This is a film that I have been looking forward to for 4 years. Ever since the first JJ Abrams Star Trek was released in 2009 I was really looking forward to the sequel and I'm a bit surprised that it took this long for the sequel. After watching it, I can see why it took 4 years, they wanted to make this sequel as good as possible and it works. Star Trek Into Darkness is a blast. Now this review will be spoiler free as I don't want to give away the film unlike some other websites (looking at you iMDB) so rest assured, the major plot points in this film will be unspoiled.

When I was thinking about my most anticipated films for 2013, the only film that I could think of that could possibly go at number one was the final part of the Three Colour's Cornetto Trilogy: The World's End. Now, the first trailer for the film has been released and it looks like my anticipation has been worth it.

Today, one of the people who had the most long lasting effects on the film industry, Ray Harryhausen has passed away. The work Harryhausen did to pioneer stop-motion animation has entered the iconography of our culture in a way that no other special effects artist has managed and his work will be seen by generations to come. A few years ago, I went to see an exhibit dedicated to Harryhausen at the London Film Museum and I was amazed by the incredible levels of detail that he put into all of his models and seeing those models up close is just awe inspiring. After the jump are a few scenes to highlight his incredible career. Ray Harryhausen: you shall be missed.
