I just got back from Albany where I met up with Earl (who is working at the other office this week) to see the new Star Trek movie in glorious IMAX. Not only was my date quite spectacular but the movie was well worth the three hour round-trip I just completed.
I’ll write more later, but as a die-hard Trekker I can say that I LOVED the movie. There was enough references to the existing Star Trek to keep the geek in me happy and the way they handled the “reboot” of the franchise is quite nice. The only thing that made me nervous was the new transporter effect; while quite impressive visually it looked a little too violent for my tastes.
I enjoyed the movie very much to the point where I want to see it again very soon. If you haven’t seen it, go see it. It’s well worth it.
Live long and prosper.
