I review it : Star Trek

Sweet Zombie Jebus this movie is AWESOME!!!

And I'm not even a Trekker. Reboot / reimagining / remake ... call it what you will but this thing lives up to all the hype. JJ Abrams has created a film that turns what we know about the characters on its head while still hitting all the nostalgia sweet spots. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and the actors all seem to really be enjoying themselves in their roles. That sense of freewheeling fun (Batman, I'm looking at YOU) totally carries through to the audience.

Also, Tortiegirl would like everyone to know that Karl Urban is in the movie. She was unaware. There may have been squealing.

Oh, JJ. Always with the polar bears. Among other things ... you'll know what I'm talking about.

5 tribbles out of 5.

There was only one pair of Vulcan ears that we could see - but that's Georgetown. The Uptown is inexplicably not showing Star Trek.  If so, it would have looked like a regular convention up in there. And speaking of conventions ... this just never gets old.

There was squealing. Because Karl Urban is A-MAZ-ING. And it was just pure joy to see him even if his hair detracted from his face of the sun, he still pulled it off. This was a really well cast movie. Don't see that too often.
