So…Star Trek was nice, I enjoyed it. Twice.
As a non-Trekkie, I cannot judge if it was accurate in relation to the origional series. I thought the plot was clever, watching it the second time, the time travel Spock concept was much more clear.
Really, the biggest critique I have for the film was One line Spock said. It was cheesebal. As captain Kirk is preparing to beam back onto the Enterprise, he says to Spock, “you cheated”. To which Spock replies, ” I learned it from an old friend.” Cringe!!!!!!! Oh Spock. A wise or even smug look would have been much smarter at this moment. If I knew you were going to say anything, I would guess it was this. And if I know what you are going to say, I will just sit at home and think about it and not spend ten bucks listening to you spout obvious lines.
But, overall, I thought it was a great film.
So, no internet yet. This is my first real attempt at WordPress via the phone. I hate it. However, I am going on four weeks sans Internet. A first since, ah, 1997? 98? Somewhere in there.
I still have a very flakey laptop. I’ve turned my long neglected novel into a screenplay (not done yet). But, I have narrowed my choice of directors down to two people. Too ambitious? I’ve bought and am reading Five books, and have spent much time making the new place outstanding. Have I mentioned how outstanding my new place is? You’ll love it.
