Am I the only one thinking I came out of a kickbutt, awesome film?

I think we need a positive thread section cause all the old trek nerds are going NUTS with their nerd rage

I really thought it was well done in almost every way - actually could have used a little more from the villian storyline

Can some not enjoy this on its own merits, without having to constantly rate it with the other movies?
I loved it. Just came home from seeing it. And, I like your avatar

I just watched that episode last night, too... the only thing I didn't like about this movie is (and this is not much of a spoiler) is the continuous use of repeated stuff from older films. Superman Returns did this and I don't know why it has to be done... but they didn't do much of it in this film so it was cool !

It's really a pity that CBS apparently bobbled the whole merchandising thing and spurred Abrams to move on to Star Wars. This movie proves that he had the potential to transform the shape of the whole Franchise for the better.

Asswipes. With management thinking like that, the best - and somewhat likely - thing that can happen to Trek is that at some point a staggering CBS sells its then underperforming share of Star Trek to Paramount for some needed cash.

Re: Post here if you actually loved this movie!!

I loved it. I will admit I had not started watching the TV shows until this year but sirs and maams, I have watched EVERY EPISODE EVERY MOVIE EVERY FAN MADE MOVIE AND READ EVERY BOOK..lol I love star trek and I consider myself a true trekkie. I loved the movie and as long as people can realize that the movie is NOT Wrath of Kahn, it is an awesome experience. Especially in the IDK 72 FOOT SCREENS with some kind of bad ass future sound system.....in 3d...

I could just listen to him playing Captain Exposition all day long!

I loved the film and found nothing wrong with it. The fanservice was great, but didn't overwhelm the story - people who have no idea what a gorn is won't be bothered.

All in all, awesome, although it could have been a little longer...

Also, Mickey Smith!

Cumberkhan = Fantastic

I have no problems with it. I thought it was really good, though I will admit that I didn't *love* it like I did ST09. Still, I'm planning a second viewing with my dad next week.

So let's have a positive thread which starts by belittling those who have different opinions. Sigh.

I liked the film aside from the Khan scene, but this sort of attitude - albeit I think more flippant than most examples - is tiresome.

This is a fine way to frame this thread, and I'm quite happy to see a thread like this exists on TrekBBS amidst the expected unhappiness. Acknowledging that some negative reactions to the movie are far overblown is definitely fair.

I very much liked this movie. I think parts of it were overdone, but it's also a summer popcorn movie and anyone wanting to see longwinded discussions of the Prime Directive or trade negotiations with the Nausicaans is completely misguided. Of course the 2nd film would take on the most iconic villain of TOS -- this is the Batman Begins/Dark Knight model, and one that I fully expect the new Superman movies to do as well.

It was a solid *movie* first and foremost; well-acted, well-paced, and well-written. Was it good Star Trek? Certainly better than any of the Next Generation films, and, IMHO, better than any of the TOS films other than Wrath of Khan.

Yes, I loved the movie! Virtually everything about it was fantastic for me! I loved the cinematography, the music, the action scenes as well as the character moments. And, the story was a lot of fun!

I definitely loved it. Will be going to see it again tonight.

A lot of the complaints that people levied I ended up feeling were just baseless now that I've seen the movie. I liked how Carol Marcus was used (undies aside, that was gratuitous), I like how Bones was used, I liked the story and the pacing, I thought everything was very well explained. And it DEFINITELY felt like "real Trek."

Re: Post here if you actually loved this movie!!

It was simply amazing! I loved this one probably a bit more than the last one. I'm going to see it in 35mm this weekend, but a couple nights ago I saw it in IMAX 3D and it was mind-blowing!

Beyond the visuals, I have to echo the praise for Chris Pine. He wasn't Pine as Kirk or Pine as Shatner as Kirk. He was playing James Kirk, plain and simple. The beginning sequence on Nibiru into the credits, for one, was simply outstanding and made me feel like I was back in 1982, discovering TOS on TV and feeling the excitement of meeting a new group of friends.

I actually found myself tearing up a bit after the warp core scene.

This was not only a great Star Trek movie, but a great movie, period. I saw Iron Man 3 a couple weeks ago, and as a movie itself, this blows STID blows it away.
