Walking out of a mostly full theatre at the end of Star Trek Into Darkness, I didn't hear any conversations whatsoever. Which in it's self is weird. Nobody was discussing the movie we just watched, either for good or for bad. Nor was anyone talking about their plans for the rest of the night. Just a couple hundred people walking out of a movie theatre in relative silence while the Alexander Courage Star Trek theme played.

That was another weird thing. When I saw the last J.J. Trek in 2009 nobody left their seats until after Nimoy's "Space the final frontier..." speech and the Star Trek theme during the closing credits. At the end of Star Trek into Darkness people started walking out right when Pine started his "Space the final frontier..." speech. By the time he got to "...where no man has gone before." nobody was sitting and nearly half the audience was out the doors. I said after, that it was like leaving a hockey game with five minutes left in the third period. I just thought it was interesting the different reactions from audience members in 2009 and 2013.

When I got out of the theatre and when I was almost to the parking lot was the only time I heard anyone say anything about the movie. It was a group of teenagers smoking weed, and one of the girls said "So they can cure death now, with magic blood?" One of the guys then added "And they can beam anywhere in the galaxy." At which point I had walked past them but I heard a girl ask someone "Could they do that in the show?" To which some guy said something like "No... but then again the show was good and had good writers." There was laughter followed by someone saying "Well, the special effects were good..." Then I was out of earshot and nearly at my car.

That was all I had heard anyone say about STD the night I saw it.
Your honesty and integrity are an inspiration to pot smoking teens everywhere, particularly pot smoking teens who prefer a tv series made 35 years before they were born.

Interesting, because I had a similar experience:

Caught a few swell eggs hangin' around an old jalopy of theirs swiggin' some hooch they scammed off a local Gin Mill. So as I strolls by, I hears one of 'em sayin', "Ya' know, that Kirk's quite a fly boy, and is quite the big cheese with the dames." They all nodded, and one of said, "And did you catch the gams on that Carol Marcus? Boy, what I wouldn't give to steal a cash or two from her in my rumble seat I tell ya'." "Yeah, but what's with the giggle wiggle all over the galaxy now? The whole space-time continuum thing ain't copasetic if ya' ask me." "Ahhh, says you. Don't be such a wet blanket. Ya' don't know from nothin'..."

Yep. Honest to g-d. Happened just like that...

That's how the kids talk these days, right? With their jazz music on the Victrola...

Wow, sarcasm much? How is it a stretch to think a 16 to 25 year old could prefer TOS over STD? Wrath of Khan came out before I was born but it's still my favorite Star Trek movie. How does the age of a movie or show diminish the quality of it's writing?

I never even considered that they were talking about 1960's TOS. Most people consider the title Star Trek to encompass all of Star Trek and not just the 3 seasons from 1966 to 1969. His comment about "the show" having better writing could have been about DS9, or even Enterprise (although someone would have to be high to think Enterprise had better writing than STD)

But whatever, I don't care. If I had overheard a positive conversation after Star Trek into Darkness I would have written about that, but I didn't. Not even a: "wasn't it cool when that guy did that thing and was all like arghh?" Like what one usually overhears after a big action movie. Instead all I heard was "the special effects were good." That's praise I guess.


However, before the movie, while I was in line to get my ticket, there was a couple of 20 somethings in front of me. The guy suggested that they see STD. The girl said "Star Trek's gay." So they got two tickets for Fast and the Furious.
