The lens flare only bugs me on the bridge.
It's supposed to be a well designed workspace where blinding beams of light are not a problem.
It took me out of the story a little.
I don't mind it anywhere else though.

Yea, the bridge was only problm with them too, all the lens flare in that stark white set blinded me and I couldn't appreciate the scenes on the bridge, because I couldn't see anything. The lens flares in the bar were no poblem at all, and the lensflare on the ship wasn't bad as long as it wasn't against all white background.

Where are we going? And why are we in this Handbasket?

Re: Less Lens Flares?

But the film is still in post production so more might be added
Most of the lens flares in the last film were added live on the set, save for the ones in the "exterior" (space) shots
See, the problem is that you are using your cards to show me what cards you have, and if you can't see that this is viciously circular, then there is no point in continuing

The thing about the bar was it wasn't very brightly lit, and the scene took place at night. There shouldn't be much opportunity for lens flare. And yet we had lens flares somehow going off every ten seconds.

Star Trek 09 had a ton of problems, but as amusing as the lens flare jokes are it's just a graphical issue. Graphics enhance a film, they don't define it so the flares aren't what caused 09 to be a facepalm plot wise.

If that's what JJ thinks the future looks like, fine. In the 60's we thought brightly colored boxy consoles with huge levers and knobs was so cool looking and futuristic. It's just how it goes.
