I expected so much from this movie. The first one is absolutely perfect in my opinion. Star Trek Into Darkness was…well, it had it’s lows and it’s very highs.
The first 40 minutes or so, especially the beginning, were kind of, chessy? I’m not sure what the word is that I’m looking for, but moments that were supposed to be charming were, like, cheesy. Idk, but it’s how I felt in the beginning. Another note: TOO MANY GODDAMN RELATIONSHIP MOMENTS BETWEEN UHURA AND SPOCK. Ain’t no one got time for that. Sorry, that’s the Vulcan side of me talking. With that being said, the rest of the movie was really entertaining. 1) Benedict Cumberbatch is a certified BADASS. (Omg, I actually got his name right). He stole the movie, hands down. 2) That moment between Kirk and Spock (you know which one I’m talking about) was just FHSLJFHSLFHAFHALFHAKLFHALKFJAKLFJAFAKFJAKLFJKFJAKLFJLKJALKFA. It took everything in me to not break down and sob like a little baby. GODDAMN. 3) Benedict Cumberbatch is a badass. Yes.
Overall, I enjoyed the movie. It wasn’t everything I expected it to be, but it’s kind of hard to live up to the amazingness that was the first Star Trek. Still, go see this movie. It’s fantastical.
