Why I Liked Star Trek

Posted by Royalcow

I have never been a huge Star Trek fan. I always liked Star Wars better and the only Star Trek show I ever watched with any sort of regularity was Voyager and that was mainly for Jeri Ryan and it happened to be on right after the Muppet Show in college. That being said I was very excited to see the new Star Trek movie. For the uninformed among us, here is the trailer (if you are using a reader you might need to click through to see it).

J.J. Abrams has been involved in so many project that I am a fan of (LOST, Cloverfield, Alias, hell he even directed an episode of The Office) that this movie couldn't have been bad. The very solid 95% on Rotten Tomatoes was very encouraging. Let's just say that my expectations were met, maybe even exceeded.

This is just a good movie. It was funny (genius casting Simon Pegg as Scotty), great action, and a great story. Of course they had to throw in a few old-school Star Trek references, but that really only added to the enjoyment of the movie.

Really the only thing left to do is advise you to see this movie and post the Onion video about it (again, if you are using a reader you might need to click through to see it).

Oh and no crap after credits on this one. Enjoy!

Agreed. This movie was fantastic. Nothing too deep, just a really awesome action movie from start to finish. And all of the actors were fantastic. This movie is a must see.

I don't know about anyone else, but I was a little distracted by the pretty obvious use of a brewery as the bowels of the Enterprise.
