  2. platonic-relationships:

001. kirk, spock, and mccoy (star trek)
Arguably one of the things that made Star Trek so memorable and such a cultural staple was the strong bond between its three leads. They are all very different from each other. Captain Kirk is all instinctual. He makes plans in the swing of the second and his many romantic conquests speak of his impulsive nature. He takes the chances Spock’s logical nature wouldn’t dream of pursuing. Spock is cool, calm, and critical. He helps temper Kirk’s fire and adds a pragmatic point of view to Dr. McCoy’s typically emotional responses to situations. Plus he’s sassy as fuck. Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy thinks with his heart. Yes, he is grumpy, but he also is the one who breathes some emotional warmth into some of Spock’s more coldly analytic plans and consistently reminds his both of his friends of their worth. And he’s also sassy as fuck.
All three of them complete each other and the depth of their devotion to each other is instantly clear. This affection, while remaining entirely platonic in the show, was one of the things that sparked the emergence of slash fiction (as well as fanfiction in general) as part of fandom.
Plus, the banter between these three is amazing. Yes, the 1960’s show can be corny and nonsensical and overly dramatic and whatever else you want to call it… but the snappy writing between these three is incentive enough to watch it.

    After Star Trek V, producer Harve Bennett tried to get a “Starfleet Academy” movie going, just in case there were problems reuniting the original crew for a sixth film.  Paramount went with it, but Roddenberry, fans and the original actors balked.

    So here are some concept art pieces.  Kirk and Spock up top.  McCoy in the middle.  And … the Enterprise?

    It blows my mind how much this sketch from circa 1990 looks like the NX-01 from more than a decade later.

  5. If you feel like playing film critic misogyny bingo when America’s first round of Winter Soldier reviews are published this week, I recommend looking out for the phrases “leather-clad” and “ass-kicker.” These are an easy way to weed out any reviewers who weren’t paying attention to the movie, because neither phrase describes Black Widow’s actual role.

    For one thing, Black Widow is not “leather-clad.” Not unless you’re talking about the casual leather jacket she wears in a handful of scenes, anyway. Her official uniform is no tighter than Captain America’s was in The Avengers, and is similar to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s artificial fabric jumpsuits. By comparison, the Winter Soldier’s signature look involves leather body armor, ’90s grunge hair, smudged eyeliner, and a black rubber mask.

    Spider-Man’s spandex costume is probably more salacious, but I’m pretty sure he doesn’t wind up being described as an homme fatale by anyone with a Pulitzer.

    Honestly, this kind of catsuit-focused review says more about the reviewer than the film itself. Apparently the mere concept of Scarlett Johansson in a tight outfit is so dazzlingly erotic that it bypasses some male reviewers’ conscious minds and causes them to ignore everything she says and does for the rest of the movie. The result is a series of reviews from highly respected film critics who, given the opportunity to describe each Avenger in a single sentence, replace Black Widow’s summary with the announcement, “I AM A HETEROSEXUAL MAN AND SCARLETT JOHANSSON’S BOOBS ARE AWESOME.”

    ….

    This unrelenting focus on Scarlett Johansson’s appearance, coupled with the assumption that her only non-decorative role is that of an “ass-kicker,” indicates a fundamental inability to see Black Widow as the well-rounded character she actually is.
