(Couldn't believe she would ask me if this was too much viewing for one movie. Yeesh!)

I look forward to your review, and will share mine on your thread. Take care, SB!
You can't get my wife within a mile of a Star Trek movie...lucky you!

I'm a stickler for completeness...

It's not like I write War & Peace, gang, while the event happens, mainly I jot down key words or things to remind me later of what I saw or heard...

Jotting down keywords is a smart idea for reviewing. At the time of the scene, it could convey a feeling from you that you can instantly recall from a word. Or maybe writing down a word that someone says and put it in quotes.

Really effective at remembering what happened in the movie.

You just need to find the right incentive. Bribery can work wonders.

Nah, my wife just plain doesn't like Star Trek. I know part of it is she doesn't understand a lot of it, and therefore it's "stupid," but she also just doesn't get into Trek/Wars type movies.

She does like other forms of sci-fi though.

And she's a soap opera fan. Now let's talk a genre that bends the rules of nature and reality...for instance, how two kids can be born about the same time in the show, but five years later one will be in their pre-teens, the other will only be about 6...

Or how, in order to suit increasingly adult storylines for a character, a girl who is 16 at the beginning of the year will be 18 by the end of the year, then amazingly about a year later will be 21...while her best friend is still only 17...

Got my ticket for Sunday evening. The first time I found a good seat in my usually visited cinema. Before Sunday it either was already sold out or it was shown on times like 6.00 am
