    According to a website, which exchanges unwanted goods for cash, on their list of things they received after Christmas was Star Trek: Beyond on DVD/Blu-Ray.

    Well, I think you still have to pay for it, second hand, but in the packaging Tongue Out

    I heard quite a few people liked it, not really interested in the JJ Timeline though, so I have avoided them.

    It's worth watching as a decent action film, but I wouldn't say that it's completely an action film, has some decent Trek in it. I'd say its worth watching. Wasn't too bad really.

    Best of the three. I thought it was honestly a really good film, managed to strike a nice enough balance between Trek and brainless action. The villain was boring and predictable though. I watched it in IMAX 3D too and it was really well done.

    Keep meaning to order the 4k version. Sad

    I agree. They tried hard to make it more "Trecky" than the other two and I actually really enjoyed it watching. Will definitely buy it, 'cause I did so with all the others - even Into Darkness. Confused

    It was better when I watched it the second time. When I walked out of he cinema I had a really weird feeling and thought that maybe that was one not to get on DVD. As I talked about it with friends my memory of it got worse and worse and the bad bits were quite exaggerated. After a second watch though, I enjoyed it much more (possibly because of the lack of small child being loud and kicking my seat).

    If this is the direction that they continue in, then we may be getting back to the good old trek formula which we all know and love! But if they do fail, it doesn't really matter because it's not in the prime universe. Wink

    I'm anxious to hear about a 4th film.

    But we need a good villain. Both Marvel and Star Trek suffer from forgettable villains.

    When I think of Star Trek villains I only ever think Khan and Gul Dukat.

    If they would have given Beyond's villain more background and motivation..I really feel he would have stuck out.
