A pretty good article on how a critically lauded, box office hit can have its reputation change so dramatically over the course of a year.
After the initial blush, how do you
see STID a year later? Do you still love it or has contemplation tempered your assessment of the film?
I think Matt Singer at The Dissolve pretty much covers it.
Star Trek Into Darkness is so fast-paced, it actually outruns its own logic problems, another reason why it received such an unusual combination of initial positive reviews and subsequent negative buzz. Almost everyone who saw the movie enjoyed the experience. They only started to see the plot holes after thinking about it, watching it again, or reading the criticism that slowly started to cohere around the film.
