Quick Review: Star Trek movie

I saw the Star Trek movie this morning and liked it. It was a good flick. I'll probably watch it again on DVD. (Disclaimer: I am a casual Star Trek fan.) Action packed, funny, and enjoyable. I think having familiarity with the series helps, but isn't necessary.

[potential spoilers]

favorite moments
  • Wictor Wictor
  • is the parking brake on?
  • spock getting the girl (even if I had problems with it)

weirdest moments:
  • giant ice squid
  • Spock and Uhura
  • how many precipices can Kirk be dangled off?

make or take?

Here's an interesting article on about whether it is cheaper to make or buy items like yogurt, bagels, jam, etc. It was interesting and inspired me to try and make yogurt. We'll see how that goes.
