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.

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.

There’s gonna be mild spoilers in this review but nothing you can’t get from just watching the trailer. Read more

[Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo 2016] During Karl Urban’s panel at this past weekend’s annual CCEE16, the Star Trek Beyond actor teased the upcoming new film and potential death(s) for major characters as well as his excitement for new Dredd and much more.
I’ve mentioned elsewhere that I was a ‘Con newbie. I don’t really know why I never went before and was overwhelmed when I arrived. I’d just gotten out of a great couple of panels and was taking a breather when I realized I was starving. Maybe it was the sight of Keven’s poutine or maybe it was the many cups of free coffee (they had free coffee!) that I’d had, but I needed to eat right away. Luckily there was a food truck right outside with practically no line-up.
