Thumbs up NY Daily News Review: 5 out of 5 stars! {Spoilerage Possible}

The New York Daily news gave "Star Trek" five stars out of five in their review today.

"J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek' is a stellar gem of a film: Captain Kirk, Spock will live long and prosper"

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertain...lm_review.html

BE WARNED: It's not a long review and not heavy on specifics. but if you've been trying to stay away from plot details you might want to avoid the review until after you've seen it.

I found it funny that even though he gave a very favorable review, alot of the Trekkers bashed him...

Boy, we are a fickle bunch, aren't we? LOL!!

Thanks for the post!

Fickle? Not the term I would use really....more like "Cutthroat".

"It's just our nature". LOL!

The Boston globe reviewer gave it a great review too(4 stars), and before he even saw the film, he didn't think he'd like it!

Indeed.

Although I am getting rather tired and rolling my eyes everytime I see a cliche star trek catch phrase in a review, even if the review is positive.

It just sounds too patronizing to me every single time.

I didn't see any overused cliches like this being used when The Dark Knight was being reviewed.

True...we didn't see any Adam West cliches...
