The new movie has been out for just over a week.
Me? I’m an old-school Trek fan. From waaay back.
If you’re a fan… if you’re not but like a good science fiction movie… go see the new Star Trek. This isn’t the same, old, tired attitude and script. This new imagining of Star Trek is an absolute roller coaster ride from JJ Abrams.
Absolutely amazing. Seeing it once was great, but there was so much going on, that I’ll definitely have to own this one when it comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray/Whatever.
Nevermind Star Trek. This is one of the most fun rides I’ve had at the movies in a very long time. I think a sequel is a no-brainer, but it’ll have a hard time living up to this first outting from Abrams.
Yes, I freely admit it: I’m a fan of Star Trek.
Unfortunately, over the years, it’s lost it’s luster for me. Not so much the original series and cast, but the treatment it received. I’ve always thought it could be more than it was. Instead, it seemed to be getting the “red-headed step-child” treatment: Paramount wanted money from it, but wasn’t really interested in investing money in it.
Coming in May 2009, I may get my wish.
Meet the crew of the USS Enterprise. Again.
And read about the coming film. I don’t believe there are any plot spoilers, but read at your own risk.
