Axanar: A new Star Trek Possibility

Before there was James T. Kirk, the early Federation was put to the test in war against the Klingon Empire.  The hero of that conflict was Captain Garth (who later appeared in Star Trek TOS as a crazed ruler in "Who Gods Destroy").

This new fan fiction and crowdfunded effort to bring this new movie project to the big screen is underway.  So far, they have created a terrific background for the film in Prelude to Axanar: The Four Years War.

I am excited to see where this project may go and could lead to powerful war movie based in the Star Trek Universe.

RIP Sir Christopher Lee

Today is a sad day.  Another great actor with a storied career has shrugged off this mortal coil.  Sir Christopher Lee passed away today at the age of 93.  His career was filled with powerful roles and storied accolades.

His most well know for his antagonist roles.  Mr. Lee personified the role of the villain in many films.  He was The Man with the Golden Gun in the James Bond movie.

He was Dracula.

He was the infamous Count Dooku in the Star War prequels.

And lastly he was Saruman in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie trilogies.

I could go on and on about his roles.  He has played Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes.  He played the role of Death and even Lucifer. His range, depth of understanding and presence will be missed in the acting world.  RIP Sir Christopher Lee.  Take a bow and enjoy your rest.  You've earned it.

May the 4th Be With You 2015

Star Wars Day (May 4th) is here again!  Fans have a lot to celebrate with 2 new movies on horizon.  Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the 7th in the series of the saga and Rogue One, chronicles the theft of the original Death Star plans.  I hold high hopes for both these films and with the start of this movies season already in full swing, they should be a great addition.

Official Batman vs Superman Trailer

The next installment of DC Superhero comic book movies is coming. Batman vs Superman is set to be released next year.  As much as I really despised the selection of Ben Affleck as Batman, I am willing to let give him the benefit of the doubt and this new trailer shows a really dark background for this movie.  Perfect for a Dark Knight film and it will be interesting to see how Superman's character will continue to be portrayed after Man of Steel.  This movie is the launch of the new Justice League movies and will contain some good cameos of Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and possibly Flash and Cyborg.  How will Green Lantern be re-introduced?  Let's see if DC can cash in on this one take the next step like Marvel has with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers.

Flash and Arrow Superhero/Supervillain Fight Club

CW's The Flash and Arrow series have been extremely entertaining.  I'm glad they took some time to create an additional bit of humor for to promote the last few episodes of the season for both series.

Only one rule about fight club...we don't talk about fight club...
