So. New Star Trek trailer.

I haven't been this excited about a movie since the first time I heard they were making Episode I waaay back in the day, and we all know how that turned out. And I still have my reservations. (Um, WHY YOU BUILD ENTERPRISE ON EARTH, JJ, THAT MAKES NO KIND OF SENSE, ALSO WHERE IS GARY MITCHELL?!)

But still. Oh my god. OH MY GOD, IS IT MAY YET CAN IT BE MAY NOW.

So I finally watched Neverwhere. (Thank you, YouTube!)

And OMG it was so much better than I thought it would be! Of course it helped my expectations were lowered by everyone telling me that it was totally crap and grainy and bad special effects and 90's background music, but wow. SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, in which Carabbas was frankly quite terrifyingly odd and looked like a Dairy Queen commercial, and Door looked like a cheap knockoff of Death of the Endless. And I have a whole new level of respect for Croup and Vandemar, somewhat akin to my whole new level of respect for Arthur Dent after watching the BBC Hitchhiker's Guide.

And two of the Neverwhere cast have played Beatles, which just adds more awesomeness to any scene with Richard and Islington. And I want a Marquis de Carabbas. May I have one, pretty please?

I'm somewhat disturbed to see that there may be a new movie in the makings, though. All I ask is that Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the Marquis, and I'm happy. Oooh, and Gina Torres could play Hunter!
