Day Three: Savannah

Posted on Friday, May 8th, 2009

Dave!It may appear that I'm writing two entries today. The truth is that I'm writing three entries, because I am also guest-blogging over at Wayne's place.

Savannah is arguably one of the most beautiful cities on earth. I've only been here once before, and barely had time to drive around for a bit before I had to be on my way. This time around probably won't be much different, because I'm working right up until the day I leave. But I still manage to sneak in glances when I can. Today on my lunch I wandered downtown and meandered through some of the beautiful squares that dot the city. These swathes of green are beautiful refuges that, along with the remarkable buildings, give Savannah it's unique character...

After finishing up work I was going to explore the city at night, but decided to relax at a movie theater instead. I'm still recovering from my bought with food poisoning, and watching a good film would take my mind off things. But which movie to choose? The Hannah Montana Movie or Star Trek?

I went with Star Trek...

The movie was shockingly brilliant. It somehow managed to respect the material that came before it (literally!) but strike out in a bold new direction that is positively thrilling. Not only is this film dangerously close to dethroning Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home as my favorite Star Trek movies... but it may very well be one of the best science fiction flicks ever made. It's that good.

And now... let's see if some sleep will make me all better.

    *SQUEE* TO THE STAR TREK REVIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Re. Star Trek – I agree. I went in not expecting much and was WOWED at every turn. Good plot, fabulous acting from almost everyone, good action…I’m amazed.

    Enjoy Savannah dude.

    I think I might need to add this to my must-see list, but better than KHAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNN?!?!?! Say it ain’t so!

  4. Wow, those pictures of Savannah are gorgeous. So glad you chose Star Trek! I’m using that movie as my reward if I manage to finish all my homework before the weekend is up.

    I’ve made a list of places on this coast which I have never visited yet want to and Savannah is definitely on it! Y’all know how I love the South. ;)

    And seriously? I’m not a huge fan of the original Star Trek series and always liked TNG better. I did like the movies, especially Khan. However, like you said, this new movie was fucking badass and made me fall in love with Star Trek all over again.

    Couldn’t agree more about Star Trek. In fact, this is the first movie I’ve ever been to where I actually wanted to stay in my seat and watch it a 2nd time.

    Savannah is simply gorgeous. Love the pictures!

    Savannah is a very pretty city. You make me want to go back.

    And the Star Trek movie is a game changer. Very interesting to see where they go from here.

    I saw Star Trek over the weekend. I’m gonna have to take my Hubs now. It was freakin’ AWESOME!!! Can’t believe how well they did on some of the casting, too!

  10. I haven’t seen the new Star Trek yet but I have a hard time imagining it being close to Wrath Of Khan. I’ve seen that movie so many times since I was a kid and it *never* gets old.

  11. I need to go to Savannah for longer than just two separate weekend trips, so that I can get to know the town better. Glad you’ve had a great trip! And I completely agree with you about Star Trek. Tres kick-ass!
