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

    • The year to recover?  It seems pretty standard around here despite some literature  stating it only takes months for villi to recover.  That may be true, but most celiacs have systemic issues.  Neurological issues are usually the last to resolve, if at all.   And let's not forget that the gluten-free diet has a steep learning curve that can delay healing.   I have read sites that promote a Whole Foods diet without gluten in an attempt to calm down inflammation or improve an autoimmune disorder.  It works for some but not all, but it is certainly worth considering.  For me, I was undiagnosed for years like so many celiacs.   I also have Hashi's which was diagnosed 20 years ago.  Since going gluten-free, after my celiac disease diagnosis, my thyroid has shrunk and my nodules are gone.  However, this past winter, I had a tooth infection, the flu, a cold and now my thyroid antibodies are high again.  I also developed autoimmune hives (like clockwork, they appear at 3:00 pm) as a result (I think).  My immune system is constantly running on high alert.  I have allergies to so many things.  But....what is a girl to do? Beside a cocktail of antihistamines, I  move forward.  I am "healthy".  I can still ride my bike, swim and run.  Maybe not as fast (who am I kidding...not fast at all) as when I was younger in my 30 and 40's.  I have Type 2 diabetes despite being thin.  Like celiac disease, diabetes is genetic.   Read the Newbie 101 under coping.  Make sure everything is gluten free.  you would be surprised at hidden sources or dealing with cross contamination.  I know your family has celiac disease, but unless you walk the walk daily, you do not get it.  But...maybe you do!  
    • Does he run a lot? On hard ground? My ferritin started at 74 and is now 20. My rbc count was normal but showed mild anemia after an 18 hour fast.   I initially also thought it might be due to malabsorption, and it may be, although my gut doesn't show a ton of damage. Coincidentally I started running around  all of this, with A 6 month break in between, and have also recently read that Runners Who log a lot of miles generally are pretty low on ferritin if they don't supplement.  I only do between 6-15 Miles per week.  I eAt a mixed green salad about 5 times a week, red meat a couple times a week, and then a lot of other high iron foods.  lamb stew is a tremendous source of iron, as well as mussels. I am a big fan of garden lights chocolate zucchini muffins as well each mini muffin contains 20% of the daily value.  I Like to eat Two for breakfast with my coffee.  if he stopped eating gluten about a month ago you might still be able to get the blood test done. I'm sure you have read by now that you need to be eating gluten to be tested.  antibody start falling Right away but for some people it takes a long time.   I'm not a doctor but I would think that if you have enough damage to mal absorb iron then it would take a lot longer than just 4 weeks for you to  fix that kind of damage And reabsorb it again.    did they order a total iron binding capacity?  and was the iron panel done while fasting? You don't really need to fast for a ferritin but serum Iron can easily be elevated With food.  Although symptoms vary depending on the individual I have read quite a bit online that When ferritin drops below 40 people can start getting symptomaTic.  so you are likely correct that his feeling better is related to his ferritin level increasing.  giving up gluten means giving up certain nutrients as well. So if he's already vegetarian he needs to really pay close attention to what nutrients he might be missing in his diet now if he's giving up whole grains.  
    • Thank you! I will look into it! 
    • You would honestly think that after you body goes nuts attacking your insides trying to kill the gluten after 2 days of food poisoning yourself with it the damn antibodies would show up in insane levels in your blood Life is not that easy though.
    • Some days I have 3 pieces of bread, other days I just can't handle more than 1.  I had to take a day of gluten rest after the first week.  I felt too aweful. Now I'm almost done with week 2 and I feel like I need another break.  Just so hard to do something to yourself that you know will hurt.  They just don't know how much and for how long.  There was a recent study that looked at gluten challenges in folks actually diagnosed with celiac and some took months to have elevated antibodies.   Just one day at a time.  I hope things go well for you.
