Star Trek XI: 8 Thumbs Up

In the United States, Trekkies undoubtedly waited in long lines last weekend to pack the latest cinematic passage to other worlds, Star Trek XI. Here in Bulgaria, Colleen, Ryan, Brett, and I walked up four minutes before start time and chose our seats in a theater with four, that's right, FOUR, other viewers. We oohed, we aahed, we laughed and we flinched as Kirk was reluctantly recruited into Starfleet, the Romulans and Vulcans battled across a time-space continuum, and Ohura and Spock made eyes at each other (??!!). 

The verdict? 8 Thumbs up (Colleen's left, Colleen's right, Ryan's left, Ryan's right, Brett's left, you get the idea...)

Rotten Tomatoes gives it 96% and says it appeals to Trekkies and non-Trekkies alike. We agree. Go. Get your tickets today.
