I said "I bet they can't go a full minute without explosions", and they thought "oh yeah? We'll show him!" Then after a couple of weeks of creative editing, they made it happen.

I'd actually find it brilliant and hilarious if that scene, in the movie, had like 10 explosions but were edited out for this clip release.

Well, a different clip showed her kicking a bunch of people's asses with that halberd looking thing right before her meeting with Scotty began. So while no explosions, it was still down to the wire insofar as high-action chick-foo goes.

At the beginning of the movie - they are day 966 into their mission.

That relates to both 1966 and September '66 when the Show started.  :biggrin:

I bet they thought this was a really clever bit of trivia that only super duper hardcore fans would get.

Even the explosions in the trailer for the spoilered destruction of the Enterprise is an assault on the senses. The rest is apparently bike stunts.

The few reviews I've read have either been positive or at least not negative. The positive ones seem to be from people who generally love the last two films, while the non-negative ones say "Well, it's not terrible". Since I didn't like either of the last two movies, I'll assume this movie is being reviewed as largely an unoffensive mindless action movie that doesn't go too far into the explosions and has some basic simple elements of Star Trek to make the long starved fans grateful for whatever crumbs we get.

Honestly, I didn't see Into Darkness in theaters, I still haven't even seen past the first 45 min in general. However, assuming the reviews don't get considerably worse, I'll see this in theaters. Not high expectations, but who knows? I definitely would love to like it.

More reviews from critics I trust. Confirming what I thought, people who loved the last two movies like this one, people who don't know much about Star Trek and want a fun popcorn flick love this movie. Star Trek fans either like (if they liked the last two) or think it's meh.

Thankfully, meh is better than bad. I haven't heard that it's bad yet, just meh. So that's a plus. I guess.

Sounds like what I expected so far. I expect it to be less bad than ID, but not as good as ST'09. I can't say I see any appeal so far based on the trailers, but I'm not cursing it like I was at this point with ID for JJ pulling that shit with "Khan", so I guess that's something?

J.J Abrams confirmed that "Star Trek 4" is 100% happening.

Chris Hemsworth is supposedly set to return as Kirk's dad.

I'm glad that Beyond has mostly positive reviews so far.

I'm hoping to see it in the drive in Saturday night.  I'll find out this Wednesday when the new schedule is released.

I'm no more biased than you or anyone else. I will form my opinion based on what I see. I just happen to be a bit more discriminating than the average idiot who's content to shut off their brain and watch mindless explosions and plot holes for 2 hours. Mocking me in advance won't negate my equally valid opinion.

You're also very susceptible to confirmation bias. Any criticism levied by any of us will be seen as loathing. Particularly my own, since you're convinced I despise just about everything Star Trek related.

So sorry for being tired of generic Hollywood shlock, and not finding it entertaining to have my intelligence insulted.

Going to see this movie tomorrow, so within 24 hours you'll know how bad it is. ;)

Of course i'm not going to be THAT guy that says reviews really mean anything but ....93% on Rotten Tomatoes.

i've seen mostly 4/5 scores and they all say it's far superior to Into Darkness and feels like Star Trek again.

The worst reviews i've read say it's just "meh".


Sorry i'm clearly so braindead and stupid that I enjoy enjoying a fun exciting movie with amazing visuals for a couple of hours to forget how awful real life is.

Because no movie ever gets over-inflated reviews before it's come out to the wider audience ever. Godzilla got amazing reviews when it came out, had over 9 on imdb at first, and now it's at 6.5 or something. Reviews mean exactly dick, especially at this point.

Into Darkness was anything but fun to me, and I've yet to see a strong indication of fun from the new one.

Having read/seen reviews and seen most of the trailers/tv spots, I can say that, as of now, this is in-fact looking more like a huge budget, modernized version of a silly TOS episode. Which is brilliant for the people who worship the original series. If that's the case, I'm sure I'll enjoy it but may not love it. Especially since I am more of a fan of TNG and onward, rather than the fun romp in space of the TOS, and I doubt we're getting a City on the Edge of Forever level of depth or brilliance in the new movie. I'm hoping for a fun classic-Star Trek feel, which isn't what I'd prefer, but I'd be satisfied with it. Of course mostly I want tight writing. I know everyone loved ST09, but I really didn't like that movie, mostly because the writing and plot holes were just pretty awful. So you give me a fun ST classic feeling romp with tight righting and I'll be cool.

I know Pegg is all about plot & characters. I don't know about Doug Jung but hearing them talk and all the themes of the film etc etc...

And how they had to axe stuff from the script because it was backstory for ancillary characters that would have made the film 4 hours long.

I think it's going to be a lot more plot based than the last two.

Yea, sadly the movie comes out when I am getting two teeth extracted, so it might be a week or so till I can see it and focus on it.

God dammit.

Ugh that reminds me of when I saw Interstellar - my sinuses were inflamed and pushing on my roots.

It was not fun and hampered my enjoyment of that movie.



Beyond comes out on Friday but i'm not seeing it til Tuesday because I wanted to wait til I could see it in the big cinema 45 mins away rather than in my tiny local cinema and when I saw the

Force Awakens there - some drunk pricks were shouting and smashing bottles.

I want a big meal beforehand and barely drink any liquid.

I had to pee twice during ID4:R. Not that I missed much but still it's annoying.
