3D was solid. Honestly for me 2D or 3D are fine.

Just saw this a few hours ago in 3D. I honestly don't see a ton of movies in 3D but I thought Avatar was really well done and I have to say this new Star Trek was fabulous in 3D. They didn't over do it like some movies. But some scenes are just much better in 3D IMO, like when they jump off the cliff. In 3D, you FEEL that almost.

The movie itself was bad ass. The special affects were astonishingly impressive. When that ship hits the ocean and crashes through the city, WOW.

If you can see this in IMAX 3D - do it. I did however, bring my own 3D glasses I got when I got my TV last year. I think they helped some. At least they were more comfortable but I think they show the 3D better also.

I completely I agree with this post and if I was anywhere near you I'd volunteer to babysit just you could see it so we could talk about it. I loved it, but I am not as let's just say biased about the series. I just watched if from a set aside reality and any previous star trek perspective and enjoyed the ride in 3-D. I took my Godson and we had a blast. I don't want to say more because I truly think it's better to let everyone experience it for themselves and make their own choice. I liked it though and am, as you said also, looking forward to The Man of Steel (though my reasoning has more to do with the eye candy playing Superman...hey, you get your hot Asian chicks, I get hot English dudes wearing tights, it is what it is).

And K I am always right, when will you learn that? (ok, maybe not always, but at least sometimes).

I hope you enjoy the film K.

Just watched Star Trek: Into Darkness. This was at least 10 times better than the first one. Highly, highly suggest everybody watch this one. That is all.

Saw it this morning. For the record - I loved the first one and am a big Star Wars fan and to a lesser extent, Star Trek (though I have seen all the original films multiple times). I never watched any of the original Trek series, so don't know much about the Khan backstory for what Abrams did to ruin it for me. I did watch a ton of next generation though, which really states more for what time period I grew up in than anything else.

I love the action and think this one sits pretty well with the first one. I think I like it better though as Cumberbatch steals the show with his performance in this. Total badass!

I really wish there was some way to continue this alternate time path that Abrams started though. Now that he is leaving, I wonder what happens as I really think they have some good actors in place. The ending even set up a potential series perfectly, but I already read that won't be done as Abrams and I believe CBS couldn't come to an agreement. It would be a killer series though and I hope someone else can take up the directors chair and give us a couple more flicks out of this series.

All in all - I go to movies to be entertained and I was in this one. More entertaining to me than seeing IM3 a couple weeks ago.

I had mixed thoughts on wanting to see Man of Steel, but the trailer before Star Trek convinced me it is a must see for me as well this summer. Also, Elypsium looked pretty interesting as I had not seen any trailers for that previously, but I digress...

Anything would be better than the 1st reboot.

I will go see it but I am waiting until it hits the dollar theater, we have one with a very good screen, used to be a legit theater before the multiplexes hit it big, I actually saw Undiscovered Country there when it was part of a big chain.

Remember in the other thread how you said that the first movie lacked any sense of humanity. Well this one had a dash of that. Well a small dash, but it was there. For me Undiscovered Country was the best but this was better than the first.

Such a ****ty third act. Ruined the movie for me. Abrams is a hack and Lindelof should go write some cartoons or something.

Don't confuse the messenger for the message. It really is a terrible 3rd act. While I over all hated the film, even I can admit that there were some decent elements in the first and second act before the entire thing goes off the rails and gives us one of the most hackneyed 3rd acts I have seen in the last decade. It really does devolve into self parody. The saddest part is that I can totally picture the writer's room as they "brainstormed" this crap ending giving themselves high fives for how clever they were being about subverting another classic Trek scene instead of trying to actually come up with a new iconic scene. But, I guess the rule of thumb here is that if you can't write a decent movie make sure you drop references to a good movie.

Good lord, those hating on this flick see way too many thing wrong in life in general. WTF dudes, this isn't an academy winning drama, like silence of the lambs or Schindler's List. Hahahaha. It's a ****in action movie. Try to see it for what it is and then you might be able to enjoy it. If you go in thinking your're going to see A Beautiful Mind or Black Swan, then of course you're not going to like it. ****in grow a set and realize it's an action movie but a damn good one. Nothing like a Transformers or Battle Los Angeles.

Star Trek - especially a reboot - is a hard sell. It isn't ever going to be The Godfather, so film snobs (I actually love film snobs) will hate it. And loyalist fans will probably hate it for not being the original. That leaves very little wiggle room.

I enjoyed the originals and I enjoyed the first reboot movie. I think it's because I don't expect Schindler's list when I go see a Star Trek movie and I don't feel married to the originals.

FWIW Rotten Tomatoes has it at 86% Fresh with users having at 89%.

That puts it ahead of Iron Man 3, Oblivion, The Great Gatsby, Fast Furious 6 and 42.

Point being, if you're going to the movies, you have a decent shot at enjoying this.

I liked the first installment of the Star Trek reboot. The second one not so much. It has it's moments. A lot of the action is engaging. I didn't really get into the self referential attempts to spin the series mythology, especially towards the end. Mirroring a prior iconic scene probably isn't the best idea when there's not much chance it can be compared favorably. That isn't comparing this movie to Citizen Kane. It's just comparing it to The Wrath of Khan, and given that the movie is begging for that comparison, that seems fair.

IDK when I was a kid I went into the theater expecting action and adventure and got a couple iconic movies that showed the human condition and made me think a lot about what I would do in a No Win situation or what path is mankind is on re robots (think Terminator type Singularity years before Terminator came out).

I am calming down on the reboots, in another couple of weeks people will have forgotten they even existed. Meanwhile the TV Series and TOS movies will be quoted and found by new generations who might not like the effects in TWOK but love the story more.

I think what people don't realize with the Star Trek TOS when they make fun it. Star Trek came out BEFORE we actually went to space. Today going to space has become conventional.

But more importantly any good sci fi isn't about the action. Its about what is it ti be human.

Any there in lies the rub. Star Trek was never meant to be a ****ing action movie series. It was meant to be a sci-fi movie franchise. It was supposed to be something in the mold of The Abyss, or the original Alien, not DieHard in space. It was movie franchise that was meant to grapple with bigger ideas and themes, and while the original 10 didn't always succeed in that endeavor, at least they ****ing tried.

Sorry, when playing with the Star Trek franchise, you don't get to play the "Its just a fun summer movie get over your expectations" card This is a franchise that influenced countless thousands of young minds towards the science and engineering fields, it was a franchise that in a very racially backward time dared to put a Black Woman and Asian Man on the bridge. Yes, their metaphors were sometimes clunky and unwieldy, but this was a franchise that was always about expecting more. To see all of that reduced to a pandering action film franchise is the equivalent of Producing a Godfather sequel in the mold of The Fast and the Furious. So yes, I will criticized this poorly conceived, poorly written, and poorly executed pile of excrement.
