Movie Review: Star Trek Beyond

This Star Trek movie was a bit of a slow starter. There was no Khan /Benedict Cumberbatch to play the foil which would be a tough act to follow and no JJ Abrams too. No cameo by Spock prime, though the only emotional high points were his reminisces. new Chekov is dead and that was a bummer. Bones and Karl Urban still rock! new Sulu is gay, sigh , we live in politically correct times, but what a cheesy way to honor George Takeai’s work

I wish they showed a bit of Kirk Prime someday. new Spock and new Kirk clearly seemed a bit tired. Oh no, third movie of a Franchise already they said. the soundtrack is oki doki and actually the Beastie Boy song was the worst bot of casting since George Clooney was cast as the Dark Knight.

The plot seemed nice enough and so were the graphics, but Idris Elba just did not seem menacing enough. See it if you are a fan boy, but rather pop in an older version of the TV series if you really needed Vitamin  Trek. I think it is time they brought in Picard eh amigo
