Star Trek

The first words running through my head on repeat after I skipped (and bounced) out of the cinema were, in the words of Sheldon (from Big Bang Theory)...LEONARD NIMOY.

I mean, dudes, LEONARD NIMOY. As in:

That is all.

Okay, not really: without his facial hair I totally did not recognize Eric Bana since he went from this to this. Typical Star Trek: use super famous actors and bury them in their characters - I TOTALLY APPROVE *thumbs up*

Though I could never see Eric as the typical villain - he was a driller/miner who saw everything and everyone he loved destroyed and was then handed the opportunity and power to prevent it ALL from even happening - it would corrupt most people. So I couldn't really see him as a villain per se.

Then there was the fact that everytime I saw Zachary Quinto, part of my mind was going "dude, Sylar's halloween costume is SPOCK, how cool is that?" So...couldn't really embrace him in the role. In comparison, it was much easier to accept Chris Pine, who wasn't brilliant, but was fine as Kirk :)

the het!romance was odd especially the kiss in the transporter room - though I knew in the future Kirk would look back and want to be the one kissing Spock, MWHAHAHAHAHA.

I love the part where Spock tells Kirk to get out of his chair LOLOLOL

And now I should probably repeat, LEONARD NIMOY ♥

But total fanservice, especially the ending voice over. And I admit, I squeaked and snickered and wheezed and whooped (softly) all the way through. It was like a two-hour season premiere for a Star Trek TV series reboot.

My first thought when it began were, oddly enough, I HAVE to catch up on Battlestar Galactica. Oh and rewatch Voyager - whatever the trekkies may say about the show, I still love it to pieces, especially Janeway, the Doctor and Seven of Nine XD

Edit: I can't help wishing this WAS a two hour opener for a reboot of Star Trek, premiering on the sci-fi channel. After what they did wih BSG, I'd love to see where they'd take ST.
When people compared it to last year's Iron Man, I expected more humor (though I did end up snickering through so many bits) it was AWESOME in its own way. Summer blockbuster movie season has officially started! (Origins doesn't count since it leaked and was watched *whistles*)

Next up: TERMINATOR, WOOT. This years Batman ('cause its going to be all dark and serious and kick ass)...though minus Heath ;_;

OMG, which day is HBP supposed to come out? I'VE FORGOTTEN, EEP
I KNOW!!!! like I didn't expect to laugh so much but alkasjlasjlasjlasdjlds amazing ajsdlka want to keep Chekov in my pocket foreverhbkjasldkads

Yeah I'm not a huge terminator fan, I might end up watching it if friends drag me though.

JULY. 20 something? because I'm sure theyr'e screening it at Azkatraz.
Simon Pegg brought humor without it being corny and I loved him for it - and KARL URBAN ♥
URBAN!!! He was fantastic. I'm an old Trekker and I just loved this. It totally lived up to my expectations. I don't watch "Heroes" so the Spock character only bothered me because the actor's face was a little too emotional?/animated?... but I love how they made a new AU from canon.

I was pretty worried that the actor doing Spock would ruin the movie for me, but I would have only cut one sneer.

And the kissing.

But other than that, I was impressed by his performance. Possibly due to low expectations, but nevertheless.

I fucking loved Simon Pegg as Scotty. Would have loved more screen time from him.
Omg, I just got back from watching Star Trek! IT WAS SO GOOD! I thought even beyond the characters the graphics were pretty awesome. Yeah, the plot line wasn't the strongest, but it was still enough that I found it interesting!
