Star Trek  sometime this week too.
You  will enjoy  it  for  sure !   Cool It goes  back  to  the old  fashioned  humor  and  old  fashioned  action  but  with great special  effects.  

I saw it tonight.

It was better than the previous one (the Wrath of Kahn remake). Lots of action and it has its moments. The story had its moments, I suppose. I wasn't blown away but wasn't disappointed.

I used to be a HUGE Star Trek fan, but I guess I never got into the reboot as much as the previous series and movies. I do miss the days when Star Trek was about the great stories and the characters. I feel like the reboot is mostly serving up action to the masses and what used to make the franchise great being reduced to a light garnish.

They did do a decent job of honouring the ideals of the franchise in this movie, but it's just not the same for me as it used to be.

For what it was (a sci-fi action movie) it was pretty entertaining.

I dunno, maybe I'm just still spoiled from the ridiculously awesome masterpiece that was the 2004-2009 Battlestar Galactica series. Nothing else will ever compare to it (although Babylon 5 was very good at times).

One of the main things about B5 is that it was more or less written story wise before it went on air.  JMS designed it as a "video novel" all he really had to do in the end was write the scripts.. He tolerated very little in the way of network interference, only as necessary to keep the show running.

lemme hop on my soapbox for a min.
In the film industry most directors and writers don't have total or near total control, a lot of the time the marketing department of the studio has final say.  That's often where films fail; a director will be forced to make a film for marketing to sell rather than the marketing department selling what the director gives them.
