Leave it to JJ Abrams to make me a TREKKIE. It was inevitable really. I love science fiction and I am a total star wars fan. (I mean, how could I not be a star wars fan when my little brother used to get up at 6am every morning and beg my parents to put it on. Throughout an entire summer I awoke to find myself in a land far far away.) I also love the Alien movies, Terminator movies, and the 5th Element. AND (nerd alert!) I used to watch the sci fi channel from time to time. I watched this one movie about a science guy who was so obsessed with cobra snakes that he created a formula from their venom to slowly transform his assistant in to a cobra snake. The irony was that once the assistant was a snake, he bit the science guy and killed him. You would think I would have seen this movie once because I was super bored or whatever one day but I actually saw it twice, years and years apart. I have no idea what it's called though. I'm sorry because I know anyone who reads this is going to want to run out and rent it or add it to the netflix list. Anyway, so JJ Abrams Star Trek was a fantastic movie. The hair and makeup was phenomenal. A lot of times I am distracted by crappy wigs or super obvious fake blood but not with this one! I didn't even recognize Eric Bana! Super hot Eric was so well transformed into his character. Good job hair and make up team and good job JJ, as always.
