Star Trek - Boldly Gone Where No Star Trek Film Has Gone Before!


This prequel is a chronicle of the early days of James T. Kirk and his fellow USS Enterprise crew members is a surprise package of excitement, special effects and imagination. Nobody really expected this film to be such an enjoyable adventure but it could not fail to disappoint. Even the moments when the young Kirk (Chris Pine) goes through a period of certainty before he gets on board the USS Enterprise is enjoyable enough and the film progresses at a relentless pace. Thumbs up for the screenplay, the direction and the faultless casting! A blockbuster that actually delivers!

RATING ****
Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Leonard Nimoy, Eric Bana, Zoe Saldana, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg.

Shall make a bigger effort.....

I hope you had a wonderful St Patrick's Day! I did! Lots of beer and food - and Ireland won the Six Nations Rugby tournament! It has been such a long time since I have posting anything on my blog website. I suppose that there has not been many decent films of interest or maybe I am just using that as an excuse! The recent Indiana Jones film was a disappointment, the major blockbusters have not really been more than average and even the critically acclaimed films have been overrated. I liked 'Slumdog Millionaire' but was it really worth eight Oscars? Anyway, I shall try to continue to add more comments to this website.....
