Use The Force Jim — The New Star Trek

So James T. Kirk grew up on Tatooine (err… Iowa) without a father and gets involved in a bar brawl on Tatooine … sorry Iowa.  Spock is made to watch his home planet of Alderran … err Vulcan destroyed.  Kirk ends up on the Ice planet of Hoth …err the ice planet of Vega where he almost becomes a meal to a yeti like creature and a ton-ton …err … an ice lizard before ending up in an ice cave (Use The Force Jim).  And Scotty’s assistant is a pissed off Ewok (Finally, Ewoks done right — pissed off and yelled at by a surly Scottsmen).  Hmm … Anybody else notice the mixing of lores? Hahaha!!!

Well, I disconnected myself from Star Trek purity found the new Star Trek movie was quite enjoyable.  I especially liked the comedy duo of Kirk and McCoy — CLASSIC.     All of our favorite characters were revived and refreshed for a new generation in an action packed alternate universe (literally).  If you are a Star Trek purist I recommend you stay away from this movie because it will break your heart.  If you can let go of nolstalgia and enjoy the movie for what it is, then you will enjoy it greatly.
