The first canonical interaction with the (unnamed) Ferengi is a fairly straightforward “they’ve taken over the ship!” episode, but at least it does what it can to erase the abysmal introduction of Ferengi in TNG’s The Last Outpost.
Also: it is really hammered home just how BLUE the underwear on Enterprise is.
No one understands this movie but me.
Wait, let me restate that, because I don’t exactly *understand* this movie. That’s ’cause it doesn’t make sense. It doesn’t try to make sense. But why does everything have to make sense? You want something to make sense, go watch an episode of Law and Order.
The Box collides a simple logline with a vast, unseen conspiracy of crazy and shoots it all in a way that is so pompous it can’t be anything but true genius.
I liked this movie a lot the first time (read my UGO review) but this second time I really loved it.
Good, stupid fun. See it in 2D.
Here’s my UGO review, that you should go now and read.
For those that accuse me of liking everything (especially if it is expanded universe Trek) please remember this post. This comic sucks.
It’s like a Scooby Doo episode set on DS9. Hell, it isn’t even Scooby Doo. It’s a lesser Hanna-Barbara cartoon. The only good think about it is Elim Garak’s face on the cover of issue #4.
Geoff Johns’ (relatively) recent relaunch begins with a good blend of humor as some Golden Age favorites (Green Lantern, the Flash and Wildcat) meets up with youngsters like the new Power Girl (and her gazongas) and the ridiculous Mr. Terrific who likes Fair Play. There’s also a nice little mystery pushing the story forward. I’ll probably follow up with the next in this series.
Alan Moore’s spin-off of Top 10 is one of the funniest and best comics I’ve ever read. There are more nerdy obscure references per panel in this book than anything else out there. If Top 10 celebrated a love of sci-fi, Smax is lovable goof on fantasy and D&D. Anyone who’s ever rolled a 20-sided die (even if it was 20 years ago, like me) will get a kick out of this.
A collection of Dr. Strange’s tangles with Dracula. Really trippy imagery and, heck, some fun stories, too. Manservant Wong comes back from the dead, plus there’s a final team-up with Blade and Hannibal King.
If you’ve never sunk your teeth into any 1970s Doctor Strange, this is a good book to check out. Yeah, I’m being serious.
