Mystery Box ?

Jeffrey Jacob Abrams aka JJ Abrams, the creator of Lost is the guest editor for this month’s Wired magazine and he has a cover story, The magic of mystery which is neat. I see the cover story as a continuation of the TED talk that he presented two years ago.

Lost is probably one of the best sitcoms every made by the humans(!). I totally dig it. Yes, its indeed better than Seinfeld, Friends or MASH. Lost is made up of mysterical connections between the people of plane and show up on the right time. His quest for the mystery continues that even in his debut movie, Mission Impossible 3, he didn’t really reveal the contents of Rabbit Foot(wasn’t that the whole point of the movie). This serving of MI is probably the best of all the 3 versions.

The good thing is that Hollywood is taking the mysteries of Abrams seriously and he is remaking Star Trek movie. Don’t think we will have a surprise of Leonard_Nimoy playing Spock.

P.S: Star Trek releases on 05/07 and if you are planning, wait for an IMAX release. It’s already getting rave reviews from advance screenings.
