Saturday Night at the Movies 6/16/12!

Who cares what picture we see?



I would have to assume Judson Scott does, so what better choice than this one?











I have never identified myself as a Trekker, or Trekkie, for that matter. But I do own every episode of every Trek series, most of the paperback books, and all of the movies on Blu-Ray, so I guess I am one, huh? And it's high time this blog shows some Trek love!

 I saw this in the theater in 1982 - and while I liked Star Trek: The Motion Picture three years previously, I loved this movie.


I mean, you've got all the original crew - plus fun actors like Paul Winfield, Bibi Besch, Merritt Butrick, and Kirstie Alley; then you top it off with Ricardo Montalban as the greatest Star Trek villain of all - Khan, returning from the original series to go after Kirk one more time fifteen years after the events of the episode "Space Seed." What's not to love?

KHAAAAAANNNNNNNN!!!!!!



And you could be watching it with me on that Blu-Ray as soon as tonight! If you want to come to my house, that is!



Until next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!

  1. Any time a sci-fi movie quotes Moby Dick, I'm in!

    1. Especially in that velvety Spanish accent - like so much rich Corinthian leather...

  2. There are no words for how much I love Wrath of Khan. Ricardo Montalban was pure awesomeness and his performance was outstanding. I still boo boo my eyes out when Spock dies. It is just gut-wrenching. Wish I could have joined you for this one.

    1. It's always available - and we'll pencil it in for the Imaginarium/LGOOH Film Festival for sure! "THERE she is!"
