Cinematic Recreations

Hello, and welcome to my blog. I am going to be starting a new feature called 'Cinematic Recreations,' in which I re-create wonderful scenes from wonderful movies. In this first edition, I will be doing 'The Wrath of Khan.'

In this scene, Khan has failed to kill Captain Kirk, his nemesis, but has managed to cause considerable collateral damage. Khan is in a different ship, and he and Kirk communicate through radio.

Khan, you dirty bloodsucker!! You're going to have to do your own dirty work now! Do you hear
me?! Do you?!

Kirk! Kirk, you're still alive - my old friend...

Still... 'old friend.' You've managed to kill just about everyone else. But like a poor marksman, you keep missing... the target.

Perhaps I no longer need to try. (he punches a few buttons and beams up Genesis, a top secret Federation project).

Khan, Khan, you've got Genesis...... but you don't have me! You were going to kill me, Khan!You're going to have to come down here! You're going to have to come down here!

I've done far worse than kill you. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you. I shall leave you, as you left me ... as you left her. Marooned for all eternity in the center of a dead planet -

(Khan's voice) Buried alive...

Buried alive.
