So, I saw Star Trek Into Darkness yesterday. It was an ok movie. I liked it. It just didn't make me sqee like Iron Man 3 did.
A space ship on the bottom of the ocean is ridiculous, thanks Scotty
As soon as the Cumbervillain started giving his speech I was going. "Oh, pleeeeease, no" Then they took the torpedo apart and I went "Shit, he's Kahn."
And I like Kahn. But seriously? Would it have been hard to keep him Indian?
For a while I hoped BK was supposed to be one of Kahn's people and Kahn himself would be in one of the torpedoes but no such luck.
I did like the retelling of ST - TWoK and all the parallels it draws. But it was a bit heavy handed about it.
The moment ZQ did the Shatner, I burst out laughing, dramatic tension or not.
Calling Spock Prime for spoilers is an obvious solution. Also makes for a nice bit of foreshadowing.
Still, Spock ex machina can't be the solution to all problems.
It's predictable even beyond the whole retelling of STII angle. McCoy poking the dead tribble with some of Kahn's blood? I wonder who they will need to revive later on.
Why did Carol Marcus have to undress before examining the torpedo? Apart from there needing to be some nakedness of course. Did I just miss the explanation or did they just not bother to make one up at all?
Also: Yes, 3D is pretty much *made* for Starships warping out.
