The Critics.
Some of the critics I connect to here will simply be people who posted a commentary I though interesting.

There are those critics who appreciated Star Trek for offering scientific or social commentary, and were disappointed with Star Trek V and Star Trek XI. Then, there were those critics who felt such purpose was a reason to damn Star Trek... movies are for entertainment, they insisted, not education. Then there's Roger Ebert, who is one of only a few critics who were already on the job in 1978, and are still writing 31 years later. He is also consistent in the sense that he NEVER likes Trek. In the old days, it was because it was scientific projection and social commentary and who needed that, it wasn't entertainment, like Star Wars. But with Star Trek XI, he suddenly didn't like it because it wasn't science fiction, it was just entertainment. Can you say, damned if you do, damned if you don't?



The Calgary Public Library claims to have every TV show and the first 10 movies available for viewing, vis: http://blog.calgarypubliclibrary.com/blogs/movie_maniacs/archive/2009/07/20/to-boldly-go.aspx
