Star Trek: Discovery – The Verdict of Ron

I am as torn as I was when I started.  Which I suppose is a credit to the writers and creators of the show.  They changed enough to tweek the hardcore Trekkie side of me, while at the same time,

My Verdict: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I really had to sit on this for a while, because SW TLJ is a very bold movie.  It apparently has divided Star Wars fandom considerably, from the Dragon*Con fanboys down to the casual fans.  I have to respect Rian

Star Trek: The Motion Picture

I watched The Motion Picture again yesterday. It was the first time in a very long time. I was trying to get a better understanding of the disappointment in that movie. I was disappointed but not as viscerally as some

Star Trek Discovery: I am very torn!

I have gone back and forth on this.  I only became a hard core Star Treek fan after I was tutored by my old friend John on what is Star Trek and what is at the heart of the universe.  Why

I am not the only one!

I am sorry to say that I have to agree with this guy 100%.  What i like about this is that it goes beyond the same old complaint of “it’s a rehash of the first movie.”  It was bad for

I want better!

The more and more I think about it, the more and more I  get frustrated with what people and particularly fandom has accepted as “good” movies.  I am not saying that I am the final and end all to be
