Star Trek: a Review of the Re-boot.

Star Trek. My GOD!


As some might know, or others don’t, I am a Trekkie. I was raised upon the VHS collectors set of all the Original Series episodes. I had also experienced VHS episodes of The Next Generation when my half-brother, more into that series, was around the house. And a smattering of Deep Space Nine and Voyager. Not to mention most of the first season of Enterprise. Ick.

And all the Star Trek movies.

Being in a Trekkie family like that while also appreciating Star Wars at an equal level, no wonder I found the re-boot…and it’s also a continuation…of Star Trek extremly wonderful. The plot was Trekkish, the Red Matter was Trekkish, the characters well casted and recreated *except for Uhura, didn’t like her*, the references to past movies and such was wonderful! Amazing movie!

My only complaints would be the lack of the Star Trek theme throughout the movie’s score except for the end.

The fact Vulcan blew up made me sad.

No other complaints, really. 🙂

They catered to the original series with it’s style of clothing and references with only a few allusions to TNG and beyond. For those loyal to OS, it will be amazing. To those who hate OS, well, you’ll still enjoy it but this is about the original that started it all, not your TNG stuff or prequels like Enterprise.

I also found the Lensflare effect with the camera work very nice, actually.  Another complaint is the modern camera work of the fight scenes.

Star Trek, is now cool again.
