    I think it's time to let the whole Star Trek concept end. I know there will be many who disagree, but I saw the first TV episode in the mid 60's, and frankly I think the Star Trek concept has been over played, and beaten to death. The world does not need more Star Trek, the world needs a new idea in entertainment.

    do you know how star trek started?
    An extra-terrestrial implanted the thought into gene rodenberrys head and then he came up with the idea
    therefore it should be continued however inane
    you doubt me?

    You don´t have to watch it you know!

    I don´t think it harms you in any way if some people enjoy it enough to pay to go and see it.

    the object he juggles is irrelevant. Juggling's been around forever

    It happens all the time. If you stop just going to see the latest block buster, don´t run away from movies in a language you don´t understand and are willing to take a chance you´ll find there are some extremely innovative artistic concepts out there.

    explain. examples.

    I enjoy subtitled movies. I enjoy independant films. I can't stand Hollywood.

    But I still await examples of unique entertainment.

    Eraserhead (you might not like it but it IS innovative)
    Slava´s Snowshow (not even a movie but innovative)
    Inside (innovative if you can cope)
    Breaking the waves (you haven´t seen that story before)
    A very long Engagement (for the directing alone it gets a mention)
    The reduced Shakespeare company

    There´s a few

    Uniqueness, if taken literally, is everywhere.

    If not taken literally, then it's a malleable concept and any discussion about where the line should be drawn is pointless.

    It will never end as long as there is money to be made off of it. At least they are making them pretty good
