The ho-hum life of a nurse and massage therapist in New Hampshire.
Thank you for taunting me. I hope I get to see that movie, but I'm REALLY looking forward to T4 (Terminator Salvation). I really hope I get to see those movies...
TOO true about concession stands. Yet management gets REAL incensed if you try and smuggle in your own popcorn. Money-grubbing, clue-free bastids, they are.
Heh, heh...my pleasure, Chaos. ;)We saw trailers for both G.I. Joe AND Transformers, too. AWESOME.Dunno if I really want to see T4, though.Buck, we stopped buying movie food a long, long time ago. Now we try to eat a meal before we go...I'd feel too guilty to enjoy any food I might have smuggled in!
I have to wait for it on DVD because HHH isn't a Star Trek fan. I grew up on the original and watched all of the later incarnations, plus all the movies. When I was in college, we used to hit up the Wall to Wall Mart before hand and get candy and put it in our jacket pockets to sneak in. I HATE paying for food at the movies. So the mark up!
I was impressed by the movie. I went in not expecting much, as I've seen too many good childhood memories turned into 20-somethings garbage films. They kinda destroyed the continuity of the rest of the canon with the film, though.Just for giggles, my word verification was "commiab". Some sort of Soviet home exercise equipment, perhaps? :)
Blondie, I'd be too afraid to be caught with "outside" food! I'll tell you this, though: you don't have to be a Star Trek fan to enjoy this movie! It's just a great action film, too.John, I think that's why they went with the "alternate universe" thing, so that they couldn't fuck up the "real" story lines. I think it was a clever and effective way of telling a new story of Star Trek. LOVED Leonard Nimoy in this!"Order your Commi-Ab within the next twenty minutes, and we'll include Commi-Buns absolutely free!"
Eh, that struck me as a cheap gimmick to make it easier to do. Star Trek has been full of alternate universe stories, but has never strayed from the "main" reality. Still not sure about the whole Spock/Uhura thing, either. It just didn't seem right.I do agree that Leonard Nimoy did a great job.This post's WV: "enewings". Reminds me of a dyslexic Chekov.
As a die hard, part of me is skeptical. But the optimist in me is just darn glad that there is a new Star Trek movie out. I am looking forward to seeing it.I gave up movie theater food ages ago. Besides being too expensive, I always found that I was about to float away after drinking the barrel of soad.
John, I liked the Spock/Uhura thing, because it was so very unexpected. And didn't you ever get the sense, in TOS, that there might be some simmering passions there under the surface? Didn't Spock accompany Uhura when she sang a few times?Didn't bother me a bit!Buckskins, I promise you you'll enjoy it! Movie theater food is expensive crap, basically.
ROFLMAO!!!! Never heard it put that way, but they're right, the wallet gets no pleasure out of it!
Heh, it was my daughter who coined that phrase!(made me laugh, too...which is why it ended up on my blog!)
(Enough of the haikus, now back to the archives...)Saw the new Trek movie with Wife B. Plenty to enjoy.I agree with the one-word review.
You're reading my archives? Another poor, deluded soul...:D
