Default Unconditional Love for this film ... anyone?

Who out there can't wait to see this film and knows they will Love it no matter what they see?

Reboot, Not Canon, Rip-off .... Whatever.

I've seen the trailers and cast photos and I am personally thrilled. The actors may not look exactly like TOS and the ship and effects are more realistic. I feel they are trying to catch the spirit of TOS and even if the story is out of synch with Trek history I'm loving what I have seen so far.

Captian Pike is in it ..... Too Cool!
Kirk is getting it on ..... Sweet
Uhura takes her top off ..... Tasty
Spock gets angry ...... Badass

I love everything trek and have not missed seeing a single feature on the big screen. I'm hoping for IMAX!

Even if it is the worst Star Trek project ever made ..... That's not bad either.

Who out there agrees with me?

Lastly, I've seen a lot of post with the word Frack in it. Frack is BSG so Truck Off ! Keep this site free other SF series/films.

As long as the story is solid, I'm going to be thrilled. From the looks of the trailer and images released, all the adjectives are there, this is going to be something to see, but the story is my only concern. If that delivers, then I'll probably love this film.

You seem very 'up' Sybock, I like that. Of course Sybock was very up in Trek V so the name fits.

Lastly, it looks frack'in awesome - sorry!

I'm hopeful that it'll be a rewarding, enjoyable and successful film.
I won't anticipate it with absolutely boundless, blissful abandon though - I'll approach it cautiously and conservatively, without giving in to the urge to get wildly excited over it.

Think about it this way... there's a chance, however remote we might think it, that the film simply won't be that great. There's also a chance that it'll be merely good, without being exceptional. Then finally there's the possibility that it'll be phenomenal in a way that's almost mind-blowing...
But if you spend months expecting the latter, then anything less will disappoint you deeply. But if you simply hope for an enjoyable film, then you won't run the risk of letting down by your own unrealistic, nostalgia-tinted hopes and fanboyish imaginings. Too much optimism can, sometimes, be another way of setting yourself up for disappointment, especially when you allow something to 'inflate' within your mind, into something far larger than life.

Several of us have already posted many times our unconditional love...

As a matter of fact, and to repeat myself yet again- I prefer a new vision.

Real simple - when I want to 'go back home' - I just pop in a TOS DVD.
I'm ba-aack...

I am embracing this new movie, totally and unconditionally. I'm not saying I have high expectations about it but so long as it captures the spirit of Star Trek, I will be happy. Getting reacquainted with such beloved characters in a completely different way sounds fantastic to me. Plus there's the fact that the space action sequences seem to be totally kickass. What more can a girl ask for? Seriously, I'm really psyched and I can't wait!

Kirk -
"Well... not only..."

I'm going to see the movie and am very excited about it, but I think "unconditional love" is going too far. There are a lot of things that could be done to make me hate the movie, but I won't decide whether I love it or hate it until after I've seen it.
