Tell me, did Venus blow your mind?



I present to you a Geek girl's brief review of Star Trek 2009:

I cried at the beginning. I cried at the end. Hell, I almost cried when I heard the voice of the computer. I smiled when Grunny yelled at his "stepson," and when Amanda showed up on the bridge. For all my schoolgirl crush on Zachary Quinto, I absolutely wanted to kiss Simon Pegg. And Karl Urban...damn. I clapped and cheered into my empty theater when the credits hit the screen, and stayed in my seat long enough to blow the Roddenberrys a kiss.

Solo or not, I am *so* very glad I saw Star Trek today. I guess I didn't realize how much I needed that.

It looks like I'll FINALLY get to see it on Friday. :)

It was exactly what I wanted to see when me and my sister and my best friend Danny Mays went to the theater at Christmastime, 1979.

Instead, we almost got kicked out of the theater for yelling at the screen, the movie sucked so bad.

I am VERY glad I didn't feel the same way.

I think I was inelegant in what I said: I loved the new Star Trek movie. It was exactly the Star Trek movie I wanted to see when I saw the first Trek movie as a kid, is what I meant.

Ah...gotcha. Yeah, I was confused. I'm glad you liked it then. It was fun, wasn't it?

They don't play the credits all the way through at the theatre in this town, so I haven't seen the Roddenberrys. I will watch all the credits when I buy the DVD.

I cried all over the place too. Even the second time I watched it. And I'm probably going at least one more time, and will cry all over everything again. :)

I want to fly to Ireland just so I can watch this movie again with you. We can act like raging idiots together. :)

I have no other plans this weekend! I'll make up the guest room for you! :)

"If only, if only," the woodpecker cried.

I do really want to come to Ireland, though. It's been like this weird craving for a few months now. If you ever stop being busy enough to breathe, I promise to bring you Pop Tarts...
