I'm not uninterested in what you're talking about, rosborne, but I would stil prefer that this thread be devoted to the Trek movie.

Ok, sorry. I guess I'll add any broader sci-fi/movie topics to my Terminator thread.
May go see this one in the theater... (I almost never do, usually wait for DVD).
Better start reading the critics, they can save you time and dollars --
"At the Movies" as I remembered, said "rent it" on "Angels and Demons",
in other words don't waste your money at the multiplex.
i haven't set foot in a theater in 10 years, the last movie i saw on the big screen was the travesty that starred wil smith, wild wild west
i prefer to buy the movies i know i want to see on dvd, and rent ones i'm not sure of
i'll sacrifice not seeing it on the big screen for not having to put up with other movie goers
In my opinion, the plot isn't much to write home about, and the characters are more or less what you expect,
I agree that Zach makes a very good younger Spock, but I also enjoyed Karl Urban as McCoy.
In one of the final scenes of the movie, Chris Pine is standing on the bridge and makes some type of comment before heading for the command chair. Right at that moment I though he did a fantastic job of imitating Shatner as Kirk, he duplicated his commentary as well as his vocal sound and movement manerisms. I'm sure he worked hard on studying Shatner's 1960's scenes to duplicate that scene. Very nice.
I almost saw Star Trek 2009 a second time, but decided to see Angels and Demons instead.
Big mistake, I wish I has seen ST09 again.
