The new trailer for the Star trek 11 is now out. And it looks really great.
It doesn’t start out as your typical star trek, in fact there’s no sign it is star trek until a fair way in.
I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t already seen it so watch it before reading on:
My favourite visual must be the building of the enterprise, that looks great. The new crew even looks like the new crew (except Uhura’s been replaced by a model and Scotty looks like he’s been on a crash diet…).
Some favourite shots below:
Watched the third film in the Spiderman series on Wednesday.
I really enjoyed it, the action was great and it was really funny in places, the plot didn’t always make sense but who’s going to let that get in the way of a good story!
I’d recommend it to anyone who liked the second one as its pretty much as good as that one. Also, its quite simple to understand what’s going in even if you haven’t seen the others – it stands up well as a seperate movie in itself, although it may actually be worth seeing the first film!
Was a rather heart breaking end to the film though..
In a recent magazine poll on what is the best science fiction film of all time there was a big shock.
Star Wars was knocked off the top spot and the film Serenity was crowned “greatest”.
To be honest, I suspected it was a group of fans who got together to push it to the top, but I still really wanted to see what it was like. I was thinking about seeing the film when it was on at the cinema but the trailer made me think it wasn’t worth seeing it (neither did it give any idea of what the film was about) this was a great shame.
I went out to hire it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although, I would have to say I didn’t think it was the “Greatest” by a long way and my suspicious, I thought, were correct… BUT…
After talking to a friend at work, he told me he had the original series that the film continued from, but which had been cancelled after only 11 episodes. it was called FireFly. He graciously let me borrow them and I was curious to see the story unfold.
I’m glad I did because they were brilliant! I was very surprised, but I really thought they were great. I can now, with a hundred percent certainty, say that the people who voted for Serenity did because THEY DO think its the greatest – they were just talking about the film AND the series.
I’m hoping it all comes back… but until then, I’ll have to be buying my own DVD Collection! (And on a side note to this, Amazon have said that after this poll came out, serenity / firefly suddenly shot towards the top seller marks! http://www.sfx.co.uk/page/sfx?entry=sfx_poll_result_sends_serenity)

FireFly – May you once again rise from the fire.
So did you get the film title from the cryptic title? Well, it’s Ice Age of course, actually Ice Age 2. And I went to see it last night. I thought it was very good. The animation of the characters had much improved and the lighting made everything seem closer to reality than before. They almost look like really models. Although the water effects sometimes looked a bit funny, noticeably when a wall of ice collapses.
The story was also very funny, and I laughed to myself throughout the film. I’d recommend it. Scrat is as funny as ever – can’t beat a good bit of slapstick!
I thought it was better than the first one, but others didn’t. Have a look at trailers and games here.
