It’s a double sci-fi feature! “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” wraps up our series of films directed by Robert Wise. A movie that was mired in delays and controversy from the very beginning, we feel that Robert Wise’s signature touches are missing from the film and we both want to get our hands on the Director’s Cut to see what this film may have been intended to be in the director’s original vision.
“Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan” on the other hand, wow! This is an explosive, action packed and surprisingly deep film directed by Nicolas Meyer.
We go into the details, and probably miss a ton of interesting facts, but in the end we enjoyed both films.
Up next is the “Yokai Monsters: Spook Warfare” the first in a trilogy of films from Japan dealing with the mythical Yokai, spirits and demons that live in Japan and haunt the forests, rivers, fields, cemeteries, and homes of the local people. In the case of this movie, they are also protectors of Japan!
Clips from the “behind the scenes” interviews from the DVDs are included to give some background and information directly from folks that worked on the film.
