Watched the abbreviated version of Beyond last night. No idea why. While the overall story is just as bad as the previous two, Justin Ling made a much better film with what he was given that JJA. The first fifteen minutes, everything before the explosions start, is excellent. Great comedic timing with the tiny aliens. Kirk's personal log with the scenes of daily life on the Enterprise is done perfectly. The extended beauty shot of the space station is nicely done and not boring, as they often are. Very nice interplay between Spock and McCoy throughout the movie. I don't recall ever thinking "hey, that was pretty good" when watching either of JJ's films. If you skip over the chase and fight scenes and everything regarding the badguy of the week it's a very good 50 minutes, and overall the best of the three movies.
