Star Trek Beyond (2016)
« on: December 14, 2016, 07:29:57 am »

As you guys know, I'm not a big Star Trek fan. I'm not a hater, it's just that this franchise has never appealed to me for whatever reason. With that said, the Reboot and the movies that have followed have surprised me in a way I never thought. Star Trek Beyond is a solid flick. I thought the pacing was great. Fantastic set pieces and well-timed humor that actually had me laughing. Props to Simon Pegg on co-writing the script. I had no idea that he wrote this until the end credits rolled. Loved the idea of using contemporary music (Public Enemy's Fight The Power and Beastie Boys' Sabotage) to great effect in their respective scenes. At first it was very jarring, especially Fight The Power, because it came out of nowhere and was definitely out of place. But once you accept this, it makes Sabotage really work when it finally hits. Definitely worth a Rent. I'd definitely watch this again if I came across it channel surfing.
