The Floral Enterprise

I finally went to see Star Trek: Into Darkness today. You know what the best part about waiting for 2 weeks and then going to see it in the middle of the day is? There was nobody sitting in front of me, so it was like I had the theater all to myself.

As for the movie, I liked it, but a little less than the first one. And I was probably the only one in the audience who got all the nods to The Wrath of Khan – the original Star Trek is not that well-known here, and I only know Wrath of Khan from references in other stuff. I am no Trekkie, not by a long shot! Benedict Cumberbatch is awesome though (then again, when’s he ever not?) Also, it was a little weird seeing the Getty Center as the Starfleet HQ, because it’s so familiar and instantly recognizable, and yet it’s not used as an iconic landmark. It’s like seeing my own street on screen or something.

    wow, I thought you were going to say that the shirt was J crew or Anthropologie or something. it’s fantastic!

    My hubby is a big star trek fan. He’s watched all the different incarnations of the shows plus all the movies. In fact, he’s going to see the movie today with his friends. I just can’t get into the show/movies AT.ALL.

    And it’s not that I hate sci-fi or space stuff, because I do like Star Wars, but there’s just something about Star Trek that I don’t like.

    I really dig your shoes. I’m always on the lookout for Mary Jane style shoes with a sensible short heel.

    I too thought the film’s writing was not up to par with the previous film. Khan’s supposed to be your super intellectual mindgame villain. Why’d you cast Sherlock and then do no mind battles? And I walked out of the theatre still thinking, “YOU’RE KICKING IT WRONG.”

      Yeah, that was my problem with it too. I think the whole “John Harrison” thing was just thought up as a diversion for the fans; it’s hardly utilized in the movie at all – Khan gives up his identity so quickly and everything just feels… too simple.
