The soundtrack to both films has been excellent, the new overall theme to the films certianly is catchy, the title card for Into Darkness with the Enterprise coasting along is one of the best scenes of modern Trek in general.
Completely agree. I don't really whoop or shout in the cinema but I was practically punching the air when the title card appeared. Incredible, gave me goosebumps. Didn't think they could top the first film in that regard but this one blew it away.
I love how, well, LOUD JJ and co have made NuTrek, but in a good way. As if it was showing off the Trek name with absolute pride.
