We saw the new Star Trek movie today. At this point in the franchise, it's a visit with very old friends, with new faces. The story was fine, the acting was comfortable. It's pretty much what I expect and appreciate about these movies. Space scenes, kick ass fighting, enough science talk to almost make sense (to this none science person), personal quiet moments between my beloved characters - sometimes filling in back story and enough personal growth moments to give me a few minutes of the warm fuzzies.
There was a moment in this movie when I thought maybe there would be exploding heads and it cracked me up. It did not happen, but when you see the movie, you too might think such a thought.
A simple acknowledgment of the passing of Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin felt right.
