jim kirk not being an annoying dudebro, no weird/sexist interpersonal relationships with “foxy” alien ladies
the horrified look on bones’ face when spock starts laughing out of delirium
the sequence where the enterprise is basically decapitated and dismembered and then set on fire is pretty spectacular (also when kirk and chekov are running around being badasses in the wreckage)
chekov being a motherfucking pimp, literally flirting with anyone and telling outrageous lies about russia
also chekov being an absolute sweetheart and getting everyone else into their escape pods before getting in himself
the sequence with the beastie boys playing in the background was actually super-cool and not cringe like guardians of the galaxy
sulu is a bad bitch. this is just a fact. super cool. super gay. very pilot.
uhura kicking ass, sacrificing her own safety, saving spock lmaooo
jaylah being super rad, unsexualised, intelligent af
thank the lord for simon pegg he did a great job integrating women without making it sexualised and unnecessary, integrating sulu’s homosexuality without making it this huge deal, making the film funny without making it cringe niiceeee
the photo of the old cast was a lovely touch. very well done.
chekov and sulu lowkey dancing to the beastie boys while flying a motherfucking starship
i’m just really happy that chekov got so much more airtime, he was a central character with a lot to do and anton did a marvellous job
the dedications to leonard nimoy and anton at the end
“to absent friends” — did the camera linger on anton? idk?
it was just a really well balanced film with good action, lovely set design, comedy, tragedy etc and i think it was the best of all the three films so far
i miss you a lot anton, thank you for a lovely performance.
