    I already did.

    It's just that they sum it up better than I do. Some of us aren't as good as others at articulating our thoughts. There's also a laziness factor.

    Left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot (repeat for as long as needed, then do a D.S. al Coda.)

    It feels like the producers are just editing out a few good parts from the original series and movies in order to coble together a semblance of a story and then so computer special effects to win som sort of wow factor.

    perhaps the reboot needs a reboot.

    I agree with others that Nimoy used to 'run like a girl' in TOS on the few occasions he did run.
    It was adorable;)

    Or spam, in your case. This, despite several recent requests that it cease appearing under the newtontomato byline. Warned as such; comments to the Hormel Foods Corporation of Austin, MN.

    Myself and CorporalCaptain in another thread thought he looked like an albatross ready to take flight! (still adorable...) :techman:

    Saw it for the fourth time today with my sixteen-year old son (first time) and he loved it.

    The second, third and fourth times I've seen this film I've been fully aware of its shortcomings and have expected them to impact my enjoyment, but they haven't. This is a movie that simply grabs hold of you and doesn't let go from beginning to end. The cast is incredible. I could go again tonight to see it!

    I just don't know how you can say you're a Trek fan and not enjoy Into Darkness on at least some level.

    Careful now. If we get to protest the "real Trek fan can't possibly enjoy Abrams Trek", shtick, you can't give them any ammo to make the same argument in reverse. ;)

    For me, a movie becomes "bad" when something in it takes me out of the movie experience. I starting thinking about the flaw, and not the movie. For me, the flaws in ST didn't take me out of the film, so I'm more forgiving of them.

    One can always find a good explanation for things from the Pythons. :bolian:

    As far as plot-holes go...

    When the Enterprise starts what I've seen called her improbable fall to Earth, couldn't she have actually been in the planet's orbital path? At roughly 67,000 miles per hour and factoring in the time it took for New Vulcan to be called, the Vengeance repaired, torpedoes to be sabotaged I don't think the fall is as unlikely as when I saw the film before. :shrug:

    An excellent example of applying a bit of thought to the available evidence and arriving at a reasonably plausible conclusion without having it all explicitly laid out to you.:techman:

    You deserve a commendation for original thinking. ;)

    Its OK not to like it but its OK for others to like it.

    'Naked Now' took me out of TNG for years. I still hate it. Yet lots of people like TNG and 'Naked Now'. That's OK - it was my loss. As the years have progressed I'm getting over it and even like some Season 1 of TNG;)

    Some people are only 24th century fans.

    I thought it was just me :lol:
