Lens Flares

I think it’s funny that some reviewers of Star Trek: Into Darkness are up in arms about J.J. Abrams’ use of lens flares. I didn’t even notice them the first time around, so I made sure to look for them during my second viewing of the film. They are mostly noticeable during shots of the bridge, and I like how they make the bridge feel bright, dynamic, and exciting.

Here’s a video from DNews that explains how they’re created:

VERDICT: I’m in favor of the lens flares.
