    Am I the only person on the planet that *hates* the JJ Abrams Original Series reboot? I also *liked* The Phantom Menace, FWIW.

    I don`t like the JJ Abrams Star Trek. And The Phantom Menace is pretty terrible, but Attack of the Clones is WORSE.

    I liked the first one, I thought it was pretty awesome actually but this one I think just looks like overkill. I love action and films like Transformers (while not `great`) are built for it.

    Star Trek for me is a simple concept... it doesn`t have to be engorged with action, The Wrath of Khan hardly had any but it was by far the best of all the Star Trek movies - simplicity is key for me.

    @MacGuffin, nope, I`m with you, I think Abrams is overrated

    and I also really liked Phantom Edit, and episodes 2 and 3 weren`t terrible either. in fact, I went back and watched original trilogy not to long ago, and aside from MAJOR plot points, the movies were very blah. Episode 6 was practically unbearable, and ewoks are infinitely worse than JarJar.

    people hate phantom menace because it was the first of the new films (people got over themselves and rate return of sith highly), also because they think anakin is `whiny.` go rewatch how whiny a 15 year old Luke is, 10 year old Anakin isn`t nearly as bad, not to mention 5 years less mature.

    For that reason alone, I`ll go to see this...

    NO!

    Star Trek is NOT a bloody action genre! Spend less money on 3D masturbation and more on the damn script!

    Maybe they should do a cross-over film. Like Aliens vs Predator.

    Yeah i`ll pass thx.. saw the last one.. totally destroyed star trek... reboots are just another way of saying `we have no ideas. lets redo what we did and just make $`.. actually that`s not true, i won`t pass, i`ll see it when the free internet showing is on, but no way i`ll drop more than 0c on it.

    I think the main thing that ruined the last film for me was the way Kirk moved from being some jerk cadet to the captain of a starship in the space of just one mission. I`m all for suspending disbelief, and of course the Kirk character is a self-important jerk anyway, but really that`s just stretching the credulity of the audience a little too far, even for people that might otherwise swallow narratives involving starships capable of faster-than-light travel, utopian ideals, and human co-operation with alien races (when we can`t even achieve peace amongst ourselves).

    MacGuffin - if only that were the only bit that bothered me. But I`m a trek dork so naturally I spot many more violations of Treklore. But, I figure mediocre Trek is better than no Trek. And it was better than the last 3.... first 3? {I-III} star whores films.

    Boy, they`re doing an awful lot of jumping off things.

    I remember the Enterprise saucer section crash in Generations being an incredible "omg whaaaaaat?" moment, as it was so out of character for Trek as a whole.

    Trek has never been about violence and action and explosions for me, so when it did happen it stood out and had an impact.

    I don`t think it`s going to have the same impact for me now that the entire film seems to be violence action and explosions from title to credits.

    At the risk of sounding like Comic Book Guy, I wonder if everything that made Trek stand out as special is just going to be lost in the process of turning it into just another action series.

    Star Trek has the best fan fiction films.
    Star Trek New Voyages has done some very good work. The costumes and the sets look as if they really were used on the original show. The plots are Star Trek authentic as well, more story driven, less action.

    And the popularity of their fan films is what gave Paramount the idea that people would accept new actors as Kirk & Spock. They`ve gotten some of the original cast to do parts as well. Here`s Walter Koenig as a really old Chekov.

    I`ve not seen any of these 3D films yet. I turned down an extension of my contract in the games industry last week, though, so I am at this time a lady of leisure once again. That being the case, I`m going to indulge in the rare pleasure of going to the cinema during the daytime tomorrow, and getting the whole theatre practically to myself. (I know, I know - it sounds sad as hell. But tbh I don`t get to do it often enough, and I never quite understood how sitting in the dark with another person, ignoring them for the full two hours, was somehow more sociable than going and doing the same thing on your own). Anyways, I`ll be seeing either Cloud Atlas (great book), Zero Dark Thirty (propaganda fest for the Bush Reich - yuck), or indulging in some mindless nonsense like Die Another Day (I`m leaning that way). Unless one of you can recommend some 3D thingamijigger instead?

    @gerry: nice usage of "were" instead of "was" there. What subtle violations of the Trek Original Series canon did you spot in the JJ Abrams reboot?

    @ MacGuffin - the new polarized 3D effect is quite good. Not at all like the old red/green glasses that were never quite in focus.

    I recommend you try it.

    "What subtle violations of the Trek Original Series canon did you spot in the JJ Abrams reboot?"
    Where to start?
    Spock {Nimoy} would never violate the temporal prime directive by giving Scotty the equations years before he invented them.
    The equations Spock gave Scotty were to beam from one ship to another at warp, NOT from a planet to a ship that is already 3 hours away... way out of range.
    Spock would not have a relationship with Uhura because he`s already bonded to T`Pring and he`s not in his 7 year pon far cycle.
    etc, etc, ad naseum

    But, it`s still a rousing good action picture loosely based on Star Trek, so I liked it.

    P.S. Told`ya I was a trek dork

    @gerry: my were/was observation was a straight-up compliment. Interesting mistakes spotted there. Though with the observation about Spock being unable to have a relationship with Uhura whilst simultaneously being bonded to T`Pring I suspect you are simultaneously demonstrating how much you know about Vulcans and how little you know about straight men! ;) I don`t see any 3D offerings on at the cinema right now, but when this Trek comes out I might break my duck with the new polarised 3D technology then.

    MacG - Your description of your male coworkers reminds me that it`s better to have a dog than a wife. A dog doesn`t care if you were playing with another dog. A dog is cheeper to feed and is always happy to see you, no matter who`s perfume it smells. And a dog doesn`t mind if you bring another dog home to play with together.
