Boldly Going Where No Star Trek Movie Has Gone Before….

With Friday here again, I decided to try something new with this blog.

Every Friday, I will take a detour from the traditional “Politics as Usual”, and will post basically whatever I want.  I call it “Wild Card Friday”.

This week, we are headed to the final frontier,  and we will talk about the Star Trek movie. So far, the movie’s doing stellar, with a worldwide gross of $141.7 million.  With it grossing over $100 million domestically, will it stay number 1?

If you know me, I’m not a big Star Trek fan.  It’s not that I don’t like the franchise.  It’s just that I never actually got into it when I was growing up.  But with Star Trek being this popular right now, I can’t help but talk about it, right?

I am, however, a fan of Star Wars.  Having seen the original movies as a kid and seeing the other 3 movies in the more recent years,  I am way more familiar with the franchise than I am with Star Trek.

Sure, I know a little bit about Captain Kirk,  Scotty, Spock, and Klingons, but that’s about it.

What are your thoughts on this movie?  Do you plan on seeing it, or if you saw it, how was it?  I don’t know if I plan on seeing it, but beam me up your thoughts and let me know.

Can Star Trek XI keep it up in the box office? Only time will tell…
