Is it Cool to Like Star Wars?

I am not a Trekkie. In fact, I've never seen a Star Trek movie or episode of the numerous Trek TV shows. The mere thought of Star Trek shows makes me roll my eyes.

I was shocked to see positive reviews for the new flick. So shocked, I was willing to give it a try.

As much as I hate to admit it....I liked it! Granted, I wasn't sure what was happening half the time. But, it was pretty darn good!

The story of how the Star Trek enterprise crew came together was very well written. I enjoyed seeing the characters evolve throughout the film. I thought they did an excellent job introducing each character and making you "feel" for each one.

All the young actors did a great job -- particularly the new Spock, Zachary Quinto. Though I'm not an old school Trek fan, it was nice seeing Leonard Nimoy in the movie. However, I still don't understand how the old Spock and new Spock seemed to coexist. If anyone has some insight, please share.

I'd give this a 3...maybe 4 out of 5 stars. It's not a movie that will change your life....but it sure won't loose your attention!
