^Isn't that called Treksposition, (trek+exposition) something I thought we (mostly) all were happy to see so greatly reduced in ST09?
Anway, some thoughts from reading upthread. Overheard, (by me) of father of family just before screening of ST09 started: "This movie better not turn my son into a nerd
" (I turned around aiming a stern glare directly at him, he flashed an embarrassed smile which said, No offense intended.
Not sure which of us won that encounter.)
I liked Batman Forever, Batman Begins, TDN. I hated Batman & Robin, TDNR.
INS was an expanded NG episode. I've gone back and forth over NEM, some viewings I can get into it but others, I shut it off.
