Having been getting myself properly excited about the Star Trek movie since about January when trailers and stills started trickling out, I was fully expecting to be at least a little bit disappointed when I got to see it. It's very hard for something to live up to the degree of hype that I've built up for that movie. But nope. Not a bit of it. It was every bit as awesome as I hoped it would be. And then some. It's been 48 hours now since I left the cinema after seeing it, and I'm still bubbling with excitement. I'm kinda glad it was just Mr G sat next to me and an empty seat on the other side, because I kept fidgeting and flailing and squeaking with excitement throughout the film. And that was with me trying to restrain myself. I would have gladly turned around and gone right back in to watch it a second time, but now two days have passed I'm gagging to see it again. It's almost like a physical craving.

Cut for mild spoilers; spoilerific discussion is welcomed in the comments too if you feel the need. Reader beware :) )

The story was pacey, the performances were excellent, and I came out of the cinema feeling better than I had done in weeks and weeks. That's what good movies are supposed to be about. I can't recommend it highly enough. Nor can I wait to see it again.
