Star Trek Into Darkness

I am not a Trekkie/Trekker/Klingon. I have only a passing knowledge of the Star Trek universe, that of a few episodes of The Next Generation (my dad used to watch it when I was a kid) and the 2009 Star Trek reboot. While I will go along with fantasy and sci-fi elements with glee, I am not a sci-fi fan. I’ve never read the genre.

But I really, really, really wanted to see Star Trek Into Darkness. Which a friend and I did. And yes, our reasons were mostly shallow.

Case in point:


I love BBC’s Sherlock. Love it. Cannot wait for the upcoming third season. I think Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant in it. I love the way the intricate plots come together with brilliant dialogue.

I enjoyed the overall theme of coming together as a crew and family and Kirk’s arc of becoming worthy of his title of captain. Plus, there was tons of actions (it looked like a video game at times) and nice comedic moments.

This blog needed some eye candy 😉

  1. I'm not a fan either. I didn't see the last movie and I've only seen a few episodes of Next Generation like a long long time ago, but I actually want to see this one. It looks really interesting. I swear I've never seen either one of this guys in my life. But I looked them up and turns out I have seen them! Lol!
