Awesome Series! I love all the eighties music they use in the show like for example this gem of a tune:.

I’m not too hot on the dubstep scene…I’m getting too old to follow what dem’ youth are listening to. Anyway I was intrigued by the collaboration between Four Tet and Burial. This is only out on 12″ vinyl in very limited quantities, its very trance-like but I like them both ( they are the ‘A’and ‘B’ side tracks) :

So here are my thoughts on the new Star Trek Movie. Generally it was good and I have to say I enjoyed it at the time of watching. Though after the movie was over I seemd to take it to pieces in my head to such a degree that I actually ended up thinking it wasn’t that great as I first thought. Here’s why:

  • The plot has more holes then swiss cheese..see next point
  • Stay away from time travel stories…they never work
  • How can a bunch of young people who have only just graduated from the academy be, by the end of the film, top officers on the FLAGSHIP of the federation…THE FLAGSHIP! Kirk goes from graduate to Captain in an astonishingly short time
  • Spock getting angry reminded me too much of Sylar…Seriously there is one point in the movie where he grabs Kirk by he neck and I swear he was going to do his “finger slice top of head to steal powers shtick”
  • Marooning Kirk on a frozen planet with hardly enough equipment to survive surely goes against all Geneva conventions concerning mutinous crew…well they are in space so maybe the federation dropped the Geneva convention..what was wrong with sending him to the brig like any sane captian would do?
  • Lucky though that considering the size of the planet he was able to land not too far from Old Spock
  • Little Monster being eaten by big monster…that scene annoyed me and I didn’t know quite why and then it hit me…they had the exact same sequence in The Phantom Menace!!!
  • Anyway as reboots so bad that it would get me angry and I did enjoy it far more then the travesty that was Wolverine….

    Holy mackrel Batman I think I’ve just seen the worse superhero movie ever …You haven’t Robin, Fox have still got a whole stack full of Marvel Superheros to bastardise…

    I should have known to stay away after all the same company that made this were responsible for Jumper, possibly the worst movie i’ve ever seen in the cinema

    Don’t really have much to say about this movie apart from its a good solid movie that made my laugh…and I actually think Paul Rudd is a very good comic actor. Why hasn’t he made more films with himself as the leading man? He glided into that role effortlessly.
