Well, the Star Trek exhibit was pretty amazing, except for the fact that they didn't allow ANY PHOTOGRAPHY WHATSOEVER. WTH?
You could get your picture taken in the Captain's chair and on the transporter by the museum staff for "only twenty-one dollars," said the little man dressed like Spock and SO not pulling it off. But after the forty-six bucks we paid to get in, I just couldn't justify the additional expense.
What surprised me the most as we wandered through the weapons display was how closely they resembled the toy guns my kids have at home. We learned that the creators of said weapons only gave them enough detail to look good on television, which meant they looked kinda cheesy in real life.
This weekend I'm planning on getting my English governess on when I go see the latest adaptation of one of my favorite books of all time.
I can hardly contain my excitement! Reviews on Rotten Tomatoes look very encouraging (Yes, I look at reviews. Yes, I've taken a lot of crap about it from all the anti-review moviegoers out there including my kids. Rest assured, reviews are only one small factor I use in deciding whether or not to see a film). I'm taking my stash of Kleenex with me. I always feel very refreshed after a good cry at the theater.
Before I go, I saw this short piece on 60 Minutes last week that fascinated me so I thought I would share...
Anyone seen a good movie lately? Any films you're eagerly awaiting?
Hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!
