    I am doing the bouncy giddy dance about going to see it tonight. I'll be so bummed if it's a let down!

    Re: Star Trek - May 8 2009

    I sat there last night and watched TVGuide channel's 'premiere show'. It just looks amazing!!!

    but, I'm not the type to head out on opening weekends - don't do well with crowds. But I will definltely be seeing it in the first few weeks (if I can wait that long)

    I did hear an interview that explains how they will weave Leonard Nimoy into it.

    They will use time travel -- which is consistent with Star Trek canon. It was used in Star Trek IV and in several episodes of the original series. It's a theme not unknown to J.J. Abrams.

    Re: Star Trek - May 8 2009

    I just got back a little while ago, and I thought it was a GREAT movie!

    What I liked most about the movie was the pacing, and balance of humor, drama, and action. The acting was really good, and believable, the music was excellent(composed by one of my favorite recent movie composers - Michael Giacchino), and the story was intriguing.

    I think this set the bar way too high for the other summer action blockbusters coming out. I think they could learn a lesson from the balance of story and action, rather than just focusing on the explosions(I'm looking at you Transformers 2, Terminator4, G.I. Joe, etc)

    I agree. It was a very good balance. There was a lot of laughing in my cinema, but I never found myself groaning at the obviousness of the jokes. I was laughing right along at the light hearted nods. They kept just enough of the campy essence of the original characters without making the movie a spoof or impersonation. While I could nit pick a couple of the scientific flaws, or

    the fact that the Romulans didn't look very romulan-y to me
    I will let those things slide because I just enjoyed the overall ride so much.

    I looked it up (being the nerd I am) and the OFFICIAL Trek Wiki says that there were some Romulans born without the distinguishing ridges that we remember from ST:TNG, the other movies, etc. So its not completely far fetched that Nero and his band of merry men were without ridges.


    I have to say, Memory Alpha is one of the best if not THE best collection of Star Trek info I have ever seen. I had to laugh, they may be tooting their horn a little, but they claim the screenwriters and other members of the crew unfamiliar to ST canon used Memory Alpha to educate themselves, lol. I would believe it since even with my knowledge, there is a ton of ST stuff I still don't know, lol!!

    Haven't seen the movie yet, but hope to do so next week. It got terrific reviews in the Washington Post newspaper. I have been a Trek fan for many years, and have enjoyed all the TV series. Hope you all "Live Long and Prosper!"

    It certainly was the best Mother's day present I have gotten yet. Husband was asking me if we could see it again tonight.
    I wish we could! A repeat show isn't in the budget unfortunately
