Star Trek - one of the best films I've ever seen.
I really enjoyed Star Trek. I thought the way the characters were introduced was amazing and the plot and effects were equally as good. The whole film just worked. I expected it to not live up to my expectations but it surpassed them.
Despite some drama in the build up to the film because we didn't leave enough time to get the doughnuts we'd planned on acquiring to eat in t he cinema. Coupled with by the fact people were queui ng far earlier than we had anticipated meaning we didn't get the best and some more trivial problems with the cin ema I had a brilliant time.
We went to see it at the Imax in Birmingham, the screen was amazing although the whole Imax experience was a little disappointing it remained a joy to watch the film in such great quality.
Some of my gripes about this Imax were certain scenes seemed out of focus which was annoying. Occasionally random bits of dirt would cover large sections of the screen for minuets at a time - clearly something on the lenses which was also annoying.
There was no proper popcorn available and the queues to get food and drinks were to be honest unacceptable.
To conclude I left the cinema having seen Star Trek a very happy man and recommend if you haven't see it yet you make arrangements to do so, if possible at an Imax screen, just not the one in Birmingham.
