Simon Pegg to co-write script for Star Trek 3

I'm thinking this is EXCELLENT news. I LOVE Simon Pegg. I think he is really smart and his movies with Nick Frost are able to send up their respective genres while still having total respect for people's enjoyment of them. Plus it's time for a fun, tightly scripted ST movie. » 1/22/15 11:18am 1/22/15 11:18am

One Advantage Physical Media Will Always Have

Digital distribution is the way of the future! But there is one area where downloaded or streamed content will never be able to compete with older formats. Shelf presence! As someone with something of a collector's mentality, this: » 12/18/14 1:18pm 12/18/14 1:18pm

What Star Trek Next Generation episode would be best for a five or six…

This year (for Halloween, maybe) my nephew will be Spider-man, Green Lantern, Iron Man, a swamp monster, a monster without a face, a vampire, a mummy, Buzz Lightyear, and/or a space alien. Also, he could be Batman (if we get him a mask) or a Giant Demon Big Headz. And, he could be a Starfleet officer, but he doesn't… » 10/03/14 9:58pm 10/03/14 9:58pm

'Star Trek Into Darkness' full bloopers gag reel

Watch it before the uploader gets a takedown notice. Paramount uploaded official HD versions but not the complete reel. Not as funny as the 1st movie reel, but still good for some LOLs. » 9/10/14 7:19pm 9/10/14 7:19pm

Sunday Musings - Why is this the Starfleet badge?
