No, Chekov and Sulu don't even speak, that I remember. Sulu gets one hero moment, but Chekov really gets shafted in this movie, with barely anything of note to do. Scotty is a bit of a boss though.
Wow, it is exactly like the original series.

The thing with Trek pre-2008 is that it didn't need to be wall-to-wall action. It didn't have to be marketed as the next Dark Knight.
I hate wall-to-wall, mindless action films. As much as I love "The Lord of the Rings", interminable fight scenes put me to sleep - wake me up when the arrows have stopped flying - oh good, here come the oliphaunts to finish them off!

But I did not feel that "Star Trek (2009)" nor "Star Trek Into Darkness" were "wall-to-wall action" films. The action sequences are still permeated with wonderful character scenes. (I also recall people who deliberately waited for "Star Trek 2009" to come to DVD or download to small screen - and then complained. )

Then we saw different movies.

Oh, you mean they don't speak to each other.

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

Thanks for clarifying Andorian dude, what a helpful comment.

I used to post here ages ago, but I won't be returning again. Good luck with your puppet. Any way you choose to dress it up though, its still just your right hand fapping away to a mediocre movie.

I'm left handed.

And, despite you saying it's a "mediocre movie", remember you also said, "I liked it overall, mostly!"

BTW, anyone - do we see an unmasked Klingon, or is that something that got cut?

Thanks CTarnak. Poor Pete. Fat lot of good it did him having his own ship.

We sure do. A row of piercings on his crest. Bad ass!

He got a loud cheer from the audience, too.

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

That's cool. BTW, Cumberbatch was publicly concerned that a scene where he gets to show off his physique might not have made the final cut. Did it?

Reports are that we do -- they have ridges and piercings, with alleged TOS-style fumanchu mustaches.

LOL Dennis are you really asking if Cumberbatch's naked chest was on display?

LIKE!!!

Oh and CTarnak, thanks for the info on the score. I asked a few days ago but didn't get a response from anyone and kind of assumed it wasn't anything great. Good to know that it's excellent.

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

Well come on - I wanna see the genetic superman flex a little, you know?

Plus, it's a shame if he put in all that time in the gym and doesn't get to show off. I don't get the impression that it was a favorite hobby of his previously.
