Me: ParaNorman--a great stopmotion animation(not ACTUAL Claymation--as Claymation is a trademark of Will Vinton studios)
BUT ParaNorman was made at Laika Studios, which, like Will Vinton studios, IS located HERE in my beautiful city of Portland, OR
Went to the cinemas for the first time in ages and saw Star Trek Into Darkness.
I... think I liked it? It was basically Wrath of Kahn again with more death and explosions. It certainly wasn't what I was expecting, and was much more of an action movie than the other stuff I've seen from Star Trek, both from the original series and Next Generation.
It's kind of weird. I can't tell if it went too far with it's attempts to up the stakes significantly, or if it didn't go far enough what with sticking to a story that's already been done. Despite all that, holding it up on it's own merits, it was a very entertaining movie. It was just an odd combination of classic Star Trek and modern action movies that left me a little confused when watching it. I think I'd enjoy it much more a second time, if I was in the right mindset before watching it. So yeah, it was good. I enjoyed it. I think.
Saw Star Trek Into Darkness. As a long time fan of Star Trek, I could sit and nit pick and bemoan how my beloved world has been horribly mangled by the fiendish JJ Abrams, but instead I'll just say it was an entertaining action/sci-fi that pays homage to one of the greatest shows of all time (more of a Next Gen fan, personally, but the original was groundbreaking).
