Robert De Niro is the biggest star on the list, but not for his work in genre, so no Picture Slot. I thought about Evelyn Ankers, arguably the first scream queen, but in the end I went with a picture from Star Trek, the late Glenn Corbett as Zephram Cochran. I understand the idea of reboots, but the casting of James Cromwell as Cochran in First Contact completely spoiled the movie for me. I like Cromwell as an actor, but somehow he's supposed to morph into Glenn Corbett at some point and that's just not possible.
Many happy returns to the living on the list and to the dead, thanks for all the memories.
ParaNorman released, 2012

Predictor: Tiger’s Claw, published by Dale Brown in 2012
Prediction: In the Summer of 2014, cash rich China pushes the United States Navy out of the dominant position in the Pacific.
Reality: There's plenty of ridiculous saber rattling actually happening in 2014 from the Ukraine to Gaza to Ferguson, but none of it involves the American Navy being pushed out of the Pacific.
Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
