I have attempted to rank the films on their cinematic merits and how I compare them in terms of film making. .
I have enjoyed the Star Trek: Insurrection and Nemesis podcasts. I found the analysis interesting and engaging, and was good to listen to them straight after seeing the films. Think those two particular films are quite solid entries in the series, but not classics by any means.
Listened to the Star Trek Generations podcast & Star Trek VI podcast. Thought you guys did a great analysis. Good stuff
I Iove how Kirk says to Spock to conduct himself in modern society “Spock, it is not necessary to always tell the truth“. 🤣
Cheers for the feedback! Glad to hear that. Great films and think The Voyage Home is probably my second or third favourite of the franchise.
I listened to the pod of The Search for Spock the other day , thought you guys did a great job. Going to rewatch The Voyage Home soon & look forward to listening to the podcast of it!
Well, we haven't done written reviews yet (although, that sounds like something I should task Fran with) however we have done a podcast on each of the Star Trek films. Here is Star Trek: The Search for Spock one - https://www.kapeesh.online/post/2019/05/01/kapeesh-filmcast-ep-18-captains-log-project-star-trek-3-the-search-for-spock. Enjoy!
Have you done any reviews of the Star Trek films, The Voyage Home & The Search for Spock? I thought they were great, and they had a lot going for them.
Glad you liked the podcast!
Yeah I can agree. As much as I liked the chopper chase with Wai Lin halfway through it becomes a bit manic in the final act.
Yeah i think that’s correct. Also agreed regarding the Diamonds are Forever podcast about it being madcap and a questionable plot. I just believe it’s an abysmal performance by Connery and the female lead is poor.
Yup, with you on that one. I think the writing is mostly to blame but Guy Hamilton should have been able to get better performances so it's on him as well. Connery being so well paid and under-delivering is a big problem of the film as the money would have been better spent on other areas of the production that were lacking.
Not long finished the Tommorow Never Dies Podcast, thought it was interesting & provided a good analysis. Think it’s a film that really loses its way half way through, and it then descends into too much emphasis on action and stunts.
Well, actually I suppose I'm talking to Kapeesh Online, whoever that's supposed to be.
Again, just sitting in here by myself, talking to myself.
