    Damn good, isn't it? I only wish my dad had lived to see it, he was a big fan. He missed it by a few months. JJ did a nice job resetting the franchise for a new generation while keeping enough of the original lore to appeal to the old die hard fans.

    That was an excellent movie. I watched and like the original TV series, but didn't get much into the movies and never watched all the next generations, but I thought that movie was awesome, especially on the big screen.

    I would have preferred a movie that had some type of plot, didn't make someone who was on academic suspension from the academy a Captain, tried to have some type of connection to the Trek universe, and didn't gratuitously through in R2D2. But it was fun to watch.

    I thought it had an excellent plot.

    Captain Kirk saves the world, with Spock.

    Works for me. Loved the back and forth across time continuum thing...though it got sort of hard for me to track, lol.

    I also LOVED the Spoke/Ulhura thing! I thought that was cuter than shit!

    But the special effects are what made it.

    And the humor, and the acting..which was actually quite good.

    I loved the snow monsters, and kirk running screaming from them, that was tremendous. Flash back to Galaxy Quest!

    It was just an outstanding escapist movie.

    And everybody was very easy on the eyes. There's that.

    I loved it! It's good old fashioned fun on the big screen.

    The weakest bits were the scenes with Leonard Nimoy; not much sizzle there.

    The new Scotty is adorable.

    Agreed. It has that cheap "Pam Dreamed Bobby Died" aspect about it for getting out of tough plot situations set up by the series and other movies.

    But other than that - it was a fun movie.
