- Went to see Star Trek: Into Darkness with the missus on opening night. Thanks to Empire Extra, we strolled in 5 minutes before the show and took our seats second from the top and in the centre. I thought the film was really well done, and liked it quite a bit more than Abrams' 2009 original. Purists might scoff at it, but I like the reboot. My wife, who was never a Trekkie, but did watch The Next Generation when she was young, loved the film so much that on the drive home she suggested we start buying the original series on iTunes and watch it along with the original films.

Update Number Whatever
Okay, the updates have fallen by the wayside, as has much else on this blog. Hopefully that will improve but I promise nothing!
