From TrekWeb.com:

"Early reviews are trickling in as Paramount took out large advertising spreads for STAR TREK NEMESIS in both the L.A. Times and New York Times Sunday editions. Naturally all are positive quotes, and here's a run down: "**** (4 stars) Large-scale...Intense Energy..." Steve Krutzler, TREKWEB.COM (available Friday)
"Action, intensity, and loads of fun!" Bill Bregoli, Westwood One.
"More than just a great Star Trek film-it's just a great film," Mark S. Allen, KMAX-TV/UPN, Sacramento.
"Nemesis is Star Trek at it's absolute best! Spellbindng, amazing, and flawless... It beams the excitement to a whole new level," Earl Dittman, Wireless Magazines.
"Full of dark surprises with a brilliant ending!" Sandy Davis, Daily Oklahoman.
"Probably the best Star Trek film yet, and it's not just for the fans," Jason Rich, Star Trek Communicator.
"Not since Wrath of Kahn has Star Trek been so good," Dan Deevey, Inent.com.
"A darker and edgier Trek," Tim Wassberg, Inside Reel.
"A tremendous Christmas treat," Audrey Berard, Radioscope.
"Star Trek Nemesis is a thrilling adventure that will have your heart racing at warp speed," Tony Toscano, KJZZ-TV/IND, Salt Lake City.
"One of the best Star Trek journeys ever. The crew returns in one of its most unique journeys. This intergalatic adventure has it all: cast, effects, and a great story," Jim Ferguson, KMSB-TV/FOX, Tucson.
"Most exciting Star Trek since Wrath of Kahn," Larry Evans, Space News.
"Great action sequences," Katie O'Grady, KPTV-TV/ABC, Portland.
"Great stuff for virgin Trekkies. Jean Luc Picard is one sexy beast," Jade Alexander, WFOR-TV/CBS, Miami.
"Even if you aren't a sci-fi fan, you'll love Star Trek Nemesis," Guy Ferris, NWCN, Seattle.
"A new frontier in action movies. Brilliant!" Liam Mayclem, KRON-TV/IND, San Francisco.

"A great adventure Star Trek fans will love!" Victoria Snee, KDAF-TV/Dallas.
"I liked it better than Star Wars," David Moss, WJW-TV/Fox Cleveland.

I hope no one's surprised at why some of those buzzy little phrases showing up now are giving me a bad vibe.

True. Glowing reviews given by just about every known critic has always been the kiss of death for any play or motion picture. When critics hate your film, it's usually the most popular film around among the public. When critics are critical, it means they like it, but the film is, in their view too intellectual for the public to understand, because we won't shell out the ticket money to go see it, because in actuality, we're the one's who are smart enough to know that it sucks. But if they're being too kind, it's because the film/play/series is taking it's last breath, and they don't want it to go out without a fitting epithet to carve on it's tombstone.

You are incredibly optimistic. I hope you're right.

This is the only one I'll agree with... but I won't say how.

This is why one should never read reviews... and if you do, never trust them and just form your own opinion after you see it. I liked many a movie that got horrid reviews... though there's no accounting for taste...

I don't get it. A lot of people consider NEM to be a bad movie, but some people like it. And it is their right to utter their opinion. But one-liners can hardly be considered a review.
Besides, it is hard to find good written reviews or even reviews which stick to the basic rules of reviews. So better check out the movie yourself and make up your own mind.
