I love Star Trek. To be honest, I haven’t even seen the original series in over 10 years I’m sure but I do remember that I used to really love the show. I was always one to be fascinated by everything astronomical. I loved learning about stars, planets, and the universe in general…in fact, I still do. It’s the very thing that always used to draw me to the Star Trek series.
Doesn’t the shape of the Sydney Opera House remind you of something? Hmmm…I wonder what?
I think that was the perfect venue for the world premiere of Star Trek.
As we all know by now, I’ve just started off my summer vacation and the first movie that I saw for the summer was none other than…Star Trek! I must admit: I had no real interest in seeing this movie. I saw the trailer but it hadn’t sparked any sort of interest…I mean, sure I was mildly curious, but not enough to be dying to watch the film. Then my friends were saying that they were going to watch it and I went with them! Mainly because I hadn’t hung out with them in awhile and I kept hearing about how great Star Trek is and how well it was doing in the larger continents. So I figured, why not?
Now I must say that I’m completely in love with the film. The humour, visual effects and, not to mention, the cast, all made the movie as epic as it was. I have a friend who once told me: “Bad trailers translates to great movie. Great trailers -> not-so-great movie.” That’s probably right. Seriously. That movie had me cracking up. A good dose of action and comedy. What more could I ask for? I’m really enjoying the beginnings of my summer.
And, of course, I love Zachary Quinto! He is an amazing actor and, in my opinion, he played the role of Spock wonderfully. I should also admit that he was part of the reason for being mildly curious about the movie when I saw him in the trailer. I am quite a Sylar fan, of course. =D
