You must have a really short attention span.

It also is perhaps the best written that those characters have ever been. It is a film filled with quotable lines. I could go on but the thread is about STID. We shall see if this film will garner the following WOK has.
This. All of this.

Kahn is just so 'meh' at this point. I mean to even sell him as menacing they literally had to bring in a character from the old franchise to come on screen and tell the audience that he's menacing. Ugh.
Why was Khan 'meh?' Star Trek isn't defined by its villains, but Khan is an exception. Its not as if they went out of their way to bring Gul Dukat or Kruge back. The TV series were more about exploration and depicting a better future on Earth, while the films were generally more action oriented. So once again... why not bring Khan, the greatest Star Trek villain, back into this timeline?
