Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Six Summary

May 16, 2015 1 comment

Season Six of Next Generation is beginning to show a few signs of growing thin, but overall still makes for enjoyable viewing.  The thin-ness is really the same as for Season Five – there are no big story-arcs winding up.  Indeed, there aren’t really any big story-arcs winding down either.  Those all finished a couple of years prior, and the new ones are really being saved for Deep Space Nine.  We also see the roles of various regular fixtures on board the ship sort of peter out, such as Guinan, Alexander, Ro, and the O’Briens.  Though some will show up one more time next year, basically their presence as regular parts of the Next Generation landscape end on a whimper this year.

What we do get is a bunch of stand-alone episodes, including some great of ones.  Read more…

Superman Unbound

So, recently I watched the best Superman movie to come out in 2013.  It featured an massive battle between Superman and a powerhouse enemy with ties to his home planet of Krypton, with tons of epic action, but still retaining some strong character dynamics and the heart of what makes Superman awesome.  It was not called Man of Steel, but rather Superman Unbound, part of DC’s original animated feature line, based on the storyline  by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank entitled Superman: Brainiac.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

I was a bit worried going into Age of UltronThe Avengers, it’s predecessor, was of course great and all the trailers for this film looked like similar fun.  But we’ve all been burned by trailers before.  For me, the biggest recent disappointment was Man of Steel — what if this turned out to be like that?  What if this turned out to be a big, overblown, overhyped, bag of hyperkinetic  hot air with a confused structure, dopey characterization, and a lame-brain plot?  What if it, you know, was terrible?
