Sort of doing this backwards, watching the first JJ Abrams film at home after seeing the new one in the theater (in 3D, which was OK, but it doesn't really seem like a film that really needs that treatment). I know that a lot of Trekkies have a problem with the Abrams reboot; I'm not one of them. I really like the films. They have weaknesses, but I just don't really see the comprising moments that some viewers see in the franchise...it is, after all, an alternative timeline, with similarities, but with pretty severe differences as well. How else would one reboot the franchise?
This is also available for $0 for Amazon Prime accounts, click here. This is showing while we are gone to see the new JJ Abrams film in 3D at the theater...cats have to have something to watch. Shots of ships are pretty cool in this film compared to the original series.
