    I also remember Ebert complaining about the reference to a "positronic signal" as being insider, technobabble Trek jargon, which irritated me since it's obviously not Trek-speak, it's Issac Asimov!

    Well, this afternoon I went to our local theater and I did see lots of Star Trek XI signs there, so that's good. The ticket vendor said the movie would be there this May 8th. As for reserving tickets, if we can it would be this coming Monday and only in person, so it looks like I'll be making a trip back up there this Monday. I am guaranteeing that I will have two tickets for opening night or so help me God I will knock nuns, little old ladies and girl scouts out of my way to reach the ticket counter before they sell out!

    Thank you!
    I was going to do it in color, but when I got it done everything looked too "busy", so I thought black and white would be just right. :D

    Have we gotten any reaction from other members of the Trek family regarding what they thought about the movie yet? Takei? Frakes?

    I would love to hear their opinions on the movie, particularly Jonathan Frakes, since he has directed several movies.

    One of the newest reviews:

    "This film is fucking brilliant!!! Sorry it took me a while to post this but I wet myself and was sick down my t-shirt because I was so excited and in love with this fucking movie which is brilliant. Did I say it was brilliant? I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and my faith in Science Fiction cinema has been restored. In your face Jar Jar you idiotic nonsense fucksmack. Live long and prosper all the fucking way I say!!! Oh god I can't stop crying! I have to call Mike!"

    I can't tell whether he liked it or not. Can someone dumb it down please? Or repeat it? Loudly? And in glaring letters?

    J, I'm assuming you might not know who Tim Bisley is.

    He's a long time fan who was very disappointed with ST:TPM, so much so he cremated all his SW merchandise in his backyard, and couldn't speak of it for years. So his positive review is... heartening

    Do a search on "North London Science Fiction Review", you should find his website. :D
