Star Trek – Into Darkness
With the release of “Star Trek – Into Darkness”, I think it’s very safe to say that J.J. Abrams has very successfully rebooted the franchise. I have been a fan since I was a kid with the original Star Trek series, and I was very ready to let the Star Trek universe die. I mean, let’s be honest…if we’re being VERY honest, five of the ten (non J.J. Abrams) films sucked about as much as movies can suck, and while we who loved being in the universe would watch no matter what, that gum had lost all its flavor.
Now, though, it feels like it has a new lease on life. All the characters have been given a little more for an audience to work with, and tired old Star Trek tropes are being twisted and used to great effect.
