As star Trek Into Darkness has yet to be release in the States I am issuing a spoiler warning for this post.
I will be briefly discussing a major spoiler so If you don’t want to know, don’t read any further.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
We had an early start today with an academic mentoring meeting with Murron’s form tutor.
Despite Murron’s protestations she is actually doing really well and is on target with just about everything.
We came away with a few tips to hopefully help her out a bit.
Shortly after coming back home I was picked up by my brother and then on our way to Milton Keynes to see Star Trek Into Darkness.
The first time for my brother who hasn’t even seen the first film!! and the 3rd time for me.
What I will say this time round is that the sound was a lot better. Our local cinema needs a serious refurb.
I also noticed a couple of small points.
JJ has always stated that this film was for everyone, even if you haven’t seen the first re-boot film or any of the original series and movies.
For the most part this is correct, however I noticed two points that did need a bit of back history that we simply don’t get with this film.
Firstly, Spock Prime.
It is not explained in this film how Spock Prime is in this time line. You needed to see the first film to understand this.
Secondly, the ‘reveal’ of the villain.
For any fan this was a brilliant moment but for anyone who hasn’t seen the original series or movies, the moment ‘Harrison’ reveals he is actually ‘Khan’ loses all impact if you have no knowledge of Khan from the original series.
There must have been a few people who simple said ‘who?’
That said, this still does not detract from the fact that this film is an exciting roller coaster of a ride from start to finish.
Right, I think I am all Star Trekked out now.
Roll on the BluRay release.
So, came home and settled on the computer for a while to catch up on Tumblr.
Things have gone a little crazy for karl Urban’s new TV series, ‘Almost Human’
After the release of the 4 minute trailer yesterday, we are now inundated with official photos and a behind the scenes look with JJ Abrams.
I think I have found my new obsession!
So here is JJ explaining himself…..
And here are some ‘cherry picked’ images of Karl looking his usual incredible self.
I SOLEMNLY SWEAR TO ‘TRY’ TO AVOID GETTING OVERLY OBSESSED WITH THIS SHOW OVER THE SUMMER
I may fail miserably but I will ‘try’!
It’s due out in the Autumn run of new shows that usually start around the end of September.
I don’t have a date yet but I’ll let you know when I do.
