Two thumbs up. It's a great movie fan or not.

I've heard there is a twist at the start and was kind of leery about it, but I've heard nothing but praise from everyone who's seen it. I really need to figure out how to see it this weekend.

+1, great film. The fx were stunning, the humor/banter was spot on, and the casting choices were ideal.

I took the kids to the first show last night. There is something special about seeing the first showing of a cult type film. The audience fully understands the all nuances, and really makes the whole show an event.

Majel Barret even made it into the credits, as the voice of the computer. It would hardly be Trek without her.

Two nights ago I told my 14 daughter that we should see the new ST movie this weekend. She said "Yeah! I don't know anything about Star Trek..."

Made me feel like I have failed as a father. So I downloaded the first couple of episodes of the Original Series.

Well, it wasn't on Dish PPV so I had to do Netflix. But then I didn't know that my (ex) brother-in-law left all of his ST tapes and DVDs with my sister and her kids, so I could have just drove the 3 blocks and picked them up.

I had no idea that Yeoman Janice Rand was so hot! I must have been pretty young when I watched these on TV. And their skirts were so low!

Yeah, I miss mini-skirts and not just on Star Trek.

Abrams did an absolutely amazing job. Anyone who grew up with the original series (me) will be blown away by the sheer number of callbacks. Blade Runner just got kicked out on its ass as the best SF movie of all time IMO.
