    The F-14 has a great roll rate. Dunno how the Su-57s is, but there's a good chance the F-14's is better.

    Widely separated engines with thrust vectoring nozzles... I would think the roll rate of the Su-57 would be very good.

    Aerodynamically the F-14 is pretty good because it gets lots of body lift in the same way the Flanker and Fulcrum do...

    I am not expert but I would say being able to fly with a straight wing any advantage the F-14 might have would be at very low flight speeds and even then the Su-57 has lots of wing and body lift area... and thrust vectoring means it can point its nose where it pleases...

    And those 30mm cannon shells will do serious damage.

    All the newly made Russian space oriented movies are fantastic, so they have a high entry point with any new one.
    By the way, this one was really made at the ISS, so ... What a Face

    Not a movie, but I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the "Star Trek: Strange New Worlds" series (10 episodes) that aired this summer.

    Always been a sci-fi buff, and while I prefer hardcore sci-fi, the lighthearted style of Star Trek (TOS, TNG, VOY, DS9... I guess ENT works too) is very entertaining to me. Much like how I loved the oftentimes even sillier Stargate series (SG-1, Atlantis)... That's before the Stargate people tried to make a serious, dramatic soap opera of it all with SG Universe... It had its moments, but that was mostly because of Robert Carlyle.  

    The recent Star Trek series "Discovery" followed the same pattern, had its moments but was ultimately quite annoying. Too much contrived personal drama, too much decidedly non-Trek-like atmosphere, characters act like children throwing hissy fits half the time. Too much "wokeness" forcibly injected into it all as well. Very tiring. Not to mention the timeline issues.

    Universally panned by fans, too. Obviously. Kinda like how "Rings of Power" was thrashed by actual LotR fans, as it was plagued by the same defects.

    Anyway, people were saying that "Strange New Worlds" had gone back to the classical recipe, including the episodic nature that I love in these types of series. I was skeptical at first but as the positive reviews by actual Trek fans started piling up I decided to give it a try.

    And yep, it works. There is interpersonal drama of course, but it's not childish and "woke", thank god. It feels like actual Star Trek for once, a wee bit silly but fun and surprisingly clever.

    Now they're working on the 2nd season, which I guess will air next summer. Not gonna spoil anything in case anyone's actually interested in it, but since it takes place shortly before TOS and several key characters have already shown up, I wonder if Pavel Chekov will pop up in the 2nd season, and what they'll do with that now that everything even remotely "Russian" is toxic.

    Well, I think you should pay attention to "Orville" and "Star Trek: Lower Decks" if you still haven't done it. In addition, the first season of the TV show "Dark Matters" is very good (but only the first season, because the next two seasons could not keep the bar, and the first as a whole can be considered as an independent finished story).
