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.

 

 

You have to see my big ole TV with the home theater surround sound. I get blasted pretty good. :lol:

 

I will probably change my mind when I live with the old people and can get "senior discounts"

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.

 

Well you may have just talked me into seeing the movie again. I was so excited about it and counting down the days until it came out, was ready to actually go to the theater (last movie I saw was Orphan when I was pregnant with my 3 1/2 year old), but then interviews with J.J. Abrams came out and I just couldn't justify spending the money to see something that the director most likely ruined, but I may have to give it a shot. No matter what I would have seen it eventually because I have seen everything Star Trek.

 

I actually think I may have converted my Star Wars is better, wouldn't even watch Star Trek hubby so us and my two girls all love it. TNG is a favorite for hubby, 6 year old and me whereas the youngest likes TOS best because she loves Spock and tribbles. Both girls asked me to use my ball shaped cake pan to make them a tribble cake for their birthdays this year and youngest takes her Star Trek book of opposites to bed with her every night.

I totally agree. This movie has made for theater action. The only reason we go to the movies pretty regularly is because of the $1 theater. It is very rare for us to make a "real" theater exception. The only other opening day movie we ever saw together was Alice. I also went opening day to Beauty and the Beast 3D and went to the sing-a-long when they had that a few years ago. My parents didn't take me when I was a kid and idc how many times it comes back to theaters, I'll see it again and again and again.....

 

There is nothing like an action movie in a theater though. I don't pass up the chance if I want to see it since we have a cheap theater here, I just have to wait longer.

IT WASN'T ME!!! But to be fair, if you didn't hear the rumors in the past months about who it would be you probably weren't watching any news at all about the movie.

Awesome.

Movie.

Theater.

PS....action movies require theater viewing....sure hope son keeps this job thru the summer if not longer...comfortable, clean chairs with three full feet of leg room over pristine floors...man I am going to get spoiled.

I remain a James Tiberius Kirk fan....although I love each character.

Fantastic birthday even with the intermitant tears as Shroomie and one of hubs childhood pack/friend of mine since HS both left us yesterday.

Go! You won't be sorry. I will definitely be going to see it in theaters again when it gets to the $1 theater. Maybe even more than once.

Discount Tuesday prices today at Cineplex.  :)  And we had a gift card.  ;)

 

Loved the movie. It builds on prior material in the franchise, so you may miss some references if you did not see the original series episode "Space Seed" or Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

 

Live long and prosper.

This is all common knowledge by now but something that everyone involved in the movie went to great lengths to keep under wraps until it was released. If you haven't see those though, while you may miss out on some trekkie jokes it won't take away from your enjoyment of the movie as long as you saw the last one.

Ugh. I still haven't seen this yet!! And I am a true Trekkie. I have been to Vulcan (Alberta  B) ) for the Star Trek festival  back in the early 90's... I even own pointy ears.  :D

Don't spoil it... tell me no more. I know my V-ger and Khan - I'm going this weekend!

I am soooo not a Star Trek fan as my least favourite genre is sci fi.  People and object thingers dressed up in tinfoil (what is that gold thing's name?) and getting beamed up somewhere??!!  I don't get it.  But honestly.  I am happy for those who do get enjoyment from it.  It makes me happy to see others happily anticipate something they love!  :D

 

Wait!  The one thing I do get is Darth Vader.  Why?  My husband must use a CPAP machine and when it is not snug over his nose he sounds disturbingly like Darth Vader.  So, I say, "Darth Vader, Dear" and he adjusts his mask.  :lol:

This makes sense to me....as there is no way a Replicator will ever match L2T's culinary skill ;)

 

Even if you are not a science fiction fan....young JT Kirk would make a fantastic addition to our staff!

You're too funny (and sweet at the same time!).  I'll have to google young JT Kirk.  If he is a good fit, he is in!  :P

    • My DH was diagnosed with celiac disease several months ago and I was just getting a handle on baking again, turning out gluten free quick breads, muffins, biscuits, breads and cakes like a champ when.....more allergies. Now we are gluten free, dairy free, egg free.....and rice free. Yikes. I've converted to almond and coconut milk, that was a breeze. Vegan egg substitute just made its way into the house for baking and I have high hopes, though I haven't used it yet.  I need a gluten free flour blend that doesn't contain rice flour. On hand I have oat, coconut, sorghum, fufu and amaranth flours, potato starch, corn starch, and xanthan gum. I need a mix that will use what I have on hand, and that will work for quick breads like banana and pumpkin bread.  Anyone have a recipe that has worked for them in the past?
    • Thankyou so much that's really helpful I did wonder about dairy as I seem to bloat a little after a coffee with milk
    • Love your attitude - it will really help you going forward (I was you three years ago...) Don't be surprised as time goes on if you have a lull in your fortitude.  Every once in a while I see (or smell!) a food I really miss, or have an accidental glutening that sets me back, or someone that doesn't understand my issues and thinks I'm a faddist.  I've learned to let myself have a sulk and a pity party and then move on.   Good luck!
    • Hi Natalie, That sounds like how it often goes after beginning the gluten-free diet.  We'd like to think that it would be steady progress in the up direction but it seems like our healing goes back and forth a little.  The immune system reaction takes a while to settle down, weeks to months.  So it is hard for the gut to heal while that reaction is going on. It's helpful to eat simple foods at first and avoid dairy.  Processed foods including baked goods are best left on the shelf.  Try to eat whole foods only including meats, vegetables and nuts.  Carbs and sugar are not helpful. Things should get better after a month or two if your diet is clean of gluten and diary.  Then you can try adding things back in slowly one item a week. Peppermint tea can help with bloating.  Probiotics may help too. Welcome to the forum!
    • like I said I am new and just learning ...   Is Mirlax gluten free
