A Quick Look At Some of The Most Memorable Movie Memorabilia

The role that film plays in society and the impact it has had on wider popular culture over the last century or so is almost possible to overstate. A rather telling example of this comes in the form of a study done by VisitBritain, which estimates that in 2001, approximately 20% of the 23 million visitors to the UK did so simply because of the way the country has been portrayed on television and film. If this isn’t enough to convince you of the indelible impact that the film industry has on our lives then you need to look no further than the rise in collection of movie memorabilia over the last 25 years or so.

Star Trek Beyond: A hyperactive Mess That Tries Hard & Fails to Deliver [Review]

Star Trek Beyond: A hyperactive Mess That Tries Hard & Fails to Deliver [Review]

I think I might be done with Star Trek.  The reboot universe just isn’t doing it for me, despite the beautiful homoerotic undertones of new Kirk’s relationship with new Spock.   If you’re a fan of the series, particularly the new series, you might want read some other review.  Even Rotten Tomatoes liked this film more than I did.   Star Trek Beyond is a hyperactive mess, it tries so hard and  comes so close and then steadfastly fails to deliver.  There were many many good elements, small things done well, even big things done well, but none of it came together as a whole.   There’s gonna be mild spoilers in this review but nothing you can’t get from just watching the trailer.
