    Star Trek

    Anyone planning on going to the Midnight showing on Thursday? I'd love to go hang with the trekkies, but celebrating graduation with large amounts of alcohol is more important. I love going to midnight showings and hanging with the weird people. Dark Knight last summer was pretty funny, nothing like Revenge of the Sith though.

    Definitely gonna see it Friday night. Trailer looks sweet.

    I listen to Howard Stern on Sirius... He saw a screening yesterday and today couldn't stop talking about this.

    He said it was one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies EVER. So it must be pretty damn good.

    Wow. If Howard Stern is impressed, it must be great. He will rip on anything and anyone.

    All of the reviews so far have been extremely positive. Many are calling it the greatest prequel of all time. Should be an awesome movie.

    Re: Star Trek

    Almost looks like too much action in the trailer. I've always considered Star Trek movies to be a storyline with action sprinkled in. The trailer makes it look like an action movie with a storyline sprinkled in.

    Well, it is a reboot. ST has to try something new or it will be dead forever. If his movie isn't a success, it will be along time before anyone even tries to do anything related to ST.

    Re: Star Trek

    In Ames, there isn't a midnight showing. I do plan on seeing it during one of the 5 showings between 7pm and 11pm on Thursday however.... I haven't heard anything too bad about it yet, so I'm excited!

    JJ Abrams isn't a Star Trek fan, and wanted to make a movie that'd appeal to the masses more.
