Forgot to mention, I went to see Star Trek the other day. It wasn’t too bad. The bad guy was pretty lame and there were some definite child-friendly moments, but on the whole an enjoyable action film.
It’s quite funny seeing the development of the characters, and it’s different enough to give your average Trekkie the vapors, which is always fun. After watching it I read a few reviews which made me laugh. I remember the original Star Trek series as being really cool when I was young, but if you watch is now it is really bad, but people still talk about it like it’s amazing. I had a ZX81 when I was a kid and it was brilliant, but I couldn’t be bothered to use one now. Move on! The latest film brings everything up to date. Full of action and no substance, just the way Hollywood like it.
Before the film they played the trailer for G.I Joe and Terminator 4. G.I. Joe looked like it could be fun, but Terminiator looked completely awesome.
Another film I forgot to mention was Watchmen, which I went to see ages ago. To summarize it in a single word, “Toilet”. Note the capital “T”. The trailer with the Smashing Pumpkins track was amazing. The film was not. I remember 2 good sequences in it and that was it. As for the blue guy, all I can say is Dude, put some underwear on! I really don’t need to full frontals of a guy who’s blue and glowing on a massive cinema screen. It put me right off my popcorn. 🙂
Still haven’t got round to seeing Wolverine. Maybe when I get back from this trip.
