Preconceptions are normal. Trek is a special case because of many fans insistence on canon. They go in knowing full well that canon is out the window. So enjoyment of the movie aside they watch it knowing that their insistence will not be fulfilled. No that doesnt mean that someone who doesnt like the movie must fall under this category. But for Trek the percentage of people who do fall under it are much higher than average. Actually, off hand I dont think the last couple of big prequels hardly had that issue at all.
