Star Trek

Hmm...  What to say.  Well, so as not to spoil any plots, let me just say that I thought that the plot was a bit silly, with a typical sci-fi "let's make up a quick deus-ex-machina to save us from re-writing the whole script" section, and an excuse to bring in Leonard Nimoy.

I wonder what happened with William Shatner?  Did he refuse to participate at all?  Or was he snubbed?  Anyway, it doesn't matter.  Overall, it was at least as entertaining as the best original Star Trek movie, Wrath of Khan, and certainly the effects and the characters were great and carried the day.

One thing of note - the imitation of Bones by Karl Uban deserves special note - he did an uncanny young man version of the Bones Kelley DeForest did in the 60's, and there is a hilarious 'giving the hypodermic' series that just can't be missed.

Great fun, take anyone over 8 or 9, they'll love it.
