I finally got a chance to catch a matinee of Trek this week, and I really enjoyed it as well. I thought it lived up to all the positive hype it has been getting, and I can't wait to see it again when the DVD/blu ray is released. Like I mentioned earlier in this thread, I'm not someone who is deep into Trek...I watched reruns of the original series, saw I think four of the movies (first three and the one with the humpback whales), and watched TNG pretty religiously when I was younger. Aside from that, I've been completely out of touch with Trek since TNG ended (actually, a little before final seasons I believe). That said, this was by far my favorite of my Trek experiences. I don't have one complaint in the whole cast, I really enjoyed the entire Enterprise crew. I especially thought Karl Urban was entertaining as Bones, hard to believe it is the same guy who played Eomer. I really thought both Kirk (Pine) and Spock (Quinto) were well cast too. Already looking forward to the sequel. I don't like to even draw comparisons with Star Wars (I'm always a SW fan first and foremost), but I did notice how this movie seemed to keep me interested start to finish. Sometimes, when I watch the prequels, I have the urge to fast forward through certain parts of them - I don't think I'd do that with this movie.
