Cinematic Advent Calendar #04 – Star Trek VI

Cinematic Advent Calendar #04 - Star Trek VI

There have been a fair few Star Trek films, out of all of them the one I like best is number six. It tells the story of the thawing of relations between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. With overtones of the Cold War, this story about an old starship crew (making no apologies for the ageing cast) been put into a situation that isn’t what they are use to or expect is gripping and humourous at the same time.

I do think it was the best of the “old cast” films, I did like IV with the whales and time travel, but at the end of the day, of all of them VI wins out. I do like how Sulu now has his own ship. There is a great supporting cast too with Christopher Plummer and David Warner playing the Klingons with great effect.

It’s hard to believe, but the film is over twenty years old now. So is this one of your favourites, or is it one of other films?

TNG on Blu-Ray

So they’re going to release Star Trek TNG on Blu-Ray….

Hmmmm

I have a few TNG episodes on VHS, I even have a fair few on DVD, am I going to go and get it on Blu-Ray or iTunes…

I think not.

Seems that one way for companies like Paramount to make money is to constantly re-release stuff on new formats.

I realise I am getting to an age where my existing collections of media are getting old and in some cases will no longer work. My collection of audio cassettes for example are in some cases quite painful to listen to. I have CDs that really don’t like been played. The VHS cassettes in the garage, well if I had a working VCR they probably wouldn’t play anyhow…

At least my DVDs play in the Blu-Ray player… for now…
