Galaxy Quest, what a film!

In the end April didn't need much convincing seeing Galaxy Quest. As it turns out She is also a fan. I knew I married the right person.

We went to Trinity, Tunbridge Wells, a converted church that is now a trust run cafe / theatre that holds around a hundred and fifty people. How many people turned up? 12 at a push, but like us they were fans of the film. I must have seen it 6 or 7 times before in fact it was on TV in December so I watched it then but I have never seen it in a cinema. I must have laughed out loud twenty times during the screening. But luckily I wasn't the loudest, that was a guy a couple of rows back who must have topped the 100 laugh count.

The second film In Time with Justin Timberlake was surprising good too. I'm pretty sure it's made by the same guy that made Gattaca which was one of the first DVDs I ever bought back in 1998. The film did turn silly towards the middle and end but I enjoyed many of the interesting ideas that were shown during the film. Definitely worth a viewing for a sci-fi fans.
