There's that, and there's the fact that you can't actually hold onto it by gripping harder.
Speak for yourself. My grip is fantastic.
Keep believing that.

So you're saying I should let go of my grip on reality?
I suppose it would be easier.

Trek isn't reality, Mister. It's fantasy.

I really think this is the first Trek film that felt epic to me. It felt like a movie.
It felt like a video game to me...

When your knickers smell of cat food and the pain of many tiny scratches is too much to bear, it's time to re-evaluate your feline/unmentionables policy.

On topic:

Star Trek! Wooo!!

I assume that's JJ on the lens flares, right?

Or possibly "shitty plot devices"?

Or "incidents of the same plot point being repeated three times in succession with decreasing complexity for the benefit of retards in the cheap seats"?

It could just as easily be the latter, but you're right, it's the former.
