Palmer's Trek

Palmers Trek Star Trek III The Search for Spock

Palmer’s Trek: Star Trek III The Search for Spock

A direct sequel to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is, as I write this, my favorite of the films in this franchise because, even more than its direct predecessor, this is an even more of a direct return to the Original Series.

Palmer’s Trek: Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan

This movie was something special, as it marks for me a return to form for the franchise and getting back to the roots of what made it so special in The Original Series. Of all the films in the franchise, this was the one that those Trek fans around me were most excited for me to experience.

“One Day Ahead” Spins a Great Story about Tour de France, Mental Health

One Day Ahead Documentary Review

Jonathan Douglas asked the question, “Is it possible for an average bloke to ride all 21 stages of the Tour de France?” That question and the answer to it can be witnessed in the sub-hour documentary “One Day Ahead” by Silver Eye Films.

In it, we follow eight New Zealanders in their attempt to complete the 2018 Tour de France, one stage at a time, one day ahead of the actual professional race, in order to raise money and awareness for the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

Love it or Hate it, Blonde Might Be the Best Art Film Ever

Blonde is the best art film

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.
