They are reporting that a new Star Trek movie is in the works. Can this really be? I figured Nemesis would be the last one, after it tanked in the theaters (it wasn't very good, but it wasn't truly awful). But who knows-- even if it doesn't do well, it'll still make a ton of cash. They're reporting that J. J. Abrams will direct it-- he did Mission Impossible III, a movie you couldn't pay me to see. Tom Cruise, as I have been known to say, is a freakin' nutbag. But Abrams also did Lost which is kind of cool.
Still and all, I'd rather see Firefly back on the air, but this'll do for now.
