Default STAR TREK was fantastic

I consider myself something of an amateur critic and normally don't leave theaters feeling excited about movies (or, at least, the event is rare). However, having just watched Star Trek, I can say it happened today.

I grew up watching both the original and next generation so I experienced a little nostalgia in watching and can recognize that I wasn't watching as critically as I might normally. But the acting was good, the special effects were fantastic, the story was well developed, and there were just enough nods to the original for it to be satisfying without being overdone. Casting was good as well.

So anyway. All that being said. I loved it and will see it again.

Nice. I'm hearing and reading nothing but good things.

Going to the Imax showing tomorrow with my dad and my son. Lock up the women. 3 generations of Bean men will be on the prowl.

I hope it's good. In the last couple of years, I've been disappointed with summer movies I had been waiting to see. Maybe I just need to lower my expectations going in so I can enjoy the movie.

I think you're just repeating what the people beside you were saying as they watched you eating the double buttered extra large popcorn and jumbo box of goobers.

I thought it was interesting to see how they handled time travel as opposed to how Lost is doing it this season (same creative team). Pretty different, obviously simpler in Trek. It's popcorn fun though...dont expect to be changed on any emotional level.

Went this afternoon... I grew up watching the origional and I was blown away by how well this film was done. They must have really studied the characters becuse the younger version characters in the movie were VERY VERY believable! This was the best movie I have seen in years! Loved it... I walked out a little torn... didn't know if I was more excited about the movie I just saw... or the fact that there were going to be more to come with this cast and story line! Great stuff!

It was very good! The cast is very strong, believable and most of all, likable. The story is good and it's very cool to see guys like Christopher Pike make an appearance. The battle scenes are better and they finally ditched the idea of a "down" in space, which is something that has always aggravated me about star Trek; The imaginary Z axis.

If you like sci fan action films then it's a good flick. You don't have to like star trek to enjoy it. There is enough there for both fan and non-fan's alike.

I was kind of curious, how was Karl Urban as McCoy?
