In regard to the review, it certainly gives me hope that non-fans might actually give the film a chance. I really hope that this movies breaks the mold!

I have read a lot of the so-called positive reviews of the er Film. I sit back and I wonder. Did these critics see the same movie I did???

Why? This is Guinness' 250th anniversary, with the same name, brewed in the same place. With its 9000 year lease on the property, I daresay it will still be around in 2264.

Guinness will probably own Anheuser-Busch by that time.

I would say that most of those reviewers weren't so worried about canon and such...

Sure. I read some reviews that said Pulp Fiction wasnt that good yet it's one of my favorites. Most people I know liked the movie but some didnt. Its all personal preference. I also have a relative who thinks Saving Private Ryan is highly overrated but I disagree. To each his own and I certainly wouldnt say there was something wrong with his likes and dislikes. Just different than mine. Oh... we do agree on Pulp Fiction howver.

I say this because having "brands" in the 23rd century wouldn't make much sense without some form of buying and selling.
I miss the BOLDness of Star Trek that would show us a future that is completely different than the one we're living in now.

I think highlighting the fact that we may not be capitalist in the future would be provocative and welcomed and totally in the spirit of Star Trek if it was brought up considering how controversial the economy is today.

The nonexistence of money is only brought up in one movie, First Contact, and that was the last I heard of it since then.

Not quite accurate...the subject of money was brought up in ST:IV,when Gillian had to pay for her dinner with Kirk.

Gillian: "Let me guess...You don't have money in the 23rd century."
Kirk: "Well we don't."
