LaRue and I went to the new Star Trek movie over the weekend.
Without a doubt it's the best movie we've seen this year; maybe even the best movie in the past few years. We both want to see it again.
The actors portraying the all too familiar Star Trek characters were almost perfect. Kirk, Spock and Dr. McCoy were dead-on with Mr. Scott, Sulu, Chekov and Uhura being excellent. And it was really cool seeing Leonard Nimoy again as Ambassador Spock.
The story was good with great effects and music. Lots of action and a ton of cool Star Trek "moments". I got a kick out of seeing the green skinned girl since I'm familiar with the story of the green dancer in the original series and how there was a misunderstanding between Roddenberry and the people processing the film who thought her green skin was a mistake. And I thought it was really cool hearing Majel Barrett Roddenberry as the voice of the computer.
This will be a definite purchase when it becomes available.
