No not going to review STAR TREK, especially not going to give spoilers, except this --> TERRIFIC MOVIE... Lets just say that for the average person its a fun film. For Trekkies, its a great ride, see if you can get all the old series references.
You can bet I'm going to see this movie again and again and again. OK so I'm a nerd...I'm proud of it. Listen, I loved Star Trek as a child back in the 1960s, some things never change.
Meanwhile the movie is dedicated to the group The Mission Continues...from the Star Trek website:
"Mission Continues is a community service organization that helps
post-9/11 veterans transition from the military to leadership roles at
home. The Mission Continues benefits veterans and communities in equal
measure. The organization sponsors veterans’ enrollment in a 6-month
service and leadership program. These veterans dedicate themselves to
serving in their community, volunteering for at least 20 hours a week in
community organizations to address issues like homelessness, illiteracy
and unemployment. The Mission Continues provides the tools, the
direction, and a living stipend to these veterans, while the veterans
deploy their experience, their skills, and their desire against our
communities' most pressing problems. Since its inception, The Mission
Continues has awarded more than 600 fellowships and engaged thousands of
volunteers at more than 350 community organizations. For more
information, please visit www.missioncontinues.org or follow us on Twitter: @missioncontinue"
Not bad to remember, and help, those who served in every generation.
P.S. And yes I am looking forward to seeing what J.J. Abrams can do for Star Wars.
