So besides me who else...
 
is rewatching all the movies prior to attending STID? I've just popped in TMP, and plan on getting through all of them by next Friday.

Well, I watched XI again yesterday, but that's about as much as I will be doing...

I'm watching Star Trek on DVD on Wednesday, and seeing Into Darkness on Thursday. I re-watched most of the old films when the first ID trailers came out, so it's all fresh in my mind.

I had avoided Abrams Star Trek, deliberately, until I stumbled upon it on Channel 4 in the UK on Saturday night.
My worst fears were confirmed, it was crap and I did not enjoy the convoluted plot, the look, the CGI, and most importantly, the cast.

Chris Pine ?
Really ?

As James T Kirk ?
Never

Needless to say, I wont be going to the new one either.

^There will be (or already are) fans who see Chris Pine and think Kirk, and Shatner as the guy from the Priceline commericals

I am seeing STID at a screening on Monday. And watched 2009 last week.

I have to wait for the dvd since I can't see a movie screen clearly. Someone around here has been mentioning a challenge for months on watching all 700+ episodes and movies before the film opens.

I had some free time back around the end of February so I took the time then to sit down and watch the first eleven movies. This was the first time I've actually watched all Trek movies in a year since before Nemesis came out.

And I got to say, it was a blast. Granted, going through a marathon viewing like this really does emphasize how great the TOS movies are, and how the TNG movies lack by comparison. Really, the only movie I actually found disappointing was TMP. All the rest, even Trek V were great.

Although, Trek XI is something of an anomaly. While watching it I find I can for the most part enjoy it, primarily because I'm really not familiar with it (this was only my third time watching it, the previous two were in 2009). It's after it's done that and I start thinking about that all its flaws become noticeable. Although some flaws I do notice in the film, like the lens flares and how everyone is always talking over each other.

I'm waiting on my ST:INS DVD to get here. When it does, I'll have the full set of movies again, and then I will watch them all in order the week before the new movie. :D

You can really skip Insurrection, really.

If nothing else, rewatching TMP has reminded me that Kirk's white jumpsuit is far and away my favorite Trek Uniform. Makes me glad I decided to do this.

I'm hoping to squeeze in a rewatch of the 2009 movie before seeing the sequel, just to get me in the mood. And I've been listening to the soundtrack on pretty much a daily basis for weeks now. (It's a good STAR TREK writing music.)

Pine could play Kirk for 20 years and still not match up to Shatner.

Im pretty up on the first 20 minutes of every TOS movie seeing I put them in as a fall asleep pretty regularly haha...as for the rest of the movie? I could use some refreshing...I may give it a shot...

or I may wait to see if I notice any references while watching the new one and then watch the old ones. My brain works better when I know what I'm looking for sometimes.

Agreed...I just think the whole thing is something completely different than star trek was made out to be. Its for the newer generation full of action and cool effects. I just take it for what it is...and enjoy it for that
