And, I do feel that people who do have issues with this film are being attacked by those who like the film. I have seen many disparaging comments lobbed by the latter toward the former.
An unfortunate side-effect of people being a bit emotionally-involved in their favourite franchise. Hopefully it's not mean-spirited.
I wish JJ Abrams luck on the next Star Wars film. I hope that, for the next Star Trek film, that we will have a writer or a team of writers that can write a story that has a strong narrative logic.
I can't say that I'm too pleased with motion pictures in the last 12 years or so. There are tons of good movies, but there seems to be an annoying focus on all-out action and too little on continuity and consistency.
That said, it may just be the fact that I grew up in a different decade.
