[personal profile] amazing_holly's first trip to the cinema being such an amazing film? PRICELESS.

So, yeah, we spent our lottery winnings on going to see the new Star Trek film. And at some bits Holly had to hold my hand. And at some bits we hugged. And at some bits we giggled. And when they hid behind Titan and came up through the clouds and you could see Saturn she said it's SATURN! I LOVE SATURN! But best of all was at the end when we were hugging each other and going YAYYYYYY!!! and Leonard Nimoy said Space. The final frontier....

Oh man, that was amazing. And as the credits rolled she started sniffling, and tears rolling down her face, and I asked her what was wrong. She said I'm sad it's over, mummy!

That's my girl.

Oh yeah, [personal profile] matgb and I really enjoyed it too. Might be a proper review later when I come down from my high.

:D

So I gather its okay then? I was shit scare to see this, simply because I like the original cast too much, oh and that Simon Pegg always looked like a Ken doll in his promo shots with that dark hair.

Wicked, I'm so pleased Shrubby loved it and also that it wasn't a big let-down for you. What an excellent film to be the first that she went to see.

I must get me and Dave out to see it although we're both rubbish at getting our arses in gear to actually go out and watch something (like we missed Watchmen which is Dave's favourite graphic novel, and didn't see batman either. Absolutely rubbish!)

she said "it's SATURN! I LOVE SATURN!"

I didn't hear her say that, must've been too close to you. Still, cool.

Do a proper review. Get better links than I managed.

That's great - both that the film's good (TOS is the only Star Trek I'm hugely fond of) and that she enjoyed it so much.

(I was reminded of her at the Who convention I went to the other week, BTW - there was a seven-year-old girl sat in the front row whose question to Sophie Aldred was "You were the first person I ever wanted an autograph of. Who was *your* first autograph?")

It's the first time in a long time I've genuinely enjoyed the entirety of a film...

All in all, a good 30th present from my parents :-)

My first ever trip to the cinema was to see Aladdin. Your daughter is FAR COOLER THAN ME.

There is an Archaeology Society trip to see the film on Thursday. AM SO GOING.

Her first movie theater film? *Awww*

May I just say (speaking as someone with no kids, mind) that you win at parenting. :-D

The Star Trek film is a shiny, shiny thing. I hope they keep the new cast chained to their contracts until they are old and gray and saggy, like the old cast.

The only fly in my ointment of loverliness was that Shatner wanted in, and they wouldn't let him. I understand their rationale, intellectually speaking, but still... :-(

It did in fact contain everything I've always loved and everything I've always hated about Star Trek*. The former far outweighed the latter.


*both of which I can sum up with "explosions in space."

Star Trek was certainly an enjoyable night out at the flicks, though I had a few niggles. As would be the case if it was a Doctor Who movie, there would be part of me sitting there thinking 'This is not right, it is a television series; I want to watch the next episode, next week, not another movie in two/three/whenever years!' Of course in the case of Star Trek, trips to the cinema to see the Enterprise going boldy where no one has ever gone before have been the norm since one was taken to see The Search For Spock.

But I guess that is kinda rambling from the point, the film for me aleast never consistently hit the heights of moments like the opening sequence where we see earliest moments of James T Kirk (Tiberius? what a goddamn awful name!) and the fate of Kirk Snr; Spock Prime's (to use the name of the action figure)first appearence to name two. One cannot help but think (and be amused) that the Kirk/Uhura dynamic was influenced by what we now know to be Nichelle Nicholis' views on Mister Shatner. Nero was no Kahn which is certainly a flaw that one can find in many of the Trek movies, the only other who has really ever come close for me was Alice Kirge's sexy Borg Queen. One was rather sad to see phasers reimagined in the fashion they were, the firefight on the Romulan ship towards the end lacking the customary beams but the way they twizzled around from blue to red and back again was kinda cool.

Ive just been to see it.

Oh. My God. It was ACE. And I loved the bit what Spock did at the end. Shiver down Spine moment.

Seen it, loved it.

And the movie WAS amazing!
