Beam us up, Scotty! On this week’s Geek Confidential podcast Luke Kerr and Craig Peters are joined by Duane Eckholm to review the latest installment of the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek Beyond.
The first trailer for Justin Lin’s Start Trek Beyond didn’t provide a good first impression of the film. Was it as bad as the trailer indicated or was it much better? The trio dives into the latest mission of Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and the USS Enterprise crew. They share what they loved and hated about Star Trek Beyond.
Star Trek Beyond didn’t just make news as a film. Real world events, including the deaths of Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin, drew headlines around the world. The three discuss the film’s tributes to its passing stars. They also discuss the “controversy” of Sulu (John Cho) being revealed as gay in the new movie.
The Geek Confidential podcast wraps with Luke, Craig and Duane ranking Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond.
