At the movies with a fresh look at the past.
I remember watching a fresh episode of Star Trek every Wednesday night with my brothers on NBC. Fresh and new and just a good hour of TV-nothing more or less.
And tonight Tuvia and I sat with a theater filled with fans of all ages for two hours as we watched the newest, freshest episode of this very successful franchise and I enjoyed, just enjoyed the experience.
A prequel, the birth of Captain James Kirk and later, the beginning friendship between Kirk and Spock, on the Enterprise with all the familiar names and fresh faces joining the circle and it was well done. BRAVO!
Of course the story was a bit confusing. We had old Spock, the original Spock offer his blessing to the new Spock. The movie’s logic escaped me, but who cares, I was riding along in the moment and that was enough.
I knew that tomorrow night my mind, my emotions will be satisfied with a French film starring Juliette Binoche. Tonight it was all fun at a summer blockbuster and a bit of remembering the Stark Trek of my childhood.
