    Historically - the "second" movie always does worse than the first.... The Third - depends on the series or story and fan base... If the second stunk - you lose the 3rd - unless the first was really really good.....

    what they are talking about now, is that Spiderman, Shrek & Pirates "one" were all great movies.... And the second ones were "not as good" now thay have confirmed that Spidey 4 and Pirates 4 will be made.... -- It's all about the money....

    Now - the exception to the rule..... Every other Star Trek (odd numbered) did worse than the one just before it... Wrath of Kahn was an exception to the "Second Movie Curse" - it did way better than "The Motion Picture"

    Star Trek: The Motion Picture
    Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
    Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
    Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
    Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
    Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
    Star Trek: VII Generations
    Star Trek: VIII First Contact
    Star Trek: IX Insurrection
    Star Trek: X Nemesis

    Star Trek XI is due out X-mas 2008 - They hope by re-vitalizing the "Young Kirk, Spock & McCoy story" they can breath new life into the series..... We can only hope..........

    Something else - if you're interested..... Always collect the First 2 issues of any comic book..... The printers don't print too many #2's.. because they aren't sure of the amount of buyers of the first issue... They print comics the month before they are on the stands..... So, issue 2 goes to press the month that the first issue is on the stands....

    Then based on the First issue sales, they can gauge the third issue quantities during the second month....

    So the Second issue is the rarest, and the first of course is collectible - "Just 'cause it's first"

    Yeah - I agree - it was great :) :) Hope you stayed through the credits to see the surprise at the end :) :) :) really cool!!!! :D

    3 hours is a long time to be in a movie though, (Counting 15 min of ads at the beginning). It didn't seem like it was 3 hours, because of the excitement of the movie... LOL

    Had an 911 call at 3:45 this morning. Here's a copy of my report.

    Monday, June 04, 2007. 911 called out Sundown Fire Dept for a transformer fire at Norm's RV Park on Hwy 171, north of Leesville. Safety Officer (Sundown 3) went to station (station 23) and readied all vehicles (Sundown pumper 1 and tanker 3). Sundown Sub-station (station 23A) (Empire Point pumper 1) prepared for action. Asst Chief went to scene to access the situation and declared said situation code 4 (under control). The call-out was 10-22'd (cancelled) after 15 minutes.

    Jeffrey Wimberly, SD3, Safety Officer, SVFD.

    Gunna have a very sunny day here in the greater Phoenix area, it should reach 108 in most parts and up to 110 around Buckeye and a few other outlying towns. They say a "cold front" is moving in so tomorrow should be about 10 degrees cooler. Man, I'm looking for my woollies if it gets that cold....:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Morning. Got upgraded to "big seats" on flight to Phoenix Thursday AM. EZDays, you live near Phoenix? I will be at Mesa Bass Pro Shops Grand Opening Thursday afternoon, Friday and Saturday. If so, come by for a visit. Pro Mariner Rep in the Marine Dept. Hot here as mid 90's all week. Got to mow grass [it turned green].

    Jeffrey, pictures of the houses tha burned the other day. One went up real fast and set the other on fire. Damaged the others next to them. Chemicals on the back deck is thought to have accelorated the fire.

    WoW!!!! jawdrop

    That's scary and amazing at the same time.... How really destructive a huge bad fire is.......

    I wonder if it was a propane grille out on the deck.... Our local fire company always tells us to store (and use) them things on the "Yard" side of the deck - away from the house......

    Just because of this sort of thing....... The house catches fire... and the tank's hose melts and feeds the fire.. or the tank explodes!! :eek::eek:

    My propane grille is out in the yard, away from my trailer. I don't use it much for cooking anymore, but as a painting platform for my modelling.
