    I always check here before going to movies just to see if it is worth the time and money. Anyhow, looks like it's gonna be a killer of a movie.

    I got my Imax tickets for sat on the biggest imax in florida. I will be ready!

    star trek is so popular- look at the spin offs and movies. There is only 1 way to really make a pre-quel star trek- cast the perfect people (damn what they're asking. Pick the right people with that famous chemistry).
    Then have no-holds bared action, plot, and special effects.

    I am really hoping someone was smart enough to pull it off. If they did- the response will be worth it with the ready made audience, and the new generation.

    The latest incarnation [I can't even remember what it was called, the one with Scott Bakula] wasn't so popular. But they cheese-dicked it. Had the 7-of-9 char with the Vulcan, but the only problem was Jeri Ryan could actually act, Horse-face vulcan chick couldn't and was the worst vulcan in history... eva.

    That being said, Zachary Quinto looks awesome as Spock as well as the other cast members. I hope it will be enough to reboot the franchise and maybe we'll get another decent series or at least set of movies out of it.

    ya wolverine was just ok. I liked all the variety of chars and the spinning head at the end but it somehow just seemed so-so. I am not sure why - perhaps the music?
    music can make a movie if done right.
    I remmeber thinking on jurasic park that the music was too much an indiana jones rip off and the theme just didnt quite seem to fit. It could have made that movie crank but for the most part it just sat there.

    one that really stands out in music is transformers. They did it masterfully there. When you come away with the main tune in your head then they did it.

    Nothing will ever top the music at the end of Fight Club. That fit so perfectly. I'm a huge Pixies fan so maybe I'm biased.

    I'll catch this on a weekday or HD On Demand or on Netflix. The movie theaters have become day care centers for parents who don't know what to do with their kids on weekends.

    Goodfella's, when they play Monkey Man buy the Stones as he walks into the hospital!!

    Not a great movie but the Verve's placement at the end of Cruel Intentions sticks out in my mind as a perfect song.

    back to work, grr...
