Star Trek Imax

Star Trek is playing at the Imax theatre a kilometre from my home, and so, what the heck, went to see the film for the third time today (and the first time in Imax). It is stunning on the big screen -- the clarity and detail is amazing (in a real Imax theatre, at least).

I'm amazed by how good the makeup on the Vulcan ears is -- it's flawless, no matter how big you see it. But why are the computer displays at the Vulcan school in English instead of Vulcan? ;)

And, yes, the film is just as enjoyable on a third viewing as a first; this one will become a classic.

Don't make us hold an intervention for you, Rob.

I note that you say "in a real Imax theatre, at least." Are you alluding to this?I'm in Australia and a few weeks ago I saw Watchmen in the new "Imax" theatre here in Perth. I was underwhelmed, having experienced real Imax before it closed a couple of years ago. It just wasn't the same. I certainly wouldn't pay extra for the new one again!

On another note, Star Trek IS awesome!

Yes, that's precisely what I was alluding to. The Imax theatre near my home is a real one, and TREK looked fabulous -- quite noticably more detail and vividness than in the two regular theatres I had previously seen it in.

Presumably Vulcans learn a number of languages ;)
