Movie Review: the Cine-Sib on "Star Trek"
Here's some background. The Cinema-Mad Sibling went to a late-night premiere last night, and this morning he called me with groggy enthusiasm. He sounded completely exhausted but also completely delighted. He proceeded to proclaim that he wore a red shirt to the cinema last night in honor of all the nameless red shirt ensigns (otherwise known as "cannon fodder on Kirk-Spock-McCoy away missions"). Funny guy, that Cine-Sib.

"That's two words."
"Not if you HYPHENATE it. Kick-butt. One word."
