You're not shy. You're wrong.
In your opinion.

Well certainly nuTrek's a good deal more like TOS in most respects than ST-TMP.
This keeps getting repeated and simply convinces me those who say it weren't watching the same show others were watching.

Why do I have such a strong reaction against this film? Because it offends me. Star Trek TOS is my all-time favourite series. In the '70s I like many others wished the series more respect than it often got. It was a long road before it was brought back (setting aside that when it returned it wasn't always what we'd hoped for).

Now along comes JJ with his offensively shallow and juvenile take on it to perpetuate the misconception that it was always shallow and juvenile. What an ignorant asshole.

I've seen lots of bad films and some of them reboots of things I didn't really care about. I could criticize those without being offended because I didn't really care about the originals. But rebooting TOS in such an insultingly shallow manner really burns my ass.

Yeah, JJ will still make a bundle on it. And I hope he chokes on it.
STAR TREK: 1964-1991, 2013-?
