    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    ^ To be sure, though, Altan Inigo Soong from the first season of Picard was actually the first Soong we’ve met to be quite likable and mostly ethically righteous, unlike Arik, Adam, etc. So there is definitely a bit of range there in the family’s morality across the centuries.

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard Season Two

    It makes sense that Yvette Picard refused treatment, because that’s the only way to justify why 24th Century technology hadn’t helped her. I'm reluctant to call her refusal negligent, because denial or resistance to getting help can itself be a symptom of mental illness. Also, we know from TNG...

    Paramount+ Star Trek: Picard - Season Three

    Although I can’t imagine we won’t be seeing Alison Pill’s Borg Queen again in at least some capacity next season, especially given where they left things at the very end of season two (with the Borg now standing watch over the mysterious anomaly for the Federation, and the Jurati-Queen’s winking...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    SNW's loving treatment of Uhura suddenly feels so much more special as of today.

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    Apparently Tawny Newsome just revealed that Mariner and Boimler are going to be shot live-action in the episode, so take that as you will. Also, Jonathan Frakes is directing the episode, and he's a pretty steady hand. Maybe Pike's Enterprise gets recreated aboard the Cerritos-holodeck in the...

    The Lord of the Rings (Amazon Prime TV Series)

    Yeah, there's definitely a trend in depictions of Sauron to take "fair" and run with "lank-haired, pale, blonde, dainty," etc. I think an Adam Driver or Lance Reddick-type would be better -- someone physically imposing while also being...I dunno..."soulfully" good-looking. I've seen a lot of...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    The 2018 Discovery novel Drastic Measures (which, to date, is the only piece of official storytelling to actually depict Prime Lorca) does show us an upstanding Starfleet captain -- albeit one who's more James T. Kirk-ish, and willing to bend the rules occasionally -- against the backdrop of the...

    The Lord of the Rings (Amazon Prime TV Series)

    I like that the actress playing young Galadriel is named Morfydd, because it looks like one of those randomly-generated names you get in a fantasy MMO when you can't get "Galadriel."

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    I wonder if they were influenced by The Making of Star Trek's assertion that Kirk's first command was a smaller "destroyer-equivalent" vessel. Though it was probably just done so it'd be easy to tell the two ships apart during the battle-scenes. And probably the only reason they did make the...

    R.I.P Gregory Itzen

    In a better world, we'd be nine seasons into him being Mayor of L.A. in Mob City.

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    ^ Yup, Nami Melumed really crushed it with that. I was frustrated by one tiny, particular bit in this episode, where Sam Kirk -- who is still serving on Enterprise under Pike in the alternate future -- tells his captain about his little brother, and Sam's litany is the same dumbshit...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    Using the TNG Romulan-makeup here was a mistake, I think. Ortegas's Stiles-like suspicion of Spock would've probably worked better if these Romulans had looked exactly like Vulcans. (Indeed, I've realized that Spock was probably originally intended to look more humanlike than full "Vulcanians,"...

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    I would totally watch the shit out of a cooking show, hosted by a post-accident Pike, with him beeping cooking-instructions, while Ortegas struggles to do as he's telling her, but can't quite catch all the beeps and their meanings.

    R.I.P James Caan

    So many great films. He's fantastic in Way of the Gun. Took what could have been a routine throwaway-character and gave it depth. Also an underrated villain opposite Arnold in Eraser ("A-plus, kid").

    R.I.P James Caan

    Sonny Corleone could be described as "horrible" on a lot of fronts. Horrible husband, horrible don (his own father even says this in the film). Not to mention a flaming racist, and, of course, a hothead. But he was a great big brother who loved and looked out for his siblings, and Caan sold...

    Press Release PHE Press Release: Star Trek: The Motion Picture Restored Director's Edition and Six-Movie Collection (4k UHD)

    Presumably. Producer David Fein confirmed on Twitter yesterday that the extended TV cut also received a proper 4K scan (similar to the Director's Edition and the 1979 theatrical cut), and presumably this means that the footage will have to match up with the newly-created 4K VFX shot fixing the...

    "Box o' Junk" for me, too. All the way. 100 percent. This is everything I've ever wanted in a physical release for this particular film.

    STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds

    Ortegas: "Sir, is this gonna be a standup fight, or another bug-hunt?" Spock: "All we know is that we have a derelict starship, and a Xenomorph may be involved." Ortegas: "...A what?" Spock: "It's a bug-hunt." La'an: "All I need to know is one thing... where they are." Uhura: "Kick ass, La'an!"...
