Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the first large widescreen format of the Enterprise, first released in 1979. To this point, The Original Series and The Animated Series have been comforting and positive, if not downright enjoyable adventures throughout space under the banner of the Federation. Those two series also, at this point, represent all of my Trek experience.Declassify >

Love it or Hate it, Blonde Might Be the Best Art Film Ever
Blonde, the much maligned fictionalized biopic of Marilyn Monroe from director Andrew Dominik and based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, may just be the art film to end all art films.
It plays with color and sound, aspect ratio and focus, cameras and camera angles, light and darkness, and hard cuts and pans. Put simply, it’s all of the things you can do with a film all in one film.Declassify >
Entwined Legacies Celebrated in “The Day the Music Died” Doc
It’s a song about legacy that ended up with a legacy all its own. “The Day the Music Died” is a documentary about “American Pie,” how it was created and written from Don McLean himself and his producer, as well as how it became a legendary piece of music.
This documentary is 94 minutes of entertaining history about the longest number one hit single in history. For those counting, the song runs eight minutes and 36 seconds.Declassify >
Love for Jurassic Park Series is Anything but Extinct, 30 Years Later
Until I became a self-sufficient consumer, there was only one movie I had ever watched on opening weekend. In fact, until I could buy my own tickets, it was the first film I’d seen within the first few weeks of release: Jurassic Park.
It was wet. It might have been raining when we arrived or at some point during the film or earlier in the day, but that’s how I remember it. What I know for sure is that I was 10 years old and going to the drive-in with my parents to see Jurassic Park on the big screen. That kind of memory sticks with you.Declassify >
