Twenty six years ago this May, the last episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation aired, and that felt like a solid goodbye. Movies came along over the years, and the stories were interesting, but I don’t think many fans from that era really expected captain Jean-Luc Picard to return to TV again.
An ultraviolent, but suitable presumed send-off for Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of Wolverine, Logan tries to once again differentiate itself from the franchise it spawned from and similarly ends up with mixed results.
Lazy Friday News is a weekly round-up of stories from across the spectrum of entertainment, or whatever happens to tickle my funny bone. This week: Zack Snyder has taken Superman’s underwear right off in Man of Steel; Waterworld might have been awful, but we may see it again; vegetables stand in for the new RoboCop; two past X-Men stars are coming back in X-Men: Days of Future Past; and the good and bad news about film piracy.
Lazy Friday News is a weekly round-up of stories from across the spectrum of entertainment, or whatever happens to tickle my funny bone. This week: the first demo from The Beatles has resurfaced after 50 years; Emma Stone may have a sex tape out there somewhere; Judd Apatow’s 22-year-old Simpsons script is finally being made; $299 could earn you a celebrity voicemail message; Chevy Chase is walking away from Community; and expect the next Riddick film to come with a hard-R rating.
From the beginning, I was a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and when it debuted on DVD over a decade ago, I devoured the episodes and wrote extensive reviews of the collection.
This must be some kind of wonderful synchronicity. The same day that I found out Patrick Stewart will be the big guest of honour at Fan Expo in August, what do I get in the mail? It just so happens I got my copy of Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Next Level sampler Blu-ray disc, which was such a cool surprise that I had to watch 15 minutes of it.
Coming out this week on DVD and Blu-ray, just in time for Christmas: Emma Stone stars in the high school comedy, Easy A; Seth MacFarlane leads another Star Wars parody in Family Guy: It’s a Trap; plus a look at Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
