Do repeated viewings of Star Trek 09 hold up so far?

4 viewings for me, & plot holes become as noticible as lens flares & concrete & iron pipes.
But, still loads of fun! *squints at BBS lens flare*
Sorry.
Flashback.

Holding up good for myself. In fact I caught something new on my fourth viewing. When McCoy is injecting Kirk in the sickbay, I finally noticed that he yelled for Nurse Chapel.

Uh, yes. At this point it's scripture.

I'm on my 12th viewing, and it still holds up great.

I watched it with the entire family tonight (Thanksgiving). Some had seen it, but others hadn't. Everyone loved it and we had a great time.

My ten year old niece was entranced by it. I think we may have a new Trekkie on the way.

We watched it like ten times this week at my son's request. Every time, we notice new logical flaws, and also new cool "easter egg" type things. It never stops being entertaining to watch, though.

Re: Do repeated viewings of Star Trek 09 hold up so far?

For the most part, yes. The more emotional parts continue to affect me, though time may tell whether the effect is lessened (realistically that wouldn't be very surprising).

The movie isn't perfect...in fact I think it's far from perfect and over-hyped...but it has a lot of redeeming qualities, and frankly, I'll forgive a lot given that it put the Trek franchise back on the map.

Re: Do repeated viewings of Star Trek 09 hold up so far?

We have watched the movie on screen four times and on the DVD four times. It does have plot holes, and some things just don't make sense. But the thing that keeps drawing me back is this: It's just a lot of fun.

Re: Do repeated viewings of Star Trek 09 hold up so far?

The great cast and terrific energy that permeates the movie lends a lot to re-watches, but the time-travel aspect and Nero in general get thinner and thinner for me. Also the "Will Kirk be able to escape the GIANT ICE MONSTER????" gets lamer, and I don't think Nimoy is really as strong in his brief appearances as I did the first time around. In the end though, like Brolan just said, the movie is too much fun to really lose out overall. It's a remarkably tight film, all things considered.

11 times at the theatre didn't make me enjoy the movie any less, so I would say yes.

Re: Do repeated viewings of Star Trek 09 hold up so far?

Pretty good on 3rd viewing. Kelvin sequence remains the movie's highlight. Bones is superb. Starfleet going to warp make my hairs stand on end. Nero gets more likeable. Scotty gets less annoying.

Unfortunately the plot holes just seem to get bigger on repeat viewings, the final act still disappoints, and the Enterprise engine room still reduces me to tears.
