I went to this film with no expectations. I am a bit of a trekkie but would never have surgery to do my ears the Vulcan way. (Yes some people have done that!). This film didn’t seem like a Star trek film. Infact it felt current and up to date…yup..Star Trek has had a makeover…and boy it looks great! Zachary Quinto is outstanding and Simon Pegg did justice to Scotty. I was so pleased (as will be most Trekkies) to see Spock played by Spock aka Leonard Nimoy. The story is fast paced and exciting…and you do grow to like Chris Pine as Kirk…even though it takes a while. Verdict…This will be the start of many new look Star Trek films. Watch this space! Verdict: this will have wide appeal to the purists and to the next generations of trekkies. (Did ya see what I did there? Eh?)
Ghosts of girlfriends past
A terrible title of this romantic comedy with just a hint of a Christmas carol. This film is actually quite funny in places and Michael Douglas was great in his role of Uncle Wayne. There are some great chat up lines of how to be a player. I have known (and dated) men like this! I enjoyed the cake scene and wish there had been more funny moments rather than the more mundane which most of this film have. It is worth a watch…and yes you can drag the bf to this one! (It might be under protest though).
