Not Everybody's Happy with New Trek Movie...
Thanks to Mary Doman for this link. She wanted my opinion on the article.
(WARNING: There are several spoilers in the attached article, so if you want to see the movie before reading this blog entry, please do so!)
My opinion: I enjoyed the movie, and hey, Wired writer, let's lighten up:
1) It's the first movie of the new franchise and
2) it's based in an alternate universe than the one we're used to
Remember original TREK's first movie, STAR TREK: THE MOTIONLESS PICTURE? (Groan. That one was worlds worse than this newest effort.) 'Nuf said.
Let's give the franchise some time to develop its legs. The new offering is a fun, quite riveting first attempt, and a worthy successor (despite all the deus ex machinas necessary to keep it all on track). It will never replace original TREK, nor is it meant to.
SO WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE FUMING?
STAR TREK SHOULD BE FUN!
