Be sure to get some culture. Theater being performed in the park is good culture. No, not Shakespeare, it’s better! Enjoy Star Trek in the Park, as a local troupe has adapted original Trek episodes into theatrical performances. Finally, a reason to go to Oregon!
Formerly Incredible and formerly the non-acting version of the Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno is back with a new film! The old timer, still in far better shape than I’ve ever been in, plays a secret agent type dude who is also apparently a super hero, The Liberator. The trailer speaks volumes, but I understand very little of it. The film also features Ed Asner as “The President” (there’s a scary thought), Don “the Non-Ricky Steamboat Dragon” Wilson, former basic cable La Femme Nakita Peta (no, not the animal worshipping kind of Peta) Wilson, and Worf! Yes, Michael Dorn sans makeup even has a role.
One question: Where’s the Stan Lee cameo? They really dropped the ball on that one! (continue reading…)
I’m glad to see Q back in Bond, someone needs to make Daniel Craig laugh and give him an exploding cigar. No offense to Whishaw, whoever he is, but there’s one person who should play Q: John de Lancie! (continue reading…)
- J.J. Abrams signed on to direct Star Trek 2. (Yea! Loved the Trek reboot, and Abrams’ influence all but guarantees awesomeness. Naveen Andrews for Khan makes it official!)
- Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme signed for Expendables 2. (Dampening the enthusiasm somewhat: The article does state they’re trying to get Nicolas Cage — garrrrrrrrr!!!!!)
Daniel, don’t bring a Turkey to a bad fight scene fight. Brian, that handicap accessible kung fu is far too fast paced to compete with my entry. Yes, as the screen shot hints, I give you William Shatner vs. The Gorn from the original Star Trek. Good luck topping this, if you will: (continue reading…)
A really good movie, but plenty of cheese for the Rifftrax crew:
355 days ago, Brian posted that Nerd Magnet Leonard Nimoy had retired from acting. Now, it’s been rumored that Leonard Nimoy will be providing the voice of Smaug in the upcoming prequels to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Hobbit Part 1 & 2.
As a childhood sufferer of the condition known as “Trekkieness,” admirer of the 2009 Trek reboot (featuring Nimoy reprising his Mr. Spock role), and a fan of Tolkein/Lord of the Rings, I have to say this almost breaks the coolmeter. (Incidentally, you ask how I got cured of being a Trekkie? I had a Trekkieotomy, of course.) What better way to celebrate than with Leonard Nimoy’s musical homage to the Hobbit, the BALLAD OF BILBO BAGGINS!? (continue reading…)
Editors Note: We at Snark, Critic & Pop do not want to give our readers the impression that we “read books” or that we have “basic levels or literacy” and hope that an article which mentions a book is not interpreted as an attempt to appear hoity toity.
The disappointing thing about this Zombies at a Star Trek convention, pop culture mash-up trailer is that it’s for a book, not an actual movie. (The book is here, for those interested.) Were it a movie, we’d be there opening night:
It’s installment # 3 of my Top 20 Favorite Film Countdown, back as promised inspite of angry protests outside SnarkCriticPop’s HQ. No one is angry about the list, they just mistook the building as relating to the G20 Summit in Toronto, Canada. We’re in Charlotte, NC, so it’s a pretty common mistake. Go see 20-16 here, and 15-11 here. Here we go:
I grew up a Trekkie, watching the original series, the Next Generation TV show, the first batch of movies, but late 90s the franchise became pretty pathetic (see: Star Trek: Voyager & Enterprise). The 2009 reboot, Star Trek, reignited my fondness for the characters and the universe. It’s a superb movie that stretches the fine line between reverence for what came before coupled with the desire to do something new and exciting. The device to take familiar characters Kirk, Spock, McCoy, etc. and introduce them in a fresh way was well done. And the film clicks on every level; the cast is pitch perfect both in terms of homage to their predecessors and for the new ensemble. Star Trek is fast-paced, exciting, funny, and you don’t know what’s coming next. (continue reading…)
