The Burger queen is a visage of ultimate beauty.  Soon I will begin the mating process, and we will copulate before she plants her eggs in the hollowed cavity of the withered husk that was my body.

So, uh, yeah, the Star Trek movie was pretty excellent.

[spoiler]I got a bit of a chuckle that the Engineering section on the Enterprise was basically a great big boiler room.[/spoiler]

Sitting pretty @ 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.

As with Casino Royale, this reboot understands that the stone can be bleed more successfully if the cast comes off as more organic than corrugated fiberboard.

The reference to Porthos did it for me.

That and the movie was, you know, good.

I sort of get why die hard trek fans might dislike it. It definitely doesn't feel the same way as most other ST stuff. But so what? Not that the old feel was always bad (just most of the time), there's nothing wrong with taking a concept a new direction. Resident Evil did it, and by god if Resident Fucking Evil can do it, Star Trek can do it.

Though, really, I liked the TNG Romulan design better, even if it was a bit clunky. They kept all the other old style costumes for Vulcans and Starfleet, so the redesign felt weird. But that would be the only thing that wasn't top notch, so go see the movie! They did an excellent job creating an enjoyable action sci-fi for Trek newbs and added in plenty of subtle (and not so subtle) stuff for the diehards.

I missed the Porthos reference, where was it?

There was a LOT of stuff referenced. "That Fight Music" was a verrrrrrry nice touch.

It was a hell of a lot of fun. As one of those terrible old purists, you balk for a second when you realize they are effectively destroying the entire continuity. As a TNG fan, you balk when they play it so fast and loose with logic and sense. But then you don't give a damn because you're having such a good time.

It actually does feel like the old Trek in that break all the rules*, kick lots of ass, take names, and have a great time doing it kind of way.

The one nagging thought is that if they're going to go to the trouble of blowing up EVERYTHING, then we damn well better get some more stories - be it movies or TV - out of this cast and setup.

*Even the ones about causality, continuity, basic physics and other theoretically important stuff.

:ever: Outside of the more noticeable forehead rifts, the Narada crew had the other Romulan traits beforehand (see: Vulcan rip-offs).

[spoiler]Scotty says it early after his first showing, he is talking about how he can transport stuff from one planet to another, even "lifeforms" and that he used "Admiral Archer's prize beagle" to test it. Obviously it can't be the original Porthos, or even probably the Original Archer (due to Archer being 140 years old and Porthos 108, though it is possible humans can live to be 140 in the future, perhaps) but the reference is still pretty obvious.[/spoiler]

Ohhhh, it was an Enterprise reference.

That would be why I missed it.

Saw'd it.  Was weird, wanted to hate the movie for pretty much the entire first half and then it really took off more or less the very frame that Leonard Nimoy first showed up in.  I never was a fan of the cranky self-important old bastard before but he played his cameo/part with such a sense of Ian-McKellenish gentility that he never ever had in the series proper that it seemed to bleed into the entire rest of the film, causing the actors to actually relax and care about what they were doing rather than just try to awkwardly resemble the middle-aged men and woman they were hired to represent.

I love how at this point most of the Prime-Continuity original members of the Enterprise crew have at this point gotten warped off to some other era to hobble around in until they die.  Now if only we can have a movie where Sulu gets transported to Thailand where he fights ninjas and accidentally introduces transgenderism, and an episode of Enterprise where they fire a torpedo powered by the corpse of DeForest Kelley into a Borg cube, we'll be all set.

Actually, that reminds me: I laughed my ass off when old-Spock basically indicated that he was going off to [spoiler]become a manwhore of pleasure leisure. Bow-chicka-wow-wow.[/spoiler]

I basically felt the same way Brentai did.  The film starts out with massive doses of stupid (the scene where a guy flies into space and it's eerily quiet is ruined when every other space scene involves pew-pewing, explosions and rocket engines rumbling), and I was about to :barf: when young Kirk cranks up the "Sabotage".  300 years into the future and the only music is from the 1990s?

But once the plot gets in motion it starts getting better.  It never becomes less dumb, but it does become a tight adventure film with some good acting.  Hopefully in future films they'll delve into deeper themes and plots, but for now this was a good not-retcon, not-remake, not-reboot.
