Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I just saw the film for the second time. I loved it the second time around. Maybe it's that by the second viewing, I had time to acclimate myself to some of the things I'd had doubts about. Spock's "KHAAAAAN!" made more sense the second time around for some reason. Here was a man who had been fighting his emotions for the entire film and now he just couldn't bottle it up anymore. And while acknowledging that Cumberbatch's Khan is sociopolitically problematic, I love the portrayal. I think he was a bit understated if anything, the marketing material and those Harrison character profiles on trekmovie.com prepared me for khan being a way bigger part of the film than he was. I really would've liked more sense of time passing; the whole film takes place in the space of one day. I loved it all the same, though.
