MOVIE OF THE WEEK/OSCAR WATCH: Star Trek



Since I didn't see any movies this week that I thought worthy of "Movie of the Week", I decided to pick an Oscar contender I saw earlier this year - Star Trek (believe it or not, it's in the Best Picture race). Simply put, Star Trek (in addition to I Love You, Man) was the most fun I had in the theatre this year. The adrenaline rush began in the opening scene and continued all the way to the end of the film. As a person who was never a fan of Star Trek, I was a bit apprehensive at first, but when I realized it was directed by J.J. Abrams of "Lost" fame, I thought I'd give it a look. Boy was I glad I made that decision, as he totally revamped the franchise, giving it universal appeal to non-Trekkies like me. The cast was great and the film was visually stunning, so it could definitely pick up some golden statues in the technical categories, and I wouldn't be mad if they announced Star Trek amongst the Best Pic nominees on February 2nd.
