I’ve gotten some very interesting responses to my informal review of the Star Trek movie, and I thought it would be worthwhile to note here that I haven’t found many people yet who agree with me.
So don’t let me dissuade you from going to the movie, folks. I’m in the minority on this one. And even I would like to remind you all that I said it was a good movie. It was. It was also worth seeing.
(I also didn’t like Moulin Rouge, though that was also worth seeing, so I have a track record with these things.)
Here’s another review you might consider reading–James Lileks, who writes for the Star Tribune, absolutely loved the movie, and so far, most of my friends agree with him.
Here’s an AP story about how the movie was made, which was pretty interesting.
And here’s another AP story about the romance in the movie. There’s a lot of spoilers past the second paragraph in this one, so if you haven’t seen it.
