Seeing the movie again tonight (if I get on line soon enough) and this time in IMAX!
I'm also hoping to see it with [livejournal.com profile] head58 once it opens in theaters and [livejournal.com profile] aliwings is away. And then maybe another time after that.

I have seen the movie again. It really needs to become a tv series, with these actors.

I really don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say that I thought the movie was pitch-perfect. The actors all capture the essence of the characters without trying to imitate the original actors. The sets are beautiful, with one exception. The story was quite good and they had a plausible explanation for why everything is different.

I'd love to see more movies in this universe. I'd love even more to see a new TV series come of it with these same actors.

There is a comic company called IDW that has been putting out various Star Trek mini-series for a few yaers now and I've been buying them all. They just finished a mini-series that was billed as a prequel of the movie and I didn't believe it. I couldn't see how it would tie in and thought it was just an attempt by an obscure little comic company to get some publicity.

Then I saw the movie. In the first few moments of the movie I saw how it tied in and thought "OH!". As a result, I knew a ton of backstory which gets decently explained in the movie, but not with the detail I know. And that too was fun.

EDIT: Oh, and at the end of the screening I got to meet with the person responsible for setting up the screenings and give her my impressions of the movie and apparently, it is all going into her report back to the studio!

I have just returned home from seeing the new Star Trek movie. I'll post more about what I thought tomorrow, but for right now I just want to say:

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO000000000000000000000!!!!!!

This is the best Star Trek movie I've ever seen.
I'll go again and again.
It was better than Cats.

And I'm quite serious about going again and again, I'll likely see this at least 3 or 4 times in the theater.
