Christ. I am so sick of this anti-Abrams stuff. Will you guys just get over it? The man and his team successfully revived a DEAD franchise.
If he does or doesn't direct the next Star Wars and does return to Trek, or whatever happens, we should be thanking him for making Star Trek globally popular again. Making a movie is not easy. Making a big budget movie is not easy. Plenty of people do it and the movies flop. Abrams delivered two qualified successes. Can we just be grateful and stop with the "ZOMG this is TERRIBLE!" stuff?
So what you are saying is that I should be thanking him even though I didn't really like his movies, because they "made money"
That doesn't really make sense to me. I think there are a lot of directors who could have done what he has done, and a fair few who could have done better. And I want to see them get the chance.
