Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Star Trek: Into Darkness

Star Trek: Into Darkness

Just saw Star Trek Into Darkness this morning.

Loved it!  I can't say much because I don't like to spoil anything.  But I loved it.   

I hear there is a bit of a hubhub around some people getting their noses out of whack because of the "alternate universe" they're using.  Well, I'll be up front and say right now:  I don't care.  I love it all.  I love the old original series.  I love The Next Generation.  I love Voyager.  I've seen every film, even the really truly bad ones.  I've even read some of the novels.

And I don't care in the remotest sense of the word about any changes or alterations Abrams' has made.   I love that he's made it more "user-friendly" and more relatable to everyone.  I love that these new films are bringing in new fans.  I love it. 

Besides, there is so much fanservice in these new films, I'm giddy as a schoolgirl watching them.  Yep, downright giddy :)

Cumberbatch is a sensation in this film -- but everyone else acquitted themselves just fine.
