You are right. And you know what? The nitpickers are going to hate the movie. If you wrote the names of them now, when May comes, it will be them that starts picking it to pieces.

Heck, he might as well have just barked and rolled over. I swear the only things the negative people will listen to are the negative things.

It gets out that upon viewing the 20 minute preview, some of the reviewers said Kirk didn't seem like Kirk. And you all were like, "Yeah, see. There it is." Meanwhile the rest of the review was, "this was actually pretty good", and the [ignore] function seems to be put to use.

I thought the interview was well played...actually kind of a tease. One word answers, creating a mysterium...especially enraging all the purist and canon-mongers out there..now that is entertainment.

Actually, I LIKE nitpicking on the side. I did it with Lord of the Rings, and enjoyed the films immensely. Of course, the person sitting next to me did not appreciate my whisperings! (No-one else could hear me though, and so that was all right.)

Nitpicking with a funloving nature is fine. I still have the Film Flubs books. The greatest movies made have some pretty laughable foibles, like the man wearing a wristwatch in "The Ten Commandments."

Unfortunately that's not what nitpicking is now. Fans now seem to expect films to be 100% perfect or it sucks. Apparently criticism leaves no room for flawed movies anymore. It's all or nothing. And that's why a lot of scifi movies recently seem to be getting the shaft. Scifi movies used to have exaggerated science with the intent of entertainment. Unfortunately now, such a method is cause enough for someone to beat the **** out of the movie.

Sacrificing logical plot devices like physics often has a way of giving other wise realistic looking movies a cartoonist aspect. Let's face it it really takes more creativity as a writer to fit an idea in line with basic physics than to just break and bend the rules.

And that is one of the many things that is setting the tone...already...for this so called block buster. The more it's defended the more I worry. I certainly hope he has more common sense than to write a cartoon for a block buster.
