Star Trek movie review
Aaw, Happy Mother's Day. I hope everyone handed their moms a pretty bouquet of flowers and a big wet one on the cheek today. After all, they are probably the most important people of all. Mom's are nature's way of securing everyone a personal cheerleader through life. And speaking of Mom's we saw a very important one this weekend when we watched the new Star Trek movie. Yes, as you can see in the photo, that is Winona Ryder playing Spock's mother. She has a small but very integral role in the movie that sets a lot of the action into motion.
We went to see the new Star Trek film last friday. I was anxious to see it since the Peter Travers review was good. The movie didn't disappoint. From the very beginning when you see what happens to Kirks father, to the episodes showing a pre-teen Spock and Kirk rebel in their unique ways, you learn so much about what shaped the characters and their behavior. And the movie has an awesome version of the future. It's a quirky, over-the top futuristic world that still has remnants of current times scattered about. Skyscrapers in farmtown Iowa. 1960's muscles cars being chased by flying robotic cops..Pretty cool. All in all we thought it was a fun film, that felt fresh and inclusive. Everyone seems to agree.
