i haven't figured out how the dreamwidth version of LJ-cut works and i can't be bothered right now (2.15 a.m.) trying to find it out. but i'll try to keep the star trek spoilers to a minimum. if you want to watch this movie maximum un-spoiled, just stop from here.

according to wikipedia, the writing artform of "slash" first developed in the star trek fandom, in lack of decent female charakters to pair either kirk or spock with. and i'm pretty sure mr. j.j. abrahmas knew that, when he planned this movie out. at least my evil little slash-loving heart was quite satisfied. you can easily pair everyone with everyone!* mass orgy! free love! muahahahahaa! thank you mr. abrahmas!
*and i bet you everything that some twisted slashy mind will pair spock/spock sooner or later.

well, beside my obvious interest, the rest of the movie was pretty good too. i'm no star trek fan and the only expectation i had was to be well entertained and i was. our die-hard star trek nerd complained that it was too funny every now and then, but i quite enjoyed the jokes and slapsticks. the villian was somewhat weak and the plot had some flaws, but oh well, so what. but they did a great job on casting the actors. they fit perfectly.

so, if you're looking for some light entertainment and some sizzling-yet-to-be-writen-slash, go watch star trek. :)
