milleniumgypsy: (Marvel- Loki)
So I don't have a lot of time to post as I need to get to bed, but I wanted to make a quick little post. Just watched Star Trek: Into Darkness. I've been meaning to watch this movie for ages now, and tonight we finally grabbed it from RedBox. I really, really liked it! We'd gone to see the first one in the theater, but we didn't get to see this one there. Kinda wish that I had been able to!
As we were walking to the truck I was saying to Scottie that I was going to see an attractive british villian in a glass box, though not my favorite flavor of attractive british villian in a glass box. xD
Loki in glass box
That would be this bb right here, who isn't really a villian but I'm going to go with it for what I'm trying to say here.

What was I saying? Oh, here's the british villian on a glass box I'm talking about!
KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN OH wait we're not there yet. Hello Khan how are you?

Upcoming under the cut:
Hiddles spoilers
I was SO AMUSED by the paralells between Khan's capture and Loki's capture. I said to Scottie that Khan needed to give someone a knowing smile to someone as he was being marched in.
More generally, I thought that Benidict Cumberbatch did a really good job with the part. :3

I thought it was rather appropriate that in the parallel universe Spock was the one shouting KHAAAAAAAAN (I mean, that is so iconic). Also, the fact that Kirk sacrificing himself in the same way that Spock sacrificed himself in the past movies was a nice touch.

I had to fangirl squee at Original!Spock making an appearance to talk to New!Spock. Spock is one of my most favorite characters and has been since I was a kid so much love. <3 <3 <3

I want to talk more about it but I've already stayed up too late, and I'm planning on going in to work tomorrow. So later!

GAH! Don't even get me started on Khan! Damn movie made me fall in love with Benedict. DAMN YOU MOVIE.

I liked the whole Spock yelling Khan thing. A lot of people didn't but I don't get it. I really enjoyed the movie and would've without Benedict too I'm sure.

ehehehe, I can see how that could happen! Loki caused me to fall in love with Hiddles, so I totes feel you. xD (Though my reaction is YAY THANK YOU MOVIE lol)

I didn't actually read about fan reactions to the movies, I didn't know that people didn't like that. I suppose I can see that there are going to be fans that don't like change, but I think it's interesting to switch things up. :3
I would have still liked the movie without Benidict too, but I think he was a really good addition! And he's currently a Khansicle, so I'm sure this won't be the last we'll see of him.

btw, when I snagged the movie I was totes thinking of you! xD
