Subject:Star Trek: the Wremix of Khan
Time:10:15 am
I dragged my dad over to The Franklin Institute to see the new Star Trek movie in IMAX. (well, I should say "on IMAX"; it looks like they projected the theatrical print of the movie onto the domed screen, it was stretchy and hard to focus on details around the sides. Maybe I just sat in the wrong spot).

Dad's been out of work for a few months now, and I've been meaning to see more movies during the day, so it was Family Day. I'm not keen on seeing movies with a huge crowd, and a room full of fanatics, moreso. (it's different when you're watching something you've seen before, the crowd participation adds to the experience. They're annoying when you're trying to pay attention to something new). Besides, the Franklin caters to a more refined, clueful audience :)

Some of the earliest memories I have are of the original TV show. My folks watched it while I was a baby, and I saw it five times a week, year after year on UHF (and later, cable). We had a black&white TV, and the first time I realized Kirk, Spock, and Scotty wore different colored shirts was a revelation.

This is very faithful to the first handful of films based on the old show, and notsomuch the later ones pumped out by Paramount. (I'm trying not to say R--- B-----'s name here.) It snubs a lot of what made the original show entertaining. So. Meet the new Trek; same as the old Trek, at least the parts that amuse J.J. Abrams. The casting was A+, but the art direction could have been more retro. Also, needed moar Shakespearean DRAMA~! It was hokey, good fun, just like all Star Trek. I couldn't help but think someone said "Give us another Wrath of Khan". The CGI was done by ILM and the spaceflight/combat sequences are outstanding. The crux of this story hinges on time travel, which is a well-worn Sci-Fi trope. Abrams has a woody for Mr. Spock; who not only saves the day, but gets the girl. (Oh, Spoilers. btw, it's not this girl). Kirk gets his ass beat, a lot. One thing was missing, they totally need to film a vignette with Chris Pine and William Shatner for the DVD release. (Commissioner of Police T.J. Kirk shares a Saurian Brandy with grandson James after a long day at Starfleet Legal). c'mon, this stuff practically writes itself).

I've never seen 'Lost', so everything I know about J.J. Abrams I read on the internet (and the Jimmy Fallon show. really). The impression I get is that they make up the show as they go along (much like the X-Files), and bitches whine when they use "Deus ex Machina" (ie. magic) to get themselves out of a creative corner they may have painted themselves into. Some of the earliest memories I have of the internets are folks arguing over minutiae and inconsistencies in the fiction, and it pleases me to no end to see this tradition carried on with Star Wars, BSG, Buffy, Firefly, and Dollhouse.

The closest thing I have to a point is this: As entertaining as the movie was, I think I enjoy the bitching more.

I was noodling around with my camera when I heard the stadium crowd get hot, Ryan Howard hit a 3-run homerun and I *just* missed a shot of the fireworks.

edit: Phillies pitcher Joe Blanton just hit another homerun, the third hit of his career.
