About Me

I founded the online review site, Rambles.NET, in 1999 and continue to operate the site with more than 200 contributors and more than 14,000 reviews in our permanent online archives. A fraction of my reviews from that site are featured here at Lunch.com.

I am also a daily newspaper reporter and fiddler in the Irish trio Fire in the Glen, … more

reviewed Star Trek (2009). August 26, 2010
Star Trek Poster
To be honest, I didn't think it could be done. I'm one of those old-time fans. I grew up on episodes of Star Trek in syndication. I cheered the return of the original cast to the movies. I followed …
reviewed Star Trek: Nemesis. August 26, 2010
Star Trek: Nemesis
If one is good, two must be better. That must be the philosophy driving the 10th installment in the big-screen Star Trek franchise. Nemesis doubles its pleasure by cloning two characters and borrowing …
reviewed Star Trek: Insurrection. August 26, 2010
Star Trek: Insurrection
The Star Trek movie franchise continues in good hands with Insurrection, the ninth installment (third with the Next Generation cast) in the series. In its long history, Star Trek has given us a quest …
reviewed Star Trek: Generations. August 26, 2010
Star Trek Generations
Since another original-cast movie was out of the question, the first 17 minutes of Star Trek VII was the next best thing. The film begins with great opening credits: a bottle of Dom Perignon floating …
reviewed Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. August 26, 2010
Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
Star Trek VI begins with one hell of a bang. I approached this film with trepidation. Knowing it was to be the final outing for the original cast and crew, I worried that their last performance would …

Quick Tips
posted a Quick Tip about The Duras Sisters. August 27, 2010
The Duras Sisters
OK villains, noteworthy mostly for bad teeth and vast cleavage.
posted a Quick Tip about Kai Winn Adami. August 27, 2010
Kai Winn Adami
Oh, I got so tired of her popping up in that show!!! The wicked cleric plot device was WAY overused.
posted a Quick Tip about Tasha Yar. August 27, 2010
Tasha Yar
It's a shame they never seemed sure what to do with her. Her posthumous soliloquy on the holodeck is a nadir in TNG's bad first season.
posted a Quick Tip about William Riker. August 27, 2010
William Riker
TNG's answer to Kirk. I'm glad he was there to fill the vacancy left by Picard.
posted a Quick Tip about Captain Jean Luc Picard. August 27, 2010
Captain Jean Luc Picard
Overly bureaucratic and deskbound, he was at least able to grow a bit bolder after a time-hopping encounter with Kirk.
posted a Quick Tip about Star Trek - "The Doomsday Machine". August 27, 2010
The Doomsday Machine (Star Trek Original Series episode)
This is in many ways the best episode of Star Trek ever filmed.
posted a Quick Tip about Deanna Troi. August 27, 2010
Deanna Troi
The character herself was fine, but a counselor has no place on the bridge. Her seat at the captain's side was an obvious weakness in the series, right from the start.
posted a Quick Tip about Leeta. August 27, 2010
Proof positive that cleavage will still be appreciated in the future.
posted a Quick Tip about Yeoman Janice Rand. August 27, 2010
Yeoman Janice Rand
I wish she'd stuck around a little longer in the series. Wasted potential for this character!
posted a Quick Tip about Marta. August 27, 2010
A prime example of green alien hotness, circa the 1960s.
