Re: “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

I guess it is being reviewed now because of the new, and great, Star Trek into Darkness was released. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was the second movie in the original Star Trek movie run. Darkness is the second movie in the Star Trek Reboot back in 2009. So I guess it makes sense to review to older number 2 now because it might strike an interest to compare it to the current number 2. In fact, if you didn't see Star Trek back in 2009, you missed a great movie for even a non-Trek fan. Maybe you should get a hold of it and watch it before you see Star Trek Into Darkness. You may want to see Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan as well.

Re: “Star Trek Into Darkness

I am not saying you have to enjoy a film or dislike a film based on the general public opinion. Why spoil key elements of the movie for people who have not seen. I viewed the movie before reading this review, but I feel sorry for the fan, or even the casual movie goer, who read this and found out certain parts that they would have appreciated seeing them unfold for themselves. It's like finding out Darth Vader is Luke's Skywalker's father in 1980 before the movie The Empire Strikes Back actually came out. A friend told me who saw it just a few hours before I did. It hurt. At the very least, youvcould have wrote in big letters SPOILER ALERT! J,R. Jones, I really hope that you write a comment based on our comments in this section to explain yourself. I don't understand how someone getting paid to review this movie ruin it for so many people.
