^ because some of us would rather stay hopeful because of our fondness for Star Trek than to poo poo it.

theres no point in being negative, its happening now and i think people should just keep a very open mind to things being different

It is my fondness for TOS that makes me wary of what's being done...

That and the overall track record of remakes and reboots over the last 15 years or so...

Do we get "The Fugitive" or the first "Addams Family" or do we get "Starsky and Hutch," "The Brady Bunch," "Dukes of Hazzard," "SWAT," "The Beverly Hillbillies"...shall I go on?

I agree with what you said, but there will always be somebody who can't live the day out without finding something to complain about.

Yip. TOS will always be TOS and have the appeal that only that series can. What this movie has to do is to take that feeling and supplement it with a modern and vibrant attitude to reflect the world that we now live in and hopefully continue to provide an upbeat and optimistic view of the future in these turbulent times. The world moves on.....so must Trek.

They could have done all that without doing TOS...

This and the general spirit of the thread-opener point out the important difference between judging a film and pre-judging one.

There's no reason at all why the new TREK can't or won't be judged on its own merits, like any other creative effort... after we actually SEE it. That's a big difference from those, a vocal minority, who already don't like it for reasons they can't even substantiate other than their own inherent bias against it from the start.

How can you be so enthusiastic about it when we don't know much about it?
Positive thinking?

Once was a time when we heard the next Trek movie would find the Enterprise crew tackling the monumental subject of finding God...in a movie William Shatner would direct himself, there was much excitement...and we got STV:TFF.

We were pretty much promised the greatest TNG movie ever...and got Nemesis.

I don't get excited just because there's a movie called Star Trek in the works...

I'm deciding on whether this movie is good or bad based on critic reviews. I probably don't even need to see it, actually. Ebert and Roper will tell me what to think. What an efficient world we live in.
