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.
R.I.P Anton Yelchin
"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.
Uno de los mejores blockbusters en los últimos años.
solid star wars movie
An explosive reimagining of the future. This simplistically - and perhaps confusingly - titled science-fiction action film from acclaimed director J.J. Abrams was released in May of 2009 - and would be the first canonical entry for the franchise since the TV series "Enterprise" went off the air four years prior. Its $385 million dollar box office cume (against a $150 million dollar budget) would be instrumental in reinvigorating the dormant sci-fi series.
The ambitious two-hour and seven minute narrative was one of the first films to pioneer the concept of what I like to call a 'requel' - movies which reboot their story and actors by way of an in-universe explanation. So while there is…
1) C'est un curieux hasard, mais je suis toujours à moitié endormi quand je vois un nouveau Star Trek au cinéma. Je me suis donc rendu compte ce matin que c'était plus cohérent, thématiquement, que je le croyais.
2) En même temps, je me suis rendu compte que ça prend deux films tout croches à Abrams pour en arriver au même point que Nicholas Meyer en un film abouti. L'élégance, la complexité dans la simplicité, l'incarnation des thèmes dans des acteurs singuliers, dans des gestes précis plutôt que dans des péripéties abracadabrantes, c'est tout ce qu'on a oublié en trente ans.
3) Que la caméra tournoie sans arrêt est la preuve évidente qu'Abrams ne sait pas ce qu'il filme, qu'il…
What’s there to say that hasn’t already been said about J.J. Abrams Star Trek? The film is stylish and wonderful, young and energetic, funny and sexy. Abrams directed a sleek and powerful thriller that manages to top most of the classic Trek entries by visual flare alone. The casting is remarkably faithful to the quirks and attitudes of the original characters, but skewed in favor of the tone of the rebooted universe. Kirk is far more lusting than Shatner ever was, Spock has a harder time keeping his emotions in check, and McCoy is…actually, he never changed.
Starfleet behaves more like a military than it does explorers, a point of detraction for the reboot opposed, but the arrival of Nero…
Started my love for Star Trek films and the sci fi genre! love the score, the plot, the story and just in general how it was filmed.
I watched this in the cinema not long after release sometime in 2009.
I really wasn't looking forward to this. As a long time Star Trek fan I was desperate to see the franchise move forward again, especially after the disappointing Enterprise prequel series. Instead it looked like we were going to get a reboot/prequel that just went back to a nice safe place that the producers were certain was popular.
But when the film finally came out I was pleasantly surprised. The mistake of most reboots is that they say to fans; "all that stuff you love...it never happened." However this film managed to reboot the series and breathe new life into the franchise in an intelligent way that…
Star Trek is packed with exhilarating fun, great laughs and all the excitement you could want in a classic franchise reboot.
JJ Abrams has done an excellent job of recreating this atmosphere with the cast that gel so perfectly. Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine make the ultimate opposites bond. All in all its a fun movie for all the family.
The only negatives to this film are in my opinion the villain is a little lost for characteristics, unappealing to the audience and quite generic in his ways. The story can be slightly confusing at times for a younger audience perhaps but its a definite watch whether you are a trekkie or not.
Fast paced, funny and an upbeat start to what could be the best Star Trek film series to date.
Keeps you our your toes the entire time. Masterfully crafted. Wonderful story line and fantastic acting. A fresh take on an old franchise.
Pretty self-explanatory question, but one I find very interesting.
