I followed the link and had an overwhelming sense of "been there, done that." Really? Three years in and all you could do was rehash everything that has been beaten to death on this and every other Star Trek forum? Sigh.
Not, you'll please note, that I disagree with most of his complaints. They pretty much follow my issues with the film. The difference is that I enjoyed
the bloody thing! I was at a point in my life where I just couldn't engender any enthusiasm for Trek. I actually thought I had put all of the technobabble nonsense out of my life for good. Enter J.J.
I loved the film. Despite the fact that I think it is the worst of all the Trek films saving IV. (I really, REALLY
hate that one...but I still watch it). It had plot holes you could toss a galaxy through, design and aesthetic issues that make it look like their conceptual staff were all about 11 and the single most absurd location ever used for part of a star ship. I still came out pumped and excited, my enthusiasm for things Trek reborn with a new fervor. Thank you, J.J.
I can't explain this well. My daughter caught me watching '09 a couple of nights ago and asked me "Why? This movie sucks!" and I had to answer, "Yep. But I LOVE it anyway!"
