1. Peanut
2. Peanut Butter
3. Almond
4. Plain
Distant 5. Pretzel (terrible)
Can't agree with you here.  I LOVE pretzel.  I'd put it Peanut, Pretzel, Plain.

Looks good.  Can't be worse than the last film.  Blech.

I saw it today and I thought it was better than the first one.  It definitely had some annoying plot holes (some mentioned by Bill and a few more that weren't), but then I remembered this is Star Trek (famous for remodulating something at the last minute to save everyone) coupled with Damon Lindelof (arguably the laziest writer alive) and you get what you get....a decent popcorn flick.

I just hope that When JJ Abrams screens Episode VII, the lightsabers aren't causing so many damn lens flares!
Agreed.  I thought this was a fun movie.  What I think doesn't bode well for Abrams' SW7 is the fans are ALREADY sharpening the knives, and there is basically nothing done on it yet.  This movie was fun, it looked good, and it was entertaining, and meant to be enjoyed by the masses without 50 years of cannon bearing down on it.  It was as good as a few of the Trek features past, and better than more than a few of them.  Movies are not TV shows, so one should not expect the depth or methodical nature when seeing a movie.  The filmmakers don't have 200 episodes to flesh out a character, they have 2 hours.

Great finale.  The only thing I would have changed was that line Michael Scott delivered about his children getting married.  It was really funny, but it would have been so awesome if the only thing you hear his character say in the final episode was "That's what she said!"

Nice.  I really love the look of the vintage stuff.  So cool.

Prequel Bashing is SO 2003.

I'll check it out.  I do have some vintage books like OT novelizations and things of that nature.  I don't want to devote a ton of time to going through all of this, but at the same time, I don't want to get screwed.

I have to say that Giamatti looks pretty bad ass.  Who'd have thought that anyone would ever type out that statement?

I'm hoping someone can help me with this...

Back in the day (the 90's) I was big into collecting Star Wars novels.  I have lots of hard covers and paperbacks (some of the same title) and I bowed sometime between TPM and AoTC.  I have all these books stored now, but I'm ready to let them go.  My question is: does anything from this time period stick out to the collector in the know as valuable?  I plan on putting these out at a yard sale unless there is some interest/value that I am not really aware of.

I know without a list this is a difficult question, but is any of this worth anything?

No joke, the ceramic frogs line made me literally LOL at my desk.

I'd love for them to revive the Rogue Squadron series.

Agreed.  The choreography of every action sequence in the film is so impressive.  I thought that Rhodes was (again) underdeveloped, but minor quibbles as you said.
