A definite must see for all fans
Glad you liked it! [;
I might see it, who knows? lol
THAT's where you got off to! And ya' didn't even invite me!
Good to know you enjoyed it.
Wow, was it a midnight showing Keith?
I have a flexi day booked in for tomorrow and DH is still on the 4 day week so we are going on a date! DH wants to see the movie....I'm not a Star Trek fan but I'm willing to give it a go.....especially if he takes me for a meal afterwards
OMG are you a trekkie as well
seriously mate I am beginning to worry that we are too alike now
Spock looks like he has bee portrayed superbly
How did they handle the whle futuristic but retro tech stuff??
We need a babysitter!!!!
Dr Spock ?
It was indeed
Spock was excellent as was Kirk actually. Both had the mannerisms of the original without going too far
There were scattered references to the past and future which all fitted in accurately from what I could see, even down to a mention for Jonathan Archer from Enterprise, now an admiral, and his beagle
OMG you ARE a treckkie
OK without google Keith what was the name of Archers Beagle?
cool glad you liked it mate, im a serious trekkie fan luv all the next gen films god how many times have i watched those
thx for posting, thats 2 films to go see that and wolverine
ooooohhhhh!!!!!!!! I can't wait. My hubby is working over the weekend in London and has said he might go and see it but the boys have made him swear we will do it as a family film. heeheeheehee!!!!!
It looks fantastic.
They did very well indeed really given that was always going to be hard.
The effects were excellent including a new funky transporter effect which was good. The control surfaces of the Enterprise have evolved. The original controls always looked SO dated given they're still supposed to be in our future and they did a good job of having new panels that looked futuristic without being all the way to next generation standards. Funny though, there were still radio shack (tandy for those of us old enough) light bulbs around the place for warnings
The scale of the ship itself was well done too! It really seemed massive inside, as it should be.
I think the only character I was so-so about was Scotty. I guess it was an impossible role for someone to live upto but I'm hmmmmmsome about that. Need to watch again
Diane is going tonight and I'm thinking we'll try and go next week.
Were there any guest appearances by the tribbles?
Wasn't Scotty played by the guy from the Shaun of the Dead (love that movie by the way)?
I was actually given old black and white Star Trek baseball cards from way back when, with the orginial characters.
Keith I feel a whole new wave of warmth toward you my friend it is only a true trekkie who would know the name of the cheese loving hound - Lisa and I are particularly into Voyager and DS9 but love em all. I have a collection of Star Trek Drs autographs ( can't believe I said that out loud)
It is great to see the franchise arising from the ashes once more
No 1 you have the bridge...
Mmmmmmm, Seven of Nine...
