"I understand fans were angry that the Klingons dialogue was subtitled because it allows the Klingons to be understood by people who haven't studied the imaginary language for years"

Me? Because I've eaten pizza in NY and UK! But I was only messing, depends where you go in the UK, certainly not Pizza Hut or anywhere similar if you want a GOOD pizza.

Americans do food / service much better than here in the UK.

But again, it all depends where you go.

A little respect please, my gf works there for a living (temporarly though) :D

When she makes custom pizzas and brings them home, they're not bad. Nothing compares to a real italian pizza, in Italy :)

Man...this was looking good until I found out Eric Bana is playing the Romulan. In small Aussie films he's just bearable but he never transfers well into large US movies.

No Klingons in this one... Saw the movie on Monday. I thought it rocked but I'm not a hard core Star Trek fan. My 6 year old liked it lots also.

The main Romulan guy did a good job, Spock / Syler did a good job and Bones was equally well done.

My favorite scene is a young James Kirk stealing his step Dads corvette and driving it off a cliff... No more spoilers.

Err, yeah, but that's not hard... :) My god, in the UK, Aussies have a reputation as HARD workers :eek:

Almost any other country does food better than the US. The service is good, but the food is terrible... I mean, come on, who puts chilli sauce on Sushi?!?!?!!

Ahhh.. "The Gorn" .. one of my favorite episodes. It was one of the few shows I watched with my Dad when I was younger. It got to the point where we were trying to see who could name the episode first - which usually took about 10-15 seconds after a couple of years.

Haha....I haven't seen Munich. I don't think it was blockbuster material or large for that matter. It felt more like a small scale independent movie even though Steven Spielberg was behind it....from what I can remember.

:D
