Under 250: Star Trek


Love & Squalor wasn't born at the time of Star Trek's late spring release, so i feel i must insist at this time that if you are amongst the handful who have yet to see the fully accessible glory that is J.J. Abrams's reboot, do so now. Star Trek is a movie that deserves multiple viewings, and that is as exciting as the movies you became infatuated with as a kid (only this one will hold up). The original series is imagined with a fresh new cast and flashy special effects while maintaining the humor, primary color palette, established character archetypes, and overall adventure of its source material. With a plotline that bends space time to allow for shifts and spaces, the film travels effortlessly (and at warp speed) through terrain that is nothing if not 100% enjoyable. Heading up the cast are Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, who make a pitch perfect Kirk and Spock and are matched toe for toe with a spectacular supporting crew. It's like Karl Urban was born to play Leonard "Bones" McCoy. Seriously, if you don't have a blast with this movie, you need to re-evaluate your life.
