Star Trek Into Darkness

Quick review:

I just came back from seeing STID. Without spoiling: Benedict Cumberbatch is a great actor. He has the range to portray villains: nasty villains, noble villains, tragic villains. He could be Sherlock Holmes, the Doctor, Moriarity, the Master, or Richard III. But he’s not the villain for this film.

That, plus plot holes you could fly a starship through, and physics that suits the needs of the moment. I’ve been a Star Trek fan since 1965, and there was too much fan service even for me.

So only two photon torpedoes at best, and that’s as a simple disconnect-brain action flick. This is not Star Trek.
