Saw the new Star Trek last night (BSR has the hook up. HOLLA IF YA HEAR ME!!!!). I don't know if I am allowed to talk about it all that much, but let me say this...
Here is Big Shirtless Ron's Spoiler-Free Review:
I am not known as being a huge fan of sci-fi. I watched some re-runs of the original series, enjoyed TNG when I caught it on, and never really tuned in to DS9 or Voyager. I can honestly say that I never saw one minute of "Enterprise". But this movie was incredible. Start to finish, it took what had become a tired storyline with 45 years of continuity to deal with and dance around and completely re-imagined it, making it possible for the storyline to go ANYWHERE it wants to from here.
I can only hope that they have J.J. Abrams and the entire cast signed for AT LEAST 2 sequels. And make sure you keep those writers around.
I do have stories to tell about the audience itself, but since I am out of here in 15 minutes those will have to wait for next time.
