Default Star Trek-2009 A Happy Suprise!

To be honest, I didn't have big expectations going into the film. I was very happy to be wrong.

The film was well done, JJ got almost the right mix of sci-fi/action adventure/humor that made Star Trek work so well.

Acting was suprisingly good. I saw nods to the original actors, but every actor put their own spin on the charters as well, again making sense since the timeline changed.

I also like the fact the film made it very clear that what we saw was an alternate timeline, so even us "old gaurd" fans can enjoy without feelining guilty.

This film surpassed my expectations.

He was. You saw where he wacthed DeForest's portrayal, and mixed it with his own style to make it fresh.

Do you still work for the "government", or were just pulling my chain when you said that?
I some how see you as Stan from American Dad.

After being unemployed for 4 months last year, I got a job at a new movie theatre as a manager. That was last May, and I have been trying to catch up since then.

But, the cool thing is... With my new job, we also have IMAX, so I get to see some great movies, like Star Trek. I loved the movie...

I still work for the goverment, more like a combination of Henry Kisinger and Jack from the TV show 24 in my job.

Great news on the job Nums! So you didn't join the military?
