There were Stars and they trekked...

So on Friday May 8th, Scott and I saw Star Trek.

It's an exciting movie. It ended up not being a simple retelling of the classic tale for a new generation (thank god, thats what next generation is for) but rather a storyline that you might find in an actual Star Trek episode; filled to the brim with time travel, laser beams, screaming aliens and some fighting. Writing-wise, the movie was a comfortable balance of serious, peace-loving anti-racism undertones and good old fashioned humor. Chris Pine did a great job at being a sarcastic asshole and Zachary Quinto was pretty much spot on as Spock. I can't think of a better actor to get that emotionless but still kind of creepy dead pan demeanor.

All in all, I would say it was two hours well spent. I came out of the film feeling excited about the quality of the picture and was really happy to tell other people. So go see it
