Now before I get started talking about the actually movie, I should tell you I'm a major Trekkie. I grew up watching the shows, I've seen the majority of the seasons of all the different incarnations, as well as the movies! Not only that, but I love to read right? I can't claim to have read all the Star Trek books out there, but I've read quite a few. And let me tell you, the one's by William Shatner aren't worth reading ;)
So, understandably, this movie had a lot to live up to for me! Not that I think the originals we're perfect or anything, but I still really wanted them to do a good job. Which they did!
Now they made some mistakes - but I'll be a good girl and not bore you by analysing where they went wrong in this new movie.
What they did a GREAT job with was the characters! I was the most nervous about Spock, he's always been one of my favorites, and I was worried that Zachary Quinto wouldn't do a good job. I was worried that I would see too much of Sylar of Heroes fame in his character. He did an excellent job though. I was quite impressed!
It must have been hard to cast and recreate characters that so many people know and love, but they did a good job at making each person familiar. As my hubby put it, they pretty much got all the catch phrases in! Which for a Trekkie like myself was great to see :)
I don't want to give anything away from the movie, so I can't say much more. There was only one tact they took that disappointed me, that had to do with Uhura and a romantic interest. Once you see the movie you'll know what I'm talking about!
