I think the 2009 film was the bigger, more exciting movie overall because it was brand new. It was also incredibly risky and ambitious: the creation of an alternate timeline with time travel could have EASILY failed, but it worked incredibly well. It would be very hard to top the 2009 film in that sense. Otherwise, I think STID is a much more exciting movie, and I enjoyed it from start to finish. I think Cumberbatch was a good Khan, I liked the Kirk death scene as a mirror to Spock's death, and so on.

I give both the 2009 film and STID an 8.5 or 9 out of 10.

Star Trek definitely felt more fresh (I swear STID reuses some of the same shots...), and it was a more exciting romp of a film.

But STID has a more satisfying story, and a tone that felt a little less Star Wars-lite, and I imagine I'll be coming back more to this one on rewatch.

They're pretty close though (...a bit too close imo).

I can agree with this.

Whoa. We do indeed have pretty much the same opinion on the films.

I remember a bunch of reused shots/angles in STID… the quick zoom outs, the rotating camera, etc.

I'm specifically thinking of the shots where the ships appear in front of another.

We get a shot from the Enterprise bridge and then a far shot of the two ships facing each other, with the enemy ship being much larger than the Enterprise.

I don't remember those so I'll have to rewatch and look out of them.
