STAR TREK: THE IOWA REBOOT
Specially for Mr. D. Bauler:
My local small-town paper - The Western Gazette - reviewed the latest Star Trek film, saying, "Kirk spends his time in Iowa, getting drunk in bars, hitting on women and starting fights."
I might go and see this. I don't like Star Trek, but the idea of setting one of the films entirely in Iowa appeals to me greatly. It sounds like a novel way of rebooting a faded franchaise.
The Western Gazette asked people coming out of the cinema what they thought of the film (these are genuine quotes from the article):
Fenn Roberts, aged 17, of Yeovil, said: "I found it a bit hard to follow, but the special effects were good."
Alan Powis of Scotland (who seems to have come all the way to Yeovil to see the film), aged 60, said: "It was a bit hard to follow in places, but I'll probably watch it again so that I don't miss anything."
The film is rated 12A.
JJ Abrahams is already preparing a sequel - Star trek 2. According to IDMB: "Kirk spends his time in Yeovil, getting drunk in bars, hitting on women and starting fights. It will also be a bit hard to follow."
