Nerdy Ravings: Star Trek Into Darkness

Yay, another Nerdy Ravings! And it's about Star Trek! Woo!

I was super excited for this movie to come out. So, obviously, I went to see it as soon as I could manage.

I like Star Trek in general and have a couple other Star Trek-related posts (see Star Trek and Technology and Women in Star Trek). And I really enjoyed the last Star Trek movie. And then came Into Darkness. Where's bad?

And then came Benedict Cumberbatch. Yummy.

Ok, Star Trek Into Darkness.

I will not post any spoilers, but it blew my mind! I loved it! And it had all those silly little things in it to make you laugh, like the last one did.

I always like Spock and Bones and usually Uhura. Spock has always been a great favorite, which is part of why I liked the first (new) movie so much. Kirk has never been a favorite, but I liked him OK in the two newest movies. So Spock, of course, was wonderful. I'm not sure how you could not like him, really. And the strong bromance between him and Kirk was priceless! Crack me up. Bones was as hysterical as ever. Sulu was sort of minor, sadly, and Uhura was her usual, kick-ass self. And her little tiff with Spock made me laugh. Is that bad? I'm OK with them being a couple, but it was funny to watch them fight.

And then, of course, Benedict Cumberbatch. Mmmm. SOOOOOO good to watch. He was so intense and engaging. And usually gorgeously drool-worthy.

And one of my new favorites? Scotty. I have always liked Scotty just fine and I loved Simon Pegg as Scotty in the first one. In this one, he really has out-done himself! He was so delightful to watch! He was funny and charming and just wonderful. I loved every minute that he was on the screen. Well done Simon Pegg!

And, as you know, Benedict Cumberbatch. Lets just wallow in that a while...

OK! I wanted to share this post from Cupcake about this movie (but it does have spoilers, so beware!): Movie Review: Star Trek Into Darkness. Enjoy! Also, check out her Tumblr page for lots of Benedict Cumberbatch deliciousness.

And here is a good review written by my boyfriend, Isaac: Tertiary Integration: Movie Review: Star Trek Into Darkness. He pays a lot more attention to the making of the movie, not just the plot and characters.

Also, because it is sort of relevant and definitely nerdy, I wanted to share this ad with you that Wyatt showed me: Zachary Quinto vs. Leonard Nimoy: "The Challenge." It might be one of my new favorite things. I laughed so hard.

And that is it for this episode of Nerdy Ravings! See you next time!


  1. Benedict Cumberbatch. I have decided I'd happily marry him and have his children. Just yummy.

    Mmmmmmmm might go look at what pics I can share on my Tumblr ....

    1. Yes! More pics! There is always room for more!

      And who would not be happy to marry him and have his babies? Don't tell Isaac I said that... ;)

    2. Your secret is safe with me. Although to make things easier for you, I'll just take Benedict off your hands ;)

      And thanks for linking my blog again!

    3. Oh no, that's OK, thanks anyway...

      And of course! Thanks for sharing mine!
