I still have a crush on Captain Kirk

For one of my mother's day presents, Reed took me to see Star Trek tonight and it was FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!! Seeing this movie took me back to when I first became a "Trekkie." I was probably 8 or 9 years old on one of our family excursions out west in our van and, being way back before DVD players, my family would listen to books on tape. My parents had checked out a few Star Trek books on tape from the library and one of them was called Faces of Fire. I actually don't remember what it was about but I remember being totally gripped by the story and thinking that Kirk, McCoy, Spock and the rest were sooooooo extremely cool. That began my Trekkie life with the shows (except for DS9. Ick), movies, books, and documentaries :) No conventions yet but maybe someday.

Needless to say, I was very excited to see the movie tonight. I actually paid full-price at a good movie theater (which I never do) and it was totally worth the $9. Musical score- awesome, visual effects- awesome, sound effects- awesome, acting- awesome (James T. Kirk = dreamy), little one liners put in for the fans of the original show- awesome. I'm going to see it again with my family. Then in the dollar theater. Then I will own the DVD (of which I am sure that the special features will be awesome).

Live Long and Prosper.

Yeah, it was awesome! especially after I got the feeling back in my arm after you ripped it off! I haven't seen you jump like that for... a very long time!

Was it you or Jamie who jumped every time the hand came out of the snow in Mulan?

Valerie said...

That was me. I probably still do.

At the bugs? I didn't jump... well, I don't think I did, but I started. We watched it with Jared's parents. I enjoyed it (I also enjoyed the popcorn and the sour candy we ate along with it).

Lucky you! I'll be lucky if I can get my boy to take me.

I'll go with you!
