Something fishy about that statement.

Hysterical, guys - you sound like my husband and his buddies when they get wound up and on a roll. Chick flick, indeed - take a chick and see how much she'll like it.

Indranee, thanks for the 'chick' support - I found several of your posts very balanced and informative. I am struggling with understanding how someone sees no character development in this movie or calls it nothing but an FX show.

Re: The Official STAR TREK Grading & Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]

One other interesting conversation the 3 of us had after the movie was concerning the younger missing the reference for Kirk calling McCoy 'Bones'. The elder explained the context from the movie (divorce only leaving him bones or a picked clean carcass), then I explained that in the 60s, this was a common shortening of 'sawbones', which neither had ever heard before. The elder includes a BSN among her college work, and is quite well-read, but had never heard such a medical reference. I guess you have to be at least my age or have an interest in 19th century medicine to get it, so a new explanation is a good idea.

I saw the film on Saturday.

Voted "Below Average".

The writers appear to have written themselves into a corner, and need a deus ex machina in the form of old Spok to tell the cast how to proceed.
Nero, who is hammed up by Bana in every single one of the 30 seconds he's allowed to defile the screen, is too preoccupied with an overly convoluted plot to avenge his wife (who isn't dead yet) to use the technology he's applying so stupidly to his misguided vengeance to prevent the disaster he wants revenge for.

Why does the Enterprise water supply have a blender the size of a truck in it, and why use glass pipes?

Lens flare. I say no more.

What is it with people complaining about the lens flares? When I first read the complaint I couldn't even remember them, when I saw it the second time I looked out for them, and sure I noticed them but I couldn't care less, didn't bother me at all.

We noticed them.

I didn't find out until afterwards that it was apparently a big thing, but they irritated the hell out of me. Every external shot does not need a lens flare.

First time I can only recall noticing one, which I assumed was there to cover up some mistake or something. The second time, when I was looking out for them, I spotted a lot, but since they were present in the CG as well as the live action I just assumed they were meant to be there because of how brightly lit everything was, and thought no more of it.

I was exactly the same. I never even noticed much lens flair until there were so many complaints about it

His wife is dead. Who knows how different this universe is compared to his own.

Who says it's a blender? How many water processing facilities have you built? As for the pipes, who says it's glass?

Lens flares didn't bother me one bit.
