INTO DARKNESS is not only the best of aaallllllllll the Star Trek movies, it is one of the best action movies in years. GO SEE IT! I'll be seeing it again if I get the chance. I'll leave it at that but for one more thing:
INTO DARKNESS breaks almost all movie rules:
- Sequels are not as good as the 1st.
- Reboot/Remakes are not as good as the original.
- Sequels which are reboots/remakes suck!
- Remakes of great movies are never as good as the original.
- Remakes of great movies which are also reboots are never as good as the original.
I had forgotten/didn't know the main plot for INTO DARKNESS so I'll not reveal it here but it took until 40% through that I realized what I was seeing. When the action stopped the plot moved forward and the interaction among the characters was just as entertaining.

PIC A DAY: DAY 18 - AT THE MOVIES
My own private showing.
I don't like 3D movies and avoid them when I can. My non-3D showing was next to the 3D showing and I guess everyone but me went there. I was along until one couple walked in during the last preview!
I participated in the PIC A DAY IN MAY CHALLENGE last year when Jim started it and I'll try to do it this year, as Kelly has taken the lead this year (who will lead in 2014?) Photos taken mostly with my iPhone 4s but some will be with my iPad Mini.
