Meh, with a name like Arbitrage I was hoping for something more like Wall Street.

Just saw Star Trek (2009) a few days ago. Very good. It's the one with these stars, and
a number of others. Lot's of action. Worth the $20 I spent at Wal-Mart for the DVD.

Chris Pine
Zachary Quinto
Zoe Saldana

I am a trekkie, more TNG than TOS, but I am a fan of the genre. The reboot film was good, it opened up the possibilities for several more in the series which is always welcome news, especially after the TNG-cast movies didn't do very well. I blame scripts more than the actors...

Now, when you say DVD, I hope you mean Bluray... it's a sin to watch Star Trek in SD...

The original series has great nostalgia. It started it all, so it will remain special regardless
of any trek series or movie that comes after.

The Next Generation was so-so, (at best).

Star Trek: Voyager was significantly better than TNG.

Star Trek : Enterprise (with Bakula) was terrible and a failed series.

These are my opinions. Your mileage may vary.

The bad or good, depending on ones point of view with movies like the new Star Trek one,
is that they are going back to re-do everything. The same with Superman.

===================================================

"Forget everything you knew about Superman, Wonder Woman, and Lois Lane," he said. "It's a completely new paradigm just, you know, Superman and Wonder Woman are together, and we're just going to have to live with that."

Superman reinvented: Man of Steel, Wonder Woman kiss for first time - CBS News

===================================================

If the world goes on as it has, 100 years from now people watching Star Trek movies/series
will be confused, at best. We're sort of at the beginning, so we can keep it all in our head at this
point. Going back and changing history, of whatever genre also signifies to me a lack of imagination.

I'm more of an TOS trekker. It would have been neat to have seen a "Star Trek: Phase II" series. When Star Wars hit, the major studios scrambled to make big sci-fi, so Star Trek:The Motion Picture finally took off. At the time it was in the top ten of most expensive movies ever made (under Superman that year). I also liked ST:TNG (which in it's first seasons was more like what a Star Trek:Phase II would have been like), then preferred Babylon 5 over DS9. The TOS movie Enterprise-refit is my favorite of the ship models. The model designers put strobe lights and self-illuminated lights all around the ship getting the idea from passenger airliner jets especially in night-lighting mode.

Some folks did awesome CG renderings of the ST:TMP scenes.

Happened to run into these links:

50 Most Expensive Movies Ever Made | TotalFilm.com
List of most expensive films - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I thought it was distressing that seeing the cost adjusted for inflation of "Wall-E" from 2008 to 2012, it shows the dollar, on average inflating by 1.9% per year.

I totally forgot to mention DS9. Glad someone caught that. I don't remember enough about DS9 it to
have an opinion though. Some good and some bad I think.

When I watched Star Trek (2009) on DVD the producers ( I guess ) went through the entire movie
with commentary. When they got to the end, one of them commented on the huge list of ILM people
that worked on the movie. Dozens of people. This has got to be one reason these movies are so expensive to make.


TBBT tried to sort out which Star Trek is best. (Couldn't embed video.)

I've been a fan of Daniel's work since I saw Layer Cake



and really dig what he's done for the 007 series. It's definitely gotten a lot less campy. Looks like another good one coming soon to a theater near you

I have seen only bits and pieces of this movie. It is a remake of another movie,
but I don't want to give away too much.

Players

From wikipedia: Players is a 2012 Indian action thriller heist film


Top clip is one of the dance/song numbers.

Next is the trailer.

Link at bottom should take you to the movie Players with English subtitles,
be sure to click on the You Tube button ' Hide annotations ' to see them.

Yes, Halloween season movie opening this Friday. 4th in this series. But it's one of the more fun suspense focused (little or no gore, thankfully) ongoing horror series.





In the first movie, the male lead was a "successful" daytrader and used a single laptop. They show a scene of him experiencing a "drawdown". (slight spoiler: but he was really dumb in how he "researched" the occult and religious references (and overall conventionally obnoxious character) . i.e. warning not to be a clueless atheist and daytrade!) And yes, for the 4th one there seems to be a cute teen girl as the main lead now. The previous three had mostly adults as the leads. The 2nd had a dog. The 3rd had a neat rotating fan camera.

I don't think I'd recommend this to you. Lots of blood and foul language. I did see it recently though.
Released in 2000. I've enclosed a clip below in case anyone wants to see a horror movie.
I think the clip gives one a much better idea of the movie than the trailer does.

It stars 2 gals playing mid teenage girls.
