    I'm biased in favor of From Russia With Love, but yeah, several have great openers. Living Daylights opened really strongly (IMO).

    Maybe so, but the US seems to be growing a large contingent that increasingly believe that strength requires rejecting empathy for those who disagree with or differ from them. I think TheRay's right...

    I'd vote Hank Pym (Ant-Man Giant Man, Goliath, Yellow Jacket). He's never recovered from a singular attempt at injecting some drama into him.

    I was in my office when we heard. I remember telling my boss the next day that I wasn't afraid of what the terrorists might do next, but I was absolutely terrified of what we were about to do next.

    GLs were still around pre-Crisis, but the authorities of Earth banned them from their territories. I forget what the infraction was that caused the rift.

    No to both. The station is basically a United Nations, created in the aftermath of a war in hopes of preventing another. There are stand-alone episodes, but the series was designed with an...
  7. You have 15 minutes. The best movie is...?

    What is the best movie based on its opening?

    Not the whole thing.

    Opening credits included, what movie is best based on its first 15 minutes?

    I much preferred The SA Atom over the early-GA Atom's original costume. However, I prefer the late-GA era Atom costume to either the original, or the SA remake.

    Flash's look definitely benefitted from the SA remake. Kirby's dream dimension Sandman had a better look than the GA skin suit makeover, but neither was as good as the original GA gasmask and fedora...

    I didnt present it as an absolute. I said I could see an argument in contrast to the view the less optimistic tone results from a choice to have the focal character in a place of lost optimism.

    The late 60s were. Early to mid, the majority were still kidding themselves pretty hard.

    It helps, especially now. IMO, part of its power lay in Star Trek, with its rosy new of human destiny, owning so much of of the space-future-history turf. B5 seemed like the first one to come along...

    Worst: They get a creative team that doesn't understand her, trying either to overemphasize her sexy playfulness, or completely excise it in trying to portray her knowledge and strength.

    I admit to surprise at what a strong showing Triplicate Girl has made.

    Watson took a real beating in film. In the original, while definitely not the equal of Holmes' genius, Watson was very capable.

    Love the character as I do (and his creator), Ditko saddled Electro...

    An oldie I just rewatched, No Way Out. Will Patton tells Kevin Costner he'd die for Gene Hackman.

    The investigative incompetence of cops. Their CSIs spend hours crawling all over a crime scene, but miss the vital clue Batman spots whilst hanging outside a window 30 feet away, in the dark.

    This one's a staple of WWII movies. There always seem to be whole platoons of troops just lounging about, but armed to the teeth, ready to jump aboard the truck conveniently idling outside within...

    Possibly. I could also see a legitimate argument that TOS and TNG were both created during relatively optimistic times in the US, while Picard and DISC come from a less optimistic place. It may be...

    Returning to the OP, I'm wondering if it will really be meaningful to compare franchises' pre- and post-covid incarnations? Studios' desire to move to streaming makes for a very different experience...

    Roddenberry seemed more open to scripts that were reflective of the time's human and social flaws during TOS than he was whilst still wielding influence over TNG. "Mudd's Women" is a particular case...

    Except, Terra was never a hero. Things may have twisted her, especially in later revision, but she was created as a hideous sociopath, hiding her true nature to infiltrate the Titans.

    I think the answer in 1967 would have differed considerably from the answer in 1987.
