fo' shizzle, rifftrax

the one thing I will say about Star Trek Into Darkness before Monday....

...is that Benedict Cumberbatch totally fucking owned the movie. There's some good acting on display in this movie (in fact, the only really poor acting is from Anton Yelchin, but I blame that on the accent -- I used to think Walter Koenig was a bad actor until I saw him perform with his own voice, and he was much better), but Cumberbatch acts everybody off the screen. Just a tremendous performance. He does more with a stare than anyone else in the movie can do with dialogue -- and again, that's not to dis the excellent cast, but holy shit.

Anyhow, I'll have a more detailed review on Tor.com on Monday some time.
