So, I decided to unleash my inner-nerd tonight and went to go see the new "Star Trek" movie.
FAN - frigging - TASTIC.
I'll wait to start doing the spoiler thing until a later post, but it's a really well done flick that grips you right from the start (with one of the best opening sequences I've seen in a popcorn-flick in a while) and doesn't let go. JJ Abrams somehow manages to makes the universe his own (with some "big ones that clank" type decisions that I didn't see coming), while at the same time keeping it familiar for people like me who are fans of the original material.
I highly recommend the movie not only 'Trek fans, but anyone who enjoys big summer adventure/action flicks. I think a lot of people will walk away from this movie surprised at how much they enjoyed a Star Trek movie.
I'll definitely be seeing this one more than once.
