So? Based on one of your previous posts, you and I are more or less the same age.... at most, a year's difference in one direction or the other. I started off on the previous stuff as well, and I enjoyed them. And I enjoyed this movie. The few friends I had of my age who also liked Star Trek all mostly enjoyed the new movie. I also had several friends get into Star Trek because of the new movie.
I am not the one bringing age into it, you are. The people who sit there talking about 'bringing trek to a new generation' for example.
very few of my friends find this film appealing or intellectually stimulating. And these are mostly within the age range of 18-25.
I have friends who are older than me, but they are generally not into star trek.
The point of this is that it is absurd to make all encompassing statements that the 'younger generation' will all just sit back and let this movie teethe them like babies who love bombast because its bright and colorful.
