    Sorry, ain't happenin' on this planet.

    Why should I care whether JJTrek brings more fans to oldTrek? Star Trek is neither a religion nor an insurance pool.

    "No." - the overwhelmingly vast majority of those who watched the Abrams Trek films (as witnessed by word of mouth polls and critical response to each one)

    Those $1,378,385 are showing that the movie has legs

    We're all familiar with "The Tale of Boy Therin and Star Trek: The Motion Picture," thank you. In this forum alone, you must have told it more than a hundred times; I don't doubt that some here are now able to repeat it from memory and I hope that they're not also haunted by it when they sleep. Perhaps you'd be kind enough to give that story a rest for a bit?

    Cool, if I recall that site doesn't include blu rays either and DVDs are pretty cheap now, even new ones.

    I probably am being optimistic (which is against my nature) thinking MOS won't have legs and that will benefit STID. Still MOS is down to 65 percent fresh at Rotten Tomatoes (60+ reviews) and there are few effusively kind reivews among the positive ones. Ann Hornaday of "The Washington Post" (who loved STID) absolutely panned the movie on radio, today.

    Actually, I was really hoping it would be better. I've always liked Superman more than any other comic book hero, and was rooting for a treatment of his character that would finally rise to the quality of the best treatments of the Marvel characters and Batman. As it is, I think I could miss MOS and not feel I missed out on anything special. So, I guess I'm going on a gut feeling that I'm not alone in that opinion.

    Interesting note: In his "Chicago Tribune" review, Michael Phillips said there are $170 million worth of product tie-ins in MOS. He also said the crowd he watched the movie with exited the theater quiet and a little shell-shocked.

    Well, I'm seeing it this week-end. I have high hopes for it, and I hope DC/WB won't dissapoint me.

    I liked the film Watchmen, but I think the tone in that film is wrong for a Superman film. And I think that tone has been brought into MOS, which will weigh the film down. And, I think the people involved may have missed the point of Superman. I am reading that his persona as Clark Kent is largely missing from the film.

    On the persona of Clark Kent, I remember a quote from Kill Bill, Volume 2. Bill, the head of an international assassin guild, observed that,

    If you adjust for inflation, then ST2009's dollar figure is $1,400,394.

    STID is going to bring in less box office revenue domestically than ST2009. Also, it's doing worse amongst the younger demographic (which studios covet).

    And its far, far stronger in international markets which was one thing that was very important to Paramount.
