i saw star trek last night and found it to be average in all respects. i'm not a trek fan, really, so i can only really judge it as a sci fi movie. it was very jj abrams - feed the criteria for scifi movie into a fucking computer and film the necessary elements it supplies (another stupid fucking time travel story? do we have to?)
it did have likable characters and performances though chris pine's kirk doesn't make my own list. what a stupid douchebag.
i found it enjoyable enough to catch on hbo and guess i'm being harsher than i might otherwise be based on the ridiculous glowing praise.
