Movie Review: Star Trek Into Darkness

Much better than expected, with epic property damage on the ground and lots of shout outs for us old-time fans but also making it clear that this is an alternate timeline and Abrams is free to take the series in unexpected new directions. Southern Man had carefully avoided reviews and spoiler posts so he was delightfully surprised by The Reveal. This was also Southern Man's first foray into IMAX 3D, which was pretty awesome but left him with something of a headache. Perhaps the excessive lens flare had something to do with that.

Why, yes, the USS Enterprise does get pulverized. As usual. Also, smoke In Space!

I get headaches from 3D when the little glasses are not good. And you never know how good they will be. GP

SoutherMan are you okay? Heard your state was pounded with tornados yesterday and more expected today. The news coverage is covered with awful photos of the damage.

My little neighborhood got flattened a few years back; see this post; but yesterday's storms missed us this time.

So what is the difference between star trek and star wars besides time of airing?
