nice work

New Yorker film critic Anthony Lane spots an anachronism, or more specifically a parachronism (OED: 'too late a date'), in the new Star Trek.

There's a scene in the movie, which introduces us to Captain Kirk's childhood and early adulthood, where the youthful James trashes a red Corvette.

'Nice work, Jim,' writes Lane, 'getting hold of fossil fuel in the twenty-third century'.
