It occurs to me the last post could be perceived as a bit negative, descending as it did in to a rant about Star Trek when it was meant to be an ‘ooh look, I’ve got a new laptop’ affair. So I thought, in an effort to redress the balance, I’d post a list of things I liked about the film because overall I did genuinely enjoy it (I just would have enjoyed it more had it made a little bit of sense):
The bright colours
The short skirts
That they didn’t move too far away from the original uniforms and hence lose the bright colours and short skirts
That green woman in her underwear
Kirk and Uhura in the bar
Kirk’s massive hands
Spock getting the girl
Did I mention the green woman in her underwear?
McCoy generally – more of him please
Whoever chose the underwear for the green woman; because, you know, it must be really difficult to get the right colour to match that skin tone and it worked perfectly as far as I was concerned.
Other things I want to be positive about:
The Ten Doctors – I know, I know – you’ve probably all read it and it finished a few days back; but I wanted to wait until it had finished before I linked to it, just in case it went shit at the end.
I liked it. It was great.
Confessions of a Superhero – I haven’t seen this yet, but I want to – it looks really interesting.
Oh and then there’s this BBC Look East New Bulletin– tonight’s, I think. The link should work today, whether it still works tomorrow is anyone’s guess. You’re looking to skip forward over the gloom and doom until you get to about 13.30
Now go about your day in a more positive manner.
