    In an effort to bring Star Trek to a new audience , Mr.Abrams used every modern day filming technique and special effect that he possibly could . Fast pans,shakey camera,fast cuts,out of focus shots,etc. detracted from some key scenes.

    Spock is now a highly emotional person that is carrying on an open affair with Uhura , that in my opinion was made to appear slutty. Kirk is a bit over the top and is made to look like an obnoxious street tough from some era gone by . Even Scotty was made to look a bit ditzy and did not carry the same dignity as the original.

    In an effort to bring Lenord Nimoy into the film ,the Star Trek backstory is forever alltered through the never ending Star Trek standby story line, "Time Travel".

    The new Enterprise Bridge looks like my old friends mothers Jewish boyfriends bachelor pad on the top floor of the Gloucester Apartment Building in Downtown Boston circa. 1977.

    It was so pathetic, when in an effort to somehow tie in the old Star Trek with the new, the catchphases,Spock :"Illogical", and McCoy:" Im a doctor not a " caused the audience to break out in spontaneous applause . One of the only still shots in the movie , Spock crouching down next to Kirk , phasers in hands , was obviously made to look like the 1967 promo shot , many are familiar with . I am not buying it.

    The saving grace of the movie ? Doctor McCoy .Will everyone love it? Of course . The average movie going audience has been force fed a steady diet of sub par films and this one is no different . All the special effects in the world does not a good movie make.

    Rob Norberg Yes you are the only one that did not like star trek. Come on, Why do people even ask this question, you know you are not the only one.

    What part of "Grading and Discussion Thread" don't you get?
    :confused:

    And no, you're not the only one. But rambling on and on and on and on only makes you stutter. You didn't like the movie, well, we get it.

    Seems this thread was moved before ,for what reason,I do not know.Here is my opinion of the film . If someone seems to think that this belongs under a different heading ,then it does not . A discussion board is just that , to spark discussion , not to move posts under some other heading that is 20 pages long,that no one will read. Please allow this thread to stay .

    Is there some legitimate reason you have elected to post this yet again after it's already been incorporated into the official review thread here?

    I certainly can't think of one.

    Thread closed. I strongly suggest you don't start another.
