Default The first twenty-five minutes...

Here is a article from The Movie Blog... or you can read it here http://www.themovieblog.com/2009/01/...inutes-of-trek


No, you don’t get to see it, but it appears the studio decided that to curb some of the dissenters they would treat select members of the media to an advanced screening of sorts.

25 minutes of the new Star Trek film was shown to select media and we have Jonathan Llyr from Hardcore Nerdity offers up his take on the whole thing here:
I’ve been skeptical about this movie from the beginning, but was trying to remain cautiously optimistic about the whole thing. I like Abrams, and never had any doubt that he would make a fine action picture. But would it be Star Trek?
The answer is - holy **** yes.
This movie is going to blown your brains out. I was gob-smacked at the production values, size and scope. All of the actors (with one notable exception) are bang on. I still have a few issues with the look of the bridge and the ship, but those issues have shifted to the background.
Since I haven’t yet seen the whole thing, I have no idea if the entire movie holds together. But from what I’ve seen, we are all going to have a great ride.
And man are you ever going to love Chekov. Never thought I would type that.
I wonder who the exception will be? Clearly not Chekov. I think considering how iconic each member of this cast is if only one is off I anticipate a lot of hate spilled in that direction.
I have been insanely hopeful for this movie and haven’t seen anything to take away from that. With any luck this 25 minute bit they were exposed to represents the whole movie.

Pretty much anyone who has seen parts of the movie have given it a ringing endorsment. Kevin Smith, Leonard Nimoy and his wife..ect. Given all the speculation one way or another ...I have been and will continue to be, very hopeful of the quality of this movie.

Y'know, I think the best endorsement for this film is when people with actual doubts see it and change their minds. Especially when some traces of those doubts remain afterward. It shows they're not just being blinded by 'teh pretty'.

We'll probably all have different opinions about which actors capture their roles well, and I doubt anyone's gonna be 100% satisfied in that regard.

This guy has the same exact issue with what we've seen so far.
I've always said I can over look them if they have an amazing script and scope. He says they become background noise...

I'm astonished, firstly that someone out there thinks as I do and who's perspective so coincides with mine that I feel I have been told very emphaticaly that none of it will matter.

This is the first time that I feel someone said. "You're right, It looks bad, but I've seen it, it's amazing." ~

I trust that. After reading it. I feel calm.

I am glad, Saquist, I pointed out something that we agree on--Phew! I didn't think it could happen. Hey Zim, your link works fine. You may have to scroll down to read the article. I suppose I could change it. Okay I will...

Well, it may not even be an actor who's part of the 'classic' crew, it could be Nero, or Ayel, or Pike, or one of the Kirk/Spock parents.
