Off the Shelf…’Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

J.J. Abrams, after years in TV, proved his mettle revitalizing the Star Trek franchise on the big screen. He later left the galaxy where people boldly go, and ventured into another – this one far, far away. The first non-Lucas involved Star Wars episodic story expands on everything which came before. However, Episode VII, smartly, does not rely on […]

G-S-T Review…Star Wars: The Force Awakens

​Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues to take the world by storm, but that shouldn’t be news to anyone. It is Star Wars after all, but with J.J. Abrams at the helm, things looked really good from the get-go. The film isn’t perfect (pacing is sluggish at times, and villains, at this point, are under-cooked), but […]

Aside from #Turkey and #BlackFriday, the interwebs were a blaze this holiday weekend with an equally searched for and buzzed about search: the official Star Wars Ep. VII teaser.

On Second Thought, Bill’s Take: G-S-T Review…Star Trek Into Darkness

There’s a vitality to director J.J. Abram’s latest foray into the Star Trek universe. While he may not be going where no man—or this series in particular—has gone before, it appears his goal is to give the series forward momentum that can be sustained even if he doesn’t return to the helm. Certainly, Abrams leaves […]

G-S-T Review…Star Trek Into Darkness

There are two layers to Star Trek Into Darkness. One exists at the surface level and involves everything that we see, hear, and experience while watching it in a theater, and the other involves the efforts that occurred below the line, prior to the film’s arrival at the multiplex. Just like its 2009 predecessor, the former layer […]

Cooper & Abrams Might Give Lance Armstrong the Biopic Treatment – UPDATED

Does it take a man having a great professional year to portray a man having a terrible professional year? Yes, at least if J.J. Abrams and Bradley Cooper have anything to say about it. If you’ve been paying close, or even cursory, attention to the news for the past week and change, you’re probably well […]

I Feel A Great Disturbance In The Force…J.J. Abrams To Direct Episode VII??

The cinematic universe that lives following those epic words A Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far Far Away has grown by leaps an bounds since 1977. But no other event in the history of Star Wars has shaken more ground than the new that has just broke today (not even Greedo shooting first). Take […]
