Movie Review: Star Trek

I am not a Trekkie.  But I am probably one of the few people in the world that wishes I was.  That is because I just saw the new Star Trek movie and really loved it!  It stirred in me a desire to go and watch all the old shows and maybe, just maybe, learn a little Klingon.  Yes, I said it, and I’m not ashamed.  Those of you who know me already know of my love for fantasy fiction, including Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.  And those of you who really, really know me, know my love of games like World of Warcraft.  This show, while perhaps on the border between all-out fantasy and science fiction, seems like it would be just my cup of tea.

I don’t feel I am in a position to critique the movie, because I am not a Trekkie and therefore don’t know if it followed all the rules set forth in the old show.  But I do think I can recommend the movie to others out there who are not Trekkies and are as unfamiliar with the show as I am.  It is an action-filled movie, good casting (ie. I thought the characters all had great chemistry), and highly entertaining.  Go with a date (there are some cuties in it), go with your family (it was family friendly), and enjoy!

I am now off to abandon my study of Elfish and learn some Klingon.

  1. The movie was awesome. I loved every minute of it. I can’t wait for more. See Wrath of Khan! There were a lot of inside jokes in this one that you’ll get a hang of later. But, yeah, the movie was really fun and worthy. Glad you liked it!

  2. I concur with Joe, I thought the movie was great. Best Star Trek I’ve seen, regardless of the “rules.”

  3. What rules?

  4. I haven’t seen it – but have been thinking about it – not really a trekkie, but watched some growing up (here and there) – BUT I do LOVE Harry Potter! Wish you were home this summer so we could watch the new movie together 🙂

  5. Well you made me want to go and see it. I used to long long ago in a galaxy far away…like the show. I cna’t say I was a true Treckie but I did like it and enjoyed even the earliest ones. Sounds like a fun thing to do…I’ll give it a try. Thanks Ames.
