So, as you may have seen, one of my favorite internet friends, ION, and I went to go see Star Trek Into Darkness together tonight. It was fantastic.
ION and I were sitting in the front row (assigned seats, we bought them 2 days ago, it was what was left - but while the non-IMAX previews were hard to view, the IMAX previews [SUPERMAN] and the movie weren’t diminished by our proximity).
I will not comment on the plot of the movie (which has so many throwbacks to all of the series! Very good for the Star Trek Nerd - luckily I was sitting with one, who told me the refs when I missed them), but I will comment on the 3D. The first scene and the later battle scenes were AMAZING in 3D. BUT. Much of the plot of the movie is conveyed in long, involved, and incredibly interesting scenes that are just conversations and mostly consist of tight shots of the actors’ faces. And there’s only so long that I can gaze at the 6 hour scruff on Cris Pine and Zach Quinto.
Honestly, if I could watch certain scenes in 3D and switch back to regular for others I would do it. I felt the 3D made me find ZQ unattractive. Which heretofore I didn’t think possible. Kinda makes me sad.
This has been a movie review.

Now, you do you, Modern Hippie Lady, I have no judgement, whatever makes you happy - until you start telling me how to live my life. Then I will silently judge you. And post about it on the Internet.
