I saw this somewhere sometime last night while trying to keep myself awake for some reason. It is just so fascinating to watch. And it is only an two-minute excerpt. Check it out as Captain Kirk works himself up into a lather to spew his most famous line.

The clip is a short version of a 15-minute film that some hot shot made using only the few seconds before and after Shatner's famous outburst. Read the entire article about it here.

I've watched it about half a dozen times now. There is some fucking acting going on in those few seconds, my friends. Serious acting.

PS - New beer review is up over at the Beer-Eyed Blog. Feh.

Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Khhhhaaaaaaannnnnnn!!!!!!

Holly - Awesome! (Just about everyone got a 10/10 yesterday) ;)

Michelle - Sure he did. He yelled "Khaaaaaan" twice. You just didn't watch long enough.

the last trek movie makes me pine to watch ST2 again..

"he made us tell lies... do tings!"

Verdant Earl said...

Avitable - not sure where it is available.

2abes - I dunno if I plan on seeing it in the theaters, but to be honest the trailer makes me giggle.

Uncool - hard to believe, isn't it?

Sybil - it wasn't my call, believe me. Although I should have gotten another 3 questions right. Changed my answers. Doh!

Slyde - "He tasks me"

Avitable said...

Oh I'm sure I can buy it on DVD or Blu Ray.

Verdant Earl said...

Adam - oh, you mean the actual film. You haven't seen it? Wow. Get on that. It's a little cheesy now, but it still holds up pretty well.

Michelle said...

And yes sir i did indeed have DiFara Pizza!!!



Heff said...

Well, that was 2 minutes and nine seconds of my life that I'll never get back, lol !

I do love the Shat, though. Mostly his earlier stuff.

Verdant Earl said...

Michelle - I am truly jealous.

Heff - It sucks you in though, doesn't it?

For me, William Shatner is an icon among actors. It helps to have known him from the beginning of the Original Star Trek series. I imagine if my first awareness of him had been T.J. Hooker, I'd just laugh him off.

He's Kirk. He kicks everybody's ass from the Gorn to Khan, and he's delivered some of the greatest monologues ever written for TV.

MikeB - and he did Joan Collins in the 1930's back in that one episode. Yeah...he got game.
