I won’t be satisfied with this franchise until the Enterprise gets airbags.
BUT THEY FINALLY HAVE SEATBELTS! Maybe there will be airbags in the next movie?
And where are the cupholders? Do they not get thirsty in space?
well… maybe next time?
I…love Benedict Cumberbatch. The end. lol!
Hubby and I went to see Star Trek Into Darkness for my birthday and I was NOT disappointed. I LOVE what they’ve been doing with the franchise–staying true to the spirit of the thing instead of getting hung up on trying to duplicate everything exactly (incidentally that”s what I love about Sherlock as well.) The relationships between the characters are joy to watch. Possibly my only complaint is that they’ve made Spock *really* emotional *really* quickly. But it isn’t as if they have an entire TV series in which to develop things, so I can forgive 🙂
Benedict Cumberbatch is pretty epic in his own right.
I love the dynamics between the main characters – it is a joy to watch, and they do stay true to the spirit of the original series SO well.
My husband kidnapped me and took me to see Star Trek and I loved it. I’m not a huge fan of the series or the movies, so I don’t pay much attention to the little details. My husband does, though. He’s a huge, huge, huge fan of anything Star Trek. I just love Benedict Cumberbatch and was actually cheering for him through most of the movie. I’d only seen him in Sherlock, so was a little worried to see him as the bad guy, but he was just so freaking good. I’m now hopelessly devoted to him.
I… cheered for Khan in both the original series and this one XD. I love the bad guys, what can I say? And especially in his case, he had a REASON to be the way he was, so it’s easy to feel sympathetic. *sigh*
But yes, Cumberbatch did VERY well at being the bad guy. So well.
I’ve been wanting to see this movie for a while. May have to make it a weekend treat. Thanks for the great review as I’ve been antsy about how it would turn out 🙂
You’re welcome! 🙂
I loved this movie!! It’s so great to see the franchise come alive again. 🙂
p.s. Benedict Cumberbatch is amazing! I’ve been watching him in Sherlock and he’s a big reason why I was excited to see Into Darkness.
Benedict Cumberbatch is… awesome. Yes. I may have squealed a lot when he was announced for Into Darkness. And The Hobbit. 😀
Gosh I’ve been dying to watch this since it came out, but I still haven’t found the time! Thanks for your great review!
