William Shatner Presents: Chaos On The Bridge review

17 August 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

William Shatner presents a new documentary going behind the scenes on the early tumultuous years of Star Trek: The Next Generation...

The revival of Star Trek in the late 1980s ultimately proved so popular that it’s strange to think it was almost sunk by infighting and internal politics between those who most desperately wanted to see it succeed. And yet, that’s what happened. You don’t have to be a particularly keen fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation to notice that the earliest two seasons are ropey and inconsistent. In many ways, it’s surprising that they got made at all.

This is the stance taken by William Shatner’s latest Star Trek documentary, entitled Chaos On The Bridge, which examines the tumultuous early years of Tng and the circumstances surrounding its creation. It’s been more than 25 years since Star Trek: The Next Generation went into production, »

William Shatner interview: Chaos On The Bridge, Star Trek

16 August 2015 2:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, chats to us about his Star Trek: The Next Generation documentary, Chaos On The Bridge...

William Shatner Presents: Chaos On The Bridge is a documentary covering the tumultuous early years of Star Trek: The Next Generation, as told by the writers and producers who worked on it. Written, produced and directed by William Shatner, the 60-minute film has recently been made available worldwide for the first time following a limited release last year, so we took a moment to sit down to talk with the man himself and find out what the story behind it really is.

So, the documentary is essentially the story of how Gene Roddenberry passed the Star Trek torch - or possibly had it wrested from him - during the first few years of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The first thing I'd like to ask is how you remember Gene, »

Was Captain Kirk a Republican? Shatner Says Nope

26 July 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Speaking with the New York Times last week, Ted Cruz went on a brief digression about Star Trek, opining that William Shatner’s Captain Kirk is better than Patrick Stewart’s Captain Picard because Kirk is, in Cruz's mind, a Republican. He cited Kirk’s purported working-class background as proof for his proclamation, calling Picard a “cerebral philosopher” (as opposed to those non-cerebral philosophers). Cruz's preference for Kirk probably has nothing at all to do with Sir Patrick Stewart's open support of gay rights and his amazing, life-affirming bromance with Sir Ian McKellen.William Shatner doesn’t agree. Shatner, surely the world's foremost expert on all things Captain Kirk, posted on Twitter: “Star Trek wasn’t political. I’m not political; I can’t even vote in the Us. So to put a geocentric label on interstellar characters is silly.” Of course, the late Gene Roddenberry might have disagreed »

William Shatner thinks 'Star Trek' wasn't political, has obviously never watched 'Star Trek'

24 July 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Part of the reason people love Star Trek is because it gives viewers hope for a better tomorrow. One where humanity has finally shed all the petty biases and prejudices* that hold us back, and then it reaches for the stars to teach others about tolerance. Hell, part of the Trek vs. Wars argument usually involves Trekkies saying it’s the superior series because it deals with hard science and socio-political issues. *Or at least society gives the appearance of utopia. Plenty of Trek episodes have dealt with the darker side of cultural bias bubbling just under the surface. Which is why the Internet finds itself scratching its head when Captain Kirk made a bold statement. Star Trek wasn't political. I'm not political; I can't even vote in the Us. So to put a geocentric label on interstellar characters is silly — William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) July 23, 2015 This is confusing because science-fiction and politics are inextricably linked, »

Comic Book Review – Star Trek: New Visions – “1971/4860.2″

8 July 2015 3:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Star Trek: New Visions – “1971/4860.2″…

Captain Kirk sets off alone on a mission that will carry him 200 years into his past… but he won’t be alone for long—Gary Seven returns!

In this issue of New Visions John Byrne returns to material which as I child I can clearly recall not overly enjoying.  The episode in question was, “Assignment: Earth” and I remember not being a fan due to the feeling – even at the small age – that this wasn’t my usual Star Trek and everybody seemed to be playing second fiddle to the man in the suit.  It was only years later did I discover that Assignment: Earth was an attempted spin off/pilot from Gene Roddenberry and it all became clear to me why I didn’t like it – I was being sold another product in my show.  Now when I read that Mr. Byrne »

Bad Ideas: Films We’re Glad Never Got Made

4 July 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While we often lament some of the films that end up stuck in development Hell, never to become realized on the big screen, there are some films we should all be glad never came to fruition.  

Sometimes they don’t get it! We all know that the film industry is a business and they want to make money, but Hollywood doesn’t always realize that the best way to do that is to make a good film. Sometimes, Hollywood’s habit of taking a known property and stretching them out to absurd proportions proves that they just don’t get the point. Fortunately, there are times when someone recognizes a bad idea and puts on the brakes. Below is a list of 14 films where someone was smart enough to notice that they were making a pile of trash and threw in the towel.

