    Wing Commander Movie Now (Permanently?) $9.99 on Vudu

    Vudu's monthly $6.99 HDX sale won't start until Tuesday (2/7/17), but Wing Commander is slated to go on sale again. Should be at this price until March 7, 2017, as Vudu changes their $6.99 HDX monthly sales on the first Tuesday of every month. I'll update this thread to confirm, provided anyone...

    Anyone seen Star Trek Beyond yet?

    Right, so my brother had his copy handy and was able to tell me this off-the-bat: The section about F Deck talks about five independent fusion reactors that are used to power the impulse engines and the rest of the ship in the event of saucer separation. (because the warp core runs all the way...

    Wing Commander Movie Now (Permanently?) $9.99 on Vudu

    Don't know if this matters to anyone, but Vudu has gotten rid of the HD (780?p) format, as barely anyone used/bought it, and they've now introduced UHD (4K). So you can still get the movie in SD (480p) and HDX (1080p). If you own it in HD for whatever reason, it's going to get upgraded to HDX...

    Anyone seen Star Trek Beyond yet?

    There was a book back in the 1980s called "Mr. Scott's Guide to the Enterprise", and I'm 90-95% sure that it mentioned that the saucer could separate for emergency purposes, but the only way to reattach it was at a starbase.

    Wing Commander Retires From Netflix & Amazon Prime Free Streaming (August 7, 2016)

    So if they've lost the distribution rights, does that mean it suddenly won't be available for streaming (like on Vudu, FandangoNOW, Amazon Prime, etc.)?

    Independence Day 2

    I thought it was rather ho-hum. None of the new characters were likable enough and they all seemed cookie-cutter. I'm interested in seeing a sequel to see where they take it, but I don't think I'll ever watch this again outside of an Independence Day series marathon (if there ends up being...

    [SPOILERS] Star Wars movie thread... [Don't read this thread if you haven't seen the movie yet]

    I saw it opening night, and I was okay with the "remake of ANH" feel of it. I guess part of it has to do with me having read so many of the EU novels that rehashed the same crap that I got kind of numb to it. But this is Star Wars for a newer generation, and I guess they had to reintroduce some...
