If you’ve got a 90 minutes or so check out Star Trek: Beyond the Final Frontier, the 2007 documentary on the history of the franchise hosted by Leonard Nimoy. It’s broken up into nine parts, which is a little annoying, but take a look at part one below and then you can find the rest here.

Conan says goodbye

In case you missed it Conan O’Brien signed off Friday night for the final time as the host of The Tonight Show. And he did it with class:

Well done. I have no doubt Coco will land on his feet (and a $45 million cushion NBC gave him should help his fall).

Conan O’Brien might be going away, but he’s not doing it quietly. Last night the late night host unveiled his new philosophy “we can do whatever we want, and they have to pay for it. So for the rest of the week we’re going to introduce new comedy bits that aren’t so much funny as crazy expensive.” The first bit: a Bugatti Veyron mouse introduced to the Rolling Stones hit “Satisfaction.” The cost? $1.5 Million. The look on NBC’s execs faces when learning of this? Priceless. Nicely played sir.

I’ve been holding on to this for a little while, but I think it’s time to share. You have no doubt been following the late night craziness. So have Sam Looc and Steven Ho, who have have given us what everyone really wants to see: a street fight between Jay Leno and Conan O’Brien. FIGHT!

Leno vs Conan Brawl!

The day isn’t going to end before I get a chance to celebrate Danny Kaye‘s birthday with this classic clip from The Court Jester. Remember, “the pellet with the poison’s in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true!”

In case you missed it the Golden Globes held their annual bash last night and gave out some pretty golden statues at the same time trying to get every star in Hollywood drunk on cheap hooch. You can find a list of winners and nominees here, but for the purposes of this post we’ll be focusing on host Ricky Gervais whose entire night has been cut down to less than ten minutes. Take a look.

Both Mr. Sparkle and I thought enough to include Moon on our Best Movies of 2009 lists (check them out here and here), and now that the film has finally made it’s way to DVD and Blu-ray it’s an easy recommendation to make. But don’t just take our word for it. Below you’ll find the first seven minutes of the film which should, hopefully, tempt you to see even more.

If you’re a MythBusters fan (and if you’re not, what’s wrong with you?), you might want to check out the following video of Adam Savage sharing his failures to a captive audience. Take a look.

Given the anticipation for the upcoming Captain America origin film some of you may have forgotten that the hero has made his way to the big screen (okay, direct-to-video) before. Here’s the early showdown between Cap (Matt Salinger) and The Red Skull (Scott Paulin) from 1990’s Captain America.
