Star Trek Into Darkness
A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
Funnier than most theatrical-release comedies -- and yep, that includes The Simpsons Movie.
| Original Score: 4/5
More sex jokes, cartoon carnage than the TV show.
| Original Score: 3/5
A terrific present for series fans, and a giddy bit of sci-fi spoofery that even newcomers can enjoy.
a giant 90-minute in-joke with the fans
The first of four full-length direct-to-DVD movies . . .
a lovely gift to deprived Futurama fans
The movie employs all of the hallmarks that has made the show such a cult favorite. Amidst this, the movie retains its keenness of observation and sense of the profound.
| Original Score: 8/10
A return to form for the sci-fi comedy, with perhaps a bit more confidence. The story is a brilliant time travel adventure, that makes way more sense than, say, Southland Tales, and rewards longtime fans.
