The Nitpicker's Guide to Star Trek Into Darkness Part 1



Happy 85th birthday to Mr. Bill Shatner!   

And what a year it is for Star Trek.  The Original Series is celebrating its 50th anniversary on September 8th a new TV Series is due out in January 2017 and they already have great talent on board like Nicolas Meyer.  And finally Star Trek Beyond is hitting theatres this summer and with a whole new creative team this third film in the reboot franchise might actually not suck. However, none of that is saving this film and so it’s not getting spared the nitpickers treatment.

Short Subject: Barnyard Olympics (1932)



It’s more like chaos than any Olympic event I’ve ever witnessed, but it’s certainly fun anyway.

Short Subject: Mickey’s Elephant (1936)



Between this and ‘Donald’s Penguin’ we have excellent examples of why you do not give people pets as gifts.

Short Subject: The Karnival Kid (1929)



A sentient hotdog getting spanked and two cats singing on a fence getting hit with a chamber pot, it’s an Ub Iwerks animation all right.
