The Game Is Afoot


General Chang: I can see you, Kirk. Captain James T. Kirk: Chang. General Chang: Can you see me? Oh, now be honest, Captain, warrior to warrior. You do prefer it this way, don’t you, as it was meant to be? No peace in our time. “Once more unto the breach, dear friends.” I guess we’re playing this out.

Logic


SPOCK: You’ve done well, Valeris. As your sponsor at the Academy I’ve followed your career with satisfaction. And as a Vulcan, you have exceeded my expectations. VALERIS: I do not understand this representation. (referring to a painting on the wall) SPOCK: It’s a depiction from ancient Earth mythology. ‘The Expulsion from Paradise.’ VALERIS: Why keep it in your quarters? SPOCK:…

Into Darkness


So kid no. 2 and I watched the The Hobbit 2 Electric Boogaloo Desolation of Smaug (SPOILER:  he’s not that desolate).  Loved the movie, other than the obvious, obnoxious cliffhanger. However, we saw some parallels to movies that have gone before. REAL SPOILERS FOLLOW.

Spectre of “the Bodyguard”


So last night I watched Wyatt Earp, the 1994 Kevin Costner flick.  I never intended to watch this movie, as it was one of those copycat releases that were so popular in the 1990s: Tombstone (1993)/Wyatt Earp (1994) (the Earp story) Braveheart (1995)/Rob Roy (1995) (crazy Scots who live in mud and fight those damn brits) Armageddon (1998)/ Deep impact…

Dear @WilliamShatner


I enjoyed being invited to join you at the awards dinner.  I expected to be pushed around by the tv crews as someone of lesser importance.  I did not expect to be included in the nomination for my stellar (hah!) inspirational work on Star Trek.  I hate tuxedos; the only thing worse would be the ST:TMP polyester pajamas.
