That said, let me tell you about the first movie in which I actually and genuinely enjoyed the 3D!

Star Trek franchise, as I mentioned above. I do love science fiction and well this casting speaks to me a lot more than the old one did. So when I saw the first one in the theater I knew I was hooked. It has been four long years, but for me personally it was totally worth the wait! I also liked that despite its success they didn't just throw together a stupid sequel that has no beginning, middle or end. This story - for me - was completely thought through, the characters were true to themselves and the little but very much needed comedic bits were hilarious! And even if we all knew that Cumberbatch's character would turn out to be Khan, the moment when he reveals his name still gave me chills!
Eric Bana and in this one, well... let me tell you that I would gladly volunteer to be killed by Khan if he was played by Cumberbatch! The first scene he had you only hear his voice and you start to shiver... I have been following his works since 2006 and I couldn't be happier that people started recognizing his talent thanks to Sherlock. I sure hope he gets more roles playing villains. I also enjoyed the fact that I just couldn't hate him. He was still so charismatic and although he clearly went nuts toward the end - I still wanted justice for him. It might also be because I hate the actor who played the Admiral... But I loved Kirk and I also cried when he died, but still... "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!"
Overall this was a wonderful movie. The music score is beautiful and it accompanies the story wonderfully - I'm going the buy it the minute I get home! So watch it, don't watch it? I'll let it be your choice. If you know the old series you will probably be more influenced but if you are like me - an outsider, lover of the first movie, then trust me you are going to enjoy it! Totally worth the theatre ticket price!
Until the next item on my list!
PS: It just turned out that Abrams cut a showering scene of Cumberbatch from the movie! What the hell?! Nobody cared about the women in underwear, yet we had two of those scenes! Good plan overall, now you made me want to buy the DVD even more, but seriously, why did you cut it? :(
