'Beyond': 'Most Satisfying' Among Rebooted 'Star Trek' Movies, But Gay Sulu a Dramatic Miscalculation

23 July 2016 9:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Star Trek Beyond' with Chris Pine as Captain Kirk: Will movie franchise reboot achieve 'escape velocity'? 'Star Trek Beyond' Review: Movie franchise needs to boldly go where J.J. Abrams has never gone before We're never told what “beyond” refers to in Star Trek Beyond, the 13th film in the venerated sci-fi series. But here's a theory: if the franchise is to regain its footing after the tepid returns of Star Trek Into Darkness, it will have to move beyond J.J. Abrams, the writer/director who used his brand of copycat magic to relaunch the series in 2009. In our reboot era, he's got the canny ability to provide older audiences with enough familiarity to keep them under the tent while giving new audiences enough youthful verve so they don't feel the franchise isn't for them. If you think that's not worth something, see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »

“Star Trek Beyond” is a rare success for the 2016 summer movie season

21 July 2016 12:19 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It hasn’t been a particularly great summer movie season, I think we can all agree with that sentiment. Outside of a small handful of releases, it has been one disappointment after the next. This week, however, things pick up with the emergence of Star Trek Beyond, a sequel that not only manages to improve on what came before it, but really fits in with the entire franchise so far to date. It was very impressive what this film does, without ever really calling attention to itself. I suspect it’s going to be a pretty big hit, and rightly so, as it’s a high quality effort. The sequel picks up a while after the events of Star Trek into Darkness (itself taking place a bit after Star Trek). The crew of the Enterprise, led by Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), is in the middle of a five »

Review: 'Star Trek Beyond' is a terrific 50th anniversary salute to the series appeal

16 July 2016 9:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Star Trek Beyond is, for lack of a better description, the goods. When I walked out of the Jj Abrams reboot in 2009, I was giddy about the potential for the series. I thought they did a terrific job casting the film, and by the time the movie ended, they were set to head out into space on their five year mission, seeking out, boldly going, and it felt like they had wiped the slate clean as storytellers so they weren’t beholden to anything anymore other than the characters. That’s what made Star Trek Into Darkness so confounding. I think there’s great energy to the filmmaking, which I liked when I first saw it, but I’ve never seen a movie more tied in knots to try to trick an audience, and for so little payoff. The moment they decided to make a movie that hinged on Khan as a villain, »

Trailer Trashin’: The Enterprise Crew Returns in the Second Star Trek Beyond Trailer

3 June 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers, and I hope you all had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. We’re in June now, and the summer movie season is chugging along with the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows this weekend. This week’s Trailer Trashin’ column examines the new trailer for another big summer release, Star Trek Beyond.

Premise: The crew of the USS Enterprise, halfway into their five-year mission, is attacked by a seemingly unstoppable wave of unknown aliens, forcing them to abandon ship. Stranded on an unknown planet and with no apparent means of rescue, the crew finds themselves in conflict with a new ruthless enemy who has a hatred of the Federation and everything it stands for.

My take: To put it nicely, when the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond was released in December of last year, it was met with a largely negative response. »

Star Wars: the changing face of Sy Snootles & the Rebo band

In the Special Editions, the Rebo Band were big victims of George Lucas' digital wand. Here's how CGI changed them - seemingly forever...

In 1997, Star Wars began its ineluctable turn to the digital side. A New Hope, re-released in January that year, marked the first of George Lucas’s Special Edition revamps of his blockbuster saga; then 20 years old, the original 70s print was decaying. Effects shots were damaged. Darth Vader’s once imposing black mask and cloak had faded to a wan shade of pale blue.

To combat the ravages of time, Lucas embarked on an expensive and lavish restoration of the movies, improving the quality of the sound, re-balancing and correcting the colours and placing them back where they belonged: on the big screen. While fans were delighted at the prospect of seeing Star Wars in theatres again, Lucas’ reissues didn’t stop at »
