It’s the end of the long weekend unfortunately, but the good news is we have a new comic for you! That essentially makes up for going to be early tonight, waking up to an annoying alarm in order to drag yourself to a job you hate, right? I thought so.
Two weeks into summer blockbuster season and already we’re blessed with two very good movies. Iron Man 3 was another solid entry in the Marvel movie universe and J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness hits all the right marks. Well, most of the right marks, “all” is a bit generous.
Star Trek Into Darkness, while a very good and very fun movie, still suffers from the same problems as it’s predecessor: it does not carry the Star Trek “soul”. For those who aren’t diehard Star Trek fans this won’t be a problem and perhaps more of a plus. But for those of us who cling tightly to Gene Roddenberry’s utopian spirit there will always be something off about the Star Trek remakes.
Having said that, the villain is handled exceptionally well (which is often a problem in most Star Trek films) and the film actually takes a few moments to breath rather than assaulting us with endless, high tension action scenes.
Definitely go see it, whether you’re a Trekkie or not, I guarantee you’ll have a good time.
Just a quick heads up, it’s a long weekend so next week’s Inglorious Hipsters comic will be out Tuesday instead of Monday. With that, here’s your Friday installment of Dead-Beef. Have a great long weekend everyone!
We sit down with local social media overlord Adam Rozenhart to get the 411 on how the Yeggies went down. Also this month Mark reveals his methods for trolling his own fans, Gregg tries to squeeze Adam for Yeggies dirt and we learn that our Yeggie medal is most likely covered in mommy blogger crotch sweat. Oh, and we talk about Star Trek…again.
I know, fresh off our big Yeggies win you’re expecting a new comic today, but sadly we likely won’t have this weeks comic done until Wednesday/Thursday on account of me and my ongoing fight with a nasty virus. Sorry for the delay folks, see you soon.
