...And I Feel Fine
Interesting group of trailers before “Quantum of Solace,” by the way. It was nice seeing the “Star Trek” trailer on the big screen rather than this screen. It was nice seeing those original uniforms, and hearing those sound effects, and I liked the allusion, at the end of the trailer, to the show's original opening chords. They kind of sound like the notes of greeting in “Close Encounters,” don't they? Never thought about it before.
Then we got trailers for “The Day the Earth Stood Still,” “Watchmen” and “2012.” The first is about the end of the world, the second is about the end of the world, the third is about the end of the world.
I sense a theme.
