I know that it's gotten favorable reviews, which is one of the reasons why I was so surprised at how bad it was.

The only Trek film worse was Nemesis.
Worse than Nemesis? Just goes to show how relative this all is. Even though I found STiD to be a disappointment, I would never be so cruel as to condemn it below Nemeshite.

The stellar RT rating left no doubt in my mind I was going to enjoy the film. I posted here immediately afterwards, dazed and confused. I thought perhaps the stresses of the day had impeded my experience, so held off on a more conclusive judgement until a second viewing. Regrettably, the second viewing was definitive.

So yes, I like to get some digs in after such a letdown. However, I'm not suggesting anyone else *not* enjoy the film.
This is, excuse me ... a damn fine cup of coffee...
