Unkoof? Time enhance your word power.

I'll forgive you for not knowing an AppleBloomIsm since you don't watch the show, but it was a deliberate choice of spelling.

It's actually pretty satisfying in a way, as someone who loved the film, to see the way the more unreasonable and frustrated would-be critics flail without having any effect whatever on...anything.

Re: The Improving the JJprise thread

Well, at least this topic has changed from the 'improve the J.J.prise by replacing it with the tmp enterprise' thread into the... Random nonsense thread?

It is, and I'm not stopping any of them from doing so, I just like giving them a good poke with the proverbial stick now and then.

For the same reason I haven't paid to see it, but I did see it.
So, you didn't refuse to see it out of a positional statement, then, because you ultimately saw it when you didn't have to pay for it.

You refused to see it because you're cheap?

Not sure that's the crusade you were looking for...

That included much of the original cast.
Of course they would say that! Everyone of them was being paid to do those roles.

Their paychecks were at risk.

It doesn't mean that TNG was a poor iteration of Trek.

There's the matter of the inevitable crack of "how can you criticize something you haven't even seen?", so in order to be taken seriously in criticizing it, seeing it is something of a requirement.

Fortunately, I had a pass to a press screening, so I didn't have to deal with the dilemma of supporting something I knew was going to be a big steaming pile just so I could credibly point out that it's a big steaming pile.
