Star Trek!

So, I finally made it to see Star Trek last night, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
The movie itself had a very big-time feel to it, much like the newer Transformers and Batman movies. While earlier incarnations had a campy feel to it, this one came out swinging.
The acting was great, with each actor really becoming their character, rather than basing their actions on the those who portrayed the character earlier.
This is especially true of Chris Pine, who was playing Captain James Tiberius Kirk. The role has been so defined by The William Shatner that it is nearly impossible to not imagine good old Bill in the role of Captain Kirk.
Zachary Quinto, best known from his stint on Heroes seemed born to play the part of Spock, and was not overshadowed by Leonard Nimoy, who appeared in the movie as Spock Prime.
All in all, the movie is a can't miss for those among us who are Trekkies, and those who have yet to embrace their inner Trekness.
So go check out Star Trek and learn about the voyages of the starship Enterprise... Boldly go where about 75 Million people have gone before. (Corny, I know.)
