I may be slightly delirious after just three hours of broken sleep and hysterical from having made an apparently unending list of new things work need me to do. Either in spite of or because of these things, my flail knows no bounds.

After what seems like an eternity of waiting...


As my icon says, my fangirly joy at this cannot be adequately conveyed with capslock alone, so I've gone for big flashing capslock to come closer to the emotions elicited by having the Reboot crew secured in my sweaty mitt.

I fully intend to get it on BluRay when we have a player [which will be after Christmas], but Mr G has been appraised of the fact that I cannot wait that long so DVD and BluRay will be happening in this house whether he likes it or not.

I have an enormously terrifying day at work today. Presentation to give to the Executive Directors on my areas of work where I get to talk for 30 minutes then get grilled for an hour. I'm crapping my pants.

However, things are made a little better by the fact that I have hidden command power lurking beneath my black boots.

Mr G bought them for me yesterday and today I am wearing the command gold ones to give me Kirk strength. I love that he saw them and thought of me, and I love that I'm such a nerd that even in a high-flying meeting I can take strength from knowing I have the essence of Kirk wrapped around my ankles.

I am trying really hard not to watch all the leaked DVD featurettes of the Star Trek movie before the DVD comes out in two weeks time. Really, I am. But I'm failing so badly. So far I've watched the gagreel, all the out-takes, and now this:

Chris Pine Casting Featurette

My favourite part? John Cho: Chris Pine isn't good at acting. He's good at push-ups...

I am going to go see the movie again tomorrow with Rich. I've been craving it since I got back, so I was delighted when he asked me if I wanted to go with him.

[ profile] alba17 pointed me to this critical review of the movie and asked my opinion. I will probably have a second wave of thoughts following a rewatch but there are a few things, having read the review, that I totally disagree with.

Having been getting myself properly excited about the Star Trek movie since about January when trailers and stills started trickling out, I was fully expecting to be at least a little bit disappointed when I got to see it. It's very hard for something to live up to the degree of hype that I've built up for that movie. But nope. Not a bit of it. It was every bit as awesome as I hoped it would be. And then some. It's been 48 hours now since I left the cinema after seeing it, and I'm still bubbling with excitement. I'm kinda glad it was just Mr G sat next to me and an empty seat on the other side, because I kept fidgeting and flailing and squeaking with excitement throughout the film. And that was with me trying to restrain myself. I would have gladly turned around and gone right back in to watch it a second time, but now two days have passed I'm gagging to see it again. It's almost like a physical craving.

Cut for mild spoilers; spoilerific discussion is welcomed in the comments too if you feel the need. Reader beware :) )

The story was pacey, the performances were excellent, and I came out of the cinema feeling better than I had done in weeks and weeks. That's what good movies are supposed to be about. I can't recommend it highly enough. Nor can I wait to see it again.

I've been desperately excited about Star Trek for some weeks now, but mostly keeping it to a dull roar. Not just because one of my heroes is in it; or because of the immense slashy potential that's clear from the trailers between Chris Pine's Kirk and Zachary Quinto's Spock; or even because I'm finally coming to terms with and embracing my inner geek. As much as anything, it's because it promises to be a rollicking good action adventure. In SPACE!

Then, just to ramp up my anticipation, Simon Pegg recently offered a guest slot on his blog to an old friend, and I just read it and laughed and cried a little all at the same time:

"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!"

Tim Bisley (North London Science Fiction Review)

I can just hear it. It makes my heart glad in ways I can't adequately explain that Tim is still out there somewhere, that he loves the Trek movie, and that whenever something good happens Mike is the first to know *glee*

Roll on Sunday afternoon...
