Managed to break my wifi :( It still works for my iPad but my laptop refuses to connect. Hopefully it’ll recover on its own by the time I get home from work tomorrow.
Am I the only one who watches Once Upon a Time and remembers Uncle’s advice from Jackie Chan Adventures?
“Magic must defeat magic!”
You’d think they’d have learned by now.
So I think I’m going to apply for the SciShow writer position (link here for interested parties: http://jobs.nerdfighteria.com/display.php?position=scishow_writer) and I need a writing sample. Well, two. One that is specific for SciShow (any topic) and one that just shows my writing ability…
Now, here’s the problem. The science one can only be 1000 words. The other sample can literally be any writing I’ve ever done. It doesn’t have a limit posted.
I could send them the first five chapters of my book if I wanted.
I could send them fan fiction.
I could send them fan fiction about the first five chapters of my book.
But seriously I’m going to post some writing up here so I can submit it (it has to be posted online) and feel free to ignore it (it might be a long piece).
Okay, so this review will be in two parts: the first will be my spoiler free reactions and the second will be under the cut with spoilers.
I’m not going to lie, I had a stupid grin on my face for the entire movie. I don’t grin often, but I was grinning like a fool.
I honestly think it’s because I had low expectations for this movie. I can’t explain why, but I figured lightning
in space wouldn’t strike twice. I avoided spoilers like the plague and didn’t read/watch any interviews or look at sites for the movie. I went in knowing only what I had seen in the trailers.
This was probably the happiest I’ve been in seeing a movie in theaters since The Hobbit. I enjoyed Iron Man 3 but I’m more of a Thor girl so it wasn’t the perfect movie to me.
I liked how the relationships between the characters were at a level of comfort. The crew has spent some time together and are interacting like the family we knew they’d become.
The plot was tight and some of the dialogue was incredible (snarky Spock is the best Spock). I could think of only two plot holes (below the cut) and they were both minor and easily handwaved.
Part 2 (spoilers below)
Hmmm? Strange, I went to the 8 o’ clock premiere and it was about 70% full. Saw it in imax too
I went to a rather small theater so I’m guessing everyone else went to the bigger places with Imax and UltraScreen and the earlier showings. I worked until 11:30 otherwise I would have gone to an earlier showing.
But the other four people were good sports :)
