Here is my 10th favorite…or 3rd LEAST favorite Star Trek movie:
Star Trek Into Darkness
I think I can quickly summarize what I hate about it: This movie expects viewers to be invested in characters based on the foundation of old Star Treks and then lamely recreates favorite climactic scenes from those same old Star Treks. These recreations might be powerful for the uninitiated, but then they would lack the foundation necessary for emotional investment in the characters. For fans, who have these scenes memorized, these recreations are about as dramatic as cosplayers play-acting at a convention.
Here’s what I like:
Cool ships doing cool things.
The score was better this time.
