Those lips. Those eyes. Those…pointy ears.
Something has clicked deep inside us, stirring emotions we didn’t know existed. Thanks to show-stopping performances and feats of nimble, athletic machismo by gay heartthrob Zachary Quinto (Spock) and straight-but-we-sure-wish-he-were-gay Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk), it’s time for us to come out of the closet.
We’re here. We’re queer. We’re Trekkies.
Wow. That’s a far more frightening confession than proclaiming our homosexuality, but it feels so right.
Yes, as the second installment of the revamped sci-fi franchise, Star Trek Into Darkness is a near-perfect action adventure spectacle made all the more spectacular in boundary-pushing 3D. After a string of poorly converted 3D movies, it seems that at least some in Hollywood are finally putting in the effort to make it a genuinely enjoyable, enhanced movie-watching experience.
From the eye-popping opening sequence to the die-hard fan-pleasing final scene, there’s plenty to love about this movie. Suspense. Danger. Sex. And Tribbles. It’s all there in larger-than-life cinematic glory.
Just waiting for each of you to boldly go. Perhaps twice. And at least once in IMAX.
