  FSR: <maxi> See "Into Darkness," for heaven's sake! I had given up on Star Trek films a long time ago, after the trauma of seeing the ghastly Star Trek V. I had no intention of seeing the new film. A friend called me up two nights ago and asked if I wanted to see it. OK, I suppose so. I had no great expectations. I was blown away! The best Star Trek film ever!

  maxi: <FSR>, I have a 9 year old kid. Do you think I should take him too? Does the film have explicit violence?

  FSR: <maxi> That wasn't something I was focusing on (my "kid" is 23), so I had to think about it. I found this online, and think it is accurate and responds well to your question:

<Note to Parents: This film contains violence (occasionally graphic, but not bloody), terrorism, premeditated murder, space battles, one adult situation, more swearing than I expected, and one scene of gratuitous near-nudity. It should be fine for anyone who is capable of handling a PG-13 film, which really says something about today’s PG-13 films, doesn't it? Of course, you should use your own best judgment when it comes to your children.>

I don't recall the "adult situation." The scene of gratuitous near-nudity was a couple seconds of a woman in her underwear. Indeed gratuitous, not that I exactly minded. In my recollection the swearing was a few "s*it"s when the ship got hit by a torpedo or some such. I don't think I would have a problem taking a 9-year-old to it unless he/she was unusually sensitive.

I don't recall the "adult situation." The scene of gratuitous near-nudity was a couple seconds of a hot young woman in her underwear. Indeed gratuitous, not that I exactly minded. In my recollection the swearing was a few "s*its" when the ship got hit by a photon torpedo or some such. I don't think I would have a problem taking a 9-year-old to it unless he was unusually sensitive. More family-type reviews at http://bit.ly/136xQ6u.

  maxi: Thanks, <FSR>. It sounds pretty harmless. The kid's problem is he cannot see exciting stuff in the evening because he gets insomnia so I'll take him early afternoon. (I married late in life, by the way.)

  maxi: Hey <FSR>! I went to see the movie with the little guy this afternoon. I am writing so soon because from your posts I get the feeling that you are the kind of person who worries about the effect his words and acts will have on other people. Well, in this case there is nothing to worry about. He loved the film! And as far as I am concerned, I do believe it to be one of the better ones of the franchise.

I read somewhere (it was the last edition of the magazine KARL [http://www.karlonline.org/], if I remember correctly), that his historical Elo rating was around 2699 and made him among the 10 best players in the world in November 1933.

Not true. http://www.chessmetrics.com/cm/CM2/... You must have been thrown off because Chessmetrics has him under "S" rather than "K."

<Cemoblanca>'s recollection is close to correct. Chessmetics indeed has his peak rating at 2699, in November 1932. His peak world rank was No. 6, in May 1933. http://www.chessmetrics.com/cm/CM2/...

May-30-14  piltdown man: How can they be playing the Kasparov-Petrosian variation, thirty three years before Kasparov was born, and Petrosian still in nappies?

  keypusher: <piltdown man: How can they be playing the Kasparov-Petrosian variation, thirty three years before Kasparov was born, and Petrosian still in nappies?>

Kasparov played some amazing games in this variation early in his career. Chess variations are sometimes named for players who developed or popularized them, rather than whoever first played them.

This is screamingly obvious, but kibiitzers ask the question often for some reason. Along with my other favorite, <why hasn't this game been kibitzed?>

<he and I were the only chessplayers at a Jewish boarding house where, I still remember it, the cooking was indeed infinitely better than anything offered by the smarter hotels of the resort.>

Today, of course, they have <Jamie Oliver>. The only guy who was aware that anybody who can boil an egg can make a master chef in England. :-)

Oct-13-15  Garech: I never get tired of playing through this game,a sheer masterclass of dynamics! God only knows the heights Mir Sultan Khan could have reached had he been able to devote his life to chess instead of servitude. Is there anyone else with a perfect score against Capablanca?

Yeah. Iljin-Genevsky and Verlinksy, to name two. When you only play one game, it sometimes happens.

There's only one player with a winning record against Capablanca based on more than one game played, but I'll let you figure out who it is.

  ChessHigherCat: <EmperorAtahualpa:
Why doesn Black's queen never take the pawn on f2, by the way? For instance, 51...Qxf2 or 55...Qxf2.>

If 55...Qxf2+ 56. Rc6-c2 wins the Q: If 56..Qh4 57. Rh2 or if 56...Qf3 57. Bg2 or if 56...Qg1 57. Bh3!

51..Qxf2, 52. Bg4 and the Q has a whopping total of 1 square to choose from (h4), 53. Bc8 and if BxB, Rx B or if Ba8 Ba6 and either case white can finally penetrate the b(l)ack ranks.

I seriously doubt that I'm the first one to ever analyze these variations. Can anybody confirm those lines?

Jan-13-17  beatgiant: On 51..Qxf2, <52. Bh5> Qh4 53. Rh2 looks like an immediate win.

  ChessHigherCat: <beatgiant: On 51..Qxf2, <52. Bh5> Qh4 53. Rh2 looks like an immediate win> Good point. Trading the Q for a B + R wouldn't usually be so dramatic but here 53...QxBh5, 54. Rxh5 gxh5 55. g6 Nf6 56. Bg5 Ke7 57. gxh and black's goose is cooked.
