I went to see the new Star Trek film today. I’ve been waiting four years for this film and it was worth the wait. I’m usually hesitant to compare a film to others after just seeing it but this time I know it was that good. It’s the best of the Star Trek films. There wasn’t one bad thing about it. I loved the twists and surprises. The plot was complicated enough and had quite a few rewarding nods to the original series and films. I don’t know if people who don’t like Star Trek will like this film as much as me but I loved it. I really hope that Abrams commitment to Star Wars doesn’t stop him from making the 13th one.
While I’m writing about J.J. Abrams, it was announced last week that 2 of his new shows have been picked up for full seasons. The one I’m interested in is Almost Human, which is about humans and robots on a police force. At first I laughed at the idea because it sounds exactly like Mac and Cheese, which Joey stared in at some point in Friends, but after seeing the trailer I think it looks interesting. I’m looking forward to it. Also Community got renewed for a 5th season which is brilliant news. 1 more to go!
I finished reading The Postman Always Rings Twice a couple of days ago. (It was also the inspiration for a new story, Jimmy, part 3 of which is available HERE) I enjoyed the book and would probably read more by the author. The next book I’m going to read is Darren Shan’s new book, Hagurosan, which is really just a short story. I’m sure it’ll be worth reading though.
Tomorrow I’ve got some work to do with the cover of my book and after that it’s back to editing.
Thanks for reading,
