    The questions are...

    How will it open in the dozen countries left?

    And in the US, what will the final figures be?

    230 or 240 MM?

    Although action isn't my preference, I don't mind STID being an action film. I just want it to be a good film. Is that too much to ask? Just because it's an action movie doesn't mean there has to be huge plot holes, terrible dialog ect.

    Action or not, STID was terrible.

    Some reviewers are now calling it "Star Trek Into Dumbness." A fitting title.

    And most reviewers have loved it. It's rating on "Rotten Tomatoes" is still very respectable. I've seen it four times now and have new things to like about it each time. Is it perfect? No. What ST movie is?

    I thought Shatner's ST V was pretty dumb most of the time; others say it's their favourite ST movie.

    Which reviewers are those? Rotton Tomatoes has it at 87% based on critics reviews and 92% base customer ratings.

    Well, they still air reruns of that. Have at it.

    Given the colossal wit and humor necessary to come up with such a groundbreaking insult, I suspect that we're dealing with the some of the finest middle school newspaper critics in the business.

    I liked the content.

    I do. If it makes money, I get more movies like it.

    It's not Star Trek when it's slow and intellectual and it's not Star Trek when it's fast and action-packed. You can't win with these guys. :(

    I know that it's gotten favorable reviews, which is one of the reasons why I was so surprised at how bad it was.

    The only Trek film worse was Nemesis.

    Everyone has their personal tastes. Hell, I love The Omega Glory and The Royale. :techman:

    Yep. The overseas total will probably more than double ST 09. Paramount will be very pleased with that market growth. We will definitely be seeing a sequel.

    The Undiscovered Country was pretty close to being perfect IMHO.

    The only thing I can say to that is that anyone who claims to have been a fan of TOS and says that J.J. "Michael Bay" Abrams' films "feel like TOS" are lying, and they either have not seen TOS or they have not seen Abrams' films (or they have not seen either).

    So you're calling people liars because they don't have the same opinions on entertainment as you do? Abrams made Star Trek fun for the first time since the early-90's for this fan whose been around since 1975.

    *I own Star Trek on Blu-ray and DVD, I own all ten prime timeline films on Blu-ray and DVD, I own Star Trek 2009 on Blu-ray and saw it at the theater four times and I already have Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-ray pre-order and have been to the theater three times to see it with various members of the family who have all loved it.

    Hell, I just watched the Star Trek Continues fan-film "Pilgrim of Eternity" just a couple of hours ago (I'm sick, I know). :lol:
