    How about we let the people who've already seen it contradict or expand on what the actors are saying, rather than attacking someone pointing out what they said.

    That's fandom's raison d'etre, isn't it?

    How about we stop drawing conclusions that aren't in any way justified by what they said? To describe the film's action as "relentless" in no way suggests that there's nothing more to the movie than action. That's just putting the most negative and pessimistic spin on a statement that can be put on it, and that's truly sad.

    If pointing that out makes you feel "attacked" :wtf: - well, that's not my concern.


    Nice. :)

    That was just dumb.

    The date on the YouTube clip is from last July, so it seems unlikely.


    I see no attack here (unless your translation of "relentless" into "mindless action" was somehow intended thus) and if ever you feel you actually are being attacked, I'd prefer you use the [​IMG] button on the post in question rather than making accusations in-thread.

    No problem.

    I guess attack is not the appropriate word for what I was trying to describe. I believed he was trying to say my point wasn't valid because I haven't seen the film. I simply wanted to use those quotes to tease out more spoilers.

    I felt it was definitely an action-packed movie, yet somehow as well as (or in spite of) all that, it's ALL about the characters. I was also worried this movie would forsake character drama for action, but am happy to report that the action pivots around and super-charges the character journey, rather than the other way around.

    Good to know. I guess they have to emphasise the action, to sell it to the masses.

    In every interview I've read or watched, they always talk about all the character moments & interactions in the movie and how even though it has a lot of action, it's not just about that. :shrug:

    That James Cawley guy sounds like a douchebag.

    I looked him up on Wikipedia and it seems his major accomplishment is being an uncredited extra.

    Way to go, chief.

    It seems to be the day for reviews today. They all sound good so far.

    Im seeing a lot of adverts here in UK atm, looks like they are really ramping things up.

    The reviews thus far are looking very positive. Some of those websites are big players so they aren't just trying to please the studio. We are well on the way to at least an 80+ score on rotten tomatoes imo. Star Trek 09 got 95%.

    Review suggests it would have been better without all the nods to the fans?

    God that's a terribly written review.

    Aside from praising the movie, the reviewer has exactly one observation to make. Every single paragraph after the first one repeats his thesis, without advancing or exploring it in any way. Every single paragraph. Repeat, repeat, repeat - ten paragraphs, ten repetitions.

    It's tedious and amateurish.

    Dear JJ- Next time, you can save yourself a LOT of time, trouble and money with all that secrecy. I've been completely spoiled now and I'm STILL going to plunk down $$$ to see your film 2 or 3 times. :)
