I'm having a hard time grasping the fact that everyone is loving the new film, it's terrible. They take the idea of time travel and peverse it beyond belief. The acting is just as bad as Shatner ever was and while the special effects were okay they filled the screen with too many images at once and made it impossible to follow. Plus, why did eveyone clap when Nimoy appeared, HE CAN'T HEAR YOU. JJ did a second rate job and the franchise should take a cue from the Deforest Kelly and die. Traveling through time to have a conversation with yourself, give me a break, first rule of time travel, that can't happen. I'm no longer proud to call myself a nerd, I'm going to have s-- with a real woman.

It's like you read my mind (apart from the last sentence) this is exactly how I felt during the film but then afterwards I thought well half the original staff are dead or as good as, so why not have a sexy re-boot?

`Well, there are certain things about Star Trek that really ought to be left alone! "Sexy" doesn't mean "better", you know?

`True, but I personally enjoyed the remake. Despite it being full of plotholes and enough white flashes to send you into an epileptic fit.. I'm willing to bet that the next movie will have more substance, since the doorway to new storylines has now been opened. JJ did the best he could, considering what he was up against..

Hm.

`I really enjoyed it. Sure, there are things I might have done differently, but then I don't make movies. They do.
In my opinion (and let me stress that's all it is), this movie brought back a sense of fun that's been missing from Trek lately. I'm still proud to be a geek, and I still love all the other incarnations of Trek over the years. I'm looking forward to the inevitable sequel.

`Agree with scratch.

The main cast have already signed on for two sequels. I for one am looking forward to seeing where they will go with them. Especially since they are considering Khan's character for a remake.

New Kahn?

Shocked

Why, yes. Yes, that would be cool.

`I didn't like everything about the movie, but as scratch I think it was said, I didn't make it so of course there r things that I would have done different. I definitely didn't like the whole Vulcan blowing up thing. But that's my opinion. If anyone is so unhappy with calling him or herself a geek or that upset with sci fi in general, maybe you've lost your love for sci fi? Just wondering. I can't wait til the next movie! Star Trek is the longest lasting and has the most incarnations and episodes and movies than any other sci fi theme BY FAR! Imagine sci fi without Star Trek? It would be pretty different!

As you bought your ticket to see
Captain Zoolander and Pacy from Dawson's Creek,
that sound you heard
was Gene Roddenberry rolling over in his grave.

Trek for Dummies has made the s---load of money as I predicted,
so I'm sure there will be more Trek for Dummies to follow.

This was my biggest gripe with the movie. I thought the movie was entertaining though and I like that a younger generation is getting their own version to fall in love with. I still think Wrath of Kahn was the best movie.

`A lot of people had the same gripes when Next Generation debuted.
"It's not MY Star Trek, so it's not valid!"
I'm happy with the fact that I can enjoy ALL versions of Star Trek, each for its own merits (even Enterprise was ok).
It gives me a far bigger world to play in.

No, Next-Gen was Roddenberry's "reboot"---how he actually envisioned the original series but with fresh goodness as well.
Took a couple seasons to tweak it to smooth perfection, but it was the creator, not some [censored] poser who can't create his own, so he frells with someone elses creation.

For the last 26 years of his life, What Roddenberry stolidly resisted giving the studio is exactly what that [censored] Abrams delivered.

Since his death people who can't do anything so cool, have chosen to deficate on Roddenberry's work; not the first master to suffer such indignity, certainly won't be the last.
The rest of you can enjoy the ride with Captain Zoolander of the starship U.S.S. Basterdize but me?

I've got my own thing and though Trek-like in some respects, it's borne of my imagination.

Oh, not many of you would like it, as there are no pictures for the big words.

`Bear, mind the claws mate, if you take the movie as just a sci-fi film it almost works but what has some of us reaching for our bat-leths is that it is SUPPOSED to be the trek we all love.
Apart from the plot holes that you could push a dyson sphere thru the one idea i did like was that it was in reality an alternative univers so almost none of the trek we know had happened, was going to happen did happen- bugger it i Hate messing around with time lines.
I think the only way to look at it is a totall new start and at least it might help to keep trek alive, but i have ine thing left to say;
JJ DON'T MESS WITH WRATH OF KAHN AS YOU WILL FRACK IT UP111!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone else get the feeling this is where Abrams got the idea for his...flick?

Oh, just you wait, some greedy hump will greenlight a bum, bereft of soul and imagination, to frell over The Wrath of Kahn.

Some joker's remaking Alien for fun and profit---all theirs, not ours.

`I didn't like the film, it is a radically departure from the Trek Universe, and how Trek has been done, and it has no linage back to Roddenberry. At least, OF GODS AND MEN, respects the look and feel of Trek, employs actors, writers, and directors from past Trek series.
