I picked up Jo and Janet and we went to see the new Star Trek at the local Odeon. It wasn’t Ann’s type of film so she stayed at home, cooking.
More information here on the film at the IMDB site.
Well what can I say? A really superb re-interpretation (or reboot, to use the common terminology) of the Star Trek franchise. JJ Abrams has managed to create a storyline that is sure to please existing fans and those who weren’t even born when Star Trek first appeared in 1966!
An full-on action film from start to finish (with a small flat-spot for me around half-way through) with all the main actors bringing the original characters back to life with uncanny accuracy.
Any disappointments or surprises? Just one: the romance between Spock and Uhura which unless it’s part of a broader story arc, seemed unnecessary and for me, completely out of context.
(lose half-a-star for the kissing bit between Spock and Uhura – yuk!!)
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
