Wrath of Khan

Starting on September 10th, in honor of its 35th anniversary, AMC Theaters will be showing The Wrath of Khan on the big screen again.

The running time of the movie is listed at 130 minutes, so it looks like the extended director's cut that was released in June 2016 is what's being shown.

The …

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

I remember the anticipation back in 1979 waiting for Star Trek: The Motion Picture (TMP) to arrive in the cinema and eagerly plonking my ass in a plush red seat to enjoy the movie.

But even me, a die-hard Star Trek fan, was bored with all the Enterprise porn in the movie. The story itself …

Star Trek Beyond - A Review

Thanks to Ronan Healy via Star Trek Eire, I was able to bag a free ticket to the Star Trek Beyond premiere at the Savoy Cinema in Dublin.

It's a long time (actually several years) since I've been in the centre of my home town. It's driver unfriendly and I have no need to …

Star Trek: The Beginning

I can't corroborate this account of how JJ Abrams ended up directing the recent Star Trek films, but this is allegedly what happened. If you know different, sound off in the comments and I'll correct the article as appropriate.

In 2006, CBS and Paramount split into two distinct companies, rather than being two divisions of …

Star Trek Into Darkness

A friend (who shall remain nameless!), who's a Classic Series fan, recently mentioned that he'd finally made time to sit down and watch Star Trek Into Darkness. But I have to admit to being very disappointed when he said he actually enjoyed the movie. Strangely, this felt like a betrayal of everything Star Trek

Here's another article I just posted over at Home Cinema Addict. This one's about the independent fan-fiction production called Axanar which will be filmed later this year. Shooting was originally scheduled for May but has been pushed back till October. The production is being financed by a Kickstarter project. The initial goal was …

Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock

I originally posted this article on Home Cinema Addict but since it's Star Trek related, it seemed fitting to repost it here:

Leonard Nimoy, an icon of Science Fiction died today in Bel-Air, Los Angeles, California, aged 83. He had been suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He revealed he was suffering from the disease …

Star Trek Original Series Collectibles

Star Trek Collectibles have become recognized as highly valuable and every true fan wants to get their hands on the original action figures and collectibles which are still in the original box. But since the release of the 2009 film some collectors are staying away from the new franchise completely …

On April 28th (or the 27th if you live in the UK), Star Trek will appear on Blu-Ray for the first time with the release of the first season of the Original Series.

It's not the first time Star Trek has appeared on high-definition medium. In late 2007, The Original Series was launched on the …

At a time when the Original Series of Star Trek (TOS) had been rerun so many times that prints were hazy, scratched and dull, Paramount/CBS decided it was time to remaster the original series by cleaning up the original master prints, boosting the picture quality and re-recording the background music. Then they decided to go …
