I am a total Trekkie. I have no shame about this. Some movies and series are better than others, fo' sho', but in general, I love it.
My favorite Star Trek movie series are the 2009-2016 reboots, with the alternate timeline. It's such a fun trio, and my favorite of the three is Star Trek Beyond (2016).
This is not the best Star Trek movie ever, and it's not even the best one of its series. I fully understand that this is a popcorn flick, with ridiculous music interludes and over the top action CGI scenes. Those aren't solely why I love it, but they don't hurt.
It's also the first one I saw in theaters.
The movie does a great job pairing off characters in scenes where you really get a chance to appreciate them. Bones and Spock; Scotty and Jaylah; Captain Kirk and Checkov; Uhura and Sulu: these aren't the usual buddies in the reboot series, and it feels like you get to know the characters as they get to know one another.
Scotty and Jaylah are an enjoyable duo to see on screen.
Also it's great to see a universe where Stringer Bell is free of the shackles of Avon Barksdale.
Perhaps the strangest thing about my own personal love of Star Trek is my own personal fear of space. I have no desire to go into space. If I think about the vastness of space too much, I feel anxiety and panic.
The final frontier can go to hell.
But there's one scene in the movie that totally reminds me of Joe, as he's kinda Vulcan.
