Made it to the new Star Trek movie yesterday at the Regal on Transit. I’ve never been an hardcore Trekkie or Trekker, just liked them in it’s-a-good-show-but-I-hope-to-meet-a-woman kind of way. After some manic scrambling that goes along doing anything with a group, some of whom I never saw that day, I got in and can tell you that it meets the hype, is a lot of fun, doesn’t take the original too seriously and you’ll have a grand time. The Regal staff looked a little overwhelmed at the volume of people, which reminded me why this wasn’t one of my favorite haunts.
It was a minor victory for me as my son had wanted come with me, but I had the extra bonus of my lovely 14 year old daughter wanting to come with us. She wanted to come! Suck on that other WNY fathers! I don’t completely suck as a Dad. For that alone, I was going to come out ahead. There were some largely minor issues involving a potential IMAX screening. We settled for a later one and had an great time.
Got to indulge my inner sci-fi geek and be a cool Dad at the same time. Win-Win
