News Comments > Star Control Court Battle Brewing?

In 2013 the corporation purportedly bought a few Star Control assets at a bankruptcy auction

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's not how it went? I'm pretty sure they bought all but one or two specific things from Star Control, including the actual license to the name. IIRC, the only things they didn't get were the characters and the race names.

they seek to establish "The Frungy Defense Fund" to pay the legal fees in this battle, which they say will total around two million dollars

It sounds to me like you guys are just trying to scam people out of two million dollars.

I never understood whatsoever why they didn't release the first on PC.

Because they make a fortune on the double-dippers, and they're worried about piracy.

It really doesn't seem that complicated. If they announce a (much better) PC version for six months down the road, PC players will just wait for that, rather than get a PS4/bone version first.

And thus we see that even the Democrats, for all their pretense, simply cave when written a big enough check by their corporate whore-masters.

We need to get rid of both these shit-ass parties.

I mean, when was the last time a GOOD Alien movie came out? I'm pretty sure it was 1986.

I maintain that Alien 3 was a genuinely good movie. It just wasn't at all what the fans of Aliens wanted. Had it been released as its own movie independent from the Alien franchise, it very likely would have had the kind of sci-fi cult following that attached to movies like Pitch Black. It was a David Fincher (Fight Club, Zodiac, Gone Girl, etc.) film after all.

Fair enough. I thought it was pretty boring, just the first one in a different location. Even so, that still leaves like 26 years since the last good Alien movie.

Maybe Disney won't do anything with them, or will fuck it up just as badly as Fox, but it really can't possibly be worse.

Yeah, clearly $350 million box office for Solo, released in the summer schedule, was just TERRIBLE. Rolleyes

The movie cost $250m to make, with an additional $100m in advertising, so that's break even. Not what you want from a summer blockbuster.

What I meant was, they've released every other Star Wars movie in the winter. This one goes into the busy slot, six months after the Last Jedi, and suddenly they're like "Why isn't everyone going to see Star Wars again?!"

I think it would be better if Disney didn't get Alien nor Predator. 2 franchises they will UTTERLY fuck up. And the only 2 Fox franchises I give 2 ct about. I can already see it, Alien the musical. Alien kid friendly movies, predator plush toys. That's Disney in a nutshell. They ruined Star Wars and now they will ruin Alien and Predator.

Because they weren't... already... ruined? I mean, when was the last time a GOOD Alien movie came out? I'm pretty sure it was 1986.

And again, Comcast wouldn't do any better with it.

Open question:

I'm looking for an example of a movie in which the hero was getting his ass kicked, realized he needed to change his strategy, and did so and won.

There are a few billion of these, but I can't think of any. The better known it is, the better. In case anyone has one off the top of their head.

Kickboxer! Blood Sport! Any Jean Claude van Damme movie!

Read an interesting article today about the 10% at the top. Super long, but well worth the read.

It may come off as "HAHA FUCK YOU POOR PEASANTS" at first, but I think by the end it's self deprecating enough that I do believe the author laments the state we're currently in, even if he's one of the 10%ers.

And millions of movie fans look for the nearest cliff.

Why? Do you think Comcast would do a better job of handling Fox's movie properties? Or that Disney wouldn't be better than Fox?

I have no particular love of Disney, but it's really not hard to see how they would handle the X-men and Fantastic Four SUBSTANTIALLY better than the barrels of shit that Fox has been turning those properties into. (To be fair, most of the X-men movies were pretty good, it was just the third one in each series that was terrible.)
