Trekkies bash new film as "fun, watchable."
I admit to being enough of a fanboy (though really more of TNG and "modern" Trek than the Original Series) to have been very, very leery of this new movie. I don't like prequels in general anyway (I mean, WE KNOW WHAT HAPPENS ALREADY), and we not that long ago lived through the disaster that was Enterprise, so another trip to the "past," where everything looks a few centuries more advanced than it did forty years ago and mini-skirts have made a surprising comeback, so I was not all that keen to see this movie. But the more I've seen and heard, the better it's looked, and now I'm actually not only planning to see it, but kinda looking forward to it. (It doesn't hurt that there are actually a lot of cute guys in it. Trek hasn't always been overfilled with the mancandy, you know. I mean, Riker? Data? Please.)
