Star Trek:Enterprise Intro

Personally I love this show, although many Star Trek fans will lament how this series messed with continuity. There are certainly some things I didn't agree with but I thought this was a worthwhile experiment. I was disappointed when after 4 seasons this series was cancelled.

While this post was titled Star Trek: Enterprise, I still refer to this series as simply Enterprise. Enterprise was this series' original title until the third season when Star Trek was added to it. Now I want to just go out and find a DVD set since the series isn't even running in syndication anymore these days!

Oh and this intro is an intro I liked better than the one used during the first two seasons. The tempo if much faster than the slower pace of the tune of the first two seasons. It feels a lot more optimistic than it did in the first two seasons. Almost as if the crew of the starship Enterprise is a lot more confident about their mission!

Siskel & Ebert Review Batman Mask of The Phantasm

I bought this movie on VHS a few years ago. I finally got a chance to see this movie having missed it the first time around. It seems it was out one week then the next week it was out of the theaters.

I was a fan of the animated series that aired on FOX usually during the week. I was often able to watch this program after school. It intrigued me because of the animation.

I still didn't think this was the true Batman. I don't think I ever knew about the Time Burton Batman movies, either Batman or Batman Returns. The animated Batman that I saw circa 1992-93 was much more serious than watching Adam West or Burt Ward from the 1960s.

When I finally saw the movie I enjoyed it. The film soundtrack was top notch and atmospheric. The intro chilled my soul in the worst way.

I'll also give one important distinction about this movie, near the end of the film you would catch me sobbing. I'll just leave it at that. The plot wasn't the best, but it's still an enjoyable movie.

Great animation and the superhero is broughtback to his more human elements. Did you know Batman/Bruce Wayne had a girlfriend once upon a time?

Check it out and watch with your children! Especially if you look at the review by the late Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert.

Wrath Of Khan: The Battle of the Mutara Nebula

Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan is one of the finest movies ever. I haven't seen this film in years but since there is a new Star Trek movie coming out this year. I really look forward to watching some of the movies I have in my collection. You will enjoy the music in this clip.

This is without a doubt one of the best scenes in the movie. Kahn vs. Kirk. Reliant vs. Enterprise. The battle damage inflicted. The missed shots. Even the leadership qualities and abilities. It's really something!
