Maggie: Dad, be careful with the globe. Mom will get mad if you drop it.

Me: That’s no globe, it’s a space station.

Who ate the Wallaroo?

tcr! · May 24, 2013 at 10:56 pm

hhhh

No word yet on missing wallaroo

KINGSTON – As of Friday afternoon, Willow, the missing wallaroo, had not been found.

Willow is a 14-month-old baby wallaroo – essentially a miniature kangaroo – who disappeared from her home in rural Kingston about 8 p.m. Tuesday. The 2-foot-tall gray marsupial weighs between 15 and 20 pounds and is the pet of the Cleveland family.

She apparently does paperwork, too.

Pre-show Thoughts on Star Trek and Into Darkness

tcr! · May 18, 2013 at 10:35 am

7 Reasons Why 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Is A Beginner's Guide To Star Trek [Spoiler Alert]

7 Reasons Why ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Is A Beginner’s Guide To Star Trek [Spoiler Alert]

Everyday science, familiar plotlines, and an absence of jargon make this the most accessible Star Trek yet.

Star Trek is hardly beginner-friendly. Five television series, 12 movies, and a nerd following that defines nerd followings present a serious obstacle to the casual moviegoer. J.J. Abram’s 2009 reboot of the series was an attempt to make Star Trek more accessible, but it’s the second movie of the reboot, Into Darkness, where he succeeded.

I didn’t get a chance to see it just yet but it’s still high on my list. You wouldn’t notice by my online activities but I’ve always been a huge Star Trek fan as well, seen all the movies watched all the TV shows (except the Deep Space 9 yawn). It just wasn’t the “event” that Star Wars was when a new movie came out.

Watching Shatner and Nimoy on reruns as a kid, I’d think this is just like cowboys and indians in space. It’s the Lone Ranger and Tonto but on starships instead of horses. And The Next Generation was space junk with a moral dilemma and a moral compass.

Anyways, JJ Abraham’s 2009 re-imaging was quite good. I’ve only seen it once, a rare happening with sci-fi I bond to, but I was fairly impressed. I figured it would be a shitty-writing’ visually-CGI’ed master piece.

My excited-odometer is at about 90 for Into Darkness. I only skimmed the above POPSCI article so as not to taint my experience but I’m suspicious of this line…

Set in 2259, Into Darkness revolves around a terror attack and the subsequent manhunt.

The Star Trek: Enterprise series with Scott Bakula seemed to take too many plots straight from current affairs and I’d hate to find that the current movie is a Zero Dark Thirty … in space.

I’ll leave you with another review…

Star Trek Into Darkness: Impressive but imperfect

No one is in danger of winning any Oscars, but it’s a serviceable plot that gives the characters a good backdrop for plenty of great action and character moments. When the film veers into familiar Star Trek territory, however, things start to feel a little forced and gratuitous.

i hate/have to admit that i only skimmed the article. i'm just not that interested in their opinion. these next 2 or 3 sentences need to be taken with a proper amount of salt (ton) but i'm finally coming into my own as a film advocate. i hate critics. they're so critical. i love the movies and i take the bitter with the better and this movie is definitely the better.

the 2009 offering was an instant classic. waaay too cool. it left big shoes to live up to, to mix my metaphors. that being said, it does a lot of what the article i skorned said it did. lots of insider material or jokes if you will. it lets us know that the movie is for us, as well as the rest of them.

i'd go, and in fact, i am going, in a few minutes.

i saw it in 3D this time. this is only the 2nd movie i've seen that 3D was worth it. i saw it in 2D the first time because e. doesn't like 3D, and i have to admit that i am not too taken with the technology, but this was worth it. the other one i saw in 3D was the other space movie, James Cameron's movie. i can't think of the name of it now to save my life, but it was also very cool.

besides the 3D fx the movie itself grows on me with the second showing. it has moved up half a star in my rating.

mostly what i like about it is it's homage to the original stuff. the roles of Kirk, Spock, O'hoorah, Chekov, Bones, Sulu, Scottie are all A+ performances. the role of O'hoorah has been expanded and changed significantly, but it only adds to the show. the role of the villian Khan is another A+ performance. probably A+ scripting, but the actors knew their stuff.

I was not a fan of the original Star Trek show—too wooden. The message was good—equality for all. Starting with the movies, I liked the original cast—at least #2, #4, #6. The fourth (Voyage Home) brought more humor, which fit well with the plot. These two 'prequels' are far superior in writing. Cast is excellent, and their timing is great (which likely means some good direction). I would recommend both of the prequels.
