So I will learn to live with it. Because I can live with it. I can live with it.





Did anyone earnestly enjoy Into Darkness? I havenít seen it since release, but I canít remember anything particularly noteworthy about it. Looking back, it seemed to be the worst parts of J. Jabramsí tendency to take existing material, shift around parts, and then zig where the original zagged (Kirk dies instead of Spock [but he lives anyway!], Khan is good instead of bad, etc.).

Iíve barely seen people discuss it since it came out, Iíve read plenty of discourse about the 09, about Beyond, about the TNG movies and the TOS movies, but ID is the one that seems to have sank like a dead mobster in the open waters of collective consciousness.

That strikes me as a quirky part of the TNG movies vs the TOS movies. By the time the TNG movies were being made, they already had a handful of TV movies (i.e. 2 parters) with a variety of wacky plots.

Youíve got the one where Picard is on a commando mission and gets captured, the one where Picard is on an undercover Indiana Jones mission and gets captured, the one where theyíre just chilling with Mark Twain for a while, the one with the Klingon civil war, the one with the Romulan near-reunification, the one with Borg individualism or whatever(Iíll be honest, itís been a long, long time since Iíve seen descent).

Theyíve wrapped up 7 seasons of a show, AND 10 feature length episodes, AND an ending to the series that wraps up everything exactly the way you want. Then itís time to make the movies, starting with another ending to the show (Generations), and then proceeding through unused episode scripts.

Iíve always loved TMP. Itís the kind of slow burn boring sci fi that I love.

Itís such an odd collection of ideas and slow atmospheric scenes. I canít say itís not slow, and I canít say itís for everyone, but thereís so many odd parts that are unique to the movie that I canít help but enjoy it.

Really love that random person being horrifically mutilated by the transporter, and thatís not even part of any of the conflict ó thatís just a random OSHA incident at the start of the movie.

Edit: take this, page 2!

Seeing this on the big screen back in the day must have been so mindblowing.

I think TMP, and to some extent WOK, are the two that best capture that ďholy poo poo, theyíre in a movieĒ feeling. Going from a cheap-ish 60s network show to a very expensive capital-m movie.
