Blu-ray Review: Star Trek: The Animated Series
Empress Eve   |  

Star Trek: The Animated Series Blu-ray Edition box set

Star Trek: The Animated Series
The Animated Adventures of Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek
Blu-ray Edition
Created by Gene Roddenberry
Directed by Hal Sutherland, Bill Reed
Cast: William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Majel Barrett
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release Date: November 15, 2016

When the original Star Trek was cancelled in 1969 after three seasons, it left a void with fans who wanted NBC to renew the television series about the starship Enterprise and its crew’s five-year mission to explore new worlds and new civilizations. Audiences grew to love William Shatner‘s Captain Kirk and his first officer, the half-human half-Vulcan Spock, played by Leonard Nimoy, but the ratings just weren’t high enough after the show was moved for the third season to a Friday night “death” slot. While Star Trek got to live on in syndication, it wasn’t until 1973 that new life was breathed into it with Star Trek: The Animated Series, produced by Filmation, the company behind Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

Book Review: Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years
Empress Eve   |  

Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years hardcover from Titan Books banner

Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years
Hardcover
Foreword by Nicholas Meyer
Publisher: Titan Books
Release Date: September 6, 2016

September 8 will mark the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek television series, the creation of visionary Gene Roddenberry, that saw the crew of the starship Enterprise embark on their 5-year mission to explore strange new worlds, bolding going where no man had gone before. While we technically never saw them complete their mission — the TV series was canceled after three seasons because of low ratings — “Captain Kirk” and “Mr. Spock” have since become household names and the Star Trek franchise has grown massive beyond everyone’s wildest dreams.

In honor of this milestone anniversary, CBS — which currently holds the rights to the franchise — commissioned a series of art in various mediums, the images of which have been collected into a new 112-page full-color oversized hardcover, Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years, from Titan Books.

Blu-ray Review: Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978)

 Invasion of the Body Snatchers Blu-ray Review

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers
Blu-ray (Collector’s Edition)
Director: Philip Kaufman
Screenwriter: W. D. Richter
Cast: Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Leonard Nimoy, Jeff Goldblum, Veronica Cartwright, Art Hindle
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated PG | 115 Minutes
Release Date: August 02, 2016

“There’s nothing to be afraid of. They were right. It’s painless. It’s good. Come. Sleep.”

Remake. Say the word and you’ll no doubt spark a conversation about the death of originality in Hollywood and how brand recognition is more important than storytelling. While it’s easy to throw up half-hearted retreads like Total Recall (2012), RoboCop (2014), and Point Break (2015) as reasons to banish the remake altogether, there are a few great remakes that are arguably better than their predecessors. 1978’s Invasion Of The Body Snatchers kicked off a decade of great remakes, including John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982), Brian De Palma’s Scarface (1983), David Cronenberg’s The Fly (1986), and Chuck Russell’s The Blob (1988).

In Memoriam: Film and TV Entertainers 2015

In Memoriam 2015: Film, Television, Sports, Literature, the Arts

Another year has come to an end. 2015 was full of life in so many vivid ways: creatively, intensely, and tragically, but also wonderfully presenting its own set of challenges and obstacles to overcome in the new year. And as a year also brings, we also lost many shining figures in the entertainment world among other fields.

Here’s a rundown of some of those figures who touched our lives and will continue to touch our lives always as we remember some of the key people in Television and Film, in front of the camera and behind the scenes, people who are legends, pioneers, luminaries, inspirations, and above all, timeless.

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Remembers Leonard Nimoy (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Leonard Nimoy - Mr. Spock

Back in July we found out that Star Trek Beyond, the third entry in the rebooted Star Trek movie franchise, was doing a contest for a chance to win a role in the movie (similar to what former Trek director J.J. Abrams and company did for Star Wars: The Force Awakens) all in the name of charity.

That contest is in its last week, and to make the final stretch special it was decided to dedicate the week to the great Leonard Nimoy, the Star Trek legend who sadly passed away back in February. The contest benefits many charities but in order to honor Nimoy, a charity that he cared deeply for, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is being spotlighted.

A short video was released to announce the news and remember Nimoy, with current Spock actor Zachary Quinto fittingly front and center. You can watch the video below.

Pfeff-Bot   |  

George Takei

Although quite small in comparison to the behemoth San Diego Comic-Con, which was held on the same weekend (July 9-12, 2015), ConnectiCon drew its largest crowd of the weekend for a question and answer panel with George Takei (Star Trek’s Hikaru Sulu).

Entering the Main Events room of the Connecticut Convention Center while doing a double Vulcan Salute on Sunday, July 12th, Takei was received with a standing ovation from throngs of fans. He then smiled and said his classic phrase: “Ohhh my.”
