Certainly hasn't seemed worth mentioning from those who have seen it thus far.
If I'm counting right there are 12 mentions of the lens flares in this thread with only one person saying they like them. I'm not saying it ruins the whole film but it is annoying.
I've asked in the no-spoiler thread those who have seen the movie about the lens flares and the response I got is that they didn't really notice it in the movie, it wasn't a problem.

So maybe it's the small screen of a pc and the poor quality of these clips that make it seem worse than it really is.

We'll see.
Fair enough.

I didn't notice the flares as unusual until people started talking about them.

I guess it's an individual thing. Some people don't register it, others notice but don't mind, and some find it distracting.

Another thought I had though is why would there be lighting on the bridge that caused lense flares from a point of view angle. If your just standing on the bridge and the lights are constantly in your eyes it would be a distraction. I guess the design of the bridge set was influenced in part by Abrams love of the lense flare effect.

I read somewhere that the lens flare may be caused by encoding the film into flv files. Perhaps that's why they aren't so bad in the theater, but seem so annoying in the clips.

Re: New clip with Scotty

I'm now afraid with all this talk about lens flares, I won't be able to ignore them next time I see the movie, even thought they didn't register once with me the first time I saw it.

Re: New clip with Scotty

There wouldn't be so many flares if there weren't so many damn lights on the bridge!

Ok so about the clip, I get the impression NuSpock is not supposed to be told where the info on how to beam in at warp came from, (I don't want to be told for sure but) I bet NuSpock never gets told of of his future visit back in time. (Doc Brown would be pleased)

That's very interesting, knowing Kirk and Scotty know something about his future and keep that a secret from him all his life. I'll never look at the Classic episodes in the same way!

There is a reason, established in a previous scene, for everything Kirk is doing - it's not necessarily because Spock is not supposed to be told.

Quinto definately has the Vulcan thing down pretty damned well. Every time I watch that clip, I'm hearing a lot of Tuvok in the way that he sounds and talks.

Lens flare almost completely obscuring the actors at some points, constant camera motion, high speed pans. I hope the whole film isn't like that because half the audience will get motion sick or have a seizure.
Cloverfield. Need I say more?

No, you'd better not say more... for your sake.

Cloverfield was specifically shot to look like it was filmed with a simple hand held camera, held by one of the "heroes" in the film.

It was also directed by Matt Reeves and not Abrams.

The whole thing sounds like Speed Racer or something.
