I don't know ancient
, I consider myself a real fan and I'm all for this film as long as it really does honor the source material. I'm expecting changes but as long as they really don't fly in the face of truly established canon, then I can live with it.
Considering that Smith saw an incomplete cut of the film, that fact that he's that impressed indicates to me that the finished product should be worth viewing.
Then again, I could end up bitching in May that this is horrible and worse than Nemesis
