Star Trek movie

So, I saw the Star Trek movie at the movie theater last night.

Late shows here in Japan are cheaper than day shows (1200 yen ftw <3), but I almost missed the last train because I got lost in the parking garage connected to the movie theater, whilst trying to beat a hasty exit to the train station after the movie XD;. I was on the train platform with 2 minutes to spare, though, so I didn't have to hail a taxi ^^b.

Anyway, the movie was... good. This is one of those instances where I've heard everyone and their grandmother lauding the gloriousness of this movie, so when I actually saw it, it was too easy to find faults. It was entertaining, though, and has definitely been the best Star Trek movie so far <3. Spock and Kirk were pretty hot for each other, which is how it always has been and should be XDD. I was pretty freaked out by how much the guy they hired to play Spock looked like Leonard Nimoy!Spock, though! It was uncanny <3.

The only thing that REALLY bugged me, was that you could see the skull-cap thing they'd pulled on over the Spock-actor's original hair in every close-up of his face -.o;. Did anyone else notice that? I couldn't stop staring at the skull-cap in every Spock-scene XDD. I guess I'm just a little heart broken they didn't ACTUALLY give the actor a Spock haircut XDDD. It's a shame.

Anyway, it didn't live up to the hype 100%, but I think if I put it out of my mind, and watch again in a few months, I'll go crazy over it XDD. I've watched Star Trek my whole life, and I'm glad they've made a movie that make even non-Trekkies excited over it ^o^. For perhaps the first time in history, Star Trek has become fashionable. So, SO weird XD;.

OMG I saw the movie on Sunday night~~! ;-D
I am also a life long trekkie. Wut. My dad was sooo obsessed with it, and so it's in my blood. In my subconscious mind, even...

I really enjoyed the movie, actually, but Spock... something about him.... bothered me. I'm not sure why. I also noticed that line, but I couldn't tell if it was the wig line or a natural crease in his forehead (which creeped me out, if it was the case...)

I was most surprised that my boyfriend really enjoyed it. He had never seen star trek before in his life. he didn't know anything about it. he was protesting the whole time before we went. Then, after the movie, he was all fanboying Kirk. (.....)

I know that Kirk/Spock is the ORIGINAL slash, but... the whole time I couldn't stop thinking Sulu/Chekov!! OMG D-: I love them both! And just remember how fast Chekov ran to beam Sulu and Kirk up. And you know it wasn't out of loyalty for Kirk, since he didn't even know Kirk at that time. IT WAS TOTZ FOR SULU <333 I don't care if Chekov is "jailbait" wuteve. XD Still amazing plus mentally he's fine, amirite?? *rambles*

It sounds like we had a similar Star Trek upbringing XD. Most of the time I spent with my father as a child, was in the living room watching Star Trek XD;.

That line on Spock's forehead was definitely a skull cap. The actor probably had some other acting role where he needed normal hair, so they put the cap on. But they didn't hide it very well, I think.

Lol, are you worried about your boyfriend fangirling more than you are XD? Seems like PERFECT SITUATION to me, especially with your hobbies <3.

Sulu/Chekov... <3. I didn't think of it, but I'm intrigued ^o^. Do you have access to such fanfiction? *goes to google* Now that you mention it, underaged!Chekov x Sulu is definitely a cute couple XDD.

*cough* chekov_sulu *coughcough* XD
That and ontd_startrek has some really funny macros. XD;;

I think that the Spock guy is also in Heroes. I don't watch it at all, but my sister loooooves him. (IDGI.........)

And yes. I have fond memories of Star Trek and LOTR from my childhood. XD Though watching Star Trek in English is always somewhat LOL. Though it should be LOL the other way around, since English is the original voices. (OMG Patrick Stuart<333)

*has officially read most everything at the chekov_sulu comm now XD;;;* GLORIOUS, I say! Where's your Sulu x Chekov contribution to the fandom?

I saw a couple episodes of Heroes one time, and I think you're right... Spock's actor was some evil guy named Sylar, I think. I'm not so fond of the actor, but he translated interestingly into a Spock.

Did you watch Star Trek in Japanese o.o? I imagine that would be incredibly lol for me XDD.
