movies-i-watch-too-much

From Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

I was a huge Star Trek fan growing up.  I would watch the original TV series on the little 9” black and white TV that my little brother and I shared.  I loved watching the movies too.

I hadn’t thought about it much recently, but on more than one occasion I accused my old buddy of being “Spock.” Of turning off his emotions and behaving coldly and “logically.”  Or when I was feeling particularly hurt or ugly I would accuse him of not having any feelings at all.  Of being emotionally bankrupt.

I was Kirk, of course - the emotionally impulsive one.  Led by his feelings, his gut.  Logic be damned. 

I didn’t believe that my buddy was really heartless.  At times he could be coldly logical.  But, giving him the benefit of the doubt, I think he felt he had to make “right” choices.  Feelings be damned.  Or maybe he hoped that if he made the right choices the feelings would follow.  

I can say the first thing that popped into my head when I heard about Nimoy’s death wasn’t the clip above, but going to see Star Trek Into Darkness with Zachary Quinto as Spock.  The scene near the end, where Kirk dies, and Quinto is crying, it got me. I’ll never forget it.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bMLs-ceP5o

For me, Nimoy’s most memorable line isn’t, “Live long and prosper.”  It is, “I have been, and always shall be, your friend.”

Indeed.

Imagine your favorite character showing you their favorite movie and then watching you nervously to see if you like it too

Does anyone else think it’s strange all this happened in a week?
