Star Trek

My friend Paul and I just caught the 10:00 pm show of J.J Abrams' franchise reboot.  Here's my short review:

This film will blow your Vulcan mind!

Here's a little more:

  • Every time this film made a reference to the series or other Trek films, the audience applauded. The film and the audience were totally in sync with each other.
  • The special effects didn't feel at all like special effects.
  • Time issues?  Of course -- and I enjoyed every moment!
  • I loved every character, but I do have favorites - Simon Pegg as Scotty, Karl Urban as McCoy and Zachary Quinto as Spock. (His first utterance of "Live long and prosper" brought a whole new depth to the phrase.)
  • Pay attention for cameos (or is it just small roles?) for Winona Ryder and Jennifer Morrison

There will be more of this continuing mission . . .
