The new Star Trek is pretty good! Faithful but not too faithful characters, lots of nods to the original series, solid and interesting plot… but a little too much fast action and WAY too many bright lights shining into the camera. What’s up with that? I really thought I would dislike the movie on principle but it won me over. I’m actually excited at the prospect of new life in the franchise.
We took both the kids to Monsters vs. Aliens… good times! It’s nice that they are both old enough to actually sit through a movie in the theater. Thank goodness we don’t have smaller kids. Oh… wait.
