So apparently on my summer list of things I’m doing I should include “see ALL the summer must-see action movies!”
Yup you guessed it, today I got to see Star Trek: Into Darkness. It was completely last minute, but it was good. I was wholly satisfied with the amount of explosions, dialogue, philosophy, complexities, and costume accuracy. I’m not really a trekkie as I have only seen a few original episodes, but I still enjoy a good sci-fi (I’m more of a Star Wars/LOTR fan myself). The only thing I would have rather liked to see was Uhura participate in more action. I just feel like she could be a really good fighter, given the chance. I’m also trying super hard not to give away any spoilers, so I’ll keep my other comments to myself.
Before the movie I also got to go to my old high school and see most of the groups perform. As I said with the last concert, I love hearing old songs reprised with new people, and seeing old friends (and in this case teachers). It is always a joyful experience to go back, and I fully expect to continue to do so for at least two more years, if not more. I’m hoping more.
