“As always: James Bond, the world’s most famous secret agent.”
“It’s a bit like if Christopher Nolan made Batman Begins and decided to cast Adam West.”
“Five seconds in, and this script and science have already officially parted ways.”
“At one point during the riffing, one of the guys remarks that the movie looks like it was edited in a Vitamix, and that’s pretty accurate.”
“It’s great to see at least some aspects of the Superman mythos onscreen not weighted down by angst or failed attempts at achieving Christopher Nolan and/or Frank Miller levels of grimness.”
“It would appear Mirror Universe episodes really need at least a couple of the regular universe characters to cross over, to counterbalance all the cartoonish evil on display.”
“And maybe I’m too jaded by Mirror Universe episodes by now, but I’m not at all surprised they blew up the Enterprise, on a show called Enterprise.”
“It’s not the nonexistent feelings of a fictional woman that’s drawing ire, it’s that two real men are revealing their real (and not so great) attitudes towards women.”
“It looks like the guy who cleans the Enterprise toilets has the week off, so congratulations, Uhura, you are now in charge!”
“Unfortunately, we’re not going to find out how they did the saucer separation trick, or how they made that guy’s head explode in ‘Conspiracy’, or anything else cool that happened in the first season of TNG.”

“There’s one thing Marvel fans, movie fans, and pretty much all of civilized society are in unanimous agreement upon: Please, not another Spider-Man origin story.”
“As it turns out, ‘The Tholian Web’, one of the stronger episodes of the original series’ third season, was actually a Mirror Universe episode all along. We just didn’t know it until 2005.”
“Sci-fi fans looking for boilerplate action might be bored by the long stretches of exposition and introspection, but that’s precisely what makes the movie memorable.”
“2015 has arrived, and there’s no better time to take one last look back at what we here at the Agony Booth accomplished in the previous year. In 2014, our staff members posted 423 articles and videos, and here are the 30 most popular.”
“These are the movies that almost nobody is excited about, and that almost nobody is looking forward to seeing (though, if history is any guide, people will still turn out in droves to pay to see them anyway).”
