Less Than 24 Hours to Go...

National Post said "Star Trek has it's Mojo Back" on their review.
If you happen to be in Metropolis, and somebody next to you says, "Look! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!", then you know that Clark Kent isn't the only citizen there who needs glasses. I mean, come on! Three guesses to tell a flying guy in his day-glo pajamas from a sparrow or a 747? Time to visit the optometrist, I say.
I read a quote from J.J. Abrams today advising purists to 'stay home.' I don't know if you consider yourself a purist, Mr. Woods, but I know a number of people who think you are...
I'm not sure how to define a purist in this context, but there's good stuff in this movie for long-time fans and complete newcomers. My very earliest memories involve watching Star Trek, I grew up with it, and my secular humanist philosophical outlook was heavily influenced by it...I think it's fair to say I loved the original show, if you can love popular culture at all.
I'm glad I didn't stay home.
