I shamed my family when I was born to a family of "Trekkies" and then became a total Star Wars fan. However I could not resist the urge to go the theater and experience this retelling for myself.
This movie did what my family could not. It made me interested in Star Trek again. I thought it was refreshing and interesting in many aspects and the fact they used the tried and true Time Travel option didn't hurt the story at all.
My favorite part of the movie was when Old Spock met young Kirk. "I am Spock" to which Kirk responds "Bull***t" Perfect response and really made me laugh.
My least favorite was the fact that the phasers sounded like toy guns. PEW PEW! But this was such a minor inconvenience it didn't hurt the viewing experience at all.
