Maybe you should sue...
With real products, you would, wouldn't you?
I've seen you spout off this notion a few times. It's hilarious to think that you think it holds any water whatsoever. I guess we should all sue when the funny bits in trailers for comedies aren't in the actual movie.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Star Trek's a real product. The advertisers gave the impression for a certain expectation as a movie. Did they follow through to this individual's satisfaction? Was she REALLY "Pretty in Pink"? Was it truly "One Crazy Summer"? Was the "House" actually filled with "Animals"? I think not! Screw 'em!

Yeah...

But me personally? I haven't seen the movie yet. I'm totally looking forward to it!

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS & ROBOCOP with Peter Weller was the best AICN event ever it feels like right now! Weller is a treasure! Films ruled!

The film runs at a smooth two hours, never once dragged and could easily have gone on longer. JJ manages to navigate the main plot line and juggle all the different small character arcs, while giving us plenty of big blockbustery action. Watching this movie, I couldn’t help myself but wonder about JJ’s next big movie set in space. With Star Trek he has proven he can take a passionately loved franchise, reinvent it and make it accessible for non Trek-Heads (like yours truly) and also give devotees something new. With Star Trek Into Darkness he has upped his game. You could easily switch off and enjoy the romp through space but there are depths to be found thanks, to a good script, great actors and a director on flying form. Plus the fact that he’s not even a fan of the original Star Trek gives me great confidence in his work on a franchise he is obsessed about. For that, however, we will have to venture to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but for now, I have enjoyed every moment of this Trek.

I can hardly wait to see this movie! I'm buying the soundtrack on Tuesday, and I scored an IMAX 3D "Early-Nerd Special" tic for this Wednesday with some friends!

without spoiling anything do you guys believe that the USS Vengeance Class aka the dreadnought might be put into circulation or do you think it was a one stop shop?

Perhaps it helps you hipster kids to identify with Kirk by imagining his character as just a regular guy that wild stuff happens to. I guess that makes it easier than realizing his character is just better than you in every way.
Hipster kid? I'm 42 years old.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

There isn't much middle ground to be had in reactions so far. I'm having difficulty reconciling the praise being heaped on the movie with what I saw. Where I saw superficiality, they saw depth; where they saw a great movie, I saw a wasted opportunity. I'm tempted to wonder if they've put two different cuts into circulation.

Ok, so help me out here. For those of you who loved it, where did it hook you? Thinking back, I was engaged from the get go. The Niribu scene with The Enterprise rising out of the ocean was frelling awesome. Then we went through to Kirk's demotion - great. Then IIRC the bar scene... okay ... then, the scene with Kirk and Spock and the quibbling over how to address Kirk (before the big meeting and Harrison's assault). I reckon it's about there that I started to drift out. There was a bit of a lag, but I thought they were taking the foot off the pedal briefly before we got to the real meat of the story. Alas, it never got there for me.

Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I saw the film on Thursday here in the uk upon release.

I enjoyed it lots, but like anyone here, I have my gripes and affections that wil be discussed here eventually, I just can't face writing an epically long reveiw.

The opening 15 mins, enterprise mission rising out of the ocean, loved it. Kirks bollocking by Pike cracked me up, Nabiru's on the verge of inventing the wheel and thy see a hulking mother fracking star ship rise out of the water. Classic.

Cumberbatch was Khan, wasn't surprised. Part of me wishes that, although it was a fantastic retelling, it was an original villain. Still loved it though.

So, who liked the new sets? Silly question, I know, but if its a repeat question I apologise.

They had the brig obviously and and a new multi level type intersection which I assume runs through the centre of the saucer given the amount of levels. Funny thing is, it reminded me of a shopping mall. Lol. Off world duty free.

But the reboot is also a reboot of the characters' characters. Fine, make everyone in nuTrek super sensitive and in touch with their feelings - make Vulcans cry, but stop pretending these characters are even similar to the original characters, beyond their names.
All of us are products of our upbringings. Since this Kirk had a very different upbringing, he will have different attitudes.

So what?
