Hamilton

Directed by Thomas Kail. With Lin-Manuel Miranda, Phillipa Soo, Leslie Odom Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry. The real life of one of America’s foremost founding fathers and first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Filmed live on Broadway from the Richard Rodgers Theatre with the original Broadway cast. I only made it to the intermission before I gave up, I actually sighed a breath of relief when it faded to black, thinking it was finally over, but nope, that’s only the half way point! There’s a good story here, but it’s buried under cringy virtue signalling, bad rapping and women wearing...

Dune

Before The Matrix, before Star Wars, before Ender’s Game and Neuromancer, there was Dune: winner of the prestigious Hugo and Nebula awards, and widely considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Melange, or ‘spice’, is the most valuable – and rarest – element in the universe; a drug that does everything from increasing a person’s life-span to making intersteller travel possible. And it can only be found on a single planet: the inhospitable desert world Arrakis. Whoever controls Arrakis controls the spice. And whoever controls the spice controls the universe. When the Emperor transfers stewardship of Arrakis...

Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection #152 U.S.S. Excelsior Prototype Mk I

The U.S.S. Excelsior Prototype Mk I starship has painstakingly been recreated in die-cast with extraordinary attention to detail capturing the details of the ship. Originally designed for STAR TREK… A strange looking model that apparently did have a brief moment on screen during the Wolf 359 destruction, this was a contender for the Excelsior used in Star Trek 3. Happily it wasn’t used though and instead we got a ship with ample nacelles and a thicc undercarriage. This magazine has a 6 page interview from 2002 with Leonard Nimoy, director of Star Trek 3 Buy On Amazon!

Marooned

Directed by John Sturges. With Gregory Peck, Richard Crenna, David Janssen, James Franciscus. Three American astronauts are stranded in space when their retros won’t fire. Can they be rescued before their oxygen runs out? It took me forever to find a copy of this film, which really isn’t all that notable or memorable except for the fact that it came out just a few months before the Apollo 13 disaster, and other than a couple minor changes, this is the same story.

V for Vendetta

Directed by James McTeigue. With Hugo Weaving, Natalie Portman, Rupert Graves, Stephen Rea. In a future British tyranny, a shadowy freedom fighter, known only by the alias of “V”, plots to overthrow it with the help of a young woman. The role that put Natalie Portman in the “I shaved my head for this?” actress category, this is the movie that sold a million masks to impressionable teens who thought they were making a deep political statement by buying into the corporate movie tie in. I thought about buying one at one point, but I didn’t want to be associated...

Devs

Created by Alex Garland. With Sonoya Mizuno, Nick Offerman, Jin Ha, Cailee Spaeny. A computer engineer investigates the secretive development division in her company, which she believes is behind the disappearance of her boyfriend. It took me the better part of a month to get through the few episodes that the story has, it’s a very slow and deliberate show, with some big questions about what reality is. There’s action every couple episodes, but whew man this is not a show to watch whilst hungover or sleepy. Buy On Amazon!

Star Trek: Ships of the Line

They dared to risk it all in a skiff of reeds or leather, on a ship of wood or steel, knowing the only thing between them and certain death was their ship. It’s an art book, so it’s a quick ‘read’. Some of the pieces seem nearly amateur, but I recognize some pretty big names mixed in with those, so I’m not entire sure what they were going for. This is actually the second copy of this book that I’ve owned, the first one was purchased via ebay and the binding had completely ripped out the pages of the book,...

Sonic the Hedgehog

Directed by Jeff Fowler. With Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter. After discovering a small, blue, fast hedgehog, a small-town police officer must help him defeat an evil genius who wants to do experiments on him. Found it on sale for just $2, so hell yeah I watched it again! It’s still the same heartfelt love letter to active nostalgia that it was a few months ago, only this time it was IN MY HOUSE.
