:lol: Turning 70 in six days. 13 years in the USMC and I was never tempted to get a tattoo. As avid an RAH fan as I am, and as much as I appreciate yours, I'll continue passing on adorning myself with body art. ;)


Congratulations on reaching 70. I agree with you on body art. However I admire some of the body art I see today. Good pictures with sharp lines and multiple colors are nice. Vulgar stuff I can do without.

Another quote contest:
Quote:
The principle involved is the same as used by a hunter to wing a duck in flight by "leading" the bird in flight. But suppose that you face directly into the sun as you shoot; suppose the bird can not be seen from where you stand, and you have nothing to aim by but some old reports as to how it was flying when last seen?

Maybe, if the characters played by Hawke and Snook turn out to be the same person :lol: , that might qualify as being based on AYZ. Otherwise, based on what I see in the trailer, I can't see any connection other than it deals with time travel.

It seemed pretty clear to me that it does contain Heinlein's story. What I have doubt about is the extra plot line (the "Fizzle bomber", in the story just a brief mention of the "Fizzle War of 1963") added to the story. I assume that was done to add drama and action to the movie. I'm willing to wait and see the movie to judge if it works.

Looking back at the trailer, I realized that my mind pictures of the characters was so totally different from what was being shown, and combined with the 'Fizzle Bomber' subplot, that I was thrown off completely from noticing any other similarities.

I couldn't get past the fact that what's her name simply looked like a girl dressed in men's clothes and the bartender in the story was many years older than shown in the trailer.

Maybe if Hawke had been shown as the younger version and someone like Bruce Willis as the older version, I might have been less critical. And I will bet that the movie includes a stormy sex scene, different from the off-scene way Heinlein did it.

Like the movie Starship Troopers, I will probably watch it once and then put it out of mind for ever after.

I don't believe that Gee-Gollywood will ever be able to accurately produce an acceptable adaptation of a Heinlein story. But, I am prejudiced.
