STID would have been a much better film if JJ Abrams writers would have left Harrison as Harrison and had left K**n frozen with the rest of his crew and Harrison could have been one of K**ns followers like his number two from the original second movie.
As you should already know, K***'s unit was programmed to awaken him first should the B***** B** be triggered so, it would have made no sense to have his "number 1" revived while K*** was still frozen.

Re: STID: 10 years later

In the fan community it will still be loved. Hell the worst Trek movies have their fanbases.

Outside of diehards, no probably not, but that goes for virtually every trek movie especially the older ones.

Not as much as people should.

The Matrix is probably the most innovative and original film of the last 30 years. But the shitty squeals killed its hutzpah.

Titanic was important because it proved studios could spend obscene amounts and still make obscene amounts. If it weren't for it, then the film industry of 2000s would have been different. However, it's been "dethroned" (sort of speak) by its would-be successor.

Re: STID: 10 years later

The public forgot the TNG movies in a matter of months and they appear to remember only two of the TOS movies, so guessing 10 years out is difficult.

We, of course, will remember everything.

FC is probably the most comparable IMO; A movie that did well during its time, was generally liked, but I think is now considered just "meh" by most people these days.
According to what evidence is it "meh" these days?

Re: STID: 10 years later

Whenever a new Trek movie comes along, TV stations (in the UK at least) marathon through most or all of the prior films in the weeks before. They still get seen so long as more are made.

Not to mention that all of the first eleven ST movies are on DVD and still available. Many other movies fall "out of print".

This will have the same ongoing appeal as every other Star Trek movie.
