Encase anyone was wondering I am still doing reviews but haven’t seen any new films recently and the new trailers have been poo. I will be watching and reviewing Chappie next week.
This is an end of the week wrap up of what has happened in the geeky world of movies. I took better notes this time so I have a more complete list of things that have happened. Sadly nothing of much note has happened in the world of movies. So this post is a bit more random. And of course the devastating news that Leonard Nimoy has passed away.
Also I’ll include some movie features I liked from the blogosphere. I follow a lot of nerds!
With the release of Star Trek Into Darkness this weekend I thought it would be a great time to review part 1 in the nerdiest reboot of all time. This Star Trek was a shockingly good film when it came out and I was very impressed when I first saw, so angry I didn’t get to see in IMAX but either watching it on a phone or the big screen this film was excellent. The story was clever and allowed for both an origin story of the original and a whole new path for the franchise, Abram’s you sneaky Bastard. The cast is great and I loved their interpretations of the characters, some interesting choices for the roles but they paid off with some great performances. The visuals are amazing and are truly breath-taking, from the halls of the Enterprise to the epic battles in space. The science fiction is fascinating but for the new generation a little heart pounding action is required and that’s what this film does well in many different ways. I hope you all enjoy the new Star Trek this weekend and come back for my review on Friday. Live long and prosper \\//.

Second feature of the 5 bests is the best alien invasion films. Science fiction is my genre, alien films are a keen interest and alien invasion films are just damn cool! It’s a good mixture of these types of films. I have featured action heavy films to dramatic paranoia and all of which I would recommend to my readers. If anyone has any film they are adamant that I have over looked, please point that film out to me because I am not an expert even though I have watched a lot of these films. Please enjoy the list and comment at the end.
