Star Trek

42 posts in this topic

I'm super excited. When I went to get copies of my MRI and CT from last summer they apparently were having issues with something and while my disc should have been ready when I got there it took nearly an hour for it to be ready. In exchange for my wait I got 2 movie tickets. Now, we have a $1 theater in town for second run movies (on Tuesdays anyway, the rest of the week it is $1.50) and it isn't like the movie is different if you wait 6 or 8 weeks to see it. But... Tomorrow night is Star Trek!!!

 

We don't have money to spend on things like movies, but this time it is free. I'm practically on pins and needles excited! Plus, I talked to the general manager of the Cinemark today and he said that it is fine for me to bring a small bag of my own popcorn with me. I know, sitting for 2-3 hours without food won't kill me but I hate being in a crowded theater smelling theater popcorn and I don't have any! I just want to feel normal.

 

So. Tomorrow night. Midnight. Bouncy bouncy bouncy...... omg I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve! BTW, no I am not dressing up. Mostly because I'm too poor. :lol:

Reminds me of years (and years!) ago when I went on opening night to see a Star Trek movie. We got out of the car and there was a guy with a megaphone standing out front saying, "Star Trek Three is all sold out!" My buddy Glenn and I both said, in unison, "Doo-dah, Doo-dah".

 

I guess you would have had to be there, but the way the guy said it, it really did sound like he was almost singing "Camptown Races".

 

OK, it was only funny to me. I'll crawl back into my hole now... :blink:  :lol:

I giggled...no crawling back in a hole :)

 

just checked the showings at the fancy theater -- they aren't showing it on friday...but there is a sneak showing tomorrow night for the bargain price of $18.75 -- NOT!!!

 

Guess it'll be the regular theater without the working son --- boy do I love the sound of that "working son" :P

I heard it the way you wrote it, Barty! and I sang it and giggled  too!! :D

 

While I am not as excited as you guys are as I am not a huge Trekkie (I know, I know, what can I say? I have diverse tastes and that one took

a back seat, sorry?)  I can BE excited FOR you and say "ENJOY!!!"

 

(maybe someday when I can sit and relax, I will watch a few)

Start with the Original TV Series on Net Flix...I still love those the bestest.  You are actually in the majority...I'm a proud nerd -- was a closet nerd in HS...then i had a little boy that is born to tell stories and took him to his first comic con 12 years ago...seems that it is now "in" to be a nerd.

OMG you guys are crack me up!

 

Two summers ago my husband and I started watching with Next Gen, we made it through every series except the original because that one is just not our cup of tea. Besides, we've probably both seen every episode like 5 times in our lives anyway. We even watched Enterprise. (shudder)

 

I still get flak from friends when I tell them that Star Wars just isn't half as cool as Star Trek. My kids even give me crap over that, which I give right back. :lol:

My ex dragged me to the theater to see the first three movies when they were re-released. (First three being the first three made, Episodes 4-6.) I fell asleep halfway through the first one, and the second one. He didn't drag me along to the third one. :lol: People still think I'm crazy because my favorite character is Max Rebo. (The blue elephant thing.)

 

I'm a Trekkie. Can't help myself. If I had the money to dress up tonight I would totally go as a tribble!

I cant handle movie theatres (too many people in a cramped place) so I've never seen a premiere.  I usually catch the new releases when they become the movie of the week.

 

 

I have to STRENUOUSLY say,  STAR TREK RULES.

I won't spoil the movie for anyone, although I can not tell you how difficult it is not to do so. It is almost physically painful not to say..... stuff. It was so awesome that I would go see it again. Even at nearly $20 for two tickets.

 

Just, if you are a Star Trek fan at all and care not to have the movie spoiled you should go immediately to see it. I am guessing that in the next 24-48 hours the plot will be all sorts of all over the internet and you'll end up having it ruined unless you swear off technology.

My daughter works at a theater in AR and takes her dad, step-mom, bf, friends.... and even sometimes her sister to the movies usually 2-3 times a week. After working there I'm not sure she'll ever be able to give up working for a theater the way she talks about it. She may end up keeping a theater job at least part time a day a week for many years to come just for the perk.

I hate crowds and noisy film watchers too.

Because I taught a course called "Themes in American Film" for a few years, i liked to  go watch all different film  genres and I used to go to this funky little theater called the Spectrum n Albany and at 3:30 PM, they had a matinee  and I could sit and watch movies ALL BY MYSELF!! No one was there. Got my absurdly overly- buttered popcorn and a giant root beer and for $5.00 I saw everything new. (yes, it was the stone age and the film made a noise as it ran)  ah, the good old days! . It was this movie lover's heaven.

it's $14. per person around here, so we usually wait until it is on redbox for a buck because it won't take long.

OMG , I just recalled one of my Lucy Ricardo student teaching moments when I showed a film called Walkabout

and never noticed in the darkness of the auditorium that the entire 2 hours of film had spooled off right onto the floor. Those wonderful

boys helped me rewind that thing before the head honcho came back LOL I was 21, curvy and cute, so it probably helped.

Can't wait...felt a bit -- hell I felt like shit the past two days -- woke up feeling great, so off to pedal by several of the bike to work aid stations for National Bike to Work Day (ie Trick or Treating for adults on bikes) and then take care of daily stuff....then at 5:30pm son is treating us to free tickets....Hubs has a bit of work to do as son has been asked his opinion of the glutenous food in the fancy "cantina" of the new theater -- lol -- he is training himself to not have a nasty look on his face when he answers -- so hubs is going to eat all three gluten options for research purposes ;)

 

Off to pedal -- if you can consider riding a bike for an errand or to/from work if you live within a reasonable distance of your place of work.

Some movies must be seen on a large screen with the sound blasting all around you.  We rarely eat out anymore, so we can spend the bucks on movies.
