We don't have a specific movie forum, but I wanted to post about Star Trek Into Darkness. As soon as anybody else has seen it and the various twists and turns that Abrams has thrown in, let's talk.

I thought the acting was great. Cumberbatch was a much better villain than Bana could hope to be. Now, for some particulars. This is gonna get spoilery:

To summarize: it had its moments, and its problems. Not worse than the original, but not particularly better, either.

I've said before, and I will say again, JJ Abrams doesn't let reality get in the way of telling a fun story. Ergo, he and his team should be perfect for telling the next story in the Star Wars saga.

Star Wars' "only hope" is the fact that they almost never go into the science behind everything, so Abrams will have less opportunity to screw up that aspect of the movie. I'm in no way optimistic about his version of SW.

As long as Locke doesn't show up with a button for Luke to push every 108 minutes or else Sydney Bristow will cut Felicity's hair, I'll be good with it. Lemme put it this way: He can't do a worse job than Lucas has.

That said, if he wants to give Terry Quinn a role, I'm all for it. Great, now I'm going to have to photoshop him into an Imperial uniform...

I cannot fault your logic or the math with which you proved it.

Star Trek Continues is the newest web series based on TOS. Up 'til now they've only done a few shorts, but they now have their first full length episode:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G-ziTBAkbQ

The character at the beginning is played by Doug Drexler, who designed the NX-01 among other things. Sulu is played by Grant Imahara ("Mythbusters",) Scotty is played by James Doohan's son, and in this episode a TOS actor reprises his role.

The only negative thing I'll say is that no one can claim that the actor playing McCoy is trying too hard to sound like Deforest Kelly.
