About halfway through her Times-Online review of the new Star Trek movie, Debra Craine tells us all we really need to know:

Gone is the gloom of the last Star Trek film, Nemesis (2002), which seemed cast in the depressing shadow of George Bush’s post-9/11 America. The prequel, though conceived before the rise of Barack Obama, taps into the optimism of his presidency.

The film “taps into the optimism of the Obama presidency”? Ooh, I can’t wait! Captain Kirk will travel to Qo’noS and apologize to the Klingons for the past behavior of the Federation, and later refer to a book given to him by the Romulan leader entitled “101 Ways Earthlings Ruined the Galaxy” as “a nice gesture.”

After that, Kirk will sit through a Starfleet-bashing tirade by Khan Noonien Singh without flinching. And — this is the best part — if you want to see the movie, the tickets will be paid for by everybody who makes over $250,000 a year and/or charged to our unborn grandchildren! Count me in!

Watch for a rather awkward cameo appearance by Joe Biden as he enters the scene and says, “Stand up, Captain Pike!”

The original Captain Kirk helps sum up how I feel about Ms. Craine’s review:



It occurred to me that any optimistically Obamafied Star Trek movie should feature a touching romance between Nomad and Teleprompter:

    Really nice points that you have highlighted in this article. I have really enjoyed it. Movies are the best source of entertainment or refreshment. The Internet has been perhaps the most outstanding innovation in the field of communication in the history of mankind. However, as with any innovation, the Internet has its advantages and disadvantages. Nevertheless, the number of advantages outweigh the disadvantages.
