I saw the Star Trek movie and what do you know I loved it. I should have known I was going to be a total geek about this! Now I constantly catch myself throwing up the Volcan sign and I am renting all of the old Star Trek movies and next I will be renting the tv series. This is a big undertaking, but what the heck. So far I've only seen Star Trek The Motion Picture from 1979. It was a little slow at times, but overall enjoyable to me.
I also saw Angels & Demons. I went into that movie with too high of expectations. Much like Da Vinci Code, it was too simplified and didn't go into the information enough. Why would I even expect the movies to do that, though? There is no way they could ever put all of that into a 2 hr movie. Ah well. Maybe people who haven't read the books will be inspired to after seeing the film? Who am I kidding! Everyone has read those books.
This weekend I am flying to Seattle for a vacation! I am so excited to drink Starbucks and play tourist everyday. Not to mention...no work for five days! I am hoping for little to no stress during this time!
That's all folks. Just wanted to update with my recent movie viewings.
(P.S. Rickie weeks is out for the year and that makes me sad)

I decided that I need to write a little blurb everytime I see a movie. Ha.
We saw Wolverine last Friday night. 10pm showing-much past my bedtime. ;) This movie was okay. I think my rating (out of 10-1 being worst; 10 being best), I would give it a 4. I really don't think it was very well-made and I don't think the effects were up to par, but it was kind of enjoyable. More-so than I thought it would be going into it. There were several moments of giggling for me. Also left the theater and claimed that I was Sabertooth for the rest of the night.
I watched Casino earlier this week. First of all, the lead actress was the WORST. Not only did the character annoy me (what a train wreck!), her acting ability (or lack there-of) annoyed me. That being said, I did enjoy the movie. It kept my interest and I do love me some amazing De Niro acting and gruesome Pesci violence! (Head in vice...classic).
Might go see Star Trek soon. I've never watched Star Trek before but am thinking I might have to. We shall see!
