Yes, I'm older than dirt. Yes, I saw the first episode of TOS the night it aired. And I know that there are others like me out there. So I'd like to know if you old Trekies got the same impression I did. Loved the ship. The casting was excellent. Script was good, but not great. Quinto nailed Spock. (Loved the "F-- You, Vulcan Science Academy" scene). Pine is a better actor than Shatner. But the film as a whole lacked - elegance (for lack of a better word). It seemed "heavy handed" in some way. The pace was like a video game. I find more and more films that are using this video game pace. All violence and excitement. The last Bond film is a perfect example. One more thing - as a classically trained musician I was disappointed in the music. Good for a video game - but the end title was a painfully "bumpy" mix of old and new music. The visual was also choppy. I know they were trying to imitate the original, but it was plain awful. (Jerry Goldsmith - we miss you!) But I'd like to see another movie with these actors, and I'd love to see a series with them and this timeline. How 'bout you?
