I have to agree: seeing a White-British Khan was highly unexpected, especially considering how iconic this villain is in the Star Trek franchise. Honestly- I thought the role reversal death scene was spine chilling because of the attempted homage. However the "Khan" scream by Spock and reviving Kirk within moments was ridiculously paced and unwanted. I totally agree with you on Khan's magical healing blood- VERY cheap plot device.

What was your opinion on the appearances of the Klingons? I thought they looked pretty bad ass. But I could understand why a lot of fans were disappointed with their portrayal.

Keep up the awesome reviews Adam! I was looking forward to seeing your Into Darkness film review ever since the movie was announced for national release!


I'll be honest, I actually had NO issue with the Klingons or The Enterprise going to the Klingon homeworld. None of that bothered me. What did bother me, however, was how short lived their presence was. You could of set that scene on any other alien planet and it wouldn't have mattered

Two questions. One, how was the music? Two: does Khan die?

Speaking of STAR TREK NEMESIS, is there any chance you can review it as part of Request of the Week?

I just wanted to say that from seeing the trailers of Iron Man 3, what I was expecting is that Tony Stark goes to China with Pepper and Rhodey for vacation and occasionally saves the world as Iron Man along with War Machine. The Mandarin doesn't like Stark's alter-ego and wants Iron Man to be destroyed so Tony sends him a message on the phone. Seeing this The Mandarin sends in terrorists and blows up his penthouse in Malibu, California after his vacation is over. Seeing the results, Tony vows revenge and builds an army of suits so we would have a climax of the army of suits, Pepper, Iron Man and War Machine Vs. The Mandarin's athletic combat and his 10 rings. If they had used The Mandarin to his advantage, we would have got a dark, emotional, war-based storyline. As for the Extremis story arc, I suggest to have Aldrich Killian and Dr.Maya Hansen working for The Mandarin, not the other way around so that both Aldrich and Maya would get their backs on Tony and Pepper by creating the Extremis virus and making an army of Extremis soldiers also to fit in with the climatic battle. That's what I thought they were going to do and the idea would have sounded extremely epic but we got some other twist instead making one of the toughest Iron Man villains look like a joke which at first is funny, trust me but like you said, it does make me pissed and also unsatisfied.

Adam, I LOVE your ideas to change the movie. I admit the ending was rushed and Benicio del Toro would an ideal Khan, still liked Benedict through as a villain.
