*DISCLAIMER* if your first instinct is "2008 (or whenever) called and wants it's movie back" You confirmed our suspicions, and YES, you are a douchebag.*

I was WAY impressed with the (relatively) new star trek movie.

Despite missing most of the star trek phenomenon by being born in 1974, I nevertheless saw most of the movies as a child, and have a relative understanding of the characters.

The first 20 minutes of the "new" star trek movie is awesome. Incredibly well done.

The rest of the movie was good, if a little drawn out and scattered (which may be part of the tradition).

So if you haven't seen it, it is worth a look.

MINOR SPOILER* if they were losing me a little by the point where SEAN OF THE DEAD was introduced as "SCOTTY" that got me back.*

I cringe when idiots get married in Star Trek garb and wouldn't be caught dead near a convention, but if you've never seen this movie, check it out.

I had said on here, back in 2008 that had this version been my first intro to Star Trek, I would have been a bigger fan. I "liked" the original tv series (and hated just about every one of the spinoff series and most of the movies) but none of them captured me like Star Wars and other science fiction did.

To me this was how Star Trek always should have been done.

Are you talking about the 2009 movie with Zoe as Uhura?

Or is there another new one?

I thought it ranked among the worst movies I'd seen in years. Totally overdone action, every other scene had the crew in epic danger. Among the other terrible movies on the list were Avatar and Transformers 2.

Whoa, Whoa, Whoa there 3rd demon with the cheese. Geesh. i am just establishing a baseline here. For all I knew there could have been a new 2010 Star Trek. Hell, Tron has been re-done too.




And btw, 2009 wants there.....Oh Bother.

Lol, you did nothing wrong. It was an obvious question. I should have googled the year, but I am too lazy.

The Tron coming out soon is a sequel, not a "re-do".

Tron was another near miss for me. The original was cool....in 1980.

At that time, computers were new and exciting and gosh darn it!
Didn't it seem possible that people might just get sucked into them?!?

No longer believeable for me.

I will pass on that one.
