Quote from: San Antone on March 26, 2023, 09:43:12 AMI bought the blu-ray ten movie collection of the Star Trek movies and will watch them all. I will be interested in my response, since as a Star Trek fan, if they will "hold up" or if I will be similarly underwhelmed. My wife refuses to watch The Wrath of Khan - finding Ricardo Montelban, as Khan, and the eel implants not what she wishes to see again. I guess I will be solo for that one.
Quote from: relm1 on March 26, 2023, 04:43:47 PMI am going to say something controversial here. I LOVE TMP. I don't feel it is far from the flavor of the original series but embodies some of its qualities. There is really nothing in Star Trek with so much a sense of the unknown as this which is 90% of the story.
QuoteDid you get the recent remastering of TMP from 2022?
Quote from: DavidW on March 26, 2023, 11:09:40 AMIn particular, the next gen movies are truly dreadful.
Quote from: San Antone on March 26, 2023, 06:21:13 PMI watched The Wrath of Khan tonight and really enjoyed it. More action, more story, more relationships - IOW everything a good movie ought to deliver. Can't wait to move on to the next one.I don't think so. This ten movie set came out in 2020.

Quote from: relm1 on March 27, 2023, 04:37:15 PMIs what makes the ST formula so special how it is a community of misfits?
Quote from: Karl Henning on March 27, 2023, 07:23:08 PMEither I misunderstand you or misfits isn't the right word.
Quote from: relm1 on March 28, 2023, 05:55:43 AMI don't remember why I choose that word. Maybe how spock was half human/vulcan so not quite a fit in either society. Bones an old country doctor in space, a russian during the cold war, etc. In contrast, not so interesting if they were all from the same society like Forbidden Planet. I don't know what I was trying to say.

Quote from: Karl Henning on April 13, 2023, 02:46:35 PMProbably the only time I've seen Malcolm MacDowell outside of A Clockwork Orange.
Quote from: VonStupp on April 13, 2023, 03:32:45 PMIf your library has it, it might worth seeing Time After Time. MacDowell plays HG Wells and Star Trek regular David Warner plays Jack the Ripper.VS
Quote from: Karl Henning on April 13, 2023, 02:46:35 PMSeeing that @Old San Antone enjoyed Star Trek: Generations made me realize that there is no need to let the scruples of this or that critic prevent me from enjoying the movie, myself. I couldn't help feeling a slight pang upon learning that there would be no Spock, Bones or Uhura, but in the first place, the story was strong, and in the second, to some degree Scotty and Chekov seemed squeezed in (glad as I was to see 'em.) I entirely enjoyed Shatner (he was quite well-behaved.) I'm even less sure how I feel about "emo Data" than I was about "emo Data" in First Contact. Good use of Guinan, I thought. Great use of Geordi's visor. Enjoyed the movie entirely. Probably the only time I've seen Malcolm MacDowell outside of A Clockwork Orange.
