My favorite part of his "Nemesis" review:

I've also had it with the force shield that protects the Enterprise. The power on this thing is always going down. In movie after movie after movie I have to sit through sequences during which the captain is tersely informed that the front shield is down to 60 percent, or the back shield is down to 10 percent, or the side shield is leaking energy, and the captain tersely orders that power be shifted from the back to the sides or all put in the front, or whatever, and I'm thinking, life is too short to sit through 10 movies in which the power is shifted around on these shields.
To be fair that was not just a criticism of Nemesis he made but of all 10 movies.

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

As some of you know I worked on the TV shows for a number of years and also on 3 of the features. For full disclosure I did work on this one. I am also a long time fan of Trek. This movie almost moved me to tears. It was like watching a friend who you knew was dying a slow death come back to life. Not just alive but living. Oh I have my squacks about small things but thats like saying my back to life friend has a cowlick. Thank you JJ, Bob, Alex and Marc. We are in your debt.

^welcome to the board, it's nice to hear this from you

and yes I agree about the emotional impact. I too was moved to tears when I watched the free screening last week in DC. and in the next few weeks I'll be going again and again with various people in my life.

Ditto, and that one such incident was not long after the opening scene, with characters we've never met before, is even more amazing.

Very cool. What did you do in the film?

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

Saw it today in KC, and I loved it. A few minor quibbles with elements of the plot, but nothing I can't live with.

Looking forward to seeing it again.

I also remember Ebert complaining about the reference to a "positronic signal" as being insider, technobabble Trek jargon, which irritated me since it's obviously not Trek-speak, it's Issac Asimov!

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

Well, this afternoon I went to our local theater and I did see lots of Star Trek XI signs there, so that's good. The ticket vendor said the movie would be there this May 8th. As for reserving tickets, if we can it would be this coming Monday and only in person, so it looks like I'll be making a trip back up there this Monday. I am guaranteeing that I will have two tickets for opening night or so help me God I will knock nuns, little old ladies and girl scouts out of my way to reach the ticket counter before they sell out!

Thank you!
I was going to do it in color, but when I got it done everything looked too "busy", so I thought black and white would be just right.
