  1. “Once we got onto the soundstage, we saw … a whole bunch of really neat stuff that I am not allowed to talk about.”

    Well, David, I sure hope so. I’m really hopeful that the next ST movie can get the “franchise” off of life support…but I’m not going to get enthused over it until I see it and it proves itself. Too many disappointments up to now!

  2. That I Am Legend ending is so much better. It pulls together the themes touched on by the film much better. It was obvious that the director wussed out and that the weird Christian ending was tacked on with very little thought.

    I love the bit where he looks at the polaroids of all the people (and the vampires clearly are people… they’re just not human) that he has kidnapped, experimented on and killed.

    Also love the “You are not alone” bit because, of course, he never was. He just made himself alone.

    If that had appeared in theatres I would have been happy with it as a more upbeat spin on the themes of the original book.

  3. i09 has the original Gerrold entry that he apparently got some heated talk from Paramount. I can’t imagine anything more vaguely written, but apparently the studio had heart failure over it.

  4. Thank you for linking to me! I’d love to see a “re-imagining” of Buck Rogers.

  5. No problem, Lisa. An I see Col. Wilma Deering is the subject of Danger Gal Friday. With our Friday YouTube post, it looks like it’s Buck Rogers day around here. πŸ™‚
