I'll pay the big bucks to see Avatar or a naked Anne Hathaway in IMAX - but TOS? Probably not.
I saw the Menagerie in IMAX when it was shown here a few years ago at the local theatre. It was beautiful.

Same here. I loved it. And I would pay to see it again without hesitation.

Nice how Roddenbury before the movie started devoted some time to addressing the corrected "The Cage" Special Effect, and recounting how his father was not satisfied with them. Interesting picture into the private personal life and one on one time with father and son times of Gene and his family.

With CG effects, yep - I did the same here in DC during the same release. I enjoyed the novelty of it, but it showed every shortcoming of having been made for television in the mid-1960s - lighting, film stock, design detail, shot composition, pacing...on and on and on.

Anne Hathaway naked does not reveal flaws of a similar nature.

You got something against those who live in the mid-western section of the United States?

Right now, Dennis is gunning for anyone who even thought to call him a blockhead.

Well, if that is how Dennis feels, then he should follow the advice of the late Richard Jones(the OCP Executive in RoboCop, played by Ronny Cox).

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Well, I've called Dennis a lot of things over the years, but I'm pretty sure "blockhead" isn't one of 'em...

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

So have I, and in a very negative light I might add. Something that is no major secret to many. However, to quote a certain Vulcan scientist "that is to be expected of opposing mentalities of extreme viewpoints."

I guess being called a blockhead falls under the category of "the truth hurts".

I might also add that remarks of Anne Hathaway being in the nude is ungentlemanly like.

You know good ol' Chuck? I first encountered him at DragonCon in 2008.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

Actually, the comments about Anne Hathaway is one of those few instances where I agree with Dennis wholeheartedly...

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

You do realize you have a cranky bitch of a mod in here now, who has a low tolerance for bad behaviors. She prefers a peaceful forum, and while she doesn't like to fire up the warning utility and often won't do so the instant someone says something that warrants a warning, she will do so when people don't take the hint which is given when she brushes the cobwebs off of the keyboard and types a post telling people to knock off the personal crap.

If some of you don't like each other, I don't care. But keep the passive-aggressive and the not so passive-aggressive attacks out of here.

Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?

In that spirit let me just offer that Naked Anne Hathaway seems to be a topic on which April and I can set aside our differences. Maybe she should do a good will tour of the Middle East.

Somehow most men (and a few women) can set aside their differences when it comes to discussing naked women.
