You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James Kirk, is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock, a Vulcan, was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. As fiery instinct clashes with calm reason, their unlikely but powerful partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before. The human adventure has begun again.
"I like this ship! You know, it's exciting!"
Yes, I watched Star Trek on May 4th. Deal with it.
This...this is how you do an origin story/reboot. You've got the cast showing us these iconic characters, then putting their own unique little spin on them, whilst still being completely recognisable as Kirk/Spock/McCoy etc, the standout for me being Karl Urban as McCoy.
Then there's the film itself. This is probably one of the most enjoyable movies that came out in a pretty decent year for films in general. The action is exactly as adrenaline-fueled and exciting as you'd imagine, the soundtrack is one of the most awesome/triumphant I've heard and those opening ten minutes are simply outstanding.
But it really is all about the characters and the interactions between the cast. Which are just brilliant.
Bring on Into Darkness. Let's see what you've got.
I've been a Trekkie for as long as I can remember. Apart from the atrocious Voyager I've watched every series from back to front and back again. I love the universe, the characters and tech babble. And I'm really happy that Mr. Abrams loves all those things as well.
As far as tributes go they don't get much better than this. For it is a tribute first and a reboot second. The care that was taken in finding the perfect actors for these iconic roles pays off as they are all perfect. Unfortunately for most of them though they all get completely outacted by Karl Urban. His take on Doc McCoy is simply perfection and a joy to watch.
Freeing itself from the baggage of the previous instalments by setting its plot in an alternate timeline, thus preserving the contents of the original series without entirely depending on it, Star Trek is the reboot of the highly popular franchise of the same name that attempts to resurrect its vast universe from the ground up for a new generation of viewers but it has a lot in store for the old Trekkies as well.
Taking place in an alternate reality from the original series, the story of Star Trek follows the early years of James T. Kirk & Spock, covering their time in Starfleet which is soon followed by them travelling aboard the USS Enterprise to go against Captain Nero; a…
Anton Yelchin, the Russian-born actor who played Chekov in the new Star Trek films, has been killed by his car at his home in Los Angeles. My condolence to the young actor of so much potential and his family.
You can say whatever you want about the new Star Trek movies, but he nailed Chekov.

"So, we've managed to eliminate all enemy ships, no one on board was injured, and the successful rescue of the Kobayashi Maru crew is under way."
Nobody eats an apple like Chris Pine.
If the only Star Trek movie I like more than this one is Galaxy Quest then I'm a bad Star Trek fan, aren't I?
I don't think it's anywhere near perfect even for pulpy sci-fi (see previous review), but this is a film which uses spaceships and aliens to capture something resonant about family, friendship and masculinity, and that's something no amount of lens flares can ruin.
And it's just so much fun.
Kirk and Spock for 2009 Cutest Screen Couple.
The first time I watched this film I had no prior knowledge of any of the Stark Trek franchise or the characters. Watching this after watching Star Trek: The Original Series--was delightful. McCoy's lines were a little too forced and pandering to the hardcore fans but Leonard Nimoy (Rest in Peace)'s appearance made my life. The plot was a nice move to introduce new fans and not anger the older fans (SPOCK+UHURA = YES PLS). So generally a nice homage.

TASK #8: A film written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman!
After delivering a critical and financial hit with Mission: Impossible III for Paramount, the studio then put their trust in director J.J. Abrams to put a new spin on their ever-popular Star Trek franchise. Teaming with his M:I-III co-writers Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman, Bad Robot partner Bryan Burk, and Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof on the production, Abrams’ take on the series, simply titled Star Trek but originally subtitled The Future Begins, would be a reboot set in a different timeline as well as a prequel that acknowledges the events of earlier Star Trek films and explores the crew of the Enterprise as young men and…
Review coming up shortly.
pike: ur father was captain of a starship for 12 minutes. he saved 800 lives. i dare u to do better
Dumb, but likable fun.
Really action-packed, emotional reboot of the original series. Shame about its immediate sequel (though I hear Beyond is really good and true to form).
great start to a new beginning. great job done to kickstart a franchise for a whole new generation
