Although at times it seems I am "unconditionally" defending this movie, I am NOT. I am truly "on the fence". I like some of what I see and dislike some of it as well. I read JJ's "I didn't get it" line and his want to make it more like Star Wars, and I cringe. Then i read that there were people involved in the writing that ARE Trek fans and Do "get it", and I see that Leonard Nimoy agrees to star in the movie and praises the script (he did refuse to do other movies because of a poor script), so I don't know if I will like this movie or not. Yes, because it is Trek I have a natural bias to believe i will like it. But I will NOT know anything for sure unless I see the movie first.
