Some of you who know me, you might know that I’m a bit of a closet Trekkie these days. I used to attend science fiction conventions in Denver when I was in college, but can’t say I’ve gone since then. I had a chance to get the autographs of George Takei and Michael Dorn, along with others that I can’t remember where I put away. And I listened intently when they spoke live upon those stages.
Some punk little version of Kirk driving a car into a ravine? The same punk riding a motorcycle past the site where they’re building the Enterprise? Was JJ channelling Thelma and Louise mixed with Top Gun?
And what’s with Uhuru ripping off her shirt? There’s been much debate whether Nichelle Nichols is yelling or not about that.
And then over at Geek Tyrant, I saw this today and it made me laugh. So I thought I’d share it. 🙂
I’m starting to worry about this film. I’m interested. I want to see it, but there’s this feeling of dread building each time I see more footage. Will it be worth the agony? We’ll have to wait and see…
To say that this is a unique cast would be an understatement. I’m excited about Pegg & Cho as Scotty & Sulu… Don’t know Yelchin or Saldana… Zachary Quinto is great as the evil Sylar in Heroes… And I can’t say I’ve ever seen Chris Pine. So it’s a mixed bag.
But JJ Abrams has done interesting things in the past. MI:3 was the last movie I saw of his and it could’ve been renamed “Run Tom (Cruise), Run!” because that’s pretty much all Tom’s character did. But I liked the first season or two of Alias, so maybe this will work out.
Anyway… That’s it for now. Until next time… Boldly go where no one has gone before!
