Is it too much to ask for someone to like both Star Trek and Star Wars?
The world's largest LEGO creation landed in New York City on Thursday. It took 32 master builders over 17,000 hours and more than five million bricks to create a humongous 11-foot-tall model of Star War's X-Wing Starfighter.
It's just Brian and Zaki for this week's installment of the MovieFilm Podcast, but they have plenty to discuss. First...
I've never really understood the divide between Star Wars and Star Trek fans. As far I can tell, they're just two sides of the same tragic coin. Yes, Star Wars happened to be the popular entity when I was in elementary school.

This week sees the theatrical release of two of Star Trek: The Next Generation's best episodes, stitched together into one movie, The Best of Both Worlds.
Do we like the idea of cloning so much that we are willing to endure the same theme for the past 20-plus years? I decided to look back in history and find examples throughout the years to illustrate this point.
I may not be passing on my genes, but I can pass on my values, my beliefs, the things I consider important to cherish in our ever-so-brief walk across this world.
Can a certain level or type of violence actually make a popcorn action film less enjoyable and/or null the would-be happy ending? Arguably there should be some kind of proverbial line in the sand when it comes to casual carnage in 'just for fun' action pictures.
I have spent months trying to find Star Wars underpants featuring strong female characters for my tween. I'm still looking. If she were in the market for, oh, say, highly inappropriate sexy thongs, she would be awash in options, such as Victoria's Secret's "Bright Young Things."
It's amazing some researchers haven't figured out a way of determining personalities based on what aspect of Frank Oz's career one is impressed with. ...
