We’re discussing the new release Star Trek: Into Darkness! Yep. Back-and-forth banter, complete with quotes, GIFs, and rabbit-trails. Typical Notebook Sisters style. Enjoy!
But beforewe do…we just want to say thaaaanks to everyone who commented/voted on our blogging slump post. It was awesome. We love you guys!
MIME: I have made a vow never to give you information that could potentially alter your destiny. That being said, Star Trek is amazing, and you should definitely watch it.
CAIT: It was good. But not good enough.
MIME: Yikes. Looks like someone didn’t let the Khan sleep.
CAIT: I WILL STEP OVER YOUR COLD CORPSE — Oh. Um. (Is Mum reading this?)
MIME: Ah, yeah. Okay. Star Trek did have its failings, I won’t lie —
CAIT: Vulcans never lie.
MIME: I’m expressing multiple attitudes simultaneously. Shut up.
MIME: Oh, come on. What was your problem with it, anyway?
CAIT: Well, first of all: I laughed a LOT. I like to laugh (ha ha ha haaaa), but I think it was too much like The Avengers.
MIME: The fans have to be hardcore geeks and nerds to really appreciate it. It’s such an epic Geek-fest that the viewers feel duty bound to adore it. It’s hilarious and the special effects were pretty amazing, but the plot wasn’t superb (it was okay, but not developed quite like it could have been) and the movie lacked details and subplots.
CAIT: Exactly. Like The Avengers.
MIME: You’re going to get us mugged.
CAIT: Okay! Okay! Wait! I ADORE The Avengers.
MIME: (Suck up.)
CAIT: I do. Be SILENT, Vulcan. I do love The Avengers series and the Star Trek (is it a series? A duo?) thing. I like to geek out in an un-truth-geeky way (because I haven’t read the comics/watched the old TV series).
CAIT: (I’m ignoring you now, miss.) But I have FUN. I laugh. I like them. But I think they need more. Speaking of Mime’s above GIF, that girl had no point. Didn’t think we’d notice. But we did.
MIME: In fact, she’s only in the movie for the hair.
CAIT: Got to have a blonde chick.
MIME: Yeah, because Kirk’s feeling left out now that Uhura and Spock are both buddy-buddy. Also, she was, like, creepy. I thought she was going to morph into some kind of alien thing and eat everyone.
CAIT: Someone’s been watching too much Prometheus. (Or listening to me talk about Prometheus. Were you aware the scientist gave birth to a squid? Well? Were you?)
MIME: Also, no body bled but Kirk, which was kind of weird. The superhuman guy, yeah, don’t bleed. That’s cool. But I’m pretty sure Vulcans have blood.
CAIT: Want me to prick you, Mime? You know. Find out for sure…
MIME: Ha. Ha.
CAIT: So! Positives! As said, the effects. were. awesome. Especially all the explosions. Everything exploded! That is a HUGE plus. We love things going boom-boom. Also, the humour and banter was good. After all, Bones and Scotty were in it.
MIME: Also, the tension. There was no shortage of stress-inducing tension. I mean, the bad guy got “captured,” in a glass prison, and after the Loki incident, I couldn’t help but be very concerned. Also. Chekov’s switch in ranks to becoming a red shirt. Extremely stressful.
CAIT: And we never knew who was captain of the Enterprise! I mean, it swapped hands at least 4 times in the first hour.
MIME: Kirk, Spock, Sulu, Pike… hot potato.
CAIT: HOT potato, hot potato! WOOH! WOOH!
MIME: Are you seriously singing the Wiggles on our blog?
CAIT: What? I have a 2-year-old nephew. What do you think we do all day?
MIME: Analyse how Dora the Explorer gets her shirt over her head?
CAIT: I have a theory. It involves subtle zippers and removable body parts.
MIME: Let’s wrap up before this turns into Coraline. Star Trek is a lot of fun. It’s quite an intellectual watch (meaning that sometimes I had no idea what they were talking about) —
CAIT: Oh. Maybe you’re not Vulcan after all. Aren’t they super intelligent…??
MIME: We must maintain the prime directive. Now wrap up.
CAIT: Dang it, Jim, I’m a doctor, not a torpedo technician.
MIME: Fine. From us to you, our Klingons:
