Captain Jean-Luc Picard. My favorite character. I have so much fondness for a fictional character that I wrote a geeky love letter to Sir Patrick Stewart a few years ago. Captain Picard was more than a wonderful role model. He was an outlet, an escape of the emptiness I felt as a young boy and teenager. There was meaning behind his words. He had a duty to uphold. Yes, there was the Starfleet’s Prime Directive, but, in the end, his ultimate duty came to serving and protecting those he commanded on the Starship Enterprise (NCC-1701-D), and doing the right thing.

It’s not often these days that I’ll see a movie in the theatre more than once. Who has time? It has to be something really special - truly unique - to draw me back in for a repeat, big-screen presentation. I just finished my second viewing of Richard Stanley’s Color Our of Space, based on the H.P. Lovecraft short story. I fell immediately in love with the film, which I had incredibly high expectations for upon my first viewing. The second viewing not only confirmed that love, but nourished it.
