I'll look for that old post you made with all the montage links.
Time to log in to MI6!
Uh, Doc. I don't think you want to do that..
Welcome to MI6 Community, you new source for all things Bond.
AAAAAAAAHHHH! WHAT THE F...
"Hey guys. Like the new site I cooked up? The old one was boring and talky, and like classical music. I wanted the new one to be like rock 'n roll."
"I've got a new creation! It's called MI6 Community!"
< i > < /i > for Italics.
It's past midnight where I am, I can't be expected to come up with good posts, okay?
zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...snort What...what just happened?
Or is that Tubes' doing?
"Ah, nothing like a good reset."
Anyway let's cut to the chase
As I understand there may be one or two who have an interest in Star Trek, by that I mean primarily the original series with Shatner, Nimoy and Kelley. As far as I am aware there is no duplicate thread or any such thing. The next generation with Patrick Stewart is good, but I've always prefered the original. Yesterday I got the opportunity to but the entire film franchise from 1979-1991 in one scoop, saw the Motion Picture and Wrath of Khan in one go, and actually have Star Trek III on now, The Search For Spock (1984), it's not very good admittedly
Going to watch the last one with the original cast (Part 6, The Undiscovered Country) in a few days, haven't seen this one for years and it's supposed to be one of the best of the series so looking forward to it
The Wrath of Khan (Part 2) I feel is the best, in no small part to the wonderful and superlative Ricardo Montalban, without him I don't think the movie would of been the success it was
I also watched the original series in the 1960s, the Motion picture (1979) was only released 10 years after it had finished, and some of the actors don't look that much different actually, James Doohan could of done without the moustache though, it just doesn't suit him
Anyone who has seen the six Star Trek movies with the original cast or even any of them at all this could well be your platform as I'd like to hear about it. Even the next Generation or Original series would be worth a mention. I don't hold Star Trek in the same high regard as James Bond but needless to say I'm a bit of a fan and am certainly no novice in this specific area, they are always worth a watch
The Search For Spock has just ended and the end credits are rolling as we speak
This was a letdown, they gave us a whole movie to search for a character and it's like the Bond equivalent of Goldfinger in that it's rather dull and uninspiring
It's a double feature so Part IV on next, The Voyage Home, I will not be watching, you thought this was bad, next they go to San Francisco to hunt for whales, what the thump does that have to do with anything :-w
It does pick up in Parts 5 and 6 though
Best bit about Star Trek III was the self destruct of the Enterprise, 'Doc Brown' from Back to the Future plays the part of main vulcan. There is no starship enterprise in Star Trek IV, they steal a bird of prey vessel and it simply doesn't work, neither does having main characters such as Leonard Nimoy or Bill Shatner in the directors chair for Star Trek movies
Loved the original first movie that contained some pure unadulterated starship porn. The Genesis- trilogy is excellent and the characters all get their moment in the spotlight. Of course the Enterprise-three (Kirk, Spock & McCoy) get most screentime.
ST 5 has a great beginning but the ending is a bit baffeling, one movie running out of ideas or special effects money.
ST6 is once more an excellent adventure that gives us a great farewell to all of the Enterprise crew.
ST7 is a poor effort even SHatner couldn't save that piece of gorram space rubbish.
Klingon, mate. Klingon. ;)
Worth noting for that Star Trek 6 (1991), The last film with the original cast, most of the original crew wanted to stay on and do another picture, but Nimoy and Shatner had simply had enough, even though Kirk, Scotty and Chekov do appear in the next release with the Next Generations crew
They gave us six official entries after the original series finished, and while not all of Oscar winning standard, they did have the original crew which is all that matters sometimes, even if the releases are poor
I saw The Motion picture yesterday for the first time in years and many people hate it, can't quite understand why as I quite enjoyed it, I even saw it on it's original release so showing my age maybe
