For my first review in over 2 months, I have to start with Star Trek. It was perfectly executed as an action film with good drama, storyline, characterization, and some funny stuff (weeee).
Here's the thing that hit me the hardest; I grew up having to watch Star Trek on TV because my older brother loved it (obsessively); I did not. I thought it was cheesy, yet the Star Trek characters were somehow ingrained on any individuals memory if they watched TV and/or movies.
What I found in this movie was a brilliant relationship between all the main characters with fantastic honor to the original characters of the franchise. McCoy, the doctor, was brilliant, as was Checkhov (spelling?), and the dude from 'Shawn of the Dead.'
The story was decent enough to introduce the new cast and break ground, and again, the relationships between the characters was established in a fun, dramatic way.
All I can say is great job, well done, and make another one!! YeeeHawwww!!
