I am getting on, I've been watching Trek since TOS was first on.
TWOK is my faveourite film of all time.
I've been to Into Darkness twice now. I love it, it's a great film.
I like what they did with the scenes from TWOK, this film IS Star Trek.
It doesn't matter if you see it or not, it doesn't matter if you like it or not it is still Star Trek.
Anyone who is avoiding it just because you don't like the spoilers, do yourself a favour, go see it.
The worst thing that will happen is your preconceptions will be proved, you might also come away from it having watched a great film.
