Data Sings Scanning for Lifeforms on Star Trek Generations

data generations sings scanning for lifeforms song
I don’t apologize for putting this song in your head. Data’s earned it after these years, sitting barely utilized at Ops.

I can’t get this out of my head after a Star Trek: Generations movie rewatch, so I’m putting it in yours. Data inserts his long-unused emotion chip from the Star Trek the Next Generation series. The chip has mixed audience results. But the best part, aside from an emotional reunion with Spot, is his joy in being asked to do what he does best on the Enterprise bridge: scanning for lifeforms.

As a creative android even before the chip (see: Ode to Spot), I crack up every time I think about this. If you’re rewatching the TNG movies to get up to date with the Star Trek Picard CBS All-Access TV show, don’t skip Generations. It’s better after a few decades have passed. Really.

Here are the lyrics to this earworm.

Scanning For Lifeforms

Lifeforms.

You tiny little Lifeforms.

You precious little Lifeforms.

Where are you? (Cha cha cha cha cha, CHA!)

It doesn’t come across that exciting on paper, so here is Data being playful as he scans, earning mass confusion from Riker and the crew. Seriously, watch this with Data first, and then again to catch Riker, Deanna, and the extras react.

Also, notice that Worf isn’t fazed by this bit of weirdness. He even nods a bit in appreciation at the end. What a great, almost unnoticed character moment.

Then keep playing it to drive everyone around you crazy. I can’t stop giggling. Word on the internet says Spiner ad-libbed this, and those are the cast’s actual reactions. It’s the best part of Star Trek Generations, besides the crashing of one semi-important capital ship. Enjoy!

About The Peetimes
I gave you 2 good, if short, Peetimes. One is in the beginning of the movie and the other is at the end.

Since the movie is not very long, either one should do. I avoided the best scenes containing humor/mayhem/general wackiness.

The Trouble With Doctor Dolittle

DoLittle

Dolittle is Robert Downey Jr.’s first movie to be released after his triumphant turn as Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame.  (C’mon, Academy.  Don’t let me down.  Nominate him!)  Unfortunately, the trailer looks less than stellar.  In fact, Hollywood doesn’t have the best record when it comes to adaptations of Hugh Lofting’s children’s book character who talks to animals.  So let’s take a deeper look at the trouble with Doctor Dolittle.

Doctor Dolittle (1967)

Rex Harrison starred in this musical movie adaptation.  The production suffered numerous setbacks and difficulties especially because of the large numbers of animals required for the film.  The movie went over budget.  It received mixed to negative reviews.  It bombed at the box office.  Yet due to intense lobbying by the studio, the movie received a Best Picture nomination.  One it does not deserve.  While I’ve never seen the movie, the general consensus from those who have is that it’s a long slog at two and a half hours.  It certainly doesn’t belong in a class with Best Picture winner In the Heat of the Night and fellow nominees Bonnie and Clyde, The Graduate, and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.

Dr. Dolittle (1998)

Eddie Murphy starred as Dolittle in this genuinely funny adaptation.  Along with The Nutty Professor and Mulan, this movie is part of his amazing ’90s comeback.  Critics gave the movie mixed reviews but it was a box office success.  Featuring celebrity voices such as Norm McDonald, Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres, Chris Rock, Jenna Elfman, and Gilbert Gottfried as the animals, the movie was a fun summer romp.

Dr. Dolittle 2 (2001)

This one’s un-bear-able.

Eddie Murphy returned for this less funny, less entertaining sequel.  Dolittle tries to help a bear (voiced by Steve Zahn) mate.  Again, the movie received mixed reviews but was a box office hit.

Dolittle Sequels

Kyla Pratt, who plays Murphy’s daughter in the first two films, took over the lead role in three direct-to-video sequels.  I honestly didn’t know they made any more after Dr. Dolittle 3.  With titles like Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief and Million Dollar Mutts, you can probably guess at the quality and target audience of these movies.

