As I mentioned earlier, I’m starting a new video series as a companion piece too As part of at the The dropout. The video usually starts with the Monday article and is published in the magazine Youtube Channel the following week. That’s a little cool because we’re helping restart the magazine’s movie channel. So if you could get a subscription our way it would mean a lot.
This week we looked at the strange miracle that was happening Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Landand the fact that it’s impossible these days to imagine a franchise pulling down the shutters in the same way. The undiscovered land is not only an explicit rejection of nostalgia, but also a questioning of the past that refuses to draw blows into its view of the original Star Trek. It’s an approach that could never happen today, and popular culture is all the weaker for it.
