Excerpt: Hollywood has a history of redefining things in strange and odd ways. Take Star Trek Into Darkness for example. The role reversals they did will make your head spin. This movie makes Captain Kirk look weak. He dies to save the crew instead of Spock. Spock is then the one who goes after Khan.
Excerpt: Hot on the heels of Iron Man 3 , the summer’s second blockbuster precedes it to home video by a week. But in its quest to reach the final box office frontier, Star Trek Into Darkness attempted to also go where no Trek had gone before; into the third dimension.
Conclusion: Well-made and engrossing, Star Trek Into Darkness is the rare sequel that stands strongly on its own. It requires no love for the franchise or even for the previous film to thoroughly enjoy.

Excerpt: Being a huge Star Wars fan all my life, who has more times than I care to admit called Star Trek boring, dull and lifeless with the exception of The Next Generation episodes Ashley Judd breathes life and beauty into, I was astonished by how much fun I had with J.J.
Conclusion: The Blu-ray release of 'Star Trek into Darkness' is disappointing on many levels. The movie itself is a big misstep from director J.J. Abrams, and Paramount's decision to divide the bonus features up among several retailers is extremely unfriendly to consumers.
