I’m not going to get into much detail, in deference to those who may not have seen Star Trek yet (what is WRONG with you?), but I will say that I officially have a new favorite movie – a statement I do not make lightly.
Plot, characterization (Karl Urban as Bones McCoy is an unheralded talent!) and special effects – it’s all there, and it all works beautifully. I left the theatre more excited than when I went in, which is something that hasn’t happened to me for a looong time. I’ll provide a more fulsome discussion of the film soon, but for now, I just want to tell you: SEE IT!
