I finally got around to watching it and while it was ok, I also thought it was pretty muddled. I think my problem might be I kept thinking back and comparing it to the comics, Frank Miller's series especially, so I kept trying to wrap my head around what was on screen and what I thought it should be from the comic universe I am familiar with.
Welp, so much for that sub 3/gal. Just jumped 20 cents overnight for no apparent reason.
Actually down to 2.95 here, so that's 3.25 for premium.
Gas actually dropped under 3 bucks here in Texas.
No one told me Batroc the Leaper was in this movie!! Please let him have the cheezy french accent.....
I finally got around to watching it. I got pulled in and liked the movie alot. Although I have a hard time dealing with the fact that apparently Kahn (and I assume the rest of his crew) apparently have magic blood that can cure almost anything. While I assume the world of Trek is supposed to be more advanced than ours, I have a hard time thinking that they'd just freeze em rather than use them as a source of magic elixir to heal all of mankinds illnesses.
Come to think of it, that would make an interesting movie. Kahn is somehow awakened and realizes his people have basically been milked for healing abilities and this sends him into a rage, vowing to get revenge on the Federation and humanity in particular. Maybe include a twist that somehow the "harvesting" of them caused most if not all of them to die out.
Additionally, I wonder if they're implying the incredible reproducing of Tribbles from the original series might somehow be linked to this universe's use on McCoy's tribble in sickbay?
Nevertheless, I think it's another pretty good Star Trek movie and makes me wonder what JJ will do with the Star Wars franchise (which I am much more invested in than the Star Trek universe).

With the whole moving house / ex-Mrs Dalty break up thingy going on then my mother - God bless her - has been on the phone EVERY night checking I am OK.Shouldn't complain too much though. It'll suck royally when they are gone.

My parents live in Ohio, so they snowbird at my place. Show up around Thanksgiving and leave around spring. If I had a life, their visit would really cramp my style. Since I don't it means I get a live-in chef/dog walker/handyman/maid, which is sweet.
speaking of the weather, just dug myself out of the ice storm that hit North Texas. 4 days straight in my house. To make matters worse, my parent are in town for the holidays. By Tuesday, I was actually looking forward to going back to work.
Filled up today at 3.33, which is 3.03 for 89 octane.
I always liked Brooks' Magic Kingdom for Sale book although I never read any other books in the series.
