J.J. hits another one out of the park

Last week I went to the Star Trek Premiere. 
It was cool. Samuel L. Jackson sat behind me. 
I wanted to offer him my seat because I wasn't sure if I could relax knowing that 

But the highlight of the night was without a doubt, the movie.
It is so good. It is so beautiful. And it sets up the franchise so well. I don't want to give anything away, so that's all I'm going to say about it. 

At the party there was a photo booth to take pictures with Star Trek gear. Here are mine. 

Spock wig and communicator (I think)
I didn't realize this was a Borg mask until I saw the picture. The photo area was kinda dark.
I made sure the next guy got it right.

I love that last picture. It's a keeper!

Rachel Snyder said...

So did you introduce yourself to Samuel L. Jackson, or talk with him at all? And would someone like myself who has never been into Star Trek like the movie, or do you sort of have to be in the know to fully appreciate it?

Sarah said...

I'm excited to see it and those pics are so great!

JohnLeMay said...

Two words: Star Trek/IMAX

(The forward slash doesn't count as a word.)

AtomBlonde said...

So super cool!

I'm mega geeked out to see this film.
The characters are like old friends, and seeing them as youngins' makes me all sorts of emotional. (I got kinda teary just from the previews! Shhh, don't tell!)

I hope that phaser was just set to stun...

Please Type Legibly said...

Can't wait for it!

ArtforLife42 said...

Sitting behind Samuel L. Jackson would be like peeing next to Tom Cruise....once he goes, you go a little....if Jackson laughs, you're laughing right along with him. I'm so excited to see it. I'm jealous of your vulcan ears.

blaqbird said...

haha love the pics! I'm so excited for Star Trek!

r00tgurl said...

You look so coy in the last picture!!

Petra said...

Sounds like a great night. JJ was hilarious on Jimmy Kimmel.

: ) P

Julie said...

The movie looks really good. I was surprised because my husband really wants to see it and he is a hardcore Star Wars guy.

Dr. Megan said...

Aww! I think it's so cool to hear that famous folks are fans of other famous folks...keeps it all in perspective. I'm glad you got to go to the premiere - that sounds wicked awesome!!

Bethany James Leigh Shady said...

i'm interested to see how many people will think that justin is damon.

Tv Addict said...

I totally agree with your thoughts on the movie. I got to see it in Austin and it blew me away. JJ definitely got it right! Glad you liked it!

Hoku said...

Oh, I can't wait! I am so jealous! I have been a fan since the original series.

Tina said...

My husband and I are Star Trek TNG nerds. We're excited to see it - Love J.J. Abrams stuff too! (Have you seen Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog????)

Anyway.. love the pics too!

MissClaraItzel said...

OMG yes! I saw Star Trek two weeks ago and loved it. JJ did a great job with that one, but hey, i totally knew he would. I just want it to premiere here so I can go watch it again!

Dave said...

That is sooo flippin sweet! :)

Ruskin said...

That's nothing. Samuel L. Jackson once bought a bin from my nephew's shop in Liverpool.

Miztification said...

I'm glad to hear it. I'm looking forward to seeing this.

@Tina- I'm a Star Trek TNG nerd too.

Eugen Caitaz said...

Frankly I would say - you are very fit this wig.!
In a wig you are like the Beatles((((:-)

Pam said...

I can't wait to see this film. That's awesome Samuel L. sat behind you. Did you get to talk to him?

Eugen Caitaz said...

I think that justin is damon.

MsYvone said...

You're looking mighty Crafty (ala beastie boys) in those spock ears. Way to work it! I can't wait to see this film!

Lulu LaBonne said...

Great photos and I'm very envious as I'm dead keen to see that movie - I wouldn't be able to cope with Sam behind me though

Andrea said...

lol, LOVE the Spock wig! :)

Avinash said...

I love that last picture. It's a keeper!

Anissa said...

I won local preview tickets so I got to see it Sat, and all I can say is Wow! That was an awesome movie!!!! There was a lot of audience applause throughout.

holleyb said...

