I saw Star Trek Beyond today and you know what? It wasn't that bad. I certainly enjoyed it more than Ghostbusters (not that Ghostbusters was really bad) and it was definitely much better than Star Trek Into Darkness. No re-hashing of old storylines here, thank you very much.

The theme of the movie certainly lives up to the spirit of exploration that's embedded in the heart of Star Trek, but it also slaps on some showy summer movie antics that made me roll my eyes. I will be so happy when the new Star Trek show premieres. The franchise needs to get back to telling smaller stories.

I say Star Trek Beyond is a solid B. Maybe it was rushed so it could be released for the 50th anniversary, but at least we got something to celebrate the franchise.
