Cher once said, "I think the longer I look good, the better gay men feel," and based on how good she looks today -- her 67th birthday! -- here at HuffPost Gay Voices we'd say we're feeling pretty good!
In honor of Cher's big day, we put together this gay little tribute:
You woke up this morning thinking it was just another normal Monday.
Boy, were you wrong!
Today is the Birthday of the one... the only...
That's right, Zachary Quinto! It's the birthday of...
67 years young! Can you believe it?
No no! We meant you look so good!
You're just so gorgeous and talented and you've inspired so many gay men over the years. Aside from your epic music career ("Take Me Home!" "Turn Back Time!" "Believe!") there's also your filmography! There's "Mask," "Mermaids," "Moonstruck," and don't forget:
Seriously though, Cher. You are a goddess. We love »

Generally speaking, bad guys are bad guys because they want to do bad things and get away with them, so if you see one get caught in the middle of a movie it usually means they've got an ace up their sleeve. Lately we've been seeing this trend of the bad guy getting caught on purpose (capture, interrogation, threat, destruction, escape) in big tentpole blockbusters, and either every copy of Final Draft has a glitch that automatically pastes that into a script … or folks are getting lazy.
Seeing as how it's used once again in "Star Trek Into Darkness," let's cite five recent examples of this cliché in the hopes that we can declare a moratorium on it ... at least until it counts as nostalgia.

Warning: Spoilers about "Star Trek Into Darkness" lie ahead.
Looks like the phasers were set to stun after all: despite the added benefit of 3-D surcharges, "Star Trek Into Darkness" opened with $84 million over its first four days of release, just $9 million more than its 2009 predecessor managed in just three days. (Over three days, "Star Trek Into Darkness" made $5 million less than "Star Trek.") That's a far cry from the $100 million opening Paramount had targeted for "Into Darkness" following its $13.5 million opening day on Thursday. While it's doubtful there are too many tears being shed on the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise -- "Star Trek Into Darkness" added $80 million overseas, already putting it on track to top the $127 million "Star Trek" earned internationally in 2009 -- the "Into Darkness" opening was a domestic disappointment. Why did J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated film trip out of the starting gate? Ahead, »

Warning: Crazy Spoilers Herein.
It's become a bit of a tradition in Hollywood for the creators of pop culture-friendly franchises to hide a few Easter eggs in the film for hardcore fans to find and get giggly over. "Iron Man 3" did it just this month while Marvel's other giant blockbuster, "The Avengers," perfected the art last year.
But while those movies were at least sometimes subtle about their references and in-jokes, "Star Trek Into Darkness" has taken a somewhat different approach: smacking you right in the face with them at every single opportunity.
Of course, that's bound to happen when your whole film is taken part and parcel from the most beloved "Star Trek" installment of all time, "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan." But since not everyone going to see "Star Trek Into Darkness" has a Ph.D. in Trekkery ("Wrath of Khan" did come out over 30 years ago, »

Jonathan Rhys Meyers to star in Star Wars: Episode VII? Jonathan Rhys Meyers is "in talks" to star in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, according to Latino Review. Best known for his role as King Henry VIII in the Showtime series The Tudors, which also features upcoming Man of Steel Henry Cavill, Rhys Meyers has already been featured in one Abrams movie: Mission: Impossible III (2003), in which he supported Tom Cruise. (Photo: Jonathan Rhys Meyers in The Tudors.) At this stage, it’s unclear which role Jonathan Rhys Meyers would play in Star Wars: Episode VII, now a Walt Disney Studios production. The next installment in the highly popular franchise is reportedly to continue the Star Wars saga where Return of the Jedi left off. Having said that, in case Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams, and Anthony Daniels (perhaps a little rustier?) are indeed returning to the Star Wars fold, »

After four years of waiting and anticipation, geek honcho J.J. Abrams has finally given us the sequel to his 2009 box office and critical hit. And it is … serviceable. Abrams’ new movie is as sleek and shiny as his first Star Trek picture but lacking much of its charm. The novelty of seeing these characters coming together is gone, the villain is lackluster in bizarre ways, and the high-flying pacing is absent, making many of the film’s logic gaps even more head-scratching. And there are indeed some real head-scratchers. Choosing emotion and spectacle over logic can work, and it does in the last Trek outing and the first half of Star Trek Into Darkness, but this time around Abrams and his screenwriting team can’t gloss over all the leaps in logic and other narrative problems. What starts off as another thrilling Abrams movie ends up turning into a mess by the end. Here »

