Oh my god. It was better than the first one. *no huge spoilers ahead*
This movie is beautiful. It's intense from the very first minute and I love that! So much happens. So many feels are exchanged. It's also funny! And not in a stupid way, it's character interaction funny! The plot is really good! It has lots of twists and turns! The characters aren't stupid! The characters learn stuff!!!! Every character has a badass moment!!!! It's so much fun!!!!!!!!!!!! Benedict Cumberbatch is psycho scary and awesome at the same time!
And it's very interesting to see how they've changed everything around. Those who have seen the first movie(but also those who haven't, I'm letting you know), know that the movies take place in an alternate universe that the writers put together kind of brilliantly, allowing them to use characters in different ways while still staying true to who they are. I'm not a huge Star Trek fan but I'm familiar with the 2nd original Star Trek movie and they make a lot of references to that movie in this one; they used moments from that movie in this one but in different ways and I'm so glad that I knew about them because when I recognized them, I'm like 'IT'S THE THING BUT NOW THIS CHARACTER'S DOING IT BUT IT MAKES SENSE AND IT'S SUCH A COOL CALL BACK.'
'Dammit Spock, I'm a Doctor, not a torpedo technician.' Fuckin' McCoy. That line was kind of shoehorned in there but it was awesome to hear it nonetheless.
Did you go see the movie? Avoid huge spoilers if you did! Did you like it? Dislike it? What do you think of the 2009 movie? Are you an original Star Trek fan? What do you think of this reimagining? How do you like it if you're not a Trekkie? How about that sexual tension between Kirk and Spock? XD
Also, I don't know if this is just me, but both movies start similarly with showing all the production logos and studio thing with this dun...dun.......dun music playing and it slowly gets louder and the duns get longer and it just keeps building and building and it makes me think it'll go on forever. I almost think that they made it ridiculously long in this one on purpose XD
