I'm one of the few here who likes ITD a lot. It's incredibly fun, even if it is very silly in places.
Moviebob reviewed it. When a known hater of the first two reboot films starts off his review with "this movie is so fucking good", you know there's been a massive increase in quality. First the Ghostbusters review and now this, I imagine Bob must be very happy to be able to do positive reviews more often. I mean, nobody likes watching bad films. Unless they're hilariously bad, and that's best done with friends.
I don't get the hate for into darkness, saw it before seeing this and that movie has a level of gravitas that this movie doesn't even come close to having.
I don't get the hate for into darkness, saw it before seeing this and that movie has a level of gravitas that this movie doesn't even come close to having. I felt I was watching a random episode with some cliche villain and plan. The level of quality in the directing took a shot as well, nothing even comes close to the awesome space jump scene in ID.
I loved the start of the movie because it felt like Star Trek. Great character building, I thought it was going to go deep into the issues Kirk and Spock were going through but it gets left behind of a cliche action plot. Then it becomes Star Trek again for 5 minutes at the end.
Worst of the three for me, not bad, these movies are still entertaining but this felt the most throwaway of the trilogy.
I'm glad you guys liked Into Darkness, that one was good, Beyond is a bit more fun though.Agreed. I thought this was good and I see what you're saying about it, but I was a lot more into Darkness than this. This was a very fun romp with some really beautiful and great scenes, but nothing really had me hooked and on edge as much as Khan, and the conflict with Kirk was great. Most people rail on it for being a Wrath of Khan remake but after actually seeing Wrath of Khan (after I'd seen Darkness) I was just like wuuuut
I also thought the. Just not as exciting to me. But very good overall.villain standoff in this was way worse. In the second one you had this awesome hand to hand combat with really thrilling music and this one was just... they float around after the maguffin basically lol
I liked Trek '09 more as a movie but honestly, Beyond felt it had found a confidence in itself. A voice.
It felt to me like a true Star Trek to stand along the rich history the series has because ultimately with this voice, the characters all had a verve about them that put them up to the ultimate Trek litmus test - I can honestly say I'd want to watch this crew even if the actual story wasn't very good (which thankfully it was passable here)
So many times through the generations of series', a shows strength isn't with its good episodes - its whether I'd watch even the bad ones. The cast acquitted themselves nicely here
If I have to nitpick something I would say that I expecteda whole new Enterprise design by the end of the movie, but it seemed like a carbon copy of the original one?
It's actually different in a variety of ways. The viewer just doesnt get a long enough look to pick them out because the overall aesthetic is still very similar.
The biggest changes are probably to the nacelles. The nacelles themselves are modified to be closer to TOS than before, most significantly the lack of the hood but also many other details. They're set wider apart now, too. The struts holding them on are very different in size, shape and location and attach at the front.
The secondary hull is shaped different as well, thinner and sharper in the back with a straighter neck going to the saucer.
The bridge module itself looks to be inspired by TMP refit Enterprise.

And I've to say, after thinking a lot about the movie...he is right. For me personally the first 20minutes or so are amazing, then the whole movie falls apart.
I don't remember actually, but Wheaton ends with this line:I didn't think they were on the bridge when he found the bike?
I give it 1 out of 5 motorcycles that are on the bridge of a starship for no logical reason, and still work after not being used for an incredibly long time for even less logical reasons.
I don't remember actually, but Wheaton ends with this line:
In the TNG episode it was Federation citizens being forced to move due to interstellar treaty in an attempt to keep peace. In Insurrection it was non-Federation citizens having their planet stolen due to greed.You know the weirdest thing about Insurrection?
There was an episode where Native Americans were straight up forcefully relocated and Picard followed that command (though conflicted) while chewing Wesley put for defying him. Yet, he is happy to save the ehitest bunch of people due to a chick he wants to bone.

But it wasn't their planet. They could have done more with the morality instead of black or white. True missed opportunity.In the TNG episode it was Federation citizens being forced to move due to interstellar treaty in an attempt to keep peace.
