    I agree that he didn't capture the original Chekov as well as he captured that certain charm the character had while still making the character his own. I really is too bad to loose a young talent.

    I'm not certain about the movie. I'm going to wait for it to release outside of theaters. It hasn't done much to sell me on buying a ticket. Maybe the reviews after it's out will change my mind.

    The latest trailer, complete with Rihanna song (alas, despite the name it's not a Peter Gabriel cover):

    Well that refueled my hope for this movie. It's a trillion times better than the first trailer and makes the movie look decent.

    I also quite liked the Rhianna song! And she does not​ make the kind of music I like. So that was a pleasant surprise.

    Has anyone seen it yet? Thoughts? I can't go see it this weekend because my niece will be over so I have to wait.

    I thought it was enjoyable. I have some issues which I may get into sometime, mostly with the writing surrounding the main conflict. It's worth seeing though.

    I'm gonna see it soon, hopefully this weekend. I'm tempering my expectations, but I'm hoping to enjoy it!

    Simon Pegg isn't a brilliant writer, but he is a good writer who genuinely cares about his material, and that counts for a lot to me.

    It was very good. Probably my favourite of the reboot movies.

    It's pretty good, as usual they're strong with the characterisations and it moves along at a fair old clip. I saw the whole revelation towards the end coming a mile off though.

    Saw it and liked it a lot. The twist actually shocked me quite a bit, haha.

    I agree with Captain Pike, it was a good film and a good twist!

    Dunno if it was my cinema or the film itself but it was very hard to follow at times because everything seemed so dark. Obviously not a problem on the Enterprise because all the walls are brighter than the sun in there, but once caves entered the equation the entire film was lots of little shadows running around one big shadow.

    Saw it, loved it. Had a blast right through. The quiet character-driven moments really shone, and the action set-pieces were well-crafted and directed. Excellent dialogue and good use of both new and existing characters. The alien environments actually felt like 'strange new worlds' for a change, which was great, and the Yorktown base design was a marvel. Justin Lin's directing suited the material well.

    Good callbacks to the better parts of Enterprise, and I liked the emphasis on Federation history and culture.

    I feel that a lot of material was left on the cutting-room floor, especially in relation to the villain's army and operations, but maybe we'll see more of that in home media releases.

    Not gonna lie: I very nearly choked up when a main character found a certain photograph in a scene near the end.

    Short version: this film was better than I expected, and I'm well pleased.

    Also, Jaylah was awesome. I know we're less likely to see her in future instalments, but she stole a great many scenes in this one.

    The tributes to Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin were low-key, but respectful and touching.