Star Trek: 27 geeky things about the Jj Abrams films

25 June 2015 2:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here are more nerdy spots in the final two Trek films to date: Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness...

Spoilers for Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness lie ahead.

Like their forerunners, the two latest Star Trek films, in their semi-rebooted, alternative universe, are replete with famous faces from outside the franchise, surprising cameos and multiple little touches that raise a smile.

With the third film in the rebooted series coming next year, the 50th anniversary of the debut of Star Trek on TV in 1966, let's take a look at a few of the geeky nods in Jj's Trek films.

1. Star Trek Nemesis left a lot of dangling threads, on purpose, as a story treatment for a direct sequel was already being worked on. Unfortunately due to some less than stellar decisions by executives, the release date of the film was repositioned and the decision was made to »

Mindy Newell: These Are The Voyages…

16 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

“Don’t screw this up.”

Admiral Maxwell Forrest, Starfleet Command, to Captain Jonathan Archer • “Broken Bow” • Episode 1, Season 1, Enterprise

As I mentioned in last week’s column (Oh Boy), Scott Bakula also starred as Captain Jonathan Archer on Enterprise, which ran on the Upn network from September 2001 to May 2005, a total of four years. That’s one more year than Tos’s run, but three years shorter than its successful progenitors, Next Gen, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager.

Upn claimed that poor ratings caused Enterprise’s downfall; according to Wikipedia, it never rose above the Top 100 rank in the Neilson ratings system, debuting at #115, and continuing to sink until its final season, where it landed at #148. It’s generally perceived as a failure, and has been blamed for the lack of any Star Trek on either television or movie screens until J.J. Abrams’s 2009 film reboot of the franchise.

The definitive Top 25 TV kisses of all time from Ross and Rachel to Sheldon and Amy: 10-1

12 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Yesterday we began our countdown of the best ever TV kisses after an office vote, including the likes of The X-Files, Dawson's Creek and Cheers.

Today, we conclude our poll to find the ultimate TV kiss, and please vote in our poll to select your own choice. If your favourite hasn't made the cut, please leave us a comment below.

The definitive Top 25 TV kisses of all time: 25-11

10. Kirk and Uhura in Star Trek

Sure, it's not the long, drawn-out payoff of a will-they-won't-they sitcom, and you'd be hard pushed to find a less romantic kiss on this list, but for what it represents in the wider cultural history of 1960s America and the extraordinary story behind the day of the shoot, it's hard to beat Captain Kirk and Uhura's iconic Star Trek smooch. As one of the first interracial kisses on national television - and certainly the most »

David Reviews Robert Wise’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture

1 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Let’s get the obvious question out of the way: why in the world is Criterion Cast posting a review of Star Trek: The Motion Picture? The film was released in the late Seventies, no new version has been recently issued on either Blu-ray or in a new theatrical run, and while it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility for this site to take a look at mainstream big budget productions aimed at the mass audience, it’s also pretty obvious that St:tmp isn’t the sort of movie that fits all that comfortably alongside the foreign, independent and alternative cinematic expressions that typically draw our critical attention.

The reason I’m posting this review here is that I agreed to participate in the 2015 White Elephant Blogathon, a project organized by Philip Tatler in which he solicits nominations from a couple dozen movie bloggers for offbeat films »

Simon Pegg Says Paramount Worried Original Star Trek Beyond Draft Was “Too Star Trek-y”

20 May 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Simon Pegg won the hearts and minds of nerds long ago, but the Shaun of the Dead actor keeps racking up impressive achievements that keep him at the epicenter of everything geeky in Hollywood. Currently, the actor is co-writing the script for Star Trek 3 (believed to be titled Star Trek Beyond), in which he’ll also reprise the role of Scotty, and trying to strike a balance between the more commercial feel of J.J. Abrams’ big-screen predecessors (2009’s Star Trek and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness) with the more adventurous tone of the original series.

Speaking with Radio Times, Pegg revealed that it hasn’t been easy getting the script right for the threequel. Before he came aboard, Paramount had some odd concerns with Roberto Orci’s treatment for the film (last year, the producer had convinced the studio to let him direct the pic on the condition that »

What films should be expanded into shared universes?

14 May 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shared universes are big business right now, and here are seven franchises that could, and should be expanded...

It's likely that by the time you finish reading this sentence a new cinematic universe will have been born. In fact, it may be one of the cinematic universes I propose later in this article. If that's the case, I apologise for my obsolescence. Furthermore, if you're reading this in the future and any of my proposed cinematic universes have come to pass and turned out awful, I also apologise.

Just know that I'm sorry, and I've a feeling that many of us are going to be sorry and that the film industry could be in a sorry and confusing mess in five years time thanks to 'Cinematic Universe Fever' (a real affliction, and currently a very common complaint on the casebooks of doctors and private physicians in Hollywood).
