Sorry. I promise this won't last long, but right now I'm still in love with this movie. I was shocked at how good it was!! Really, it's been a long, long, LONG time since a movie blew me away like this. Everything was so...awesome. And since today is Picture Day, I decided to let myself go ;)
But, you know me. I'll get over this ridiculous obsessiveness within a couple of weeks, a month at the most. Remember my little freak-out over Darth Vader in February or whatever? I'm telling you, I'll see this kind of stuff and go crazy, and then I'll go back to normal. But I still love it. Like, I mean, really, Darth Vader is awesome, right?
The weirdest part is, I don't think of myself as being a SciFi kind of person. Like, at all. Most of it bores me and annoys me. And yet, I love Star Wars and Star Trek...*sigh* I am a mystery even to myself ;)
So, Captain Kirk is pretty awesome. He's probably my favorite character. (There's a shock, right? But at least I didn't fall in love with the villain this time.)
The casting for this was unbelievable!! All the characters look just like younger versions of the original guys (and girl). Spock was definitely the best match, but Captain Kirk was great, too.
There's lots of action in the movie, the plot was great, the acting was good, there was some really funny lines (LOLS), and everything was just awesome!! Everyone should see this movie. Lizzy (my little sister) even liked it!!! *gasp* And she HATES this kind of stuff. Well, she likes Star Wars okay. But usually all the fighting and stuff she doesn't like. There was a little bit of a guy screaming, but I got through that and it didn't bother me as much as I was afraid it might. *shrug* I guess Star Trek is just that awesome.
'Kay. I'll shut up now. If I can. You should go see the movie. It's really good.
P.S. Checkoff (however you spell it) was absolutely *adorable*. In the picture with the old and the new people together, he's the second guy on the bottom row.
