Is “Star Trek Into Darkness” a Drone Allegory?
“Are you Starfleet or private security?” Lieutenant Commander Scott asks a man—a very big man—who is pointing a phaser at him. “You look like private security.” And “Star Trek Into Darkness” looks like an allegory about drones or civil liberties—or something. But in neither case are the questions posed answered: the big man with the gun is swept out of an airlock before we learn whether he will reveal the twenty-third-century name for Blackwater. (There will be spoilers in this post.) And by the time, close to the end, a falling spaceship slices into some tall, shining skyscrapers, causing the towers to collapse on themselves, the movie’s efforts to make a coherent point about counterterrorism have already done the same.
i don’t care what you say, the scene where khan flips out and attacks jim, carol, and admiral marcus is one of the most visually and emotionally intense scenes i’ve ever experienced
they can try to hide it but i’ll always find the booty
Minu’s finally seen the movie so I don’t mind drawing it now.

Hi my name is John Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way Harrison and I have long ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) with purple streaks and red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Amy Lee (AN: if u don’t know who she is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Gerard Way but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I’m also a witch, and I go to a magic school called STARFLEET in san fransico where I’m in the seventh year (I’m seventeen). I’m a goth (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black leather miniskirt, pink fishnets and black combat boots. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Starfleet. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of preps stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them. U think ur world iz safe —John Harrison’s monologue in Star Trek Into Darkness
