Quote from: KevinP on August 04, 2023, 01:50:40 AMI could put this in the What Opera/Now thread, but perhaps it'll be of more interest here.
Quote from: DavidW on August 04, 2023, 04:09:55 PMI had to look that one up-- AVery Brooks is the connection! Well I think I'm the only DS9 fan here!
Quote from: KevinP on August 05, 2023, 03:14:11 PMSorry if I'm hijacking this thread with Avery Brooks' opera career.I like Anthony Davis as a composer. I've had the CD of his Malcolm X opera since the early 90s and like it. I have a few of his opera on CD including the Tania one posted above, plus some non-opera work, but I never knew until today that Brooks premiered the role of X on stage.Atlantic article from '86 praising Brooks' performance:https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1986/09/a-third-stream-opera/667663/
Quote from: San Antone on March 25, 2023, 06:42:57 AMLast night wife and I watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). Underwhelmed; but it was fun to see the same cast more than a decade later.
Quote from: relm1 on September 18, 2023, 05:48:48 AMAre any of us rich? For fans of vintage sci-fi, you might enjoy seeing these items for sale in auction. Yes, they're not cheap but it was exciting to see some of these items even exist to be owned. Heritage Auctions Items we could own include:* Shatner's original toupee* Stuff from Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek Movies and shows, Tribbles, lots of props, scripts, costumes from the original series, Next Generation, movies, etc.* Original scripts (and revisions) of Close Encounters* Star Wars X-Wing model (1977)* Lots of Star Wars and Star Trek costumes and propsIt's fun to look through all these fantastic memorabilia.
Quote from: Karl Henning on September 18, 2023, 06:16:52 AMPatton Oswalt doesn't like Star Trek: TMP. I like that he turned on Independence Day
Quote from: Spotted Horses on September 18, 2023, 06:05:08 AMI also remember the film as a disappointment. The subsequent film, "The Wrath of Kahn" was the first really good Star Trek film, IMO.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 18, 2023, 08:21:38 AMI almost (back in the day) bought one of those blueprints of the ship (available at local bookstore). I wonder what that would go for these days? And, yes, a favorite episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles". Too cute! But boy did they ever multiply quickly [Hence the "trouble"]!!PD
Quote from: relm1 on September 19, 2023, 06:03:28 AMI love The Motion Picture. It is Star Trek at its most cerebral. Fantastic score, oozing with mood and mystery. Sure, it takes itself too seriously but it was clearly the result of a problematic origin. Planned to be a reboot of the tv show with phase 2, then Star Wars was a major hit, the producers wanted their Star Wars but the director wanted his 2001: A Space Odyssey. It's a mixture of the three competing aspects but still has some very major events and pays homage to part of the Star Trek DNA that all the other films will ignore in favor of adventure and action.
Quote from: Spotted Horses on September 19, 2023, 06:05:11 AMMaybe something to revisit, in theory, but I only manage to watch a movie every year or so.
Quote from: relm1 on September 19, 2023, 06:04:49 AMDon't you think it's time you own a tribble?https://entertainment.ha.com/c/search-results.zx?N=53+793+794+791+792+2088+4294934714&Nf=&Ntk=SI_Titles-Desc&Nty=1&Ntt=tribble&ic4=KeywordSearch-A-K-071316
Quote from: San Antone on September 19, 2023, 11:27:19 AMThanks to DavidW who pointed me to this cool webpage, episode guide to Deep Space Nine, I can now skip those episodes which are truly not worth watching. It is getting somewhat better, but Avery Sharp continues to channel "William Shatner chew the scenery" throughout. But where Shatner was so bad it was fun; Sharp is just bad. In fact, I think he is getting worse.Anyway, I'll stick with it; it's supposed to get better.
Quote from: Karl Henning on September 19, 2023, 12:00:45 PMAye, with Shatner, the mannerism is fun (just as in the Columbo episodes in which he's the guest perp) Accept No Substitutes.
