Shatner at STC2015

The Official Star Trek Convention is going on right now in Las Vegas (August 6-9, 2015), and the show always brings out many familiar Trek stars to interact with the fans all weekend.  Saturday afternoon featured the Q&A panel of one of the all-time greats of the “classic” series and films, none other than Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner.  Fans in attendance at the panel got way more than they bargain for, though, as Shatner finally decided to break his silence on why he and fellow Trek star George Takei don’t get along so well.

Fantastic FourI wanted to like it.  I really did.

I actually found all the pre-release roller-coaster drama of the production’s ups and downs really intriguing.  The idea for the creation of this movie was heavily maligned from the start; according to 20th Century Fox’s deal with Marvel, if they wanted to keep the rights to the FF franchise, then the company has to make a new film featuring the characters every decade or so, or else the rights will revert back to Marvel.  Since it’s been eight painful years since the Galactus-bastardizing head-scratcher Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Fox felt obligated to pump another one out.  Trust me, however, when I tell you: don’t feel obligated to go see this film.
