OMG, I thought this forum was dead. Kept trying to post several times in the past couple months, and I would keep getting redirected to unintended target threads. Glad to see it was patched up.
My thoughts on Into Darkness:
Fun movie, but some of the revisits of old territory seemed a bit ridiculous. Not so much that it destroyed my overall enjoyment of the film. Great action and visuals....good emotional story...great villain.
I'd say this is as good as, but definitely not better than Trek 2009.
