    Yeah, I leaned over and mentioned to my buddy that guy probably had to take a ration of ribbing for having that name and working on a Star Trek movie - and my friend speculated that he was probably named after the character.

    I said to my companion, His parents must be Trekkies.

    I only noticed the green hand (and the Enterprise).

    Her name is Rihanna. (Actually Robyn Rihanna Fenty, which was how she was listed in the writing credits for "Sledgehammer," though the same credits said "Performed by Rihanna." Interesting how that works.)

    I'm not normally a fan of her work, but I actually thought that song was pretty good.

    Yeah... not my style of music, but I kinda like the melody. I think some of the lyrics don't mesh well with the music, though, since they're stressed on weird syllables. And yes, we get that you hit a wall. You don't need to tell us that many times.

    Though not a song I care for too much, Sledgehammer is the first song from Rihanna in a long time that I didn't consider forgettable noise. And it kind of does flow pretty good with the promos for the movie.

    Boy, it looked familiar. I kept thinking the symbol for some old movie studio, but I can't place it.

    When I saw it, most of the audience got up and left during the ending effects sequence, therefore completely missing both the tributes to Nimoy and Yelchin and the Rihanna song.

    I usually never stay for movie credits, if I want to hear a movie song there are better ways.
    I barely even stay when there are Marvel after credit scenes.

    I did stay for Beyond up to a point but not until the end.

    I only waited for the dedication, then left, so I only saw the green hand & Enterprise.

    I honestly would love to see a video tribute montage of the TOS crew (across TV and the 1979 - 1994 movies) and their various adventures and struggles but put to this song. To me it'd be a beautiful way of present tastes honoring the path they laid out for the current crew.

    I hated the way they put the title of the film at the very end

    Yeah I wish they'd had done a title card like the other two, I kept waiting for it to happen. I found that a little distracting.

    That's a fairly common trend these days, but it goes back a ways. The earliest film I remember doing that was RoboCop 2.

    How times change... George Lucas got in trouble with the unions for postponing the credits (other than the title) to the end of Star Wars. Now the majority of films run the credits at the end.

    I always stay for the end credits. I enjoyed the Rihanna song and the Michael Giacchino score surrounding it. Even on home video, Trek always plays until the Paramount logo fades. All those people made the movie, they deserve the read.

    Considering how long credits go these days, these weren't all that lengthy.

    "What? That's it? No post credit scene?!" I love people.

    The title card sequences of the first two films were fantastic, this one really could have done with one.

    I saw the movie with a friend who has a childhood friend who was with the Dubai unit. He video'd the part of the crawl that had her name and posted it to Facebook. :-)

    You must hate most MCU movies then. And the DCEU, and Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, and well 80% of all movies released in the last decade.
