A brief duo of movie reviews

Don't worry - I bring no spoilers here. Read on without fear, just like Daredevil. Well, if Daredevil could read things online. Which he can't. I mean, there's text-to-voice but- I'm sorry, that was insensitive of me. Just- just read my movie reviews however you like. Sorry.*

First off - Star Trek!

This hard-hitting news report is dead-on. How dare a Star Trek film be a non-stop action packed thrill ride with humor and excitement?

Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As 'Fun, Watchable'

Go see it - you know, just so you can be as outraged as I am that it's totally freakin' awesome.

Oh, and incidentally, I also saw X-Men: Origins: Wolverine: Bub: Snikt: Bub. I didn't watch the leaked version online because that is wrong and seriously, who watches movies on their computer screen? Sheesh. I would have preferred the following ending but the first 2/3rds of the film were pretty enjoyable.

So, hey, let's just not talk about the last third of the film, okay? I like to focus on the positive.

Hey, did I mention how great Star Trek was? It was totally great. Flawless, even. Respectful of the pre-existing continuity while still managing to create an action-packed film that kept the core of every character intact. Nothing felt gratuitous, illogical or tossed-in for no reason at all. Yep. Boy, that was one good film.

Excuse me, I have to go now because my eye is twitching for some funny reason.

*Poor Daredevil will never be able to use Twitter.
"'I'm totally not Matt Murdock. Srsly. That's crazy. He's BLIND and I'm on Twitter, for Pete's sake.'
7 months ago"
"'Girlfriend crazy instead of dead this time. God, I hate life.'
5 months ago."
"'Kingpin in town again - WTF?!? Gotta go figure this out, BRB'
2 weeks ago"

. . . which is probably for the best.

Coincidentally, I am going to go and see the Star Trek movie in about half and hour. My son is taking me for Mother's Day.

He knows what I like.

Normally I'm pretty good with the detecting internet sarcasm. But I'm just kind of lost here :(
