Love it for what it is… the continuation of STAR TREK. Amen.

I'm hoping JJ hits the trail and there is a more serious director. JJ is a flash and entertainment guy (hey, I was entertained, I would never deny that).

I would like to see for the next movie more emphasis on story, and a director more ready for that then "shakeycam" would make both myself and my stomach feel better.

Granted, he did trade in some "shakeycam" for "lensflare", but its the same shtick.

I liked the lensflare to a point, but I would concede that maybe he went a bit overboard with it

I never had a problem with the lensflare and i didnt find the shakycam intrusive. Personally I found it gave a strong sense of motion to film. An energy and flow the previous films lacked thanks to more staid camerawork. But that style of shooting with more fluidity to it is commonplace in a lot of big films now anyway. I've come to prefer it as a visual style although it doesn't automatically suit every film. Anyways, im more than happy should Abrams return and if the script manages to be meatier I'm confident he can still do a great job with it.

I was generally very happy with the look of the film. It had an energy to it.

Unfortunately the next movie won't be different. The style has been set and that won't change.
Fast paced, tight dialogue and little explanation as possible on background, who, why and where!

It's possible that they can go a bit deeper while still maintaining that fast paced style. They have the origin story out of the way, which will free up some time now for character development.

The pacey feel of the film was one of its most successful elements I thought. The last thing I want out of the sequel is a two hour movie that feels slower than a funeral. I'd encourage them not to drop that too much. Although a slow down at a couple of points always gives the audience time to catch up a little bit.

I agree.

When you think about the movie it feels and behaves like an extended movie trailer.
I don't believe the next one will be slower or allow more in-depth character development. There will be surprises (with little backstory or explanation). Essentially the characters will be simply dropped into a new storyline and have heaps of grief dumped on them until they win out. Action will be what the next movie about and I doubt very much that we'll ever see anything in the style of TMP. Maybe a TVH though. J.J does have a terrific sense of humor.
