I’m a geek, that means I like Star Trek. That also means that I watched the latest Star Trek movie as soon as it was possible. I didn’t have many expectations. Nemesis was a bit of a disapointment, and with everything new and changed I just went to see it. I was pleasently surprised. I found it to be a good movie. A bit different from what I call Star Trek.
Like the line said - Whatever our lives might have been, if the time continuum was disrupted, our destinies have changed. Abrams took a break from everything we knew. Every little detail we knew about the Star Trek world is broken. That, on one side, gives the producers the freedom to create a new Star Trek world for the current generations. On the other hand it’s a bit hard to digest for an old trekie like myself. I invested a lot of time to know, learn and imagine all the events in the Star Trek universe, it’s not nice for somebody to come and tell me to forget everything !
Another good thing is the music. I found it great. I listened to the sound track, and I can say that it’s very, very good. Especially Labor of Love. If you haven’t yet, I suggest you go out and buy the soundtrack and listen to it - loud !
All in all, I’m happy that the franchise is back, and with a good movie. Even if it lacks the atmosphere I expect from trek movies, at least is good and worth watching.
