Crushing on Vulcans...

Crush, part 1

I always had a crush on Spock as a kid, and my favorite Star Trek films were the ones that revolved around him - The Wrath of Khan and The Search For Spock. It pains me to report that my crush on Spock has gotten even worse:


Crush, part 2

There's simply no hope for me now. I rarely get blown away by films but this one completely silenced my (loud) inner critic and just knocked my socks off. I wouldn't say I'm an ultra-nerdy Trekkie but I love good sci-fi and obsessively watched the old and new series (and almost all the movies). To me, this movie celebrates everything that was good and funny and exciting about Star Trek, and (is it possible?) made it even better.


I have a feeling I'm going to watch this movie at least 5 more times this year. And, isn't the internet a wonderful thing? It's how I know I'm not alone in crushing on Spock.

I think I made my husband a little uncomfortable with my Zachary Quinto talk after that movie, which was spectacular in all ways!

I'm so jealous.. we haven't gone to see it yet.. I may just have to kill my husband and go see it myself...
I wouldn't say I am a huge trekkie, but I did quite fancy having pointy ears...I mostly watched original and next generation.. and most but not all the movies.. Spock was always the best character..
