Reasons why the Water Park 'verse and Star Trek Into Darkness are completely 100% not compatible. Spoilers are back here. )

Things Dommi Liked about the Film: the acting and visuals. The costumes were pretty neat too, but IDK how I feel about them being in all gray all the time. Like, I dunno, I appreciate that they all had multiple uniforms for multiple purposes because that's how it actually works in the military, but I don't feel like what they came up with actually fits too well with Trek. My OTP is alive and going strong. My secondary ship is also alive and going strong. There was a throwaway line about Chekov "shadowing Scotty" that made me happy from a Scokov perspective.

Things Dommi Did Not Like About the Film: spoilers and a minirant )

There are things to love about this movie, but the literal only reason why it's remotely fun to watch is because of the cast. It's not the writing, and it's not the directing. I liked the character interactions, so I can appreciate it on that level, but I'm not in love with it like I was 09. It's not nearly as good, which is weird because with a trilogy, isn't usually the second film the best?

But we'll see. I'm assuming we'll get another one in 2016 for the 50th Anniversary of Trek. Hopefully we'll get new writers and a director who actually gives a damn this time.
