Thanks Jeslyn! It won't be quite the same as being able to see it myself, but better than not seeing it at all.

Great news!

I finally saw this tonight.. FINALLY. I had Transformers: RoTF, Star Trek and Terminator on my list to see this summer.. just have to see Terminator now.

Honestly, this movie was amazing. I remember being a little kid watching this with my mom and dad, so I totally knew enough (even though I was quite young ) to get everything that happened, know all their personalities, etc. I think everyone did an amazing job, it was seriously just amazing.

Also? I cried in the first like 5 10 minutes. That's pretty hard to do.

Glad you liked it and felt that the new actors were loyal to the original characters. That was a big thing for me.

The scene of Winona & George Kirk saying goodbye to each other was very well done.

When you've seen Terminator, be sure to come back and let us know what you think of Anton Yelchin in that movie compared to his role as Chekov.

I will for sure, haha. My dad was like 'He was a bit too Russian.' and I was like 'He's 17.. I think by the time we see him, he's improved. '

But yea.. the first 10 minutes just totally got me.

Yeah, the accent was pretty thick. You're right though that people's accents tend to fade a bit over time. The scene of the computer not accepting his authorization codes was funny. I wonder if he'll tone it down a bit for the next movie?

Yea, he was adorable. I'm sure it will be a bit better by the second movie, and they'll probably even take notice of it.

Who do you think portrayed the original's the best? And least?

Good question. The only one I've had a hard time accepting is Karl Urban as Bones McCoy. I felt that both Chris Pine & Zach Quinto did excellent jobs with their characters. Really, if people didn't buy into the Kirk & Spock recasts, I doubt that the movie would have been very successful.

I'm interested to read other people's thoughts on this.

No way! I thought he was great. He talked out the side of his mouth and everything, even the way he stood.

I thought they all were amazing, though. I guess if I had to pick the least it'd be Uhura. It's hard because they were all so good.

It's true that he did have the mannerisms, but he still struck me as off. Maybe it was the smuggling Kirk on the Enterprise, although that was necessary for the plot. Also, the constant jabbing him with needles,

Really? She was a bit different than the original, but I bought into it.

Yes, they were. That's probably contributed to the film's success.

I think a lot of that was for a laugh, but also to get him onto the ship he had to do it.. it worked for me.

Yea, to me she was just playing someone, not really Uhura, but she was still good enough, lol.

And yea, I think if they had all been poorly portrayed the film would get a lot of heat, so I think it worked out very well.

Agreed, but I thought that they did it once too often.



Star Trek leaves the top 10
Quote:
"Star Trek" picked up $1.7 million over the weekend, and after eight weeks, finally leaves the top 10 -- an impressive run for the film that is now getting some buzz for Best Picture at the Oscars. That brings its total to $249.9 million domestically, enough to land it in the top 50 highest-grossing films of all time. "Star Trek" has a lot of staying power, still holding on to a lot of its audience, and only losing about 30 percent at a time.

It is the third-highest grossing film of 2009 behind "Up" ($264.8 million) and "Revenge of the Fallen."

"Star Trek" likely will fall out of the top 12 next weekend.
