Star Trek 2 - The Wrath Of Khan (1982)

The Star Trek movies do get better! Already with the second one the special effects are feeling a bit more authentic (especially those alien parasites). And maybe with the main adversary a human rather than a machine, the technological aspects don't feel so outdated either.

Gone are also the time-consuming arrivals and departures, and the suits floating around outside the windows, and many of the small details that stole attention in the last one. The hugs may still be awkward, as are the farewells, and the acting a bit corny, but I feel like I'm starting to get into the groove with this one. I can appreciate the adventure. It feels like it's intensified since last time too.

A few new characters are introduced, and along with them the recently re-adapted adversary Khan, here played by Ricardo Montalban. The script's reminiscent of the 'Star Trek - Into The Darkness' movie from 2013, though it shares a few plot elements with the original reinterpretation from 2009 too.

The recurrent elements feel welcome, and give me a link to the Star Trek I know. I imagine it's the other way around for those of you who started with these movies before the new. Either way, it's a welcome link, and the fact that the movies live on in new form means the ideas aren't outdated either. They still work, even if appearances were pretty different back then.

If you have time to spare, the classics are worth a watch!

 rated 3/5: not bad
