Re: STID "tracking" for $85-90 million opening [U.S. box office]
To me, that is the definition of this new Kirk. I wouldn't follow this Kirk for a single day, let alone five years.
This is a fair criticism of the character. I like Pine and I like this version of Kirk but they've simply moved him along much too quickly in these films.
