The Wrath of Khan

Nicholas Myer, 1982 (7.8*)
I’m a big science fiction literature fan, have read about 500 sf books, hence I’m not a Star Trek fan as the writing is an insult to the genre, pure garbage. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the second film, Wrath of Khan, largely due to the over-the-top performance of Ricardo Montalban as the wronged former Mongol leader, now banished into space, and he is “the Great Khan”, mad as hell, not gonna take it any more. Happily, Captain Kirk shows up to become the target of his wrath, so we have a villain to pull for as we'd all like to see William Shatner get his! Fun stuff, mindless, but a highlight of this mostly boring series. I hear the even numbers are the good ones, and four was ok: The Voyage Home, the one with the whales. I’ve forgotten all the others… hopefully.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
