Re: Was There Enough DETONATION?

Oh, There was detonation, in the mothers' basements of the truTrekkers everywhere!

A good example of how bad that is can be seen in Generations. Anyone casually versed in Trek tech knows a Galaxy class ship would utterly crush a Klingon Bird of Prey, shields or no.
I believe that point was made by dialogue in the film itself:
"That is a Galaxy-class starship. We are no match for them."

Yes, there needed to be more detonations. I expected to see the torpedoes slam into Qo'nos and detonate Ketha.
I expected all of London to be detonated, judging by the post-detonation landscape of the posters.

I was looking forward to this.
If you really want to see London detonated, you may want to endure G.I. JOE 2.

And yeah, where were the detonations? The very first official plot description promised the fleet would be detonated. Yet this didn't happen. WTF?
Not only was the fleet supposed to be detonated. The fleet and "all that it stands for" was supposed to be detonated. How that was supposed to happen and be adequately portrayed on screen is anybody's guess. It would have required a degree of artistry and existentialism that J.J. Abrams doesn't seem to have.

Endure G.I. Joe 2? Is that endure, in the same way one endures Star Trek Into Darkness? Admittedly, STD is a bit better than G.I. Joe2, but not by much. Both movies are of the same ilk. They are both made for the same type of people. Sure STD has 87% on Rottentomatoes, while G.I. Joe has 28%. But when one looks closer, most of the positive reviews on RT for STD are only just barely. With many of the top critics giving 6/10 or 2.5 out of 4 stars. But since a mostly, kind of, positive review is counted as an overwhelmingly positive review, STD gets an overall of 87%.

I just don't see how STD can be enjoyed, but G.I. Joe has to be endured.

GI Joe 2 I saw once and was bored to death and had no idea who anyone was or why I should care about anything that was happening.

Each to their own, but I loved Into Darkness. Saw it four times, three in England once in New York. It packed a strong emotional punch, IMO. I loved the characters and I was gripped from start to finish.

Agree with all above, but remind the scene when the Vengeance shot the Enterprise out of warp was awesome.

The problem with Space movies in general, is for long there was a dearth of special effects and everyone was left wanting more. Now that 'more' is readily available and filmmakers dont know where to go to.
