Really enjoyed the new movie yesterday!

At least two actors have Amityville connections... see if you can spot them :wink:

Excellent Sherb

I'm pumped, I'm gonna go this weekend. I have watched the trailers now a dozen times and it looks great.

I guess I'm more of a Trekkie than I thought :wink:

I can't think of any Amityville connection though :oops:

I might go see this. Both Sherb and Howard Stern enjoyed it.

I am no good with celebrity knowledge. I recognize the guy who plays Spock from the TV show "Heroes" (which I gave up on last year), but I don't know the other 3 pictured.

Is the Amity connection with 2 of those 4 in the photo?

I'm going to see it at some stage too. As long as it is not a geek convention in there I'll be fine lmao

Last year when I saw Rambo there were about 70 guys in the audience and one suffering girlfriend dragged along to see it. And a young guy in front of me was wearing a red head band like Rambo and watching the preview on his ipod ... sad!

Sherb, I believe the babysitter from the remake was in the Star Trek movie?

I just have to ask... Was there a reference to 'Dammit Jim, I'm not a doctor!" (or however it went)?

also, I am trying to figure out the Amityville connections...can't find anyone other than America's favorite babysitter from TAH remake... Help us Sherb!

If I remember right, I think that character WAS the doctor. I think he said stuff like, "Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor, not a ____!" [fill in the blank]

Ok, so the babysitter is the Gaila, the green woman. Didn't recognize her, but then again I didn't recognize Winona Ryder either :P

Speaking of Gaila... (you must be 18 to view this link!)

So that makes three Amityville connections - go find the other two :wink:

Ya, there is, it was a line that Leonard "Bones" McCoy, the ship's Cheif Medical Officer, used to say quite regularly (along with "Hes dead Jim"). They also explain how McCoy got the nickname "Bones", and it's not because he's a doctor.

Star Trek was awesome. It has surpassed The Dark Knight as my favourite movie of all time. I loved it. Funny, lots of action and an all around entertaining film. Go see it!

How was Sylar as Spock?
Some people are like slinkies. They're really good for nothing but they still put a smile on your face when you push them down a flight of stairs

By the time you finish reading this you would have realized that it doesn't say anything worth reading and that you just wasted 5 seconds of your life

He was awesome. Chris Pine as Captain Kirk was incredible, too. I never thought anyone could top the Shat, but he did it! Simon Pegg as Scotty stole every scene he was in. Plus, having Leonard Nimoy back was incredible, too. I can't say enough good things about this movie. Seriously, drop the ten dollars and go see it, it needs to be seen on the big screen.

She was the character from the planet Klepton, a planetary system inhabited by kleptomaniacs.
