Star Trek

April 16, 2009

So I saw the new J.J. Abrams movie today…it was good but not as great as all the fan boys are making it out to be…it was solid..I’ll talk more about it once it goes on general release I don’t really want to spoil anything.

Fast & Furious

I’m not going to rave on how bad this movie is…because it wasn’t bad…it was not exactly a work of high art, but if you think that you are going to see something profound in a film staring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker ( Who’d win in a fight between Vin Diesel and Paul Walker…there’s only one way to find out…FIGHT!!!! As Harry Hill might say ….) , you need your head checked.

Anyway What I am going to talk about is the 12A rating that it got….I went to see this movie during the day and afterwards as I was waiting for my weak bladdered friend to return from relieving himself I was watching all the people coming out of the cinema and I was shocked by the number of young kids…I’m talking below 12. Why? Not because of the car chase or the almost cartoonish violence…but because of the number of ‘night club’ scenes involving scantily clad women and lots of exotic booze….not only that but there were 2, yes 2, independent scenes involving more then 2 women making out with one another…I left thinking to myself what kind of impression is this leaving on young boys minds?….Do they think that when they grow up and start going to ‘really cool’ night clubs/parties they are going to see hugh groups of super-model women just making out in front of everyone…because the reality is more likely to be a 2 litre bottle of White Lightening down the park … I don’t think I’ve ever seen that kind of behaviour at any of the parties that I’ve ever been to…if they do exist will someone please invite me to one?
