Movie of the Year: 1982 – Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Movie of the Year: 1982

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Who will win the ultimate battle between Kirk, Khan, and the Taste Buds, on an all-new Movie of the Year!

On the first episode of Movie of the Year to focus on a Star Trek property (and let’s be honest…most likely the last), the Taste Buds are tackling 1982’s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan! Long thought to be the best Star Trek movie of all time, Khan has been brought up all season long, so Ryan, Mike, and Greg had no choice but to discuss it! Because Ryan doesn’t know much about the franchise, they’re enlisting friend-of-the-show Teri to join the crew! Together, the foursome begin the conversation in the manner conversations of these sorts must begin: by comparing how big their Star Trek wieners are!

From there, however, they dive into the movie. How well does Khan represent Star Trek as a whole? If you love Khan, where do you go from here? Is it straight back to the original series, or do you just move on to The Next Generation?

They’ll also breakdown the Kirk/Khan dynamic, one of the most glorious relationship/rivalries in all of sci-fi filmdom. Who is the better character, and who gives the better performance? Plus, they’ll dive into what the movie has to say about age, death, and the passing of the torch. All of that, and so much more, on an all-new Movie of the Year!

While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.

Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.

Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.
