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

Another question pleeeeease.

We've seen the visual effects breathe new life into the spacebattles from the trailers. Is the rest of the movie as good with plenty more jaw dropping effects? Do we get a lot more things like the upside down cam or 'torpedo' cam? The latter was stunningly nice.

Another question for those who have seen it :

There was a lot of talk about Kirk going from "Cadet to Captain in a week"

Was this handled well and in a believable way ?

Yes, considering the circumstances and the stakes, I felt it was handled with some finesse. In the spoiler thread, I'll post a brief aside that I think is borderline for this thread.

yes. the best effects shots do not occur during battles, a refreshing change.

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

urbandk, or any other user who has seen it, we've been told that this movie features references to all the other shows. Is this true? I'm especially curious about any ENT references they might have thrown in.

I only recalled an ENT reference, none to the other series. Was hoping for a TNG reference but didn't notice any. :-/

The cast are going to be some interviews today in Sydney. Gonna look forward to seeing this in another 29 days when it opens here in Australia on May 7. Positive reviews I've heard.

hello..
maybe ask things like this in the review thread with spoilers since it can only be answered by people who have seen the whole movie.

it would be nice to limit this thread to just stuff revealed in the trailers.
please

Me confused - isn't it unusual to have a screening, for critics, this early before the release of a film?

Don't you want reviews to appear in the press the same week your film premiers?

Am I just hoped up on goof balls?
they asked the mainstream and some other media to hold back on full reviews until april 21.

but considering the good word of mouth emerging i can kinda see why they did this.
