Re: Harry Potter and the Prime Minister's Plan.

Arthur Weasley spots the Granger family heading to Gringotts in the second book to exchange muggle currency for the magical equivalent. The film changes the lines to being a discussion about them being dentists.

How sympathetic should a horror movie's cast be?

In horror movies, there is the main cast, as well as the ancillary characters, and of course, the thing killing them off, whether it be a serial killer, a monster, ghost, etc. The question is, how much should we know the characters? How much should we like them? It would seem like a cruel joke if pe...

None of this really looks appealing to me, unless we could use the floaters off Risa, or the ship was a Risian ship, like previous years. Ah well, I'll probably be doing it anyway.

Is Dany really becoming a mad Queen? Tyrion talking to her and getting her to see reason was sort of a recurring thing for last season. She has a big picture in her mind, and Tyrion is good at moving things into place (as long as he has a power base). Worst we've seen her do is crucify slavers who c...

Does Barclay belong in Starfleet?

However, Barclay is also very shy, has social anxiety, can jump the gun when it comes to a conclusion, and others consider him hard to work with. The Pathfinder project pr...

Re: Death Squadron in the Milky Way(RAR)

Vader can force-choke over communications (as shown in E.S.B). Possibly at a considerable distance. All he has to do to keep the Kazon + Trabe in line is get a group conference going, and force choke them all into submission via remote. Between that and the firepower of imperial weapons, they'll be...

Re: Death Squadron in the Milky Way(RAR)

I think it's worth mentioning that the Kazon are the equivalent of Somali pirates. They were slaves a generation ago, rebelled against the Trabe, and have been in space for all of 26 years when Voyager comes around. This is partially why the Kazon are bad at what they do, they're still adjusting to ...
