Star Trek - Beyond (2016)
- Justin Lin's overall direction is great however his actual camera flow is mixed, at times how it floats above & around stuff can be beautiful and at other times border on making me dizzy which is a rarity for me.
- Jaylah's fight with Manas in particular needed less shaky cam. (still managed to be a good fight scene despite the camera)
- Idris Elba's Krall makes for a pretty damn good villain with a solid emotional motive. That said he really needed more scenes maybe even some full on flashbacks to the death of his Crew.
- Concept of him being a life force vampire is cool and made all the more unique in that he must take on the physical features of which ever species he drains.
- Sofia Boutella's Jaylah is quite distinctive, lovely & badass.
- Spock & Bones get some good scenes together, which is all the more appreciated as Bones was notably underused in Into Darkness.
- They handle Leonard Nimoy's death in a very respectful & touching manner towards the end of the film.
- Yes destroying the Enterprise is getting tiresome but it is handled magnificently here.
- The reuse of "sabatoge" song is unneeded but not nearly as cringy as I had been warned.
- Make up for various alien characters look good to great.

Star Trek Discovery has been delayed, and a number of news heads, have said it may be in trouble.

^ That writeup seems a lot more positive than the link.

The distribution deal for Discovery is beyond retarded.

Why should Americans have to pay an extra fee to watch it via CBS All Access when 188 other countries get it within 24 hours via Netflix?

I already subscribe to Netflix. Why should I have to pay an additional $5.99 per month for just ONE show?
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Because CBS has the delusion that they can become the next Netflix rather than focusing on content creation.

Goddamn right. All Disco is is a launch show for this new streaming service.

It's cynical as fuck, but what if that were the entire reason for Disco to exist in the first place? You get a franchise with a huge built-in audience that hasn't had a proper TV series in over a decade, but whose brand has become popular again due to new feature films and use it to market your new streaming platform.
