Leonard – A Review

Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship with a Remarkable ManLeonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship with a Remarkable Man by William Shatner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Even though I have been a lifelong fan of Star Trek, I was surprised to learn a few things while reading this book. Over the years I had been aware of the rumours regarding feuds between its stars but I chose not to take stock in them. This book is an honest and frank account of a relationship that was to span five decades. I admire William Shatner for his openness and it was clear that although there were painful periods for both of them, William’s love for Leonard came through quite clearly.
At times this book was humorous and at times very emotional. It moved me deeply and I learned so much about the kind of man Leonard actually was. I have seen a different side to him now and I admire him even more for it.
I highly recommend this book and I do not feel that it’s necessary to be a fan of Star Trek. There is so much more to this amazing story and the deep (if somewhat patchy) friendship between two remarkable men.

Star Trek Beyond

I am totally blown away by Star Trek Beyond. I have just come back from watching it for the first time (more viewings to come), and I can’t stress enough how brilliant it actually is. It’s the first of the new Trek films to actually make you feel as though you are watching an episode of the original series. It had just what we have come to know and love about Star Trek: A few laughs, great camaraderie, touching moments, and an excellent script. Well done and thank you to Simon Pegg and Doug Jung for giving us what we’ve all been waiting for. You have absolutely nailed it!

And this was an awesome bonus form our local cinema:logo

 

 

Just have to wait until tomorrow now…
