This is how I spent my mothers day! I went to see the new Star Trek movie. Now, while I watched Star Trek re-runs as a kid I wouldn't call myself a die hard fan or Trekkie, but I really liked this movie. It was so exciting I found myself gripping the theater seat! Really! I even surprised myself.
It was fast, but not too complicated of a plot. The new characters had similarities to the old characters which made it fun for those of us who knew the old stuff (my kids didn't get it), but it was still brand new enough that if you had never seen a Star Trek episode you would know what was going on.
It was loud, fast and exciting. Just the way I would rather spend "my" day!
Oh, and Zachary Quinto...if you look past the eyebrows and funny haircut and ears...nice~ just sayin'
