poster_star_trek_xiThis is one of the most amazing films I’ve seen in a long, long, while. For those who doubted J.J. Abrams, I feel bad about you and your lack of faith. This is just the (re)boot that Star Trek needs. The film is fast paced full of action and ends perfectly. My only complaint is the way that certain cliche quotable lines were inserted into the film. I understand why they were used, they were necessary as a type of homage to the original and the influence of all previous Star Trek franchise related media, still they felt forced and simply for the sake of making fans realize that this new film acknowledges the past. But considering all that could be wrong with this film, I’m very pleased with the result. The casting was perfect and dead on. Once the first action scene starts, it does not let up. The pacing was perfect and well executed, worth your time and your money. (Haha). Enjoy. Cheers.

  1. Saw it last night and loved it. The plot has a few holes, but they mostly have to do with the housekeeping nature of the time travel story. The cast was all great, though. I loved most everything about the film, from the design work on the spaceships, costumes, and sound to the constant action scenes, both in terms of stunts and visual spectacle. Awesome.

    • One thing that definitely impressed me was how lush and vivid the colours of this film were. Amazing, lots of eye candy. Cheers.

  2. Yeah, in addition to the design of everything (the bridge! the enemy ship! the Vulcan city!) looking great, Abrams did some interesting things with his camera. I especially enjoyed the hypersaturation of colors, yes, but also the frequent lens flares, which reminded us visually that Star Trek is supposed to be bright and optimistic.
