Hated, hated Cloverfield! And honestly, my husband was initially floored by the 09 Trek, but once he started watching TOS and TNG, he flat out said to me there is a lot less heart and soul and more flash in the reboot. I'm really in no rush to see anything Abrams does.
And I'm sorry, but I just have to say, the consensus here is that Fassbender is the best, and Zoe Kravitz is one of the worst- contested with JJ of course. So, is it strange that I find something at odds in the fact that MF and Zoe are dating? Did the script really just serve him better or his he that much more talented? A little of both? If there is a sequel, I somehow hope Angel and Emma Frost are not in it.
I really don't understand why they couldn't have had a recruitment montage, but when the battle came on, left the kids at home so to speak. Like in the original where not everyone at the school is actually one of the team. They really didn't need any of the young mutants beyond Beast and Mystique.
