This thread is safe. I am remaining spoiler free as well. If any spoilers do pop up in here they'll be taken out ASAP. People have been pretty respectful in here regarding spoilers so far. I don't see that changing.

Perhaps people who've seen the movie can, without giving any spoilers, recommend OS episodes the movie made you think of while you viewed it?
maybe the menagerie. the tension between the characters made me think of that one, as well as pike, split loyalties, deception, moral message.
oooh, now this I like the thought of!!

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

back to the review..
this would have been during the time period that spock and sarek had not spoken as father and son due to spock's decision to join starfleet.
so yeah perhaps sarek is a little grumpy..

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

pookha for some reason I thought they hadn't seen each other during those 18 years either. but this being re-imagining and all, it's possible, I guess. I am very interested in seeing Spock's evolution in this movie. it should set the tone for the sequels.

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

oh but they had seen each other.
for one thing spocks differences didnt go to amanda.

at the time of babel we learn spock had come to see them four years ago.
and if it wasnt as if spock and sarek didnt speak.
look at the wording,. didnt speak as father and son.
so i suspect spock would go and see his mother and then he and his father would only communicate on very formal terms as ambassador and officer.

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

Here's an interesting brief assessment from the Entertainment Weekly blog about the Austin showing from someone with the screen name LaureL:

So, I was there for this, and I'd never seen an episode of Star Trek in my life (a friend convinced me to go). So as an outsider, I thought the movie was pretty standard blockbuster faire, but... there was something shiningly happy about it. Of course, the set-up was pretty intensely great, so I might be biased, but I enjoyed the movie very much and would badger people into going to see it. My prediction: it gets a B from EW. I'd give it a B+.
I like that - "there was something shiningly happy about it."

oh right! four years! I'd forgotten about that. you know, this is going to make me watch some of the key TOS eps again to refresh my memory of the dialogue. good thing. this is one, and also Menagerie (I think urbandk said that the movie reminded him of that ep) and perhaps the Enterprise Incident.

That is reassuring. I like it too.
