Shwood good review of ST:ID on #framerate But, where's the line between ""homage"" and ""copying""? Wife and I disagreed on this.
Hi Brian, I've been a fan of the Star Trek's set in the 24th Century since I was a kid. I have never liked TOS and as such I've never seen Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, I have no nostalgia for Kirk era Star Trek. I did however like the first J.J. Abrams Star Trek, so after seeing Into Darkness last week and then seeing your little challenge in last weeks Spoiler Zone I went and bought the Blu-ray of Wrath of Khan. After watching it last night I really feel that Into Darkness is the better of the two movies.
It was nice to see where many of the concepts from the two Abrams films come from like the Kobayashi Maru and the Centaurian Slug, but I feel Wrath of Khan takes it's self to seriously when really it is just a campy 80's movie based on a campy 60's TV show. Into Darkness on the other hand I feel broke up the tension with the silliness giving a chance for the audience to relax and catch their breath.
Netflix still has its expiration dates on your Queue at the Netflix website, they just don't push those dates out to the API. I just had to tell you all that you didn't lose the information, thanks love the show.
