Re: Advance screening/World Premiere discussions [the NO-SPOILERS vers

I am a long time lurker (started coming here around the "lets pay for Enterprise ourselves" era) and the new movie has moved me to register.

I dont know if I can avoid spoliers for a month.

The buzz is just so positive.

I am in my office right now about to have a stroke with excitement.

Well, Fat Harry over at AICN makes a point which is really rather obvious but he does it so succinctly in his Fat Harry style that it bears quoting:

All the doubting thomases should pay attention to one thing! Paramount is having HIGH PROFILE screenings beginning on April 6th in Austin and April 7th in Australia... and for the next 30 days leading up to release - they'll be screening this movie around the world. Here in the U.S. and throughout Asia and Europe - and even to US Troops in the Gulf.

This is only something a studio does when they know they have A BIG DICK! They whip it out and show it a bunch, because THIS DICK DOES NOT COME UP SHORT!
Star Trek being the big dick for Paramount is a good thing (or the big cock as Cogley would say it).

How good are the special effects?
Very good. There are a few moments where it looks a little CGI (mainly the warp effect), but the rest is fantastic. As much as the visuals are impressive, I was truly blown away by the sound mix. They combine very successfully to really make an incredible experience. Having seen Transformers in theatre (that was a great sound mix) I'm fairly certain this will be giving the home theatre system a great workout.

Music: Again, it's big. Not so much of a fan of the main theme for the film, but it does fit. Yes, the original theme does pop up in there.
I was hoping the movie would have a memorable theme (like Star Wars or TMP) but you are the second person who is not that crazy about it. But I guess that's not a big deal, as long as the overall music is good and enhances the viewing experience.
It's definitely good and Giacchino's score hits all the right beats, the melody just doesn't capture my interest as much. The action moments are spot on and the music swells in the places it needs to but the actual theme for some reason never quite seems to match the grand scale of the film itself. It's bombastic, but I think there's a theme out there somewhere the would've fit far better.

Great can't wait to see it.

what if we were watching adrien brody and matt damon now? makes you wonder. i'd like to say i know they made the right decision, but that would be a little facile. regardless, the new actors do a terrific job with their roles.

I know what you mean, urbandk. I'm kind of glad, now, that we had smaller named actors who will "put out more" to make this successful. At least I think so.

The very idea of Matt Damon and Adrien Brody as Kirk & Spock doesn't thrill me at all.

Ah, that gave us all a good laugh. Just the right thing to release all the tension of this anticipation in here!

If you can feel the Rock Penis then it's too late to do anything about it... Just relax and enjoy

Re: Advance screening/World Premiere discussions [the NO-SPOILERS vers

Another question for the lucky few...

A lot has been said in the past about the lens flares in the film and with the few clips that have been released yesterday and today people are talking about it again.

So how is it in the movie ? Are they noticeable, annoying, add realism, you hardly pay attention to them ? What's the story ?
