IN STORES NOW

Director JJ Abrams scores a direct hit with his reimagining of the cult series. He strikes a playful tone, covering the period from the birth of James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) to his appointment as the Enterprise's captain. While brimming with dazzling space battles, the adventure reveals the roots of Kirk's friendship with Spock (Zachary Quinto) as they effort to stop the genocidal Nero (Eric Bana). Pine is especially compelling when he’s battling Spock for dominance on the ship -- and for the love of Uhura (Zoë Saldana). (Paramount, $30)
