At one end of the SF animation scale there's the state of the art: Avatar.

And then there's episode 1 of the 1973 Star Trek animated series "More tribbles, more troubles". William Shatner doesn't make a very convincing animated figure.

I am now the proud owner of the 2 disc edition of Star Trek (2009). Director's (et al) commentary was very good*, as was the gag reel. Much Trek yet to come yet.

(*) None of this "Let's just enjoy this scene... [long pause]... [toilet flush]. Oh this actress was marvellous" crap, although you really need everyone in the same room at the same time.

And so we come to the end of the ST schedule with Star Trek: Nemesis. Actually, saw it yesterday but have had laptop trauma which has delayed the report. This will be brief. Maybe.

After something of a delay we've resumed the Trek-fest with Star Trek: Insurrection. I *distinctly* remembered seeing this in the cinema; crushing disappointment on that scale is something that tends to stick in the mind.

Somewhere along the line I lost track of my Trek, so it was a pleasant surprise to rediscover Star Trek: First Contact as one of the better films of the TNG franchise.

It's an old saw that only the even-numbered Star Trek films are any good. It's certainly a rollercoaster ride when you see them in quick succession. Read more... )

Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

This is bad in ways I find difficult to articulate. Nope. I got nothing.

High point: "Please Captain, not in front of the Klingons."

OK, Let's give this a go. )

Thanks to a power outage and leaking roof at Husband's bass student's house, a rest day for le Tour, and the unforgivable absence of Top Gear from SBS, we found ourselves watching yet more Trek this evening.

Otherwise known as ST 2.5: The Epilogue. I'm glad we saw this within a day of ST II, for it's not much more than an afterword to WoK.

Sundry thoughts )

That's more like it! ST II looked and felt much more like a ST movie than a desperate overfunded scriptless mishmash of shots. Shatner still reasonably trim, but the wig now has a perm that is quite terrifying. No Space Bikinis* :-( but it was fun.

enter at your own risk, I'm not in charge here! )

So, we did it: watched all ST:TOS and special features provided with the DVD set. The Season 3 doccos were almost as depressing as some of the episodes. Tonight we started on the movie franchise. Thank god for low expectations.

And yet, at this time and space and with preparation, I liked it.

Like an indoor potplant I seek the sun, but sometimes have limited capabilities of movement. Husband rescued me today and took me for a drive. We usually go directly to the coast and park just south of Hillarys, but today we went a little further.

Have now seen the Star Trek:TOS S3 episode "The Way to Eden". Husband was concerned that no-one was credited with the songwriting. I was concerned that I may throw up.

I have just emerged from the funk that was the ST:TOS episode "Spock's Brain". Some say it's the worst episode ever. I haven't seen them all (in recent memory), so logic dictates that I am not qualified to comment on this assessment.

Last night I had a plan to kick start my brain this morning to match the physical progress: coffee. Coffee also equals 'location other than home' which is a Good Thing. I was tempted to have my coffee at the zoo, but since I wanted to also attempt work-like activity I settled for the coffee and sandwich shop (it can't be called a cafe) in the middle of my small local shopping centre. And ye gods it worked a charm!

I must really like my butcher. )
