    There’s no colon in the Star Trek movie title; it’s one continuous phrase.

    I am tired of hearing the old “you don’t like the new star trek because its just not the old trek.” based arguments.  Star Trek Into Darkness is cold, calculated money making  shite.  It drips with crass moviemaking.  I applaud anybody who “Loves” this movie…but you love a doll.  What all the people you chide for complaining about the movie feel is the uncomfortability with it’s articifice.   It is the filmic version of the the uncanny valley.  It looks like it’s alive…it looks like it cares…but it doesn’t.  I went into the theater wanting to love the hell out of it…I have a history with Trek…this movie is a sad part of that history.

      After seeing it, my first thought was that it had been created by algorithm. An algorithm designed to maximize predictability.

    My major problem with Star Trek is that it needs to pick a tone and stick with it.  There is obviously a humorous undertone to these new Star Trek Movies that wasn’t there in the past movies.  I enjoyed the film (I wasn’t expecting much) up to the point that the big bad was revealed to be Khan, I mean, give me a break, this is just plane sloppy script writing.  I don’t mind a wink and a nod to the original series, but to lift an entire part from one of the original movies, it is horrible.

    All of the characters are cartoon characters just aping the tropes of the original show.  Somebody need to write an actual script that has some life in it.  Take a humorous slant on  Star Trek.  I love Hyperdrive, this type of SciFi can work, this film is just is not cutting it.
