Re: The Official STAR TREK Grading & Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]

As a kid, I grew up watching TOS first run, and have been a fan, a hard core fan, for these nearly 43 years and...I liked this movie, it was exciting...sorry, but what was also exciting was that my 13 year old who had NEVER been a trek fan at all went with me and enjoyed it and the fact that he was asking questions afterward shows that this Trek will resonate with those outside the franchise while in my opinion it remains true to the essential core of the characters and themes us old timers love, woven into a new canvas that is accessible to all in 2009.

One thing that struck me as I was sitting in the theater looking at all the iPods and iPhones, was just how hard it must have been to update the look of this and still keep the spirit of the old alive, argue all you want, and I love the old designs as much as anyone, but this HAD to be visually relevant for todays audience, it HAD to look like our future, not 1966's...
Obedience brings Victory and Victory is Life!

What the Frak?
