Star Trek FAQ 2.0 – A Slice of SciFi Review

Star Trek FAQ 2.0

There have been countless books written about Star Trek. We have seen books ranging from the making of the different series of shows, books on Star Trek trivia, books on timelines, and even scriptbooks. So, it came to no one’s surprise that a book of Frequently Asked Questions would be released. What did surprise me was the format of this particular book.

“Monsters University” – A Slice of SciFi Review

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

Going into this film I had some initial trepidation. While it is true that Pixar has yet to completely disappoint me with an entirely lackluster movie, I did have some doubts with this film. What made the 2001 movie, Monster’s Inc., so incredible was not just the brilliant voice casting of Billy Crystal and John Goodman.

“Les Misérables” — A Slice of SciFi Review

Les Misérables is the movie I was dreading to see and for two separate reasons. First, I was afraid that it wouldn’t live up to my experiences when seeing the stage play. I know the soundtrack (from the 10th Anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall) inside and out, memorized every voice and ever nuance in the performances. I was afraid the movie wouldn’t equal such grandeur.

“The Hobbit” — A Slice of SciFi Review

I know that some people thought it would be too much, that taking what was a single novel into a trilogy. Luckily Peter Jackson, along with Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens and Guillermo Del Toro have drawn from really great sources, namely The Silmarillion, The Lord Of The Rings and its appendices. What they have crafted is a very enjoyable movie that does honor the spirit of the book.
