If the film is littered with lens flares, then I'll know that Abrams was in charge.
Either of these guys could have taken him in three rounds
I like the new cast...Chris Pine etc...tough loss Yelchin aka Chekov...
I always thought that Star Trek on television was better than the movie versions.
Just because a movie has a big budget, doesn't guarantee success.
LOL....just look at Water World, and the transformer movies.
BTW.....Pacific Rim made the transformer movies look like total junk by comparison.
As a long time Trek fan, I only saw the first movie and that was enough for me, the second was a mix of Space Seed and Wrath of Khan and I've been
seeing bit's here and there, but I am interested in a new series their making that looks promising and of course Star Trek Mission New York in September!
I think the Star Trek reboot is one of the best that I've seen.
I like the cast and scripts and the new ship. I like the back story of Kirk's dad and how Kirk's character starts as a rebellious mess.
When Spock and his significant other get in nasty human fights I think that Spock's reactions are funny as hell. Poor logical guy.
Just saw the new movie in 3D with my 15 year old son. He loved it. I loved it. Glad I left the office early today. Time well spent.
Mixed feelings on the first two. As a long time trekkie, I really wanted to like them and, while I don't exactly hate them, I just didn't like them as much as I wanted to. Still, if I get the chance, I'll see what the third one has to offer.
I liked the plot in "Star Trek" 2009, where Kirk finds Leonard Nimoy as Spock from the future ( Spock Prime ), waiting in the ice cave on Delta Vega...
Ive been a Trekkie my whole. I really like the new movies. I particullarly like the respect given to the origional cast..what I mean is that I'm enjoying the new casts take and incorporation of nuances from the origional cast..secondly, the special effects have been stellar.
We saw it last night. My wife and I both enjoyed it.
As much as I like the 2 Abrams movies as simple, summer action movies, they did't feel like Star Trek to me. The had none of the nuance or social commentary Roddenberry worked so hard to impart. This one seemed to be a small step back in that direction. At least it did to me.
Agree with all of this. Especially enjoy the new Bones and Scottie (Scotty?). It's entertaining.
The color of Finn's skin had absolutely no bearing on the story at all. I thought that Boyega did a great job in that role.
Frankly, neither did Sulu's sexual orientation.
Obviously skin color and sexual orientation matters to a certain type of person..............I've come across them on a daily basis (for obvious reasons).
I enjoyed Heroes. Zachary Quinto played a dark methodical character in Heroes. When I heard that he was cast as Spock in the reboot I had high hopes. I think the entire bridge crew has been cast very well. Someone mentioned Montgomery Scott......Simon Pegg is bizarre in the best way. Good cast.
I'm happy and content that I can compartmentalize OG Star Trek (which, btw, the current Spock can't stand) from the JJ Abrams version.
If I'm entertained - it's fine.
I find both great.
Treating the original of either Star Trek or Star Wars as holy ?
We flew out of San Diego on Thursday, we didn't arrive.
(I played outside as a kid...)
I saw it last night. People who are Star Trek fans (like myself) will be pleased. It's MUCH more Trek then the last two movies. I also noticed that there's a few nods to the show Enterprise (because remember that it took place before the original series timeline) so there's respect for cannon. It's also mercifully free of lens flare! It felt like this movie was made by people who actually like and know Star Trek.
And I have to say that Karl Urban as McCoy is amazing. It's like he's channeling a perfect DeForest Kelly!
If you can catch a non-3D show do it because the 3D is terrible.
Just so we are clear "The Force Awakens" is NOT a re-boot since it continues the story line from A New Hope/Empire Strikes Back/Return Of The Jedi trilogy.
The J.J. Abrams Star Trek films are flawed but are WAY better than last 5 films.
