As a fan of the original Star Trek, I look forward with great anticipation to the latest installment. It’s nice to see the original characters back in action, brought to life by a mostly unknown cast of actors.
The original choice to play Captain Kirk was Matt Damon, but that travesty would have guaranteed my money going elsewhere. I don’t know who Chris Pine is, but I know for a fact that he is a much better choice for the iconic role than Damon.
Star Trek has gone through many ups and downs and truth be told there hasn’t been a Star Trek movie worth mentioning since, “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn.” I don’t expect this one to reach that pinnacle, but anything close will be welcome.
Pass the popcorn and Romulan ale and let the adventure begin.
