Or, you know, into Star Trek: Into Whiteness.

I was entertained, but this isn't a great movie. It still feels like a lot of shout-outs pasted together with CGI and I didn't grow up on original Trek so while I appreciate a good remake, I also want it to have a point. Also people keep telling me original Trek was about pushing boundaries and that it was clever... I'm not seeing it here people.

I'm not all that invested in the trifecta of white, male lead actors playing Kirk, Spock and Bones. I'm keen on Uhura and Carol and would like to see more of them.
