Star Trek ( And Thanks God It's Finally Rained! )

Went to watch Star Trek this afternoon. With this LONG vacation I have, I'm pretty sure by the time new semester begins, I had already watch all the much-hyped-about popcorn movies.


Back to Star Trek. I'm not a Trekker/Trekkie/Star-Trekker or whatever those fans called themselves. And if you're like me who had no idea what the heck is Vulcan or Romulan or who the hell is Spock/Sylar or James T. Kirk, don't worry. The movie will explain it to you perfectly well as it's a prequel to all the Star Trek movies and TV series ever had.

The ship where it all begins...

The movie began excitedly with the birth of James Kirk in the middle of a space battle. That opening alone had all the actions and drama that set the tone of what you can expect from the movie. And boy, what a ride. Fast-paced, action-filled, with a bit of humors here and there, it's a perfect summer movie.

What propelled me to watch the movie was the fact that it was directed by J. J. Abrams, the creator of one of my favourite TV series, Alias, Lost, Felicity, and the latest, Fringe, and director of Mission Impossible 3. Having watched most of his show, I can noticed some of his trademark like long opening scenes. And most of the time, watching his shows will leave me out of breath.

One of my favourite
Another hit from Mr Abrams

As the movie is the prequel, it tells the story of how the friendship of Spock and James Kirk was formed. Therefore, no prior knowledge is required. This, I believe, will do the franchise good as it brings in new fans and audiences. And since the whole team of stars and production crews are booked for two more sequels, we audiences can expect more fun out of it. All I can say is *giving Vulcan salute*, live long and prosper.


And thanks God it had rained. It's been DAYS since I last remembered rain on Ipoh. Life was so unbearable what with the SCORCHING sun casting its POWERFULLY, BLOODY heat to the ground. And living in an un-air-condition-al room only infuriates me further. It feels like sauna in my own room!


Luckily, God had mercy on us humans. Seeing so many Malaysians sweating like there's no tomorrow, it shed tears on us. And it's not those drizzles but the rain cat and dog type. Finally, tonight can have a good night sleep...

p/s If you think my family is being environment-friendly, think again. The reason why there's no air-con in all the rooms except the master bedroom is because of the electricity bill.
