Movie Review – “Star Trek”


So much has been written about the new “Star Trek” movie that it’s almost pointless for me to add my own two cents. Basically, I thought it was great. Tons of fun. One of the best summer movies I’ve seen in a long time. It’s hard for me to imagine anyone walking out of this movie that did not have a good time. So I’d highly recommend it to anyone.

I guess what I’m impressed by most is how J.J. Abrams turned me around on the idea of a new movie. I can remember rolling my eyes the first time I read that there was yet another reboot of the franchise being put together. However, Abram’s track record (Lost, Alias, MI:3) caused me to at least give it a shot. And the first full trailer that I saw turned my skepticism into excitement. And when I finally saw the movie last Friday, it didn’t disappoint.

If you’ve seen it, then you definitely want to check out some of these links. If you haven’t, don’t. And go see it soon.
