We all have our own personal movie favorites to watch at Christmas time. For most the preferred film is It’s a Wonderful Life. For me it’s an eclectic mix of expected and unexpected films that fills me with holiday cheer.
Gut reaction: I came to Star Trek very guarded. After all, the much-celebrated J.J. Abrams’ first attempt at film theatricality was the tedious and prosaic Mission: Impossible III, and his first role as producer was the emetic Cloverfield.
