Re: Star Trek: Into Darkness Discussion [**NO SPOILERS PLEASE**]

I agree with repeat viewings. I saw 09 three times and I could relax a little knowing the story and could take in more stuff such as call backs and certain things such as effects and sound. Sounds silly but its true.

I plan on seeing STID at least one more time. It needs it. Cannot make up my mind after one sitting.

Every trek fan will love it at some point though.

Re: Star Trek: Into Darkness Discussion [**NO SPOILERS PLEASE**]

My new favourite third movie, eclipsed Star Trek TUC for me...

I'd now rated my list as

8>2>12>6>11>who cares

I will say its just great to me there are people appreciating and discovering the rest of Star Trek through these movies too.

The Danbarry - Middletown must be far different than the Danbarry - Florence! I went to ours once and it was the worst experience I ever had in a theater. Terrible chairs, terrible sound system and the picture was incredibly dim.

I'm going to AMC Newport on the Levee.

One viewing may not be enough to make up your mind.
The movie has a lot of things to take in and once you managed to process it you may want to see it again to make sure your opinion is valid.
LOL, nice try, greedy producers.
That's how ST:TMP made all its money. Even fans who absolutely hated it went back 15 times.

I've never been to the one in Florence. The one in Middletown I've gone to for years, and it's actually pretty nice. As theaters go, I'd give it a solid "B."

Also, they've just transitioned to the Sony 4K cinema setup. Our Danbarry seems intent on improving their theater, which is great. I don't mind paying $4 for a small popcorn if it means a much better theater experience.

Oh, which reminds me: When I went to purchase the tickets, they had to go authorize the system to sell ST:ID advance tickets. It seems that the corporate office had sent the authorization without notifying them. That only took a few minutes, but while I was waiting off to the side of the line, matinee hours began. So you could see a whole line of senior citizens coming in to watch a movie. They were all coming to see Gatsby, (which I want to see as well).

Anyway, so 15 or 20 of them go through the line, and all of them are wanting to watch Gatsby. Well, toward the end, this little old lady, hunched over, with walking stick, cream yellow colored blouse, white hair, real sweet looking, shuffles up to the counter. The sales agent says, "one for Gatsby, ma'am?" to which she replies, "No way! One ticket for Iron Man 3, please."

As she walked away, I commented, "wanting to see that sexy Robert Downey, Jr.?" at which point, she says, without even turning back, "you bet I am!"

I just about died laughing.

Re: Star Trek: Into Darkness Discussion [**NO SPOILERS PLEASE**]

Well, I'm seeing it next Thursday night with my non-Trekkie friend Michelle in Pittsburgh. I chose the Cinemark in Robinson Township, with the big XD screen, and we will be watching in XD 3D.

I'm confident I'll enjoy it. There has yet to be a Star Trek movie that I absolutely hated. Yep, I find redeeming qualities even in TFF and Nemesis.

Yeah he was, made me happy he got a line and an interaction with the cast. Nice little thing abrams gave the family.

I had the same conversation with a friend. I'm so happy that people such as the friend I spoke, and others I know, will watch a new Star Trek movie and enjoy it. 10 years ago it was stereotyped for nerds.

Star Trek was once just for us fans, now, I love the fact abrams has introduced it to new audiences who embrace it and are digging out the show/movies to see what makes trek good.

Makes me happy. Sounds corny, but it's true.

I dont care what anybody has to say, but JJ has been the best thing to happen to Star Trek in the past 15 years or so.

Seems we have several people from the Cincinnati area on this board! I live up in Lebanon myself, which is only a few miles from Middletown. Like you, I'll be seeing STID at the AMC at Newport on the 15th!

Re: Star Trek: Into Darkness Discussion [**NO SPOILERS PLEASE**]

I'm one of those huge trek fans who thought the 2009 movie was great as a summer blockbuster but below average as a "trek" movie. And quite frankly, this is the first time in my entire life where I'm seriously considering skipping a trek movie premiere.

So this is my question to those who have watched the movie, give me a reason why I should not miss Into Darkness?

Re: Star Trek: Into Darkness Discussion [**NO SPOILERS PLEASE**]

You'll regret not seeing it at the cinema, in 3D, in IMAX because I regret years later not seeing a lot of the Trek movies I missed at the cinema.
If you dont want to give JJ the satisfaction of your ticket money at the box office, fair enough but you'll be the one missing out IMO

You don't necessarily have to go and see the premiere, but watch it at least once on the big screen.

It is a lot of flash and action and a wild rollercoaster ride, but the story, while not perfect (which trek story on the big screen is?) it has a moral and social message and strong ties to old Trek and characterizes the well known characters in a new but familiar way.
