Star Trek V Is Still A Piece Of Crap

Decided to watch Star Trek V last night. Awful.

Suddenly Captain Kirk is a super freestyle mountain climber who can scale mountains with no equipment.

Whoever did Nimoy's makeup doesn't know what Spock looks like. Both his ears and eyebrows look wrong.

Spock suddenly has a brother. Oh yeah he just never mentioned it.

Scotty and Uhura are dating now that they are in their 60s. Doohan must have been getting old or forgot how to act. His Scotty is like a parody.

DeForest Kelley also looks very old in this one...his McCoy is also likea McCoy parody.

Why does Kirk keep leaving Chekov in charge when Sulu is sitting right there? Why isn't Sulu off captaining the Excelsior yet?

The center of the galaxy is apparently an hour and fifteen minutes from Earth...or did Kirk and crew spend several weeks in the brig that the director (Shatner) just doesn't show us.

What a terrible film. Thank goodness Star Trek VI ended the TOS movie series on a good note.

Kurt Angle Arrested

This is from WPXI.COM

Officer’s Criminal Complaint filed against Kurt Angle:

On 8-15-09 at 7:50am, I was dispatched to the area of Giant Eagle and Get Go for a report of a PFA violation that was taking place in the lot.

As I was en route to the scene from Robinson Towne Center, dispatch advised me that the male offender (later ID'd as Kurt Angle) was in a sliver Cadillac now headed toward the Robinson Mall on Park Manor and was wearing a green colored t-shirt.

I approached the traffic signal at the intersection of Park Manor and Robinson Center Drive.

As I was at the light, I observed a silver Cadillac STS travelling down Park Manor and making the left hand turn at Robinson Center Drive and continuing onto Park Manor.

As the vehicle passed me, I could clearly see the driver had on a green t-shirt.

I turned around my marked police unit and made a traffic stop on the vehicle as it pulled into the Starbucks lot in Robinson Towne Center.

I was advised by dispatch that the driver should be Kurt Angle and that he was under DUI suspension.

I approached the driver who provided me with his (license) that did ID him as Kurt Angle.

At this time, I was assisted on scene by (two other officers).

I ran Angle's license which did come back as being under DUI suspension.

I advised Angle of the nature of the call and if he violated a PFA that was put out on him.

Angle stated his ex-girlfriend, (name removed), and he had an altercation at his residence in Moon township last evening.

Angle then stated she used his vehicle and went downtown to obtain an emergency PFA on him.

He then stated he was removed from the residence by Moon Township Police.

I advised Angle that his girlfriend had called police and stated he was stalking her at the Giant Eagle lot.

Angle denied this and stated he was looking for a hotel to stay in and never saw her.

Angle blurted out that he had his girlfriend's cell phone even though I had not asked about it at the time.

Dispatch advised that (the victim) was at our station filing a formal written complaint.

Since Angle was under DUI suspension, a tow truck was called for his vehicle.

I checked the area where Angle was sitting incident to his arrest.

There was a medium sized bag that contained Angle's ID as well as numerous credit cards.

This was taken with Angle to avoid anything happening to his credit cards.

In the front seat there was a large zippered black bag.

Inside one of the compartments was a capped syringe and two vials of "Hygetropin" which also contained the label "recumbant Human Growth Hormone Somatropin for injection."

Angle was asked about this item and he stated that he had a legal prescription for it and would be able to provide a copy of it.

Angle was placed into custody for the PFA violation and the drug charges and taken to the Robinson Twp. Police Station without incident by (the officer).

The vehicle was removed from the scene. (An officer) did locate a maroon colored blackberry phone from the car which (the victim) did later ID as hers. It was turned over to her at the station.

At the Robinson Police Station, I spoke with (the victim).

(She) stated she was at the Starbucks Store at the Robinson Towne Center outside at a table using the internet because she was scared to use the computer at her residence as she was in fear of Angle.

At this time, she saw Angle circle the parking lot three times; staring at her while she was outside.

(She) stated she then hurriedly left the area and saw Angle in the silver Cadillac.

She drove to Crucible Research by Giant Eagle and observed Angle in the Giant Eagle parking lot "circling" in his vehicle.

She stated to me that she could see Angle accessing her cell phone that she left in the car and feared he was deleting her text messages and pictures she had of past abuse against Angle.

(She) stated she then called 911 to report the incident. Angle was processed without incident and lodged into a holding cell to await arraignment.

The two vials of "HGH" and the used capped syringe will be logged into evidence.

(The victim) was provided a victim's rights booklet which she signed for. (She) stated she was going to stay (at a different location).

I received a faxed copy of the emergency PFA from Moon Township Police as well as verification that Angle was served the PFA by Moon Police this date at approximately 6:19am.

I made a copy of the emergency PFA she obtained that will be posted in the active PFA section of the police department. I also did file an ICC complaint on Angle.

Shawshank director Frank Darabont to make Walking Dead TV series
Frank Darabont swaps prison dramas for the undead with television adaptation of critically acclaimed comic book

(Charlie Adlard)

The director of The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile is to adapt the zombie comic The Walking Dead for television.

Charlie Adlard, the comic's artist, told Times Online that Frank Darabont was writing and directing a pilot for the US cable network AMC.

"This has been in the works for a while but finally we can announce something positive," Adlard said.

The Walking Dead, which is written and created by Robert Kirkman, has been running since 2003 and has been compared to The Wire and Lost , such is its quality and breadth of scope. The story follows a small band of survivors in small-town America after a mysterious epidemic sweeps the world and causes the dead to rise and feast on the living, and although it does adhere loosely to the staples of the genre, it is no mere exploitation horror comic. The drama is not in the scenes of zombie extermination but in the pain of normal people struggling to keep alive in a world where civilisation has crumbled and died.

Zombie comic artist is pure dead brilliant
Zombies storm the Big Chill festival
Darabont may be known for his powerful prison dramas but he has a past in horror. He wrote The Fly II and last year his adaptation of Stephen King's The Mist touched on the same territory as The Walking Dead: a small-town community struggles to deal with a monstrous threat. Also onboard is Terminator producer Gale Anne Hurd.

Joel Stillerman, a vice president at AMC, which is behind the hit show Mad Men, told Variety that The Walking Dead appealed to the network because of "the quality of the storytelling" in Kirkman's work. The series would stay faithful to the tone of the original novels, he said. "This is not about zombies popping out of closets. This is a story about survival, and the dynamics of what happens when a group is forced to survive under these circumstances. The world [in Walking Dead] is portrayed in a smart, sophisticated way."

Fans of The Walking Dead will be pleased they have film-maker of Darabont's stature on board, more so because a large part of the comic takes place in a prison.

Singer Tackling Battlestar Galactica?
X-Men and Superman helmer rumored for new big screen version.
by Jim Vejvoda

August 12, 2009 - X-Men and Superman Returns director Bryan Singer has reportedly been approached by Universal Pictures about developing and possibly directing their feature film version of the TV series Battlestar Galactica.

Sources for HitFix "indicate that the big decisions haven't been made yet. Singer is the first major creative element to be approached, so once they sign him, they'll go find a writer and they'll figure out exactly which story they're telling."

IGN Movies broke the news in February that the big screen version that Universal and BSG creator Glen A. Larson would bring to the screen would be based on Larson's original TV series, and not the Ron Moore rebooted version that recently went off the air.

As HitFix reminds us, Singer and his longtime collaborator Tom DeSanto had previously tried to bring Battlestar Galactica back to the small screen in 2001 but that version fell apart and paved the way for Moore's later incarnation.
