So last night a couple of work buddies and I went to a midnight showing of Star Trek. Now I am not going to tell you I am a trekie by any stretch of the imagination (that designation is best saved for my husband) but I know enough to know when they are doing a bad job of telling the story, and I am glad to say that I wasn't disapointed!
Chris Pine plays wrong side of the tracks, arrogant (but you gotta love him) James T. Kirk. Alongside him is Zachary Quinto (Syler from Heroes) as Spock. The movie is set during the maiden Voyage of the Enterprise.
Now the thing I really liked about what the director and writers did was that they wrote the script in such a way that they could let the plot go wherever they wanted without the die-hard fans getting upset.
So anyway go and see the movie, trust me you'll be glad you did....if for any reson just to see Chris Pine shirtless
