Where a Great Many People Have Gone Before

Over at Movie Mis-Treatments-- sacrilege!--the new Star Trek movie.
I really did like this movie. As a Trekker of long standing (35+ years), I thought the creators did an excellent job of capturing the spirit of the original series, casting believable young versions of the classic characters (with some exceptions), and at the same time reinvigorating the Trek universe in a way some of the later series and movies never really did. The effects work is incredible, and the writing, direction, and acting were generally excellent.

But I’m still going to make fun of it nonetheless.
Oh, and let's not forget a true holiday classic: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.
