Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Sure, Luke wore black but in the movies, never turned Dark Side himself. Not sure I understand the point there...but yeah he was starting to turn at multiple points, he just resisted....until that stupid flashback in TLJ. But even THAT showed that giving into anger was a bad idea. So it's completel...

Re: The D&D Corner

Huzzah for nat-20s! :D But yes, attacking a Mind Flayer (never mind FOUR of them) when you have no defense against psionic attacks probably ranks as one of the Top Ten D&D Bonehead Moves. ;) (Some others include trying to pickpocket Elminster, trying to attack Drizzt Do'Urden, etc. etc... oh - and ...

Re: Disney Characters Drawn.

*** WARNING: RANT *** As for Meg from the Hercules movie ... who in Hades is Meg? That's not an ancient Greek name, that's for sure. Disneyfication strikes again! :P *looks it up* Ah, Megara - a princess of the city-state of Thebes. The way I see it, it's all for entertainment. For example, all of ...

Re: Disney Characters Drawn.

Only ones I didn't get were the Wreck it Ralph girl (movie was totally forgettable to me, despite video game references) and Anastasia. Fantastic artist. You didn't like Wreck It Ralph? :shock: What if Disney Characters were drawn as realistic clothing models? I dig it. I remember seeing some of th...

Re: The D&D Corner

Ettin is enslaved by Mind Flayers! Good idea. :) Attacking four Mind Flayers when the party is (IIRC) an average of level 5-6? Not a good idea. :shock: :P It's one of those times that I wish I was recording the session - just for that moment. Because Anita insisted she could wound one and they coul...

Re: Disney Characters Drawn.

The sexualization of Disney. You mean, Disney for grown-ups? ;) Disney's been sneaking sexual images into movies for years. As for me... I'm not big on Disney, but let's see. *cracks knuckles* #3 is Snow White. #4 has something to do with the Lion King, but I'd never seen it so I've no idea. #7 (bl...

Re: The D&D Corner

So I forgot to mention the latest game session with Anita's group... So, Jessica (who plays Phalen, the cleric) and her husband, Brad (who plays Alaric, the fighter) were not able to make the game, due to Jessica's grandfather passing away. :( So because Jessica (aside from Anita) is probably the MO...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

The real hate for The Force Awakens didn't really start to grow until after The Last Jedi came out. There were detractors initially but not many. Almost everyone I talked to loved The Force Awakens. I liked it too. But most people changed their minds after TLJ was released. I saw a lot of posts on ...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

I liked The Phantom Menace. Well, you're younger than I am. :D (I mean... dinosaurs are younger than I am too... so that may not be saying much). :lol: Also has the best saber duel in the franchise. Oh, it was a great fight scene. I wouldn't argue that at all. It just wasn't a great Star Wars fight...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

I agree that whatever they're trying to pass off as modern "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" and whatever else they've mutilated in the past few years is just not made for me anymore. But that's not an excuse. I was a kid when I got into Star Trek and us kids back then are no different than kids now and ...

Re: Star Wars / Star Trek Discussion (SciFi In General)

Hmm - if I'm not opening a Pandora's box here, where does the "Kirk vs. Picard" rivalry come from? Personally, I don't understand it. I am, by no means a big Star Trek fan. I enjoy them well enough, but I don't own a single piece of Star Trek merchandise (DVD, BluRay, Shirt, Toy, etc.) However, I b...
