Star Trek: The Next Great Date Movie

We saw Star Trek this weekend and no amount of build-up spoiled our fun. From the action-packed and touching start to the end, the movie is filled with inter-galactic battles, Vulcan philosophy, even several hand to hand combat scenes and laser gun fights that will remind you of the t.v. show. Whether you're a trekkie or not, the movie was designed to satisfy.

True to the reports about a super attractive cast, the movie stars Chris Pine as James T. Kirk with blue eyes almost as dreamy as Paul Newman's; and Zachary Quinto as Spock, who's sexier here than as Sylar on Heroes. The casting was spot on, Pine plays Kirk as a reckless but brilliant lady-killer and Quinto's half-human/half-Vulcan Spock is almost totally in control. Zoe Saldana plays the beautiful and short-skirted Uhura who's tangled in an intriguing romance throughout the show. (Pictured above Director J.J. Abrams, Eric Bana who plays Nero, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine.)

Did we rush to call Wolverine "the best date movie ever?" You can judge for yourself after you've seen Star Trek. You can't lose if you pick between these two movies.
