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.

What did you expect, nerdlinger?

I'm just surprised he could hear the applause - or the dialog - through his foam Vulcan ears.

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.

By the way, Weebs, did you sit in the front row in order to ensure that you'd be the one to see it first?

Maybe it's the Smithwick's I've imbibed (Apex, holler) doing the posting here, but this got a laugh out of me.

(Curious where Kurt stole this joke from, though.)

I just saw this movie.  I enjoyed it; it was entertaining.  As a Star Trek fan, I can say that the series had died after Nemesis.  There are only so many movies that you can make that appeal to a core audience, rather than a general one.

I am pleased because this movie was able to respect actual science (namely, quantum mechanics) and create a new direction for Star Trek.  So, there are two timelines in Trek now.  One which has Picard and Janeway and everything like that, and this one which is able to tell new stories completely untethered from the burden of its history.  I completely positive this.

It was great to see both the sci-fi nerds and the general audience watching a Star Trek movie.  The die-hards will be offended because everything they know is over, but it gives the series and the franchise new life, which is exactly what it needed.  I'm pretty sure the folks at Paramount aren't losing any sleep over this.

So, go see it.

I positive this as well.

We get the original crew with all new stories of which is something we haven't had in a while. We also get the possiblity of the two timelines reconverging or something like that.

Good movie.

Because once you've got them on their backs, they can't get away.

No.  You misunderstood me.  Sorry, let me clarify.  Why do you even bother fucking posting stuff like that?
