Review: Star Trek Into Darkness

STID1

After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

STID2

The first Star Trek movie from JJ Abrams was Epic, it just revitalized the whole franchise, and I was really looking forward to the release of this movie. I didn’t have a chance to see it right away but I heard a few mixed reviews that surprised me. After watching the movie I knew it was one hell of story, about Captain Kirk, about Spock and what they go through the Federation, something totally different. And Khan is the same Khan that was from the original movie, it was a well thought out storyline with some very crazy battle scenes. The story was well thought out and deep, and I like what they did with Khan and very well played. I don’t want to ruin the story but if you are a Trekkie or a fan of Scifi then you have to see this movie.

Star Trek – Into The Darkness – Trailer

J.J. Abrams’ first Star Trek movie destroyed Vulcan and wreaked havoc with the timeline — and judging from this first minute of footage from Star Trek Into Darkness, the destruction is only going to be more massive this time around. Check out the first “announcement trailer” for Star Trek II: The Wrath of… we still don’t know who. But he’s pretty fricken wrathful.

This movie is going to be Epic, it seems they are going to top the first one from 2009. I think I’m going to watch it again, it was just that good.

Star Trek Alternate Intro

This animation is an homage to one of the most groundbreaking sci-fi television shows ever to beam down to Earth. Our goal was to try and capture the essence of what we found most enjoyable from the series for building this faux opening to this classic show.

An animated reinterpretation of the orignal Star Trek intro, I just love hearing that intro and in style of animation is very cool and retro.

William Shatner – Get A Life

After seeking out his fellow Star Trek commanding officers in The Captains, William Shatner is back with another documentary, this time focused on the fans. From the trailer, William Shatner’s Get a Life! looks like an affectionate examination of Star Trek fandom and why the franchise has meant so much to so many.

For all the Star Trek Fans out there this is a must, I still have to watch Star Trek’s The Captains, just makes me feel good seeing Star Trek. Since Enterprise went offline it was the last Star Trek show since the movie from JJ Abrahsm in 2009, and there is just something that I love about Star Trek. William Shatner plans to explore it in this fun documentary, I love his sense of humor.

Sci-Fi Armory

SciFiArmory

In need of a pull rifle or a needle gun to blow a building apart, who wouldn’t want this arsenal for their armory. Creatively ThinkGeek have put together a few memorable weapons from key SciFi movies, I have managed to identify some of them without issue and some I don’t have a clue at all. Do you have an idea of the other weapon’s origins?

1977 – Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (Han Solo Gun)
1986 – Aliens (Sigourney Weaver)
1996 – Judge Dredd
1997 – Men In Black (Will Smith)
2009 – District 9

Star Trek: Tik Tok

I’m a fan of Star Trek, and I do like Ke$sha’s song Tik Tok and this mash up is pretty funny. Just listening to the words and some of the scenes are taking it literally. Star Trek never gets old!

Working on the Enterprise is pretty much a non-stop party as far as I’m concerned. (Probably because the only parts I pay attention to are the Kirk/Spock moments, Scotty when he’s drinking, Chekov when he’s macking on his girlfriend and doing no work, and Uhura singing and just HAVING A GOOF in general.) But really, this video was made for CLAIRE. I hope she finds it funny. You know, amusing.

Review: Star Trek

There is a lot that can be said about this movie, but I’m not going to spoil it for anyone, I only four words “Go SEE THE MOVIE”. J.J.Abrams has done an amazing job of making a Star Trek movie for the masses as well as keep all the little details of James T Kurk story, those who know the details will notice all the little things they placed in it. The action is fast paced and the story for being so rich doesn’t bore you at all, it keeps you interested at every point even though they had a lot of story to cover. The actors who were chosen for the roles were perfect in my opinion, or you could say their combination and flow was perfect and you could see it throughout the movie. I LOVED Simon Peg in the movie as Scotty, he fit it so perfectly its fantastic. Then there was the so many nostalgic moments from the music to some of the lines, it gets to you if you are Star Trek fan. Just an amazing movie, I can’t wait for the one after this one, I don’t know if J.J.Abrams is going to take the next one I hope he does.

Star Trek Movie in Kuwait

Let me just say this, usually I boycott the movie theaters in Kuwait because of the butchery a film goes through. This time I have gotten confirmation that very little from the Star Trek movie has been censored, about 3 scenes have been cut which isn’t bad for Kuwait’s standard of censorship. If you have been waiting to see this movie as I have then go see it now, you won’t regret it. Another odd thing we have in Kuwait is that people who think that the Spandex suits that these characters might wear is too revealing then they complain to the Ministry of Information and they take the movie back in for another round of chopping, so the earlier you see it the better chances you have of it being shown with the least amount of cuts, at this point its only 3 cuts so go watch it.
