May the summer blockbuster live long and prosper!

Listening to: 'Jump in the Pool' by Friendly Fires [Friendly Fires]

Hopefully the title of this post should give you an idea of the content. If not, tsk tsk.

So yeah, a friend was visiting yesterday and we were having dessert at Pizza Express (the Chocolate Glory is divine, btw) at 10.50pm when we realised that neither of us had seen the Star Trek movie yet. We found out that there was a 11pm screening at the cinema about a mile away. After what seemed like ages trying to sort out the bill (do waitresses not understand the meaning of the word 'quick'?) and walk-running all the way to the cinema, we reached our seats a few mins into the car ads. Excellent timing.

And excellent movie. I know I said I enjoyed Wolverine but I'm sorry, Star Trek just annihilated Wolvy's ass. I think I'm gonna have to try and watch it again on the IMAX 'cos that screen just wasn't big enough. The story was what I've come to expect from Star Trek, the visuals were awesome, and my funny bone was properly tickled (except for one line from Uhura that I won't spoil for you - you can barf when you hear it in the movie). And of course...such hotness! I mean how fiiiiine is Chris Pine?!?!? (tee hee it rhymes :D ) I'm not usually a fan of blue eyes but ooooh. And Zoe Saldana is hawt. And I must say Zachary Quinto (I'm not into Heroes so I'm not in the habit of calling him Sylar) made a very good Spock. And aww Simon Pegg's Scottish accent was so cute! Sigh I'm a sucker for accents.

But yes, go watch it. NOW! And then get ready for...
  • Terminator Salvation
  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
  • Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs
  • Public Enemies
  • BrĂ¼no
Oh boy, is this a good summer for movies or what?!


  1. ah a fellow movie buff! :D yes im hearing very good things abt 'star trek'.. and PR!!! it's "Revenge of the Fallen", not "revenge of the machines'...!! :P

    and ah u heard of "public enemies"... that looks really really neat...!

  2. Thousand apologies, G :D Fixed it...not sure why I put 'machines' mind works in mysterious ways :S

    And hello, Public Enemies has Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Channing Tatum...there's no way I'm missing out on such lusciousness! :D And yes the movie looks good.

  3. It was nice how Abrams put all the 'right' characters in the right places by the end :) he really needs to cut down on the lens flares though. Excellent film Star Trek. Wolvy totally got phasered. Had my doubts on the younger cast initially, totally dispelled now. And this is coming from someone who religiously watched Star Trek:TOS & Star Trek:TNG & Star Trek:Enterprise xD

    (Yes, i watched it & im sure you can figure out how :P xD)

  4. didn't know about the last two.. But I'm certainly waiting for Ice age and Transformers..:)

    Watched Fast and Furious and thought it was good.. but DragonBall wasn't that great..:S


Speak now, or forever hold your peace (well not really)!
