Hmm. I took "Expectations are low" as a comment on the public's expectations, since we had been talking about the general buzz concerning the sequel, but if you just meant "My expectations are low," fair enough.
There are so many people on-line these days who often claim to be speaking for fandom as a whole, especially where the Trek reboot is concerned, that I may have overreacted.
I'll agree with that notion. I never claimed to be speaking for all fandom. How could I when we can't even agree who's better, Picard or Kirk?
As for the upcoming movie, I hope I'm wrong and I'm pleasantly surprised. Stranger things have definitely happened, but the last one just didn't do it for me. It just had a whole Star Wars feeling to me, covering up lack of substance with some very flashy graphics.
