UFO Film for the Weekend of Sept. 17: 'Star Trek'

J.J. Abrams' terrific “Star Trek” reboot takes up residence at the Garden Theatre this weekend, giving a ferociously energetic jump start to a franchise that was positively drowning in dandruff. With a witty script, charismatic ensemble cast and truly exceptional special effects --- even by today’s standards --- this is a sci-fi movie that pretty much has it all. I mean, even Winona Ryder pops in for a few short minutes. Worth seeing on the big screen too; intergalactic space battles just don’t look as cool on a damn laptop.
