took my parents yesterday, who are huge star trek fans (our dog was named trekker, nuff said) and got me into it when i was but a wee lad, although i mainly grew up on next generation. the movie was great, and i thought all the characters were really well done, especially the little nuances, which are what make the characters. Everything about this movie was well done: music (sometimes a little more epic than necessary, but hey, it's star trek) and cinematography were awesome and fit the storyline well. The romance plot was a little strange but i kind of understand where they were going with it.
one thing i thought was odd was that (trying to not give anything away) what nero did to pike to get information was never resolved. they just kind of ignored it. i'm sure the scene was cut for time or something, but it was a little weird.
i didn't want the movie to end and i can't wait for the next one. definitely going to have to see this again.
Two things come to mind regarding Pike.
1. They introduce him and do follow up but the only reference to the series is in name only and how he ends up sitting. It also lets us know how he and Spock become to be which also comes from the series.
2. They bring in a little part of Rath of Kahn if you recognize it. This reference will answer your question.
Can't wait to see this myself I can remember standing in a line wrapped around the movie theater to see the Search for Spock LOL. And no I wasn't dressed up in a custom Laney so don't even do there :damnit1:
hahaha, you know me a lil too well! :07: your still a dork in my book :22:
