Brilliant makeup blogger Sahily recreated the “Star Trek Into Darkness” movie poster image ON HER EYELID as part of her Summer Movie Makeup series. The craziest part is Sahily is not even a “Star Trek” fan; she was just inspired by the movie art. She says this was an artistic experiment, and “not a wearable look,” but I beg to differ. In fact, I think Amelia and I have found our new daily makeup routine. [Pretty In Pigment via Neatorama]
Much fuss has been made about the lack of female representation in the new movie “Star Trek Into Darkness.” While I adored the movie — and Winona and I both think that it’s kind of a chick flick — I completely agree that there should have been more women in the movie and that the ones in the film should have been given more to do. (Thankfully, the various “Star Trek” series have taught us plenty of feminist lessons over the years.) One of the scenes that has bothered a lot of feminist fans of the series is the one in which Alice Eve’s character, Carol Marcus, appears in just a bra and panties for seemingly no reason but to titillate. J.J. Abrams responded to the hullabaloo on “Conan” last night, by debuting a deleted scene from the film in which Benedict Cumberbatch’s character is seen showering. Droooooool. More — real!!! — wet ‘n’ wild sexy mole rat action, please! [Conan]
On the surface, “Star Trek Into Darkness” certainly looks like a typical dude movie. It’s got huge explosions, spaceships, fighting, and futuristic weapons. Obviously we would have loved it even if it was the most manly movie in history, but after seeing it for ourselves we were surprised to discover that, in many ways, it’s actually a total chick flick. How is this possible, you ask? Let us count the ways… Keep reading »
In honor of “Star Trek Into Darkness,” which opens TO-FUCKING-DAY, I had planned on devoting this entire week to the series. STAR TREK WEEK, I was calling it, because I am creative. And then I got strep throat and was basically comatose in bed from Monday through Wednesday, returning yesterday to work quietly from my sickbed. Star Trek Week was ruined. OR WAS IT? See, having a week devoted to “Star Trek” on The Frisky is maybe a little odd, a little self-indulgent, but the bonus is that I can basically have it anytime I want, so Star Trek Week will go on next week, a week late, because like Jean Luc Picard, I am the Captain of this ship and I WILL MAKE IT SO.
In the meantime, “Star Trek Into Darkness” still opens TO-FUCKING-DAY, and while I already posted a spoiler-free review of the film, allow me to further encourage you to see it with these 10 sligggghtly spoiler-y hints about the film’s plot. And if that’s not enough for you, they are accompanied by GIFs of Benedict Cumberbatch, aka the World’s Sexiest Mole Rat, who plays the villain John Harrison in the film. Swoon. Keep reading »
Last night, I had the supreme good fortune of being able to see an early screening of “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the latest “Star Trek” reboot from J.J. Abrams. You. Guys. It was so so so soooooo goooooooood. I am dying to talk to someone about it, but no one else I know has seen it yet and I refuse to be that asshole who ruins the movie — especially by revealing who the villain is — for my fellow Trekkies. That violates the Prime Directive of, like, fandom. Anyway, I need to purge my emotions about the film though, so I put together this utterly spoiler-free (I swear!) review of the movie presented in GIFs from “Star Trek: The Original Series.” Keep reading »
Are you guys tired of me writing about “Star Trek Into Darkness” yet? I sure hope not, because I haven’t even officially begun The Frisky’s countdown till the movie lands in theaters May 18. Oh, the excitement I have planned… Until then, here is a just released clip from the movie. I get some “Wrath of Khan” vibes from the scene — “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few … or the one” being Spock’s next to last words in the film — but obviously J.J. Abrams and company have been teasing the Khan connection for awhile (likely a red herring). Mostly I am intrigued by that big fish. WTF?
