Star Trek movie, no spoilers: Easily the best Star Trek film since The Wrath of Khan (whose mythos were not forgotten!). EASILY. I was full of so much bounce, squee, and joy at the end when I heard those oh-so-familiar notes from the original theme...!!! *geek joy*
Superior casting. I was uncertain about Chris Pine just on visuals, but I agree with the NY Times reviewer who said he managed to capture the essence of Shatner's Kirk without being an imitator. He renewed my love of Kirk within ten minutes. Also, Simon Pegg's Scotty? Brilliant! I also very much loved McCoy (always did!), although Barb said the actor tried too hard.
In other words, I are very happy.
