Making a case for LIFE after ALIEN
Imagination Connoisseur, S’wak Props, thinks Ridley Scott could have done much better when it came to making a sequel to his 1979 sci-fi/horror classic, ALIEN. Instead of Scott’s ALIEN COVENANT, S’wak recommends you check out Daniel Espinosa’s LIFE which includes Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds among others in the cast.
‘Strange New Worlds’ is a strange, new Star Trek – but at least it’s trying.
Imagination Connoisseur, S’wak Props, may not be wild about STAR TREK: Strange New Worlds, but there are some small things he likes. Could this be the nu-Trek that finally satisfies all the fans?
STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER may be the best “bad” Star Trek feature film.
Imagination Connoisseur, S’wak Props, thinks that while STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER may not be the “best” Star Trek feature film ever made … it’s no longer the worst. Not by a long shot. Find out why the “black sheep” of the ST motion picture “flock” holds a special place in S’wak’s heart.
Moon Knight was fun, but flawed.
Imagination Connoisseur, Rick Whiting, provides his review of the streaming series, ‘Moon Knight’ which ran on Disney+ in April. While the show was fun, there are a few things Rick would have preferred to see that would have kept the series much closer to the comics that served as its source material.
Don’t miss this year’s definitive “multiverse” movie.
Imagination Connoisseur, S’wak Props, shares his review of a film he thinks does a terrific job at explaining the concept of a “multiverse” … and while his recommendation might surprise you, it’s not all that strange (pun intended).
The “Director’s Edition” was the first time this fan saw STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE
Despite being a life-long fan of Star Trek, Imagination Connoisseur, Bruce Haims, had never seen STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE until he popped the new, 4K “Director’s Edition” into his player and watched it for the very first time.
Robert Wise’s ‘Director’s Edition’ finally finishes STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE
Imagination Connoisseur, Donny Pearson, explains why the ‘Director’s Edition’ of STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE is superior to the original theatrical cut.
So good, it’s bad – the cinematic universe of Ed Wood
Was legendary B-movie director Ed Wood a visionary auteur or an eccentric hack? Imagination Connoisseur, Mark McKeown, gives us a deep look into Wood’s subversive filmography and teases out some facts and features that make the case for wider respect and recognition of the filmmaker today.
Living life in hell on Earth
Christopher Williams, an Imagination Connoisseur from Chicago, says he’s been living life in hell … on the south side of Chicago. Christopher offers a stark look at the double standards for rich and poor, from the poor’s perspective.
TREKKIES 2 continues to explore the strange, new world of Star Trek fandom.
Imagination Connoisseur, Pedro Ferreira, provides his run-down and evaluation of the sequel to the immensely popular film about Star Trek fans, TREKKIES. And in this film (TREKKIES 2), documentary filmmaker Roger Nygard takes his exploration of the Trek phenomenon worldwide. Is it a journey worth taking? You’ll need to check in with Pedro to find out.
TREKKIES boldly goes where no Star Trek documentary has gone before.
Imagination Connoisseur, Pedro Ferreira, reviews and evaluates the original documentary about Star Trek fans, 1997’s TREKKIES. Documentary filmmaker and “Trex-pert”, Roger Nygard, gives non-Trekkies an up-close-and-personal look at what is, quite possibly, the world’s most devout sci-fi fandom.
Mr. Robot may be one of the best TV shows of this generation.
Imagination Connoisseur, Anish, writes in to express his admiration for the stories, characters, and production craftsmanship invested into every episode of ‘Mr. Robot.’ In his review, he says it may very well be the best show on television and it’s hard to disagree.
“Take DRIVE MY CAR out for a spin, it’s worth the time.”
Imagination Connoisseur, Cousin Neil, provides a rave review of Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s DRIVE MY CAR. A break from the comic book/action fare of the last few years, the 3-hour film takes the audience on an unexpected journey through the human experience – and leaves them thinking about the film for days after viewing.
Tired of waiting on 007? Maybe you have time for a little Velvet.
Imagination Connoisseur, Omar, has written in with a recommendation for an ultimate spy thriller that will keep you busy until 007 finally makes his next appearance. ‘Velvet’ is produced by the dynamite team of Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting – and it’s a “can’t miss” (which is pretty important in the spy-game).
THE STAND needs to sit down and shut up.
Imagination Connoisseur, Paul in Long Beach, wrote in to express his outrage over what has been done with Stephen King’s opus work, THE STAND. Like usual, Paul has more than a few thoughts about how well-established characters in King’s book have been drastically changed for no good reason.
