UPDATE: Hey everyone! Head on over to the live chat room as we'll be going live soon!
Hey guys! We took a week off of The Screening Room last week due to the Big Big Live Show: Live, but we're back this week and we expect to have a blast! And some lens flares. That's right, folks: this week's movie is none other than last year's flarestravaganza, Star Trek. I'm not going to lie: I like this movie a bunch, and consider it among my favorites of the last year. But please, don't bereave me: just check our official review!
If you're new to the Screening Room, here's the deal: you'll need to get yourself a copy of Star Trek (which shouldn't be too hard, considering it's on Netflix Streaming now) and queue it up around 3:50 PM PST today. We'll start watching the film around 4 PM and will be broadcasting our little commentary on our very own chat channel, screened.com/live. To be clear, we're not broadcasting the film itself, just a camera feed of us watching and discussing it; you'll need to provide your own copy of Star Trek if you want to watch along. I'm sure we'll be talking about all kinds of Star Trek-y stuff, so it should be fun!
Of course, that's optional - if you like, you can simply sit around in the chatroom and talk mess about the movie. We'll also be giving a few prizes during the movie , so stay tuned for a bit of trivia during the film itself! There'll also be an archived version of the stream on Justin.tv later on, so don't fret if you can't watch along live.
Anyway, we're putting this post up a bit earlier than usual to allow for those of you out of country or Netflix-less folks to procure your own copy of Star Trek before Wednesday. Grab it, and feel free to pop into the thread below to tell us your thoughts on the film. And be sure to check out Willy105's excellent work on the Star Trek page itself!
