    Thanks, Smokey,

    I have to say that the only things with the slightest appeal to me are Who You Gonna Call? and the latest Jason Bourne flick. Both are sequels of course.

    I loved the first two Ghostbusters movies and likewise all of the Bourne franchise so far.

    Well there are some definite choices there. Star Trek Beyond we have to see, as my wife's best friend is a Trekie and she won't shut up until we see it. She heads for the Star Trek convention in Vegas the beginning of August, but I don't think we can hold out that long.

    Seen all the Bourne movies so it makes sense to watch him try to put his past together.

    Secret Life of Pets looks good also.

    Not sure about Ghostbusters. Melissa McCarthy can be funny and she can get tedious.

    Hi Smokey, about time you stopped in

    Not saying those couldn't be good, just not much original there.

    Another Star Trek movie: no-o-o-o-o. My wife and daughter will want to see; personally I'd pay not to have to go with them. I've caught most of the new series on TV and hated it; I hated the original series movies too with the partial exception of The Journey Home.

    Pets, forget it. I hate animated movies especially about small animals. So bite me but Ratatouille was the most over hyped crap that I've ever had to watch.

    I just watched the 2016 Ghostbusters trailer and I was pretty disappointed; I'll probably see it anyway.

    I've really enjoyed the new movies. Much better than most of the old ones. If I remember right Feanor, you didn't care much for the new Star Wars movie either. You say you hate animated movies but I bet you watch Family Guy and The Simpsons.

    Got me there, Jack. I did watch plenty of Simpsons. (Not much Family Guy, though).]

    Yeah, I hated the latest Star Wars; wouldn't be so bad if it weren't déjà vu all over again.

    As a big original Star Trek fan, I enjoyed alo of their movies (including the TV series), although not to the same degree. But not too big fan of Next Generation Star Trek.

    The last two movie installments of ST under J.J.Abram direction were ok too, with new young crew depicting Kirk, Spock and the rest. The actor Chris Pine who depict Kirk is kind of turn off to me. He is just too forward and too wild for role of Capt kirk.

    The new ST movie will have a new director, so lets see how this movie does.

    Didn’t care too much for original Ghost Busters, so will probably let this one slide also.

    Thanks, Smokey! With a cast that includes Bill Shatner and Ron Jeremy and a movie with a target audience (service members & vets), Range 15 might catch on as a fun "B-movie" in the zombie catalog 10yrs from now. I'll try to get ahead of the curve and check it out.
