Unfortunately, for the bottom line, the theater I was in, the earliest showing in the area (7pm) was about 10% of capacity.

I can't tell if this is sincere or humor? I have no problem with either, just aiming for clarification.

Glad to hear you liked it. It's one thing for dozens of people to come out of the film with their preconceptions validated, but for one guy to go in and have his opinion switched in the film's favour is fantastic.

I just posted a short review in the non-spoiler thread... I was very much wrong about the movie- it was FAR better then I thought it would be. Mr. Foot meet Mr. Mouth.

Thanks for clarifying, first of all.

Second -- it's amazing what standing on the other side of the film means, doesn't it? I think your change of mind -- I never doubted your love for TREK to imply a change of heart was needed -- will be repeated many times over this weekend and beyond.

I look forward to finding your review in the other thread, glad you shared thoughts with the rest of the crew.

Wow, BoP???? That's great!

The 7:00 pm showing was packed in my theater and the line for the 10:00 was huge.

Thank you for being open-minded enough to give the movie a chance and for being big enough to admit that you were wrong about it.
I anticipate some people will be so bent on finding problems with the movie that they won't allow themselves to enjoy it.

You know damn well I was looking for them... and more then once I was like "Why the #@&# are there classic cars in Iowa and roads still made for them even!!!" but they were few enough and far enough between to not ruin the movie.

In all fairness, I don't think the roads were made for classic cars like Uncle's Vette. Kirk still rides a future-bike that has wheels, which implies not every vehicle is a flying Jetson briefcase in the 23rd.

Roads are fairly standard and ubiquitous technology, and their usefulness has yet to become outdated. It's just hard to improve on some ideas.
