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

    • Hi, you can try reporting your own post.  That should alert the site admin of your request.  I don't think they can delete your posts, but changing your user name may be possible.
    • Hi Pablito, Welcome to the forum! You are right, you should keep eating gluten  until the tests are all done.  The skin problems you describe ma be a condition only celiacs get.  The condition is called dermatitis herpetiformis (DH for short),  DH causes an itchy rash that is usually symetrical on the body.  You get the rash on both arms or legs etc.  It makes little blisters on the skin.  They are caused by IgA antibodies in the skin.  There i a test for DH where they take a small skin sample (biopsy) from the skin next to a blister and check it for IgA antibodies.   If they find DH, then you have celiac disease.  The 2 conditions are never separate.  there is a section of this forum dedicated to dermatitis herpetiformis with lots more information. The usual diagnostic process is to do a celiac antibodies blood test first, and then an endoscopy to test for damage to the gut lining.  But with DH, it is better to get the skin biopsy done instead of the endoscopy. Celiac disease is passed on in genes, so your children should be tested also if you are diagnosed.
    • Research Celiac Ataxia for potential diagnosis. Look at Milk and dairy for potential head and sinus related issues.  I stopped dairy and I can breathe now! Saturated fat may also be a problem, but it's mostly dairy!
    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • I'm 43 years old. I'm married and have two teen daughters. After all these years it was one of my daughters who tonight said to me: "you probably have Celiac disease" after hearing my wife and I talking about all the pimples I always get on my arms. I never heard of the disease but I have heard about a lot of people having gluten allergies and didn't know they were the same thing. So I started looking it up on the internet. Turns out I have had all the symptoms all my life and no one has ever said anything about it possibly being Celiac disease. When I was a kid my doctor gave me prescriptions to antibacterial soaps to use for the arm pimples. Hibitane I think was one of them. And I've always had swollen looking ankles as long as I can remember. All my life people have noticed it. As a kid and teen I played lot's of sports and have broken my ankles and sprained them so my mom and I brushed it off at that and so did my family doctor when I was young.  But I always thought it was weird that the swelling continued all these years.  I have had a bloated feeling stomach all my life too and chronic diarrhea. My stomach is always hard and swollen feeling. Not ever knowing what that stuff was related too so I have never mentioned the bloat or diarrhea to a doctor. Just kind of embarrassing I guess. As my wife and I were reading about Celiac Disease on the internet together tonight she pointed out to me that that's probably why these symptoms almost all went away when I did a very low carb diet for about a year straight to lose weight a couple years ago. I had solid bowel movements, no bloat, ankle swelling went down but I thought the improvements were from weight loss and just eating healthier . But perhaps in reality it probably had a lot more to do with not eating all the wheat products/gluten products. So tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor to talk to him about it and to ask for the blood tests. I have read that I should continue eating gluten though until my testing is done. So that is crappy but I guess it's better to know for sure. Something else I think I should point out too is that I get headaches quite a bit after having big meals. Now I am thinking that may have something to do with the gluten too. I have read that some people with Celiac also get headaches with the other symptoms. It's great to see there is a forum like this to help people out with these issues. If I test positive for Celiac I will for sure be following this forum closely for advice and diet/nutrition help.
