I don't go to the theaters that much to see a movie. With the high ticket cost, the inevitable raping of my wallet by the concession stand and uncomfortable chairs, it's hard for me to choose that over a $1 rental at Red Box. I am a patient man. I can wait for the DVD release. But some movies defy waiting. This week that movie was Star Trek.
I was excited on many fronts. I watched all the trailers, tv spots and even researched a little about the movie. While I expected something good, I got great. Expecting some pre-story to the Enterprise crew, I was surprised by a new take on the old story.
Without spoiling it for everyone, all I can say is, it's a whole new universe out there for the young crew.
