Oh captain, my captain


Say hello to my new screen saver.  I like it because James Tiberius Kirk follows me wherever I go in my office.  And he has that little mischievous grin on his face which I love.

Speaking of love, how have we not discussed how I loved the movie Star Trek?  I went on opening weekend, dragging two boys who were prepared to be unimpressed, a friend who had no interest whatsoever and a pregnant lady. 

Now I can’t speak for them all, but one can only assume by the debriefing afterwards that we all had a fine time.  I know Captain Kirk was a big help in making the movie so awesome for me.  Him and all the sexual innuendos that were flying up and down our row. 

“He can beam me up anytime.” or “Loading torpedo Captain Kirk.”  or “Full throttle ahead Sulu.”  or “I bet he has boldly gone where no man has gone before…”

I kept trying to throw “to infinity and beyond” in there.  Clearly…that is Buzz Lightyear and I have my action/sci-fi/adventure catch phrases mixed up.

But back to the Kirk.  I first adored Chris Pine in the movie Just My Luck


Don’t you remember when it came out?  It was the summer of 2006.  Me and those two 12-year-old girls were the only ones in that Oklahoma City theater.  Not Lohan’s best moment, but Chris was all I cared about at the time.

Then I Netflicked Blind Dating.  Let’s just say that the good Captain did not score an academy award nomination, but the infatuation did continue.  I’ve been cyber stalking him ever since.  I can’t wait to meet him so he can go ahead and start falling in love with me. 

What did you guys think about the movie?  Did you tell someone later that you were checking their frequency?  Or was that just me?  Did you think Spok was as adorable as I did?  Will you be seeing it again this weekend?

Umm…yeah…I AM a little freaked out about where ever I’m standing in my cube, he’s looking at me… But, it’s all good! 😉 Haven’t seen the movie yet, however, this might be enough to make me go.

Chris Pine was also in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. I thought he was charming in that one as well!!

I haven’t seen Star Trek just yet, but I have heard it’s amazing. I plan to see it very soon.

I liked Star Trek too – how in the world did Spock become sexy? And I also liked Chris Pine in Princess Diaries 2, as well – he was yummy in both flicks!

lincee – you have HAVE to see princess diaries 2. just like becca mentioned. he is so freaking ADORABLE in that movie – and the fountain scene is worth rewinding a few times. i know the first princess diaries movie was a complete joke, but trust me, the 2nd one is way better (warning: cheesiness factor sometimes get overloaded – thumb wars under a tree in the dark – come ON!).

Do you think it is okay to put this as my screen saver if I’m married, haha? I can’t get over how incredibly dreamy he is! During the movie I kept thinking, he can be my captain all day long…haha!

Becca…I love that movie. That is where my crush began! I have never had any interest in Star Trek but he definitely makes it worth it!

I’m dying to see it! I want to see Star Trek and Angels & Demons this weekend.

I have been following Chris Pine is Princess Diaries 2. Definitely dragged my sister along to see Just My Luck and seeing him in Star Trek last week was a big draw! Thought I would pass this along: http://perezhilton.com/2009-05-15-completely-gratuitous-192

As Perez says, completely gratutious but gorgeous!

Riggins was my desktop photo before he was replaced with the good Captain. I like to think he would call me “4” if he knew me. Clearly, I never had a football number (like six) but I do have a cool single digit birthday number. In the words of Paris Hilton, “He’s hot.” Coach Taylor isn’t so bad either!

Star Trek = LOVED it. What a great movie! I would definitely go back 🙂

Also, I was wondering where I had seen him before – Blind Dating was a cute flick!

I loved this movie and I would totally make this my screen saver too, but my husband would be jealous!

Even if you had never heard of Star Trek, this is a really good movie and you aren’t left out in the cold cause you don’t know the characters.

I hadn’t considered seeing this until reading your review 🙂 If you want another eye candy filled movie check out Wolverine! Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynlods, and Taylor Kitsch (Riggins from Friday Night Lights). Good stuff!

And no one mentioned the Dead Poets Society reference…..oh Lincee, you are pure genious!

May 19, 2009 7:14 am

oh my goodness… if y’all haven’t seen Star Trek, you MUST. I L-O-V-E-D it. As did my friend I convinced to go. And she had no desire to see it. But, she loved the movie and we both fell in love with Chris Pine all over again. He alone is worth seeing the movie numerous times!! (ditto AggieFan on the title of the post. awesome.)
