It's mid-May and we're already two releases into summer: "Wolverine" (yawn) and "Star Trek" (neat-o!). From now until September, the movie forecast calls for enormous explosions, spectacular special effects and mediocre writing. Surprisingly, there's also some comedy and romance for those who don't eat testosterone for breakfast. Here are the summer movies on our radar.
It's difficult to overhaul any successful TV or movie series, but when that series is "Star Trek," it seems downright impossible. Gene Roddenberry's original series has spawned many spinoffs, but fans tend to get a little touchy when someone tampers with Kirk, Spock and the rest of the Enterprise crew.
Remember when you were a kid and you'd imagine having special powers, like being able to move things with your mind? Or you'd pretend you were an alien coming to Earth as part of a mission to save the universe?
