Star Trek/Star Trek Into the Darkness

I never thought myself as a Star Trek fan, however after being persuaded to watch the first movie that had been released in 2009, I am now a huge fan. The Movie starring Chris Hemsworth, Simon Pegg and Chris Pine is action packed and has you captivated from start to finish. I watched the film twice in the space of two days it was that good. I would recommend watching it twice as I was slightly confused the first time I watched it.

On the day of James Kirk's birth, his father dies on his ship in a last stand against a mysterious alien time-traveling vessel looking for Ambassador Spock, who, in this time, is also a child on Vulcan disdained by his neighbours' for his half-human heritage. Twenty-five years later, Kirk has grown into a young troublemaker. Challenged by Captain Christopher Pike to realize his potential in Starfleet, he comes to annoy instructors like young Commander Spock. Suddenly, there is an emergency at Vulcan and the newly commissioned USS Enterprise is crewed with promising cadets like Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, Pavel Chekov and even Kirk himself, thanks to Leonard McCoy's medical trickery. Together, this crew will have an adventure in the final frontier where the old legend is altered forever as a new version of it begins.               

The sequel Star Trek Into the Darkness was released in May 2009 where Sherlock Holmes' Benedict Cumberbatch joins the cast as villain Khan.

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

I would highly recommend watching both movies even is you are not an original Star Trek fan.
