Star Trek 
Amazing Reboot
3.5/4 stars

The beginning of this movie may have been the 10 minutes that changed the Trekkie universe forever. With the death of James Kirk's father George, there opened up a door to a whole new universe for director J.J Abrams to work with. Chris Pine's performance as the captain of the U.S.S Enterprise was one to be respected but not adored. His wit and disregard for authority made him a very interesting character to get behind. The future Romulan antagonist played by one Eric Bana was a respectable villain but the performance felt a little flat. However it was a huge step up from his performances in Troy and The Hulk. The crew of the enterprise were all well suited for their roles. Anton Yelchin(Charlie Bartlett, Charlie Bartlett) Zoe Sadana(Natiri,Avatar), Simon Pegg(Shaun, Shaun of the Dead), Karl Urban(Eomer,The Two Towers), Jon Cho(Harold, Harold and Kumar), Zachary Quinto(Sylar,Heroes) and Bruce Greenwood(JFK,JFK) were all serviceable in their roles as Chekov, Uhura, Scotty, Dr.McCoy, Sulu,Spock and Cpt.Pike respectively. Although it was not necessary, there was a nice little cameo from a star of the Star Trek's past. It was nice for Abram's to do but not necessary. As for the effects they were about average. However the destruction of two full sized planets made the effects look genius. There were some nice little battle scenes that served their point, were entertaining and didn't drag on. It's a pretty solid film and deserves a sequel.
