***SPOILER for new movie***

So, I went into the movie completely cold.  I had not read or watched anything about the movie as I wanted to be a completely blank sheet going in and have these opinion.

It was great entertainment-wise,  and all that, but in many ways it just felt forced.  They forced the Jim/Spock relationship so that at the end Spock was moved to a great show of emotion, which for the Prime universe would have been totally appropriate.  But I felt it was too much in too short a time for that kind of reaction.  I did like how they handled Kahn and could totally believe the events surrounding his character.  I even could accept Bones having the miracle cure since they so kindly showed him tinkering with it in a previous scene. And you know, Bones in any reality is just that brilliant and would have a cure for death readily available.  Still, it all just felt too pat and forced.  I know, I know, these relationships took three seasons to develop in Prime reality and they only had two hours, so I'll give them that... if they take the new cast in an entirely new direction.

Kahn's back in the cryo-freeze, there is no planet Genesis and no Spock's body to go in search of.  The probe from The Voyage Home may still visit Earth in search of humpback whales, but I'm hoping they give us something completely new with the next movie.  And they've maneuvered themselves to do just that.  I mean, I did enjoy this universe's take on Kahn but I'm really hoping for some new seeking out of new life and civilizations and movie plots.

I do highly recommend seeing the movie in 3D.  Fantastic special effects as expected.  And I will see it again in the theaters, because movies of this type deserve to be seen and heard with all the best technology has to offer.
