Beam Me Up


"Captain, I'm detecting some signs of intelligent life reading this blog"

Well I have another great movie to review.  I am on a roll with watching great movies.  Hollywood is off to a hot start.  First it was Wolverine.  Now it is Star Trek.  I was hesitant at first to go see the movie.  But my Trekkie parents wanted to go see it. More so my mom than anybody else.  I had to give mom what she wants it was Mother’s Day!! I also was very concerned about the fact that J.J. Abrams was directing this movie.  If you are not familiar with J.J. Abrams work then by all means check out Cloverfield and tell me your thoughts.  I have not seen Cloverfield myself but I know a few people that did and absolutely hated it.  But let me tell you cloud hoppers that J.J. got his sh*t together with his rendition of Star Trek.  This installment actually is a prequel.  The story is easy to follow even for those people that may be unfamiliar with the television show.  The movie chronicles the life of the infamous Captain James T. Kirk and his crew members of the well known U.S.S. Enterprise.  Many followers of the show will recognize many crew members such as Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, Dr. McCoy, and Spock.  The movie does a great job of incorporating key one liners from the classic tv show.  Lines such as, “Beam Me Up Scotty”, “Damn it Jim, I’m A Doctor” and “Live Long and Prosper”.  As you can probably tell, I highly enjoyed J.J. Abrams’ version of this cult classic.  This movie is a must see.

I give Star Trek…
