Watching ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ For the First Time In Seven Years

As you all know, I am a Star Wars fan, but that doesn’t mean I don’t watch an occasional episode of my favorite Star Trek series: Star Trek: The Next Generation or a Star Trek movie every now and then. So yesterday, because I was bored and in need of a halfway decent movie to watch, my sister and I revisited a film we hadn’t seen since we watched it in in IMAX seven years ago, Star Trek: Into Darkness.

When I watched it all those years ago I was mostly underwhelmed. I remembered basically nothing about the movie and that was great because yesterday I enjoyed the absolute heck out of this film.

J.J Abrams may make a bad movie every now and then but when he gets it right he can create a film that is truly spectacular as he balances both humor and emotion to create quite an action-packed spectacle.

A Movie Ranking: Benedict Cumberbatch

My introduction to Benedict Cumberbatch was via Star Trek: Into Darkness. It took no more than a single teaser trailer for me to know that he was a serious actor who I was going to like in the long run. The following movies I have watched with him have only reaffirmed my first notion. So, with no further delay, here is his movie ranking.

10. Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch

I tried to watch this movie on Netflix. I only made it about fifteen minutes. And while Benedict Cumberbatch is a great voice actor he didn’t do that great of a job bringing life to the Grinch. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Benedict Cumberbatch

A Movie Ranking: Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana has become one of the most famous actresses in the world for her work in the science-fiction genre of cinema and she is easily one of my favorite actresses for her astounding work. So, here’s my ranking of all of the movies I’ve seen her in.

9. Star Trek: Beyond

Maybe it’s because I’m not a Star Trek fan. No, when I think back on it, this movie was pretty awful. The story was unengaging, I didn’t care about any of the characters, and even though I watched it all the way through I found myself very disinterested by the end.
