The best thing about a good entertainment is that, like a roller coaster that leaves your stomach acrobatic 10 minutes after the ride, you can still enjoy it on the way home.
If you ask me, 'Fancy', is the best line from the new Star Trek movie. Except that that's not what Sulu said. It's what I thought he said in response to the question 'What kind of combat training do you have?'. Even though I've already seen the movie twice (Shh, don't tell my wife), I heard it wrong both times. So I asked last night after the 10:30 show what everyone's favorite part was and I said that part. The Spousal Unit let me know that Sulu said 'Fencing' which was even more delicious because George Takai is a fencer.
Star Trek is a sure footed action flick with an appropriately anamolous story line that works through the simple magic of creating an alternative reality. It does more than respect the heritage, it brings it into vivid relief. This film now bumps 'The Voyage Home' out of the top three for me. And so Wrath of Khan and First Contact remain with Abrams Star Trek as the best films.
There isn't much more to say about the film. It deserves all the hype and fulfills. The casting is superb, especially of the young Leonard McCoy, just bang on for Bones. Abrams and Bad Robot are our fantasy imagination, and this is their golden age.
