Look, guys, ST-2009 had its problems:

- The style was superficial (lens flare etc.) and hyperkinetic.
Dont see how either stylistic choice is superficial.

- Spock marooning Kirk on an ice planet was something you might see in a freewheeling Star Wars "rebellion," not a formal and disciplined service like Starfleet.
Neither is kidnapping your former commander and hijacking your current commander's ship.

- Spock/Uhura gave me the creeps. Outside of ponn farr, Spock was never supposed to be a horndog.
How does Spock being involved with Uhura turn him into a "horndog"? Is there a definition of "horndog" that I'm unaware of?

- It was the third Trek film in a row (!) to have an absurdly gigantic enemy ship hover over a planet and deploy a devastating weapon.

That said, we Classic fans should make the best of it. Some good music, some good dramatic scenes here and there, some good ship fx, action set pieces... We should just take what we can from this new version because it does have some things to offer.
As a Classic fan I agree with this.
