[A]lmost all of the Star Trek films suffered from what professional cineastes call extreme suckitude. The result couldn’t possibly be that much worse than the first, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, or ninth Star Trek films. And guess what? The new Star Trek movie is better than all of those films.

(I always wanted to write an SNL skit called “What if Gene Roddenberry Wrote World War II.” The whole war would involve Churchill and FDR karate chopping or neck-pinching their way across Europe, all the way to Hitler’s bunker, where FDR and Hitler would find it necessary to fight in a gladiatorial pit with long spears.)

Hey Mom, you and Dad gotta go see this movie. At the theater. Seriously. I’m not kidding. There will be a test. 😉
side note: I really, really enjoyed Star Trek. I’m not even going to admit publicly how many times I’ve been to the theater to see it. Jennifer = sci-fi geek.
