Star Trek: Into Darkness: IMAX 3D

So Ross and I finally saw Star Trek.  Ainsmar said it was worth seeing in IMAX 3D, so yesterday we got out of bed at a decent hour to be able to see it for matinee prices.  There were only 4 other people in the theater.  Nice.  I wish all the movies I went to felt like a private screening like that.  I liked the giant IMAX screen, and the 3D was good.  I can't remember the last time I saw a movie in 3D.  I just don't feel like it adds that much/is worth it.  Only a few scenes made me uncomfortable, and those scenes would have bothered me in 2D--I don't like fast panning scenes.

The casting in the new Star Trek movies is really spot on and the actors do such a great job.  This is the best movie I've seen in a while.  There weren't a whole bunch of times where I felt like I had to suspend my disbelief--just mainly the beginning scene with Spock in the volcano.

The one thing I noticed about this movie was the tears.  Lots of tears and tear-streaked faces.  What's up with that?  I think it is a bit out of character for James Tiberius Kirk to cry.  Teary-eyed maybe, but cry?

I'm not sure who my favorite character is, but I love Simon Pegg as Scotty.  And Benedict Cumberbatch?  Just saying his name makes me giggle.  He's a wonderful actor.

I had fun watching this movie, and I agree with Ainsmar that the IMAX 3D was worth it.

Are you sure you agree? I mean, it's okay if you do, but it is okay if you don't. haha
