AHEM... SPOILER BELOW...











I pretty much called it last year, didn't I?

Kirk commits self sacrifice... wouldn't that shock the average Trek fan? We will see... but you heard it here.
Also, one thing bothering me about the film is Cumberbatch's blood being re-genitive... isn't that a little too convenient? Was that a part of the original Kahn's back story? I know really nothing except for the other films and I don't think that was ever established.

NO spoilers in my recap--

This movie was like if two ticking time bombs had sex, created a bunch of ticking time bomb babies, and then they all exploded.

Loved it. It blew Iron Man 3 out of the water. Both had stories there weren't good for much, but Star Trek nailed the emotions and, more importantly for me, the tension and stakes. It just never lets up. Like the really hot drunk girl you take home from the bar, have a wild night with, and may never see again. Won't change your life, but it's a hell of bargain for the cost of a few beers.

And to whoever was ragging on the performances, I feel like we watched two different movies.

Just saw it. Kicked ass. This is how you make a summer blockbuster. The fact that it was released in the spring is incidental. I thought Cumberbund Bandersnatch was great as the villain, but the whole cast was on their mark. And I LOVED the music.

It's refreshing to see a big action movie and not have my admittedly mediocre intelligence insulted a la Skyfail or Amateurmetheus.

Beats me. I paid for the story.

It's fine. Definitely not a necessity, though.

Just watched 3-D IMAX and it was worth every penny of its $16.95 charge!

Great opening sequence-- caught up right in the middle of the action.

It was awesome... and the packed crowd loved it. I mean, I've been to movies where the crowd cheered and applauded at the end, but the crowd did it three times during the film.

Everyone laughed at all the right moments.

And the tension and suspense-- outta this world!

I grew up with Star Trek-- watching it every Sunday after church with my mom.

They really capture what I remember is the essence of the characters.

And there is a story, a few actually-- a story of brothers, a story of family, and revenge. Strong themes of courage, honor, loyalty, morality, and sacrificing one's self for others.

Damn-straight I cried.

Just like I did when Spock died originally.

I remember listening to Orci and Kurtzman's interview with Jeff Goldsmith after the first Star Trek, and I remember-- I think it was Kurtzman-- who said that he was a Trekkie and Kahn was the best ever Star Trek, so it was no surprise that this was the story-- and hell, WHY NOT?

What was unexpected was Kahn's reappearance and summary crashing into San Francisco

And--

They got the Tribbles in again!

These are an amazing group of film makers.

Thought is was great.

Enjoyed this one, big time!

A little uneven in tone, but totally forgivable. Dr. McCoy character feels like he's acting in obscure tv show, everyone else like their in a blockbuster movie.

Now I have to go watch ST2 again, love how Kahn's regenerative blood implicated as basis for Project Genesis and it feels so seamless the way they did that in this alternate timeline. Good stuff, looking forward to the next.