You should of posted this today ... it is Star Wars Day ... May the Fourth (be with you!!)

vvb32 reads said...

yay for you! thanks for sharing your pics. i definitely like the ears one the best.

Kristianna said...

The proctologist pose with the glove is the one that makes me laugh. Great photos!

Jules said...

You lucky bastage!

Unknown said...

I am proud to say that I did figure out it was Beth's brother. Though, I did wonder if it was Damon at first. Very funny.

I'm not a Trekkie but I'm looking forward to seeing this movie. Mostly for Simon Pegg.

Heather said...

I was buying tickets for a broadway show years ago and Samuel L. Jackson walked up to the Will Call window, with his little cap on and said "Tickets for Jackson, Samuel L." I got the biggest kick out of him using his full stage name :-)

Tink said...

Those pictures are hilarious! If I'd had Samuel L. Jackson sitting behind me, I might have been inclinded to say, "Did you hear? There are snakes in this movie theater!"

abbreviated said...

-sqee!- Sammy J! I think I would have done the same thing... "zomg it is sammy j and he is totally sitting behind me... zomggg."

haha, =D

Stacy Disarrayed said...

Oh good! I can't wait to see it!!!!

Anonymous said...

My hub is counting down to Star Trek. But I had to check if you have seen this:
It's hilarious, though I am so sorry about your character, Jorge!

M@ said...

redelf said...

I love the pictures!!!

My whole family is taking the day off on Friday to go. I had such a crush on Spock when I was a kid!! I am soooooooooooo excited to see the movie!

Samuel L. Jackson...man I would have been excited and scared at the same time to have him behind me.

Laurie said...

Awesome pics :)

I can`t wait to see Star Trek!! I`m going to see it next weekend I`m looking forward to Zachary Quinto as Spock.

Christina Bauer said...

Thanks so much for the review! I usually never listen to others opinions on movies becasue they never have the same taste as me. The fact that you know the differences b/w "Star Trek" from "Star Wars", I feel I can make an exception. Since I'm here, having never been her before ( think too much Star Trek in my head right now), I would like to add how much I appreciate the work you do on Lost. To me, you are the heart of the show. Hurley does offer many momments resulting in laughter, but the way you are able to put through his sensitive side, and sometimes the grounded voice of truth. I really hope we get to see more of Hurley and learn more about him before the show signoff next year. What a bummer for us fans, but I bet you have bigger and better things to do - like finally get to relax. Thanks for keeping entertained!

ValMo said...

Amazing. That story makes me smile from start to finish. The pictures definitely add to the adventure.

Ash said...

u r too funny! i wish we were friends in highschool lol

MeekoRouse said...

last pic is totally a keeper!

Am defnitely looking forward to the new Trek film.. glad to hear you liked it.. I get the impression you have good taste. =)


You seem like a down to earth, laid back dude. Stay that way. So many actors of your success seem so unfriendly and "greater than thou". You would be a fun and good friend to have. Many blessings to you!

Pat R said...

Everything about this new Star Trek was great as far as i'm concerned, except at the theater the reel kept jumping and the sound went out a couple of times... why are movie theaters still using film i wonder?

Unknown said...

I always wonder what happens when two well-know actors meet for the first time. Is it as awkwark as it is for the rest of us mortals? The secret I guess is to be "normal" and don't assume that the other guy knows you from your work. This is all irrelevant to me, because 1)I'm not a famous anything. 2)I go a bit star-struck when I meet famous people, so probably wouldn't have the courage to say hi anyway. Except Patrick Stewart, he was a really nice guy. Looking foward to Star Trek, big time!

What prince-o3-tour would be bettre in my opinion would be to remove the wrist straps and the skin, and instead make it a 2 babolat pure drive, 2 stereing wheels, 1 baseball bat and 1 golf club. Still, this package is great value for your money. When my wife informed me that Emporio Armani was now pushing its own signature wilson k six, the EA7, I’ve got to admit, I was intrigued.

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.
