Nat thought – no surprises here, except you may enjoy it more than you thought you would.
I’m not a Trekkie. But I have been forced to watch the odd episode of Generations. Somehow I didn’t die of boredom. In fact, I kind of enjoyed them. Don’t tell my Dad. But that hardly makes me an expert. So I won’t be able to discuss the bazillion references in this latest reboot by JJ Abrams that no doubt had long time fans pooping their pants in excitement. On the plus side, I won’t be able to moan about all the bits they left out or changed either.
You don’t need to be a Trekkie to enjoy Into Darkness. But if you’ve never seen anything Star Trek related before, you may want to check out Abrams’ Star Trek reboot from 2009 for a bit of back story. It’s not essential though. There’s nothing too confusing going on, except maybe why we have to see ‘Dr’ Alice Eve in her underwear.
Oh OK. I see. Marketing…
Actually, I don’t think they needed to resort to sex to get the twenty-something demographic to watch. I think that audience would already be drawn to it by the sight of all those block-coloured, tight tops.
But maybe they wouldn’t quite remember where they’d seen that before…
