Watching bad movies so you don’t have to.
This was terrible.
I’m not the best placed person to review Star Trek , Star Wars, or Star movies of any kind. I have either fallen asleep or switched to another movie within the first 30 minutes. Unfortunately this was so loud I couldn’t fall asleep and I had a lot of popcorn to finish (first world problems).
JJ Abrams’ latest instalment has Captain Kirk and his crew running after baddie John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), aggravating the Cling-ons in the process by blowing things up on their planet. A lot of other things happen, a lot of moving parts, and all of this I felt tried to cover up for a complete lack of meaningful character interaction. Cumberbatch does a decent job of being the British bad guy, but I kept getting distracted by scenes like this:
Except you’re not watching the Avengers. You’re watching Star Trek.
In other news, that passport I talked about earlier? I got it. Now I can boldly go where billions of others have gone before, without a visa!
