    Episode 95: STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN

    Huge Trek fan, but it is a no for me. A solid, fun film, but some iffy acting, odd pacing at times and over all "extended TV movie" feeling tips me into the "no" camp.

    Episode #92: STAND BY ME

    An easy yes for me. I agree with Devin that it perfectly captures all the weird stuff in the world of twelve year old boys. I liked it when it first came out, and pretty much any time I stumble on to it on TV I have to watch it through to the end. I've wondered whether women could relate to it in quite the same way as men, and I think Amy made some good points about how it did not quite speak to her the way it did to Devin (and to all us male folk), and it at least made me consider whether we are elevating it to the Canon of great films because its just another example of male oriented standards. (Yay for the patriarchy!) Nah, it's just a really terrific film that is spot on for what it tries to do. I would like to know if there are any films that resonate quite the same way for women, as Stand By Me does for men in terms of capturing a particular period of childhood.
