Our local movie reviewer also does the food reviews and thinks Tex Mex is the same is Cancun Style Mexican Food.

No... My goal is this.

I will do my best to get a job at a movie theater again so I can watch it 2-3 days in advance, or beg my previous manager and good friend to let me screen it with them. That way I do not waste my money if the movie sucks.

Hey, if you can pull that off, I'd be impressed...I'd also think the theater owner would be in deep doo doo with Paramount...

I was just offering advice on the Critic thing...the fact that the film critic also reviews food doesn't detract from his ability to review a movie...I know that I believe I can recognize both good food and a good movie. The main point is just to get to know how a critic thinks (and find a critic not a reviewer...you want someone who discusses dialogue, plot construction, camera work, acting...not just "here's the story") and then use his/her reviews intelligently. It isn't necessary to agree with the person, only to understand what he/she thinks is "good" in relation to what you think is good.

Oh, as an employee and manager, you have to screen the movie to make sure their are no problems with the print or the download.

but, if I am not working their, then yeah... that is a no no, but not unheard of.

There are tons of prescreen events in larger cities; I have gotten tickets to many of these quite easily and cheaply (or free) in Boston for various blockbuster movies...Just keep an eye out when the time nears.

By that time, this board will already be filled with full spoilers as critics and other prescreen fans will leak the entire premise to full details of the movie.
I'm betting we know most of the plot within a few months anyway...but I'm going to avoid reading this information if I can.

I gotta say this film doesn't appeal to me yet, I need to know how it relates to the 24th century. I'm vehemently against recastings in any case also I find prequels a instant turn off add to that the fact that I find TOS cheesy, I think I'm gonna wait till it's on TV or something
