OK, I don't know why it took me until now to figure this out? I am a geek! I am not talking speak Klingon, went to Space Camp geek...but, I love me some J. J. Abrams geek.
Bottom line, Husband gave me the afternoon off (best Mother's Day present in my book) so, I saw the new Star Trek Movie. Stoopid Ebert gave it two stars, and called it a cheesy space opera:P Ummm.....dude could not be more wrong. We are talking ball out of the park here!
Yes, I grew up watching Star Trek (the campy William Shatner version). I can actually quote...
"Space, the final frontier, these are the voyages of the Star Ship Enterprise. It's five year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before."
Yeah...see what I mean...geek:P
Anyway, this movie ROCKS! I loved the new James T. Kirk. Loved the new Spock. Loved the new Bones. Loved the new Sulu. Loved the new Scotty...Loved. 'em. all.
Now then...if you are a LOST fan, this is a must see. Midway through the movie...I leaned over to my Brother and said "I feel like we just crossed over to LOST."...'cause we had.
I don't want to ruin any plots...but time travel, and time lines play a huge role in the new Star Trek. It is very easy to see that J. J. Abram's hand prints are all over both LOST and Star Trek. I now have my head wrapped around LOST more clearly after seeing Star Trek.
This movie was top notch. It was funny, campy, shiny, polished...The actors nailed their characters. The script delivered every line you wanted to hear..."Dammit Jim...I'm a Doctor!" "I'm giving it all she's got Captain!" "Live long and Prosper"...it's all there, and more!
So yeah...I'm a geek:P Who saw it? Am I alone here???
