So I'm not sure if everyone has seen this yet but I did last weekend and loved it. As a history buff, dunkirk offered everything a war movie should be, with stunning visuals, amazing storyline and a surreal experience that was the equivalent of being in the film. This is one of Nolan's masterpieces, and I genuinely suggest that everyone check it out.

Have you felt it? The Dark side...and the light....

Hello GZers. It has been a while. For those that know me hello again, those that don't howdy. Your friendly neighbourhood sith lord has returned. It's been an interesting couple of years. I've graduated, become a doctor, fallen in love, broken up, went to two comic cons and a host of other interesting events. But I've missed the old site. While I don't know whether I can be as active as I used to be, I'd like to get back in touch with all of you discussing the things we love and care about. After all GZ is the place where people have even found love (sad to see Takeo no longer a mod).

So hi all and remember....the force will be with you. Always.

So I just got this and I must say it is a pretty epic collection. It contains most of the seasons and best of all, it's quality is amazing. I mean seriously, I've watched many Power Rangers episodes on tv, web and even via dvds but this takes the cake. They've really cleaned up and it plays wonderfully on my led tv. If you have the time and the money and a thirst for original episodes in an amazing format, get it. Plus there's the bonus dvds and a 100 page book as well. Not to mention the cool holder for the dvds.

So this came up in my mind. Batman is a central character in the DC universe and I get that he is a great superhero and everything, but a question arises, should Batman be in the Justice League? In the New 52 Universe, Green Lantern asks what are Batman's powers and I think it's important.

Let's review. First off, I accept that Batman is a great detective and a scientist and has super suits and information on the weaknesses of all the other members in case of a Justice Lords scenario. But seriously, BAT IS HUMAN. Most of his enemies in the books are just simple human beings that have erred on the wrong side of the law and possess no metahuman capabilities. Be it Joker, Penguin, Falcone, Catwoman, Two-face etc. etc. Sure you get Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy but they still stand within the limits of human capability to handle.

Superman and Wonder Woman however, face impossible odds and enemies of alien capabilities. Same with Green Lantern and the Flash. They also have the superpowers to deal with them, super strength, flying, speed, lantern ring etc. etc. Suppose Batman had to go against Darkseid or Brainiac. He wouldn't even be capable of running away from an Omega beam, much less deflecting it.

Now I would point out this doesn't diminish him as a character or a great hero but it still has been an itch at the back of my mind. So what do you think GZ?

So I've been watching the some old movies on the VCR lately, and I came upon the Undiscovered Country. Turns out there is a whole debate going on on the internet about J.J Abrams' New Trek and the Gene Roddenberry Trek. I think it would be good to have GZers opinion about this.

As someone who watched all of the new and old Star Trek films, the original series, next generation, voyager, and some of DS9 and ENT, I find that the old series were better. Sure the graphics were not so good, William Shatner sometimes was a ham actor, but there was something iconic about it. Here they always had some new concept, some new moral, ethical, scientific dilemma that required deep introspection and tough decisions. It was about exploring the questions that we never thought we'd have to face. Exploration and science.

Then comes J.J Abrams Trek. While it probably has great graphics, big ships, star cast, it didn't work for me. Star Trek was about giving a message. Star Trek 2009 gave us no message except that of any simple action film of our time. Unlikely slacker becomes great hero, blows up the bad guy and wins at the end. Plus, they kind of damaged the Trekverse with Spock/Uhura and all the emotional crap that brought to a great character. Spock was once more regal in bearing, much more unattached then they made out to be. Plus, Into Darkness made more than a few plot holes.

But again, I'd like GZers take on this.
