Who would have thought that the 11th Star Trek film would have been the biggest film of the year? With J.J. Abrams at the helm, much needed new life was brought to the Star Trek franchise. J.J. Abrams started in TV, creating hit shows like "Felicity" and "Lost" then made his directorial debut in 2006 with the incredibly under-appreciated Mission Impossible III (which suffered at the box office because of Tom Cruise's crazy antics on Oprah). He Executive Produced last year's phenomenal Cloverfield, which would make Star Trek only the second film he's directed. I don't know if there is another director who took on such a hefty task for their first two films with such great success. The story is intriguing, the special effects are great, and the cast, especially the unrecognizable Eric Bana are top notch.
