The Star Trek

Just got back from the midnight showing at the Rio - where the Burlesque Assholes took three intermissions, during which they seemed to be deliberately blowing smoke in our faces where we stood in line, ran half an hour long, and then stayed in the theatre afterwards to hog seats against those of us who'd been waiting in line for three and a half hours.

*deep breath*

Okay. That's out of my system. Now for happiness. Onward:

So I admit, I was highly sceptical of this film. Mainly in self-defence - if you don't expect anything you can't be disappointed - but any of you who were concerned about J.J. Abrams destroying canon are probably going to be... I was going to say relieved but the word is more like kind of amazed at what he did to work around that.

I will say no more.

And now I'm going to bed, because we had to walk back from Commercial and I'm exhausted. Tomorrow I have off, and I think we're going to see it again with calantha42 and mik100, who couldn't make it tonight. I, however, have no classes on Friday, which is glorious and I plan to celebrate by sleeping in rather extravagantly.
