Why I Love The Star Trek Movie
I Am A Star Trek Convert!
I was not a big fan of Star Trek. I didn’t watch the TV series much when it was on in re-runs and I didn’t watch the big blockbuster films that were made previously. I knew enough about the show to know and recognise the main characters; Captain James T Kirk, Mr Spock, Uhuru and Scotty.
I became a fan when Star Trek – The Next Generation hit the screens. I loved Captain Jean-Luc “Make it so” Picard, Commander Riker (gorgeous) and the grumpy features of Wharf.
This week I
decided to go along and see what all the fuss was about regarding Star Trek
2009. I went to watch the new
incarnation of Star Trek my local cinema on Orange
Wednesday. I have to admit to the
world. I absolutely loved it!
so much humour in the film. I laughed
out loud quite a few times. The actor
playing James Tiberius Kirk (Chirs Pine) was a heart throb and I thought that Zachary
Quinto playing Spock was fantastic. I am
sure that the fact we recognised him from the character he played in the TV
show “Heroes” – Sylar – helped immensely.
Zoe Saldana who played Uhuru was beautiful. Difficult to say if she was able to elevate above the title of “token girl in movie”.
Star Trek 2009 Rocks!
The storyline was a good choice although I always get confused when talking about stuff like the space time continuum (love that phrase), and meeting your future self. I got a bit lost as to what time zone we were supposed to be in during the Romulan attack but i didn't allow myself to get down with the logic and logistics of the story and I found that this didn’t really matter. There was enough interesting stuff going on to keep you well and truly occupied and it all made sense in the end.
a Brit favourite, was super as Scotty and his Scottish accent was, in my humble
opinion, brilliant.When I saw him interviewed on The Jonathan Ross Show, he would not show his accent skills. He didn't want to spoil it for people. He is married to sa scottish woman so I am sure she made sure he didn't embarrass her or her family. Job well done Mr Pegg.
The Future Of Star Trek
forward to the future franchises of this film as the success of number one will
surely guarantee Star Trek 2 and 3.
about William Shatner, the original Captain Kirk. I bet he is really pissed that he missed out
on this gig and didn’t get the chance for a cameo. Ha ha.
It has to be done. This has to end on Spock’s wonderful one liner:
“Live long and prosper”
