I'm from a generation where STD was an accepted abbreviation for "standard". And candy bars were five cents. And full-service gasoline was 25.9 cents a gallon.

Just wear a rain jacket when you go to see it, and you'll be protected.

Oh...Waitaminnit, that sentence could be misinterpretted. Just to be clear, I didn't mean wear just a rain jacket. Wearing just a rain jacket to a movie theater could get you into trouble with the Police.

They should've called it Star Trek Unto Darkness so we could call it STUD.

I'm calling it DARKNESS. In all caps. That's what I call it. DARKNESS is the sequel to TREK. It works. It works for everything.

Star Wars: MENACE, CLONES, SITH, HOPE, EMPIRE, JEDI.

Star Trek: PICTURE, WRATH, SEARCH, VOYAGE, FRONTIER, COUNTRY, GENERATIONS, CONTACT, BOOBS, NEMESIS, TREK, DARKNESS.

Hmm, I need to see BOOBS again...

Thanks. I'm now reminded of a classic commercial I'd much rather never have remembered.

Well, space is disease and danger wrapped in silence. Or a glow in the dark condom.

Re: Are we REALLY calling it STiD?

I'm following the AP's recommendation to capitalize all prepositions of four letters or more, and going with STID instead of STiD. It's also easier to type.

I'll support anything that'll keep people from calling it nuTrek or JJ-verse or other similar stupid names

I should have been more clear. It's true, the commercial isn't that bad. What caused a bad memory reaction with me was, back in the day, all the jokers constantly repeating it and the many possible variations. That went on for months.

Re: Are we REALLY calling it STiD?

Earth will be thrown into chaos. Literally plunged into darkness. See one of the most anticipated scifi, space opera movies of the year
After Earth


Oops sorry I meant to say. In the future, Earth our home has been ravaged by detonation. One man will make a stand to decide the fate of the planet. From Mission Impossible, Tom Cruise stars in...

Oblivion



Oh snap still the wrong movie? I'm sorry it's just that there are some many apocalyptic future earth movies coming out this summer I can't keep them straight. This time for sure.

See an all American icon fight against a terrorist in a battle of epic porportions. A terrorist bent on subjugating the Earth with his awesome strength and superior mind. He will not rest till he has made humanity kneel. The most anticipated movie of 2013



I suppose having creative title for these kinds of movies is a big challenge.
