Let me start off by saying something that may make some of you spit your drink at the screen but……I don’t like Jj Abrams. I didn’t like Lost, Fringe or any of the films that have had his name on the poster. I could go into detail why but that is for another article.

So when it was announced that he was taking the helm of the Star Trek franchise, my initial reaction was to break into a cold sweat and hyperventilate. Ive always been a huge fan of Star Trek and to read that Jj Abrams (who quite openly said he didn’t like Star Trek) was in the directors chair, well it was very worrying.

When I saw the film, to my surprise I did enjoy it and I understood why some of the drastic changes were made in order to make it more appealing to a mainstream audience. »
