    Default Star Trek Into Darkness

    This movie was released today in my country and it sucked ass. Absolutely awful.

    Just kidding. I enjoyed it, much darker than the original but still an entertaining piece. The 3D experience was fun as well.

    I'm tempted to just paste every single plot spoiler into this post as I know that most of the world is yet to see it.

    I will beam you through the shields if you try that.

    This was amusing, though:

    Very well, I shall ruin the movie over at IMDb and perhaps leave a giant turd spoiler for the guys at work tomorrow instead. Thank you Jennifer for making me see the light, I don't want to die from explosive decompression just yet.

    I also chuckled at the video.

    I dislike car adverts, but that was indeed amusing. Although I was caught out by Leonard Nimoy when I first saw him, I thought he had melted, then I remembered he is 82. I'm never really sure what the 'standard appearance' is supposed to be for someone in their 80's, I suppose there are archetypes of course, but it is by nature a subjective judgement.

    Given that, he looked pretty good.

    Of course i'm joking, because standard appearance is a ridiculous idea.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    I think the standard image for an 80-something is: White hair, vacant expression, slow walk, face which resembles a testacle sack, piss stain on clothes etc.

    My nan has none of these save the white hair and the testacle-sack wrinkles. I'm starting to worry she's going to live forever.

    He's definitely looking a little different. The first show I saw him on was Star Trek, and then In Search Of, and I was kind of surprised to see him now... but I think it's awesome he's so actively involved in things instead of disappearing from public life. Same thing with George Takei, who is also extremely active not just on FB and in Trek stuff but also as a spokesperson for SSA.

    It's also cool that Quinto and Nimoy are good friends.

    They're snotty little SOBs over there, I think they deserve a good spoiler in the online forums!

    It's the nose. Nemoy's face actually doesn't look bad except for the nose. Noses get huge and droopy with age. It's distracting.
