So I was talking with this guy about the new Star Trek movie and had to bring up the point that, while the acting and casting was great, the story was amateurish at best. In fact, there are any number of amateur fan scripts that I consider better. Time travel is the weakest plot device available to the movie industry (yes, I know Star Trek uses it all the time. They just aren’t so heavy handed with it) and the movie took a brutal approach to 40 years of recorded Star Trek history. Also, while Star Trek was never great about being scientifically accurate, the errors in this movie were embarrassing. It’s like Loki wrote the script (Loki image courtesy of the Loki t shirt genre page).
I don’t know. Maybe I should do some movie reviews and express my opinion more often. I just wish my beloved Star Trek could avoid the whole re-imagining phenomenon that seems to be sweeping Hollywood.
Anyway, I do like this Loki shirt. I was never sure about his horns but I guess they are kind of cool.
