It’s Hump Day!
Wednesdays are strange. They’re in the middle of the week, thus the Hump Day appellation.
They’re not as horrible as Mondays but not as cool as Fridays. They’re like that moment of suspension at the top of a roller coaster, followed by that dizzying rush down to the weekend.
Above is the revamped Enterprise NCC-1701 for the new Star Trek movie opening next week. I will admit I was really skeptical about this new Trek having been a fan of the old Trek for many, many years.
But I’m willing to be open-minded and give it a chance. First, because I’m hungering for some good old-fashioned “buckle up” space opera. Second because as much as I love Star Trek: The Next Generation and its intrepid crew, the last Star Trek movie, Star Trek:Nemesis featured a decidedly aging cast who looked a bit, well, embarrassing, I have to say, trying to do an action movie.
Now we have some young bloods taking on the franchise and I have to say I’m looking forward to seeing what they can do.
Sure, Hollyweird appears to be doing nothing but retreading the same stories over and over. But that was how stories were told down through the centuries. Storytellers would hear a story from someone in another village (this was, of course, long before copyright) change it a bit, add some stuff, remove some stuff and voilà a revamp of the original.
So, yeah, I’m ready to boldly go where we’ve been before. At least ths time. 😉
