It's fine to not like the movie, or feel it's nothing special, but exactly what does it lack to keep the franchise relevant? What roots does it forget? Especially if there are so many references to familiar things in STID.
Exactly. It is frustrating to see some people marking down the movie because of these supposed issues instead of just enjoying the movie for what it is. Straight out of the blocks this movie is on -3/10 for some people just because it does not agree with their personal vision of Star Trek.
