After watching the three trailers, I really have no feel if this is going to be good or awful, awful.  The music seems to be straight from Batman Begins.

Then again, it's from JJ Abrams and it's got Simon Pegg.  Might be worth a look.

And the chick from House as Kirk's mom?  Really?

Since when have you had trouble just having an arbitrary opinion with no relation to the actual world, Internet Chuck?

The ridiculously good reviews are inaccurate.  Then again, Trek has been so bad for so long, when someone offers up a decent tasting burger, everyone yells, "STEAK!"

The movie is good.  It's a lot of fun, very humorous (the sequence with McCoy and Kirk getting on the Enterprise is hilarious), and the action sequences are great. The plot is bland and full of holes.  But it doesn't matter.  Quinto makes a great Spock and Simon Pegg isn't in enough scenes.  And the new Uhura?  More, please.  Time travel is a big part of this and the way the time loop is open ended made me wonder if there's anything like this in store for Lost.

Well worth watching.  The crowd applauded at the end.

I think this jives with what the review turkeys are saying. None of the reviews I've seen call it great cinema or anything, it's just getting solid marks across the board as a fun summer movie that doesn't worry too much about catering to the Trek geeks. I might have to check it out on the IMAX.

That's exactly what I was hoping for.  Live Free or Die Hard was dumb as a box of rocks, but it was fun as hell to watch, like a summer movie should be.

Hell yes, I was pleasantly surprised by that one. John McClain against a fighter jet? That right there is why bromo sapiens invented talkies.

Not a great movie (weak story and a piss-poor villain), but it's just a lot of fun. Spot-on casting. Well worth the time and money.

I saw it last night.  I agree that the casting was superb, the plot is weak, but it's a pretty fun summer blockbuster.  The main problem I had was I saw the midnight showing last night (yes...I got in), which I really regret because the theater was full of Trekkies, so everyone was clapping after almost every line.  I haven't watched many of the past movies/shows, so I felt like I was watching some big inside joke that I wasn't a part of.  Therefore, a lot of the comedy is reserved for people who are very familiar with the series.  The Live Free or Die Hard comparisons are solid.  It's brainless, summer blockbuster fun that probably would be pretty terrible if not for the cast.

But he saw it first, that's what counts.
