JJ Abrams & Company Did it Again
And when I say: "did it again", I mean hit it out of the park. No spoilers here, but this 2nd movie is a giant leap for this new rebooted series. I'll just say that everybody in the cast & crew does a great job, & many of the regulars get more to do. For geek & fans, there are all kinds of Easter eggs, quotes, & "harmonic resonances" with the classic Star Trek series & even a few references to other science-fiction & genre literature/media. Keep an eye out. You'll know it when you see it. I'm a fan of the original series (grew up in the 60s watching it), and I thought this did justice to the original and then some. Paid tribute, but still had fun. Great fight scenes. Especially the last one. 2 go in...well, see for yourself. A great musical score.Fandango asks, "did you laugh, cry, etc.". Well, I laughed, I cried, I had a great time. Exciting, emotional, and still makes you think as well as feel . I was not bored for a second. A roller coaster in more ways than one.
