Just got back from seeing Star Trek. It's been a long time since a movie had me leaving the theatre with a cheese-tastic grin on my face. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I did, however, spend a lot of the movie dealing with a fidgety six year old with a lot of questions. Loved the movie though. I was surprised and pleased by a lot of things in it.

Funny thing: I love Star Trek. Mostly TNG but there are bits of TOS that I love and DS9 is usually something I enjoy (Voyager I enjoyed for years before, well, it sucked too much for me to watch it and I never got into Enterprise). I read the books, saw the movies, read the comics (Marvel, DC and IDW). I'd been worried about going to see the new movie not because it's different (I love different interpretations) but I because I've been burned before (glares at JJ). But...I no longer care about that. I've seen too many people squee about it and it's completely infectious.

I've gotten some word about two possible jobs so that's good (one full-time one part and it's likely that I could do both at the same time so that's good).

I'm contemplating whether or not to go see Star Trek. Trailers make it look very shiny. I just don't know though. JJ has burned me before.

As a self-described geek there have been some things that I've always felt but never wanted to admit, should I loose some of my geek cred. But I thought, what the hell, why not come clean?

1. I have never enjoyed any of the Star Wars films. I want to. I really truly wish that I liked them because part of me thinks I should, but I just can never get into them.

2. Futurama is better than Simpsons. 'nuff said.

3. Despite being a girl and huge comic book fan, I hate Wonder Woman. Maybe hate is a strong term but I've never really liked her.

4. I enjoyed Superman Returns waaaaaay more than Batman Begins (corallary: I have no interest in ever seeing "The Dark Knight").

5. I've never been able to get into The Watchmen (and I'm someone who generally likes Alan Moore).

6. The Dark Knight Returns was boring and frankly off puting. I'm not a fan of Frank Miller at all.

I went to see GOF Sunday evening and I have to say I rather liked it (of course I still like POA, but that's only because I'm a bitch for a pretty movie; I'd probably be angry with it if I cared overly much about plot). My favorite thing about it; Ginny. Lots of Ginny. And the twins. For almost no reason. But they were all excellent. And the twins were quite yummy. I had my two year old nephew with me, and he spent most of the time running around the theatre, so I missed a bit of the movie, but I'm going to wait for the DVD, because I don't feel like paying $8.25 to see it again.

I loved the graveyard scene, Ralph rocked my socks off; he does good crazy. The only problem I had with Voldemort was the eyes, but *shrugs* otherwise quite good. There wasn't enough Miranda. She was really fabulous, I wished they'd followed through with the plot point. Oh, and despite the touchy-feely H&H, I don't really see how people can think this movie was H/H. I mean, the thing that sealed it for me was the scene on the bridge. They were talking about Viktor and she said something about him being physical and Harry just grins.

Oh, and I liked the Yule Ball and how uncomfortable they all were. I especially liked the "discussion" between Ron and Hermione, with Harry between them. That was awesome.

But the thing I absolutely loved was the bath scene. It was wonderful. Myrtle was hilarious and so was Harry when he kept trying to keep the bubbles in front of him so she wouldn't be able to see anything. All in all, I liked it, but I wished I'd been able to pay more attention to it.
