Taking some time on the weekend to waste a little time, I caught up on some movies. “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” [6/10] was extremely uncomfortable at times, and oh so predictable, but still enjoyable enough to get a passing mark. The Spock on TV joke during the movie helped me figure out the voice of Sentinal Prime, who I recognized eventually as Leonard Nimoy’s, but couldn’t name at first. They later had him make another Star Trek joke, claiming “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few”. On Friday I’d watched the end of “Star Trek Generations” [7/10] and all of “Star Trek First Contact” [10/10]. I finally finished watching “X Men First Class” [8/10] after starting it months ago, then not having an easy means on hand to watch the conclusion after the Russian mansion is stormed.
All that wasn’t enough. I also watched the alternate reality WWII film “Inglorious Basterds” [8/10] and found it less gruesome than I expected for a Tarantino movie.
