STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Welcome to the grading and discussion thread for Star Trek Into Darkness. This is the place where you can grade the movie in the poll above and discuss every aspect of the film. This thread will contain spoilers, so beware.







When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew. - Trek Today
J.J. Abrams talks about the movie: "Of course you can’t make this for everyone. There are going to be detractors, people who hate it. But I think that the important thing is this movie, at least the ambition behind it, is… if you’re a Star Trek fan, you’re going to be very happy. Because the movie acknowledges, in a big way, what has come before. If you’re not a lifelong Star Trek fan, like myself, what I think and hope is that you’ll have a great time and you’ll feel something and you’ll be gasping and shrieking and laughing and crying and all that stuff in a way you would not expect to in a Star Trek movie." - Source

J.J. Abrams talks about the villain: "[Nero] was just a raging, vengeful lunatic. All he wanted to do was destroy Vulcan, Earth and the Federation…He had backstory but was kind of irrational. The beauty of Benedict’s [John Harrison] is that he’s completely rational. He’s someone that you can have conversations with. You couldn’t sit down and talk to Nero – he’d bite your head off!" - Source

Damon Lindelof talks about making the movie in 3D: "I would say that the 3D in Trek is better than the 3D in Prometheus in terms of the way the movie was designed. Because A.) It was built into the story, B.) It wasn’t used in a gimmicky way, and C.) Every shot that J.J. did was cognitive of the process." - Source

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

The Red Carpet should be opening up in Sydney right about now, with the World Premiere showing to begin in just under an hour. That means it's time to open up this thread for business. There will surely be spoilers ahead.

Enter, if you please...

The embargo has been lifted and some reviews have started to popup. I've seen a couple which were spoiler free so far.

It's not like they're being intentionally mysterious. Keeping their reviews spoiler free is part of the deal in exchange for getting to see the premiere. It still gives you a good idea of the tone and humor in the film and what the reviewer thought of it.

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

IMDB poster just posted that the end credits are rolling now. Posted something about a major character death, TOS cameo, and TWOK mirror. Also posted the number 72.

Poster said they won't do major spoilers though, will let someone else do it.

This is killing me! (I don't even get to see it in May, so I want to know now in case I have to wait till November to see it!)

TWOK = Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan. A pre-Abrams production.

Just seen it at Sydney. I found it very average.

I loved the 2009 movie and I found this average.
