It's hysterical that people think it's worthwhile to nitpick and critique a movie made four years ago that's completely reinvigorated a dead franchise like Star Trek.
Maybe it's because having a franchise alive is not the be-all-end-all if it's become something so far removed from what fans fell in love with in the first place.
And besides, what's more absurd, the people who see fit to spend their time bashing JJ Trek or people like you who are its tireless defenders? I see no difference, really, unless you feel that the box-office receipts nullify anyone's opinion of the film's quality, which is a rather shallow argument to make.
