    Star Trek Into Darkness at the Grove

    Friday with no real plans, i talked to Ben online about watching Star Trek into Darkness, and the only place we could find to reserve decent enough seats was the Pacific Theaters at the Grove.  Joy and I headed there early to grab a bite to eat at Nancy Silverton new burger joint Short Order at the Farmers Market.  The food was ok, but the pickles chips were too salty, the potato spuds were huge chunks of fried potatoes (i’m a shoe string kind of guy), and the burger was decent but not making the ranks of my burger list i’m working on.

    bluth-companyWe bumped into a promotional appearance of the Arrested Development Stair Car for the series relaunch which i’m sure excited about.

    despicable-me2-adAt the theater they had a fun Despicable Me 2 Whack a Minion display with a real hammer to hit them, but too bad it was either too loud, or it didn’t make enough sound when you hit them. Now onto the movie:

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Star Trek into Darkness is the second movie of the Star Trek reboot series. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie more than i expected. I guess i had low expectations of the movie, but probably because i don’t really have a strong background in the original series, but enough to know enough to understand the small homages to the original series.

    Spoilers from here on out:
