Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) 0 minutes ago via Rotten Tomatoes
It certainly works as a Star Trek movie, but then how could it miss? Seems re-writing past scripts is a legacy of the Next Generation. This is great, for sure, but highly derivative. I suppose since we are now going on the Five Year Mission, we can expect Baylock in the next movie..... c'mon Paramount.... give us a NEW classic!
Tony Stark does James Bond AND Austin Powers. Don't believe the hype, Iron Man 2 was a great film, but a different film. Iron Man 3 is great, too.... but in the sense that the armor takes more of a back seat to the movie star this time, and boy does it work! A true magic show for the audience performed by writers playing upon our collective social assumptions. This isn't the movie the commercials and trailers have led you to believe it will be. Downy is the consummate entertainer and you'll enjoy his work again, as I am sure you have before.
An excellent biopic that starts a bit slow, but picks up steam as characters drive the narrative and display the truth that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Lewis' Lincoln is a steady, soft spoken alpha male who knows when to stride gently and when to utilize the thunderbolt of his office. An intellectual, literary film for those who enjoy careful thought while viewing a movie.
