Live long and prosper

Ok, the Star Trek movie was pretty much awesome. I wasn't bored, I wasn't shocked by anything totally weird and outrageous (let's take for example the most recent Indiana Jones movie... shocking). Anyway, I'm really not going to spoil plot points, in case someone does read this and hasn't seen it yet. But I will say what I loved.

Plot: It was really a good plot. It was easy to follow, interesting, intriguing, and for those who have never seen anything Star Trek, it was understandable. I really actually had no clue what the plot was going into the movie, I was just excited for the fact there was a Star Trek movie! Plot was great :D

Technology: It was high tech, to say the least. The graphics were great, but it didn't look fake. It made you feel like you were really there.

Acting: Acting was phenomenal!! I have a soft spot in my heart for Zachary Quinto (love him as Sylar on Heroes), but he did an amazing job as Spock. He was perfect. I love Spock as is, haha. I loved the chemistry between Spock and Uhura. Zoe Saldana, a relatively unknown actress, played Uhura. She did great too. Anton Yelchin was funny as Chekov, and Sulu (John Cho) was great. They all emanated the characters from the original series. Karl Urban played Bones, and he reminded me of the original actor so much, same mannerisms and ability to deliver the lines perfectly. Of course, Scotty was funny. And last, not to leave out Chris Pine as Kirk, who played it wonderfully and worked with Quinto perfectly.

I really do hope they come out with a sequel. It has sequel potential, with the same characters. I don't want it to ruin TOS, but it still could be great. I'm going to see it again soon with Brandon when I get there next week! :D
