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.

That’s right, you know that A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise? It’s getting a remake movie.

Freddy Krueger, the burn victim villain with the claws and the means to kill people in their sleep. 6 sequels, 1 non-offical movie and Freddy vs. Jason film in the early 2000’s. A cultural icon. A horrifying nightmare to some, entertainment to many, and a sexy bloody beast to some.

So far the plans going on of the remake, in filming, have been mixed. Sure, the latest horror-icon remake Friday the 13th wasn’t that bad! But remaking such a more humor and well-known faced character? Freddy is known for personality and his face played by Robert Englund: Now he’s getting new actor, a slightly different plot-line, and expected to loose any of his humor.

What I miss is that it seems this new Freddy won’t have a smile on his face. I prefer he does look sadistic but, if he’s kept stone-cold-evil I’ll have to cry. It would be a shame.

In fact…hey, it’s looking good! EVIL. FIREY. WOAH MAN.

Jackie Earle Haley to play the new Freddy.

IMDB article on the Nightmare remake.

Have no clue what I’m talking about? Refer to this, the original movie that has spawned much sequels and franchise. I highly recommened this fun 80’s slasher flick!