Dolittle (2020)

There have been many rumors of a troubled production with the latest adaptation.  Reportedly, tensions became strained between director Stephen Gaghan and Robert Downey Jr. to the point that Downey would only respond to him with monkey noises.  According to a now deleted Reddit post by someone claiming to have worked on the set, the filmmakers began filming scenes before they had planned where the animals would be standing.  According to this same source, Gaghan also wanted to fire the pre-visual animation department and just sort of wing it on the day of shooting.   None of this bodes well for the new film.  Hollywood loves breathing new life into old properties but maybe it’s time to finally close the book on Doctor Dolittle.

From Eddie Murphy to Robert Downey Jr., don’t miss your favorite star’s best movie moments!

Is there anything extra during the end credits of Deadpool 2?

Deadpool 2 Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Deadpool 2.

Anything Extra Details

Long story short: stay to the end of the credits.

The credits begin with story-related crayon drawings of the main cast/crew, lasting for 1:45 minutes.

After this, there is a must-see extra scene. Seriously, if anyone tries to leave the theater, you drag them back.

After the mid-credits scene, there isn’t anything else until near the very end of the credits, when there is a hugely humorous musical extra (audio only). However, many people have reported that this extra song didn’t play in their showing.

The credits run for approximately 9 minutes.

About The Peetimes
All 3 Peetimes are pretty good, but I’d recommend the 1st or 2nd.

The Peetimes have no big action sections, but there’s no avoiding the continuous stream of humor.

Is there anything extra during the end credits of Deadpool?

Deadpool Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Deadpool.

There is an extra scene at the end of the credits that lasts for about 1 minute. You’ll love it if you’re a fan of 80’s action movies. If not, you’ll still love it. 🙂

Keep an eye out for a cute cartoon version of Deadpool playing around on the screen, during the 1st minute or so of the credits.

The credits run for approximately 7 minutes.

About The Peetimes
I was able to find 3 decent Peetimes that only have a little bit of humor, and no action. I’d recommend the 2nd Peetime over the others.

#1 There’s an important plot point in this Peetime, but most of it’s in the preview, and it’s pretty easy to summarize. There’s no action.

#2 This is the best Peetime of the bunch. There’s no action, but has some funny lines, most of which were in the trailer. (Ie, it’s the bar scene where his friend tells him how ugly he is.)

#3 This Peetime runs for 4 minutes, but bonus points if you can get back in about 3 1/2 to catch a funny line. Otherwise, this is a good Peetime.

Is there anything extra during the end credits of Ant-Man?

Ant-Man Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Ant-Man.

Anything Extra Details

There are TWO extra scenes for Ant-Man. The first is about two minutes into the credits. There’s another extra scene after the credits end. You DEFINITELY want to see both extra scenes.

The credits run for approximately 10 minutes.

Rated (PG-13) for sci-fi action violence

About The Peetimes
It was hard finding peetimes for this movie because it has a lot of action and humor that you don’t want to miss. Plus, there’s a lot of character and story development.

Both peetimes are good, but I would recommend the 2nd one. You’ll only miss a tiny bit of action.

#1 Most of this peetime is a Q&A between Dr. Pym and Scott about how to proceed.

#2 A great peetime. It ends as the action gets started.

Is there anything extra during the end credits of Guardians Of The Galaxy?

Guardians Of The Galaxy Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Anything Extra Details

This is a Marvel movie. Of course there is an extra scene after the end credits.

But keep a close eye on the screen very near the end of the credits. You need to read the disclaimer.

The credits run for about 7 minutes.

Rated (PG-13) for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action, and for some language
Genres: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Superhero, MCU
USA release date: 2014-08-01
Movie length: 2 hours 1 minute

About The Peetimes
There honestly isn’t a “good” Peetime in this movie because there were so many characters, a lot of action, and a ton of jokes. The movie can be a little confusing even without missing anything, so most of the Peetimes involve action sequences where there’s no plot development.

#1 Is mostly action, but it’s the shortest of the three Peetimes.

#2 It’s almost all a long chase scene. No plot or character development.

#3 is important plot development, but easy to sum up. There is no action.

Note: I wrote a “Primer for Guardians of the Galaxy” in my review – button at bottom of this screen – that gives you the background you need to understand the plot/character development during the first 30 minutes of the movie.
