I saw STiD in 3D IMAX and the glasses they gave me fit comfortably over my own. The last time i saw a 3D movie was Avatar and the 3D glasses were so uncomfortable.

What would have been really cool is if there were a model of the TOS Constitution class ship on that desk too. Then we could have speculated that the Connie does indeed exist in this new universe, but that the nuEnterprise is a different class, since it has yet to be canonically called the Constitution class.
The new Enterprise is Constitution-class, it's on a screengraphic before the torpedoes are beamed out of their tubes to the Vengeance. It's among the graphics here: http://www.inventinginteractive.com/...into-darkness/

Perhaps it's just me but I felt that John Harrison reminded me more of Malik from the Augment trilogy than Khan. His motivation-in terms of exterminating "lesser" species-fit Malik more than Khan.
Speaking of the Augment issue, I twigged straight away during the Q'onos surface scene that Harrison was an Augment, but the actual Khan reveal still floored me.* Actually was a pretty big disappointment that Bandersnatch Cumberland's character was Khaaaaan, once that had sunk in - thought and hoped that was all clueless rumour-mongering by the media.

At least one of which is disproved by actually paying attention to the film.

Seriously if someone is going to bitch about something make sure they know what the f@#k they're talking about.

After that its all a bunch of crap probably I don't give two s@#ts about, as its meaningless fanboy whining.

Next!

How many times are you going to post this? We get it. You think STiD sucks. Most of us don't.

My guess is that most don't because they are only looking at the special effects, etc., and that they are ignoring these flaws. Did I get that right?

Here are more:

23 plot holes mentioned here:

http://blog.jerrynixon.com/2013/05/s...lot-holes.html

Some more here, with points about the plot being cobbled together:

http://www.tor.com/blogs/2013/05/sta...eview-spoilers

Issues concerning continuity, which Star Trek fans likely already realize:

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/filmcha...-spoilers.html

A point about the absence of techno-babble, which those new to Star Trek will probably not see as relevant:

http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/...rek_wrong.html

Another reference to the "muddled" plot:

http://movies.nytimes.com/2013/05/16...-j-abrams.html

Good points, though, regarding fleshing out characters:

http://www.nypost.com/p/entertainmen...zWW4E9uKZsJpfN

Plot holes re-mentioned here, but additional problems with the allusions to previous films:

http://collider.com/star-trek-into-darkness-review/

Another reference to fan service, and the idea of a "Trek" movie:

http://www.popcults.com/into-darknes...ar-trek-movie/

My views follow these, i.e., it's an OK action sci-fi, but the plot is weak and cumbersome. I appreciate the fact that they tried to attract an audience that likes action sci-fi movies but are new to Star Trek plus Star Trek fans that are looking for something new, but it doesn't work for this movie.

Seriously dude, you're really on the edge of trolling now with all this shit. Either give your own reasons why you dislike the film (in the appropriate section for that), or cease this incessant posting of links nobody gives a crap about.

No more repetitive posts; we can all read.

No more posts without substantive original content; the idea is to discuss, not simply post links without comment.

Also, your posts belong in the Trek XI+ forum, not here. Thanks.

What a load of crap. The second I read a swear word I clicked off the page. If you can't make an argument without using foul language, you have no argument...you're just trying to shock people. The movie is awesome. People know it. Deal with it.

Now can we get back to my OP? After a bunch of people have seen it multiple times, there are no other ENT references?
