Beam Me Up Scotty

Picture credit: here
Went to watch the Star Trek movie midnight last night with the hubster. Bestnya!!!! Seriously. I am not kidding you. Please do yourself a favour and go watch it this weekend! Go, go, go watch it.. You'll not regret it.. Oh, btw, if you want the whole plot you can get it here

Truthfully, I was never a Trekkie. But that's just it.. Anybody who doesn't know an iota of knowledge about Star Trek can really enjoy the film.  Cuba sahaja tengok kehenseman Christopher Whitelaw Pine yang walaupun tak nampak familiar tapi masih meruntun jiwa. And Sylar as Spock - that's such coolness!! Sangat secocok! And they strike a very similar resemblance to the original Spock and Kirk, don't you think? (Sila lihat dibawah)

What I liked about the movie? **Caution: Don't read if you don't want a spoiler..** 
  • Sangat fast paced - didn't get a chance to be bored or even yawned. Even though it was an 11:55pm viewing and it didn't finish until it was 2:10am. The fighting action was comprehensible, I don't feel overwhelmed by the special effects. It looked soooo natural.. (Sorry, ya.. Saya tertidur dengan nyenyaknya during the viewing of Transformers last time. )
  • The casts were awesome. I especially welcomed hunky Eric Bana as Captain Nero, the Romulan baddie, Harold from "Harold & Kumar"-fame as Sulu, can I mention the awesome twosome Kirk and Spock again?, there's even Winona Ryder as Spock's human mom. 
  • There's also comedy -  a lot of subtle comedy.. I love that 17-year old Russian genius who handled the Public Announcements. He even muddled up the voice pasword thingy --> Wictor-Wictor... hahahahaha.. 
  • The old Spock has a major role too.. Definitely made more than a cameo, the great Leonard Nimoy did.. Loved it when he said, "I am NOT our fathers" to younger Spock. But, I just can't keep my eyes from his jaw area. Terganggu fokusku kerana melihat pergerakan gigi palsunya.. hihihihihiihi 
  • Montgomery "Scotty" Scott - the person that catchy phrase "Beam me up, Scotty" was directed to. He's recruited in this film! So, sweet lah and soo gelut too.. 
  • The hero is not the typical goody-goody kind of hero. He is a rebel and he rocks my world!! hihihihihi
  • It's a new beginning. Forget what you know about the old Star Trek and the legacy left by William Shatner and the gang. It is the ultimate way to chart their own journey and a whole load of new adventures.. A whole new possibilities of sequels and series.. Me likey..  
Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Aah.... can't wait for the continuation of this. Ada series tak? Will this finally turn me into a Trekkie? Beam me up, Scotty. ;)

Macam best ni. Wolverine agak bosan sebab ada romance yang tak menarik.

Money back guarantee, babe. Serious. Must make that trip.. ;)

i pray tom hanks' haircut is better in angels n demons. tapi da vinci code is kind of disappointing as compared to he stunning book!

kay ,
hahahaha on the haircut comment. I do agree though, the film didn't do justice to the book.We got the special ed illustrated version for both da vincci code and angels&demons and i am super excited ni.. Can't wait already.. Maybe tak sempat nak pergi midnight this week - too busy! :( But, hopefully will catch it before next week starts!
