to boldly go...

Hmmm... did you see Star Trek yet? My impressions as someone who occasionally watched Next Generation growing up but is only familiar with the original crew of the Enterprise because they're part of pop culture:
- I liked the following characters and thought the actors portraying them did a good job: Kirk, Scotty, the Russian kid, Sulu, McCoy.
- Pregnant, girly girl me cried at the beginning with the birth and the sacrificial love.
- I have heard that Z. Quintos (Spock aka Sylar) is a bit of a jerk in real life, and I'm a fan of Heroes so it was hard for me to like Spock or to feel any empathy for him at all.
- My friend, Jolene, was in the movie. She was on set for 3 months and ended up in 2 shots. It was, for lack of a better word, neat to see her up there on the big screen. (If you see it, she's not in the credits but has big blue eyes, a blonde bob and is unjustly attractive.) So part of me was thrilled about the movie just because I'm thrilled for Jo.

What did you think of it?

  1. I didn't go, but Bryon went to see it and thought it was good. He said it was funnier than he thought it would be.
