But just when that film future seemed to have grown a bit stale, a hotshot named J.J. Abrams leaped into the captain’s chair to reboot the franchise in a way that was as audacious as it was winningly nostalgic with 2009s STAR TREK. Taking the beloved crewmates back to their beginnings with a surfeit of style and […]Read On »
