Star Trek

Two words:


Wow. Holy cow. Wow.

Whew. Ok. I caught my breath. So, the Star Trek movie is incredible. Like I suspected, it is absolutely nothing like any other Star Trek movie or series. It's completely different, but still amazing. And unlike I suspected, I only have two complaints with it--one major and one minor. The minor complaint involves a particular love story not present in any of the TOS episodes or movies, and the major complaint should be glaringly obvious to every Trekkie or even anyone who's watched any of the first 6 movies. It's so major, that I'm afraid I cannot accept this movie as canonical. Besides that, though, the movie was amazing and provided hilarious backstories on all the characters. The action sequences were very well done, and the opening scene was great. Overall a very entertaining and enjoyable movie...perhaps the funnest movie I have seen in years. I most definitely recommend it to everyone; even hardcore Trekkies will find it wonderful. I wish there was an HTML tag to express my emotions at this point...oh well, I guess you'll just have to see it to believe it.

Rating: 4.9/5

Somehow I had a "stardate" calendar get added to my Google Calendar, and I was wondering if it was you that did it or someone else playing a funny joke on my account.
