To Boldly Go

HAVE YOU SEEN IT? No! Then don't read this!!!!
You have been warned!!!


I'm a fan of Star Trek, not a Trekkie (or Trekker), by still a fun. I admit I grew up with Star Trek: The Next Generation, and I vividly remember having my aunt and her boyfriend (who is now my uncle) babysitting me and us watching "The Cage", the original pilot for Star Trek, where I might add, the captain of the USS Enterprise was Pike, not Kirk. I remember Tribbles, and "Live Long and Prosper" and all about the "Wessals"
So walking into the cinema and sitting down, I had some expectation about how Star Trek (XI) would go. Boy was I wrong.
It was beyond expectations, it blew my freaking mind. Spock and Uhura (WTF) and Bones... oh sweet Bones.... "Dammit I'm a Doctor, not a physicist".... and Chekov ("Wictor, Wictor") This movie was beyond awesome.... there are no words to describe it's pure awesomeness.

Biggest Surprise: Zachary Quinto as Spock. I thought I'd never get over the fact that he was Sylar (in Heroes) but I have.... he will now and forever be Spock.... sorry Leonard.

Biggest Shock: Spock and Uhura.... WTF.... wait it's an alternative timeline.... oh I see! Winoma Ryder was in the movie..... who was she? Oh Spocks mother!

Biggest Letdown: I'm sorry.... but Mr Pine (aka Kirk) I just couldn't get past the fact that you'd made out with Lindsay Lohen (Just My Luck) maybe after multiple viewings....

Greatest Moment: Any scene featuring Scotty (Simon Pegg) and the little dude
