Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
Same Story Different Day
SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT Please do not read this review unless you have seen the movie or do not plan to see the movie. I do not want to ruin anyone's movie going experience.
I saw this movie in 3D and Imax I want to look at the movie with out the wrapping all the flashy stuff and exploding stuff and as many say the lens flair moments. This is a hard review for me to write I love Star Trek the TV shows and most of the movies but this second in the "reboots" just left me wondering.
First the Imax was great the 3D I can not comment on due to a vision problem that does not allow me to see 3D. Now on to a breakdown of the movie.
The movie opened with what I call the Raiders of the Lost Ark scene it was almost lifted right from raiders and at that time my worry set in was I going to see anything new or was what I call the George Lucas effect going to step in and sadly we got the Lucas effect.
The reboot the new time line was to give ST it's own legs the freedom to go where no other ST has gone before. And where do we find the story we are dropped right in to The Wrath of Kahhn Yes JJ did a great job hiding at least from me the fact that Kahhn was back. I stayed away from reading about the movie so I may have been one of few that was like oh he is Kahnn . So now we are going to rehash the story that we already know about. But wait there is more let's throw in a dash of ST Undiscovered country in to the mix and let's play a game of trading places with Spock and Kirk this time let's kill Kirk but at the same time let's give away how he is saved half way into the movie. This movie held nothing new nothing to boldly go where no man had gone before. We took the opening from one movie and the base story from to others. I really expected more a lot more from this second movie.
We have a completely new time line do you think we can get a completely new story???
A good movie to see
I liked the movie and enjoyed the story and the tech in the movie. The action scenes were well shot good. And Tom was good in the movie. But for me it was jut a movie. Not a collectible movie and it will be forgotten as soon as the big summer movies land. Think hard what movies from last year or the last few years live in your mind today (The Avengers, for me from last summer Star Trek reboot, Iron Man 1 and even Thor) But not remembered at least for me the last Batman, MI GP, Captain America This movie falls in to that group it was good just not remember-able.
Part of the movie that worked really well is the love story. The movie used a very different plot line but played it out a bit slow. By time the story developed you were not riding along you were ahead of the story. Most people knew what was going to be said before it was said on screen. The tech used in the movie was great from the bubble ship to the control tower and the drones. It is worth seeing but just not an OH WOW movie.
Final Destination 5 (2011)
This is one very fun ride
This will make you love all the FD films all over again. I saw this movie opening night and I am so very glad I did. They have stepped up the quality of the film and the creativity of the deaths. Not since FD2 have I enjoyed one of these films. If you read bad reviews do not trust them go see it for yourself and you will believe.
The acting was much better then number 4 not as good as number 2. Just when you thought you knew what was going to happen you are hit with a surprise and I was left saying wow. I saw the 2D version of the movie not really of big fan of 3D. The movie to me had good balance did not move to slow and the deaths were extremely creative and at times shocking.
