Amusingly, some fans were saying Wrath of Khan was a Star Wars-ripoff popcorn action flick back in 1982 ("Indiana Skywalker Meets the Son of Star Trek", Best of Trek #7). And many fans were deeply disappointed in The Empire Strikes Back as well in 1980 (see here for one such example. Many old SW 'zines are scanned and online now expressing similar sentiment). Ultimately, only time will tell - although I for one know I'll enjoy Star Trek and Into Darkness for many years to come.
I was ready to tear that The Empire Strikes Back reviewer a new one, albeit 33 years too late, for his wrongheaded opinion, but then he used the word "meretricious" in the opening sentence and I realized "I can't stay mad at you."
Though he did misspell "definitely".

the script was puerile in the extreme - are these supposed to be sophisticated, mature people talking?
Just imagine his reaction to the prequels. Hoo boy!
Just walk away, and there will be an end to the horror.
