Awesome! I am getting more and more excited for this movie, and less and less worried, THIS IS GOING TO ROCK!

Default It's only my opinion but...

I'm going out on a limb. It's Scotty he's referring to. I've had reservations about his character since the trailer was released.

I like it that he was "gob-smacked." I have no idea what that means, but it sounds like it's a good thing. At least, I hope it is. Maybe it's something that happened to him deep in the mines of Rura Penthe ...

I, too, am curious about the notable exception he mentioned. I hope it's not Pine/Kirk.

I've always said it and I'll say it again... never trust a movie review ever... withhold ALL judgement good or bad... decide AFTER you see it. Don't be negative and yet also DON'T expect too much or you'll just be disappointed. (Indiana Jones/Crystal Skull comes to mind!)

In other words don't give a crap about what others think about something, decide for yourself by actually going to friggin see it first.

That went without saying, as far as I am concerned.

I think he was referring to the Enterprise.

Whoa! Easy there Turbo. Some People need to be told what to think ...mostly cause they need a instruction manual to breathe correctly. At any rate we are not taking this review as gospel just going on the assumtion that there may be truth to what he says.

You do have a point, though, it is interesting just to see what others are saying first. After all, they have seen 10 times more than about 99% of this forum.

It probably has something to do with Everlasting Gobstoppers (TM).


It's nice to hear more positive reviews of the movie, especially from avowed skeptics.
