We’re Getting a New ‘Star Trek’ Movie!

Yep, it’s happening. Paramount is making a new Star Trek movie which is set to come out in 2023. I can’t believe I’m kind of excited but after watching the Abrams trilogy, which I enjoyed more than the Sequel Trilogy (sorry Star Wars), I have to admit. I’m kind of pumped.

Who will the movie star? No idea, but I hope it’s good.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘Star Trek’: What a Ride!

The other day I revisited Star Trek: Into Darkness for the first time in seven years and to my great surprise I enjoyed the heck out of it. There was so much I had forgotten and it’s safe to say, I was riveted. After finishing that film my sister and I were so intrigued with the Star Trek sequel that we wanted to see the first one…so we did…yesterday.

Wow, wow, wow!!!! I have to admit, I’m not a Star Trek enthusiast and yet even this movie had me losing my mind and crying way more often that I expected.

J.J Abrams is the king of starting great stories and Star Trek is no exception. The amount of heart he manages to throw into this action-packed film is nothing short of spectacular. The relationship between Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk and Zachary Quinto’s Spock was so perfectly fleshed out and deliciously contentious. There was so much drama, so many stakes, and a jaw-dropping surprise that had me freaking out like when I watched The Force Awakens.

Star Trek is like a rollercoaster that doesn’t stop once it tips over that hill. It just loops and loops and throws you around with that singular slight pause in the middle that makes you think the ride is over before throwing you into another dip that leads you screaming and holding on for dear life until the ride eventually comes to an end. I just couldn’t get enough of it.

I’ve heard of Star Trek for years and now that I’ve watched it I understand why. It’s pretty fantastic.

I’ll give it 97 out of 100 and 4.5 out of 5 stars. I would’ve given it a perfect score but its unnecessary partial sex scene that I skipped in the first thirty minutes of the movie was not needed at all. We get the idea that he’s a lady’s man, we didn’t need to see it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

A Movie Ranking: Chris Pine

Surprisingly, I’ve seen Chris Pine in more movies than I’ve wished over the years but…whatever. I thought it’d be fun to pick him for this week’s segment of this series. Enjoy!

I tried to watch this movie a few weeks ago but it was so boring I fell asleep. True story. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Chris Pine

‘Star Trek: Picard’

I’m not a huge Star Trek fan. Not in the slightest. But one Star Trek show I do occasionally love to watch is Star Trek: The Next Generation. Patrick Stewart’s Captain Picard is a leader I’d follow across the galaxy and with a lovable cast of characters the show manages to truly delight.

The trailer for the new Star Trek obsession coming to CBS All Access, Star Trek: Picard, came out today and I have to admit, I am fascinated. It looks really, really good. And Data’s back! Woo!
