When rebooting a series, is it possible to be too faithful to the originals? Yes. Yes, it is. Star Trek gave them a clean slate, but they’re using it to trace.
Then there’s the whole matter of the Deus Ex Spock-ina…
Everyone was less of a caricature of the original cast this time around. They all brought their own personal touches to the characters.
I noticed the lens flares a lot more with this one, mainly because I knew to look for them. They don’t bother me, though.
This one had nothing that I saw. Then again, I’ve been wrong on two of the two new movies I’ve seen this month, so perhaps I’m wrong here, too.
I avoided trailers and advanced footage as best I could. Based on what little I did encounter, I thought going in that this was going to be “The Dark Knight Rises…in space!”, but happily that was not true.
