Saw the new Star Trek movie over the weekend. Being a huge fan of the Star Trek franchise in general, I had very high hopes for this movie, because it has been quite some time since a Star Trek show/movie has been, well, fun. Sure, Enterprise had its moments, but by and large wasn’t that great.
This movie was AWESOME. Words actually fail me at some points, other than saying that is exactly what Star Trek needed. A movie that is faithful to longtime fans such as myself, while also being fun, humorous, and action oriented enough to draw in a generation of sci-fi fans that grew up on Firefly and Battlestar Galactica.
You know what one of the best things about the new Star Trek movie was? After 40+ years of TV and movies, they finally hold their phasers like GUNS. Two handed grips, aiming over the top…almost like they were playing characters who in some kind of space military…a “Starfleet”, if you will. If you’re a fan of Star Trek, go see it. If you’re a fan of sci-fi as a genre, go see it. Or if you just like your punching and explosion shows, go see it.
