There are good films, bad films, and Cult films.  Well, two out of three ain't bad.  Today on GeekFest Rants Carlos will look at the  Michael Mann WWII horror film, The Keep.  Even the greatest of film makers have a skeleton in their closet and this one might be it for Michael Mann.  Even with a superb cast like Scott Glenn, Gabriel Byrne, Jürgen Prochnow, and Ian McKellen, this one misses the mark.  But is there something good about it that we might want to take a second look at? 

Then we'll look at Star Trek toy ships.  From brands like Micro Machines, Furuta, Hallmark, Hot Wheels, and Eaglemoss.  So many choices, so little money.
