Star Trek - Best Summer Block Buster in Ages

It has a good story, Zoë Saldana as Lieutenant Uhura, interesting characters, great acting, good writing, and the coolest set designs - something very mid-60's mid century going on in a very subtle way. The roots of Kirk, Spock, flashbacks to their youths, issues growing up, etc. The effects raise the bar but are still subservient to the story, a good one at that. Amazing film, check it if you haven't yet.
