…and could not have loved it more. Easily my fave movie of 2016 and the best Trek since Wrath of Kahn.
Into Darkness was very uneven, but I loved the first movie in the reboot and even then I think this might have it beat. the character stuff is great and just so fun. It’s that vibe the Marvel movies had around 2008-2012 where you’re just in there for a bloody good time. I really adored it. The Spock/ Bones stuff was beautiful.
Honestly, go see this. This has been an incredibly poor year for big cinema, but this, Jungle Book and Zootropolis have kept me going. All three featuring Idris Elba, interestingly.
