How about a super-intelligent machine with absolute power trying to contact God via radio? Or thinking that if humans infest God's planet that he/she/it needs help getting rid of them?

Or whales from space? And then simply leaving the lowly humans that wiped them out alone?

Or Klingon general who quoted Shakespeare during battle?

Or aliens exposing their knee-genitals in the extreme cold for all to see? Personally, mine dont like cold air or water.

We can go on about those silly things also... but they dont bug me either.

Where did that ridiculousness come from? I always found it rather silly and unexplained.

A fictional script written by humans for humans, with a flair for some of the best human drama ever written?

I don't mean to be a jerk, I just think Trek's best film work pre-JJ has been from Nick Meyer.

Ah, well I can't fault you for that. DS9 had a very nice element of spirituality with the Bajorans and the Cardassians respective gods' getting pissed off, and it was never done to a point where it pulled you out of the episode. You had religious zealots and pilgrims, the disillusioned masses and the fear of god, all pretty believable. Pretty unique for Star Trek.

I loved the movie. I gave it a 10/10 when I first saw it. Then, I went back to watch it the next day, and it still got a 10/10. Then, I went to watch it like three weeks later, and it still got a 10/10.

How do I know it was that good to me?

At the end of the movie, me and my friends stayed out in the parking lot talking about it for almost two hours. That sealed the deal for me. That, and when the TOS music came on, my best friend turned to me and said, "Don't start crying!" I didn't, but that's not the point.

The point (for me) is that the movie made me enjoy Star Trek again, and for that, I am eternally grateful to Orci, Kurtzman, Abrams, and the entire cast and crew.

Here's hoping STXII is just as exciting and invigorating as STXI.

If you take a movie for what it is, without any preconception, most of them are fine, including TFF. But when we consume a book or a movie or whatever else, we usually expect something and judge the resp. piece of art in conjunction with our expectations.
having that attitude is probably what allows me to like nemesis, most people seem not to care for that one much.

it just does not work for me as far as XI and V are concerned.
