Saw the teaser trailer for Star Trek into Darkness, all I can say is awesome

The teaser is...................good. It's very good.

But it does shift us back right around to Khan if you ask me. But in a totally different way.

It depends. I am a sucker for classical or indie movies about simple issues but I couldn't care less about soap opera level "emotional substance" because it lacks subtlety and realism, it is exaggerated and fake.

And I wasn't thinking of the Spock/Uhura thing. That doesn't count.

It was well-handled, but contributed little. As a part of Spock's side of the story, it does contribute a little; and Spock's side of the story was the good bit.

Kirk did not mature, he learned that one must always cheat.

Sure, it didn't contribute anything to the plot but why should it have to?
Little in life contributes to what you might consider the plot of your life, most of it is random and arbitrary and can not even be narrativized and woven into a story in hindsight.

Back to the relationship, to me it felt mature and realistic.

Now it looks as if you are defending the film's substance. I like it.

Good points, you are right.

Good policy.
