I’ve never seen any of the Star Trek TV shows. I never really wanted to either because it all seemed so confusing. How do I know which one to watch first? But ever since the 2009 movie came out last summer, I’ve been kind of interested in seeing it. I tend to like sci-fi/action/”boy” movies anyway, but throw in director J.J. Abrams (LOST!), Chris Pine, and Zachary Quinto (who was awesome in Heroes when I watched it) and I’m there. I got it through Netflix last week and watched it tonight. I kind of loved it.
There’s way more humor than I thought! Kirk is hilarious and Spock is really funny with his dry sense of humor. Everyone involved in the movie is fantastic. There are a ton of great actors. The plot is interesting. I’m thinking about buying this movie sometime. I’d definitely watch it again! I may have to watch the older movies now.
Of course there were times when it reminded me of other films — Star Wars and Top Gun mostly — but still, really good. I highly recommend it! 🙂
