I have not been on here in what seems like forrrrever! (okay, so like a week, but still...).
It's Friday here at work and quite a ghost town...everyone is out, taking advantage of the long weekend. Luckily, I will finish work a little bit early today, so I will take advantage of the time by going swimsuit shopping. I admit, I hate and dread this time of year and I've been putting this off for a while. But alas, the time has come to do so for Memorial Day is on the horizon, which unofficially marks the start of swim season, at least here in Southern California.
I'm also FINALLY getting my new set of keys for my car today. Sadly, my lost keys never materialized...but at least now my new ones will be reprogrammed so no one can take off in my car. I'm also seeing the 'Star Trek' movie tonight (yes, you may go ahead and call me an nerd). To be honest, I never really watch the show growing up, but the movie looks quite excellent.
'Terminator Salvation,' on the other hand, was so confusing. I think I spent most of the movie trying to figure out how Kyle Reese could be younger than John Conner when Reese is Conner's father and everything is taking place in the future...so shouldn't he technically be older than John Conner? I guess some sort of time travel is involved. So if Reese is sent to the future by Sarah Conner to save John Conner, isn't it a self-fulfilling prophecy because it wouldn't have happened to begin with if the past wasn't driven by the future? If no intervention ever took place by Sarah Conner, would John really have become the resistance leader he is? If you're just as confused as I am after reading this, welcome to the club. I suppose it would help if I could remember what happened in the first 3 movies (I have a bad habit of seeing movies and then forgetting how they go).
So is the movie worth seeing? Yes...but somehow the plot and story are messy and get lost amid the action and the exploding robots. I felt like the director simply wanted to blow as much stuff up as he could during those two hours...which he did, admittedly, with a lot of flair. But the movie leaves some sort of unsettling feeling and is not really satisfying. It was over-hyped for no reason.
