Space, the final frontier…

Yes…I’m a geek but thankfully, my family supports me in this craziness. Obviously Liz and I wanted to see this movie and we were pleasantly surprised to hear that  Joaquin and Emma wanted to come along so we obliged them. They are of course, the next generation.

We went on Mother’s day to see the new Star Trek movie and I must say, it was good.

star trek ticket stubLoved the action.
Loved the special effects.
Loved the homage to the original series.
McCoy’s character was spot-on, “…that green blooded goblin.”
Scotty and Sulu characters were great too. A couple of great lines.

I won’t spoil it but let’s just say, “a famous green woman” makes an appearance.

The development of the characters was good and the story was somewhat entertaining.

…and two other major characters made appearances as well.

JJ Abrams did a good job but like most remakes – there are gaps and some “creative license” with the franchise. I understand the actors have signed up for at least two more movies and in my opinion, the 2nd of the Star Trek movies have always been the best (TOS Wrath of Khan, TNG First Contact) – so we’ll see.

And let’s just hope Mr. Abrams tones down the lens flares he so much likes on the film – they were distracting. I was glad to hear Michael Giacchino’s musical score though; he sure does work well with Abrams – Lost, Fringe etc.

Either way, this was a movie that was up on my list of summer hits to see and I’m glad we saw it.

Oh and  yes, I did create the image up at the header – just couldn’t help myself.
