Star Trek ROCKS!
First off, I'm not an official Trekkie/Trekkor, but the new Star Trek movie is SO good that it just about brought me to tears, saluting the screen with the Live Long & Prosper sign and giving a standing ovation. Mark & I talked about it all weekend and can hardly wait until it comes out on DVD.
(hey hon, are the Klingon's coming over for dinner?)
Yes, I watched the original series. I wasn't glued to it or HAD to watch it, but I watched it all the same. Can't say I liked ALL the Star Trek series after the original one, except the series with Jean-Luc Picard. He was so very cool, plus I love saying his name... so romantic.
Really... I'm not a Trekkie (hides costumes).
The new Star Trek crew is amazing! Not only was the movie well written and thought out, but the actors were dead on with the original characters. From Bone's "Dammit Jim..." to Spock's eyebrow raise to Kirk's mannerisms, etc..
"Beam me up Scotty."
I also liked how they matched the younger crew to look like how the original would look like at a young age. Another excellent move. They obviously studied their characters. Oh and the special effects were awesome as well
(hon, have you seen my communicator!)
This movie more than surpassed our expectations. Mark & I knew it was going to be good, but we had NO idea it would be THAT good. We both agree that we recommend this movie to anyone who loves to be entertained by a well rounded movie. No, you don't have to be a Trekkie or even close to it.
"Space... the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before."
Live long & propser,
