What else can one ask for? The brilliant young film-maker who started it all, directs some of the greatest actors of both past and present generations, in a story that although heavily inspired by a recent Star Trek story-line, doesn't leave much room to look at your watch throughout its entirety. Of course the plot has major time-travel paradox flaws, but I was willing to suspend disbelief, just to watch more Stewart-McKellen interactions. If it wasn't so heavily dependent on the past six X-Men movies (while its best scene involved a new mutant, Quicksilver), this would've been a sure "MoMagic!".
