I'm Brian! And so is my wife...

Re: Star Trek Beyond

...oh yeah, a couple more things. I too enjoyed seeing Spock taking the picture of the original cast out of Spock-prime's memento box that he had been given. Nice touch, I thought. And, shortly thereafter, seeing the Enterprise-A quickly being built, followed by the "Space, the final frontier..." speech for the close. (And it did occur to me: Star Trek III Search for Spock saw the destruction of the original Enterprise; couldn't help but notice that this third installment of the Abrams/Lin Star Trek also saw her destruction).

Re: Star Trek Beyond

Very interesting. Seems many here agree that this was probably the best of the three Abrams/Lin ST movies. Well, I just watched it with the kids this afternoon at the matinee. I have to say, I am in complete agreement. Definitely better than ST 2009 and Into Darkness, especially the latter. It was much better than I had anticipated. The pace felt different (it slowed down when it needed to I think), and it seemed to have better character development (well, at least with Spock, Bones, and to a lesser extend Kirk). Definitely had a different feel for me. I agree with Jammer, though, that it might've been nice to have the revelation that Krall was Captain Edison a lot sooner. Krall just wasn't that interesting a villain UNTIL that revelation, which, as Jammer notes, came too late in the movie.

Overall, I would've given it 3 out of 4 stars, compared to 2/4 for STID and 2.5/4 for ST 2009.

Thanks for the review Jammer!
