On the weekend Hilary, Jess and I went to see Star Trek: Into Darkness. Apart from having a really vague title, it was really, incredibly good. I don’t know if I’m just a massive nerd, but I liked how much Spock screen-time there was, and I liked how Benedict Cumberbatch essentially dominated the film with his awesomeness. Even before you could see him you could hear his deep voice, and we all had quite the Paradise Lost sort of complex going on, where you find yourself rooting for the bad guy for so long because he’s so intriguing, so interesting, so puzzling, and so outrageously handsome. Observe:
Chris Pine, also known as Captain Kirk, the resident heartthrob (right William Shatner?)
And then we have Zachary Quinto as Spock.
If you haven’t seen Star Trek yet, and this hasn’t convinced you, I’m not surprised. But I will say, you should see it. Really. It’s an incredibly action film with the most compelling villain I’ve seen in a blockbuster movie in a long time. You’ll thank me for it later.
