Re: TOS S1: The Man Trap

Could you also review the pilot episode that preceded this? 'The Cage'. The pre Shatner debut episode with Jeffrey Hunter in. I don't particularly rate it but I'd be interested as to your overall review thoughts.

Re: Star Trek Beyond

First and foremost, I'm a huge star trek fan and of science fiction overall. I saw this film when it came out on the cinema last summer. I've watched it several times since then on DVD and still am of the opinion that it's generally underwhelming and rather pedestrian. I recall getting fidgety when I first saw it. I think it's mostly the unfocused and episodic feel to the pacing. The humour between kirk, Spock, and McCoy is welcome and overall funny with the 'family crew' implications for such a long voyage. I felt it isn't as exciting or cerebral as into darkness, which I'd say is the best of the current 'new treks'. As an aside, I thought idris Elba's villain of the piece character was generally irrelevant and as clich├ęd as it was unremarkable. An interesting enough twist at the end but not very good compared to the recent star wars films; particularly rogue one.
