I'm not much of a Trek-nerd, though I did watch episodes with the family once upon a life - my Father, among all his faults, is a sometimes geek - so I didn't have anything invested in the new Star Trek film. On Friday, as a reward to myself for getting a huge amount done at work, I bought some tickets to one of our two local theatres. Yeah, that's right. Fairbanks has two! How do you like that, Bethel?!
Okay, one of them is actually a bar that they sometimes show old movies in. And it's in Ester.
So, I watched the Trek movie, and I have to say, I liked it. It's not very... cerebral, I guess, is the word I'm looking for. It doesn't call for much deep thought. There's no monologue on the human condition, and the techno-babble is kept to a minimum. But it was a fun little movie, and if you get access to a theatre in the next few weeks-months, it's worth the ticket.
I like how they made everything so shiney. It was very Flash-Gordan.
