Star Trek Review

Movie ReviewStar Trek: 8 out of 10.

If I had written this review a year ago, it would actually be relevant. As it stands, the vast majority of people who will ever see Star Trek have already done so. As a result, I'm strictly writing this for the non-Trekkie hold-outs.

Last May, I wrote that I felt I was missing out as a non-Trekker. As a youngster, I saw Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan at the Runnymede Theatre and it damaged me, turning me off everything Star Trek for almost 30 years. Yes, the slug in the ear did it to me.

Last night, I decided to give J.J. Abrams' Star Trek a whirl. It was fantastic. Honestly, even if you don't like Star Trek or are completely unfamiliar with Star Trek, you'll enjoy this movie. Speaking as a non-Trekkie, it was great. By far the best Star Trek anything I have ever seen.

And yes, those mind control slugs showed up again, but when I caught wind of what was about to happen, I covered my son's eyes. Lightning wasn't about to strike twice.

Dude, you're killing me.

You loved Four Christmases, but hated Star Trek.

God gave you cancer as a punishment.

In an effort to sell the movie to my friends, I tell them that it's Star Trek meets Die Hard. Best way to describe it, I think.

I'm a total Star Wars geek and I have to admit I totally love this Star Trek movie. This summer I couldn't get enough of it. I saw it about 5 times. Love the new cast. I think the difference is JJ Abrams. I love his stuff.