New Star Trek 2,Into Darkness movie delivered great action,drama,twists & more. Paramount Pictures released their new sci-fi/action flick, "Star Trek 2: Into Darkness" into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and thought it was absolutely magnificent as it delivered big on the action,and the plotline was golden with tons of major twists towards the end. The drama was really intense too as Spock and Kirk really connected for some teary-eyed moments. I mean, I didn't cry,but I certainly would never rag on anyone who did. The movie stars: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, and Peter Weller. In the new flick, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) loses command of the Enterprise after he violates the Prime Directive in an effort to save his first Officer,Spock,from getting destroyed by »
There is a moment in Star Trek: The Video Game when a firefight with the Gorn leads to a door, and behind that door stands one of the game's Vulcan Npc characters calmly waiting for your arrival as if it was an airport terminal on a weekday afternoon. Never mind the fact that every area around this room is crawling with cannon toting Gorn.
This lack of logic is a microcosm for the bafflingly poorly executed game as a whole, ironic since one of its two playable character's belief systems is structured around the examination and acceptance of logic. If Spock sat down to play Star Trek: The Video Game, he'd quickly flip open his communicator and make the request, "Beam me out of here, Scotty."
Los Angees, May 18: Actress Zoe Saldana says the number of her male friends exceeds that of her female pals.
No wonder the 34-year-old loved being a part of the almost completely male cast of "Star Trek Into Darkness".
"It's a very accurate reflection of how I am in my own life. I have more male than female friends," contactmusic.com quoted Saldana as saying.

Star Trek Into Darkness box office: Solid or disappointing domestic debut? (Photo: Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock in Star Trek Into Darkness) J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, starring Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock, has to date grossed $13.4 million in North America, including from 336 late-night Wednesday IMAX shows and all-day showtimes at 3,668 locations on Thursday. As explained by Ray Subers at Box Office Mojo, first-day figures may have been below par because Paramount Pictures changed Star Trek Into Darkness‘ release date last week — the Star Trek sequel was to have opened on Friday. (Addendum: Barring an unexpected Saturday and Sunday surge, “disappointing” is the word for Star Trek Into Darkness’ domestic box-office debut.) For comparison’s sake: With $11.53m on Thursday proper, Star Trek Into Darkness had the 11th biggest Thursday opening ever (not adjusted for inflation). Its Thursday debut, »

Chicago – The anticipation of experiencing the rebooted crew of the starship Enterprise now may overwhelm any creative team’s ability to deliver to that anticipation. “Star Trek Into Darkness” piles on the space war excess, while lessening the savory humanity and memorable characters.
After successfully relaunching and rebooting the characters and universe of Star Trek in 2009, the team of screenwriters Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, Damon Lindelof and director J.J. Abrams have serious “Iron Man 2” syndrome in the follow-up – the tendency to emphasize the larger-than-life gadgets and effects over the smaller-than-life interactions of the humans operating the machines. What makes it a bit frustrating is that they nailed the first one so well, that evolving to the second adventure was an anticipatory slam dunk. There are many fine moments involving the Enterprise crew, but those tasty bits are covered with the fake butter of a franchise summer movie. It »

I was never the Star Trek fan in my family. No, that distinction goes to my Mom. The TV show, the original 6 movies, marathon after marathon on any random cable channel, she was all about it. And despite her best efforts, I just couldn’t get into it. But let it be known I have seen a good portion of the TV show along with all of the movies. Then in 2009, J. J. Abrams comes along with his reboot of a franchise that at that point, had become more of a mocked gesture than a sincere one. And despite my initial reluctance, I went and saw the J.J. Abrams version of Star Trek…and enjoyed the hell out of it. Sure it was more action driven, many would say Star Wars-esque, but »

"The Weekend Rent offers quick-hit suggestions of what to watch at home to get psyched for new releases in theaters, on Friday." There is only one new wide release in theaters this week, Star Trek Into Darkness, because the other studios want to steer clear of the hotly anticipated Paramount sequel that is looking at an opening weekend of around $100 million. We've posted countdowns for it and endless geek speculation for, oh, over a year now on this site, but that's because director J.J. Abrams is so protective of plot details and, well, we're talking about Star Trek. In the second Star Trek adventure directed by Abrams, Captain Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise chase former Starfleet agent John Harrison...

This summer director J.J. Abrams takes Star Trek Into Darkness as the young officers of The U.S.S. Enterprise set course for their most epic journey yet. Abrams reunites with the team that created the fun, the humor, and the spirit of 2009’s acclaimed hit reboot of the beloved franchise.
On this second voyage, they’ve amped the action, raised the emotional stakes and launched the Enterprise into a high-wire, life-or-death game of chess with an unstoppable force of destruction.
With everything the men and women of The Enterprise believe on the line, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn and sacrifices must be made for the only family Captain Kirk has left: the crew he commands.
