I have mentioned several thousand times that I am more than a teensy bit excited about J.J. Abrams reinterpretation of Star Trek. When the tickets finally went on sale this week, I clicked over to confirm a midnight showing the night before the release. Well, there’s an early release all right. It is at 7 p.m. the night before because apparently, Star Trek fans can’t stay up past 10 p.m. That’s just not right! I went to the midnight release of Watchmen and I stayed awake for the entire thing. I stayed up for a few hours AFTERWARDS too. I have been to more than one Harry Potter midnight movie. Okay, that was with my teenage children, so it probably doesn’t count. Still, this is a little bit insulting. What else are they going to do? Will the local cafeteria be providing Star Trek audiences creamed corn and jello instead of popcorn and M&M’s? How about an intermission halfway thru the movie? Two hours is a long time to go without a potty break. Mr. Abrams, I am the same age as you. Could you at least pretend that we are not geezers?
