Hubby & I took a much-needed date night…errr date morning this weekend to go see Star Trek Beyond, and it didn’t disappoint! Thankfully it gets the franchise back on track where fans can see many more future installments. The plot felt familiar, like it could have been from a previous series, and definitely kept your attention with all the action and beautiful characters. I did feel lost several times when the dizzying special effects took the spotlight and it was hard to follow (or hear) the actors, especially during any of the darker lit scenes. In full disclosure though, it might have been better in 3D, but since 3D just gives me a headache and still looks blurry even with the glasses, we just watch the regular versions.
Was it just me or did it seem like the life-prolonging “machine” was glossed over on details? They might as well have had the evil queen from “Snow White and the Huntsman” in the back.
And as you can tell from my review title, the song Sabotage by the Beastie Boys once again makes an appearance as part of Jaylah’s “beats and shouting” music collection. And who doesn’t love the Beastie Boys?
