    • That's more like it. Into Darkness arrives on UHD alongside 2009's Star Trek, and both have been upgraded to Dolby Atmos sound. Unlike the 2009 film, which never used the height channels to full effect,...

    • 'Star Trek Into Darkness' beams up to 4K with an English Dolby Atmos track (which plays as a 7.1 Dolby TrueHD track for those without an Atmos set-up) that is nothing short of reference-quality. Even slightly...

    • While I would never claim to be the Trekiest of Trekkies, I've been a die-hard fan of the franchise since my parents dumped me off at a theater to see Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan in 1982 so they could...

    • There's no denying that 'Star Trek Into Darkness' is at times entertaining and action-packed. The movie's biggest faults lie in the fact that it doesn't feel very much like a 'Star Trek' film, nor does...
