Impressions – Star Trek (no spoilers)

by on May.08, 2009, under General

It’s been a while since a movie has touched me as much as the new Star Trek has. Thinking back, Return of the King has been the only one in recent history that really has, and probably not even as much as the new Star Trek. It’s probably due to a myriad of reasons. When I was a young child, my father would always watch The Original Series on television while we ate dinner. I enjoyed it but didn’t really have any say in the matter. Tribbles and some huge monster that Kirk fought in an arena-type area were my favorites. I watched the movies as they came out, and really enjoyed The Next Generation. I guess you’d say that I’m somewhat of a fan of Star Trek. We’ve been recently watching TOS on blu ray which brings back some great memories (and looks spectacular as well). My favorite Star Trek movie was First Contact…until last night. When I read that J.J. Abrams was directing the new Star Trek movie, I had the exact opposite feeling as when I heard that Michael Bay was directing Transformers. I was really excited. Being an enormous Lost fan, I couldn’t think of anyone that I’d rather have directing this film. So last night we arrived at the AMC Premium Theater around 6:00 and had dinner. We took our seats at 6:55 and watched a few great previews (G.I. JOE, Transformers 2) and then up pops the Bad Robot graphic. I was expecting to hear the classic Star Trek theme, but instead they’ve changed it to a completely new theme…which actually works. Also the Beastie Boys. Anyways, I’m not here to spoil the movie for anyone. I just wanted to say that this movie gave me chills throughout, is incredibly made, seems to have many ties to what’s going on in Lost right now, and the actor who plays Bones does a spot-on job. I highly recommend seeing this movie in a theater. Scotty’s alien friend FTW.
