It would've made more sense to do The Hobbit.
^By itself, that sentence sounds like a dirty innuendo.
I haven't seen Prometheus. I haven't had time yet.
I just caught TDKR. Good film. Not my favorite of the trilogy.
Star Trek knocked it out of the park for me. It's a great start to (hopefully) a successful trilogy.
I think a better comparison would have been Star Trek 2009 vs. Batman Begins. Both are origin stories of a sort.
