Following up on a chronically boring Labor Day September weekend, we don’t bother much about the box office. But we do talk IT, a strong King adaptation with Steve’s initial review. We’ve got three fun trailers, some solid Lois Smith recommendations, and spinning off of our show on Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, today’s list is all about great assassination films!
Does Nicholas Meyer return to make the best film of the franchise? Is Shakespeare really better in the original Klingon? Are Uhura’s earpieces actually comfortable? Tune in to our show to find out!
Boy, is this ever shaping up to be a boring Labor Day weekend at the box office. Andy runs the numbers and talks performance for this weekend in history. Apparently, it’s a Hitman’s Bodyguard conspiracy. That, plus new shorts from the Blade Runner 2049 story (not trailers), actual trailers, and movies with cult leaders on The List!
Is this movie really as bad as we remember? Can the story survive the bad humor burying it (alive)? And where does Uhura get her fans? Tune in to this week’s show to find out!

This week, Star Trek Discovery appears to continue the journey ... of legal wrangling and fan discontent. At least Nicholas Meyer is working on a new Star Trek series... wait... what's that again?!? There's more listener feedback from Slack on Valerian; Andy talks about his Mother issues and Pete heads back to Bushwick; and, as it turns out, you peg your jeans.
Is Khan one of the greatest villains of all time? Did Gene Roddenberry really ruin the ending for audiences? Does it matter if Khan and Kirk are ever in the same room? Tune in this week to find out!
