These parodies are better than the actual movie.

They were trying way to hard to be funny. Many of the things they point out as flaws, I actually liked.

I think the Onion actually gets much, much closer to reality:

http://www.theonion.com/video/trekki...tchable,14333/

Trekkies Bash New Star Trek Film As 'Fun, Watchable'.

I know the video is for Star Trek (2009) but is easily applicable to Star Trek Into Darkness.

I think part of the problem I've had with 2009 is it's the first Trek film I didn't see in a theater. You do lose something if you're watching it for the first time alone.

I do think that both movies lose a little something going from the big-screen to small. Goes to show that we haven't quite replicated the theater experience at home... yet.

The video is amusing, but I think some are missing that it's an affectionate parody, as are the majority of Honest Trailers. That's what makes them fun.

Saw it some time ago, mildly funny. Most of what they are complaining about are stylistic choices or thematic elements, so it's really based on your personal taste.

Honest Trailers can be quite hilarious. Cinema Sins does a funny series called "Everything wrong" which are usually better than Honest Trailers.

Excellent observation/recognition of the Movie-Going Experience, Mel and Bill...!!!

Theater Owners, take note...maybe next time we all go to the theater, we will be able to choose which Departmental Uniform we can choose to wear, and which technology/weaponry we will be able to include as accessories...

Yeah, and I've never owned even a bare bones "home theater" system. I first watched ST2009 on a 15" computer monitor.

The most complicated viewing setup I ever had was 27" tube tv, the vcr, and a stereo system. I'd read an article in Video Review magazine on how to wire four speakers together to make what they called a "matrix-surround" setup, with two speakers behind you. The most notable moment when I tested it was when Luke is fighting Vader in Empire I think it was, and he throws his light saber away. It clatters along the floor until you hear it behind you. In Raiders of the Lost Ark, when the birds or bats or whatever they are fly out of the cave in the beginning, was very effective too.

Now though, I'm only watching on a 19" tube with built in stereo speakers, so I'm missing a lot.

Re: Sorry NuTrek fans...

The Honest trailer is okay, I think it idolizes classic trek a little much in its take on nutrek. I think people don't take honest trailers as well as everything wrong with because the attitude of the voiceover. Honest trailers is parodying trailer voiceovers and the movie itself, while Everything wrong with is just parodying the movie.
