    the curse is broken

    For those of you wondering, "Star Trek" is an incredible movie. If you haven't read any of the spoiler articles out there, know that there is an ingenious solution to any problems with continuity one might think of. This is the first odd-numbered Trek film that kicked ass instead of sucking it.

    The curse was not broken. The only thing that made me give it a mediocre rating was J.J. Abrams' ability to inject a shitload of awesome action into a movie. Everything else about it sucked. The storyline, the plot, the acting, it was all a crappy attempt to redefine Star Trek from something that focused on science, philosophy, and character to something that focused on shiny lights and explosions. Gene is turning in his grave seeing that his vision has turned into a whole bunch of unnecessary fluff.

    Gene was a shitty writer and you know it.

    The trailer told me all I needed to know.

    I knew it wasn't going to be "Star Trek" despite the movie's name. But I knew it was going to be chock o block full of action and coolness and hot people. And probably a lot of fun. I wasn't disappointed. But I liked it.

    But this is Star Trek for people who didn't like Star trek in the first place. Nor do I think it's a permanent direction for the franchise. It's Star Trek for the Bush era.

    And like the world we live in, someday the science, nuance and moral quandry will be back. So I'm not bothered.

    And I think this movie was designed for a different target audiance (like me).


    This summed it up pretty good I thought.
