Merry X-Mass Everyone!

Yes. Today is Christmas. While my present to myself was a DroidX phone upgrade, my other present was being able to sleep in today and also have three days off from work. The big seller of gifts this year seem to be iPads and while I never own one, it seems to be a very popular item this year. Who knows… maybe touch computers, like Star Trek, are among us.


I have now seen the new Star Trek movie not once, but twice. The first time I saw it in an IMAX Theater. The video and sound quality was much better than on a normal screen where I saw it a second time.

While I was never a fan of the Original Series Star Trek with William Shatter, this reboot of the series is fantastic.

Though we are now in the 21st century, the graphics, technology, and special effects allow this movie to have rich detail while still preserving the essence of Trek lore.

(If you haven’t seen the movie yet be prepared to be spoiled. Highlight to see the spoilers part.)

While the plot was excellent, this movie did introduced the most common Star Trek “paradox”: Time Travel. Bad guys come from the future… try to take out the past. Past guys figure out how to beat future guys, everything is good.

With that said the acting was the best I have ever seen in a Star Trek movie. Practically everything was the best I have ever seen in a Star Trek movie. This movie is worth seeing at least 3 times, if not more once it comes out on BluRay.

Rating: 11 out of 10!
