Against my better judgement, I went to see the second installment of the Star Trek reboot the other day. I could go on at length about all the things that are wrong with this movie — as a stand alone example of cinema and as part of the Star Trek pantheon.
Rather than do that, in lieu of a real photo for my Photo a Day project, I’ll offer this image that I recently spied on the Internet, obviously created by someone who feels the same way I (and presumably many others) do, vis-à-vis: Star Trek, Into Darkness and its director, J. J. Abrams.
This is one big-ass mother of a shopping mall in downtown Bangkok. I stopped in here the other day to catch a Thai movie, as might be getting a gig writing arts and entertainment for an expat website and joint print publication. It’s a startup, so I’m not holding my breath, but there is financial backing, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Anyway, I was on my way back down to the mezzanine level — the cinema is on the fifth floor of Siam Paragon — when this rather M.C. Etcher-esque view of the escalator shaft caught my eye.
Incidentally, I actually liked this movie. It’s a Thai romantic comedy. I never thought I would utter these words, but it’s true. On the whole — the movie is not without flaws, to be sure — I liked it. And ask any of my friends. I generally f*&^%ing hate movies.
