Star Trek; Into Darkness Movie Review

I have to admit, I am getting behind on my movie watching, but I make you this promise; I will not write a review for a movie that I have not personally watched.  That would be a lie.  That being said, here is what I saw last:

Star Trek; Into Darkness  3D

Great movie, it had me guessing the whole time.  Just when you thought the movie was over, there will be a twist.  Spock even gets to show off some of his action moves that were a little lacking in the first movie.  In my opinion, this installment is better than the first.  I saw the first one at a drive in theater in 2D... Seeing this one is 3D in a theater was awesome.  Seeing the phasers, shrapnel, and warp speed beams go by was just too cool for school.  The only thing that gets me is that I don't know all of the terminology since I am not a true Trekkie, so when they talk about rectors and proton torpedoes, I am a little lost.  But other than that, I was able to keep up! [SPOILER]  The budding friendship between Spock and Kirk starts to really develop and at the end I even started to get a ball in my stomach when Kirk dies!

Iron Man 3 review

Okay...lots of hype for the latest installment of the Iron Man franchise. It doesn't disappoint either! You know I had to see it in 3D! I was impressed with all of the twists and turns, and Tony proves that he can kick ass without the Iron Man suit! Excited that Pepper gets to wear the suit. Funny twist with the Mandarin too! Lots of special effects! Good storyline too! Love all of the different suits, wished they would have talked about them a bit. You also get to see a hulk-like suit!
I am definitely adding this to my collection when it comes out!

Favorite quote of the movie?
I am, and will always be Iron Man!

I also watched DJango Unchained.

If you are easily embarrassed by harsh language, please don't watch.  If that doesn't bother you, please see this movie.  Tarantino does a splendid job of creating emotion for a slave (FOXX) while utilizing some amazing actors (Jackson, DiCaprio) and merging fiction with history.  While seeing Jamie Foxx hanging upside down buck naked is not my definition of a good time, some people will enjoy it.  The way that people meet their end in this movie is extremely violent (dogs ripping apart slave)  Anyway, my opinion of this movie overall is good, you need to make up your own opinion and let me know on Twitter at @TeeJayToday.
