Movie Review: Star Trek Beyond (2016) *Just Beyond Mediocre*

Chris Pine, Captain Kirk, Star Trek Beyond
Star Trek: Beyond is the 13th film to spin out of Gene Roddenberry’s original series, which began-hard to believe-over 50 years ago.  The film is a change of tone with a new writer in Simon Pegg (who also plays Scotty) and a new director in Fast & the Furious’ Justin Lin taking over for JJ Abrams.  The last installment, 2013’s Star Trek: Into Darkness, was deeply divisive, but Beyond came out in the back half of a deeply disappointing summer to fairly good reviews and did well enough that a fourth installment with Chris Pine & Zachary Quinto’s new crew is already scheduled.  Despite all that, this was the first Star Trek film I didn’t see in the theaters on opening weekend since Star Trek VI.  I didn’t see it in the theaters at all.  I never felt excited by anything I’d seen.  The first trailer, featuring the Beastie Boys “Sabotage” blaring over what looked nothing like Trek really put me off (though if I knew the song was going to be a major plot point I probably would still be putting off seeing the film).  Mild spoilers below.

Trailer Time: Snowden Trailer #2 (2016) *Hero or Traitor?*

There really aren’t many people who have a lukewarm opinion when it comes to Edward Snowden.  People either think he’s a courageous whistleblower for giving journalists millions of classified documents outlining domestic government spying, or people think he’s a traitor and should be executed for giving journalists millions of classified national security documents.  A movie about Snowden seems a perfect project for director Oliver Stone who has elicited a likewise polarizing response among film fans his entire career.

Trailer Time: Star Trek Beyond Trailer #4 (2016) *Things Could Get Messy*

Paramount has released the final trailer for Star Trek: Beyond (Star Trek XIII), which will open in theaters this weekend.  Each one of the four trailers has gotten progressively better, so combined with pretty positive reviews, I’m looking forward to spending some more time with Kirk & Co.  As a side not, JJ Abrams (no word on if he’s directing or continuing in a producer role) has confirmed Star Trek XIV will see the return of George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth).  That will be a bit of a trick since he died in the first few minutes of Abram’s reboot.  But, hey, it’s Star Trek.  What’s a little time travel when it’s family?  Star Trek: Beyond opens July 22, 2016.
