day, right now even. For me, though, I have a more personal link to Heath's death.

You see, my father died when I was 21. He had just turned 49. I have two younger brothers, the youngest of whom was 15 at the time. For us, this was the biggest tragedy in the world. Likewise, Heath's death is now the biggest tragedy in the world for Michelle and their two children. I can empathise with them, and feel deeply moved and sorry for their loss.

Drug overdose or not, a man who has entertained us with his talents is gone - well before his time.

I get the feeling they'll go ahead with him in the movie anyway, just like with Raul Julia in Street Fighter. What better tribute than a terrific turn as one of the most iconic super villains to help people remember his talent.

Looks like a possible drug overdose. Bugger.

Winona may just yet make a comeback. She was pretty good in A Scanner Darkly and will hopefully be good in The Ten. I just hope that her role in Star Trek is relatively small, just in case.

Is it just me or did anyone get the feeling of Spock telling a story to some young kids, aka first year cadets or something.

I loved the trailer, it was just the right amount of old and new mixed together.

I know I'll be watching this one on the day it comes out here. As soon as my gf found out that Zach Quinto was playing Spock it was pretty much guaranteed Cheesy

I believe that's the first time I ever seen a woman as a honor guard (and there was three).

That's the NZ military for you. We were one of the first countries to give women the vote, and things have just snowballed (in a good way, of course) from there.

(There are indeed three servicewomen in that photo, the minister on duty at the time was also female.)
