This was one of those movies that it seemed like everyone had an opinion. In this episode, we discuss the latest entry into the Star Trek movie franchise and actually get into a bit of a debate, where one of the dorks liked the movie, one despised it, and the other sulks quietly in the background while nursing a hangover.

One thought on “Episode 07. Star Trek: Into Darkness

  1. As someone who has grown up with the franchise, watched every show and every movie (I’ve watched the entire DS9 series at least twice!), suffered through characters/actors who I didn’t care for (Tasha Yar, seriously?), I realize we all have opinions about what makes Gene Roddenberry’s vision so lasting.

    That being said? I LOVED this movie. I even capitalized it I loved it so much. The play between the characters, the more human version of Spock, the absolutely delightful “Scotty” (although his sidekick is one of those throwaway characters I dislike) as well as a much better crafted plot this time made for a completely enjoyable movie. The action is intense, the friendship deepened between the characters, the twists and turns are a bit predictable at times, but that is reminiscent of the franchise as a whole. I am already excited for the next movie. I tremendously respected and appreciated the ties in this movie to the elements that make Star Trek great – strong story line, deep connection to the characters and a philosophical element. In some of the older Star Trek episodes the moral/philosophical element can be oppressively heavy handed. No so in the new Trek movie. The ideas of friendship, family and humanity are woven through this movie with subtly and I will outright admit I more than teared up during the climactic scene in the engine room. EVEN though I had already figured out what was going to happen, I have already come to care about, respect and enjoy the new actors in their iconic roles.

    So yes, ten out of ten. And let the haters, hate. Those who can not embrace change can go sit and watch old Star Trek reruns and bemoan the ‘good old days’ and spout off all the reasons why ‘Star Trek ain’t what it used to be’!!!!

    I, on the other hand, will boldly go and embrace the new with a continued reverence for the old. This movie makes it possible to love both.
