I loved this Movie more than I can put into words(but I'll try). I love that they nailed the essence of the Characters...that all the Actors were note perfect on playing their parts...otherwise they would have lost me...and it wouldn't have felt like my Star Trek, that I grew up with...BUT IT DID!!!

I love the amount of research the Writers did to make sure it was done right! I LOVE all the references from past Star Trek Movies(and TV Episodes), that made me feel like I had come Home. I loved that they got Nimoy to play Spock again, and feel his role was crucial to the storyline...and really helped to bridge the gap.

My only hope now is, that they keep the same Writers & J.J.Abrams for MANY more years to come! They accomplished what seemed impossible...and won over "old school" Trek Fans like Me...and THAT...was no easy task.

Amen.

But, I have to say that the flyby at spacedock gave me goosebumps (just as the flyby in TMP did), and the scene at Titan was breathtaking. Karl Urban was by far the most fun to watch, and nailed his character.

Wow! Harsh, but accurate!

lol

I wonder if the next topic will have something to do with assimilation into the "new Star Trek that everyone has to like."

Default Oh baby I like it raw

Seriously, I have no problems with writers who go the tenth times over their manuscript or directors who reedit their movie years afterwards. But often the first, raw shot does not need any refinement as it is already fine.
