But rather than simply posting a link to a lengthy review with which some may not be familiar and saying "There - that's what I think," why not describe your feelings about the movie in your own words?
I already did.

It's just that they sum it up better than I do. Some of us aren't as good as others at articulating our thoughts. There's also a laziness factor.

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

It feels like the producers are just editing out a few good parts from the original series and movies in order to coble together a semblance of a story and then so computer special effects to win som sort of wow factor.

perhaps the reboot needs a reboot.

Yes, but it seems to be okay to admit to not caring about the flaws of STID yet try to do the same for TWOK or FC and you're labelled a hypocrite.
For me, Spock yelling "Khaaan!!!!" or running down the street like a dork destroys my suspension of disbelief in a way that thinking "Gee, wasn't Checkov not on the Enterprise during Space Seed?" doesn't.
I agree with others that Nimoy used to 'run like a girl' in TOS on the few occasions he did run.
It was adorable

Or spam, in your case. This, despite several recent requests that it cease appearing under the newtontomato byline. Warned as such; comments to the Hormel Foods Corporation of Austin, MN.

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

Saw it for the fourth time today with my sixteen-year old son (first time) and he loved it.

The second, third and fourth times I've seen this film I've been fully aware of its shortcomings and have expected them to impact my enjoyment, but they haven't. This is a movie that simply grabs hold of you and doesn't let go from beginning to end. The cast is incredible. I could go again tonight to see it!

I just don't know how you can say you're a Trek fan and not enjoy Into Darkness on at least some level.

Careful now. If we get to protest the "real Trek fan can't possibly enjoy Abrams Trek", shtick, you can't give them any ammo to make the same argument in reverse.
