Oh. My. God.
I am such a Trekkie.
Needless to say, I saw Star Trek last weekend. I loved it. LOVED IT! I really didn't expect to like it so much. I mean, let's just say science fiction and blowing things up and battle scenes and aliens aren't generally on my list.
However, Star Trek met my needs in a way I never expected. Hence, my REASONS TO LOVE STAR TREK list.
1. Catch Phrases - Now, I know ST has been around for some time, but this movie introduced to so many new awesome phrases to work into my daily jargon. For example, from now I no longer have to resort to lame-o messages in student yearbooks. I will simply write, "Live Long and Prosper" instead.
2. Scorching Hot Dudes - To start, there is the dreamy Captain Kirk. Oh, hello Blue Eyes. (Apparently this dream boat is on Lost, but that's not trashy reality tv, so I was clueless to his beautious existence prior to this film.) Next, we've handsome devil in Dr. Spock. So, he's got a twist on the bowl cut and a set of pointy ears, but his tortured soul and sultry eyes were enough to make me swoon.
3. Confusing Plot Lines - It's like the part in Harry Potter when Hermoine had to use her necklace (aka the time turner) to go back in time to save Harry and Buckbeak; also, she had to prove that it wasn't Harry's dad back from the dead, but rather a vision of himself casting his patronus that takes the shape of a stag. You'd really have to be a fan to understand.
4. Freaks - It totally makes you feel better about loving something if you can bond with others. I might be a little late to join the Trekki movement, but something tells me the will welcome me with open arms (unless they are Klingons).
I'd like to add more to this list, but damnit man, I'm only human.
Can't wait to see it again!
