Yesterday we went and saw the new “Star Trek” movie and I must admit I liked it a lot. I am a big Star Trek fan but I never watched the original series with Kirk, Spock and so on. First of all I never liked Kirk and second, I could never get over the ancient “special effects”. I don’t know, I just didn’t like the series. But otherwise, I have watched all the other Star Trek series and movies, several times each actually.
All that considered, I liked this movie. It was a little bit weird to see Zachary Quinto (Sylar from “Heroes“) play Spock, I kinda expected him anytime to make a flicking move with his hand and open up someone’s skull. But I got over that after a short while. I also liked the whole alternate timeline twist. It’s not messing up with the old Star Trek universe while allowing for future movies to be released. I’ve read some rumors which said that three more Star Trek movies will be made, I hope they are true.
Anyway, a movie highly recommended for everybody, Star Trek fan or not.
