Beyond Star Trek Beyond August 6, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Mentioned Star Trek, the reboot franchise, recently. And I saw it this week. Better than I had expected. A real sense of the second and third films (that would be Wrath of Khan and Search for Spock) in tone – which is to say it felt like an expanded TV episode – glaring plot holes and all. Which given the often variable quality of the films is actually a good thing.
Meanwhile, it never ends. As noted on Slate.com, Paramount has already announced the fourth instalment in the series, and the return of Chris Hemsworth who had a sort of cameo plus in the first film as Kirk’s father. Hemsworth was actually pretty good in that role, though Kirk Jr has grown into his part across the three reboot films. Funny though how these narratives twist around each other.
