I've got a sin to confess. I watched Twilight.

Let's sum it up by stating that the film itself was the severest punishment...:-) Haven't seen anything so dumb for ages (though I did have a few jolly good laughs - esp. the lion/lamb line and the whole glitter scene was quite hillarious).

I went and saw the new Star Trek today, and it was fucking awesome!!!  The special effects were well worth the 30 mil they paid for the CGI.  I think they did an excellent job casting Zachary Quinto as Spock and (can't think of his name), as Capt. Kirk.  I love the Scotty character, (I'm bad on names, but I remember him from Shawn of the Dead).  It was really well written, well acted, and it had a few comic moments.  Too bad in this reality that Vulcan is destroyed, but I can see this being a whole new franchise of Star trek movies.

Well it's not our Vulcan, remember it's an alternative trek universe.  This is why the writers did this so they could change things.  Not stick to canon.

I went see it again with my sister and her husband yesterday and she thought it was awesome too.  And unlike her sister who grew up on trek and used to attend conventions and completely mad on it, she is not.  So JJ Abhams has done a good job pulling in people who are not fans.

I really do think it's a good movie and after following the making of it since 2006 it was good to finally see it.  I do have things I'm not happy about, for example Vulcan is a red planet and should really have a red sky as it always had but suddenly now it's blue.

Oh well I'll have to over look that now.

I was always right about Zach playing Spock and well as Karl Urban who played McCoy.  Not keen on Simon Peggs 'Scotty'  wrong casting.  Ask Pliff he'll tell you the same thing and he's a huge fan of his.

The first time I saw Anton Yelchin who plays Chekov he really pissed me off but yesterday when I saw it a second time I actually think he's ok. 

Of course for me one of the hightlights of the movie was seeing the original Spock but then I am a Nimoy fan.

I want try and see it one more time and in a Imax cinema but our nearest one is near London, well Waterloo and quite a walk train station for.  For others it might not be but then they don't have conidition I have.

The sound track is excellent.  Michael Giacchino is a good composer.  I really like his music for Lost too.

Back to the actors Bruce Greenwood was excellent as Captain Pike.

I love the fight scene on the drilling rig with Sulu.  It was very well
corographed.

I debated long and hard about just what thread this belonged in and finally decided that because it's primarily movie related, it belonged here.

Next time you settle down with your popcorn and extra large drink, you might want to know where the best time is during the movie to make a restroom break without missing any of the important parts of the movie. Well, someone has created a website just for that! Run Pee.com   http://runpee.com/#app=3e1a&e1bd-RunPeeID=0.0.0&d096-selectedIndex=0

That's funny, the only thing is, you can't really set a specific time as to when your bladder says, "I'm full."

Went and saw Night at the Museum, Battle for the Smithsonian. Not as good as the first movie, some really stupid parts, but it was fun seeing some of the same characters come back to life.

I saw the trailer earlier on this year and thought it did not look as good as the first one.  But often this happens with sequels sadly.  It's like Jurrassic Park the first of was really good but the second one was ok and the third one was dire.

But if I get a change to see this second movie I will as it has a lot of good actors I like in it.

I watched Taken on pay-per-view. It wasn't a bad movie. Liam Neeson's has the lead role and his daughter gets kidnapped just moments after landing in France and is taken by the Albanian Mafia to be sold into prostitution/white slavery. He immediately heads to France after she calls him as she's going through the kidnapping and he shoots his way through alot of people til the end when he finally does rescue her.

Just got back from seeing 'The Proposal' with Sandra Bullock.  It was really good, I enjoyed it very much, even though I like action/adventure over chick flicks.  She plays a mean bitch boss who's personal assistant Andrew is always complaining about.  Well, she's from Canada and about to be deported, which means she can no longer work in America for this high falutin' publishing company, because she didn't completely fill out all her work visa information.  So in front of her big bosses she says that she and Andrew are engaged and going to see his parents that weekend.  Her parents are dead and she's basically been on her own since she was 16, and his family welcomes her and slowly her icy heart melts.  She made a business deal with Andrew that she would make him an Editor if he holds up his part of the bargain in marrying her so she can stay in America, so she's basically blackmailing him.  They tell his family they're engaged and his Mom and grandmother welcome her and plan the wedding for the end of that very weekend.  She gets to feel what a family is like and slowly her and Andrew are actually becoming attracted to one another.  After his Mother and Grandmother have a surprise wedding planned and she's standing at the alter, and the immigration agent is there to make sure this is all real, but he's hoping to score that it won't be real.  She finally confesses at the alter that it was all fake, that she was blackmailing him and she leaves to go back to New York before heading back to Canada.  Andrew by then realizes he really does love her and chases her down to New York where he does actually propose and she realizes she loves him too.

Apparently, Liam Neeson was seriously considered for James Bond some years ago.  After seeing Taken, I kinda find myself wishing they'd picked him.

I dunno about that.  I just don't get the right feel for him to be Bond.  I've watched the two newest movies, Casino Royale and Quantam of Solace, that the latest blonde has done, and I just don't like Bond as a blonde.  Plus Liam's voice is so perfectly suited for being a creepy psychotic killer, that I think I'd like to see him in more of a psycho thriller type movie.  I'm kind of surprised at how much I liked Taken, and thought he did really well in it.

I think I'm starting to become a fan of Jason Statham!  Whoah is that guy hot!  I watched Transporter 3 on PPV and really love the action and humor, reminds me a bit of the Jackie Chan movies.  Really a good series to watch, especially if you like alot of action.
