GODZILLA: SINGULAR POINT---trailer released for the Netflix animated tv series.

THE SPACEMAN OF BOHEMIA---Adam Sandler will star in this Netflix sci fi movie based on the novel. The synopsis says, "The story follows an astronaut (Sandler) sent to the edge of the galaxy to collect mysterious ancient dust. He soon finds his earthly life falling to pieces, and he turns to the only voice who can help him try to put it back together. It just so happens to belong to a creature from the beginning of time lurking in the shadows of his ship." Johan Renck (CHERNOBYL) is the director.





MOON KNIGHT---Oscar Isaac is in negotiations to star in the Disney+ tv series based on the Marvel comic book.





AVATAR 2---Kate Winslet commented on a photo of her in the sequel, “I had to learn how to free-dive to play that role in AVATAR, and that was just incredible. My longest breath hold was seven minutes and 14 seconds, like crazy, crazy stuff. I play a water person. I am a water person.”





BATWOMAN---photo released of Javicia Leslie in the new Batwoman suit.





STARGIRL---Nick Tarabay will play Eclipso and Jonathan Cake will play The Shade in Season 2.

Y: THE LAST MAN---the FX pilot starring Ben Schnetzer, Diane Lane, and Imogene Poots has begun filming with PETA announcing that Ampersand the pet monkey will be CGI, “For over two years, PETA has been urging the Y: The Last Man team not to prop up a cruel industry that tears baby monkeys away from their mothers and forces them to endure a miserable life stuck inside cages and in front of cameras. The decision to switch to computer-generated imagery is the only ethical option for depicting animals on screen and is welcome news for primates who suffer in the entertainment industry.”
Also, producer Nina Jacobson tweeted, “my first show ever where the Showrunner, Director, Producers, DP, Production Design and Costume Designers and Stunt Coordinator are all women, and that’s not even a complete list.”

RICHARD PRYOR---Kenya Barris is the writer/director of this untitled MGM Richard Pryor biomovie.

TRIVIA---Leonard Nimoy was the original director for STAR TREK: GENERATIONS, known for its infamous death scene of Capt. James T. Kirk. Co-writer Brannon Braga said, "[The] director... was initially Leonard Nimoy... Nimoy read the script and hated it and felt [the only interesting part] of the script was Data's emotion chip story. By the way, he probably wasn't wrong." Braga said a feud began between Nimoy and producer Rick Berman because Nimoy refused to direct the movie, "They never spoke again. They were both p*ssed at each other."
Berman said, "When Leonard read it, he said, 'This needs a page-one rewrite'. I told him [no]... and we parted ways...It was unusual for us to write a script with no director involved at all. Mr. Nimoy is right that he probably should have had a pass at the script."
Nimoy was also unhappy with his cameo as Spock, "There was a character called Spock who had a dozen lines you could easily assign to anyone else, which they did."
Nimoy summed up his feeling about GENERATIONS, "Star Trek seven was a media event. GENERATIONS... two captains meet at the Nexus. Okay. Something to sell. And they sold very hard on it... But I don't think the picture was very good...My feeling about GENERATIONS is very negative."

Went by to fast. Couldn’t make anything out.

I can barely hold my breath for 30 seconds!

Worst looking cosplay ever.

I'm glad I was a kid when Generations came out. I loved it at the time. Watching it as an adult is an exercise in frustration. There's a good movie in there, but it was shoved aside for the sake of having Kirk and Picard meet. And what happens then? Kirk bosses Picard around in the kitchen, they argue a bit, during which time Kirk almost quotes a line Scotty had in "Relics," Kirk fights a guy and dies. There was no reason for him to even be there. His final log entry in The Undiscovered Country was the perfect send off. Nah! Let's put him with Picard and market the whole movie around that.

And don't even get me started on them saving Data's emotion chip for the movies. Dunce move.

And they call Star Trek The Motion Picture the "Motionless" picture. My gawd Generations drags on and on and on. Its torture.

I greatly enjoy Generations but they did Nimoy dirty. They asked him to come on after the script and release date was locked with an *extremely* short per-production schedule (which may explain why they gave it to David Carson, whos better known for doing television). His complaints with the script are valid - it has a lot of starts and stops - but Moore & Braga are just a pair of jerks over what they made. "Yeah its bad" is about on the level with Joss Whedon's apology for Alien 4.

The more I hear Moore talk about working on the show, the less I understand him. In a couple of interviews/commentaries, he complains about how formulaic the writing was on the show. "We hated writing observation lounge scenes because it always went like this..." You know who could've changed that? You. You were on the damn writing staff. Then he talks about a "confusing" incident where Braga left his office when they were in a heated discussion and Moore threw something into the wall. Yeah, dude, that's a natural response when someone's being that unreasonable. Fight or flight.

I'm sure the scheduling debacle had a lot to do with the log jam that was the seventh season leading directly into Generations. Moore and Braga (and the writing team that worked on the unused script) were writing the final season concurrent with the screenplay since production on the movie was to begin two weeks after production on the show wrapped. It was an untenable situation clearly wrought by number crunchers. I can't help wondering if the rewrite would have happened had the movie been shot in '95 instead.

At least the writing duo are sane enough to admit that "All Good Things..." should have been the movie.

Generation is a pretty good - not that great - film.
Yes, writing is sometimes goofy.

But..

Gorgeously filmed by John Alonzo.
Terrific villain and deliciously acted by McDowell.
Great set work, like that observatory room - nice.
Great location work.
First rate visual effects
Great score

Pretty darn entertaining

I agree with all of this and I enjoy the picture to some extent, but still: the wildly implausible Nexus, Picard's atrocious choice to time-travel back only to the very moment of impending doom, and not only killing off Kirk, but having him die in a stupid fistfight, and for nothing, make it a bad movie. So on balance, it's a low point in the franchise but FAR from the lowest.
