I’m not a fan of Star Trek. Never have been and will probably never be, but I did enjoy the new movie. Not saying the older movies are bad, not at all. But they are just not something that has clicked for me. Can’t like everything now can we?
I have to admit I mostly wanted to watch this because of Zachary Quinto. I’ve liked him since I saw him in Heroes playing Sylar and he is cool as Spock.
I enjoyed that this was a new start, so a Star Trek noob like me could learn to know some of the characters better. Or at least to get a feeling of them. I have no idea if they are anything like this in the old movies. The movie had a good portion of action. And I thought it was well balanced with story.
The movie didn’t feel long either, I almost thought it felt a bit short. Even if its just a bit over two hours long. This is not going to turn me into a Star Trek fan, but I will watch if they make more new movies. And who knows, one day I might do a dive into past movies. All in all, it was a good movie. Which I can recommend.
I’m not 100% sure, but I’ll probably see Sherlock Holmes in the coming weekend. You know the one with Robert Downey Jr. My parents wanted to see it, so I’ll probably go with them to the cinemas. Nothing is certain, but if they go I’m coming with them. Can’t and won’t say no to a free cinema ticket.
Other movies I want to see this year is Iron Man 2, Legion, Clash of the Titans and Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
