Star Trek Was Good
Just got back from seeing it. No time needed to mull this one over. It was great. They did a very fine job with the characters, the plot, the setting (which was like an Apple Store meets 1966). There were so many shout outs to the original show and the original crew, plus many nice references to the other TV series that I’m sure I missed some. IOW, I will be seeing it again while it’s in theaters.
The only thing that wasn’t perfect was the music. They used some of the Star Trek themes we’ve come to love, but overall it was quite a break from Jerry Goldsmith’s iconic work. The new Enterprise theme wasn’t all that satisfying and it certainly doesn’t have the room for growth or breadth of emotion of Goldsmith’s.
I won’t give anything away except to say that, yes, there is some green babe action. Go see it.
Also, in reply to my little joke in this morning’s Star Trek thread my bro sends this:
