Thoughts on Seeing the New Star Trek Movie

Non-spoilery Thoughts:

-Wow. That was complicated. And crazy. Crazy like a fox.

-Spock rocks my socks.

Spoilery Thoughts (highlight to see):

-You know what's worse than being on a ship about to be eaten by a Romulan ship? Being pregnant and giving birth on a ship that's about to be eaten by a Romulan ship.

-Why does Kirk keep falling off crap? Seriously, he's like a dog on ice--whenever he jumps, he just sort of flops back over.

-I totally called the time travel plot. Not all the way, but I knew it was involved. (The Ahora thing, though, totally blind-sided me.)

-Seriously, how awesome is it that they've totally figured out a way to create a whole new series of movies that won't contradict the already decades-old established plotline? Freakin' awesome.

-Only one red shirt died? What the crap.

-Best line of the movie:
-Kirk: *sits in captain's chair*
-Spock: Get out of my chair.

-That green chick freaked me out. Even more than the chick with super-big eyes.

-Dude! Zulu with a sword = freak yeah!

I know it's geeky but I really want to see this movie. Do you watch Heroes? The guy who plays Spock is on there...

PJ: One of my spoilery comments is about Zulu...I had to go online to check how to spell his name!! :)

NotNessie: I watched the first series of Heroes, and I gotta say--I wish I hadn't. I think the actor did a great job with Spock, but there were a few moments when watching that I kind of cringed. When he first came on, the husband whispered to me: Siler's gonna eat Kirk's brains! And that totally killed it for me for a long time!!

Ashley: Hey, thanks!! :) That's so sweet!

I can't get in to Star Trek. I just think they look weird :D

DUDE. I loved it. I'm not a Trek fan, only knew some of the characters' iconic lines. But I'd totally watch this cast again. I don't want to spoil in the comments here, but yeah, Spock rocked my socks, too.

Loved your comments. :D

Kate: I've never been much of a Trek fan, but this movie totally converted me. 100%.

this new Star Trek installment was so good that I will now start remembering the name "J.J. Abrams" and look out for anything else he might have made

Unknown said...

Coffee Nomad: Absolutely JJ Abrams has done some brilliant stuff recently--he's a sure-fire name to bet on.
