Re: Just got done viewing the latest StarTrek (2009) movie.
Universally everyone I talked to PREFERRED the Romulans in the movie to the way we've seen them in ST Prime.
Probably because all the Prime Romulans from TNG onward looked ridiculous. Between the unnecessary (and illogical) forehead ridges and the stupid one-size-fits-all bowl cut wigs, TNG era Romulans quickly became glorified aliens of the week. ST '09 at least gave us a character (although with dubious motivations)
