Galaxy Quest (1999) – 20th Anniversary Blu-Ray

Somehow, the now iconic science fiction comedy Galaxy Quest is turning twenty this year. That doesn’t seem possible. It’s as if someone enhanced the Omega 13 and shot us forward in time rather than in reverse. You see, I remember seeing it in the theater, laughing aloud at the realization that these filmmakers, these actors,…

Disney’s Aladdin: The Signature Collection

God I love this movie. This was the first Disney movie that I saw more than once in the theater. When it came out in 1992 I took everyone I could to see it (the only other Disney film I did that with was The Lion King in 1994). I loved everything about it, Howard…

Star Trek: Voyager (1997) – Worst Case Scenario, and Scorpion

Captain’s log: stardate 50953.4 Kenneth Biller pens this episode that first debuted on 14 May, 1997, and gives the Voyager crew and the audience a “what if” scenario. A holo-program depicting a Maquis mutiny aboard the Voyager is discovered, and it seems everyone is playing it. It also leads to a really nice teaser when…

Boy’s Life (1991) – Robert McCammon

I remember reading this book in paperback when it first came out. It was summer, and I was in Toronto working to save (a little) money for my post secondary education. I was delighted in the nostalgia in it, and recalled being moved by the tale within its pages. When I came across it in…

Wild Wild West (1999) – Barry Sonnenfeld

  Ahh, the late 20th century, when Will Smith the comedic actor was at the top of his game having come off of the incredibly successful Men In Black, which was directed by Sonnenfeld, who was having a string of good luck himself, with MiB, Get Shorty, and the Addams Family movies. So, they paired…

Toronto Theatre – So Much to See!

  One of the things I love about living in Toronto is that there is always so much to do, there is always something on the go. Sue and I are huge fans of going to the movies, the zoo, very shortly the Aquarium, even taking in the odd sporting event. Of course there are…

The Rep (2012) – Morgan White

The communal experience of movie-going, of settling in to watch an old favorite on the big screen where it belongs, with other people who love it as much as you, and people who are being introduced to it for the first time. I own my favorite movie, Jaws (in case you haven’t been following the…
